I present to you my vision of FreeShop on PSP:
FREESTOR
logo1.png


This app allows download and install PSP .pkg games directly via WiFi, without PC.
Download : https://github.com/GorGylka/FREESTOR
-use LTrigger / Rtrigger / Dpad Up / Dpad Down to choose the game, to choose sorting method, Press X to install the game
-PSP Wifi Does not support new Encryption Standarts, so to use it, change Wifi encryption from WPA2-PSK to WPA-PSK , WEP or just disable password in your wifi router settings
-Maximum download speed is about 500-600kb/s due to outdated PSP Wifi module. Downloading and installing a 900MB game takes approximately 1 hour
-PSP Street not supported at all
FREESHOP is under active development, but the main functions are already working.
______________
Tested on PSP 3000 6.61 PROMOD-C2p∞


Whats NEW:
v0.012 -PSP Go Support, Broken Japanese/ASIA game names fixed
v0.011 -One app for everything. No more need to run Game_installer to install.
v0.010 -Download speed increased from 250 kb to 450-550 kb/s. Loading faster by 55%! (Thanks to RealYoti)
v0.004 -Added PS1 Library

I've installed it in a Psp 2000 ARK4 and it works perfectly! The only bug I have noticed is some japanese games titles appeared as gibberish.

i think the quickiest fix to solve the problem with garbage instead of Japanese characters is transtale it to romaji manually, cause in standard psp_sdk does not have this characters.
not the prettiest way , but definitely working

While this doesn't contain any pirated files, it does contain files with links for every PSP game from Sony's servers. I'm kinda surprised this is being allowed here, or on GitHub. It would seem to me like it would have to do something different, like how the 3DS freeshop didn't include any pirated content, but needed title keys (which were commonly loaded from a separate website) in order to work. I could be wrong, but this appears to be a very similar situation.

in fact, I'm just too lazy to do sorting using the PSP Specs and C language, it was much easier for me to do it beforehand in excel. if Sony block it on github, I'll re-made it without tsv tables, but it seems that Sony doesn't care about PSP at all

I've tried it with PSP 1000 ARk-4 and it works too!
However, I'd like to report a couple of issues:
- The depackager app has a typo: it appears as !Game Installer in the XMB
- The new release keeps downloading the game present in url.txt (in this case, Luxor). If you erase url.txt, the app halts after connecting to network.

Great!
-I know that the application is named with an exclamation mark at the beginning. I tried to make it the first one in the standard sort. I don't understand how PSP sorts games by default,i will fix it in new release.
- I fixed a bug with loading one game in version 0.003. checked on 0.004-everything works fine

This app looks pretty great, except that it doesn't support ef0:\ pathnames. While I have a memory stick in my Go, it would be a big improvement to allow the user of a Go to decide what drive to install to.
