In related news, Sony PS3 hacker DarkhackerPS3 has made available a preview video (below) via PSHomebrew on YouTube of his own PS3 Online Homebrew Browser dubbed Cydia PS3 alongside a PSHomebrew v0.1 (Pre-Release) build. Essentially it is a WIP PS3 homebrew application that will allow users to sign into a server to upload and download the latest PlayStation 3 homebrew releases.

He has also added the Rebug Category to PSHomebrew as shown in the video below.

Also below, TizzyT455 has uploaded a WIP video of his PS3 XMB Brewery, in which he states: "An EXTREMELY early stage in a program I am working on that will make life a little bit easier for people on the PS3 scene.

When you want to find something you usually have to go online and as the old saying goes "Google is your friend", well what if you don't want friends what if you want a for say genie to come out and just gives you what you want, my program might be that genie. It will have FTP-Like transferring features, a free app store, and other features but I'm not going to say since I don't know If I'm capable of implementing them.

For now though the program runs really smooth even on my little brothers old Athlon x64 computer that's at 2.5Ghz."

Get the skinny version, if you don't like the other features. Personally, I think most are great.

version 4.13 of MultiMan was the last good version for me. Any version past 4.14 is crap. I only use the 8x4 layout and its now changed for the worst. In 4.13 it loaded fast, it was smooth and no problems at all. In 4.14 it now takes 3x longer to load a page then every other page also takes 3x longer as it loads the icons everytime where 4.13 loads all at startup.

4.14 also brought this menu to the 8x4 layout so when you press O hoping it asks to quit it now brings up a menu. When you finally exit and load up MM again it goes to that menu not the games list. It feels bloated now, its slower, more button presses to exit without loading a game, and just sluggish all round.

DeanK doesn't care as I spoke to him about it and said he's not going to fix it, he's going to leave it buggy. If you dont believe me go try it out for yourself. v4.13 and v4.14. both on the 8x4 screen layout. You will see its now slower, takes longer and just feels bloated.

I'm staying on 4.13MM or going to iris when it works on 4.21REX.

What happened to multiman for you to call it bloatware?

I've been hearing so many good things about it

As MultiMan is becoming bloatware I'll give this a go.

Just tried it on 4.21REX and it says "Unsupported firmware" and quits.

seriously? there are people who still use this, come on, any other manages besides multiman is pointless to use, multiman has more that anyone would need so having this is just having another icon for decoration on XMB
