    cause there is path of app_home and usb in category_game in seg_install_xxx block and seg_delete_xxx

    you must delete :
    <Query class="type:x-xmb/xmlpackagefolder" key="host_provider_host" src="host://localhost/q?path=/app_home/&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />

    from your category_game.xml

    Can you please give me a step by step on how to do this? I've gotten as far as accessing category_game through FTP and needing a repacker such as PUAD GUI, but I'm stuck at the actual repacking part. Thank you.

    the category_game.xml is not encoded, encrypted, or compressed, so just make the edit and replace the file on your flash.

    It's a lot easier to just make a change like that after installing the PUP, just FTP the modified category_game.xml to dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/. Repacking the whole PUP for a simple xml change is not really worth it.

    Make sure you are writing to dev_blind and not dev_flash.

    dev_flash is read only, dev_blind is writable, They are both the same partition though. webman mod, or multiman can mount dev_blind for you.

    you probably haven't mounted dev_blind. it gives you write access. there's an option for it in mm as well as wmm and others.

    If you open Rebug Toolbox, then connect with any FTP client, you will see dev_rebug, this is another alternate version of dev_flash that has write permission.

    BTW If the reason you wanted to create a PUP with that xml mod was to save yourself the bother of applying a load of mods every time you reinstall/update CFW, what I often do is have a custom pkg that I install after the first boot of a freshly hacked console. This custom "dev_blind pkg" installs all my patch files in one go via package manager.

    For more info on these special pkgs read this thread https://www.psx-place.com/threads/c...t-installs-to-any-path-including-flash.23477/
