This guide will help you Customize YOUR font on your psp. This method is 100% Non-Brickable, as long as you dont mix up flash 1 with flash0!!!! It uses some programs from Skylark and Freeplay. So a great thanks to them
Things You will need
- 3.03 OE-C
- font folder from flash0
- Hex Editor - XVI32
- a Computer
- a Psp
- Tiff Font Hacker by SkyLark and Freeplay
- BirdMan's Font pack V11
Things you should watch out for is the fact that this will ONLY work if you ALWAYS have the memory stick inside. If you take out your memory stick. And boot up. It will give you a BSOD, and reset your settings.
Lets get started
Step 1 - Enter Recovery mode. Go to Advanced -> Flash0 USB Toggle.
DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING, THIS 1 STEP CAN BRICK YOUR PSP. AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW MY EXACT STEPS YOU WILL NOT BRICK
Step 2 - COPY your font folder to your desktop. DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING
Step 3 - Go to "My Computer" right click on Removable Disk X (x is your psp flash0 drive) And click EJECT This is to ensure nothing gets corrupted. Then go to your psp and click on Flash0 USB Toggle again, It should say Disabled.
Step 4 - Exit the Recovery Menu
Step 5 - Completely Shut your psp Down again, Enter the Recovery Mode again. This time go to Advanced -> Flash1 USB Toggle.
Step 6 - Go to "My Computer" Enter the Flash1 Drive. NOW go and COPY your registry over to your desktop. Eject the Flash1 Drive. On your psp Hit the Flash1 USB Toggle AGAIN, so it disables. Exit Recovery to get to your XMB.
Step 7 - Go to the Computer. And Open HEX EDITOR. Open system.dreg and change EVERY instance of flash0:/font to ms0:/fontmod There is usually only 1. Save it.
Step 8 - Go to the Tiff Font hack folder and you should see a parsedreg patcher folder or something. Extract it. And copy your EDITED registry into this folder. Hit the FIXUPDREG3 file, a quick DOS screen will pop up and the close itself automatically. This should patch the registry
Step 9 - In the XMB Enable the USB. Next copy the font folder from your desktop (which came from Flash9) to the ROOT of the memory stick, and rename the folder to fontmod. (HEX EDITING is case sensitive. SO make sure you are NOT capitalized
Step 10 - Shut DOWN the PSP. go to the Recovery menu and Enable Flash1 usb toggle Copy the edited registry over to Flash1, REWRITIING the existing registry. MAKE SURE your are NOT at flash0, but at flash1
Step 11 - When you turn on your psp, it will bring you back to the XMB. IF you were NOT successful. You will get a BSOD. Try again.
Step 12 - If you did NOT get the BSOD then continue. Enable USB TOGGLE from the XMB. Next go to the fontmod folder on the ROOT of your memory stick. Next search for a nice and fitting font that you like from Birdman's Font Pack V11. Copy LTN0.PGF into the fontmod folder rewriting the existing ltn0.pgf. When you completely reboot your psp. You should get the NEW FONT
Step 13 - Post Results and have fun.
Note: if memory stick removed, a BSOD will be forced. and fonts back to original
I made this guide because i am an Anti Flashing Fanatic. IM A PARANOID at flashing, and i am afraid that i will customize TOO MUCH that my flash0 dies out on me XD. So i created this guide to comply with these needs.
If you brick from entering Flash0 and deleting something, YOU are responsible NO ONE ELSE! NOT ME, NOT THE DEVS, NO ONE BUT YOURSELF.
Special Thanks to
- Booster (usb flashin)
- HarleyG (Recovery)
