To quote: Here is my tool to help you make your custom PS3 boot logos.

For examples: (thx to mrmuppet and me)

You will need:

  • Photoshop (To create your Boot Logo)
  • Photoshop DDS plugin (To allow you to edit the Logo)
  • The attached Boot Logo Creator
  • SimplyZip

Basic Instructions:

1. Install Photoshop
2. Install the DDS Plugin [Register or Login to view links]
3. Edit your DDS files
4. Run Coldboot Creator and follow the steps

Full Instructions:

1. After You have installed Photoshop and the dds plug-in you will need to open the dds files in the "Boot Logo's (dds's)" Folder. When you open the DDS click on "Load Using Default Sizes"


2. When you have created your desired logo you have to save it with these settings:


3. Repeat this for all 6 pictures Do Not resize the pictures (Resolution)
4. Run "Coldboot Creator.exe" and select "Step1"


5. You will need to convert you DDS files to GTF files, to do this Click "Convert Pictures" and follow the instructions.
6. When you have converted your pictures Browse to all the files it asks for:


7. Press Start and it should say Success, then close that window and click Step2
8. Follow the on screen instructions with pictures to compress the step1 file


9. Click step3
10. Browse to the required files and click finish to create the final Coldboot.raf


11. Copy the Coldboot.raf to /dev_flash/vsh/resource on your ps3 (You will need a way to write to flash eg. Asbestos or FreeFlash 3.55 compiled or dev_blind)

Do not change the size of the images (Resolution)There are no checks, if you change the size your coldboot will not work!

I have tested this on 3.55, it should work on 3.41 since the Coldboot.raf files are the same (Correct me if i'm wrong)

Looking for some clarification... is there a minimum version of PS that this will work with? Also, on Win7 does it need to run in a certain compatibility mode?

great program!! originally made an coldboot 5 monthes ago and remembered that I had 6 pages. cause of HDMI / SD and than fade in, normal, fade out.

so you have all these summarized into one picture. It would be great if this program would auto generate these fade in/out.

Or if you have all of these 6 pages (or just 3) you could make in the fade in different stuff which is disappearing at the normal screen
Hope you got my point. That would be really great but your program is already fantastic!!

boulard: are you at windows xp? if yes you have to disable the aerobanner wit the argument. Just open cmd --> put the icon in the cmd window --> type in the argument (/noaero or so see news page ore help) --> enter

or if you are at win 7 you have to install the net framework 4.0. (best way via windows updater)

like i said i downloaded the app and try to run it but it flashes and disappears.at first it required net frame work 4.0.some numbers i got that, then i tried it and that's what it does. so obviously i'm missing something important here. i made a bunch of colorless colboots before and they work just fine and color would be great if i can get this to work. any help would be great.

I tried and it doesn't like my version of Photoshop.

Where is the FULL version as that has Photoshop built into it?

Did you install the nvidia dds plugin for photoshop?
