    I’d like to dedicate this honor to myself and give a shout out to myself for all the hard work that was put in.

    How does it work?

    Getting a 404 error when trying to open playstop.. server down?

    If you look at the source code all he does it scrape the HTML from this topic:

    I just don’t see the necessity to create an application that is just a wrapper for a web browser.

      IIRC at first the data was to be taken from a mysql database, but then it would be double work for Smoke to edit his post and then updating the database.
      It would be easy to revert it back to read data from a php query file.
      But if Smoke put some new formatting in the post, the parser would need updating (that may be the case now, I see there’s a homebrew with a comment).

      • Tempoal Mechanics

        But you could write a script that you run one time that runs through the HTML to insert the data to the database. This you could run the script whenever the list was updated, which would also allows you to insert new parser rules whenever the format was changed.

      haha, right. it’s better to extend VHBL menu to include a REAL Homebrew network.

      • JMQMOfficials

        If you look in the source code, it isn’t just for homebrew downloading. Yes I scrape it, why would I want to make it harder by making the homebrews by scratch every time someone double clicks a file.

    Unless this spoofs the actual PSN store, I’d like to suggest a vastly simpler alternative method.

    If you open the links on the XMB that require you to download an eboot, it opens the web browser to a website with a link to a simple INI file that points to the files.

    Just make a website that automatically generates those INI files. The browser already supports downloading eboots.

    • DS_Marine

      Was not for the actual store, but for HOMEBREW. Best part was that the files were already prepared for ARK or others, so you didn’t have to fiddle with the files.
      MANY people made mistakes when preparing the final zip file…

      • Techni

        “Was not for the actual store, but for HOMEBREW”

        Yes? The method I suggested would be for homebrew. It’d need no app on the Vita/PSP. Hence why I said “Unless this spoofs the actual PSN store, I’d like to suggest a vastly simpler alternative method.”

        PSP has a method for downloading eboots (which homebrew is) built in.

        “MANY people made mistakes when preparing the final zip file…”

        Hence my suggestion about using the INI files. It does everything

        • DS_Marine

          Well I was clearing the doubt stating that it doesn’t have anything to do with the PSN. Why are you so defensive?
          There are lots of valid methods to do what this app do, including the one you suggested. I explained why they used the method they did in another comment, but looks like it is ‘awaiting moderation’ -_-…

          • Techni

            im not being defensive by saying you missed my point

            no method that uses anything not on psp/vita already can be better than a method that does (like mine)

    hi, what about a pseudotv streaming server ? so pseudotv-tv-streamer to xbmc … now that pseudotv break the new build xbmc ( or not supported plugin anymore :/ )

    nevertheless i still like xc (xming) on the psp tho …
    a x frontend psp and ur pc as backend … if u got wifi on ur psp that is
    ( propably needs a connecting shell (allow disallow etc)

    Holy ***…dude is younger than I am and still in HS and is the creator of PSN homebrew….

    seeing this, it makes me realized just how some people can’t seem to understand how hard it is to code a software…

  12. JMQMOfficials

    Well I did start coding at 10 and did teach myself so my coding is not top notch as I will take coding classes at College and University.

    I don’t know why you guys are saying such negative things when most to some of you don’t even know how to start coding.

    I don’t see why you guys are also judging my method as it is faster than going to and finding the threads themselves and finding your homebrew.

    Is this the end of my 2.02 Exploit? I am getting the error “Cannot start this application. You must download the application again from [Download List] in [PS Store]. (C0-11136-2)… I’m upset if this is true because I don’t understand how this happened… Is there any way to bypass this or maybe be able to download this once more?? My exploit is Pool Kings

    @dark Knight i hope you dl the game and made a back up to your pc because that only happens when your signed in to psn and ur searches for addon files to that particular game.

    Good Morning! is it possible to install tnv on my vita if i would wait for king of pool to return on psntore from my ps3 then download it from my ps3 then copy it to my 3.01 vita? I would really appreciate if someone can answer this. Thank you!!

  21. ivo

    why not download the package and spoof install it via psn ?
    then maybe u could do it right away !
