193w ago - Today SKFU has shared his findings when peeking inside one of the new Dynamic / Animated PS3 Themes that have recently been introduced in PS3 Firmware 3.0.
To quote: "A quick look at the new animated themes shows that they are not really different to the common themes. I just downloaded the free theme from the Japanese store and decrypted the HDD again to see what is inside the package file. Well, it is:
You see a normal .p3t file which is the same type of data, the old themes use. It is just encrypted as .edat file which is decrypted and installed on the PS3 on the fly after downloading it.
The default picture you see in any game when you press triangle - information about the game.
That's all. Wondering if there will be a homebrew program to develop your own animated themes soon, or even a SONY tool like the one for the old themes?!"

I just hope we can make our own themes and share them all!
Yeah, but I was expecting to see a very similar file structure in both kind of themes, the "normal" and the dynamic ones. I just hope for a "PS3 Dynamic Theme Creator" to come soon.
I don't know much about this subject, but the dynamic part of the themes doesn't seem to be so complex (ejem... LDP is very simple actually ). I mean, I don't think it is as complicated as programming SPU's, it may be some sort of animation (hopefully).
Anyway, if we have to program a little bit that's fine with me, I will give it a try... until it gets hardcore
would it be possible for somebody to screen capture (record with a capture card) the dynamic theme of little big planet without the XMB in the way and then send me the video so i can make it into an iPod Touch/iPhone vwallpaper theme if possible?
Well let's assume the hypervisor is not our enemy. I mean if there would be a Windows OS on the PS3, it would easily be hacked by replacing an executeable which gets started by the system account with a program you wrote or a simple cmd.
Maybe this is to an extend possible at the PS3, too.
