XMB Manager Plus (XMBM+) is a new XMB category based off of REBUG’s "Package Manager", which is a modded version of the official (debug/Jailbreak) "Install Package Files" XMB option.
This will replace the "Install Package Files" option or for REBUG CFW "Package Manager".
XMB Manager Plus allows the entire PS3 filesystem to be browsed and/or deleted (all file types supported), We have added functions to REBUG's
"Package Manager" and renamed it to "Package Manager Plus", it consists of all previous features plus it now includes new Homebrew Category that has
options to download a selection of popular PS3 homebrew packages. We have also added a new "Game Data Manager" that contains all games data type
tools, like saves, backups, etc. There are plenty more options also available in this new update, see the changelog below.
Allows homebrew/packages to be easily downloaded, installed and deleted.
File Manager Plus
Browse and Delete files from all locations such as hdd, usb, etc.
Game Data Manager
Includes all the game data tools from main XMB plus some more additions. Things like Gamedata, Savedata, Backups and trophys are contained here.

one new combined category.

Bubba, is this safe to go on Cobra NFW? Or can we expect to see an updated NFW with it already in there?
haha yeah it would be safe but, Afaik it'll only show up without the Cobra inserted. I'm planning on a NFWv4-CE (Cobra Edition) but for those of you already using NFWv3-CobraUSB I'll create a simple dev_blind update pack.
Shit I've been so busy lately I almost forgot about NFW, lol
