Status Update, I'm back... bringing new apps, including a Homebrew game called POINTMAN, won't release till they're 100% finished and usable on CFW4.21. Also updates to Solar and a couple of older/unreleased apps.

Hi everyone. I have a new unofficial god war theme. I just figured out how to create my own xmb icons so I thought I'll show you my work. I made it from other old p3t themes that I got from ps3 news , other old multiman themes and my own pictures I downloaded off google. Thanks condorstrike for the icon0 and picpa images.
