PS3 RCO Free Package Manager and Web Browser Plus PKG Arrive

Sponsored Links
129w ago - Shortly following his PS3Ultimate PS3 TV Application v1.10 update, PlayStation 3 homebrew developer RazorX has also released a PS3 RCO Free Package Manager and Web Browser Plus PKG file with details below.

Download: PS3 RCO Free Package Manager / PS3 Web Browser Plus PKG File

To quote: Hey guys I've created this simple rco free package manager installable zip file for you, this can easily be incorporated into your cfw with very little impact and is completely safe and for those of you who want to install a package manager that won't need you to replace any rco files, this is great if you created your own cfw and installing a standard package manager will change your XMB names or layout.

This also will allow you to install packages from:

Along with this I am releasing a Web browser which utilizes multimans browser which means you can launch the Web browser from the network category and download pkg files directly to your hdd and with this package manager install them also the package manager it's self will show up in the network category so it's out of the way.

This won't damage or replace any other package manager you have installed.

For those of you who don't know how to install this all you do is extract the zip and put the PS3~dev_blind~vsh~resource~explore~xmb.zip file on your usb stick then launch multiman, goto mmOS then browse your usb stick and double click on the file and it will ask you if you want to install it choose yes and you're done.

Hope you enjoy this please let me know what you think..


Q: What does RCO-Free mean?

A: It has exellent compatibility because it will work on just about anything also imagine you made your own cfw with altered rco files and set it up perfect just the way you like it then you install a package manager and because it replaced a rco that you had altered you hard work is gone.

Also it reduces the size to next to nothing and it makes it 100% easier to incorporate it into your own cfw if you choose to make one or already have one and since the xml files hardly change you could probably get away with installing it on any update whether you install it with the installable zip or do it manually and it has the multiman downloads folder added to it.

So if you download a pkg through multiman it will show up on the package manager and it also has the directory for the web browser app I provided you can see the full list in the spoiler I'm all about making things simple why make the same app complicated if you can make it simple also if you don't know what your doing its best not to install something that could potentially damage your PS3 with this you don't need to worry.

PS3 RCO Free Package Manager and Web Browser Plus PKG Arrive

To quote: Hi all, today I've brought you my simple TV app for those of you who are sick of having no TV section now you will have with this app I've setup for you.

  • all you have to do is replace your category_tv.xml with the one i have provided in TV Section (TV) v1.01.zip
  • if you want it in your TV category or if you prefer it in your Video category just replace your category_video.xml with the one I provided in the TV Section (VIDEO) v1.01.zip but don't use both
  • you can replace your XML file by mounting your flash with a program or through multiman then replacing it
  • then install the PKG file and your done
  • simply go to your TV or Video category on your PS3 and you now have some TV channels
  • also if your TV category is disabled this should enable it

  • Added new channels
  • Added HFS (more info below)
  • Added/updated movies
  • Removed icons from this and future updates to prevent overwriting theme
  • Added "standard theme" so icons can be restored to normal

HFS Info:

HFS aka HFS HTTP File Server will give you the ability to copy files to your PS3 and stream videos directly to your ps3 it also can be used for much more than this but this is what i use it for also with the modification. i have made you will be able to upload videos you have on your PS3 to your PC.

i have set everything up for you it should be a simple matter of loading. HFS up and adding your files to it you will also need to create a Upload folder on your pc and drag it over onto HFS and right click the folder and set it up as a upload directory so you can upload pictures and with my mod videos from your PS3 to your PC.

i've set the HFS website up as localhost if this doesnt work change localhost to your pc's ip address, for example change localhost to and everything should work perfectly to make it easier for you to change the ip address ive set it up so it reads the website address from the root of your ps3's hdd so please put the hfs.xml in the root of your ps3's hdd so basically it should be put in /dev_hdd0/ this will allow you to easily remember were it is if you need to change the ip address.

Here are the files:

The PS3Ultimate TV Video Bypass contains the dev_flash~vsh~resource~explore~xmb.zip which you install using multiman this will allow you to upload your videos from your PS3 to your PC.

v1.09 Changelog:

With 1.09 I've updated most of the app from the themes to the movie links and movies. I've also added a links section to tidy the main section up. Ive also added new content including ps3 xil for those who want to use it to add custom channels and tidy up the ps3's main XMB or if your CFW has removed them, then they should be available again. I've also changed the update to a direct link but most of my time and effort has been focused on the movies section.

I decided to release this update a little sooner than I was going to, so remember I'm working on this everyday, so keep checking for updates but remember it can be a slow process and I'm working alone. So please be patient and if you have just installed this update remember to also download and install a theme so everything is up to date.

Below are some updated PS3MFW Builder plugins for PS3 Firmware 3.73 spoofing for those interested. Keep in mind they will not allow you to play higher PlayStation 3 Firmware games, only stop your PS3 from being accidently updated.

Download: PS3 666-990 Spoof Version

To quote via psx-scene.com/forums/content/fw3-73-1586/:

I offer you my version of tlc file to add a plugin PS3MFW builder software to allow you to integrate the spoof v3.73 in your future personal development of CFW. This version is a mod that I made from the file tlc 666_9.90_version_spoofer


  • Download and unzip the archive => 666-990-spoof-version_Mod_by_ARCH.rar
  • Copy the file "tlc" in the following directory: PS3MFW / tasks /


Here is another update, courtesy of resident PS3MFW Builder user bitsbubba:

Download: PS3 Spoof_Version TLC Task (1.02-3.73) for PS3MFW Builder / PS3 Spoof_Version TLC Task (1.02-3.73) for PS3MFW Builder (Fixed) / PS3MFW-Builder.zip (August 11, 2012 GIT Build) / spoof_version_simple.rar (Rebug TCL additional tasks) / spoof_version_more.rar (v1.02-4.25)

A few more from abuser via: ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/20-Additional?p=14431#post14431

Here is a Rebug 3.55.2 aio patch for dospiedras lv1checks, reactpsn and official update pkg. this one can be used directly after a hardware downgrade just like rogero's v2 kmeaw.

Download: Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update / Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update (Updated) / Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update (Fixed)

The updated version includes: the update pkg files, the dospiedra v2 lv1 checks to flash directly after hardware downgrade
with a flasher, reActPSN patches and privacy patches. i'm still having problems with tv category patch multilingual, but it will follow.

If you patch rebug with ps3mfw directly with reactpsn patches, you will have no problems with the different modes REBUG/RETAIL or the menus DEBUG/RETAIL at all. dunno about kmeaw, but it should also apply as i assume the rsod is because of a hashcheck or sth on vsh.self


  • the dospiedra lv1 checks are totally safe, as i've already tested this on rebug after e3flasher downgrade!!!
  • playstation.net privacy patch is disabled by default, cause i had problems with some psn games
  • you can update all files from pkg, even BDEMU1 to BDEMU2. if not just leave spaces empty
  • if no firmware is selected for reactpsn, the patches won't be applied

I used the change dev flash file for bdemu, so you can delete it and update it with bdemu2 and the 1.6.pkg.

Download: Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update PKG / Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update PKG (Revised) / Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update PKG (Latest)

I have updated my REBUG-only task to the fullest now. It is now able to patch the released original pups 3.41.3 and 3.55.2 automatically, without replacing files.

This means you now have the choice to select the REBUG-Mode spoofed firmware yourself. 5.55 included and this makes future spoofer updates obsolete. you now only need the selectors from update pkg! i have included 3.41 REBUG lv1 patches and have seperated them from 3.55 lv1 check patches thx to


  • you can replace the old selectors with new ones, and even bdemu1 with bdemu2 (leave empty for no replace)
  • privacy patch fully automated, one single option to select (leaving playstation.net because of psn games)
  • lv1 check patches for 3.41 and 3.55 REBUG for flasher downgrade
  • REBUG-Mode spoof-firmware selection: select the spoofed firmware version yourself
  • i have now included Team REBUG's implementation of reActPSN patches for 3.41 and 3.55 (cleaner)
  • make from scratch your latest up to date rebug pups
  • still only tv category to rebug, i'm sorry

NOTE: use only original REBUG_3.41.3_PS3UPDAT.PUP and REBUG_3.55.2_PS3UPDAT.PUP trying it with true blue edition is on your own risk, as i cannot test it. spoofer and lv1 patches do not work.

Download: Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update PKG (01.20.2012)

So after this strange "ARCH-Release" I thought to improve my task and include now the Homebrew category option with a LP file and make usage of danyL's language pack option, so it works on all system languages. just put the Homebrew.LP file to the pkgs or any other folder and select the path in ps3mfw builder...

Updated overview:

  • you can replace the old selectors with new ones, and even bdemu1 with bdemu2 (leave empty for no replace)
  • privacy patch fully automated, one single option to select (leaving playstation.net because of psn games)
  • lv1 check patches only for 3.55 REBUG for flasher downgrade (afterall 3.41 patches are useless)
  • REBUG-Mode spoof-firmware selection: select the spoofed firmware version yourself
  • now included Team REBUG's implementation of reActPSN patches for 3.41 and 3.55 (cleaner)
  • make from scratch your latest up to date rebug pups from original releases
  • NOW added on ALL system languages the new category called "Homebrew"

Finally, a TCL to Add ReActPSN Support on DEX 3.55 Task by haxxxen is now available as well!
