April 15, 2013 // 2:10 am - Following up on his previous updates, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer SvenGDK has released XMBPC v0.8 RC followed by v0.8.1 and v0.8.2 which is a PC XMB clone with the changelog below.

Download: XMBPC v0.8 RC PS3 / PS3 Controller Drivers (x64 & x32)

To quote: What is XMBPC?

XMBPC is a free tool to emulate/simulate the PS3 XMB User Interface on your PC. This allows a user to launch many forms of media from the simulated XMB on the PC. This will not emulate PS3 Games / Homebrew this is just a XMB clone.

Changelog for v0.8 RC:

Hi everyone, a new version of XMBPC is available! Changelogs from v0.7.2 BETA to v0.8 RC

  • Setup redesigned (Replaced XMBPCE to XMBPC ; Autofills the username ; Removed useless passwordbox ; Added PS2 ISO selector)
  • PS2 Emulator Integration "PS2Loader"
  • Recognizes PS2 Game Discs
  • Start PS2 Game Discs directly from XMBPC
  • Start PS2 ISOs directly from XMBPC
  • New subcategory under "Games" -> "PS2 Games" folder
  • PS Button Menu fixed (Now opens and closes correctly with autofocus on home)

Other notes:

  • You can also update via System Update on XMBPC v0.7.1+
  • To use the PS2 Emulator you need to configure it first (CDVD -> cdvdGigaherz !) and add a BIOS file (I cannot provide one...).
  • DON'T forget to install the driver first to get no errors

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
