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!!

notepad++ is a good shout actually it's nothing to do with the notepad windows comes with. you should give it a try, it supports multiple languages and it'll highlight syntax errors and things llike that. oh and free too..

I have been trying Altova XMLSpy, because in the back of my mind notepad didn't save out correctly, but I didn't know about the notepad++ version, I've not used it much, but thanks for the heads up.

Note to other readers, use only an editor that saves out the XML correctly, something like what Severusx mentioned "Notepad++" or you can try out something like Altova XMLSpy 30 day trial.

I'd use notepad++. It can show you broken tags and stuff when you set the language you are using (i.e. XML).

What 1nevermind said about not breaking the tags.. very importent.

Of a matter of interest what are you using to edit?

so, few codes I've found:


So, if you're from HU, es won't work for you, you must change to hu
leave everything else untouched, and don't break the tags, this is way too touchy.

Gotcha, I'll probably pop another small drive in it for testing and then go back to the main when i get it all ironed out.

I don't think so, but if you mess up and it dose not start, its only the drive thats mest up, and you may have to reformat your drive again, but there no chance of bricking because your not changing the flash/Bios settings.

It's not just 63431223453538546, thats (I think) a unique hash. In my case, it ended with 666. Anyway, just find the folder, which contains xil.xml. In it, find tag SOMETHING and change it to your country.

For example, if you're from Spain, and you see kr, it won't work for you and you have to change. The best way is to see which videos you have in your XMB, find it in XMB, and then change all the SOMETHING to, lets say, es

Then you'll see all channels.
