=Note=
  • should not be fw dependant, tested on 4.46 and 4.7x and does not use hardcoded offset patches
  • requires peek+poke (sc6+7+8+9) for few options
  • Log File path: /dev_hdd0/tmp/cfw-settings.log (Note: in FSM its /dev_usb/cfw-settings.log + hidden + system file flagged)
  • if you are using another xai_plugin for ex. rebooting, it can lead to incompatibility to prevent that, change the actual module action in (probably) category_user.xml (?) to:
CFW-Settings 0.1-3.jpg
Code:
    "<Pair key="module_name"><String>xai_plugin</String></Pair>"
    "<Pair key="module_action"><String>soft_reboot_action</String></Pair>"          // soft reboot
or
Code:
    "<Pair key="module_name"><String>xai_plugin</String></Pair>"
    "<Pair key="module_action"><String>hard_reboot_action</String></Pair>"          // hard reboot
=Installation=
Code:
copy "xai_plugin.sprx" AND           
     "videorec.sprx"                 
to "/dev_blind/vsh/module/"

copy "xai_plugin.rco"
to "/dev_blind/vsh/resource/"

copy "category_network.xml",            (cfw-settings added for CEX xmb)
     "category_network_tool2.xml" and   (cfw-settings added for DEX xmb)
     "cfw_settings_en.xml"              (contains cfw-settings and rebug-settings xmb-folders)
to -> "/dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/"
=BD Remarry=

1) Toggle Factory Service Mode (should be easy now)
2) Put "eid_root_key" that belongs to the console to /dev_usb/
3) Select Remarry Bluray Drive in Network->cfw-settings->Remarry Bluray Drive
4) If everything went fine it should have notified: "CEX_drive_init() succeeded"
5) Dont forget to repair CRL/DRL if you need to fix it

Successfully remarried /dev_usb/cfw-settings.log should look like:
Code:
2011-12-31 19:00:24 [xai_plugin] :  : _xai_plugin_prx_entry()
2011-12-31 19:00:24 [xai_plugin] : 1 : xai_plugin_init()
