• PS3 Hacks , 09.09.2009

    StreetSkaterFU has decrypted the new animated PS3 themes to see what they really are made, to quote from his blog below:

    A quick look at the new animated themes shows that they are not really different to the common themes. I just downloaded the free theme from the japanese store and decrypted the HDD again to see what is inside the package file. Well, it is:

    1. JP9000-NPJQ00006_00-0000000000000000.p3t.edat

    You see a normal .p3t file which is the same type of data, the old themes use. It is just encrypted as .edat file which is decrypted and installed on the PS3 on the fly after downloading it.

    2. PS3LOGO.DAT

    The default picture you see in any game when you press triangle -> information about the game.

    That’s all. Wondering if there will be a homebrew program to develop your own animated themes soon, or even a SONY tool like the one for the old themes?!

      Wish he would post the decrypted files, it's obviously not just a regular PS3 theme file as Sony said it requires a dev kit.

      Hello friends,
      I like the XMB. It's fast and intuitive. I don't care if it's flashy or whatnot. It works- it gets me to the content I want. That's what a user iterface is supposed to do. If you xbox and apple people want to stare at your GUI all day, be my guest. I'll be playing a game or watching a movie.
      Thanks for sharing this view,
