PS3 Tutorial How to Create a GameBoot using Custom GameBoots Tool - Sorry my English!

Using Custom GameBoots tool for first time:

1. double click on "Custom GameBoots.bat"

2. will open a little Image software - edit the image (do not change the name "gameboot", extension ".png", dimensions "512x54")

3 will open a "CFW Gameboot MENU" pop-up - choose to which CFW the gameboot shall be (3.55, 4.21, 4.30, 4.41, 4.46, 4.50, 4.53, 4.55) - The option "[0] Create gameboot package" redirect to "Install Gameboot MENU"

4. will open a "Install Gameboot MENU" pop-up - choose the way you want to install the gameboot

ZIP: will create a .zip to install with multiMAN - double click on multiMAN/MMOS

PKG: will create a .pkg to install the tool "Custom GameBoots" ("XMB Manager Plus (XMBM+) Installer" litlle mod) if select this way, will open a pop-up "Gameboot NAME", type a name and click OK.. have the option to create or not PKG, in this way it is possible to create a collection of gameboots without creating always PKGs, choose the gameboot you want with "Custom GameBoots"

Manually: "Custom GameBoots.bat" leave the "custom_render_plugin.rco" in his directory until next use. Just copy "custom_render_plugin.rco" to [dev_flash/vsh/resource/] with any fileManager

Not being the First time:

1. edit or pre/edit "gameboot.png" with your favorite Image software, and put your "gameboot.png" "512x54" in "Custom GameBoots.bat" directory

2. double click on "Custom GameBoots.bat"

3. (same as above)

4. (same as above)
