If you are one of the lucky, like me, who have a LocationFree base station, you know what a hassle it is to load up Devhook everytime you want to watch some TV because of its removal from OE firmwares. Well here is how you can revive the lost LocationFree Player in your flash!
As always, I take no responsibility for anything that happens to your PSP. It worked on mine, but it may not on yours for whatever reason.
Here's what you'll need:
- A PSP with 3.02 OE-B (3.03 OE-A could very well work, but has not been tested.)
- A dump of 3.00, 3.01, 3.02, or 3.03 firmware
- PSP Filer
- A LocationFree base station already registered to your PSP
- If not already, put the firmware dump onto your PSP.
- Start PSP Filer.
- Go into flash0 (press start until flash0: is the selected drive).
- Go into the FONT folder.
- Delete "jpn0.pgf".
- Highlight "ltn0.pgf" and press X then O.
- Switch to "ramdisk:".
- Highlight "ltn0.pgf" and press X then R.
- Rename the file "jpn0.pgf".
- Switch back to "flash0:" and press L+R+left to switch to HACKER MODE.
- Go into the FONT folder and press X then /\.
- After the message "1 file copied!" is displayed, go back into the Memory Stick.
- With relatively the same process, copy the following files from the dump into their corresponding folders in the flash:
You may also need to permanently disable Network Update with X-Flash...that might take up enough flash space to upset this process. IDK, it was disabled on my PSP when I did it.
In addition, if your base station is registered to your devulated (emulated with devhook, best word i ever made) firmware, you will also need to copy your system.dreg and system.ireg files to your flash1.
The LocationFree Player will now be accessable on your PSP. Please note that the procedure above deletes the Japanese system font and replaces it with, basically, a dummy file, so Japanese text appears a slight bit warped, but readable for the most part, and a random underscore will occasionally appear in place of some English characters and/or symbols. But it sure beats the sh!t out of starting Devhook every time!
Enjoy, fellow TV addicts!
If any coder is up to making a program that does all of this automatically, go ahead (but it would be nice to see my username in there for partial credit.)
