Hi, say hello to version v0.5 with theme manager, and an easier way to adding themes (now you can just throw the theme with any name you want in ms0:/themes)
To create screenshots for your themes:
--Take the screenshot of the theme
--Open it with paint and click Image then Resize/Skew
--In there set to resize both horizontal and vertical to 70%, click OK
--Then click File then Save As, and save it as a PNG
--Then place that file as screenshot.png in the theme's folder
Features:XMB Theme Cycler V0.5
This program is designed to work in 3.30/3.40 OE firmware and
above, i held no responsability if this program bricks your
psp (almost impossible in OE).
This program will change your theme everytime you reboot your
psp, it has unlimited slots for themes. It can handle all the
rco's that can be modified up to now (Please tell me if i'm
missing any and i will add support for it). It now also includes
a new theme manager to flash manually your themes if you don't
want to use the cycler. (It doesn't need the theme folders to
be named in a particular way, so you can just throw your themes
to the themes folder)
1-Copy all the folders to the root of your memory stick, if
you have any other program in /PSP/GAME/BOOT it will be
overwritten. If you install it in another folder other
than /PSP/GAME/BOOT such as /PSP/GAME150/BOOT and enable
the autorun feature, you will not be able to get in the XMB
and your PSP will freeze.
-JUST COPY THE CONTENTS OF THIS ZIP TO THE ROOT OF YOUR
2-To set it to change your XMB every time the PSP reboots go
to recovery mode and enable the Autorun feature.
--By default this program will start in the manager mode.
--Hold L button at startup to abort flashing.
--Hold O button at startup to enter configuration.
--In configuration use X to select and up down keys to
--Everytime you boot your PSP or every month (depending on your
setting) a new theme will be flashed.
--To put your own themes simply throw the theme in a folder with
the theme's name to ms0:/themes/ (it can't be easier)
In ms0:/themes/ there should be no folders other than
the ones wich correspond to your themes.
If you have any question please PM at QJ.net forums to

release post or send me a mail to (if you really need it you will
read the readme from the download)

Files it can flash: (Requests accepted)
-- In my past releases i received alot of complaints about why i didn't include the original sony files. I don't include them because it's illegal to do so, you have to get them by yourself, or if you run theme cycler with the original theme installed, it will make a backup of it.
-- If you have 3.40 then you need themes for 3.40, if you use one for another version it WILL NOT work.
-- You need to know the basics of flashing before using any flashing progams. Also, learn how to use the recovery mode before flashing anything.
-- To fix a semi-brick goto recovery mode and enable auto-boot. Reboot PSP and hold O, the configuration mode will load, then press "flash backup theme" and voila semi-brick fixed!
-- The README file is your friend, take a look at it before using.
-- if you want both autorun and the manual Cycle Theme function you need to set the 1.5 kernel to GAME since the boot folder has to be strictly at GAME, not GAME150.
-- DO NOT RENAME THE BOOT FOLDER, AND IT SHOULD BE LOCATED IN THE GAME FOLDER, NOT GAME150, NOT GAME340, IF YOUR ARE GOING TO USE AUTOBOOT.
