The functionality of Ps3Xploit (v3.0) HAN continues to evolve as more and more features are developed. In recent days we have seen the ability to change the Coldboot (boot-logo) and also the XMB Wave in the backgorund but now the Ps3Xploit team has taken it a step farther with the release of even more tools to customize your XMB. With three new tools Image Font Replacer , XML Replacer & RCO Resource Replacer some of the tools are more geared to advance user's/developer's with an understanding of XML & RCO modding on the PS3 XMB. All 3 tools can be used on both 4.82 OFW & CFW and HAN does not need to be activated, additional info about XMB Modding can be learned in our forums and also at ps3devwiki

While there is no native PS3 Homebrew support with the release of PS3Xploit HAN (for 3k/4k models) , that is not stopping from other forms of homebrew from launching. Since the emulators of (PS1/PS2/PSP) are now unlocked,, this has open the possibility for custom pkg to use on the PS2 Classic Emulator. That means some homebrew's are capable of running on those newer PS3 console's. While there is limitations, PSP itself being the biggest as the PS3 simply at this time has been nable to boot much of any significant homebrew of the platform.. However that has not been the case for the PS2 and likely the PS1. First we seen SNES Station (Super Nintendo / Famicom Emulator) a PS2 Homebrew that has proved to work with HAN. Now psx-place user @NiHuShu has launched UlaunchELF (ps2 homebrew app) and has managed to get PGEN (Sega Genesis / Mega Drive) emulators (ps2 homebrew) running
