      Missed our PSX-Place one :) .. @pinky you have that one somewhere still ?
    4. pinky
      yes, I do. the credit goes to @ermak86 , who made the original, though. I just made the coldboot smaller by removing his watermark. I think his moved either up to down or left to right. I modified the script to go from left to right, up to down, or forward to back.

      left to right:

      up to down:

      forward to back:

      If some one is interesting, I can share my files /sources/ explanations to create your own disc
      Easy to create, just need
      - Easy Static Raf Converter v1.0a.exe
      - PS3tools from Aldostools
      Photoshop or a 1920x1080 PNG picture (with transparency)

      Let me know

      Easy Static Raf Converter v1.0a is very useful

      easy static faf converter doesnt do fade in/out effect like original ps3 coldboot?
    9. pinky
      afaik, it doesn't. fade-in/out is impossible with a colored coldboot anyway. colored coldboots r basically theme files. in fact, u can decompile a colored coldboot with p3t theme extractor. if u do try to do fade-in/out on a colored coldboot, the coldboot will come out as a garbled mess. I've tested it before. it won't soft-brick the system, but the coldboot will look really messed up.
    10. psydefx
      i dont want to create a colored one, i want to make the old spiderman font ps3 logo to coldboot
    11. pinky
      u could hex in the coldboot. my tutorials have the offsets for the coldboot images which r the same for all fade-in/out coldboots.

      edit: ...or I could do it for u. u'd need to make the image 700x350 with a solid black background. the text or image must be white or grey as well. colored coldboots do the same thing, because the alpha is what determines which parts of the image display.

      This ISO thing is good and I like some of the stuff on here..may have to borrow some ;)

      ... but isn't this like @bitsbubba 1.5 Installer thingy that changes the boots, sounds and waves right from the XMB?

      I put up a tut about making your own colored coldboot and sounds back in DEC. Links to the files and other vids are in the description

      I made it really simple, I just put a folder called "1-Coldboots, waves and sounds" in dev_hdd0 root. that folder has 3 subfolders:


      Using multiman just enable dev blind and change whatever you want, via its file manager, then disable write to dev blind and reboot using multiman's system restart... less than a minute you can change everything you want plus your files will always be in your ps and take up very little space. Right now mine with a bunch of sounds, waves and boots is only 50mb!

      or even FASTER ...go into rebug toolbox and using FTP make the changes via dev_rebug and reboot.

      EVEN BETTER: I have all 3 of those folders mentioned above, in my phones and tablet's sd cards, using ANDftp for android while in the rebug toolbox I can change the boots/sounds/waves via my phone (no need for a pc at all) and do a full reboot from rebug toolbox option...and bam ...done in like 30 seconds :)

      hopefully some people might find this useful. Plus these methods allows you to obviously delete and or add anything you want to the 3 folders as you see fit.

      Nice iso, i have also downloaded the tutorial one with source, making one for myself but decided also to include P3T themes but i have a problem if someone could help.

      I hadded the hydrid flag T correctly on SFB file, then created the PS3_CONTENT/THEMEDIR/D000/DATA000.P3T

      Also created the param.sfo inside THEMEDIR, but the iso only show the theme inside D000 folder, the other ones from D001 to D009 doesn't show up, what am i doing wrong?

      UPDATE: i think i find out what im doing wrong, devwiki is your friend lol. From the info that i read themes aren't all named DATA000.P3T, thats only on the first folder D000, for example on folder D001 the theme as to be named DATA001.P3T, is it this?
