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!!

Assuming that I make backups of any XML files i want to edit, is there any risk of bricking or the system becoming inaccessible?

Problem with that idea is that no way to mod any links on 3.56. I have used the folding at home link to redirect to a Home pkg a FTP server as it doesn't require user to be signed into PSN, it works well and i have downloaded the home pkg from FTP using their folding at home segment with just link modded, it installs and boots too. then fails.

But i'm sure 3.55 homebrew would download using this method on 3.55 , fixed segments could be added for plenty of homebrew quite easily similar to home and folding at home, so if app doesn't exist it will automatically look for the pkg and then install it.

I suppose if links were modded in the files from the pup first, you would only get one chance though as no way to downgrade back or repeat the you might end up with a brick if the ps3 checks any files.

The hard part is getting that on the ps3 with 3.56fw. But there is nothing wrong with trying to change setting here on a 3.55 ps3 , so the ps3 can look for updates were you wish. within the category_network.xml

could this be used to install signed homebrew on 3.56 i wonder?

it seems sony uses this method to download and install packages, example:

if we changed the links to one of our own servers with homebrew packages, if we resign the apps with 3.56 keys we could install them on 3.56 yeah?

Strange, I know I never went online to PSN to get the kids one working, all I did was setup a quick user and activated, thats all I can remember. but it worked after a reset. Your not blocking any ports that you forgot about are you in your router? Sorry but I have forgot in the past.

Any chance of incorporating Hulu/Netflix support, perhaps?
