Today we have a teaser video courtesy of Xenogears via Mhu2d.net (linked above) of a new PlayStation 3 homebrew application called Mhu Free Store for PS3, which is currently in private Beta but will be released to the public when it is ready.
Unlike PSXStore, Mhu Free Store runs on the PS3 without requiring a PC browser.
To quote, roughly translated: "It's been a couple of days since we brought you news that the PS3 version of MhuFreeStore was 80% completed. Little by little we will wrap up the details so we can finish the first version.
Today we bring you a video of the actual test version, in which you can see the system completely functioning.
Note: In the video all the images correspond to the testing phase, and are not final, as their quality is inferior to those that will be in version 1.00."
Why is everybody keen on a store we can't use DLC or Full PSN games license problem on JB, so well the stores are very limited and nearly useless.
When it comes to piracy, yes it's indeed very limited yet. But when it comes to homebrew, it could become quite interesting..
I still dream of a Installous (iphone freestore) lookalike store on jailbroken PS3, with autoupdate of already installed software... that would be huge, especially when it comes to emulation/mediacenter.
We're not there yet, but any step toward this direction is warmly welcome.
Today eXtermin has posted a MHUFreeStore PS3 v1.00 PKG file: http://www.mhu2d.net/mhu2d/mhu-free-store/613-mhufreestore-ps3-100-iprimera-version-ya-disponible
Rough Translation: After many hours of work we bring you the latest addition to MHU2D.Net. MHUFreeStore para PS3. MHUFreeStore PS3. We hope that this release is as useful and succeed both as her little sister, the PSP.
For those who do not know what this is, I put a brief summary:
Is a free and open store content for your PSP and your PS3.
Content as Homebrew, free music, backgrounds, etc ...
Hence its name: Free, free of charge.
Store, store (not the store, the content will NEVER be paying).
To install it you have two options:
- Using the PKG file that is at the end of this post and install it like any other PKG (in the readme.txt file specified as)
- Use the PSP store and get the PS3 version from there. Once downloaded, connect your PSP in USB mode to the PS3 and install the PKG file from the PS3 XMB.
Do not forget that to suggest improvements, new content, ideas, etc ... you have the forum at your disposal and mailto:MhuFS@MHU2D.net If you want to advertise on the store, send an email to the same address. Thank you all and greetings.

Rough Translation: UPDATE: We have put version 1.01 since it was found a critical bug that froze the console when the language was different from English or Spanish.

I tried to run the update as it forces me to, and it tells me to install the update from the XMB, but when I head there, I don't see any update files. Anyone know how to perform this process? Or is it just that the update is not currently added to the server?
Edit: Nevermind! I just had to reset my PS3 and it is working now. This thing is great! It has all the necessary pkg files in one place. Kudos!
