Here is an XMB MOD for the upcoming PS3Xploit v3, as we wait patiently the developer's on the Ps3Xploit Team continue working hard to polish up various elements to v3 of the exploit that is tailored to PS3 3k Models + (NoN-CFW Compatible Ps3 Console's). As the official PS3Xploit Team continues their work ps3 developer's @DeViL303 & @pink1 have a new XMB feature for OFW 4.82 once the exploit (v3) is Released, The XMB as shown in the included video allows you to download demo version of the games, just simple demo downloads without having to enter and navigate through the PS Store, Very user-friendly delete the demo and then quickly and easily re-download the demo at any time, while browsing much faster the vast selection offered in the PS Store, all directly from the convenience of the XMB.
This is an XMB mod that myself and pink1 created over last few days, Its fairly simple, it allows demoes to be downloaded from Sony servers without using the PS Store.
It has a couple of pros and cons that I can think of like
- Will work on OFW 4.82 once we have a way to write an xml and rco to flash.
- Is 100% stable as it uses OFW functions, no custom plugins.
- Allows users without a PSN account to get demoes.
- Will work on banned consoles.
- v1.0 just includes EU demoes.
- Future version could include demos from ALL regions.
- No background download due to OFW method used.
- Installation will require writing to flash so there is a soft brick risk if it fails (requiring reinstall of FW).
- No different than getting the demo on your PC, and then installing it via Install Package Files.
Anyway Demo Downloader v1.0 is finished, but its only for OFW 4.82, this mod will be FW dependant as it requires a rco edit, So we will probably not be releasing versions for all CFWs as it just causes issues when people install it on wrong FW, people just cant read warnings and descriptions I might add it to my other mod -CFW Extras category- for Rebug someday.
Massive thanks to @pink1 for all the help with this, without his scripting knowledge I would probably still be writing the xml , well actually I would have just gave up.
We will release DD v1.0 a few days after Team PS3Xploit release their Xploit v3.0 as that will be required to install it initially, all going to plan.
Side note, I had another idea for a similar XMB item or a sub category within this item: we could have a game update downloader too on the XMB, Im not sure if users would find that useful or if its even possible but it should be. Games updates would need to be divided alphabetically or something and by region too maybe as there would be a lots of them.

Code Execution on Blu-ray Drives from both PS3 & PS4 --- #36C3 Talk to be presented by @oct0xorThe Stages from CCC are always a very good entrypoint to present the newest and latest in Hacking and Security, especially for Video Game Consoles as seen in the past. In fact, last year in 2018, you can probably remember how much Talks we saw for both the PS4 and the PSVita (just in Case you missed it [I dare you if you actually did ] or you want to watch all Important Streams in Re-Live again - click here). So of course, as it's for this year, many Developers are welcome to join the Stages for this years #36C3 Event to present their newest Achievements such as in Security, Hardware & Making, Ethics, Society & Politics, CCC [internal], Entertainment, Science, Art & Culture and Resilience & Sustainability - as you are always used to it. So while the Preparations from both the Event Organizers and all Developers at full blast, today known Developer @oct0xor announced that he will be also participate on the Stage with a PlayStation-related Talk, where he will "shed a light on internals and security of Sony PlayStation Blu-ray disc drives" together with Topics of "Firmware Dumping", "Reverse Engineering" and getting "Code Execution" for their respective Blu-ray Drives on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4! This is definitely worth to follow, especially since this Topic always kinda lacked in the Community, due to showing less Interest to the Blu-ray Drives.

Super Mario War v1.8_r4 - New Enchantments + Ps3HEN (signed) by blckbearSuper Mario War was ported to PlayStation 3 (PS3) Custom Firmware originally by lahrymose, the installation back then required a pkg install and then data files to be placed on root of the PS3 HDD. Recently psx-place user @blckbear_ had released two revisions (r3 / r4) which has negated the need for the data files and only the pkg needs installed now. Also this pkg is signed and works with not only CFW but also PS3HEN. Plus blkbear_ also has added several other subtle enchantments for your viewing pleasure..
