If you are a developer that want to use CCAPI. You have a several option:

  • You can use the demo codes provided in the CCAPI Package for Developers (download link is below). You may find some example for a few languages such as C/C++/C#.
  • You can also use imcsx's implementation for C#, the specificity is that it is also compatible with TMAPI.
  • Finally if your programming language is not supported, or if you prefer to make your own implementation, it is possible to directly import the functions from CCAPI.dll yourself. The main functions to achieve that are LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress from the WINAPI, you can find them in a lot of languages C/C++/.net/Java, etc. 


The CCAPI (Windows) documentation is available here: Win documentation

The CCAPI (Others) documentation is available here: (Not yet)

Does anyone know how I can put my phantom mod menu on my 4.82 ps3 since none of the ccapi packages above work on my ps3?are there any other routes?

GhostV1, why are are you being a dick??? If your'e that desperate, why not try and make a homebrew to do it yourself for the good of the community??? That's right, you can't. So show some fucking respect for the dude who's made CCAPI possible for thousands over the years!!

11/22/2017 15:49:18

If you would like or need I will offer assistance with this and test on my Reference Tool consoles if your team does not have any to work on. Just let me know.      -Jeff From The Intrenz Development Team.

If you would be able to update this to support DECR skus (Reference Tools) That would be greatly appreciated as TMAPI is finiky with these systems in that it only wants to connect in standby via dev lan.

Hello, I have come to understand that your software is incompatible with DECR systems. I have tried multiple methods including swapping kernel to a dex one, and using DECR Rebug 4.81 with Dex VSH to no avail.
