I look into file patch_xmb_plugin.tcl to find out how it remove icon PlaystationNetwork, Friend from XMB and i saw it patch the address 6c 69 73 74 5f 70 73 6e and 6C 69 73 74 5F 66 72 69 65 6E 64 with empty strings (in both xmb_plugin.sprx and xmb_ingame.sprx). And then copied 2 edited file back to PS3 dev_flash. But as i said before the Playstation Network and Friend become transparent and i can still select them although it do nothing.
And after restart ps3 no icons apear on XMB screen so i had to reflash firmware on service mode. So PS3MFW builder still couldn't remove these icon properly. And the question is how to remove it completely.
Thats why I dont remove them. I've actually removed all the icons under the PSN tab and put in my own.
This is what I did and its great.
1, Remove all from PSN. log in, home, store and all that crap.
2, Install MFW
3, The PSN tab should be empty now.
4, Edit the param.sfo in MultiMan so instead of it saying HG it says HM
5, In settings tell it to always boot up with Whats new - ON
6, Now when you turn on the PS3 it goes directly to MM, you still have to click it but isn't that a lot faster than finding MM and all that, it only takes 1 click now to load it up.
If you want to put more icons there just change them from whatever they are to HM and they move to that tab. Good for CFW PS3s. As you cant get on PSN there is no need for any of them anymore so have that a homebrew tab instead.
Can someone tell me the data type for the friends tab? I know the following;
AP = Photo
AM = Music
AV = Video
AT = TV
HG = Game
CB = Network
HM = PSN
MS = MiniS
2D = PS2 Data

you couldn't remove PSN so you changed PSN to Homebrew ? I didn't understand step 4, edit the param.sfo in MultiMan so instead of it saying HG it says HM. How to change it ? i used PS3 SFO editor 0.80 i didn't see a setting to change it.
