This is nice, but its not quite right. Is it possible to re-integrate the proper gameboot from pre 3.00, so we get proper fade in + audio for the gameboot? This is a step in the right direction though.
PluginX: Multifunctional PS3 XMB Mods Application is Released
Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developers exofreak and Nathan_r32_69 (aka Evilnat) have made available PluginX which is a multifunctional PS3 XMB Mods application with details below.
To quote: This new app named PluginX allows you to install various plugins, gameboots and XMB mods into your PS3, with the help of a simple ui app.

Stealth XMB: Removes (*Install Package Files and app_home) option to make the PS3 look like an OFW system. They can be applied back with the same app.
Coldboot installer: This will install any coldboot present in the base of your USB drive.
This app simultaneously installs all the afore mentioned plugins, in a simple fashion. So you can change your gameboot, add Internet TV, and apply the Facebook all without ever rebooting the PS3!
Dont load the in game XMB while running the app or you will have to hard reset. You can quit via the start button.
While in the app, every option requires a dual button press to apply, for safety reasons.
The Game Data is disguised as the data of Prototype 2, to minutely reduce ban risk for online users.
The app was compiled and packaged by the popular developer Nathan_r32_69. He made this app wit an amazing and simple interface for everyone to understand. Thank Nathan, cause he is awesome!
The plugins were created by me (Ahmed Khail aka exofreak) and released individually on the network. I also formated the app and recompiled it for a few options.
Video: Remove Singstar Icon Permanently from PS3 UK Consoles

Video: MultiMAN Integrated PS3 XMB Mod By Exofreak is Released
Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 developer exofreak is back with a multiMAN Integrated XMB which allows users to download, install and launch multiMAN and its tools from the PlayStation 3 XMB menu.
The is my first officially released mm theme. Although i have been making themes for a while, this is the first one i am releasing.
Beyond Two Souls is a really well crafted game. I believe it stands among many other great games released this year. This theme is in honour of the brilliant masterpiece that is Beyond. Enjoy.
I changed all the backgrounds, Used official icons instead of default ones, the theme audio is the main theme of beyond two souls. Its in multimans proprietary .thm format so its very easy to install and remove later instead of .pkg format which is permanent. I didn't do anything with the xmb icon because i dident feel it necessary. The backgrounds are full 1080p.
Double click the file in mmOS.
Launch Game Backups Directly from XMB! (No Manager/Last Game Required) by Exofreak
Update: You can now do everthing that i initially attempted without going through all the hassle
Then install this plugin into prx loader (deanbg.com/webftp_server.sprx)
Thats it. Everything will be automatically be done for you. Disregard the rest below, its for dev's
I made some XML Mods for the people willing to test them out. Basically I replaced the IP with a local proxy (thanks to deank). Now Games can be mounted onto the XMB directly from the PS3 and on any PS3
I have made xml for only 4 games yet. The best part is that it isn't necessary for you to have all 4 xml enabled as i made each separate so if you only need gta5 you can remove the rest. First thing you need to do is rename your game backup folders
rename your game backups to:
The Last Of Us
All the above games must be on the internal hdd and in the GAMES folder (sorry GAMEZ is not supported yet)
Assassins Creed III MUST BE ON USB001
Sorry if its inconvenient but hey at least it works. Second use multiMAN to install what ever necessary game xml you need so if you need gta5 open the gta 5 folder from the downloaded link and double x the zip file. Then open the main install folder in the rar and double x both of the zip files. That's pretty much it.
You will need the latest version of prx loader and you must have this (deanbg.com/webftp_server.sprx) new prx (v1.05) by my buddy deank installed.
With the help of the prxloader and the webbrowser plugin, you can now mount games directly from any web browser.
So if you modify the ps3 web browser to have shortcuts of the web browser, and each shortcut redirects you to the mount location of any selected game.
Don't get it? than check out this video demo i made above.
Very fast compared to other methods (It takes only 3 seconds as opposed to 32 sec with multiman and 19 sec with lastGAME
Efficient requires almost 0 mb and has very basic xml structure
No ban risk, there is zero ban risk. You can mount games with psn logged in with ease.
Looks more natural on the xmb
JUST THE WEB BROWSER! each time you select a game it uses only the default browser
Requires basic xml knowledge. The end user to make his own xml structure with his own ip and folder structure.
Requires multiman to be installed
The biggest problem is than since everyone has a diffrent unique ip, there is no way i can make a defult one that works with everyones ps3
