37w ago - Shortly following his PS3Ultimate PS3 TV Application v1.10 update, PlayStation 3 homebrew developer RazorX has also released a PS3 RCO Free Package Manager and Web Browser Plus PKG file with details below.
To quote: Hey guys I've created this simple rco free package manager installable zip file for you, this can easily be incorporated into your cfw with very little impact and is completely safe and for those of you who want to install a package manager that won't need you to replace any rco files, this is great if you created your own cfw and installing a standard package manager will change your XMB names or layout.
This also will allow you to install packages from:
Along with this I am releasing a Web browser which utilizes multimans browser which means you can launch the Web browser from the network category and download pkg files directly to your hdd and with this package manager install them also the package manager it's self will show up in the network category so it's out of the way.
This won't damage or replace any other package manager you have installed.
For those of you who don't know how to install this all you do is extract the zip and put the PS3~dev_blind~vsh~resource~explore~xmb.zip file on your usb stick then launch multiman, goto mmOS then browse your usb stick and double click on the file and it will ask you if you want to install it choose yes and you're done.
Hope you enjoy this please let me know what you think..
Q: What does RCO-Free mean?
A: It has exellent compatibility because it will work on just about anything also imagine you made your own cfw with altered rco files and set it up perfect just the way you like it then you install a package manager and because it replaced a rco that you had altered you hard work is gone.
Also it reduces the size to next to nothing and it makes it 100% easier to incorporate it into your own cfw if you choose to make one or already have one and since the xml files hardly change you could probably get away with installing it on any update whether you install it with the installable zip or do it manually and it has the multiman downloads folder added to it.
So if you download a pkg through multiman it will show up on the package manager and it also has the directory for the web browser app I provided you can see the full list in the spoiler I'm all about making things simple why make the same app complicated if you can make it simple also if you don't know what your doing its best not to install something that could potentially damage your PS3 with this you don't need to worry.

To quote: Hi all, today I've brought you my simple TV app for those of you who are sick of having no TV section now you will have with this app I've setup for you.
all you have to do is replace your category_tv.xml with the one i have provided in TV Section (TV) v1.01.zip
if you want it in your TV category or if you prefer it in your Video category just replace your category_video.xml with the one I provided in the TV Section (VIDEO) v1.01.zip but don't use both
you can replace your XML file by mounting your flash with a program or through multiman then replacing it
then install the PKG file and your done

HFS aka HFS HTTP File Server will give you the ability to copy files to your PS3 and stream videos directly to your ps3 it also can be used for much more than this but this is what i use it for also with the modification. i have made you will be able to upload videos you have on your PS3 to your PC.
i have set everything up for you it should be a simple matter of loading. HFS up and adding your files to it you will also need to create a Upload folder on your pc and drag it over onto HFS and right click the folder and set it up as a upload directory so you can upload pictures and with my mod videos from your PS3 to your PC.
i've set the HFS website up as localhost if this doesnt work change localhost to your pc's ip address, for example change localhost to 192.168.0.2 and everything should work perfectly to make it easier for you to change the ip address ive set it up so it reads the website address from the root of your ps3's hdd so please put the hfs.xml in the root of your ps3's hdd so basically it should be put in /dev_hdd0/ this will allow you to easily remember were it is if you need to change the ip address.
Here are the files:
HFS XML File: http://www.sendspace.com/file/rlrae7
PS3Ultimate TV Video Bypass: http://www.sendspace.com/file/ho7m6t
The PS3Ultimate TV Video Bypass contains the dev_flash~vsh~resource~explore~xmb.zip which you install using multiman this will allow you to upload your videos from your PS3 to your PC.
With 1.09 I've updated most of the app from the themes to the movie links and movies. I've also added a links section to tidy the main section up. Ive also added new content including ps3 xil for those who want to use it to add custom channels and tidy up the ps3's main XMB or if your CFW has removed them, then they should be available again. I've also changed the update to a direct link but most of my time and effort has been focused on the movies section.
I decided to release this update a little sooner than I was going to, so remember I'm working on this everyday, so keep checking for updates but remember it can be a slow process and I'm working alone. So please be patient and if you have just installed this update remember to also download and install a theme so everything is up to date.
