XMB Package Downloader

XMB Package Downloader, or XMBPD, is an add-on for Rebug REX that allows you to browse and download categorized homebrew and over 900 themes from the XMB. Note that this software will most likely software brick any console not running Rebug REX. This can be fixed by re-installing the same firmware.

Installing XMBPD

You will need Cobra and CFW Settings enabled in Rebug Toolbox while you are installing or uninstalling the app. You will also need an account on your PS3 that has been on PSN at some point. It does not need to be signed in, or have to connect to PSN, but if you do not have a PSN account on your console, you will only be able to view and download themes.
