Developer DeViL303 is always looking at ways to tweak and enhance the PS3 XMB for PS3 Custom Firmware user's as we have witnessed with project such as XMB Package Downloader (XMBPD) & webMAN Launchpad and also his work with teammates of XMB Manager Plus (XMBM+) and this latest release for the XMB gives us the ability to swap out a pre-arranged boot_plugin.txt files to enabled and disable some ps3 plugins. While they are pre-arranged options they can be customized by the user's giving you 5 quick combinations for your plugin changing needs. This release has been developed and tested for REBUG v4.81.xx ONLY . Take note this release uses COBRA's (boot_plugin.txt) method of loading plugins & also requires webMAN MOD for this new functional XMB mod to work.
Here is a beta of a simple little XMB mod that allows the user to switch between 5 pre prepared boot_plugins.txt files. To install it initially, Simply copy the 2 category network xmls to dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xml/ and then install the tiny package. Then you can place your 5 boot_plugins.txt files into the "boot_plugin_x" folders which you will find at dev_hdd0/game/BOOTPGTSW/USRDIR/ (one txt file in each folder). Now this went from the idea stage to completed in just a few hours last night, getting the PVR set up and uploading the video took most of that time. I knows its a bit crude but it does the job. If you want to you can edit the xml file so it says which plugins are included in each "slot" like I have done in the screen shots/video.
The main weak point in this mod is that it always requires wMM to be running for its web commands which are used to swap the files. So if you install a boot_plugins.txt file without webMAN mod contained in it, none of the options will work and you will have to add wMM again manually. (unless you are on Rebug and running webMAN mod from dev_flash via the toolbox toggle, then you are fine)
Maybe someday we will be able to use a different system plugin for file manipulation, that way mods like this could be made webMAN Mod independent and Cobra independent, Also it would speed things up as the browser slows it down and makes it a bit clunky, would be nice and clean if it could use another plugin.
Thanks to @Berion for the icons and @aldostools for the great features of webMAN MOD.
- Note 1: Only tested on Rebug 4.81
- Note 2: webMAN MOD Required
- Note 3: After installing this ALL boot_plugins.txt files in the 5 folders are blank, so add your own txt files before you use it.
- Note 4: You must have your sprx files already in place, All this does is swap the txt files to allow for easy switching of the enabled plugins.
- Note 5: If you want more or less "slots" you can edit the xml quite easily

RPCS3 (PS3 Emulator) - April 2018 Progress ReportMaybe you had it already recognized but the last few days and weeks, the PS4 had it's priorities regarding several highlights like from various Kernel Exploits for several newer System Firmwares or even from a preview for a new "Framework" for making things easier in Future by getting more Power to all Functions within the PS4. We know that you won't get tired about the latest and greatest News for the PS4 but there are also other Consoles made by Sony, who deserved your attention as well - so as it is for it's predecessor the PS3. And maybe even when you can enjoy your Backups and Homebrews on the latest System Firmware available for the PS3, it doesn't mean that the Developers are stopping to "tinker" with the Console or that there is nothing more left to explore. So as the Team behind the "RPCS3 PS3 Emulator" doesn't by updating their monthly "Progress Report" for April 2018.Continue reading
Making Video Games more accessible for "The Disabled"Okay, maybe you will think now why such a site like PSX-Place.com takes care about such a topic, as described in the headline and why this topic will include only 10% of Information about the PS4 and 90% about the Xbox One - on a site like this all about hacking and exploiting PlayStation Consoles only. But I would like to introduce you three interesting ways from the three major companies (namely Sony, Nintendo & Microsoft) how they try to achieve "Making Video Games playable for everyone" - and with "everyone" I mean not only you as a reader, but also for people with disabilites - where those people have always to fight with several difficulties not only in their everyday life. but also when they like to play Video Games like you do. And maybe this topic won't have such an impact with your interest, but I think they deserve it to be mentioned, since those are the "True Heroes" - not those who have the best skills or who are the fastest in a Video Game.Continue reading
Kernel Exploit for FW 5.53 sneak-peek by @Mathieulh --- UPDATE: Latest FW 5.55 as well !!!Remember when we talked about that the PS4 is still in search of it's full potential and that the Developers are still hard-working with Exploits and other cool stuff for newer System Firmwares - like @SpecterDev does with System Firmware 5.05 - then you shouldn't be suprised that other great Developers like @Mathieulh are also using their research for exploiting even newer System Firmwares - as he showed it with his little "sneak-peek" for System Firmware 5.53. This would mean that the lastest System Firmware from Sony would be exploitable and Homebrew would be possible - by the current state of reading. --- UPDATE: @mathieulh gains access to a Kernel Exploit on System Firmware 5.55 as well --- Check Down Below for further information!Continue reading
