PatchSFO Tool
Written by Administrator    Wednesday, 15 November 2006
This program is used to patch the EBOOT files to make them compatible with firmware 2.80. This application goes through all of the applications installed in MS0:/PSP/GAME/ and patches them so that they will start with xLoader.

This was a tool that we used during testing and we thought it would be useful to users, the source is provided as well so that if anyone wants to build this into an nice application, you can do.

It will presumably also work for making homebrew compatible with Dark Alex's HEN C, although we haven't tested that to confirm it.

Source is included in case anyone wants to extend it and make it prettier.

  PatchSFO is used to make it so that the PSP's standard menu (XMB) will recognise homebrew as being a valid application, otherwise you get the 'corrupted data' icon. The XMB will still fail to start the homebrew, but it makes it think that it's a bit more valid than it really is. This then means that the XMB will let you try to start the homebrew with xLoader. So basically it makes sure that anything that runs with eLoader can also be attempted with xLoader.

It can't change homebrew that wouldn't normally be able to run on your current firmware version.

It can also patch some of the official downloadable demos so that they run on 2.80, which can be useful too.

  Where do you install this

Fanjita said:

  Juan: Make a new folder on your memory stick, called \psp\game\patchsfo, and copy the EBOOT.PBP file into there.

If you're having trouble installing it, you can always grab it via Installotron, which supports it.
