    Sorry its not working enough to be worth releasing to you, at the moment its hanging when it gets to 100% downloaded, I suppose the ps3 doesnt know what to do with a mkv yet, downloading a mkv to internal tempory folder is one thing, getting ps3 to recognise it as a video that needs to be stored with other videos is another days work, and then of course the ps3 cant read mkv files so for now it is useless, it was just an example of the type of mods i would like to see in the new custom firmwares being released. Rebug are the only ones actually adding new features to base firmware other than the ability to pirate new games like the others. Thats why I like XMBM+ , its part of the firmware once its installed, always there, doesnt need to be booted up, just works!

    this is only doable with icontex.qrc. it holds the images for the categories, excluding psn category, which image is in xmb_plugin_normal.rco. but it changes only the full xmb and not ingame. for ingame you have to change each explore_category rco. take a look at jfw firmware and you will see (just saying, but this file is not that easy to customize)

    i think a user called Eustolio was the first one who did this and for reference i would take a look at: http://www.scenespain.net/foro/tutoriales-ps3/tutorial-xmb-custom-cambia-el-color-e-iconos-base-del-xmb/

    problem with the icons is, the custom ones must have the same size or a specific one to be accepted (talking about iconsize not filesize)

    we have this line to download the theme pkg

    <Pair key="module_name"><String>webbrowser_plugin</String></Pair>
    <Pair key="module_action"><String>http://dl.dropbox.com/u/60710927/XMBMANPLS/THEMEPACKS/XMB_Manager_Plus_v1.00RCA-THEMEPACK-ORIGINAL.pkg</String></Pair>

    what i want that it directly installs the pkg from the internal harddrive like the line what i made
    but i dont now what the plugin is for the package manager

    <Pair key="module_name"><String>need to now what plugin is for the package manager so it directly installs the pkg</String></Pair>
    <Pair key="module_action"><String>/dev_hdd0/game/XMBMANPLS/USRDIR/THEMEPACKS/XMB_Manager_Plus_v1.00RCA-THEMEPACK-ORIGINAL.pkg</String></Pair>

    Look in path: dev_flash\vsh\resource\explore\user\ :)
    You have 3 "sets" of 9 images each, used for the "default user avatars" (a total of 27 images)
    Can be changed by making one of the "packs" andreus did with other files

    [​IMG]

    Btw, what hansdamft said is the correct way to replace "main" XMB icons (inside dev_flash\vsh\resource\qgl\icontex.qrc), dont subestimate this method because is the only way to do it
    But sadly there is no tool to manage "QRC" files... the file format is close to "P3T" (themes) but with some differences that generates errors in the extraction/injection, so this modifications in "QRC" files needs to be made "by hand" in a hexeditor (read this explains eustolio wrote in the link)


    Edit: for the record...
    QRC files are compressed with zlib... after the decompression you have the format that is close to a theme... by doing some patching manually in the file and changing the file extension you can get a file that is "valid" for some of the tools that manages themes, this way you can extract the contents
    But this extraction is not complete, and some extracted files are corrupt
    I never tryed to "inject" files back with one of this themes tools, because is a nonsense, its obvious half of the extracted files are corrupt, broken, or missing

    As a interesting note... the other "QRC" files contains interesting things, like the "video effects for the audio player", or the "12 monthly background images"
    Have fun ;)

    Thanks :). That was just me getting excited because just coincidentally I've started working on the project again a week before he made that post. For the first time I have been able to view on my own PS3 the latest XMBM+. What I meant was I was going to clean up version 1, for a proper public release. I've had many ideas I want to add now I can work on it properly. But the few weeks thing, was about the version 1 public release. Don't get you're hopes too high, only I'm working on it now.
