Why you try to insert this some where?
Do you know what you doing?
I should type that code in the CMD of windows or not?
so is the ps3 booting the PS3 games from the XMB directly like a PSN game does..?
or is the SmallLoader or XMBoot app required to be loaded 1st or something before you can launch you PS3 game from the XMB..?

Ok updated my PKG Tool and now Jurai2s XMBoot is included.
Dont forget to edit the main.cpp to add the path to your game on internal or external hdd.
How to use: Just run the tool and press 10 for Jurai2s XMBoot
Press 1 to copy game files to the working dir
2 for editing the sfo file and set the game to HDD Boot game and edit the Title ID to a unique one.
After that press 3 for generating the package.conf (i have changed it for my app to xmbootpkg.conf)
Press 4 for editing the main.cpp and set the path to your game on internal or external hdd and set if you want to quick boot it and if you want to use the hermes fix (for next update i will try to do that without opening the main.cpp)
At last 5 to generate the Custom Game Package
Now you have a instalable pkg file wich will be displayed in your ps3´s game category like demos or arcade games.
NOTE: This doesnt generate FULL game pkg´s !! They only have the banner, icon and sound files from your game.The eboot.bin is a kind of Forwarder and contains a small bootloader that knows where your game on the hdd will be stored and boot it normal or quick and with or without the new Hermes fix.
Al credits for XMBoot goes to Jurai2.
Oh btw this tool is awesome! Direct booting into demon's souls with one button
This is great - just need one point clarifying...
So, I create a shortcut package using my original game's .SFO, titleID, Name etc - does this mean that I i then run the shortcut and subsiquently the game that the PS3 thinks that THIS GameID is running (as opposed to the BM where it thinks eg LAUN12345 "Backup Manager" is running)
i.e. Does this mean that if we were able to get PSN access back again that the PSN servers would think we're running the legitimate game as opposed to the backup manager?
Not really that helpful at the moment since you must be on a higher firmware to access PSN - but can't help thinking that EVENTUALLY that's going to get hacked again too! lol
This is pretty cool, now we might see some PS3 games released with a pre-packaged .pkg that will install the shortcut for the game.
Zouzz have released an auto pkg creator for SmallLoader (gueux-forum.net/index.php?showtopic=244459)
You need to install MSYS environnement and add make_package_npdrm.exe. You can change icon0.png by one of your choice.
In a folder ,copy the PS3_GAME from your game, SmallLoader Configuratatator.exe and make_package_npdrm.exe. And just click "Compiler en pkg " and it's finish. You can now copy this pkg on your ps3 via usb or ftp, and install it . You will see the game icon like when you install a demo.pkg on your xmb, click it, it's your game
