Ultimate Toolbox Setup

  • Toolbox Components - Hide Show toolbox sections
  • Manage Addon Modules - Download or Remove optional resources
  • webMAN MOD resources - Install or remove wmm resources in dev_hdd0/tmp/
  • Change Toolbox Language - Work in progress - Only English available at release but has support for changing between 21 languages if they become available.
  • About Ultimate Toolbox - Update link, Uninstall options and donation links/QR codes.
  • Reinstall Ultimate Toolbox Plugin - This item needs to be ran once after any CFW reinstall. This patches flash with the required files.


  • This has been tested on Rebug, Evilnat and Ferrox and on 4.87.1 HFW with the latest HEN.
  • There are a few items that are for CFW only, these options are labelled with flashing symbols warning to not use them on HEN.
  • If anyone wants to release a language translation add on, look in the dev_hdd0/ULTOOLBOX/USRDIR/language_packs/English/ folder, there are approx 7MB of xmls in there that would need translating. It's a fairly big job, I will release a pkg template for installing extra languages if anyone wants it.
  • If you are on HEN, after install you need to go into Firmware Settings > HEN Options and choose to promote the HEN enabler for your HFW version to the root of game. You can also enable HEN from there if required.
  • There is a link to Evilnat 4.87.3 included in the PUP downloader section, for now this links to Evilnat 4.87.2, when the PUP is available the file will be updated server side.
  • There could be bugs in this software so use it at your own risk.
  • After initial install it will change your PSN icons color to blue, you can change this to red inside the visual customization menu if you want to.

This should work on any recent CFW that has support for XMBM, by that I mean any recent CFW that has this query in category_game.xml. If your firmware does not have this query you can add support by simply adding it to your own xml.


It has been tested on 4.87.2 Evilnat CFW and also on recent Rebug FW (4.84.2 and 4.86.1).

Some extra info on this XMB Mod for those interested.

You will notice when you first install it there is a "Run this once now to install the required plugin" item at the top of the menu. Like the title suggests this should be ran once to install the required files to flash. This is placed here so that its not missed by anyone as its very important this is ran after initial install.

This installer application installs these vital files to dev_flash:

  • xai_plugin.sprx (used for dump tools, installed incase it does not exist on the system)
  • xai_plugin.rco - dummy rco
  • videodownloader_plugin.sprx (extended xai_plugin required for all copy operations)
  • videodownloader_plugin.rco (dummy rco)
  • category_psn.xml (installed to stop category HM apps from showing in the PSN category)
  • downloader_plugin.sprx (I added this due to the fact that Evilnat 4.87.2 CFW seems to be missing a patch to this file)

So that's all fairly simple, run this once and files install and once the console comes back to the XMB. You will notice that its not there anymore at the top of the menu, now it has moved into the Ultimate Toolbox Setup menu and now it has a different name "Reinstall Ultimate Plugin". This is put there in case you need it later.

The reason this is included here is for the situation where you have updated or reinstalled your CFW, this will lead to the files on flash being removed, so if you install or update CFW, remember you need to run this again once to reinstall the required files to flash.

Uninstalling Ultimate Toolbox: If you want to remove the Toolbox from your system for any reason you can press triangle on this icon and select "Delete", after a reboot the Toolbox will be uninstalled.

Important Note: If you forget/fail to run this application initially after first installing the toolbox, OR after a CFW reinstall/update, you will get kicked to recovery and see this screen if you try to use most features, do not worry, this is not a soft brick. Just press the PS button once and the system will reboot back onto the XMB. Then you can run the "Reinstall Ultimate Plugin" app and everything will be working again. This happens due to the fact you are trying to call a plugin that does not exist.
