    Change your PSP XMB Icons! (1.5+) TUTORIAL INCLUDED!
    - tutorial originally by MedievalAnubis
    - XMB Icon Hack created by kgsws





    INFO:
    Change your PSP XMB icons on ANY FIRMWARE (1.5+3.02 OE), to anything you want! Follow tutorial and download the files to use. Really easy.
    Works great, follow tutorial and its all good. Sample frame ready to use included!


    Download The Whole Package That Has Has All You Need Below
    Mirror 1
    Mirror 2



    USE ONLY THE CORRECT VERSION OF TOPMENU_PLUGIN.RCO OF YOUR FIRMWARE
    INSTALL CUSTOM FIRMWARE BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT THIS

    BACK UP YOUR TOPMENU_PLUGIN.RCO BEFORE DOING THIS

    THIS CAN CAUSE A BRICK! NO ONE WILL TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR IT





    Extract the Icon maker file and you should have another two RAR archives.

    xmb-icons-250.rar -- can only be used to make the topmenu_plugin.rco for any firmware above 2.00 (which includes custom firmware)

    xmb-icons-150.rar -- can only be used to make the topmenu_plugin.rco for 1.50 (no network icon)

    xmb-icons-3.02FIX.rar ---Can be used for 3.02 OE

    Extract the one you are going to use and you should be ok


    OK first lets make your Icons!

    [*]64x64 pixels[*]8 bit color or 256 colors (same thing)[*]BMP Format[*]Transparency is defined by "first color in palette order"


    NOTE:The PSP only shows about 60x64 out of the icon. You still need to have 64x64. So leave about 4 pxls of border otherwise it will get cut off.

    They also have to numbered in the order that they are in the XMB


    Code:

    1.bmp -- Settings Icons

    2.bmp -- Photo Icon

    3.bmp -- Music Icon

    4.bmp -- Video Icon

    5.bmp -- Game Icon

    6.bmp -- Network Icon (only applicable to the 2.50 Icon maker)

    So you know your going to be using MS Paint. Probably been a while since you opened it...

    [*]Now that you've made your icons, its time to make your topmenu_plugin.rco
    [*]Copy your newly created icons to wherever you extracted your xmb icon maker package.
    [*]Once you do that all you have to do is double-click the start.bat program and a command console should pop up.

    Let it do its thing and once is says konecu scriptu... just hit any button to close the window.

    You should have a newly created topmenu_plugin.rco in the same folders as the bmps just waiting to be flashed.

    [*]Use the latest version of pspfiler to perform the flashing of topmenu_plugin.rco

    ~Flashing The Topmenu_plugin.rco To Flash0/VSH/Resource~

    It should already be in english, if not, press select then O then X to make it english.

    Next enable hacker mode by holding L1 and Left then pressing R1

    Go down to your RCO Press Square and then press X on it, then select the option to copy it to ramdisk

    Then press start until you reach flash0:/

    Scroll down to VSH and press O then hover over Resource and press X

    Then select the option to paste all files from ramdisk and wait for it to get to 100%

    Once this has been done just HOME and view your xmb!

    You should also add in that X-Flash can be used for a complete firmware dump, just in case someone manages to really screw it up.

    You should have loads of different colors like p0Wer's dg tutorial.

    Easier to read then!

    Great tutorial though!

    Yes but every other black pixel becomes transparent also and i'm left with an icon that can barely be seen. I have a picture of ryu's face and it has a lot of shadow. The shadow disappears as well as the black background

    Try to make the black lines you want to keep in a dark dark gray. That may help.
