Gamebootools (Spanish) is a homebrew developed by __QAT. It allows user to change the gameboot and its opening_plugin.rco (file that carries the gameboot runtime) using only the PSP.

It also has other functions such as freeing up space on Flash0 or USB connections.

This is an entry from the Scenery Beta 2009 (PSP Applications).

Installation

Note: Flashers or features that require alterations in the flash of the device can brick your PSP. Please backup your important data accordingly and use with caution.

Copy the GAME folder to the root of the Memory Stick, which should look like this

ms0:/PSP/GAME/Gameboot-tools
ms0:/PSP/GAME/Copy

User guide

This version of Gameboot-tools allows you to have 10 gameboots to choose from saved on the Memory Stick.

Theme names setup

Open the gameboots in ms:/PSP/GAME/Gameboot-tools/GAMEBOOT/.

  • Within that folder there are 10 folders for each of the gameboots, the first one serves as a template, and the rest come with the original for you to modify.
  • Inside each of the gameboots folders it needs a gameboot and its opening_plugin.rco.

On the other hand, inside the GAMEBOOTS folder you will find a text file called Gameboots names.txt that contains 10 single lines of Gameboot "Original".

  • Where it says "Original" you can replace them with names of the Gameboot themes that go in that positions.
  • Once the gameboots are correctly placed you can select them from the homebrew.
