XMB Manager Plus v0.10
XMB Manager Plus (XMBM+) is a new XMB category based off of REBUG’s Package Manager, which is a modded version of the official (debug/Jailbreak)
"Install Package Files" XMB option.
This will replace the "Install Package Files" option or for REBUG CFW "Package Manager".
XMB Manager Plus allows the entire PS3 filesystem to be browsed and/or deleted (all file types supported), We have added functions to REBUG's "Package Manager" and renamed it to Package Manager Plus, it consists of all previous features plus it now includes new "Homebrew Downloader" category that has options to download a selection of popular PS3 homebrew packages.
We have also added a new "Game Data Manager" that contains all games data type tools, like saves, backups, etc. There are plenty more options also available in this new update, see the changelog below.

PS3 XMB Manager Plus (XMBM+) v0.11 Beta 2 Changelog:
In this beta version the main change is a new Development main item (will not be used in release version)
What this does is create a Folder that has some items:
1. My xcb tests: For easy making your tests without changing the rest of the strcture (SOURCES/XXXX/DEVELOPMENT/my_xcb_tests.xml). I included 9 tests just for example.
2. XMB Database (HDD): Display all objects and it's fields in HDD XMB databse to check if they are used or not (SOURCES/XXXX/DEVELOPMENT/xmb_db_hdd.xml and SOURCES/XXXX/DEVELOPMENT/xmb_db_hdd_rest.xml)
3. XMB Database (SYSTEM): Display all objects and it's fields in SYSTEM XMB databse to check if they are used or not (SOURCES/XXXX/DEVELOPMENT/xmb_db_system.xml and SOURCES/XXXX/DEVELOPMENT/xmb_db_system_rest.xml)
Note 1: due to memory issues you can only have the complete HDD or SYSTEM XMB database displayed at a time. You can easy swap them in SOURCES/XXXX/DEVELOPMENT/development_main.xml
Note 2: HDD table and SYSTEM table display different results since one queries hdd items and other removable and optical drives items (see http://www.ps3devwiki.com/wiki/XMB_database#Tables
The "Development" folder works on HDD or USB's without further changes. I allready made the path adaptations.
Changelog from Beta 1:
- Added 2 new CloneD realistic icons
- [game_main.xml] Corrected icon in usb1
- [game_main.xml] Corrected usb6 references
- [game_main.xml] adaptations for new structure for "Development" folder
- [SOURCES/XXXX/FEATURES/Game_Data_Manager.xml] new structure for managing and deleting trophies (can view an delete up to 5 users now)
- [SOURCES/XXXX/DEVELOPMENT/*] new xmls for more easy testing XMB functions
Some regards for the "Development" folder:
- You will notice that many of the object fields will return a "There is no data" message. This means that none of the records in that object has that field populated, or, all have a null value. In summary, it means you can't use that object field for nothing!
- If all the fields in an object have a "There is no data" message it means that that object as no records. In summary, it means you can't use that object for nothing!
- If any object field retuned something (games, a moving circular arrows, etc) it means that object field has some value, you them can tests different layout/context options with the subclass parameter, or sort with the sort parameter or restrinct the returned value applying more conditions on it using other operators
Good luck with the testing!
Changes from RC2:
- now is in Spanish and Polish
- the game_settings.xml was riddled errors, so I rewrote it and everything attached to it (including the themeinfo.xml in the theme packs)
After comparing the xml structure between the game_settings.xml and the others, I realized the steps I took to condense the game_settings.xml was only going to end in an unrecognizable mess, which was brought to my attention to me by our great graphics designer and tester CloneD. So now every thing should
Changes from RC3:
- fixed two bad links in the game_settings.xml (thanks XiorgON)
- reverted back to using 'info' instead of 'str_noitem' in game_settings.xml and themeinfo.xml
- uses XiorgON's alternate translation of game_settings.xml
As a goodie I created an apppack for switching Coldboots . It as 3 (OFW; Rebug and Rogero) but you can add the ones you want with an GD update (just see the package structure to understand how).
Download: Coldboot AppPack
Just install the pkg (if you have the XMBM+ installer already installed) and run the XMBM+ installer, 3 new options will be there.
