its a great app, but in addition to stability, it needs a GUI and better integration into the system
Ok, here is the official answer from Estwald about the sudden shutdown exiting from this app.
Some firmwares doesn't have disabled the write protection that prevents to write to LV2, so if you change it you will get a kernel panic when you exit, unless you disable the protection before start the application.
That is something difficult to achieve, especially in firmwares like 3.41 and 3.55, which require using a function to map memory in an area accessible LV1 to LV2 (using peek and poke) modify LV1 with it and since then, you can modify LV2 code.
From Iris Manager, you won't have that problem because it already takes care of that: the problem is so complex that not really worth doing otherwise in these firmwares, and even could cause an error in the Managers if it's done earlier.
If you're using Multiman, start it first and exit, then active the Fan Control. Since you have already patched the LV1, it should work fine when you exit.
So if you go into rebug toolbox and alter the settings one should not have to go into mM first. Thanks for the heads up I am gonna test when I get home and report back.
@atreyu187 Any update regarding the above?
Sorry not home yet but I promise I will post back.
what are normal temperatures in idle with original cooler and without fan control?
what settings do i use in Fan control to have it change the speeds automatically so the temps stay around 60c?
@ grange the temperature depends of where you live and how fresh is the place where you have the PS3. But if the CPU/RSX temp is higher than 75C (167F), consider to change the termal paste and/or add more ventilation to your PS3.
@ atreyu if you make changes using the toolbox, you don't have to go to multiMAN. Indeed Rebug's toolbox is based in part on multiMAN's code.
So wait. If I change anything and it shuts down afterwards, then it doesn't do anything? Because I wanted to try it but I kinda got scared that it would cause a problem later so I just wanted to go back to default.
