To shorten the time while waiting for R35, I've made a Special Edition of R34 hacked.
This release contains a German language file, the homebrew apps SMS v2.2 and uLE v4.12 and a modified BootManager v2.1.6.
NOTE: Due to compatibility problems, SMS and uLE can only be started from memory card.
BM has been changed to show the Firmware Manager when booted from the update disc, to make the "Format dffs" option available. This is useful for CC2.0 owners who have trouble with BM and can't reinstall it to the chip (Failed to create dffs:/BM!).
In addition I've made it possible to load Themes from all devices, which is also helpful for CC2.0 users, because the 1MB flash doesn't have enough space for Themes.
As a little bonus I've added some more language variables, to make it possible to translate (nearly) everything, and I've cured a few small bugs in some menu titles.
To change the language to German, just go into Interface Config inside the Configuration menu and change the language to German.
Upgrading from CD:
Just burn the bin/cue files with your favorite burning software.
E.g. with Nero: goto burn image in the recorder menu, select the bin and set mode2, then burn it to CD. Or just select the cue and burn away.
Look at the official CC homepage for more detailed burning instructions: http://crystal-chips.com/main/content/view/70/62/
When upgrading from R33 or older:
Boot the disc in Recovery Mode! (http://crystal-chips.com/main/content/view/18/36/)
Upgrading without CD:
When you use R30 or higher you can install BM with the App Browser like any other app. The FW can be upgraded with the new FW Manager which works like the App Browser.
You can also still use the installation via network described on the CC Wiki, but when updating from R29 you have to use SHUTDOWNN "MM" in the APPINFO.PBT of PS2Link. (look at the SMS or ULE APPINFO.PBT for an example)
Have fun with this!
EDIT: I attached a small fix solving the issue that the Theme settings are not saved properly when changing to another Theme. I will only work correctly with the R34 modified release due to the changes I made in the config script.
The BMTHMFIX can be installed with the Application Browser, just install the "BM Theme Save Fix" app to the device where your BM is located (Memory Card 1 or CC Flash). This way only the CONFMENU.PBT is updated and you don't have to install BM again.
