Sponsored Links
237w ago - Update: [Register or Login to view links] has now updated [Register or Login to view links]'s Windows [Register or Login to view links] utility to RCOMage v1.1.1 for Linux users.

A couple days back ZiNgA BuRgA released RCOMage v1.1.0, which allows you to dump any RCO (localized resource) file from both PS3 and PSP Firmware followed by version 1.1.1b.

Break the RCO on down and customize text strings, audio, and graphics to your liking and then recompile the modified resources and you've just created yourself a PS3 Custom Theme!

v1.1.0 Changelog:

• Minor message output changes
• Fixed bug where rcomage may have tried to convert non-GIM images through gimconv when dumping
• Fixed minor issue if Image/Sound/Text tree contained no subentries
• Removed option to select compression for PNG/JPG/TIF/GIF resources in GUI as it's mostly useless and may break the RCO if changed
• Add UMDFlag attribute to RcoFile tag
• Reduce the use of CDATA sections in the dumped text XML file
• Add basic VSMX decoder/encoder; add corresponding option when dumping/compiling in CLI and GUI, as well as vsmxdec and vsmxenc functions in the CLI
• Add experimental VSMX -> Javascript decompiler. This will most likely crash, but if you're lucky, it might go through and give half-readable output. Only use this if you're really interested; can only be accessed via the CLI using the --decompile option of vsmxdec
• Export some internal constants to .ini files
• Add support for UTF8 and UTF32 text in RCOs (found in PS3 RCOs); also fixed some potential character encoding issues
• Add support for Fontstyle entries (used in the sysconf PS3 RCO)
• Greatly improve handling PS3 RCO object structures (thanks goes to geohot for RCO samples)
• Add support for writing PS3 RCOs; also modify GimConv to add PS3 configuration option

v1.1.1b Changelog:

• Add --ini-dir option to allow specifying INI directory for the CLI
• Add version tag 0x97 as a valid PS3 tag (fixes some issues with dumping RCOs from older PS3 firmwares) [thanks to Mr Shizzy for the samples]
• Export animtable tag constants to .ini file; also fix up PS3's special MoveTo animation
• Minor modification to WAV parser - will now skip bytes if header specifies it
• Remove UTF-8 BOMs from dumped XML before the text values - seems to cause issues on some machines (and I don't think it's exactly valid anyway)
• Strip nulls from text (RCO Editor may add them)
• Replace the various "unknownInt1" name with "accelMode" - thanks to Vegetano1 for the find

so all we need to do to get a working custom xbm is to replace the rco's with our own compiled ones in the dev_flash using the exploit, right? I also did notice when you extract a PUP file you will get the vsh.tar but it's encrypted

btw did you guys know that you can connect a Pocketstation to the ps3 via the memory card slot

I discovered it when I dumped the explore_plugin_full.rco file.

What firmware are these from exactly ?

No problem - I "think" it was from 2.40 or so - a tad old, but it's what I still had lying around...

One dumped, but with hundreds of errors, the other one didn't dump at all and the program stopped working.

Indeed, had the same problem, if I recall it was with the sysconf_plugin.rco (the crash).

Groovy, that's some sweet news right there. I'm curious though, is the depth of customization as deep as it is on PSP? I made a couple custom themes for PSP, and i wouldn't mind taking a look inside a PS3 theme, and see how much i can tweak it! Great job on the Program!

i consider this another great step forward for the community! The more we can tweak everything, the better and easier its all going to get! The things i would love to do to the XMB! it could look so beautiful with full hardware support from the PS3, that it might just bring a tear to your eye. Sweet program man.
