PS Vita DB Theme installer v2.0 released
Redsquirrel has recently released the new version of his very handy tool PS Vita DB Theme Installer, in its 2.0 version. According to Redsquirrel website, the changelog is the following:
- Added a new installation mode compatible with every Firmware < 3.55, so even for firmwares < 3.30 that did not support the old “Official Theme” installation mode.
- The new installation method will let the user to edit any existing system app icon and title too.
- Ability to import the icons filenames directly from a theme.xml file even for the new installation method.
- Support for custom XML keys in the theme.xml in the new installation method: in addition to the official themes XML keys (m_browser, m_video, m_music, m_ps3Link, m_party, m_trophy, m_near, m_hostCollabo, m_ps4Link, m_friend, m_email, m_calendar, m_message, m_parental, m_camera, m_settings) the program will search for other custom XML keys such as m_store (PSStore app icon), m_maps(Maps app icon), m_package (Package Installer app icon), m_cross (Cross Controller app icon), m_panoramic (Panoramic Camera app icon)and m_welcome (Welcome Park app icon).
So from now on custom themes authors can add these XML keys in their custom theme’s theme.xml file to support their automatic installation in old firmwares with this program.
- The program now will automatically recognize if the imported APP.DB supports “Official theme” installation method or not. If not then it will automatically disable the specific tab to avoid that users can make any mistake.
- Added a function to check for available updates for the program at startup.
Note about email server issues:
I know that my website’s email server, used by the app to send its emails, is not very efficient. It’s a basic shared web hosting, so network errors and delayed delivery occur very often. Unfortunatly, I tried even with other free famous and more efficient SMTP servers such as GMail or Yahoo Mail, but they block very soon the email account for “suspicious activity” when you try to use the program on different IPs. In next versions I’m going to let the user to configure his own email account to send emails so as to resolve any issue definitely.
What does this mean? Big things, like firmwares below 3.30 being now supported, being able to edit any existing system app icon and title, automatic update check and more!
