Added Functionality to XMB
Recently, KrisAbsinthe emailed the PS3HAX network yesterday with a project he has been working on that seems quite interesting. Apparently he has managed to add some more functions to the PS3 XMB, including maybe the reactivation of OtherOS and more.
Here is his Proof Of Concept screenshot below:
Ok I found a way to add some more functions to the XMB. As a POC I edited the PSN XML file swapping the and I left all the functions in their place, just swapped which View id was allowed to use which functions. Here is a screen shot of the new PSN menu, still not able to sign in due to Software Update. However there are quite a few of these I can swap, more to come!
UPDATE: ORIGINALLY I SAID THIS WOULD PROBABLY NOT BRING BACK OTHEROS.
Now I have to move that to the “It Just might” catagory. I realized that I was using an old flash image from before I installed otheros with the EBOOT.BIN swap method. Technically I can add ANY entry I want. and it can point to any file I want. So Maybe I can make it work, DONT GET YOUR HOPES TOO HIGH…But remain cautiously optimistic.
