    Here is a method to remove the annoying SingStar XMB Icon :)

    1.Download and Install HAN Toolbox 3.0
    2. Click on HAN Toolbox
    3. Click on File Explorer
    4. Go into /dev_hdd0/tmp/explore/xil2/game/*/
    5. In the * folder hover over the c folder and press triangle on it
    6. Select Unlink (Folder)
    7. Reboot your PS3

    NOTE: The * is a country code folder. The Name of it depends on the location that your PSN
    Account is. For example my PSN Account is set to Germany, so the * is named "de".
    If your PSN Account is set to Great Britain the folder name would be "gb".

    FYI
    I researched this some time ago to include the icon removal feature in webMAN-MOD, the best way I found to remove the Singstar icon isn't to delete the folder because Singstar will eventually be restored automatically.
    To remove the icon & ensure it won't be restored, you should replace the NSXWSV-PN.P3.##-XMB_COLUMN_GAME.xml file (## should be replaced by the country code) with a blank xml file with read-only permissions. It can be easily be done using the ps3xploit ROP framework file copy function & it can be added to the HAN Toolbox or whatever...

    To restore Singstar, all you need to do is remove that file and/or the folder.

    For reference, the resulting code from my research on Singstar icon removal was tweaked by Aldo & included in singstar.h in the wMM project.

    Thanks for the Info.
    Creating an .xml file and setting it to read-only is actually a very convenient way.

    Great tips. If we could remove Netflix, Spotify and Viaplay among others, it would be even better.. ;)

    Spotify can be easily removed in the category_music.xml by removing this query
    Code:
    <Query
     class="type:x-xmb/folder-pixmap"
     key="gameDir"
     attr="gameDir"
     src="xil://localhost/list?t=music"
     />
    The others in TV are a little trickier, as if you remove the TV version of that query you will lose all apps not just the ones you don't use. There is a way that would involve editing your own xil xml to only have the apps you wanted, and then making that read only, but its tricky.

    Yes of course, it's possible to remove all the icons installed automatically through the XIL system.
    It might even be possible to patch the XIL process to disable it. It requires some investigation.

    There is a way to "blacklist" contents by his ID by adding at the end of the src=... &query &title etc...
    But this im saying is something generic, it depends of which src=HERE function you use. I dont remember if is available to be used with src=xil

    Well, I don't use any of the music/TV apps... I use the play games on my PS3 and that's it.. well, aside from the tinkering of course. ;)

    Edit: Just got a vision of a barebone cfw with an AIO installer running at first boot.. Now, that would be something.. imagine being able to cherry pick what you want to have on your PS3... ;)

    Use the file explorer in HAN Toolbox, browse to the file, then press triangle and select unlink.
