    Power Options for all CFW.

    Should work universally on all CFW.

    Before anyone asks, no it wont work on HAN OFW.



    Adds options for rebooting, rebuilding database etc. Also installs a Reload XMB pkg and Boot otherOS pkg to dev_hdd0/packages/, install those if you want those features on the menu.

    Also this calls the poweroff plugin in a different way, so it does not ask for confirmation (thanks esc0rtd3w for the tip)

    Optional: After installing this, you will find a new Reload XMB package in your package manager, install that if you want the reload XMB icon to show inside the power options menu at the top.

    Optional: After installing this you will find a Boot OtherOS pkg in your package manager, install that if you want that to show at the bottom of the Advanced power options menu.

    Thanks to Mysis fro the xai plugin, @kozarovv for the installer and reload xmb app, and thanks to @Bobby_Downgrades for the original idea.


    DOWNLOAD v1.01 Original layout
    DOWNLOAD v1.02 Aldostools layout (turn off icon outside of the menu, confirmation on)
    DOWNLOAD v1.03 Sandungas layout (turn off icon as default inside menu)
    DOWNLOAD v1.04 DeViL303 layout (See video)

    I think the options would be better ordered by frequency, the most frequent used is "turn off system" so it should go at top, this way when you want to turn off system you only need to "click" several times in it (brainless, no need to read the options)

    1)turn off system
    2)hard reboot
    3)soft reboot
    4)reload xmb
    5)advanced options

    I thought about that, but they are in the order of frequency for me. I never really turn off from that menu, almost always hold the PS button as its quicker.

    I could make another version though.

    I think most users probably reboot more than shutdown? So many things require a reboot/XMB reload. Adding 1 game for example.

    IMO I like the current order, except the option "Turn Off System", that I'd prefer to have it outside (at the same level of the submenu).
    I know that would break the concept "Power Options". It could be changed to "Restart Options"

    I understand that, dont forget though, this is calling the official poweroff plugin directly, so before you would have had to confirm shutdown, this way there is no confirmation, Entering the menu is confirmation enough that you want to do something so i see no need for it. So really its still 2 press's of X away (plus a couple of down press's i know).

    I might release some variations of it, I would like to see if the boot other OS package can be fixed or turned into a file operation for xai. Then I might release an update.

    You could just remove the option 'power off system' from the sub-menu, and keep in the XML the original power off that has the confirmation ;)

    Well, i think removing the confirmation is a good idea regardless of menu placement, when is the last time anyone hit off that by mistake really? and if it did happen once in a blue moon its not a big deal. what do you think? this is not a mod for kids, it will be more advanced users installing something like this in the first place.

    I might include the impose rco mod with the ps3 image (from DECR .090) in next update. I suppose that will cause panic in the streets though as its not OFW feature :) it only adds about 4kb to rco and i think its cool, what do you think?

    DeViL303 updated CFW Power Options with a new update entry:

    CFW Power Options v1.01

    Small bug with the reload XMB app, had wrong content ID in the xml for the one included.

    The one included uses RELOADXM1 and category HM. Fixed now.


    P.S. I am claiming category HM for my mods, Sony have not used it in years, no one else has, so why not :)

    I will put out an update with turn off icon at the top level soon, so ignore that. I had already updated it, and it was awaiting approval.

    Thanks for offer. But Im not sure if i want to get into that tbh. it requires main rco changing which makes it firmware specific, its a nightmare, every little change then requires 20 people to provide translations, then people cant agree on translations etc.

    If you want to translate a version for your own use just edit the xml, or release a translated version in your language if you want to.

    CFW Power Options v1.04

    This is the final layout, a compromise.



    Power Options:
    • Reload XMB (Optional package built in, install to add)
    • Shut Down (Default option if no reload pkg installed, no confirmation)
    • Soft Reboot
    • Hard Reboot
    • Advanced Options
    • >> Reboot into a Database Rebuild
    • >> Reboot into a Filesystem Check
    • >> Reboot into Recovery Mode
    • >> Boot into OtherOS (Optional package built in, install to add)
    Thanks to Joonie for the Boot into OtherOS package

    Read the rest of this update entry...


    With this one, if you dont have the reload pkg installed, then Turn off is default, its still 2 press' of X to shutdown like normal , so best of all worlds really. :)

    If you prefer other layouts see v1.01, v1.02, v1.03.

    DOWNLOAD v1.01 Original layout
    DOWNLOAD v1.02 Aldostools layout (turn off icon outside of the menu, confirmation on)
    DOWNLOAD v1.03 Sandungas layout (turn off icon as default inside menu)
    DOWNLOAD v1.04 DeViL303 layout (See images attached and video)

    Reload XMB needs to be on the top or bottom really, as it has no info line, so looks out of place otherwise.

    I think Reload XMB will be the most used option, For me, i definitely need to do that a lot more than shutting down.

    It's a shame because a very nice gadget would be nice to have translations into all console languages of all options, even otheros and reloadxmb entries.
    It could also be useful in the advanced option for rebug / starbuged to enable and disable cobra
    Code:
            <Table key="cobra_mode">
                    <Pair key="icon"><String>/dev_flash/vsh/resource/icons/cobra.png</String></Pair>
                    <Pair key="title"><String>On/Off</String></Pair>
                    <Pair key="module_name"><String>xai_plugin</String></Pair>
                    <Pair key="module_action"><String>cobra_mode</String></Pair>
                    <Pair key="ingame"><String>disable</String></Pair>
                    <Pair key="bar_action"><String>none</String></Pair>
                    <Pair key="lbl_half"><String>1</String></Pair>
    .
    .
    .
    <Item class="type:x-xmb/module-action"    key="cobra_mode"        attr="cobra_mode"/>

    Well, Maybe if Sony stop releasing updates, and this gets refined some more, so its "Final" , then we could think about it. If RCO could be universal (apart from red and blue icons for rebug and standard cfw)

    If you wanted to start a multi language version project now, and start collecting translations, I will help you with it. But i am already moving on to think about the next project. :)

    P.S I like the idea of the "Reboot and Toggle Cobra" options, Nice one. That will be in v1.05, although that will make it Rebug specific, which i dont want to do, i can try to come up with a universal command for xai.

    I really liked this project, I would not have to use xai.xml and custom non-matching options for network categories. All "ps3 restarting" options and switching some things will be in power option, its beter place for this features.
