    Video: PS3 Homebrew Flash via Vidzone Music Application

    Boring, no really interesting news around so I'll try to keep you interested with this little discovery. Tested and working on a retail PS3 machine.

    Not only the lame PS3 Internet browser is able to play flash files, the music application Vidzone is also.

    Here is a little example:

    The startup Vidzone logo and the main menu layout are simple .swf flash files. Write your own flash file format 5 and simply replace those two files to run it standalone by starting Vidzone:

    First replace: /dev_hdd0/game/NPEA00135/USRDIR/VidzoneChannel.swf

    Second replace: /dev_hdd0/game/NPEA00135/USRDIR/HDForms.swf

    I won't explain how to replace files on HDD again, you should know that by now. I'm still experimenting so find out what is possible yourself in the first time.

    Chalk up one more thing that can be added to your list of running homebrew on the PS3, eh? Nice SKFU!

    Very good find, any progress is better than no progress.

    Lightbulb Vidzone for all regions?

    Maybe I just don't understand well but if the startup logo and menu is flash based, maybe VidZone could be made accessible for all regions?
    On the other hand if the flash file calls a ps3 app or a distant server the region check is not done locally so this would not be an option...

    Would be very, very stupid... but just a thought!
