    That has TV category removed too, with TV apps showing at the bottom of video ;)

    Once you have those xmls and rco loaded, you can delete the:
    • explore_category_tv.sprx
    • explore_category_psn.sprx
    • explore_category_friend.sprx
    • explore_category_tv.rco
    • explore_category_psn.rco
    • explore_category_friend.rco
    • category_tv.xml
    • category_psn.xml
    • category_friend.xml
    • hknw_plugin.sprx
    • hknw_plugin.rco
    • hknw_plugin folder of images in resources
    • all sprx with np in name.
    • etc, i deleted about 30 sprx from my system. :)

    Slightly different , but still related to optimising xmls so I will put it here.

    When calling a weblink from xmbml, this way is the most efficient and takes least amount of lines of xml:
    Code:
    <View id="seg_link">
     <Attributes>
     <Table key="link">
     <Pair key="icon_rsc"><String>tex_link</String></Pair>
     <Pair key="title_rsc"><String>msg_link</String></Pair>
     <Pair key="module_action"><String>http://www.google.com/</String></Pair>
     </Table>
     </Attributes>
     <Items>
     <Item class="type:x-xmb/xmlwebbrowser" key="link" attr="link"/>
     </Items></View>
    By using type:x-xmb/xmlwebbrowser instead of type:x-xmb/module-action it means you don't need to define the module being used, so you can leave out this line:
    Code:
    <Pair key="module_name"><String>webrender_plugin</String></Pair>
    Not important for one link on its own, but if you have hundreds or thousands of links like in webMAN or HAN Toolbox for example, or you have to write the xml on the console like in webmans case, then this way would be quicker/better in theory.

    Nice work. :)

    Would love to see slimmed down xmb for Rebug too.. Hate to see the friends, TV, Singstar and such bloat entries cluttering my XMB.

    It would be cool if we could select these things at installation, tho.. ;)

    Wow nice stuff! I've been working on things & haven't been keeping up with this.
    I love it when @DeViL303 has free time to play :)

    Great Job!,
    imo try deleting all the categories in xmb_ingame.rco except games, psn, friends and users.
    I've done that & probably frees a lot of memory, it might help to avoid crashes while pressing ps button in game.
    I would say delete the game & users category too if possible.
