January 16, 2012 // 12:01 pm - Following up on my previous release, today on Tortuga-Cove I have released my Solar v3.0 PS3 Homebrew 3D Screensaver update followed by version 3.1 below.

Download: Solar v3.0 PS3 Homebrew 3D Screensaver / Solar v3.1 PS3 Homebrew 3D Screensaver

Now Solar v3.0, which brings many new MP3 player features and fixes, including an UI and the option to use your own background music, and much more.

To quote: Hi guys, here's another update to Solar. Lots of things added, and more to come. Hope you enjoy it, and if you have any questions or suggestions feel free to ask in the Forums.

"And please, lets keep the scene going; bickering just hurts it, and takes the fun away." caw!

Solar v3.0 Changelog:

  • Background music is now customizable "replace /dev_hdd0/game/CNDR00001/USRDIR/theme/bgm.mp3" with your own music
  • Alphabetized mp3 directory.
  • Added UI for mp3 player.
  • Fixed music counters, now shows in seconds: "00:01" format and Total Playtime format: "4.5 minutes".
  • Removed mp3 path from displayed name, looks cleaner.
  • Fixed Volume controls, now up and down is seamless.
  • Added current player status messages: playing, paused, error... etc.
  • Added keynotes.
  • Increased mp3 load times and stability.
  • Improved fast forward and reverse functions.
  • Increased 3D display frame-rates while playing music, needs some work in BGM mode.
  • Lots of code cleanup, and other things I can't remember.

BTW, guys, you must have MP3s in the ext drive's "MUSIC" directory, or Solar will seem to hang when you press down..."it will read hot-plugged drives."

Today Italian PlayStation 3 scene site BiteYourConsole has shared a guide on how to install multiMAN PS3 Themes via USB from a PKG file below.

To quote, roughly translated: Here is the program that allows us to download the theme directly in a PKG file and you can install through a pendrive.

Download: pack multiman.rar

The program was inspired by earlier work done on Bite that we allowed them to create the PKG file, the program was modified to allow an upgrade file that goes to save the theme within multiMAN.


  • Drag the file.THM in the themes folder.
  • Click on theme.bat and wait the end of the process.
  • Copy the MM4PS3-BLES80608_00-MULTIMANAGER0440.pkg file on a usb stick and install on the PS3.

The program can also be used for the themes of the hcode123 mod and opium2k, but only about MultiMAN.

Finally, multiMAN Theme Control (32 and 64 bits) is an executable multiOptions to facilitate packaging themes for multiMAN.

Download: multiMAN Theme Control (32 bits) (1 MB) / multiMAN Theme Control (64 bits) (1 MB)


  • Create IQR theme - From folder theme, will reduce 10% Quality on some images and create other theme folder IQR (After if you want, THM and PKG)
  • Create THM theme - It will create .thm from folder theme (After if you want, PKG)
  • Create PKG theme - It will create .pkg from folder theme
  • Create PKG multiThemes - It will create one .pkg from with all THMs in executable directory

This executable uses:

  • mmTM_GUI.exe from aldostools
  • make_package_npdrm.exe from Sony
  • PhotoResize.exe from Vlastimil Miler
  • msvbvm50.dll Visual Basic Virtual Machine
  • and batch code written by brunolee
