xmbgameloader - make 3.55 xmb mount pkgs for nearly EVERY game (except blackscreen)
dunno if this app is well known but it is very handy for those of you, who don't like to start everytime a bum before running the game and who do "like xmb cluttering":D. it does exactly the same as a bum, mount game to:
"app_home/PS3_GAME/dev_bdvd", but it installs on xmb and it works maybe for every game (even GOW3!!!) except blackscreen games, which need paticular mounting (consider it as last game app for every game). it includes a hermes payload in the pkg to make discless easier. in addition you can make usb-mounting pkgs to play from usb-drive, which is neccessary for specific games such as Prototype to play on 3.55 fw. so far this is one of the best pkg-maker out there in my opinion and very noob friendly as you only have to select paths of your files. no sfo edit no folder change, cause the pkg installs to "TIDUXXXXX" in gamedata categorie.
Note: it depends on java runtime environment. although it says 3.41 pkgs these are signed for 3.41 but only work for 3.55 fws as i already tested it a hundred times.
because it is only for usb001-usb006 and i have games only for usb000, i edited the jar file and replaced usb001 with usb000 for fat consoles. usb000 is the rightmost usb-port on a fat and usb006 is the leftmost usb port on a fat. i made a second jar version 1.30...
as a side note:
i noticed that if you install some pal games as direct boot pkg, those become ntsc version as a psn title. for example prototype, stranglehold, infamous, red faction guerilla, etc...
this is sometimes anoying and so the xmb-mount option is perfect in such moments.
