After about two years away from the PSP homebrew scene, I needed to do some heavy searching in order to be able to catch up and find out what was out there.
I decided to browse through a file library and download everything in it, keeping only the latest version of each release. As I went along, it occurred to me to put together a collection that I could share with others comprised of everything from 2008.
You can download the collection from the link below:
Or from Demonoid if you have an account, for more seeds:
In cases of multi-releases designed for 1.50 homebrew PSPs and 3.xx custom firmware PSPs, I have included only the CFW version of the file. Anything marked as being for a particular custom firmware, 4.01 or 3.xx for example, is compatible with later versions, such as 5.00 M33-4.
Anything designed for a 3.xx kernel or higher * should * run on a Slim PSP, as well as any file marked with Slim at the end. All files should be compatible with the original PSP Phat/PSP-1000 unless marked as Slim Only.
Only one version of each game or application is included, unless there is another version significantly different (e.g., having Slim support in one release and Phat in another, or being an Unofficial mod version).
Unofficial releases are marked with a UO in the filename.
These files were downloaded almost exclusively from the list of downloads on psp.brewology.com, except where the files from that site were corrupted, and at the end of 2008, where I drew from multiple sources to make sure as much as possible was included.
The library consists of the following:
103 miscellaneous applications
53 operating systems/shells
50 audio programs/files
45 graphics programs/mods
44 development/programming tools
35 PDA applications
24 game applications
24 theme creation tools
23 video applications
22 file transfer/management programs
20 educational files
18 recovery tools
13 communications programs
12 internet portals
8 security/encryption apps
2 emulator packs and 1 Slim-friendly 3.xx homebrew pack
The library contains a total of 1,254 games, applications, and themes, and is 6.4 GB in size.
This collection can fit onto one Dual-Layer DVD, two regular DVDs, or 10 CDs.
This is not intended to be a * complete * library of all PSP homebrew files released in 2008, but it is as nearly complete as one person can hope to do with limited time to devote to compiling it.
*Proof of concept files
*Obsoleted custom firmwares, loaders, xploits, patches incorporated in later releases
*Complete themes set
*Official game demos from Sony, etc.
*Source code only releases
