July 31, 2013 // 3:41 pm - Following up on his previous releases and XMBPC Toolbox v2, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer SvenGDK has made available XMBPC PS3 System Update v1.0.9 with the changelog detailed below.

To quote: Changelog XMBPC 1.0.9:

XMBPC System Update v1.0.9 released!

  • Preparing for new stable release
  • Changed some things in "Check for updates" to work with the new updater
  • Minor bugfixes

This is also a little "test" to try the new updater.

Update via "Check for updates" or try the new updater.

Drag and drop this file (UPDATE_v108_v109.PKG) into the updater (RIGHT-CLICK -> SAVE TARGET AS!)

You can grab the new updater from: luxdev.de/XMBPCE/ , place it into your XMBPC directory and wait until an update is available.

The new updater (XMBPC Updater.exe) allows updating outside XMBPC. Just open the application, drag&drop the new provided UPDATE.PKG file into the updater and click start.

This will allow updating faster and easier, but of course you will be also able to update via XMBPC, the new updater allows both methods.


XMBPC PS3 System Update v1.0.9 Out, a PC XMB Clone By SvenGDK

Update: XMBPCE: An XMB Emulator by SvenGDK has also been announced today. To quote:

Hey, I want to show you a new project from me called XMBPCE which I started yesterday.

What is the XMB (XrossMediaBar)?

XMB is the graphical user interface of the PS3 & PSP.

What can I do with this emulator?

With this emulator you can use the graphical user interface of the PS3/PSP on your Windows PC. You can control it with the PS3 Controller.

What has been done already?

  • XMB Boot: Done (Boots up like the PS3)
  • Graphical user interface: Halfway done (Animated background missing)
  • Controller support: Done
  • Category browsing: Only “Games”
  • Starting games: Done
  • PlayStation Button Menu: Halfway done

There are MANY features missing which will be added soon, this is only the first Alpha version …

Here are some short videos about it:

  • Video Link: 85.31.189.150/XMBPCE_4/ (New video, the game switch system isn't improved yet)
  • Video Link: 85.31.189.150/XMBPCE_3/ (Of course it will be full screen on first beta release)
  • Video Link: 85.31.189.150/XMBPCE_2/

Odds are it's just a false positive, I wouldn't worry about it myself as he's a known developer etc.
