Which homebrew do you suggest as a minimal File Manager?

    Hello!

    I believe that at the moment the only thing I really need from HEN is the ability to transfer files between USB and HDD (I might also need to install a RAP file at some point, but that's another story), and for that I need a File Manager.

    Looking at the HEN compatibility chart, there are many options for this purpose, and all of them offer a lot more than just a File Manager...

    The thing is, I am clumsy and new to PS3 stuff, and I have kids at home which might be too curious, so I am actually looking for a File Manager that is as minimal as possible. Anything beyond basic FTP functionality is an unnecessary risk for us (although if any of those homebrew is also capable of installing RAP files then it will be a bonus - even though I am not sure I really need it).

    I am not sure, but from what I've read on HEN threads, it seems to be that if I choose a plugin rather than a regular homebrew, then those plugins need to be enabled or won't show up in the XMB, and this is done by booting up the PS3 with the "boot_plugins.txt" file on USB drive. If this is correct, then for my purposes it would be a great security feature (my kids could not use the File Manager if I don't give them the USB drive), hence in this case I would strongly favor a plugin.

    So which homebrew or plugin would you suggest for my case? Thanks a lot! :)

    @aldostools used to have just a file manager variant of IRISMAN which I loved but can't seem to find a link for it. Maybe he could help.

    You just need to repack the latest build of IRISMAN with the a different title id (e.g. IRISMAN01) and set FileManager=1 in settings.ini
    Also change the ICON0.PNG and the title to File Manager in PARAM.SFO

    BTW I updated IRISMAN to mount PSXISO with cobra opcode like webMAN does for PS3HEN users.
    I will upload the file when I get back home, I forgot to update the repo in github this morning.

    Well there you go from the man himself. A way to get just a nice fully functional file manager. I would do it for you but alas I don't have access to a Windows PC and can't find tools for OSX to do this but it isn't hard with ps3tools

    Multiman is pretty simple to use.

    Yes but the NTFS support can be a pain but if you want you can lock the app to boot into mMOS for just file manager use as well.

    Hello aldostools, I was wondering if this feature of mounting PSXISO games is already integrated in IRISMAN v4.84.4 (HEN Edition)?
    I've been trying to run some backups of my own games that are in the .cue/.bin format. But none of them has been able to run.

    IRISMAN recognizes the games properly (they show up on the game list) but whenever I try to run any of them I get a black screen, the console shuts down and also the led indicator turns off (I read a post about other member having this same issue when loading a ps2iso). Any ideas of what I may be doing wrong? Can you please point me in the right direction? Thanks for your help.

    I have a Super Slim PS3 running HFW 4.84.2, HEN 2.02 and IRISMAN v4.84.4 (HEN Edition)
