what are the cfws and versions directly bundled with ps2 emulation? i have a slim that came on 3.15 ofw on 4.21 ofw and I want to know it for when I am going to jailbreak. I am going to jailbreak with recovery mode and a original ps3 controller (which I am collecting money until now on my poverty, but ebay helps)

I am asking such stupid question because there is network bandwidth plan and disk storage... you know.

A better contextual translation:

- Modified XMB Categories:
Photos | HD Video | Homebrew | Games | Install
- Network Settings /Game Data Utility Info
- Package Installer is under the Install Category with 7 separate install folders:
PS3 Hard Disk (internal) | Install Homebrew (Tools) | Install XMB BOOT PKG | Install PSN Content |
Install PS1 PSN Content | Install PKG Patches/Updates | Install PKG Content
- Install Category is modified to support the IcE-rX Media Manager (XMBM+)
- "app/home/PS3_GAME/" is renamed to "Launch Application (Emulation)"
- Homebrew Category is where installed App/Tools will be shown
- Package Installer was translated to German

- REBUG Slim Theme
- Animated REBUG Boot Logo
- ULTIMATE Boot Sound
Take it or leave it. I personally find "German" an interesting language. So I'd thought I'd try to give a contextual translation, so it'll make more sense than Google translate, especially since some of it didn't translate at all .

Word of warning to those who want to use the mod, the XMBM+ version that the IcE-RX Media Manager is based on, is old (v0.11-0.20), and it's mostly in German. I'm not going to try to translate the install instructions, they are kind of dodgy. Telling people to mount dev_blind (flash write access) and then to manually edit it, isn't particularly "noob-proof".

loool your not dumb, most of us would prefer to have them signed for us, its nothing to do with being dumb. its called being cautious. the tools are there to do it, and its pretty easy. but then you also have to become the tester on your own beloved ps3, and we dont know how the homebrew works or what files its messing with.

it just a lot safer and easier to wait until someone else does the resigning and a lot of others test it before we put it near our ps3s.

were not dumb, were just chickens lol

matty you will need to resign it for use on 4.25 mate. all homebrew has to be resigned if you have updated cfw. you can try doing it yourself with all these tools around (just look at last few pages of ps4news.com mainpage) or if your dumb like me you may find it pre resigned for your newer cfw on here also.
