HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN PS3 XMB THEME QUICK GUIDE

1. Download the Official PS3 Theme tool here.
2. Extract it to a folder.
3. Navigate to the folder.
4. In the folder there will be a sample folder, a GimConv folder, and a p3tcompiler.exe, plus some other files.
5. Just drag and drop the .xml file onto the p3tcompiler.exe file.
6. This will create a bunch of .gim files and a sample.p3t file in the sample\01\ directory. Ignore the .gim files and grab that sample.p3t file. Take the sample.p3t file and put it on a memory stick in the following location: PS3->THEME->
7. Now take the memory stick to your PS3 and plug it in. Navigate to the theme setting and you will have an option to install. Choose install and you will have your new sample theme.
8. To make your own CUSTOM theme, just edit all of the .png and .jpg files in the "sample" directory, and re-run these steps. Keep the image pixel size the same and have fun!
