February 13, 2011 // 8:45 pm - I bring you the second version of PS3 Channels Creator 2.0 homebrew application today.

PCC is a windows program used to create lists of channels for our PS3. These channels are like shortcuts to Web sites, you do not need to be web video.

Download: PS3 Channels Creator 2.0


  • Now you can choose the icons you want (even add icons added)
  • Works in all regions
  • You can choose the name of the folder containing the xil.xml (Not all consoles have the same name)
  • Different languages (English, Spanish and Catalonian)
  • You can choose the order of channels
  • All times are displayed in the channel list

As the big news about the first version is that you can change the icons of presentation. The icons have to take some measures and be 320x176 PNG. You can also use icons from other icons packs. Icons do not need to be hosted on external servers are stored on your PS3.

The first menu you can choose the name of the folder that contains the XIL.XML. To find out you only have to look (for ftp or file manager) the name of the folder that is located in "/ dev_hdd0/tmp/explore/xil/tv/ctmp /". With this program you ride perfect for all folders that you just have to upload the folder xil.

Sorry for my bad english!!

If I remove a category file altogether, say PSN, will it remove it from the XMB or just error?

Another good solution is notepad2 , same idea, it detects the code type and will show any broken tags or errors in xml code.. also free.

actually no I think there's a problem with those kernel modules no matter how many times I tried dropping them they gave a corrupted index error and failed to load. so you get stuck with no networking and usb access so you can't control it. But it could just be a step missed in the guides, I don't have a lot of experience with gentoo or tftpboot.

I got the debian one installed on an external and sd card though without the network. I have a fat 256MB nand one with a card reader so I had to use the 1.3 installer which crashed about 5 times on "scanning lv1" before eventually finishing.. but it does work.

Ya I do remember it, but can't remember why I was using it, I don't know why i associated it with a windows notepad, other than in the name, but I will give it a try, thanks.

Off topic Barry, just a quick one, did you get Linux running in the end, over the network? I have not had chance to look if anyone has it working, but knew you was trying it out, so I thought I'd ask you.
