Sponsored Links
75w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer Exofreak has released a Facebook integrated PS3 XMB mod and video which allows you to use the basic functions of the Friends category (block list, add new friend, etc) if you got banned or can't access PSN and your friends category is empty.

To quote: This is a mod i have been working on for a few hours. Basically if you got banned or cant access psn and your friends category is empty, you can use this mod to have the basic functions of the friends category (block list, add new friend etc)

BUT HERE'S THE CATCH: it uses facebook to achieve them... eg, message box would take you to your psn messages normally but now it will redirect you to your facebook messages instead! basically its facebook integration into the xmb. Here's how to do it:

  • Unrar the file from this link (above)
  • Copy xmlhost to the root of the hdd
  • Then from multiman enable dev_blind and replace catgory_friend.xml (dev_blind>vsh>resource>explore>xmb)
  • Now log into facebook from the main browser with cookies enabled.
  • Once logged in all options will be available.

Notice:

  • Don't try this mod on a unbanned console or a console that goes online
  • Backup xmb file just in case
  • Mod was made for Rogero 4.41 but will work on all even 3.55

i just did this mod cause i was tired of having an empty friends category.. if you like my mod and wanna see more mods, like my page on facebook (ironic eh?): facebook.com/Exofreak

Following up on his previous release and plugin, today PlayStation 3 developer exofreak made available an XML modification to permanently remove the annoying Singstar Icon from PS3 UK consoles complete with a video demo below followed by a SingStar Icon Remover by PS3Maxe as well.

To quote: Do you have that irritating singstar game on your xmb? Do you want to have a clean xmb with only the things you need present? It will remove singstar and also stop it from appearing

Well now with a simple package installation you can kiss the singstar logo goodbye!

Things needed:

  • MultiMAN over 4.XX.
  • Any PS3 with custom firmware 4.XX. (Theoretically it should work on rebug but i didn't try it)
  • A potato with more than 256 MB ram.

Tutorial:

Copy, FTP or download the file named "PS3~dev_hdd0~tmp~explore~xil2~game.zip"
Use multiman and double click on the zip and it will auto install and remove Singstar possibly forever

Video showing the removal:




Notes:

  • If this doesn't work delete the folder dev_hdd0/tmp/explore/xil2/game/gb and reapply through multiman.
  • The file can be downloaded directly into the ps3 via the official web browser and it can be saved to the ext hdd and applied via multiman.
  • You can bring singstar back by deleting dev_hdd0/tmp/explore/xil2/game/gb folder.
  • I don't know what all the fuss was about it took me around an hour to figure it out.
  • I didn't try it on rebug but it should work.

Please tell me if it doesn't work because i think different ps3s have different number folder.

Update: SingStar Auto-Remover (PoC) by PS3Maxe

Hi community.

1. Sorry for my bad English. I am a German guy.

2. I am not a professional developer. It's just my hobby

3. I have my own little webMAN-Mod and use it actually private only. Now i could figured it out to create a "SingStar Icon Auto-Remover" through my own webMAN-MOD - BTW many thanks to the original author of webMAN deank -

It's not new but maybe it is new implemented. There are two ways:

A.) Button-Combo
B.) Automatically

This is my way:

The "de" is depending on your country.

It is also easy to built an "auto detection and delete" modes. Here we go:

Same here, the "de" is depending on your country. Very cool for all who are annoying about this damn SingStar icon. Its just a POC and must be tested for other countries. But for me it works like a charm. There is nothing earth-shattering but i thought maybe it's helpful for the scene... so have fun.

Credits to all who inspired me (and make her stuff public for other devs) and made it possible for me. You are all incredible keep the scene alive.

One more idea: With my mod i can switch easily between webMAN "full and webMAN "lite" versions. I put both versions on my hdd and switch through button combo. For example:

  • /de_hdd0/Plugins/webftp_server.sprx
  • /de_hdd0/Plugins/webftp_server_full.sprx

And here is my code. Tested and work just fine for me:

Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developers exofreak and Nathan_r32_69 (aka Evilnat) have made available PluginX which is a multifunctional PS3 XMB Mods application with details below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Game Data)

To quote: This new app named PluginX allows you to install various plugins, gameboots and XMB mods into your PS3, with the help of a simple ui app.

Features:

  • Custom Gameboots: Replace or add a gameboot to your ps3 with 16 different gameboots.
  • Facebook Plugin: The friends category plugin which integrated facebook into your xmb menu.
  • Internet TV: TV channels plugin which installs over 30 free for all popular web tv apps including bbc itv, youtube, abc video, all into the xmb for ease of access. All the apps you Sony's incorporated adobe flash plugin for fast access.
  • Stealth XMB: Removes (*Install Package Files and app_home) option to make the PS3 look like an OFW system. They can be applied back with the same app.
  • Coldboot installer: This will install any coldboot present in the base of your USB drive.
  • This app simultaneously installs all the afore mentioned plugins, in a simple fashion. So you can change your gameboot, add Internet TV, and apply the Facebook all without ever rebooting the PS3!

Notes:

Dont load the in game XMB while running the app or you will have to hard reset. You can quit via the start button.

While in the app, every option requires a dual button press to apply, for safety reasons.
The Game Data is disguised as the data of Prototype 2, to minutely reduce ban risk for online users.

Credits:

The app was compiled and packaged by the popular developer Nathan_r32_69. He made this app wit an amazing and simple interface for everyone to understand. Thank Nathan, cause he is awesome!

The plugins were created by me (Ahmed Khail aka exofreak) and released individually on the network. I also formated the app and recompiled it for a few options.

This is nice, but its not quite right. Is it possible to re-integrate the proper gameboot from pre 3.00, so we get proper fade in + audio for the gameboot? This is a step in the right direction though.
