    Download: XMBLOCK_REBOOT.v1.00.pkg / XMBLOCK+REBOOT.pkg / XMBLOCK+REBOOT.pkg (Mirror) / XMB_LOCK_STEALTH.zip (With RCO Edit) by bitsbubba / XMB_LOCK_STEALTH.zip by ermak86 / XMBlock&Reboot-101.pkg / XMBlock&Reboot.v1.01.pkg (Mirror) / BP0001-XMBLOCK00_00-0000000000000000.pkg (v1.02) / Reboot System (German).pkg via bitsbubba / XMBLOCK_v2.00.pkg (37.1 MB) / XMBLOCK-v2.00.pkg (Greek Language Removed - 37.2 MB) / XMBLOCK-v2.00.pkg (Mirror) / XMBLOCK_v2.01.pkg (41.3 MB) / XMBLOCK_v2.01.pkg (Mirror) / XMBLOCK_v2.02.pkg (47.02 MB) / XMBLOCK_v2.03.pkg (52.73 MB)

    This tool for CFW 4.70 will protect your console's settings locking the System settings, Network settings and System update.

    The tool also allows to install a System Reboot option on XMB for any CFW 4.70 Cobra.
    • Install XMB LOCK --> make your settings changes with yours choice
    • Install (XMBLOCK+REBOOT.pkg) go to settings lock and press activate
    • Now your settings is protected.

    If you want to make changes or update just select deactivate lock option and all settings have be unlocked.

    Install reboot option -->just install from pkg this option.

    From bitsbubba: I also noticed that "Control for HDMI" was not labeled as locked when active so I changed it in rco for all languages and haxxxen in my previous pkg I had added a pkg version of Reboot but only for 4.70, it should be available for 4.46 also now (linked above) if you want to test.

    From ermak86: I create for you a stealth version of xmb lock (linked above) - you can install and uninstall it from mmOS by clicking the zip files.

    Update 1.01
    • Added support for 4.46 4.50 4.55 4.60 4.66

    Install XMB LOCK --> make your settings changes with yours choice, install (XMBLOCK+REBOOT.pkg) go to settings lock and press activate, now your settings is protected.

    If you want to make changes or update just select deactivate lock option and all settings have be unlocked.

    Install reboot option -->just install from pkg this option.

    From bitsbubba: I noticed "devflashcategory_user.xml" is still being copied to dev_flash which is unnecessary. Also if you check one of the pkgs that I uploaded I made a cleaner install (Reboot) which doesn't put any files on HDD root (not the pkg install but your version).

    Update 1.02

    Bitsbubba with your reboot method i get message (The system was not turn off properly the last time it was used) after reboot. Yours method Added on v1.02.
