PSChannel RC1 PS3 Homebrew Store Source Code by Deroad Out
Following up on his last update, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer deroad has made available the PSChannel RC1 PS3 homebrew store source code for Custom Firmware (CFW) users alongside some build updates below.
To quote: This is my 1st gift for Xmas. Finally I have released PSChannel Source Code.. it's an open source homebrew store ideated and entirely build by me. You can find the source code here (linked above).
To compile it you need: RSXGL and EFL libs for PSL1GHT
Then just run ./build_psc.sh
There is a missing font (SCE-PS3-SR-R-LATIN.TTF) that is not included due legal reason. I want to thanks KaKaRoTo for all his help. (the real gift will be released in the next few days)
Sorry for this delay, but i'm working to release something that works, so i'm fixing some problems that we found yesterday.
From atreyu187: I made a work around (above) for 4.21 REX users. Simply install the unsigned version then go to MM and go to hdd0:/games/PSCHANNEL/USDIR and replace the eboot there with this one and I have resigned and it works fine.
Not the most elegant way but hey it works fine till someone can re-pkg it signed for 4.21 users. The GH version just gives and error every time I try to install.
From STLcardsWS: Here (above) is the eboot i resigned and works on rogero 4.30 v2.03. I was going to make a PKG but the content ID doesn't work with aldostools (tools i was using) its likes the 4 letter 5 numeric format. Replace in: dev_hdd0/games/PSCHANNEL/USRDIR/
fixed some bugs
added some indicators like the number of the homebrew in the category, size of them and version
Added some server commands.
Small bug fix.
'theme' folder, moved inside the USRDIR folder.
Author name will be displayed instead of the "Package" text.
Added force update if an old version.
This version will bring some improvements like allow fast translations of the homebrew. Now you can install a theme or a translation easily and choose the pkg to download. in this way if you are on 3.55, you can install the 3.55 version, if on dex, the DEX/unsigned version, etc..
INSTALL A THEME
To install a Theme for PSChannel, you need to create a zip with the modified edj files and place the zip in the root folder of a usbkey; then you only need to go into ‘info’ and press triangle and it will install the theme. The zip MUST be called ‘psc_theme.zip‘.
TRANSLATE THE HOMEBREW
Translating the homebrew is quite easy. you only need a notepad that reads unix text files and translate it. PSChannel will read lines, so you can use spaces as you want. to install the files, you need to put the Categories.txt and/or Lang.txt into the root folder of a usb and go into ‘info’ and press triangle. it will install all the files.
Added the ability to choose the pkg to be downloaded
Added the ability to install custom themes
Added the ability to install translations
Added USB Scan
Fixed some minor bugs..
Finally, from Opium2k: I've updated the theme to be compatible with PS Channel 1.03, just make sure to install the official version first. It's been a while since I've done any themes or anything PS3 related so after seeing a screenshot of PS Channel's info screen and noticing the line that said "Theme Name: Original PSC Theme" I thought hmm... After a couple of days fumbling around in photoshop and trying to remember how to use EFL this is what I came up with (linked above).
I hope you like it. Thanks to Deroad and Condor for creating .pkg files for me and Kakaroto for helping me remember how to use EFL.
