About the XMB™ (XrossMediaBar) menu

The background color on the XMB changes color depending on the current month. On a PSP with firmware 2. On a PSP with firmware 3. On a PSP with at least system software 4. These two options are the ability to change between the new "waves" effect and the classic "wavy lines". Users with system software version 3. Subsequently, Sony released software which allows users to create their own themes for the PlayStation Portable. The dynamic lines on the background are more condensed into a 'ribbon' rather than the PSP's large waves, unselected icons shrink slightly and every selectable background color has been made a shade darker.

The PS3 includes the following particular abilities: It also has compatibility for a USB keyboard and mouse and a full web browser supporting downloading of multiple file types. The Friends menu allows email with emoticons and attached picture features and video chat which requires an optional webcam although the PlayStation Eye and the EyeToy are official webcams, most USB webcams will work.

Also, the PlayStation 3 adds the ability to multitask in ways such as listening to stored audio files while surfing the web or looking at pictures. The feature was added to the PlayStation 3 on July 2, via system update 2. Users who had not already downloaded the update were only able to download the previous version, 2. All of these issues were addressed in the 2. Prior to the update, basic forms of XMB friends lists could be found in some modern August or newer PS3 games including; Resistance: Fall of Man Since the 1.

Rock Band , and software such as Folding home 1. These partial functions of XMB friends lists and custom soundtracks have been reserved for the developer to implement. The XMB's default background color changes depending on the current month of the year, and it changes brightness depending on the time of day.

Major color changes occur on the three days before the 15th and 24th of each month, while the color gradually changes between those dates. System software version 1. The same update also added extra font choices, and the ability to use custom themes that change the icons, wallpaper, color, font, and, in some cases, the sound effects.

With the release of firmware 3. Themes can be created by Sony's official PlayStation 3 theme creator software or by theme compilers from third-party developers. PlayStation 3 themes are able to store images and sounds in order for users to customize their system's XMB. Themes can be shared via the internet and can be downloaded directly to the PS3 system via the PS3's web browser. A Dynamic Themes feature was added in software version 3.

These themes may feature animated backgrounds which change throughout the day or respond to user input. Q-Games Ltd , a small development company based in Kyoto , Japan , developed the graphics technology behind the XMB, its stylized background, and the built-in music visualizers. Folding home has now been integrated into Life with PlayStation , which has been discontinued as of November Analogue channels, unlike digital channels, do not display channel information on the XMB.

Generally, the XMB requires 8 different options on a controller. A 4-way directional pad is used to choose categories using the left and right directions as well as highlighting options or actions within these categories using the up and down directions. Two additional buttons are required to select items which are highlighted, as well as to return to the previous "level" of menus Usually and although usually pressing the left directional button will bring the XMB back to the previous menu and using the start button to start software.

You can install this application on a ps3 running a custom firmware. The application works with Google Drive. You will need a Google account to use it. Bi-Directional Sync is possible. The application will sync your saves to the cloud and will download them to your hard drive.

Resume support is present and you can quit the application any time you want. The app will pick up from where it left off. Resumable uploads and partial responses are supported. Save Difference and update will only sync data that has changed to cut bandwidth usage.

There were a lot of requests for this feature and version 1. Planned Features for next releases: Users can select the game-saves they want to sync to the cloud. This also requires a GUI for the user to select which saves he needs transferred.

Most likely a Dual panel layout. Multiple Playstation 3 units support per account. A user may sign into a PS3-Cloud-Drive account and download saves from another ps3. This feature is highly dependent on selective sync.

Authentication Authentication is a one time process and you do not need to repeat it unless you delete the app or wipe your ps3s hard drive. Install it on your PS3. This app has been tested on various firmwares up to 4. Run the app and it will generate a code for you. It will also prompt you to visit http: You must be signed into a Google account for verification. The PS3 will automatically detect the authentication as soon as you finish registration. Once the authentication completes, the application will start building data and syncing game-saves to the cloud How to use: General Usage Every time you run the application, it will detect and sync changes to the cloud automatically.

But let the application finish the current transfer. It does not require any of your personal information. None of your personal data from the ps3 running the app, apart from game-saves, is transferred to the cloud. You may use a proxy application to sniff the data. I honestly do not know how to do that yet. If you know how, please get in touch.

Do saves from the currently logged in user get uploaded or all users on my ps3? The app syncs saves for all user profiles present on the internal HDD. Can I give custom paths to the app to sync? Not right now because I do not plan to make it anything else apart from a gamesave sync utility.

I might add a custom path feature later. The application is designed to let the user decide what gets synced. See next question for more details.

It will detect the missing save and automatically download it again. Install the app again on your PS3. Once authentication is done, it will start downloading all the saves to your hard drive. Does this app resign saves? Besides resigning saves is a touchy matter.

You can use the same Google drive account to sync two ps3s. However, you must understand that the application has no way to differentiate the two Playstation units apart from the Gmail address used to register the application.

And if I delete the corrupt save, the application keeps downloading the corrupt save. By default the app thinks of the last save revision as the one that gets synced. However, if this scenario happens, you can go to Google Drive yourself and delete the last revision and pin the revision that is not corrupt. You may then download the save yourself or run the application again to download the correct revision.

This is also a planned feature, where a user can select which revision he wants to download. See question for more details. My revisions got purged on Google Drive? Google Drive has a default policy of purging older revisions after 30 days. This is enough time for you to recover any data. Read the linked article on how to recover a revision or mark it as pinned, such that it never gets purged. This may be a future feature in the options but for now because every revision takes the same amount of space the original file does, this is not enabled.

The application data got corrupted due to a malfunction or the PS3 shutdown abnormally power failure etc. How do I recover application data? You can delete the corrupted data and restore the backup. The backup might not be recent but it should still save you a lot of hassle. Is this app going to be open source? Can I cancel my PS Plus subscription now?

Oh no, PS Plus is so on another level. This is just one of its features. Can you make this app stealth like multiman? I currently do not know how to do that. But may be down the road. If you know how to, drop me a message. Are you associated with Sony, Google or the PlayStation brand? This is only a visual glitch and your save is perfectly fine.

The PS3 keeps a database of everything and the app currently cannot update that database directly as it resides in the flash. However, as a temporary solution, you can make the save appear in the XMB by playing the game for that game-save and overwrite the save once either with autosaving or manual save.

You can also rebuild the database from the recovery menu as well. Aug 17, Downloads: Web portal for PlayStation 3 with links to Homebrew, managers, mods, Once the packages downloaded it appears as a bubble to install in Games category Update Webman-MOD in the last current version 1.

That's all, but remember that if you want to change game or run ANY homebrew. A new homebrew blocker is included in the psnpatch plugin - in the plugin only.

It is enabled by default. If you don't want to use it, go into psnpatch xmb application, toolbox menu, and disable it there. The homebrew blocker blocks home brew excution when CFW Syscalls are disabled. Execution will be locked until the next reboot. The homebrew blocker runs in cobra, near-cobra mamba and non-cobra systems. This implementation is compatible with eventually future cobra updates for core homebrew blockers. Supports old, present and future firmware versions.

When cobra gets updated with its own blocker, psnpatch will detect and use it. Carefully read instructions to properly understand how it works. More than 1 year october since the last change.

If you want to be sure psnpatch works in your system: Put it in the root of a usb stick and place it in the rightmost ps3 usb port. This will allow you to remove cfw syscalls and delete execution history. Removing syscall will simulate a official firmware version improving protection level against PSN bans.

Note that after doing this, some home-brew programs like multiMAN will fail to execute. After CFW is disabled you can play the mounted game backup but cannot mount another one. This "cfw disabling" will only be active until next ps3 reboot.

Some few games may fail starting when mounted by a backup manager after cfw is disabled - this can be solved by mounting those games in ISO format. Psnpatch uses several complimentary algorithms to improve cfw disabling success rate.

If a mounted game in cobra gives black screen after disabling cfw, try mounting as ISO. It cannot be any number: Don't try to generate an ID by yourself!!! Spoof idps and psid, disable cfw syscalls and delete execution history. You can even start psnpatch and keep X pressed until you ear the beep, bypassing the user interface and back to XMB!

An on-scree message will report the success and mode used for it. No need to call PSNPatch application! L1 - a log will display the list of processed games by file type. It is advisable not to process more than 20 files at the same time if you sign more, they may not appear in the log. PSNpatch can unlock game demos of C00 type. For each unlocked game there will be created a new EDAT. Even with spoofed IDPS. There are still many users with 4.

O 3 seconds, 1 beep, the cfw is disabled! If you get the usual psnpatch welcome message when trying to enable or disable "auto mode", the process had failed.

You should reboot and try again! This will protect from running homebrew when connected to the PSN thus avoiding being easily detected!

Error bad installation will be reported when trying to execute a locked homebrew. After homebrew is blocked, it will be automatically unlocked at the next reboot.

PSNPatch Interceptor was initially made for a seamless integration with webman-mod. Usually PSNPatch beeps once to flag that cfw was disabled.

When in interceptor mode, it will NOT beep to avoid confusion with other tools. But it should still display a message in the upper right screen conner, informing about that has done the proper job.

Sony added some checks to syscall in fw 4. No cobra fw support and no plans to add support it in the future Anyway, i'm not really interested in updating psnope anymore and if you want to play online with cfw i recommend to: PSN can check in theory if idps belongs to console, syscall table matches fw version, syscall table is not ofw, fw allows installing debug pkgs with broken signature, etc.

No idea if they actually do these checks, but they gather lots of checksums from your console each time you log into PSN. I want to activate PSN content. How to get started? Do i need the "aa" account to make it work? How can i enable changing my idps?

Where does it look for config. It looks for config. I spoofed my idps and and activated some content. Why doesn't it work? Because your idps is part of the decryption algo. Its a decrypted ".
