Okey, firstly. This fix does not involve you using PSix, Flashmod or any type of homebrew. What it does, is get rid of those annoying corrupted icons, and it doesnt leave any 'spaces', like the popular fixes mentioned above. Its very simple to do, so you guys shouldnt have too much trouble.
Download the attached Renamer.rar and extract it to your desktop. You will be left with a renamer.exe file.
Plug your PSP in, and set the USB connection on.
Copy over the renamer.exe to your GAME folder on your PSP. (Open up your PSP from My Computer, double click on the PSP folder, then double click on the GAME folder)
Run renamer.exe, and it will rename all the folders inside the GAME folder. It'll look weird, but basically it adds spaces and underscores. ( _ )
Thats it! Unplug your PSP, browse over to the game icon, and voila!
Q) Does this work on Firmware 2.6?
A) This works on all firmware versions of the PSP. Reason for this, is that nothing is actually done via the PSP, its a simple renaming program run from Windows.
Q) Can I run this from Linux?
A) Ya funnily enough, this program isnt so hard to do. Firstly, you'll need wine installed. Once you have that, simply open up a console, then goto the directory where the renamer.exe is located. Then simply type 'wine renamer.exe' (without the quotes), and press enter. Simple :icon_bigg (This has been tested with Ubuntu 5.10 Breezy, but should work on most other distrobutions)
Q) When I try and run a certain homebrew/program, it doesnt work!
A) Below are the reported homebrew(s) that currently dont work with this renaming method. Dont ask me why they dont work, I'm not a PSP coder :P
- Mario Milestone
- PSiX Lite or PSiX Pro. (Note ~ Dont use the renamer if you plan on
using Psix (either lite or pro). It will muck up your icons within Psix, even if u dont rename the psix folder(s) themselves. You have been warned!)
- PSP Theme. (Refuses to load, and then needs to be reinstalled. Thanks to mrbagrat for reporting this)
- Snes9xTyl 0.3 ME (Workaround: Rename the folders from s9xTYLme & s9xTYLme% to snestyl and snestyl%, then run renamer.exe :))
I hope this has helped you as much as it has helped me, and all credits goto mannymix03, since he's the one who gave me this program. So thank him next time you see him :)
Secondly, as there are hoardes upon hoardes of homebrew that is available for the PSP, I cannot keep up with all of them. If a certain homebrew does not work, just send me a PM with its name, and what happens, so I can add it to the guide. Not only will this inform future users, but you also get ur name in teh credits? l33t I know lol.. :Punk:
