The installPKG installer allows PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware (CFW) users who have been unable to delete the SingStar XMB icon to simply install the application in its place.
To quote: In order to install the installPKG application though, users will need to allow their PS3s to have Internet access in order to download the SingStar package, or alternatively, users will need to download an offline SingStar package and install it in order to use the package-installing application in its place.
For more information on how to use the application, read the read-me below:
InstallPKG - SingStar XMB Replacement Installer by DeanK
31w ago - Sony DanceStar Content Manager Nina Scherer has announced today that the SingStar client is coming to the PlayStation 3 XMB meaning no disc will be required any longer!
To quote: I promised you exciting news, so here it is! SingStar, the ultimate competitive singing game for PlayStation 3, will now be available to everyone in SCE Europe territories (as well as Australia and New Zealand) as a free download straight from the XMB.
Yes, that's right, no more need to slot in a disc to get that party started. Simply install SingStar from the XMB and you will be able to start singing in no time, share your performances with the community and visit the SingStore to get hold of more great tracks for your collection.
I've listed all the great things about SingStar on the XMB for you below but I am most excited about the fact that you can now play SingStar with your PlayStation Eye camera.
We have spent many an afternoon testing this in the office and are pretty pleased with it so please let us know what you think! This will only work for single player mode, so if you're gearing up for a serious SingStar battle, you'll obviously still need to plug in some mics.
81w ago - SingStar Back To The 80s, a PS3 3.72 Firmware game, is now working on PS3 3.55 CFW by using the SingStar Queen PlayStation 3 update file with the SingStar Back To The 80s PS3 LiGHTFORCE release.
Below are the related PlayStation 3 downloads and a brief guide for PS3 Custom Firmware users, as follows:
1. Download this SingStar Queen .PKG update file and install it on your PS3.
2. Use a SFO editor to change the game ID from BCES01257 to BCES00494 and let multiMAN change the FW to 3.55 (or do it yourself), or download this modified PARAM.SFO File by Descrambler and replace the original one.
3. Run the game on multiMAN and it should work.
P.S. Don't install any other updates or the game won't work!
What this does is use the 3.55 FW update from SingStar Queen to work on SinSstar back to 80's (a 3.72 game) making it run on 3.55 CFW.

130w ago - SingStar Content Manager Nina Scherer at London Studios has shared details on the SingStore PS3 releases for this week today, as follows:
Hello and welcome to the penultimate SingStore update of 2010!
And THIS time, let me start off with the song packs because I can hardly contain myself. It's true, ask anyone at SingStar HQ and they will tell you that I have probably been a little too excited about the brand new , exclusive and fantastic Bon Jovi: Rock song pack for a while now. What do they know, huh?
So, apart from the brand new, exclusive and fantastic Bon Jovi: Rock song pack (did I already mention that one?) we also have an equally brand new, exclusive and fantastic Sum 41 one on offer. How's that for some rock on the store? There is also a nice litte Meat Loaf collection plus two Essentials packs: Electro Pop and Pop Punk.
My top three songs this time are by Louis Armstrong, Mudhoney and Vic Reeves & The Wonder Stuff and I'll be practicing the 'Barbie Girl' song for definite!
If you haven't done so already make sure to check out our brand new website which we launched a couple of weeks ago. It's nice and shiny and you can do lots of fun stuff.
132w ago - London Studios SingStar Content Manager Nina Scherer has posted up this weeks SingStore PS3 releases today, as follows:
Exciting times this week as the first downloadable dance add-ons will be available in the SingStore and that's not all.
In addition, we're giving you dance and guitar gameplay which you'll be able to grab for free from the Extras section. Don't say we're not good to you!
Note that to get these extras, you will have to have the recent 5.10 update installed.
So apart from twelve dance - I'm expecting amazing videos in MSO, btw - and two guitar add-ons there are also great new tracks from Cheryl Cole, Ellie Goulding, Alexandra Burke, David Bowie, Morrissey and Mudhoney on offer. As always, full tracklisting is below.
You'll notice that the list below is now colour coded (songs only). Anything in green means the track is exclusive to the SingStore and has never been featured on a disc before. Some of you requested that I add this information so hope this helps?
That's me for this week. Now DANCE! Feel free to let me know what you think of the dances and what's your favourite(s).
