    Alright i was bored and decided to create a thread on XMB Customization, ex fonts, gameboots, icons, xmb waves etc.

    Disclaimer! All these XMB Customizations flash FLASH0, so there is a small chance of bricking, recommended for CUSTOM FIRMWARE PSPs, I'VE DONE ALL THIS ON MY 3.03 OE-C SO IM NOT SURE IF IT WORKS FOR OTHER FIRMWARES


    XMB(Xross Media Bar or the psp's menu) Customization


    Description
    *I uploaded and decided to share all my xmb customization files for ya'll

    Custom XMB Waves

    if your pic doesn't load click here
    Instructions
    ONLY works on 3.03 OE and 3.10 OE psp's

    Step 1) copying the files over
    *Download my pack (double click on the wave pic)
    *open up and copy the contents of "Wave Flasher.rar" into your GAME150 folder
    *open up and copy the contents of "XMB Waves Pack.rar" to the root of your memory stick

    Step 2) running the wave flasher
    *go on your psp run the wave flasher (screenshot here)
    *on the wave fasher menu pick out a wave you want and press "x"
    thats it just keep trying out different waves until you find one you like enjoy =)

    Custom XMB Themes

    if the pic doesnt work click here
    more 60x34 bitmaps backgrounds
    Instructions

    Step 1) copying and creating necessary files
    *download (double click on the pic above) and extract the contents of "background flasher.rar" to the GAME folder
    *create a new folder in the root of your memory stick and rename it "BMP"
    *go onto recovery mode and set the GAME folder on 1.5 kernel

    Step 2) picking out and setting up your backgrounds
    *backgrounds MUST be 60x34 pixels, must be 6,176 bytes or less
    *pick out 12 backgrounds with those requirements above
    *rename the backgrounds 01.bmp, 02.bmp, 03.bmp, 04.bmp, all the way to 12.bmp and place them in the BMP folder you created in the root of your stick

    Step 3) Running the flasher
    *go on your psp and run the theme flasher (screenshot here)
    *the flasher will automatically start creating and flashing
    *KNOWN BUG - if the flasher is still flashing after a minute, turn the psp off and run it again, it should work the second time
    enjoy your new theme =)

    I bricked using UFlash for my font. Then again, maybe 3.10 OE can't handle fonts just yet, like icons.

    I'll wait for Art to release something snazzy.

    Very nice But I would edit the Flashing part to a "manual " way. Those Uflash and Xflash and etc etc.. Brick a lot of people, nothing is safer than doing it manually. that would avoid people coming and saying I BRICK etc.

    By the way PSP if you want you can add my waves to your PACK of 'waves' (My signature) just letting you guys know since I have no copyrights or anything like it.


    Good job!

    That's cool. I didn't fuck with icons because I knew there wasn't an X-Flash release for 3.10 yet, and everyone said custom topmenus didn't work. I figured fonts did because it wasn't specifically mentioned.

    My only gripe was the whole downgrade back to 1.5 then move to 3.10 again. Is there any way to brick recover from 3.10 back into an OE?

    For instance, the brick recovery folder I had had a DATA.PXAR for recovering into 3.02 OE-A, but it didn't work, because it gave me sceIoOpen() error or some odd. I got the same problem a second spin around, so then I came on here and grabbed the folder. I know the flasher clears out flash0, so maybe it's in the flash1?

    i was thinking about doing it the manual way, but some noobs might fuck around with the flash0, i mean the flash0 usb is an advanced feature

    and virus nine, why dont you try the recovery folder and the recovery option in the recovery mode?

    recovery mode, or if you can find an untouched 3.03 oe-c firmware dump, and copy the flash0 to the flash0 usb,

    also i think flash agent has a recovry menu that brings back the original stuff

    or just back up your original topmenus, waves and stuff, or reflash the original stuff

    Yes, I found a way to recover back into an older version of an OE custom firmware. All that you need to do is either downgrade/upgrade to 3.03 OE-C or find an untouched 3.03 OE-C dump, make a backup copy of the flash0 in the flash0 USB mode, and then if you brick on 3.1 OE-A then all you need to do is copy the 3.03 OE-C flash0 over the 3.1 OE-A flash0 and it will give you the restore (blue screen) that asks you to press O and re put in your info and wallaa your on 3.03 OE-C again.
