  • Always use a new stable release

  • To add PSP/PS1/PS2 games you need to select the correct filter on the setup: (multiselect works)

Important Information:

If you want to update v1.0.9 to v1.1 via System Update feature or with an update pkg, then you need to download the updated "XMBPC Updater.exe" from here: and place it into your XMBPC directory. This file has been updated 20mins before, so users of v1.1 are also asked to replace the existing "XMBPC Updater.exe" file because of an important update.

Update PKG v1.0.9 to v1.1.0: (If you don't replace the Updater before updating then the language and ps1loader files will not be updated.)

XMBPC System Update v1.1.1 has been released!

NOTES BEFORE INSTALLING: XMBPC Updater has been updated again, this fixes installing future updates of DS, Gamecube & Wii loaders. Get it here (

OTHER INFOS: I'm really sorry for the possibility to browse only 1 pc game... I will try to fix this as soon as possible.

  • Added on XMBPC Setup the possibility to add DS (*.nds), Gamecube (*.gcm) & Wii (*.iso) games.
  • Added: "Nintendo games" folder under the "Game" category.
  • Fixed: "Check for updates", it will now always download the latest XMBPC Updater to update without problems.

XMBPC System Update v1.1.2 has been released!

  • Caution: The "Game" category is very unstable and you need to re-add your PC games! (Not Roms)

Yes, but I did not test it yet. Im on RogeroV2-Dex-3.55.

Next week I try the unofficial Rebug DEX with ProDG & Target Manager

erm, maybe some stupid idea but what about cell reset line and debug?

mathieulh himself said it works on debug and maybe with target manager/debugger to dump the memory.

on this you would need no exception to my understanding

1) Convert to DEX & update to 4.2x , so u can start all games (with DEX-game-patch)
2) Get a Hardware to dump the RAM while game is launching
--2*) If no Hardware to dump available, u need to create a "triggerable" crash & activate CORE DUMP in Debug Settings
3) Extract the decrypted EBOOT.ELF from dump
4) Resign with 3.55keys & make the pkg
5) "Update" to 3.55 DEX-CFW (i.e. RogeroV2-DEX)
6) Test it, Confirm it, Upload it, share it
