All Install is a program that can download and install a number of things for the PSP. It can install homebrew (into game categories folders), plugins (automatically edit your vsh.txt, game.txt, and/or pops.txt), themes, gameboots and version.txt's, etc.

This was one of the contest entries for the PSP Genesis Competition 2011.


  • Downloads files from the forum.
  • Able to download and upload content on the PSP without using PC.
  • Customization.
  • File browser.
  • Text editor.

  • Unzip up to 5 ZIP files at the same time.
  • Calculator.

Copy the AllInstall folder to ms0:/PSP/GAME/, or to the folder you normally put homebrew in.

User guide

Below is the complete list of features of All Install. The examples start from the first screen of the program, the one that says Download on it:

  • Download something. Take you to a download page via web browser (download items into your PSP/COMMON folder).
  • Install homebrew, plugins, skins, etc and delete the ZIP/RAR afterwards.
  • Install homebrew into a specific folder (such as a game categories folder).
  • Unzip/unrar a file.
  • Switch save profiles. Helpful for games that allow only 1 save.
  • Copy files/folders up to 5 items at a time (Select Files mode for managing large amount of files).
  • Delete files/folders.
  • Create a new folder.
  • Dump a UMD to your memory stick
  • Hide/un-hide all of your content.
  • Install a gameboot to flash (note: The gameboot needs to be in your seplugins/RCO folder first).
  • Install CXMB.
  • Manually install a plugin.
  • Install the version.txt (note: The version.txt it installs is located at InstallRoot/vs/vr.txt. You can edit it, or update it if you need to).
  • Install the Recovery Menu Fix (aka 5.00 M33-7). This is only needed on PSP's that have 5.00 M33-6 firmware, and it fixes a small bug that only occurred on my Slim PSP.
  • Create game150.txt. This is only for users who want to use plugins with older homebrew in the game150 folder.
  • View a text file (note: pspWrite will use a default settings configuration. If you want to change the default settings permanently, you can create your own default config file).

You can find an extensive guide about how to upload contents from the readme file or you can visit the official forum for more information.

A list of downloads can be found here.


Be careful with this program, because some features shouldn't be used with certain motherboards/firmwares (example: there are options to install a gameboot or version.txt to flash). If you don't know what something does, please research it first.

Download all items to the /PSP/COMMON/ folder. The file browser starts in the COMMON folder by default (if you delete the COMMON folder while All Install is running, the file browser may show an error message until you restart the program. Press Start in the main menu to restart).

After extracting files or installing certain things, the program will reboot itself (the screen will go black for a few seconds, then the All Install main menu will appear again). This is completely normal, so don't panic.

The UMD dumper will only dump game UMD's. It won't work with movie or music UMD's.

Seplugins don't work while All Install is running, but when you exit the program they will be working again (this is to make sure that a plugin doesn't conflict with any of the All Install functions).

New version

  • File browser now lists files in alphabetical order.
  • You can copy and/or delete whole directories.
  • Both zip and rar files can be extracted.
  • Improved the plugin installer, and also created a new way to install plugins (clicking X on a prx file gives you the option of adding it to your vsh.txt, game.txt, and/or pops.txt).
  • Created a new mode for the file browser that allows you to select an almost unlimited amount of files, and then copy or delete them. Tested using 230 individual files (which came from 20 different directories), and copied them all to a new directory.
  • Created a color config file that allows you to change the text colors of the program. (Useful when making a custom skin).
  • MANY bug fixes and other improvements.
