Solar 4.2 resigned for cfw 4.65 cobra/not cobra darknet

To quote: Hi guys, Here's another update, Solar v4.2.

Even though I took a little break, I'm back with a new Solar update; added a bunch of stuff this time around, most of them are in the changelog. There's two versions, stand-alone and Rogero Manager's. For Rogero Manager both PKGs need to be installed.

1. Solar.pkg
2. Solar_RELOAD_RM.pkg

After installed it can be launched from XMB or automatically while Rogero Manager idles. Hope you enjoy it, thanks. CAW!

Changelog Solar v4.2:

  • Rebuilt the 3D engine.
  • Added more items to UI interface.
  • Added memory counter.
  • Added FPS (frames per second).
  • Added better light engine.
  • Added a 2 hours counter for system turn off.
  • Added ICON1.PAM (animated icon).
  • Added an intro loading screen.
  • Added Solar system trivia.
  • Added some minor MP3 player tweaks.
  • Created 2 version (stand-alone/multiMAN & Rogero Manager built in "automatic launching").
  • And a lot more stuff, I should write them down as I go... lol

Update: Solar 4.2 for CFW 3.55-4.XX by Condorstrike:

Hi guys, Here’s another update, Solar v4.2. There’s two versions, stand-alone and Rogero Manager’s, for Rogero Manager both PKGs need to be installed.

  • For 3.55 CFWs
  • For 4.XX CFWs

After installed it can be launched from XMB or automatically while Rogero Manager idles. Hope you enjoy it, thanks. CAW!

Update #2: From pauline45: I don’t know if you like but I resigned (linked above) the old work by Condorstrike Solar 4.2 running on CFW 4.65 Darknet Cobra. May I say that it is very fast and it is very nice and why not have it on CFW 4.65?

It works fine on Darknet Cobra the only bug is that if you exit with the PS button the homebrew. In fact I recommend you quit by pressing or O. I hope you enjoy.

Tested: CFW 4.65 COBRA DARKNET 1.01

Definitely sad to see ya go condorstrike, and yea I've given up on it about a year ago myself but with summer coming (it's actually 80+ degrees here today) my guess is even if anything new on the free PS3 homebrew scene surfaces most people will be too busy outdoors to care much anyway.

Long gone are the days when most PS3 Devs believed in open source and were not out for profit in the hands of the nefarious Max Louarn / Paul Owen et al regimes. As the popular saying goes now though, it is what it is.

On a brighter note, hope to see ya back for the PS4 scene and take care!
