Fanjita and AlexRichter have just released their long anticipated automatic homebrew installer (as the title suggests, for the PSP3D Ultimate Goodies And Cash Giveaway contest), which utilizes the PSP-Homebrew.eu database, in order to grab the latest homebrew games and applications, download, and install them to your PSP, without the need for a PC intermediate. Though it is an early version of the application, and some of the presentation is a bit rough (and, obviously, the complete library of homebrew games is not install-o-tron-able yet), Install-o-tron makes for an outstanding tool which simplifies the process of installing homebrew to the PSP. No longer do you have to mess with placing EBOOTs here, folders there, etc; Install-o-tron does all the hard work for you with its .ZIP interpreting algorithm (alongside an hbinfo.txt, which is what seperates Install-o-tron compatible homebrew from those not yet compatible). It even smart installs homebrew that is only compatible with your specific firmware version!
Install-o-tron introduces a simple, new addition to homebrew packaging, which makes it easier for both humans and computers to install homebrew (which Fanjita and AlexRichter recommend for all developers to follow). This initial release supports a selection of popular homebrew, however, in the near future, the list will be expanded dramatically, ultimately allowing you to install any homebrew from the database with ease. In the future, it will also come bundled with all eLoader releases, so there should be no need to manually install it.
