* If you prepare UPDATE packages for 03.70-04.20 games make sure to change all /dev_bdvd references in EBOOT.BIN/self/sprx files to /app_home

================

What do you need:

* A PC and a PS3 and wired LAN (and some brains)
* Wired LAN connection from your PS3 to the local network

* multiMAN 04.05.01 [DEX] installed on your PS3
* ProDG / TargetManager installed on your PC

* mmDM (DEX Game Mounter) installed on your PC

================

On your PC (one-time setup):

mmDM:
* Start mmDM (DEX Game Mounter)
* If you get warnings about ProDG, ignore and continue
* Click the [FOLDER-ICON] button and browse to the game backups folder on your hdd/usb
* mmDM will show your games
* Pick one game and click “MOUNT >” button
* If you run into 1002 error problems, change the mount-point-drive to O: or another drive letter

ProDG/TargetManager:
* Install and configure ProDG / PS3 Target Manager to have your DEX PS3 visible in “Debugging Station (DECHA00J / …. )”
* Connect to your PS3 (F7)
* Make sure that you have “Reset Mode” set to “System Software Mode” -> “Target -> Reset Mode -> System Software Mode”
* Reset your PS3 -> “Target -> Reset”
* Wait for reset to complete

* Right-click on your target PS3 name and select “Set File-Serving Directory (app_home/)”
* Select drive/path Z: (or O: or the one you used earlier – IMPORTANT: it must be the same drive letter as in mmDM)
* Select your PS3 under “Debugging Station …” and press F7 (or mouse right-click -> Connect)

================

On your PS3:

multiMAN
* Start mM
* Go to “Settings” -> “Network Servers”
* Add your PC as a network server (/net_host) – enter your PC IP address and leave the default port
* Go to “Games” column
* Click “Refresh” and wait for it to complete
* You should see the games from your PC (a little globe icon in right-hand corner of the icon)
* Pick a game and press [X]

================

After you complete all this one-time setup you will have two choices:

— Activate/mount games on your PC manually:
* Have ProDG running on your PC and connected to your target PS3
* Have mmDM running on your PC
* Double click a game (or right-click -> “Convert EBOOT to DEX” and double-click)
* Launch game from /app_home on your PS3

or

— Have multiMAN remotely activate games via mmDM
* Have ProDG running on your PC and connected to your target PS3
* Have mmDM running on your PC
* In multiMAN – select a network game and click [X] and play from /app_home

================================

Setting up ProDG (with pictures):

* Connect your PS3 to LAN with cable (no Wi-Fi) and setup the Network in XMB->Network Settings
* Install and configure ProDG / PS3 Target Manager to have your DEX PS3 visible in “Debugging Station (DECHA00J / …. )”
* Click the green-refresh-arrows to scan your local network for a DEX PS3

* Hopefully your PS3 will appear, so right-click -> Add target

* Make sure that you have “Reset Mode” set to “System Software Mode” -> “Target -> Reset Mode -> System Software Mode”

* Make sure that mmDM (DEX Mounter) is running on your PC and a game is mounted to Z: drive
* Right-click on your target PS3 name and select “Set File-Serving Directory (app_home/)”
* Select drive/path Z: (or O: or the one you used earlier – IMPORTANT: it must be the same drive letter as in mmDM)

* Select your PS3 under “Debugging Station …” and press F7 (or mouse right-click -> Connect)

* Reset your PS3 -> “Target -> Reset”
* Wait for reset to complete

* mmDM

* multiMAN (network games have a little globe in the right-hand corner of the icon)
