    This morning finally I received my PS3 3.55 - 2000-A CEX

    Ive installed Rebug 4.81.2 – Cobra 7.5 – Toolbox 2.02.12 –

    Ive made the console DEX following some YT tutorial (not really sure as the Why i needed to do that but I still did it)

    Now,I managed to get 1 backup of each platform to work, but not always. I don't really know what I'm doing when I get the game from Multiman to mount (??) correctly and then showing up on XMB

    Im sooooo confused and everything out there is confusing too

    Ive been at it for the past 4h and Im a bit tired. Sorry if any of this makes no sense but I hope somebody understands what I am saying.

    i.e. I seem to gather that when the Multiman Icon is showing "multiMAN" is when I get the games to load correctly but when it shows as "multiMAN (DEX)" is when I click X on the game within multiMAN, the system switches to XMB and nothing happens, no golden disc to click on...

    Gah, I don't even know how to explain myself...Hope someone can shed some light

    Fun facts I think I've gathered:

    - when selecting a game within multiMAN (DEX), the game does not mount correctly onto XMB to then be launched
    - I am not sure how to switch between multiMAN and multiMAN (DEX)
    - Trying to launch PS2 games via webMAN and ps2 Classic Launcher does not work for me
    - PS2 ISOs do not need to be converted to PS2 classic format if in multiMAN, but when in multiMAN (DEX) it asks me to
    - PS2 and PS3 titles seem to mount from multiMAN, system sends me to XMB where then I can launch the game (golden disc icon)
    - PSX games simply boots from within multiMAN

    Soooo confusing :/

    Ok Nevermind - it seems I kinda figured it out

    Cobra mode is my friend

    Im still not sure as to why in the beginning of the process I converted to DEX but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Thanks for your help anyways

    I would just run REBUG CFW if you just want games/homebrew.
