    Yeah, you can't brick with lines.qrc mods or any dev_flash xmb mods really. Lines.qrc does not load in recovery mode. So it can't effect it.

    It is possible to fully brick with a bad cobra payload on a NAND console. That is the only time I have seen a file on Dev_flash cause a full brick.

    Really...? my experiments with lines.qrc files say otherwise depending on what your doing with them. Also you can cause some really nasty issues...

    BTW the one that nearly bricked my PS3 messed with the recovery menu.... non of the fucntions worked correctly and would crash on every time..... I was very lucky to reverse this... after god knows how many attempts... and it wasn't caused by any other file as the lines.qrc was the only one I was experitmenting with...

    Well I would be interested to see a lines.qrc that causes a full brick if you have an example handy. In my tests I have never seen a dev_flash mod cause a full brick except in the case of dodgy cobra payload on a NAND.

    by any chance do you have a HEN safe or safe in general lines.qrc pack ? or know of any other safe xmb mods ? am looking mostly for waves and their color (if they're in the same file)

    altough something i think would be ideal is, theres a plugin on the psp that loads custom themes from the sd card instead of the flash so that way you would avoid bricking since you arent touching anything from flash
    i think something like this would be good especially on hen, while your are on OFW mode everything is original no brick of freeze, hen mode you have your mods.
    basically anything that loads any mods from the hdd instead of flash along with a failsafe just in case you mess up.
    thats IF its even possible.

    lines.qrc files will work on CFW, HEN, HAN, HFW, OFW when modded or edited. doesn't matter what your running an custom lines file will work.

    What kind of waves, colours, background colours etc you looking for? I don't have packs of them, I just make modded/edited lines.qrc files as and when needed.

    Just thinking about it again, it sounds like your console has some unique issues if we look back. Quite interesting actually, you said before that attempting to write to dev_flash on your console caused it to freeze, you had issues with PUPs unless downloaded from specific region, and now with a dodgy lines.qrc being able to mess up recovery mode. I think your console must be an extreme rare case. To be honest that makes it hard to learn anything from its behaviour if its not repeatable.

    Use this tool, with it you can extract the rco files from the PS3UPDAT.PUP of a OFW (or a CFW)

    There is an unnofficial p3t extractor, i dont remember how well it works but anyway... is going to extract all the files and additionally is going to create an .xml file that works as a index
    You need to use that same .xml file to compile the theme into .p3t format later

    To replace the icons you can do 2 things
    Option 1
    Use p3t extractor to take the icons from another theme, overwrite the icons from your theme with them, and compile it

    Option 2
    Open the .xml file, delete all the lines where appears the icon names, and compile it
    This way the theme doesnt contains icons, and the firmware is going to display the official icons (without nice visual effects using shaders)
    Anyway... if i remember right the icons from a theme never uses nice shaders... this is one of the paybacks for using a theme :crybaby:

    Sorry Guys for Not Updating the Mod since October, But I took a little break of it, to play some games too =P

    The Next Version will jump from 4.2 straight to 4.5 and you have the follow changes:

    - Notification Icon from the PS4 ( The actual one is in a very bad resolution, and i still didn't find which ps4 rco has it)
    - Fixed the Video Volume Menu Freeze While in DVD/BD (Probably caused by the PSVITA background image, due to its size).
    - Top Bar Header in Shutdown Screen to follow the rest of the system.
    - Video/Music Codecs Tags in the PS4 Style.
    - Remove of The Effects in the Install Themes Section.
    - New Effect in the About Game/App Screen and Maybe the Removal of The Currently One;
    - PT-PT Misspelled Debug Options Menu.
    - Translate all Debug Options to All Languages. (Over 200 entries each Language so, 200x20 languages = 4.000 texts entries)
    - Yeap the Keyboard is Still a Thing.
    - Update the File Manager ( I won't translate to other languages because the amount of xmls are insane, but maybe adapt it to Hen).
    - Wave Particles Effects of the CFW in the Hen Version, ( i will need @DeViL303 help, because i used his effects and i'm not used to it and how to make it directly in the lines.qrc).
    - Maybe an option to PS4 Background Music Menu by @DeViL303.
    - Maybe the Removal of Online Music/Video/TV options, because seems like nobody are interested in making pkgs of it and i have no time for it)
    - Background/Brightness Animation Fix

    And since i got a new job, i have almost no time for it, so it will be released by the end of the year or next one =)

    And Please who use the mod, every custom text besides Portuguese and English areTranslated by Google, And I Know Many Texts May be Wrong, Please Report me.

    I already corrected some by myself but nobody reported me so far.
