eEID Root Key Dumper flat_z has ported his “amazing” EID Root Key Dumper to dump the root key of your PS3 directly from GameOS on 4.50 (CEX).

It is not longer needed to downgrade to 3.55 to get your root key, which is useful to access the content of your PS3 HDD on the PC or convert your CEX to DEX, among other uses.



* install package

* Unplug all USB devices

* run eEID_RKDumper from XMB

* It will show a black screen (no GUI) for 10-15 seconds, then 3 beeps and restart the console automatically

* FTP (other otherwise) retrieve your eid_root_key / PCK1 from /dev_hdd0/tmp/eid_root_key   or for 4.50 in /dev_hdd0/game/FLTZ00010/USRDIR

PS3 Cloud Drive M.H.A.Q.S. has released PS3 Cloud Drive v1.1.5.

Current Features:

  • The application works with Google Drive. You will need a Google account to use it.
  • Google Drive comes with 15GB of free space compared to PS Plus’s 1GB.
  • Remote Authorization through “OAuth 2 for Devices” does not need you to give application any of your personal information.
  • Bi-Directional Sync is possible. The application will sync your saves to the cloud and will download them to your hard drive.
  • Resume support is present and you can quit the application any time you want. The app will pick up from where it left off.
  • Resumable uploads and partial responses are supported.
  • Save Revision and pinning/sticky support.
  • Save Difference and update will only sync data that has changed to cut bandwidth usage.
  • gzip compression for faster transfers. This is to save bandwidth on those ridiculously big “replays” and saves from some games.

Planned Features for next releases:

  • Selective Sync. Users can select the game-saves they want to sync to the cloud. This also requires a GUI for the user to select which saves he needs transferred. Most likely a Dual panel layout.
  • PSX/PS2 card slot sync. This might have made into the current release but I need to test some stuff before I put this in.
  • Multiple Playstation 3 units support per account. A user may sign into a PS3-Cloud-Drive account and download saves from another ps3. This feature is highly dependent on selective sync.
  • Save Resigning. Oh yeah, I know this’ll have to be done some day to make this app super awesome on all levels. But it’s prolly way down the road.

PSChannel deroad has released PSChannel v1.10.

Fixed tons of bugs
Removed the “install theme feature” since no one makes themes for my homebrew

Added game update support with autodetection of games (NO homebrew support!! NO search mode, NO support for backups folders!!)

Estwald/D_Skywalk have released Iris Manager v1.49.3..

Iris Manager


* If you load a game for PS3 (not PSN, a disc game), some data are stored in a file (lastgame). Holding down L1 on startup, when Iris Manager is loading again, it will load automatically the last game, unless their presence is not detected or error.

* If in the root directory of the game (where usually the PS3_DISC_SFB is found), you put a file name containing ps2disc.txt with the destination path (eg. /dev_usb000/dataps2 or /dev_hdd/GAME/dataps2), that folder is mounted as /dev_ps2disc.

This feature can be useful for games like Sing Star, that can read tracks from PS2 discs.

Download it from the Brewology Store.

deank has released multiMAN v04.18.04 update.


04.18.04 (2012-01-15)
* Fixed a bug introduced in mM 04.17.00: mM skipping 1-letter filenames (x.yyy) when copying folders
* When on-screen-keyboard (OSK) is used and user cancels the entry mM will not accept the entered text
* Created proper ring-buffer for mp3 playback which should mean no more glitches/pauses of the music
* Restored support for GLC3.PNG for themes in 8×4 mode
* Increased screenshot JPEG quality to 90% and 1MB buffer size
* Toolbox/IPF from /app_home will be activated when you quit mM with {PS} button on 4.30 Rogero CFWs

The bug about skipping 1-letter filenames is present in versions 04.17.00/01/02/03/04/05, 04.18.00/01/02/03 so if you’re on one of these versions deank strongly suggests that you update to 04.18.04. Thanks to GotIt4Free for sounding the alarm.

* Changed method for scanning of control-info for eboot.bin/self/sprx files
* [* Install Package Function] won’t allow adding the same PKG twice and allows ‘deselecting’ when “Standard” method is used

There are some other changes/improvements, too.

p.s. Have in mind that the change/fix for checking if games require higher firmware will make mM scan (“Verifying data…”) your games at least once.
Download it from the Brewology Store.


Download multiMAN ver 04.18.04 UPD (20130115).zip (5.78MB)

Includes CEX, DEX and STEALTH updates.

Update is also available online for download directly from multiMAN.
