    Hello,

    I'd like to propose a small update to the v2.3.1 PS3HEN plugin, so the "auto update check" on boot can be easily disabled by users.

    I was checking @Joonie 's github repo, and I think that a simple way to achieve this option could be adding a couple of lines in the "henplugin_thread" method:
    We simply check if a file named "HENupdatecheck.off" exists on /dev_hdd0 , and if that's the case we just skip the rest of the method and go to the end.

    Then if any user wants to disable the auto update check on boot, they just create the dummy file on their HDD and that's all. I know it's not a fancy setting option through the XMB but I think it's quick, simple, and any user can actually create that file if they need to disable the auto update.

    Here's my sample code snippet:

    https://github.com/Joonie86/PS3HEN/...adfe655c3c8e8876acc0cd5/henplugin/main.c#L396

    static void henplugin_thread(__attribute__((unused)) uint64_t arg)

    Code:
       
        enable_ingame_screenshot();
        reload_xmb();
        CellFsStat stat;
    // ... previous code ...
    
        
        if(cellFsStat("/dev_hdd0/HENupdatecheck.off",&stat)==0)
        { goto done; }
    
    
    // ... code continues ...
    if(cellFsStat("/dev_usb000/HEN_UPD.pkg",&stat)==0)
    {
    memset(pkg_path,0,256);
    
    thanks again to the PS3xploit team for their work on HEN! :)
    cheers

    It's possible to change the update server URL yourself in the embedded SPRX in the PS3HEN.BIN file. You can also disable the check completely but it breaks other stuff AFAIK. I like the concept of the auto updater but agree with you, it should be optional.

    oh, I wasn't sure if such change would break something else down the line, but at least I wanted to suggest the feature for a future version/update.

    I don't mind the update check, but I assume it would also boot faster if the code skips it.

    I think this is good solution too, an option could easily be added to HFW tools to create/copy/remove the flag in the correct location.

    managing the "HENupdatecheck" file from the XMB would be amazing, and really easy for any user! :encouragement:

    I've created a simple pull request on the PS3HEN Github repo to propose the change, so they can review it for a future version:

    cheers!
