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
– 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
installPKG [SingStar Replacement].pkg (254.08KB)
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).
