To quote from cosimo98, roughly translated: Hi guys, today Alexander has released an unofficial Iris Update Manager, the current version is 2.66U.
I tested it personally and it is virtually perfect. In this Update Alex has eliminated the need to patch the file to start the games without the disc, therefore, do not need to do is enable the payload discless and games will work without having to start from the disc.
Another novelty is the fan control utility, time will be set by default on syscon...
20w ago - Following up on his previous modification, today PlayStation 3 developer Exofreak is back with a video demonstrating a new PS3 XMB Mod which makes your PS3 CFW (Custom Firmware) look like OFW (Official Firmware) below.
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!
To apply copy files from the coldboot folder to dev_blind > vsh > resource > (copy the files with the title as in the coldboot folder)...

21w ago - Developer Brian Provinciano announced today that their Retro City Rampage update adds Retro+ Mode and a Prototype Version with details below.
To quote: A new Retro City Rampage update has just dropped, which takes things both forward and backward! To celebrate the update, Retro City Rampage is on sale for $4.99.

RETRO+ Enhanced Graphics Mode
The "RETRO+" Enhanced Graphics Mode gives RCR a neo-retro boost with dynamic shadows, doubling the colors on screen. The shadows and increased contrast help sprites pop like never before. For purists, the original 8-bit mode is still there in all its glory, but if you're ready for a slight retro remix, RETRO+ is a great new way to enjoy the game.
"ROM" City Rampage, an 8-bit hardware-accurate prototype has also been added. Drive around Theftropolis with the strict limitations of 1980s hardware, sprite flicker and all.
Compare side by side how closely Retro City Rampage adheres to classic hardware and where it strays, and see what really was possible in 1989. See what actually could've been released on cartridge, had...
21w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer Exofreak has released a Facebook integrated PS3 XMB mod and video which allows you to use the basic functions of the Friends category (block list, add new friend, etc) if you got banned or can't access PSN and your friends category is empty.
To quote: This is a mod i have been working on for a few hours. Basically if you got banned or cant access psn and your friends category is empty, you can use this mod to have the basic functions of the friends category (block list, add new friend etc)
BUT HERE'S THE CATCH: it uses facebook to achieve them... eg, message box would take you to your psn messages normally but now it will redirect you to your facebook messages instead! basically its facebook integration into the xmb. Here's how to do it:
Unrar the file from this link (above)
Copy xmlhost to the root of the hdd
Then from multiman enable dev_blind and replace catgory_friend.xml (dev_blind>vsh>resource>explore>xmb)
Now log into facebook from the main browser with cookies enabled.
