New features in v1.03 (Jan 27, 2021):
- Fixed Module Download links and Toolbox Update link
- Numbered all mods in the menus for easier identification by users (001 to xxx)
- Rebuilt the Wave options menu so now the waves are also an optional downloadable/removable module
- Added over 250 completely new wave options, now you can choose the waves left/right colors and their speed. They are all based on the 0.91 DECR wave.
- To declutter the menus the Remove Module options now only show in Toolbox Setup (if the module is installed)
- Tidied up labels on some menus
- Added 2 PS4 style themes to theme downloader
- Base version now only 19MB due to creating the wave module.

Due to the significant changes I recommend uninstalling v1.02 before installing this version, this is just so you do not have some extra unused crap left on HDD. You can do that via the Toolbox Setup menu > Uninstall option.


New features in v1.02 (Jan 22, 2021):
- Toolbox is now modular with a 30MB BASE version being the standard download.
- On the BASE version, Optional extras like Coldboot Logos, Coldboot sounds, Fonts, themes, -PS2 emulators , wallpapers and visualizations are now all available for download from inside their respective menus, or from within the new Module Manager in Toolbox Setup.
- Users can install the FULL version if they want all modules available after install without any extra downloads required.
- The BASE version can be upgraded to be exactly the same as the FULL version by downloading all modules.
- The FULL version can be downgraded to be exactly the same as the BASE version by removing all modules.
- Added options to toggle xmb_plugin for showing IP info on the XMB.
- New screensaver options with ability to download OR stream 10 screensaver videos with or without audio
- Small change to File Explorer so it shows dev_hdd0 and dev_hdd1 as separate entries.
- Power options toggler now has "reboot options" as requested by @aldostools
- Added force canyon presets menu with 60 options
- Added force wave presets menu with 33 options
- Added PS2 Netemu toggler with 8 options. (Thanks to @kozarovv for those files)
- Added XMB icons style toggler with 12 options (icons.qrc)
- Now over 100 fonts available in font installer, 80 new ones added since v1.01
- Now over 380 coldboot logos available in the logo installer, 350 new ones added since v1.01 (thanks to @LuanTeles for those files)
- Now over 80 Gaia visualizations available, 50 new ones added since v1.01
- Added Impose mod (DECR 0.90 ps3 image) toggler
- All icons optimized. All the visualization mods now using jpg icons @ 240x240. There was some 486x405 pngs left in here taken from ps3EXTRA ISOs. Shaved a few MB off.
- All mods names standardized to make things more consistent, Now named 1.*** to xx.*** with matching icons named 1.jpg to xx.jpg (lines/earth/canyon/icons/fonts/ac3s)
- Bugs from 1.01 fixed , missing amiga boot sound icon, ofw coldboot swapped with rebug.
- Added an Dedicated Uninstall option to Toolbox Setup that removes Ultimate Toolbox.

- From now on, You can use the update feature to reinstall the Toolbox if required, the update item will always be linked to the Latest BASE pkg.

Experimental new feature for devs that allows them to swap between debug and standard Cobra payload, the user must provide the payloads on flash. This feature is not for noobs and is experimental. Use at your own risk!

Fixes (Jan 23, 2021):
Typo "delete resouces" instead of "delete resources" on the remove addon module options
Typo "filee" instead of "file" on the Install coldboot logo from USB option
Uninstall extended download plugin option was not working due to a typo in the copy command: "orignal" instead of "original"
Screensaver download and stream for Flying Light (Silent) was broken due to "www" instead of "dl" in the URL
Removed the impose plugin mod due to freezes, I might add it back some time.
Added minimum version checker to Backup Utility > Dump Tools

New features in v1.01 (Jan 12, 2021):
Gaia installer
Coldboot sound installer with 30 boot sounds
Toggle coldboot.raf on and off
Toggle extended download plugin
Toggle imagefont.bin upgrade
Toggle blur effects
Dump tools (by Mysis) added to backup utility
More info added to lots of entries
Little tweaks here and thereNote: As usual there might be some bugs, so use this at your own risk!

Note 2: If you want to use a long coldboot sound like the PS5 or Xbox series X boot sound, you will find it cuts off early when the XMB has loaded fully. There is a workaround for this. Just go to Visual Customization > Toggle Blur effect and click on any one of the 3 options. This will install a custom_render_plugin.rco that allows longer coldboot sounds to play fully.

Credits: To everyone in the scene, there are too many to name. It builds on the work of just about everyone.

Special thanks to @aldostools, @bguerville @Berion and @mysis
