To quote: This new xmb mod will change your xmb to look like an OFW or Official Frimware's XMB. It will of course remove all DEX Mods like "install package files" and "app/home", but it will not remove their functions unlike OFW you can still install pkg files through homebrew apps.

The best part about it is, it is very easy to replace so you can change it with your modded files whenever you want.

Example, you have a friend over and want him to think you have a genuine gaming system then replace it with my files and it will look completly OFW! You can switch it back later!

  • Coldboot folder
  • Enable dev_flash

To apply copy files from the coldboot folder to dev_blind > vsh > resource > (copy the files with the title as in the coldboot folder)...

To quote (via Wololo): You might remember the psp2ps3 tools, and all the excitement a few weeks ago around a recent hack breakthrough that allows people to run psp isos (and, potentially, homebrews) on a hacked PS3, by “camouflaging” the game inside a PSP Mini.

Although people believed this trick was reserved to PS3s running a Custom Firmware, this might become an incorrect statement very soon…

I was contacted by scene member CapetLeVrai who apparently found a way to run those PSP ISOs on a non hacked PS3 running the latest official firmware 4.41.

The current technique will probably not blow your mind for now, as it requires you to own both a hacked and a non hacked PS3, but it could open huge opportunities in the near future if the right people decide to look into that. The basic idea is that after...
