    @0_obeWAN is back again with another PS3 Extra ISO Release, in other two previous PS3 Extra releases we seen a Coldboot Collection and XMB Wave Collection that allowed for Installation straight from the XMB. Now with PSN Icons Collection (PS3 Extra ISO) simply mount the ISO with your favorite manager / CFW supporting ISO loading of PS3 and with ease view and select from a number of PSN icons already supplied , but want to create your own PSN Icons? 0_obeWAN has you covered there as well, as a Tutorial is also provided in this release. ​

      I'm not sure which firmware did this, but the psn icon used to be part of the icontex.qrc 'til they moved it outside of that. the nvidia 3d plugin for photoshop can't display color or rather it uses color or wavelengths (I believe) for depth. I think that's the reason they moved it into an rco. ;)

      Just love these tools but I think would be great if the default icon/files are present just case people want to restore the originals.

      be careful with the xmb_plugin_normal.rco. it's firmware-specific. using the wrong firmware rco shouldn't soft-brick the system, but it can have adverse effects such as the clock disappearing, since the clock positioning is within the file. ;)

      it depends on which firmware is being used. most rco files r firmware-specific (i.e. this rco is for 4.80). using the wrong rco most likely won't soft-brick the system, but it could cause weird graphical glitches. that's been my experience anyway. sorry...I don't want to sound like a douche for mentioning this, 'cause I did mention the possibility of a soft-brick with ur waves iso as well. yeah, corrupted or large gim files can sometimes mess other things up. this usually results in a flashing white square or rectangle.

      ^^^ great job, my friend. I was thinking about the clock disappearing error, and I think the rco in question may have been the system_plugin.rco, the one with the clock icon itself, instead of the xmb_plugin.normal.rco, the digital portion and box of the clock. I hex compared the earliest (4.75) and latest (4.80) rebug firmware I have decrypted on my laptop - the files were identical - so what I said may not be an issue at all.

      I'm thinking now to others possibilities with this PS3 ISO batch
      But I'm failed with psn_package_npdrm.exe
      Is there a way to batch the "Make PKG..." menu option in PS3tools from @aldostools
      @echo off
      mode con cols=65 lines=26
      color 0b
      I mean simply make a package from desired folder (the folder ever contains all required files, no need to create PARAM.SFO...)
      If you know where I can found informations on psn_package_npdrm.exe, parameters options...
      Thanks in advance

      This code seems to work for me.
      @echo off
      mode con cols=65 lines=26
      color 0b
      echo ContentID = EP0001-PS3EXTISO_00-0000000000000000>package.conf
      echo Klicensee = 000000000000000000000000000000000000>>package.conf
      echo PackageVersion = 99.99>>package.conf
      echo DRMType = Free>>package.conf
      echo ContentType = GameExec>>package.conf
      psn_package_npdrm.exe -n package.conf PS3EXTISO
      ren EP0001-PS3EXTISO_00-0000000000000000.pkg DATA000.PKG
      if exist package.conf del package.conf
      Needs more tests... But it means easy way and multiple possibles
      - No more need PSDK3v2
      - Just repack existing package templates exemples with coldboots, waves, games mods, there are lots of possibles...

      it lacks in game icons too
    12. pinky
      that should be in the xmb_ingame.rco. the psn icon supposedly was a part of the icontex.qrc until it was dropped into an rco file many firmwares ago. I remember reading about that, but I haven't checked that far back in the icontex.qrc files. the icontex.qrc will be all the icons on the xmb (outside of a game) minus the psn icon. all those icons r replicated in the xmb_ingame.rco, since u don't see the wave. the wave is meant to give the icons a 3d effect outside of a game. however, using the nvidia plugin to create those 3d icons meant that the icons would look greyish white. I have a tutorial on this. :-p
