Backup Manager Customization
It seems that there is still a large amount of people that are unaware that backup managers can be customized visually. With the recent releases and popularity of programs to make and install custom coldboot files, this seems like as good a time as any to let those people know that all the most popular backup managers can be tailored to your visual tastes as well. Some themes even include sound!
Whether you use Gaia, Multiman, Rogero, Open Manager or something else you can replace the image files to make the backup manager look how ever you like!
-With Multiman this is (usually) as simple as installing a pkg file and changing the theme from the file manager section within Multiman itself.
-With Open Manager (wuepe edition) you can change the theme by copying a theme to a flash drive, inserting the flash drive in your PS3 and starting Open Manager. A theme editor/creator can be found HERE for making your own themes.
-With Gaia and Rogero Managers you can ftp the theme over to your PS3 or use a file manager such as Multiman or Comgenie to replace the original theme files.
