March 25, 2012 // 12:28 am - Following up on the previous releases, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer ps3hen has made available XMBM+ PKG Compiler Toolkit - a PS3 Package builder and distributer homebrew application for Windows users.

Download: XMBM+ PKG Compiler Toolkit - PS3 Package Builder and Distributer

To quote: After recent efforts to "extract our work back to source" and realising how annoying it is to individually re-package of the now large collection a packages which comprises 'a release' for the XMBM+. I bring the XMBM+ Package Compiler Toolkit.

After a day of re-learning batch with my tutor google, I've finished the tool which anyone working on the XMBM+ can use to make mastering/testing much easier. The basics of what it does:

1/ Compile, rename and post to dropbox (requires access to dropbox account)
2/ Compile rename and send to a specified directory on computer
3/ Cool little other features

Anyway to save time modifying important the directories, I've taken the liberty of making them variables existing in the settings.ini. Modifying the settings.ini is necessary if you want to use this with Dropbox.

How to Use :

1/ extract the archive to 'C:\'
2/ if you are using this with dropbox or want to use different directories edit the settings.ini at 'C:\XMBMPLS\bin\'
3/ do not change the file structure inside 'C:\XMBMPLS\pkg_source\' if you do not know what you are doing
4/ run the "XMBM+ PKG Complier" short cut at 'C:\XMBMPLS\' and follow the prompts to your desire

But for actually editing the source before compiling look here:

The core package source is contained in 'C:\XMBMPLS\pkg_source\CORE_PACK\'
The theme packages' source is contained in 'C:\XMBMPLS\pkg_source\THEME_PACKS\'
The language packages' source is contained in 'C:\XMBMPLS\pkg_source\LANGUAGE_PACKS\'

its because they have been signed with new keys same as playstation home, if you ask e3 they might decrypt them and sign them for 3.55

I recently updated to the above firmware and update to gain access to PSN.

Whilst on there I managed to download apps for Lovefilm and Netflix; however when I start them I get error 80010017.

This is a Bluray error but the drive is working and tested (recently remarried)

Has anyone got any ideas/ way to fix?

All the best

you have to download the .pkg file, then you need to download a very small .rar file containing a .txt file which is a link of the pkg file, use that link to download the actual file and put it on your flashdrive, once you put it on flashdrive, just install under Package Manager >> Install Package Files >> Standard Package Location.

anyone know how to get Episodes from Liberty City USA version working on Rebug 3.55.2 from external. It installs the data to play but then it stays on the loading screen, and there are no update prompts at all for it. Thanks!
