Sadly that does nothing.

What exactly is different about your version?

only make a new pboot with the icon0 and info file from old pboot of ark and the new data.psp file from qwikrazor's new pboot

first u should make a new basegame bubble, and change the name of ark_01234 folder, for example ark_12345, and put this new folder to ux0-pspemu-psp-savedata, at last just change the 2 txt file to make them direct to the right folder or game: ms0:/PSP/SAVEDATA/ARK_12345/ARK.BIN in savepath.txt of the new base game folder, ms0:/ISO/name of ur game.iso/cso in bootpath.txt of the ark_12345 folder.

From the readme:
Spoiler
Here is a modded ARK-2 to auto boot whatever game or homebrew you have configured.

Copy PBOOT.PBP and SAVEPATH.TXT to base game folder,
which should be located in ms0:/PSP/GAME/ (that's ux0:pspemu/PSP/GAME/).
Then use CMA/QCMA to backup the base game to your PC,
then restore the game back to your Vita.

You should now see the base game with an ARK icon,
or to whatever icon you have changed in PBOOT.PBP,
you can also update the title for PBOOT.PBP.

For each game you want to auto boot, you will need to use a different name for the savedata folder,
so you will need to update the path in SAVEPATH.TXT to point to the savedata folder.

For example:
ms0:/PSP/SAVEDATA/THIS_GAME_SAVE_FOLDER/ARK.BIN
or:
ms0:/PSP/SAVEDATA/THAT_HOMEBREW_SAVE_FOLDER/ARK.BIN

Included save, ARK_01234, has a file called BOOTPATH.TXT,
there you can store the path of the game that you want to auto boot.

Here is an example path for an ISO (or CSO):
ms0:/ISO/THE_MOST_AWESOME_GAME_IN_THE_WORLD.cso

or for homebrew (or PS1 game, without sound):
ms0:/PSP/GAME/SOME_AWESOME_HOMEBREW/EBOOT.PBP

it doesn't matter where the game or homebrew is located,
as long as you have the correct paths, it'll launch.

To boot back in the ProShell menu,
hold L trigger + R trigger + Down + Cross, and keep R trigger held.

Do NOT use ux0: path in these files, only use ms0:.

Do not use ux0: path in these files, only use ms0:.

Thanks as always I am always glad to see your work and dedication to the PSP. I hope it never stops. Can'\ you share the source code for this with it being using ARK's open source license as I would like to look at the magic you do a little closer please.

Hi could you tell me what you use to extract pboot contents and rebuild cause I'm having issues with older tools rebuilding them and pboot not working. All is working great on 3.60 vita with multiple forwarder bubbles made now and I've changed the bubbles icons and game name with modifying app.db. What I'm wanting to do is do backups on 3.60 vita to a 3.63 vita but all backups will display ark bubble icon and ark game title, there's no way to modify the app.db on 3.63 (I don't think) . So if I change each pboot icon first then do the cma backup and restore to 3.63 all should be good. Thanks

pbpunpacker to dump and repack the pbp and HxD to edit the name in the sfo since it lets you use a longer string and doesn't corrupt the sfo like the built in one likes to do.

I think we all did it right. I use pbp unpacker to open the pboot.pbp and it seems that the icon0.png file got corrupted and the pboot.pbp provided by steven is good and no errors. maybe you can look at it and change the icon0.png file. I am sure everything will be run smoothly

I have already changed the icon0 in my own attempt since im sure not having none of that default madness, It is not the problem.

I am currently working on an installer, plus bubble duper, and game/homebrew selector to setup up the bubbles. it should be done within this week, maybe today if I am not too busy.
