8w ago - Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 developer exofreak is back with a multiMAN Integrated XMB which allows users to download, install and launch multiMAN and its tools from the PlayStation 3 XMB menu.
The is my first officially released mm theme. Although i have been making themes for a while, this is the first one i am releasing.
Beyond Two Souls is a really well crafted game. I believe it stands among many other great games released this year. This theme is in honour of the brilliant masterpiece that is Beyond. Enjoy.
I changed all the backgrounds, Used official icons instead of default ones, the theme audio is the main theme of beyond two souls. Its in multimans proprietary .thm format so its very easy to install and remove later instead of .pkg format which is permanent. I didn't do anything with the xmb icon because i dident feel it necessary. The backgrounds are full 1080p.
Double click the file in mmOS.
Launch Game Backups Directly from XMB! (No Manager/Last Game Required) by Exofreak
Update: You can now do everthing that i initially attempted without going through all the hassle
Then install this plugin into prx loader (deanbg.com/webftp_server.sprx)
Thats it. Everything will be automatically be done for you. Disregard the rest below, its for dev's
I made some XML Mods for the people willing to test them out. Basically I replaced the IP with a local proxy (thanks to deank). Now Games can be mounted onto the XMB directly from the PS3 and on any PS3
I have made xml for only 4 games yet. The best part is that it isn't necessary for you to have all 4 xml enabled as i made each separate so if you only need gta5 you can remove the rest. First thing you need to do is rename your game backup folders
rename your game backups to:
The Last Of Us
All the above games must be on the internal hdd and in the GAMES folder (sorry GAMEZ is not supported yet)
Assassins Creed III MUST BE ON USB001
Sorry if its inconvenient but hey at least it works. Second use multiMAN to install what ever necessary game xml you need so if you need gta5 open the gta 5 folder from the downloaded link and double x the zip file. Then open the main install folder in the rar and double x both of the zip files. That's pretty much it.
You will need the latest version of prx loader and you must have this (deanbg.com/webftp_server.sprx) new prx (v1.05) by my buddy deank installed.
With the help of the prxloader and the webbrowser plugin, you can now mount games directly from any web browser.
So if you modify the ps3 web browser to have shortcuts of the web browser, and each shortcut redirects you to the mount location of any selected game.
Don't get it? than check out this video demo i made above.
Very fast compared to other methods (It takes only 3 seconds as opposed to 32 sec with multiman and 19 sec with lastGAME
Efficient requires almost 0 mb and has very basic xml structure
No ban risk, there is zero ban risk. You can mount games with psn logged in with ease.
Looks more natural on the xmb
JUST THE WEB BROWSER! each time you select a game it uses only the default browser
Requires basic xml knowledge. The end user to make his own xml structure with his own ip and folder structure.
Requires multiman to be installed
The biggest problem is than since everyone has a diffrent unique ip, there is no way i can make a defult one that works with everyones ps3
Now in the xmb you will a new folder in the games category, it will have some games which will always give you an error (IP Conflict) but you can get an idea what your games would look like.
I am really sorry if this isn't enough because this is all i could give you mainly because of the ip conflict. But this info deserves to be know in the scene.
You can xml edit and replace the ip and folder structure with your own. You can also change the title, add info, change the pic.
I am writing a tutorial, that makes this process simpler. Till than this is just a POC. XML is pretty simple ill make a good tut with images and stuff soon :}

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.
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!
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.
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:
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.
