    Update: Sadly, while editing the tutorial, I messed it up.
    But I will re-make it into a better guide! And please answer the Poll, thank you.

    Also, the PSN-downloaded game title must be a PSP game, not a PS1 game, and the PSN-downloaded game must of course be a larger file than the ISO file you're trying to sign.

    I'm pretty sure one of the Moderators might be able to grab a cached copy of your guide. I however wasn't able to, but it seems as though you want to recreate it into a better version. [​IMG] It'll be a close contest.

    That's okay, because, luckily, I kept a backup on my computer. Two backups, actually. But thanks for the suggestion. [​IMG]

    More people are likely to use that one as the amount of people who won't have any legitimately purchased PSN games at all who want to sign ISO's is likely to eclipse those that do.

    Ditto, I have to agree with xist. You should keep method 2 because a lot of people either won't want to or don't have the option to spend the money to purchase a PSN PSP game, which is sad. Also, as far as I know the Playstation Store is still down so method 1 isn't even an option to people unless they already bought a PSP game from the PSN store

    I voted for keeping method 2. Even though it has some limitations and you can't do it on your psp, it still is a working, free method.

    Finished ~66% of it!
    I finished parts "Installing/Signing ISO Files" and "Installing/Signing EBOOT.pbp Files".

    Sadly, I didn't have the time to finish this up, since there is school tomorrow...

    Anyways, enjoy! [​IMG]

    I was able to edit it, but I think they just closed the "Tutorials & FAQs" forums. [​IMG]

    Yo, I can't even get the fake_np.exe to open. I am on a windows 7 system and I ran a compatiblity test to see if it was needing older settings but I found nothing. Can anyone help me please.

    After you try running fake_np.exe, are there any "added" files in the folder, or after you click fake_np, do you see a window that looks like a Command Prompt window, but closes quickly?

    I don't have Windows 7, so I cannot test it out. Sorry. [​IMG]

    Oh yeah, even though it says it doesn't need any older settings, try making it "XP Compatible" or something like that.

    What version of Windows 7 are you on; as in Home, etc.?

    The Windows 7 I'm running is home. And yes the command box pops up but closes quickly. Also there are not any new files or items at all. This has been hitting on my nerves for the pass few days now.

    Sorry, I still do not know what the problem is. Try checking the settings of it.
