Since the recent advancement in COBRA CFW (payload) thanks to one of deank additions that made playing games from a backup disc possible saving some HDD space for those wanting to keep your originals in good standing but may not have the space to hold your collection. It was only a matter of time before we started see some tools that would be designed with this new feature in mind and long time friend of psx-place developer psykosis has released Mr. Burns. This simple app is based on makeps3iso by developer estwald (Iris Manager's dev aka Hermes), the toll will convert a folder format (JB folder) to an ISO file and then will call imgburn to then burn your ISO to a disc and playable on Cobra 7.52 +.
- UPDATE (Mr.Burns) v0.2 / 0.3
- Update (Smither's Tool) Batch Conversion
- Original Release: Mr Burns
- NEW Mr Smithers With Patches!!
- Mr Smithers updated 3/18/17
- Merged Convert and Burn Buttons
- Cosmetic, added icons, systray icon.
- updated the page to show new features.
- I'll probably be working on batch today
If you like mr burns, you might like smithers too!
- Batch conversion
- custom destination.
- Burning not implemented as of yet, but will be once I finish the back end for it.
Since the best combo currently to use is supposed to be estwalds latest makeps3iso (link provided by sandugas) and imageburn. I put together this small app to make it a little easier...
Conducted Test on:
- Very small app, just a front end for makeps3iso
- can add more features at a later time.
- Currently separated the convert/burn process until a bug is worked out.
- Merged convert/burn process in 0.2
- Added icons, sounds to 0.3
- Added drag and drop folders to 0.3
- Added minor error correction (checks for ps3_game folder)
- Sounds are located in appfolder\tools\sounds and can be deleted without issue
- It is required to have imgburn installed on default location (will work with 32 or 64 bit locations)
- Now shows source directory on window as of 0.3
- On Rebug 4.81.2 w/ cobra 7.52 via 2.0.13 toolbox
Update to the latest Mr. Smithers!!!
I removed the deploy extension as suggested
I added an additional form "Patches" that can do basically md5 right now, but more later
I added an option to use genps3iso if you choose to instead of makeps3iso
I changed how the iso files are named, to exactly as the folder is named
I cleaned up a bunch of code not being used (msgbox type debug stuff)
Drag and drop functionality added for both folder and iso
I may merge "Patches" into "Mr. Smithers application at some point soon to reduce size
More information available from github as well
now with "patches", genps3iso 2.0 option, and more!
Added new features, and improved interface a little. removed unused code.

The developer has alot of videos on other intresting subjects in his diverse YouTube channel >>> (Bits and More) <<< many very informative video's..Continue reading
Advanced Power Options (v1.10) Released: A XMB MOD for all CFW & HENA handy XMB (main menu) modification for the PlayStation 3 that is now compatible with either CFW (Custom FirmWare) or HEN (Homebrew ENabler) has been updated to v1.10 with a new name as well. This project has seen contributions from various developer's that include @DeViL303, @kozarovv, @mysis @Joonie and @lmn7 and collectively have created Advance Power Options (v1.10). This sleek mod allows for additional Power Options to be displayed and executed with ease from the comfort of the XMB. The new inclusions for your XMB will include a fast Shut Down (no conformation is asked), A Soft Reboot (a faster reboot, doesn't completely shutdown system) or a Hard Reboot (which shuts down slower, as it's a complete system restart). Plus, the mod provides a few additional Advanced Options and these include the ability to Reboot in Recovery Mode (which can be a handy feature, as the official method from Sony involves a process of holding the power button down on your console for awhile), If you desire even faster access to a few functions within the Recovery Mode the devs have you covered here as well as there is options to Rebuild Database or Check the File-System on reboot by selection those included options on the XMB as well. For HEN user's that about sums up things, but CFW user's you have one more additional function which is optional but Also included is an optional pkg to Boot into OtherOS. Overall, this is a great collection of work and a superb modification for your PS3's XMB to add new functionality. View a preview of this mod before installing it, by checking out the developer's YouTube video included below (video coverage is of v1.04) to get an idea of what this mod is all about for CFW and now HEN user's also.

PCSX-R (PS4 Port) - PlayStation (PS1 on PS4) Emulator by ZnullptrThis news is a bit late but wanted to get everyone caught up on this project for the PlayStation 4 as Developer Znullptr (David Miller) has recently developed a new emulator port for exploited PS4 console (currently 5.05 being the latest exploitable firmware in public) called PCSX-R which as you may of guessed is a PlayStation 1 emulator. The developer has said he ceased emulation development (source code release is planned) on the PS4 but we have seen a few tweets (1, 2) that could suggest he is still working on a few things (like a mednafen port that maybe is a better options for PS1 gameplay(?) ) but that remains to be seen. This PS1 emulator port seems to be working good enough to play many titles (some issue's are outlined below in the notes by markus95). PS4 gameplay footage can viewed in the videos provided below. So far we have seen this emulation developer soft release several PoC emulators for the PS4 that have included Yabause (A Sega Saturn Emulator w/ speed issue's) / Reicast (DreamCast w/ speed issue's) & ,mGBA (GameBoy Advance). Since this is an early concept and build you have to manually swap your roms for a game you want to play, details about the process can be seen below courtesy of @Markus95 .Continue reading
