To quote: I created this XML code for all you people interested in free 100% legal Internet TV and Movie Services. I use many popular Web sites which already provide these services and made it easy for you guys to access them.
Internet channels will appear in under the TV /Video Category it will give you access to 21 Internet Video Streaming Services. This includes the likes of BBC iplayer, ABC iview and many more. You can also stream selected free movies (hosted by Youtube). I have put in a TV Guide for referencing purposes and Radio channels including SHOUTcast...
You should know all the afore mentioned features run their respected websites to view content and are 100% legal. The sites are specifically created for the PS3, credits to the respected providers.
Install method is very easy.
1. Extract this (linked above) and Install PKG
2. Enable dev_blind from multiMAN and Copy the files from the XMB folder to dev_blind > vsh > resource > explore > xmb > paste here.
Install the file EP0001-BCET00001_00-0000111122223333-A0100-V0109-PE.pkg
Enable the dev_blind from multiMAN and copy the file category_tv.xml in the directory dev_blind / vsh / resource / explore / xmb.
Note: The 21 streaming channels are accessible only from firmware 4.21 and up. This code has a very tiny coded foot print and is incredibly light (less than 600kb) this will never ban your PS3.
This will work on every firmware over 4.21.

To quote: Do you miss the classic game boot that was available on lower (2.80) firmware? Does your life feel empty and void of all meaning right before you launch a game?
Well, game in despair no longer because you can now have the classic spiderman font PLAYSTATION 3 back on all ps3 and all 4.xx firmwares. It is very simple, only 2 steps long. Even a paraplegic baby can do it!
1.) Enable dev_blind with multiman
2.) Copy the selected "custom_render_plugin.rco" and past it in dev_blind/vsh/resource/
3.) Feel the tension as 2 seconds of nostalgia course through you mind!
1.) I didn't use rco files from 2.80 instead i made my own with firmware 4.XX in mind.
2.) Should work on all 4.XX firmwares.
3.) The pack contains 3 different folders each with a different game boot.
Update: Also below (download linked above) are some Video Icons / Dynamic game icons (ICON1.PAM) for Selected Titles By Exofreak who states the following:
If you are anything like me you probably love those tiny videos that neatly play on the game icon of your XMB. Unfortunately not many developers make them, probably because they are just lazy. Even first class games like The Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite don't have them. So I decided to make my own. and I did!
Only for my favorite games though. I have also added AT3 files or the background music to suit the video. I have posted my very professionally created videos on this article for all to download and try. I will update constantly if people show their appreciation.
(THIS IS A THE VIDEO THAT PLAYS INSTEAD OF THE GAME ICON IN THE XMB)
I have made ICON0.PAM only for a few titles which are my favorite, but I am open to suggestions and will take requests if its a cool game.
1. Grand Theft Auto IV (Video And Audio)
2. Bioshock (Audio Only)
3. Bioshock 2 (Video and Audio)
4. Bioshock Infinite (Video and Audio)
5. Prototype 2 (Video and Audio)
6. The Last of Us (Video and Audio)
Grand Theft Auto Episodes from liberty City
Red Dead Redemption
Dead Rising 2
To apply open the folder (through ftp. multiman, etc) of your game backup or downloaded title and paste files from the corresponding folder into the USRDIR (The folder that has the icon files in it) Boot to XMB.
These tiny videos are extremely hard to create but it gets easier. Many tools are required and a professional PC is required. I on the other hand used a PC with a Pentium 4, Windows XP monster with an amazing 256 MB RAM!. It took me 1-2 hours to make ONE VIDEO!. So you better like my page!. For the videos i used various trailers and compiled them appropriately. Another thing to note the XMB will not slow down neither will your game, this is because Sony cleverly made the PS3 with a separate partition on the cell processor that handles this operation. This and the background music.
