PS3HaX member DeViL303 has released an XMB Filemanager, which allows you to browse the entire PS3 filesystem, straight from the XMB, here is a quote from the developer:
I have made a little XMB mod for Rebug 3.55.2 that I call XMB File Manager (XMBFM). It is a modded version of Rebug’s package manager that allows the entire ps3 filesystem to be browsed and also any files types can be seen and deleted. Im hoping to add things like copy function etc but would like to get feedback and help if anyones game?
This wont work on standard CFW for now , only on Rebug , but i will release a standard version in next few days if anyone thinks I should bother. Please like this post as it will encourage me
This is a beta version for anyone who might be interested in helping me test it or improve on it.
Install instructions: It requires you to switch 2 files from dev_flash. heres a quick tut:
- I use multiman , go to settings near the bottom of menu.
- select the mount dev_flash to dev_blind option. click enable
- next go to multiman file manager
- copy over the 2 files to thier different locations
- category_game.xml goes in dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/
- explore_plugin_full.rco goes in dev_blind/vsh/resource/
- next disable dev_blind option in multiman
- then exit multiman to see your new XMB File Manager
This is perfectly safe and I have even tested deleting most of dev_flash before and its easy reinstall FW through recovery menu so dont worry, just make sure you are on Rebug 3.55.2, It migtht cause a error on normal 3.55CFW
Have fun and let me know if you have an ideas on how I could expand it by adding things like copy function etc. Im not the best at this so any help is much appreciated?
Big Thanks to Cyberskunk and Evilsperm (Team Rebug) for the package manager which this is based on. And also for Rebug CFW.. its my favourite!
Please before anyone flames that this is crap I did only start properly making it last night so give me a little time and maybe it will become cool. (I discovered the “exploit” that allows this back in 2010 but didnt get around to doing anything with it until now)
If anyone wants to explain an easy way of making this into a pkg file I would be delighted to hear or get some help, Im sure its not very difficult but I havnt time to figure out everything and would like this to become even more of a collaboration if anyones interested?

There was a problem with the previous upload, that has been fixed now.
It has been confirmed that this method works on 3.55 OFW, by gliitch, so there may be a possibility of it working on 4.0.
It has been confirmed that this works on 4.0, for more info, check this post.
