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.
