PS3 developer @aldostools drops off a handy tool for CFW user's who enjoy the many benefits from the webMAN MOD plugin. webMAN URL Launcher Tool allows you to map a webMAN web shortcut or even mount various games with the included customize-able template PKG. For those who are familiar with Retro XMB , basically you can create Game Shortcuts (outside of My Games Folder (aka webMAN Games Folder) ) for PS3 /PS2 /PS1 /PSP/ /BD / DVD / ect.. Or you want a quick shortcut on the XMB for various webMAN Web Shortcuts like disable system sycalls, rebuild database, Restart PS3 or the many other shortcuts we have grown to love in webMAN MOD.

- Official Release Quote via Aldostools
- Additional: webMAN MOD -- Web Commands
UPDATE:: JUNE 5:
I have updated the source code and template. It now uses the hdd0/tmp/wm_request file to mount the games.
The file is polled by webman every few seconds and deleted after it's processed. So multiple apps can use the same interface.
If "Auto-Play" is enabled on /setup.ps3 or if the [auto] tag is included in the file name, the game will be launched after return to XMB.
(Some times the timing is bad, and the disc icon will get only the focus. In that case you will only have to press X to start the game)
NOTE: It only work with webMAN builds compiled with WM_REQUEST flag. e.g. webMAN MOD Lite or vanilla *WILL NOT* work.
New src + template pkg: http://aldostools.org/temp/test/launcher_src.7z
Another use could be the creation of a custom AUTOBOOT.ISO with a PS3_EXTRA menu with your favorite games, like LaunchPad
This tool can be handy for some users that need to add an icon to XMB that mount a game or execute some custom command via webMAN.
The EBOOT basically reads a wm_request file stored in USRDIR and sends the command to webMAN which will process it and return to XMB.
The PKG is a *template* that is intended to be customized before install it. So you'll need to edit the file wm_request, PARAM.SFO (title id & title) and maybe the ICON0.PNG.
The wm_request file should have the path of the file to be mounted or the webMAN command.
Examples (use only 1 line):
- /dev_usb000/GAMES/My JB game
- /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/My Game.iso
- /dev_hdd0/BDISO/My Movie.iso
- /dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp/My Game.ntfs[PS3ISO]
- /mount_ps3/net0/PS3ISO/My Game.iso
Additional Web Commands can be viewed in the PSX-Place webMAN MOD forum:

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
