Added the ToolBox to [app_home/PS3_GAME] to restore multiMAN/StealthMAN launch mode from ToolBox.
Updated the ReactPSN patch to work offline without the need to log into PSN at all (Credits to Team Rebug for their original 4.30.1 Patch)
Added both noBD/noBT patches to allow installation on consoles with broken BluRay Drive or Bluetooth board.

i made a quick fix here to solve the ingame xmb problem, its not brilliant this removes the install package file options from the xmb. rogero bascially patched the chinese firmware so it can be installed on any console they must be good at hacking but useless at creating custom firmwares.
anyway to use this go into multiman enable dev_blind access you need to ftp into your console and make a backup of the original vsh folder then replace the files with the one in the download and reboot the console.
if you need to install a package you will have to replace the original files for now. i'm sure it will be fixed properly soon.
WARNING: only attempt this if you have a e3 flasher or progskeet and/or if you are confident with this, if you mess up dev_flash you will need to downgrade to 3.55 to reinstall this firmware: http://www.putlocker.com/file/004D362C6D2EBFF3
