Brunolee's Custom Gameboot Tool: Make Your Own PS3 Gameboots
Want to make your own gameboot for most versions of PS3 custom firmware? This tool can help you do it in a snap!
For those that don't know, a gameboot is a little logo that shows every time your PS3 launches a new game. Later official firmwares have removed gameboots from the console entirely, but with this tool, you can make one of your own. Essentially what it does is give you a template boot to start with that you can alter to your liking. After it's finished, the file is then exported as a zip archive to be installed via multiMAN. For now this tool only works on custom firmwares 4.55 and below. See more info and a complete use tutorial in the official release log!
