It has been a long time since I've released an update of this homebrew. Well I re-written it for the ... don't know, I have rewritten this app so many times that I lost the count, but I want to share with you this simple preview.

I want to say that the icons are temporary. This homebrew is still under development.. (oh, I was forgetting.. this will be version 1.0)

  • Fixed HDD Size bug for all FW
  • Fixed abort bug
  • Fixed chaching bug (now it loads immediately)
  • Fixed download bug
  • Fixed donwload limit bug
  • Fixed server serverside bugs
  • Fixed syscalls bugs (now all the fw will reboot)
  • Fixed exit bug
  • Fixed performance bug

  • Fixed menu overflow bug
  • Fixed freeing memory bug
  • Code cleaned
  • Added performace patches
  • Changed loading code to do not overload the server
  • Added Lang support (now you can translate this)

For those that wants to translate this, use only utf-8 chars. you just need to translate these 2 files: /dev_hdd0/game/PSCHANNEL/Categories.txt /dev_hdd0/game/PSCHANNEL/Lang.txt the firs one contains the category names, the second one contains all the strings that needs to be translated.

Have any of the "homebrew store" projects advanced enough for people to use? I know this must be around the 3rd homebrew store project I've seen but none of them ever got to the point where they were useful.

I really hope someone will step up so we can declare a clear/standard app we can all use as a homebrew store. Do keep us updated on this, PS3 News!

That's my understanding exactly... with CFW as long as you steer clear of PSN you should be fine to do normal Internet-related things since Sony primarily monitors what is being done on their own network.
