    The abilities for PS3xploit (v3) HAN continues to progress, this time around a simple XMB Mod that adds a new function into the XMB's "User" Category. As seen in the image included a new entry of "Restart System" has been added and when you select the icon it will restart the PS3 without a Conformation. Making a Restart that much faster and easier from the XMB. A long-time XMB MOD from CFW is now brought to PS3 HAN user's,



    • User Category Mod - Reboot and Instant Shutdown
      (For use with PS3 HAN 4.81/4.82 OFW)

      Here is a small XMB mod that changes how the "Turn Off System" icon in the user category works and adds a "Restart System" icon to the top of the User category. This is a full multi language mod with icons and text added to the rco.​

      In this mod, when you select "Turn Off System" you do not get asked for confirmation, its much nicer imo, in all my years using PS3 I do not think I have ever hit that by mistake :) Also added a link to HAN reboot auto running Xploit page.

      Thanks to @esc0rtd3w for discovering the way to call the power off plugin instantly, and thanks to Team Ps3Xploit for the Reboot Xploit and all the rest.​

    • Installation:
      There are a few steps to this and it involves writing files to flash using Team Xploits file injector webpages, if you do not know how to use them do not continue with installing this mod. I am not going to explain every little thing about those, you are expected to have a basic understanding of the tools if you are doing mods like this to flash, if not do some research into the latest PS3Xploit releases first.​

      There are 3 files, put them on USB and copy them to flash, you will need to select the correct file names from the dropdown lists, and choose the USB port etc.

      Visit this page on your PS3 for loading the explore_plugin_full.rco =

      Visit this page on your PS3 for loading the 2 category_user xmls =

      You can of course use HAN Toolbox file injector section too, same thing.​

      Note: There is a bug, these items do not work from the ingame XMB, and will have spinning icons, I will not be trying to fix this, so take it or leave it. Use at your own risk, only tested on slim.

      is installing this safe on 4.82 OFW?
    4. DeViL303
      Yes its safe enough, something can always go wrong anytime you write a file to dev_flash, a power cut for example, but worst case you would need to reinstall 4.82 and then reinstall the HAN files. You cant fully brick from a dev_flash mod afaik except on a phat NAND maybe.
    5. Big_Boss
      So if nothing happens while I write the files I'll be fine?
    6. DeViL303

      Whatever you do is at your own risk of course. If your PS3 explodes don't blame me. :) Anything can happen, maybe your HDD is about to die, and it just dies after you install this so you think it is this etc. Its up to you, If you are not comfortable writing files to flash and risking having to possible reinstall FW+HAN then don't use it.
    7. Big_Boss
      I'm using an USB thumb drive to install these files, but thanks for responding.
    8. DeViL303
      I was not saying this would damage your hdd, it wont damage your usb either :D
    9. esc0rtd3w

      From testing it seems the module action line is ignored when the poweroff plugin is called, you can edit it to anything, or remove the line completely and it still acts the same.

      Just tried that too.

      Sorry but these files still require an active internet connection, you could not directly inject the modified xai_plugin.sprx plugin and already in use on PlayStation 3?
    15. DeViL303
      No, unfortunately not. well on CFW of course we can and do use xai, but no modified sprx on OFW as we cant sign them. So for the reboot this uses web Xploits which is all we have on OFW.

      The shutdown will work offline of course as that is just a different way of calling the OFW plugin.

      I tried to call a dialog screen too when making my pro mod, no sucess too =(

      If one day I want to return the PS3 to normal without this mod xmb, would I need to install OFW again or have a backup of the original files?
