Another way to load homebrew / isos on TN-V11

This approach uses the web browser in the PSP to install ISO / Homebrew in TN-V11. Essentially, you host .xpd files with pointers to the homebrew .zip or ISO. In 3.36, XPD can't load content directly into /GAME, so we download it to the TNV_54321 folder in SAVEDATA instead by using EID ddp#. Here's an example .xpd file:

Code: Select all

[Info]
EID=ddp#
Desc=VHBL ISO
Size=94
Code=TNV_54321
FName=VHBL.ISO
[File]
C=http://mywebserver/vhbl.iso


To make sure the xpd is processed correctly, launch the download from a PHP script:

Code: Select all

<?php
header('Content-disposition: attachment; filename=vhbl.xpd');
header('Content-type: application/x-psp-dstartup');
readfile('vhbl.xpd');
?>
So in this example, the webserver would have:
/vhbl.xpd
/vhbl.php
/vhbl.iso

Open http://mywebserver/vhbl.php in the ePSP browser and the ISO should download into the TNV_54321 savedata folder.

ISOs downloaded this way can be installed directly by TN-V. ZIP based homebrew installers need to be launched from VHBL, onemenu, or extracted with pspfiler after being transferred.

Tested on 3.36.
