PSPInstaller 5 (version 5.30)
Spike_132000 in colab with Corrosion at

PSPInstaller 5 is the successor of PSPInstaller 4.12. PSPInstaller runs on both OFW and CFW and allows the users to easily install homebrew, themes and plugins. The Process is simply, browse the file database, select the file, and choose to download and install it straight away, or download it now and install it later! When the process is complete you can exit to the XMB to play the new downloaded game/application, or install the new CXMB theme.

This version will (eventually) also feature Featured Apps/Games/Themes. I am hoping (to pay for server costs) that people will want to advertise there stuff within PSPInstaller so it appears on the front page (see screenshots below) and may well be the first thing that users will see.

I am looking to take on 4 apps/themes/games for the full initial release of PSPInstaller, So if you are interrested. Please give me a shout. Details can be found within the download and within the application.


- Press L and R Trigger to exit!
- This app requires WiFi but will run in a limited state without it.
- This app does not support Game Catagories and may not ever unfortunately.

This app is community driven and requires everyone's help! Please upload your homebrew to:

Signed Eboots / Themes that work on Official Firmware:
Unsigned Eboots / CXMB Themes:

Code: Select allArchives need to be in ZIP file format. The archive should replicate the root of the memory stick. So your ZIP archive should include a PSP Folder and inside that one should include a GAME Folder, then the GAMENAME in that one, then the EBOOT and additional files required.


The Genesis logo is part of the boot up and is contained in this download

NEW VERSION (5.30) - All Signed (Works on CFW and OFW)
Download: VERSION 6: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=5960
Delete any previous version of PSPInstaller and copy the PSPInstaller_5 folder to your PSP/GAME or PSP/GAME5XX Folder

Well, you should had sent a private message to the Mods in order to reopen the previous post but.... well, it's done.
Your application sounds promising, but as it needs wifi connection, seems similar to... you know what.
Sorry, I didn't know about your application before this, but I think it will be more like a developer's interface, with some specific instructions build to developer and so install all possible homebrew in the PSP without problems to the final user. Something like an installer in the PC.
Only saying... :roll:

A few errors
When the application loads up, connects to the internet and downloads some files, after coming to the message below, it freezes.

Then it gives me the message below.

I restart, Then it gives me the message below:

<probably because the internet it still connected.

After I continue, I get the following message

I restart and the cycle continues.
Hope this gets fixed soon.

And I am on a psp 3000, 6.35 PRO B3

Hi Karkinissan, the whole phase of downloading and updating should not be interupted by screenshots, please wait for the process to complete as it will download the files eventually. from 55 to 70 percent it is downloading the featured app images, please download again and try again without interupting it. I will work on better correction methods to prevent this from happening. Thanks

Hi equis, im not entirely sure what you mean by the second half of your post. It is solely for the use of end-users, not developers.

Entry accepted, welcome to the competition.
This looks like it could become major. I've ran into problems quitting the application (could be one of my plugins causing an issue).
I'd also love to see a progress bar when downloading/installing.

Finally, I tried to install Wolf3D, and Wolf3D ran its own menu, but didn't accept to run any actual game. I assume this is because the res files are required...maybe the game description, or something should give a hint that additional downloads might be required...

Very nice app, anyways, let's hope the "community driven" goal will catch up. I'd be interested to get people's opinion on how this compare to similar homebrews :)

Edit: I updated the thread's name for clarification.

Thanks Wololo!

I am also having issues with exiting but i think this has something to do with PGELua (although im sure it worked in previous versions) Will work on that.

Also, PGE doesn't allow me to animate whilst files are being downloaded. I did research into this and got told it wasn't possible, I am far from experienced enough to create my own net stuff.

I see, it is probably not multithreaded. In that case I would suggest the following:
When the app starts, it downloads a few files (promoted contents, etc...), right? At that time, maybe you could measure how long it took to download the files, to get an idea of the user's average download speed.
Then, based on this info, when somebody starts a download, display how long you estimate this would take.

At the very least, displaying the size of the download would be good. I watched at the Wolf3D download for literally 5 minutes before deciding to go do something else. Other homebrews took much less time, so I assume this really depends on the size of the homebrew.

Dude, I am not stupid! I know what I am doing.
BTW, what is the minimum bandwidth required to download those files? <if a high bandwidth is required><if not, then those above errors I mentioned keep on coming>
