This will bring the "/app_home/GAME" and "Install PKG" options back.
3. In "/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/category_psn.xml" switch "root" and "tool_root".
This will add Title Store previews in the network section.
4. In "/sys/external" you grab liblv2dbg_for_dex from a debug unit and rename it liblv2dbg_for_cex. Replace liblv2dbg_for_cex with your new one and also add the debug liblv2dbg_for_dex.
Now you also have the debug options enabled. I don't know how to show up the debug options icon yet, but you can modify the settings via the registry.
How2 Handle Debug Options Without Icon
All information should be free. So here another part of the Custom Firmware research.
My previous post already explained some changes they enable. One nice one I didn't mention yet is, that it activates the Debug Options.
The options are enabled now, just the icon is missing. But there is a different way you can handle them. As we already knew, the xregistry.sys (dev_flash2/etc) stores all actual settings.
With the changes mentioned in last post, if you tried those; you may have noticed a debug message in the upper right corner. This actually proves the debug options are unlocked to use.
Just extract the xregistry.sys now and find the debug options. Activate them with a 1 instead a 0. I didn't test all so far, but seems most is fine.

OK Major update on my part when it comes to Blu-Ray fixes on ps3! First let me say I can not fix it with my current tools as it is actually a HDCP/AACS problem. I compared slim consoles with my fat one and found only the fat ones are affected so far.
I searched diligently for for anything I could find and discovered that the Blu-Ray fails because the copy protection is disabled and the decryption keys do not line up. I tried region free Blu-Ray discs and one from every region yet none played.
I ruled the region coding out because it can play region A when it has no BD+,AACS,HDCP, ect. Even after replacing devflash 0,2,and 3 and trying different PUP files It is clear that The PS3 refuses to enable "VFLASH" when updating because the decryption keys do not match and it "(re)-disables" Blu-Ray every time it is Up/Downgraded.
Every Update_log.txt reveals that to be true. A script or payload that hooks the .PUP file before it is loaded and forces the correct flag to update the BD-Player DRM may be possible but it is unlikely. The DRM keys are specific to each console if I am not mistaken. Understanding it Like that, I have little hope of a new modified .PUP to fix this.
I think a new psgroove payload that can work around AACS/HDCP is in order at this point. The only other solution is a payload that blocks the internal BD player and loads a completely home brew one in its place. If anyone has any input or wants to try to make such a payload I will be the test subject.

I hope this helps! PS I'll give $50 to the first universal fix that I can verify works on my fatty.
