    passing this along from Fluff, coordinator of PSIX. taken from
    http://www.naoneo.com/

    Code:
    Non-destructive menu changing 3:59pm, September 17th, 2005 ~ entry 14 (13 is bad)
    
    Okay as promised here is the full tutorial on changing both your menu, and your version number, without touching your lflash.
    Some thing to note, are things you will need.
    
    - Hex editor (for windows users, i would recommend Hex workshop).
    - Psar dumper (and a data.psar from a 1.50 update).
    - a v1.50 firmware psp (it would work for 1.00 but this technique uses humma's loader which is designed for 1.50s).
    - UMD Emulator 0.8, by Humma kavula.
    - Some common sense.
    
    Due to the nature of this modification it is important that you do not share your modified files over the internet, as you could get in trouble.
    Okay, let's begin.
    
    1) File aquisition.
    Retreive the following files, depending on your dump method.
    FW Dumper :
    ms0:/flash0/vsh/resource/topmenu_plugin.rco
    ms0:/flash0/vsh/resource/sysconf_plugin.rco
    
    Psar dumper :
    ms0:/OUT/topmenu_plugin.rco
    ms0:/OUT/sysconf_plugin.rco
    
    2) File editing and hex locations.
    topmenu_plugin.rco

    Text you may replace

    An advanced note on the version string, you may replace the text "An internal error has occurred" as well as "Version %1" keeping it a part of the same string, and it will display in the version information page.
    If you wish to do that, do it as follows.
    
    V.e.r.s.i.o.n. .%.1.....A.n. .i.n.t.e.r.n.a.l. .e.r.r.o.r. .h.a.s. .o.c.c.u.r.r.e.d

    For editing the RCO files, it is VASTLY important that you only replace the text with your own, and not actually Add more, or remove any, if you want to replace "memory stick" with "hello", change the last letters to spaces and they wont show, but it will work.
    Additionally, some of the text contains ™'s, you can place them in yourself by adding "! directly after the letter, rather than skipping each . in the hex. to demonstrate.
    
    .M.e.m.o.r.y. .S.t.i.c.k."!.
    004D0065006D006F0072007900200053007400690063006B00222100
    .M.e.o.w!". . . . . . . .. .
    004D0065006F00772122002000200020002000200020002000002000
    
    It's very important to change the ™ you moved, from 2221 to 00--.
    This taken into account, once you have edited your files..
    
    3) Installation
    install Humma Kavula's UMD Emulator 0.8, and copy the two edited files to the following locations on your memory stick.
    
    ms0:/F0/vsh/resource/topmenu_plugin.rco
    ms0:/F0/vsh/resource/sysconf_plugin.rco
    
    4) Finnished!
    Once done, boot up UMD Emulator, and enable Flash0 emulation, and start an iso, and poof!, it will return to the PSP dash, with your custom menu labels showing!
    
    Hope you guys enjoyed this.

    the effort put into doing this isnt worth the reward to me.

    when they make an easier program to do all of it maybe i will do this.

    it might not be worth it to a lot of people. back when i was using win2000
    i used resource hacker to edit almost every possible message string to
    whatever i wanted. it was neat for like a week, but then i wanted it all
    back the way it was originally. in that case i just left it the other way, as
    i didn't feel like doing all that tedious editing work again.

    i changed a few things to try it out and it works. i didn't take me very
    long to change them, but getting them to show up on the psp might not
    be worth it like you said. you'd have to boot UMDE to redirect the flash
    access everytime your psp was reset...

    but if you're a total customization freak like some people i know then
    it will pay off.
