[WIP]OI CMA needs beta-testers

Post by dridri » Sun Mar 18, 2012 1:25 am

Hi
Based on Yifan Lu's research, we're working on an open source content manager.
I can't release it now for two reasons : it doesn't have GUI (it is not really necessary but it's more user-friendly) and it may have bugs that break your data.
Currently the program can only transfer applications, games and save-data (no music/video/photo and full backup/restore, but it's planned)

So I come here to find some beta-testers who have a Linux system (porting to other platforms is planned), have a minimum of programming knowledge and want to help me to make this program safe and useful.
Just PM me and I'll send you the current sources (but don't leak please :? ).
You have to compile it by launching the 'build.sh' little script as root user, then start 'oicma' as root too. But before that I recommend you to make a backup of all your data using the official CMA.

Thanks for helping

Edit: I forget to say that testers need to install libusb1-dev and libxml2-dev
Edit2: libtool is also needed

EDIT3: Now it's closed, I have a dozen of testers so it will be enough

Thanks for all your help finding bugs and finding the commands!

To the rest: once the libvitamtp project reaches maturity, any developer can implement vita support in their media manager of any interface.

dridri has been a TON of help, but his implementation is too advanced (having a database and such) to be considered "example code". It is a great end-user client that uses libvitamtp, but, I would like to write some heavily commented, and simple code that shows all the features of libvitamtp. Basically, it should contained all the features of the official CMA, but nothing more (a command line tool, no database, etc) written in simple C code.

Here's what I have so far: https://github.com/yifanlu/VitaMTP/blob ... /opencma.c for you developers to get an idea of what I'm trying to do. As you can see, some functions have been implemented, but most are still undone.
