Project : CXMB - Custom XMB Replacement *CANCELLED*
Seems this bit of news was somehow over looked so here it is in a nutshell. This project was announced by Darkhacker a couple of weeks ago over at PS3Hax.net. In the announcement Darkhacker claims that he will be working on porting the now infamous CXMB app for the PSP over to the PS3. CXMB is a homebrew app that allows you to load custom themes onto your PSP.
Here is a quote:
Goals of CXMB :CXMB, is a project i'm starting because i would like to see a better xmb replacement. as of right now the xmb will be running on psgl if you dont know what it is then you probably should not be reading this i'm looking for people who can code in c++ and understand somewhat of the ps3.
Darkhacker wants everyone to know that although these features will be implemented into CXMB in the future, they will not all be available with the first release of CXMB. According to Darkhacker, the first version of CXMB should be released in about a months time. Which now should be within the next couple of weeks.* Lanching Backup from xmb interface
* Make and Delete Folders on XMB
* Audio Player
* Video Player
* Picture Viewer
If this is something you would like to help Darkhacker with, you can send him a PM over at PS3Hax.net.cxmb run from the original xmb as a homebrew application. maybe later on down the road there will be someway to boot straight to a application at start up as of not we cant.
Update: Sorry for the inconvenience but I just got word that the project was shelved last night.
