    UPDATED TO V3.0

    Both translation and custom books method only work with rePatch reDux0 v2.71 and lower. On 3.60 you will have to use 0syscall6 plugin for this method to work (needs further testing).

    PCSC80012 doesn't work with 3.0 version of rePatch.

    Full English translation patch

    Installation:
    1. Install base app and patch 1.62
    2. Copy translation patch folder to ux0:/rePatch
    Download

    Changelog:
    v2.0:
    1. Translated all text embedded in pictures.
    2. Various text adjustments and fixes.

    v3.0
    1. Translated Guidebook.
    2. Translated all text in TextListJP.dat except License Agreement.
    3. Major fixes in text alignment.
    4. Application should load English text a little bit faster now.

    How to add your own custom ebooks

    You can add your own books to the app as DLC content. Please note that Reader only support .epub format with .png or .jpg files as pages.
    Reader also support .epub files with built-in navigation table, BGM and AV content.

    Converting plaintext PDFs to .epub compatible with Reader:
    Use the following tools:
    -CbxConverter and install GhostScript as well.
    -Resize your images so that the size of each image will not exceed 1.20MB.
    -Use the Kindle Comic Converter tool to convert to EPUB (Make sure stretch/upscale is unchecked). If you are converting manga, you can check Manga mode to have rtl page progression in your .epub.
    (Instruction by MatNyaga)

    Adding books to the app:

    1. Rename your book to "book.epub"
    2. Download DLC template
    3. Edit cover.jpg, back.jpg and spine.jpg of the book to your liking
    4. Edit metadata.xml. This file contains all information about your book (title, author, publisher, description etc.). This can be used for in-app sorting and filters
    5. Put your custom book.epub in the book02 folder
    6. Rename "PCSC80012(DLC)" to "PCSC80012" and put it in ux0:/reAddcont
    That's it! You can also add more books by simply adding "bookXX" (where "XX" is number of the book) folders to ux0:/reAddcont/PCSC80012/00000000BLKSTOK1
    Do not use "book01" folder name to avoid conflicts with existing PSN DLC book.
    To delete custom book simply delete corresponding "bookXX" folder.

    How to add more than 97 books:

    If you have reached book limit inside a single DLC (book99), you can create more 00000000BLKSTOKX folders, where X is the number of the fake DLC. This folders should have the same structure as the original one.

    I get the App, put it where it should be ( ux0:app/ ), then also put the Patch and Addcont where they should be, then I hit Triangle, and Select the Refresh LiveArea. Says Refreshed 0 Items.
    On 3.65 Enso

    I assume you download it on PC, than transfer it to Vita? This app can not be installed that way. The only way to install it is either via download from japanese PS Store or from PKGj.

    Well, I think the Update took. That is because I did it Manually instead of with NPS Browser

    Edit: Yup. Have to Unpack/Decrypt everything Manually. But now the DLC is not coming up for some reason.

    I got the App, and the Update working. No DLC Folder however. Now when I replace the TextListJP.dat File, I get a C2-12828-1 Error

    You don't have to decrypt anything in the original app folder. It should look like this:
    ux0:app/pcsc80012(original app, encrypted and untouched)
    ux0: patch/pcsc80012(original patch, encrypted and untouched)
    ux0:rePatch/ (should contain PCSC80012 folder from 1st link only)
    ux0:reAddcont/pcsc80012/00000000blkstok1/bookXX(this is your custom books, 2nd link is template for that)

    Seriously wish there was a App or something where Users can take all their EPubs and get them made to fit the Requirements of this Reader. Especially if Users have MANY Books.

    I have installed the application fine and it works, as soon as I download the patch the application fails to lunch with an error message.

    Error code? Do you download the app on PC or directly on the Vita?

    Also, CBZ can be easily converted to EPUB, formats are very similar.
