    They could apply this patch with hen, but no point as it wont be there at boot time which is when you need it.


    The only thing HEN users can gain from this is by using the double // in xml mods if they are on flash, like this. I dont know of any that could use that currently to add some brick resistance, maybe my Homebrew folder mod if i was to release it for 4.85.


    Original xml path on flash:

    Brick resistant xml path on flash:

    This is tested. Kind of interesting that it works in xml too but I guess that is to be expected. @sandungas

    What im going to say is just speculation... but i think when you use the double // in a path the first / is taken as a indicator of a "subdirectory" and after it should be located the name of the directory, but the next character is another / and this is prohibited to use in directory names or file names... so at that point something weird happens (its magic)

    i applied the patch and deleted some xml to test it, and restarting the system is okay, but after shutting it down, it loads the xmb and kicks to recovery.

    EDIT

    I never could proper edit a sprx .

    I right clicked on the sprx / self tools / extract efl

    so i hexed the prx and them righ click/ self tools / resign Eboot/Elf

    is it right?

    so it gave me a sprx again

    Edit 2:

    Putting them back worked good

    Can you check my explore_plugin?

    Maybe you have some custom xmls that use the full path path "dev_flash" and not "%flash"? Not sure. Shutting down and then restarting is the same thing as rebooting for these purposes, So something else must have changed. The place where you edited the path looks ok.
