98w ago - This weekend DeViL303 has made available PS3 XMB File Manager Beta v0.02 for Rebug 3.55.2 CFW which allows Custom Firmware users to examine the PlayStation 3 file system with details outlined below.
To quote: I have made a little XMB mod for Rebug 3.55.2 that I call XMB File Manager (XMBFM). It is a modded version of Rebug's package manager that allows the entire ps3 filesystem to be browsed and also any files deleted.
I'm hoping to add things like copy function etc but would like to get feedback and help if anyones game. This wont work on standard CFW for now but i will hopefully release a standard version soon if anyone thinks I should bother.
This is a beta version for anyone who might be interested in helping me test it or improve on it.
It requires you to switch 2 files from dev_flash. heres a quick tut:
I use multiman by selecting the mount dev_flash to dev_blind option.
then copy over the 2 files to thier locations
category_game.xml goes in dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/
explore_plugin_full.rco goes in dev_blind/vsh/resource/
This is perfectly safe and I have even tested deleting most of dev_flash before and its easy reinstall FW through recovery menu so dont worry, just make sure you are on Rebug 3.55.2, It migtht cause a error on normal 3.55CFW
Have fun and let me know if you have an ideas on how I could expand it by adding things like copy function etc. Im not the best at this so any help is much appreciated?
Big Thanks to Cyberskunk and Evilsperm (Team Rebug) for the package manager which this is based on.
OK fixed view in all languages & ingame XMB, also injected it into the latest REBUG Package Manager installer (for easier install) which makes it compatible to 3.41/3.55 (also with or without REBUG red PSN icon) so this is v0.8 --> XMBFM v0.8 (3.41/3.55)
I have made a change to the 2 xml files based on last bitsbubba package xmls.
1. Organized and comment xmls for better understanding
2. Edited category_game_tool2.xml to automatcally fetch the data from category_game.xml as i suggested to devil. With this we only have to edit category_game.xml!
PS3 XMB File Manager Beta v0.08b (PS3 XMBFM v0.08b Mod NoWIP-YTXL.xml) for 3.55 / 3.41 CFW (via psx-scene.com/forums/f6/article-100732/index2.html#post951313)
I have modified the DeViL303/andreus xml v0.08b:
1- I changed the "Information" link to YouTube XL - I find it more useful than a link to a forum
2- I remarked/removed the 2 useless WIP icons to unclutter it a bit: the "PS Vita System Application Utility" icon is a duplicate of PS3 Game Data Manager, the "Life with Playstation" is just a link to Rogero.
Credits to DeViL303, ps3hen, andreus, bitsbubba, and others that I forget to mention...
Included Andreus's improved custom Filesystem browser with icons and better info. Its way better.
Removed entry for original filemanger but left the code in so people can compare if they want, Andreus's is over 100 times more code and very flexible and future proof
Added some more icons and made some titles more user friendly in andreus's FM, removed all usb devices except 000, 001, and 006, feedback ? do we need the others, i suppose for old 4 port phats maybe?
Changed FM code so dev_blind only shows in debug mode/xmb for safety so people dont delete thier dev_flash (added a warning too).
Changed icons for vita manger (still WIP), changed "info" title to "PS3Crunch Release Thread" , updated it to newer link.
Moved in gamedata , savedata and savedata minis/psp from main XMB to XMBM (havnt done mc utility yet as was told there might be a bug with that so more testing required)
Some more changes to the updater link, stil WIP, not workin, server error now, getting worse, must revert back to brewology link, at least it downloaded with that one.

To quote: Here is a patched Rebug 0.7 Update Package to enable PSN and v4.25 spoofing on Rebug 3.55.2 Firmware. You must already be using Rebug FW 3.55.2 to use this. If you have already installed Rebug's Official Update 0.7 before, you can still install this. This package relies on you using Rebug's own CEX / DEX Selector to change between 3.55 and 4.25 (PSN access).
I have used all original Rebug files and patched them manually. The 'version.txt' was pulled from the original 4.25 pup. Selfs and 'index.dat' were rebuilt using fail0verflow tools. 'vsh.self.swp' and 'vsh.self.cexsp' are correctly patched to enable PSN access, 4.25 spoofing and switching between Debug and Retail XMB modes without causing RSOD. There are basically 3 modes:
Mode: Normal XMB: Debug = no spoofing (3.55), no PSN access, has 'Debug' options in 'Settings'.
Mode: Rebug XMB: Debug = Spoofed (4.25), PSN enabled, has 'Debug' options in 'Settings'.
Mode: Rebug XMB: Retail = Spoofed (4.25), PSN enabled, no 'Debug' options in 'Settings'.
All above modes are tested working with Reactpsn.
Thanks to Itskamel for his perseverance in sussing out how the fw version should be written in the self. The anonymous source who released the current PSN pass-phrase. Fail0verflow for their tools. Rebug.
Before you install this package, make sure you are in 'normal' mode (3.55) and are not using any other spoofers. If you are, disable and uninstall them. If you have been using FckPSN, put your original 'CA27.cer' back. If you are already spoofed (rebug mode) using Rebug's CEX/DEX selector, use it again to change back to 3.55. Do this by pressing 'L1 + Cross(X)' within the selector. Status should say 'Normal Mode'. Exit selector and check system FW is 3.55.
Now install the 'Rebug_PSN_UPDATE_0.7r3_3.55.2.pkg' from the link below. If you get the message 'same version already installed, continue' select 'YES'.
Now run 'Rebug Unofficial PSN Update Package 0.7r3 (3.55.2)' from XMB (ignore the stuff about v4.11). Select 'YES'. You will get a message 'Update Complete - System Will Reboot'.
After reboot, go back into Rebug's CEX/DEX selector. Press 'L1 + Circle(O)' to activate Rebug mode. Press 'PS' button and exit the selector. System will reboot. Now check in system settings/info that your firmware version says 'version 4.25'.
If it does, you have done the above procedure correctly and you can now log in to PSN. You can also now uninstall 'Rebug Unofficial PSN Update Package 0.7r3 (3.55.2)' from XMB.
Note: If you haven't installed Rebug's CEX/DEX selector, you can find it in 'Install Package Files'/'PS3 Hard Disk'. Both versions 1.5.1 and 1.6.1 work fine. This is for Rebug 3.55.2 Firmware only.
No it is a 3.55.v2 rebug their is higher version like 4.11 dex and 4.21 dex but if you are not technically sound i would not recommend it,you can do a lot more but need some extended knowledge to do the other things, and always a possibility of bricking system so read tutorials and then decide, i chose not to i had it but had glitches so i went back to 3.55 cheers read and decide
