    Things I figured out since I made this video:
    1) It was in fact the Sonic 4 theme that caused issues, as I switched back to the Holiday dynamic theme and any flickering and freezing stopped.
    2) MultiMAN tricks the disc "channel" into thinking its whatever it loaded, hence why my Splatterhouse disc looked like it was the Nier disc.
    3) The PS3 will always revert to the XMB when the eject button is hit in-game as a "safety precaution."

    Enjoy!

    My rating is based only on how the firmware works for me, and not based on all the brick reports. The firmware worked for me, so it is reviewed as a working firmware.

    Dreamland.
    Yeah he does, he just made a CFW for the ps3. Though only certain ps3 can work with his CFW. That's why a lot of people are bricking their ps3s.

    Currently waiting on my recovery menu to revert to OFW, so I can test out the same loading processes on kmeaw's CFW. Will report back when I'm able.

    While on OFW, I'm probably going to do a series on old-school emulators for PS3. I'll also switch back to that Sonic 4 theme to see if the theme itself really is that much of a burden. >.<

    EDIT: Indeed, the Sonic 4 theme is such an overbearing theme that it flickers when returning to the XMB from anything on OFW. Guess I'll just find a good static image for Sonic 4, because I like the icons and sounds.

    EDIT: Re-opened and moved to appropriate section.

    Thank you for fixing my error. I've finished my emulator review series, attempting to upload it now.

    Let me know if you can get LBP2 working without a disc. I just bought the f-ing game today hoping it would work without a disc. So far everything I have tried (besides CFW) has not worked. I don't dare go into CFW yet because I am still working on a open source nor flasher.
