Guide: How to Place PS3 Apps into Different XMB Categories

650°
200w ago - Today NZHawk has shared on his blog (linked above) what he calls a little find, specifically how to place PS3 apps into different PlayStation 3 XMB categories.

To quote: "Well I was talking to DarkHacker about param.sfo files and that. He asked me to try changing the CATAGORY string to 'HM' and see what it did.

It made the package install under the PlayStation Network catagory on the XMB. DarkHacker and I then worked out the rest of the catagories that its possible to install and run hombrew applications to the XMB, and found them all except Users, Settings and Friends (which all seem to be filled with the XML files in the VSH flash folder).

String / Category
HM / Playstation Network
CB / Network
HG / Game
AV / Video
AM / Music
AP / Photo
AT / TV

I thought this was quite interesting, and would be great if we could add a Hombrew catagory to the xmb and make all hombrew apps install under it to make some hombrew standard, much like the wii has. (Also has anyone though about making a database of hombrew Title IDs to keep track?)

Oh, and its possible to change this location after install via application settings."

Thanks to PSGroove for the news tip and to Jes03 for posting this a...

700°
200w ago - Today xttl has released a PS3 Doom homebrew port v0.01 with source code for JailBreak users, followed by v0.02 which also includes sound support and some more updates below.

Download: PS3 Doom Homebrew Port v0.01 with Source Code / PS3 Doom Homebrew Port v0.02 with Source Code / PS3 Doom Homebrew Port v0.03 with Source Code / PS3 Doom Homebrew Port v0.04 with Source Code / PS3 Doom Homebrew Port v0.05

To quote: v3 is now out. Sound effects should work pretty much perfectly now, there's a simple launcher that will allow you to select an IWAD if you have multiple ones available (no PWADs yet, and the launcher menu only lists the first 10 IWADs it finds which can happen if you have duplicates of them on different storage devices) and in case an error happens after graphics have been initalized, you'll see the error message on screen. (not just via ethernet debugging if enabled).

I also switched the license to GPLv2 now...
 

PS3 LV1 Syscalls Dumped by KaKaroToKS, Payload Incoming

550°
200w ago - Update: KaKaroToKS has now released the PL3 LV1 Hypercall Tracer Payload which can be used by developers to trace PS3 syscalls and hypercalls.

Today Dertyp at PSX-Scene (linked above) reports that [Register or Login to view links] has dumped the PS3 LV1 syscalls, and plans to update his payload soon to allow other developers to dump the calls.

To quote: For Those Of You Who Are Asking What This Is:

level-1 syscalls are used to call hypervisor functions. On a PS3 the hypervisor is known as as "lv1? (level1) since it is the lowest level that runs directly on top of the hardware. The operating system is executed on top of this and is known as "lv2? (level2).

The two common operating systems are GameOS which PS3 games run on, and OtherOS which is usually used to run linux. Since both OSes run on top of the same lv1 hypervisor, they use the same set of hypercalls which has been partially documented here.

KaKaRoToKS Recent Tweets:

FINALLY able to dump (over eth) all lv1 calls!! Will push it soon!

To everyone misunderstanding: no lv1 access, all I did was be able to dump the "call trace" of lv1 hypercalls. same as payload_dump_syscalls
