XMB Icon Manager, Customize your XMB icon functions


XMB Icon Manager

Here’s something new from Total_Noob via Team GEN. Xmb Icon Manager, this prx plug-in lets you rename and modify the functions of the XMB icons. And all without touching the flash0. (Which as we know can be is risky – Bricks aren’t nice..)

You can use the network update icon to now shut down your PSP. Rename icons to suit your needs, for example an icon to boot a homebrew or PSX game. Below is a list of what modes are available.

What does it do ?

  • Can change the name of any icon
  • Can change the function of any icon
  • Launch a files directly from any icon

Modes available are :

  • shutdown
  • suspend
  • reboot
  • game (launch homebrews)
  • updater (Launch update)
  • pops (launch PSXgames)
  • backup (Launch ISO/CSO)
  • restartvsh (reboot VSH – usefull for PSP running under HEN or 5.03GEN)

Installation is like any other prx plug-in. Add the following line to your vsh.txt inside the plug-ins folder of your MS.

ms0:/seplugins/xmbim.prx 1

Usage is detailed over at the source.

    This is isn’t working for me.

    I have a PSP – 3000 with 5.03 GEN-C. My other plugins are Dayviewer, CWCHEAT, and Gamecategories.

    OK, so I boot into ChickHEN, then try to start up 5.03 GEN-C. It says rebooting into Gen-C and after that it freezes and turns off. Help.

    Am I the only one on 5.00-M33-6 who is having trouble? Thus far, I have only used it to launch applications, but unfortunately it crashes the PSP every time I try to launch one.

  7. KG6ZVP says:

    PROBLEM: PSP crashes on Homebrew / ISO backup / POPs
    SOLUTION: in the path “ms0:\ISO\game.iso”, change the line to “ms0:/ISO/game.iso”

    Does this help anyone who has had problems?
