A good news for Ver <= 1.5 owners.
I do not know if this is already pumped up stuff but I'm very used to it
and I didn't find much about this around the web. Of cause I didn't scrawl all the forums.
It may be much useful, so I'll give it an own thread:
It's about viewing HTML documents offline with Fired-Up Browser (from ISO). You wouldn't need any connection further.
I found a way to do this, making me able to load every supported HTML file directly from the Memorystick (yeah, with iso fired-up :icon_wink ).
It took me a few time of researching and experiencing the way how to change the file content from this ISO-File,
so I thought it would be quite useful to post it somewhere.
How to do:
I'm not an expert, so using a normal hex-editor for doing changes directly on the ISO-file should do.
Of cause, having an ISO-compressor might be more comfortable. First I had to find out the way how to call the memorystick from fired-up browser.
I found something around "file://fatms0:/" for the root directory of your memorystick. (instead of the normal "http://...")
1.Use the hex-editor and open the ISO-file (e.g. web browser.iso).
Finding the start.html wouldn't be much difficult by using
the search-function of your editor.
2.Search for string "http://www", you will find the content of the start.html
Of cause would be useful to understand HTML. You'll see the six links of the start page such like
"www.psp-forums.org/portal/deutsch.php". The complete link will be called with
What's "proc://connect/"? It will later force a connection in the programm.
So if you want to view offline HTML without the use of a connection leave it.
3.A link to "home.html" on the root of your MS would look like this: href="file://fatms0:/home.html"
But be careful, the number of characters within the "" must remain the same (I'm not sure), so it would be:
href="file://fatms0:/home.html " (leaving free-spaces)
4.Now calling "Deutsch" ingame you might open your placed "home.html" (or whatever you want).
You will be also able to insert any other web-site link.
But if you want further go online (of cause) you should last at least one link with the "proc://connect/" before
to force a connection.(useful with "http://" call) I think it could also be placed in every other local HTML-file.
Of cause, don't forget to save the changed file.
It's also strange but the combination of leaving "proc://connect/" and using "file://" call might only work
with the Francais link. But this might have been caused having the wrong file-system on my MS (fat32) which
later also caused the damage of most of my data and savegames.
(Using "proc://connect/file://" will work almost fine but only if you have a connection.)
Hope this was some helpful information while there is no professional browser yet for firmware =< Vers. 1.5
Maybe not all will be able proceduring this but maybe an adapted version of fired-up browser may appear in outer net.
For me it would have been a good solution. If there are better ones, let me know!
But note: this is only an instruction and it would be not legal to change the file content
of a copyrighted gamefile.

So long, best greedings from Germany
(where wok-sports goes for olympia) :mrgreen:
EDIT: But why?: doesn't this fit with the Homebrew and Hacks Discussion?
Can anyone tell me why it was so quickly removed there?
