Thanks for the info.
I was hoping it would be as easy as extracting the vpk to it corresponding app id directory, which was my first attempt, however this does not apply the icon to the home screen (which is the step that has me burnt out).
I'm currently disassembling the VitaShell source to get a better idea of The FloW's approach to vpk installation (a lot to go through :) but will be informative none the less)

I was looking around for the henkaku app source, but could only find the offline installer. Are you able to link me to the originals source?
Why disassemble it? The code's here: https://github.com/henkaku/VitaShell/bl ... nstaller.c

You also need to build and link libScePromoterUtil_stub: https://github.com/henkaku/VitaShell/tr ... ibpromoter

VitaShell version is a bit different https://bitbucket.org/TheOfficialFloW/v ... ew-default (in how it unzips the file I think)

tldr: unzip files from the .vpk to a temporary directory (ux0:ptmp), generate head.bin (use the provided function), call
libScePromoterUtil_stub function to install the bubble.

Hey @xyz,

"disassemble" was the wrong term to use, i just meant i was going through the source piece by piece to rule out unrelated code. sorry for that confusion.
Thank you very much for those links, very helpful indeed. the older henkaku vitashell code was much clearer to follow for me.

i'm now back on track :-)

hey valentinbreiz,

I'm still struggling with the package installation. (very new to vitaSDK)
All other areas are fine, but without the ability to install vpk's then there's not much point to this application. ;)

hopefully i can get it written an running soon.


[*] vpk installer completed.

It would be great if you add PSP homebrews option too.

do you have source code published somewhere? I'm sure people from #vitasdk would help

Hey bud,

vpk installer is written and running, thanks to VHBB developer: devnoname120.
We're just finishing off the main server database, database search and general bug fixes.
I will create a Vita HomeBrew Browser (VHBB) forum under Homebrew >> Henkaku on release.

;)
