[Release] InstallPKG – SingStar XMB Replacement Installer by DeanK

December 23, 2012

multiMAN developer DeanK has released InstallPKG, which replaces the stupid SingStar Icon on the XMB on newer Custom Firmwares (Rogero 4.30,…).

InstallPKG – SingStar XMB Replacement Installer by DeanK

System/Firmware Requirements:
– Any custom firmware (CFW) that has been affected by the undeletable SingStar XMB Icon (Rogero 4.30-rev. 2.03 CFW is known to be affected by this).

Removing The SingStar XMB Background Music/Image

If you dislike the SingStar XMB Background Image/Music, then you can delete the PIC1.PNG, PIC0.PNG and the SND0.AT3 files from the “/dev_hdd0/game/NPEA00374″ directory using mmOS (multiMAN’s point-and-click file manager) in order to disable the background and music when the “* Install Package Files” XMB entry is selected in the XMB.

Ok, I was fooling around so here it is:

1) No need to download singstar or install it offline
2) Install this package
3) Done

If you ever feel sad and want singstar back – just press [Triangle] and [Delete] the new [IPF] and XMB will bring SS back. You can also get rid of the standalone installPKG and you’ll have a legitimate IPF now (using the ID of Singstar – so no worries there!)

Have in mind that this will behave almost like the original [* Install Package Files] and will stay on top of the list just under /app_home (thanks to the new PARAM.SFO field ITEM_PRIORITY).
