To quote: I have made a little XMB mod for Rebug 3.55.2 that I call XMB File Manager (XMBFM). It is a modded version of Rebug's package manager that allows the entire ps3 filesystem to be browsed and also any files deleted.

I'm hoping to add things like copy function etc but would like to get feedback and help if anyones game. This wont work on standard CFW for now but i will hopefully release a standard version soon if anyone thinks I should bother.

This is a beta version for anyone who might be interested in helping me test it or improve on it.

It requires you to switch 2 files from dev_flash. heres a quick tut:

  • I use multiman by selecting the mount dev_flash to dev_blind option.
  • then copy over the 2 files to thier locations
  • category_game.xml goes in dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/
  • explore_plugin_full.rco goes in dev_blind/vsh/resource/

This is perfectly safe and I have even tested deleting most of dev_flash before and its easy reinstall FW through recovery menu so dont worry, just make sure you are on Rebug 3.55.2, It migtht cause a error on normal 3.55CFW

Have fun and let me know if you have an ideas on how I could expand it by adding things like copy function etc. Im not the best at this so any help is much appreciated?

Big Thanks to Cyberskunk and Evilsperm (Team Rebug) for the package manager which this is based on.

PS3 XMB File Manager Beta v0.06 for Rebug 3.55.2 CFW Changelog:

  • Added a new Vita utility category WIP
  • Changed some things around
  • New Titles and explanations
  • More Vita msgs from 4.00 added to explore_plugin_full
  • One release that shows in both retail and debug XMB's now (3 files to copy)
  • After installing this version you will notice your Remote Play description is updated to look like the latest version available too , cosmetic but looks nice.

PS3 XMB File Manager Beta v0.06c for Rebug 3.55.2 CFW Changelog:

  • This update will only show up in the retail menu.
  • Have now added a "Information" link above all the others inside the XMBFM, it opens the browser and links to the release thread!
  • Also added a built in XMBFM updater section that is based on the F@H download section from network xmls

PS3 XMB File Manager Beta v0.06c for Rebug 3.55.2 CFW (Latest) Changelog:

  • Easier for people to install.
  • Just swap the 3 files contained in LATEST.PS3.XMBFM.zip and that's it.

PS3 XMB File Manager Beta v0.08 for 3.55 / 3.41 CFW Changelog (via ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/2431-UPDATED?p=28681#post28681):

  • OK fixed view in all languages & ingame XMB, also injected it into the latest REBUG Package Manager installer (for easier install) which makes it compatible to 3.41/3.55 (also with or without REBUG red PSN icon) so this is v0.8 --> XMBFM v0.8 (3.41/3.55)

PS3 XMB File Manager Beta v0.08a for 3.55 / 3.41 CFW Changelog (via ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/2431-UPDATED?p=28709#post28709):

  • XMBFM v0.8a (3.41/3.55) with new icons by PS3hen

PS3 XMB File Manager Beta v0.08b for 3.55 / 3.41 CFW Changelog (via ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/2431-UPDATED?p=28742#post28742):

I have made a change to the 2 xml files based on last bitsbubba package xmls.

1. Organized and comment xmls for better understanding
2. Edited category_game_tool2.xml to automatcally fetch the data from category_game.xml as i suggested to devil. With this we only have to edit category_game.xml!

PS3 XMB File Manager Beta v0.08b (PS3 XMBFM v0.08b Mod NoWIP-YTXL.xml) for 3.55 / 3.41 CFW (via psx-scene.com/forums/f6/article-100732/index2.html#post951313)

I have modified the DeViL303/andreus xml v0.08b:

1- I changed the "Information" link to YouTube XL - I find it more useful than a link to a forum
2- I remarked/removed the 2 useless WIP icons to unclutter it a bit: the "PS Vita System Application Utility" icon is a duplicate of PS3 Game Data Manager, the "Life with Playstation" is just a link to Rogero.

Credits to DeViL303, ps3hen, andreus, bitsbubba, and others that I forget to mention...

PS3 XMB File Manager Beta v0.09 for 3.55 / 3.41 CFW Changelog (via ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/2431-UPDATED?p=29020#post29020):

  • Included Andreus's improved custom Filesystem browser with icons and better info. Its way better.
  • Removed entry for original filemanger but left the code in so people can compare if they want, Andreus's is over 100 times more code and very flexible and future proof
  • Added some more icons and made some titles more user friendly in andreus's FM, removed all usb devices except 000, 001, and 006, feedback ? do we need the others, i suppose for old 4 port phats maybe?
  • Changed FM code so dev_blind only shows in debug mode/xmb for safety so people dont delete thier dev_flash (added a warning too).
  • Changed icons for vita manger (still WIP), changed "info" title to "PS3Crunch Release Thread" , updated it to newer link.
  • Moved in gamedata , savedata and savedata minis/psp from main XMB to XMBM (havnt done mc utility yet as was told there might be a bug with that so more testing required)
  • Some more changes to the updater link, stil WIP, not workin, server error now, getting worse, must revert back to brewology link, at least it downloaded with that one.

I've run into some trouble after installing the pkg. It asks for a system software update, so I'm checking about other spoofers and stuff. Will report back in 10 mins.

It seems that this only works with fckpsn as there is a problem with the pkg. Man this thread is quiet. I would have expected more activity than just little old me.

Following up on his previous spoofer, today French PlayStation 3 scene developer SonGoku84 (aka SGK) has released what he calls SGK Enable / Disable Spoof for PS3 Firmware 4.25 to access PSN again with Custom Firmware (CFW).

Currently it's getting mixed reports whether it works properly or not (some say FckPSN is still required), but for those who wish to give it a try it's below with a rough translation (via ps-addict.fr/forum/sgk-enable-disable-spoof-t7132.html#p77180), as follows:

Download: SGK Enable / Disable Spoof for PS3 Firmware 4.25 on PSN with CFW / SGK Enable / Disable Spoof for PS3 Firmware 4.25 on PSN with CFW (Mirror) / SGK-CFW-SPOOF-4.25.pkg / SGK-CFW-SPOOF-4.25.pkg (Mirror) / SGK-CFW-SPOOF-4.25.pkg (Mirror #2)

Notes:

  • Make sure that you don't have any other spoofs installed if you do then uninstall it.
  • Download SGK-ENABLE DISABLE SPOOF 4.25.pkg and install it from "Install Packages".

For CFW Cobra

1: Uninstall other spoofs via Multiman
2: Return to XMB
3: To enable start SGK ENABLE/DISABLE PSN.pkg. It will ask you 2x press YES to activate 2 questions.
4: To disable start a new SGK ENABLE/DISABLE SPOOF Unable 4.25.pkg and it will ask to disable, press YES.
5: Enjoy the PSN

TrueBlue CFW

1: Downgrade your dongle in 2.5
2: Return to XMB
3: Start SGK-ENABLE DISABLE PSN.pkg. It will ask you 2x press YES to activate 2 questions.
4: To disable start a new SGK ENABLE/DISABLE SPOOF Unable 4.25.pkg and it will ask to disable, press YES.
5: Enjoy the PSN

All 3.55 CFW/Standard?

1: Uninstall other spoofs via Multiman (Rebug spoof style 2.2 4.11)
2: Return to XMB
3: Start SGK-ENABLE DISABLE SPOOF 4.25.pkg. It will ask you 2x press YES to activate 2 questions.
4: To disable run SGK-ENABLE DISABLE SPOOF 4.25.pkg again and it will ask to disable, press YES.

can anyone else confirm that this has now stopped working? if you are still signed in you will no longer be able to connect on 3.55 once you have signed out!

If it is of any help to anyone then I managed to make this work.

I downloaded the app from PSN which is version 1.03. When you first run it it requires an update to version 1.04 to continue; I believe there was a similar issue with Netflix.

When you upgrade to 1.04 then you get error 80010017. So I downloaded the original file at version 1.03 and edited the PARAM.SFO file to read version 1.04 using PS3 FTP Client v2.8 and now it signs in fine.

Thought as much, so there is no way to run Lovefilm on any CFW, even if it is spoofed to 4.11?

Meaning dual boot would be the only solution to keep CFW usability?

it wont work on OFW 3.55, you need to be on 4.11

So the only way to use Lovefilm or Netflix is to be on OFW?
