If it freezes when you watching a movie, you could try to replace showtime.self. From a different working showtime, find the showtime.self.

Once you got that, go to dev_hdd0/game/bles80608/USRDIR and copy it over the non-working one. Or you could update to habib 4.66.

Cool! I hope my PS3 ever completely replace XBMC. 1080p, Dolby+DTS must have!
