Gaia Manager is a backup manager. As of version 2.00 it supports CFW 3.55 and includes the lv2 patch code. It is no longer being developed.


The download archive has three different versions of Gaia manager for you to choose from. Each version will install games to a different folder (if you refuse to install games in the install directory, which is recommended).

Each version and the folder it will install to is listed below:

  • UP0001-GAIA01985_00-7679866932773369-GAMES.pkg - dev_hdd0/Games (Recommended)
  • UP0001-GAIA01985_00-7679866932773369-GAMEZ.pkg - dev_hdd0/GAMEZ
  • UP0001-GAIA01985_00-7679866932773369-BDRIPS.pkg - dev_hdd0/BDRIPS
  • Additionally, if you select 'YES' at the first prompt when first running Gaia Manager your games will install to: dev_hdd0/game/GAIA01985/games (Not recommended as you will lose all your backups if you remove Gaia Manager)

V2.02 (3.55 CFW only)

  • I changed the payload loader function, it should work also for people with problem with old Gaia.

V2.01 (3.55 CFW only)

  • It does not try to load the syscall every time you start Gaia Manager, but only the first time. that should be fix some crashes when reopening Gaia Manager.
