    FIRST OF ALL SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POST, MODS YOU CAN DELETE POST "T"
    ****************************************************************************

    In the following thread "custom Gameboots on 3.02 OE-A ?" http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=58727

    It is said that :
    Gameboot movies for 3.02 SE must be no greater in size than the original gameboot movie.

    I've looked around the gameboots section and can't find anything under 250 KB. I'm guessing due to size limitation I can't expect to get the coolest gameboot out there, but if anyone can point me to some gameboots that are as small as the original, i'd like to at least feel like I'm customizing my psp...

    If not, is building my own gameboot the only other alternative ?

    Thanks guys !

    I found this in reference to 271SE I am assuming this is what you mean ralphie

    ***************

    Loading Gameboots from your memory stick!

    first off get a decrypted 2.71 dump
    get a hex editor

    with your hex editor look in vsh/module/opening_plugin (of the decrypted dump)
    do ctrl+f and find gameboot.pmf

    flash0:/vsh/resource/gamboot.pmf

    i changed to

    ms0:/PSP/SYSTEM/gameboot.pmf

    start from the F in flash0:/ and rewrite the whole line

    use filer to flash modded opening_plugin to flash0:/vsh/nodle

    this is a great mod for those of you who have jamesbdx's patch and want a custom gameboot.

    if you dont have a memory stick in and load a umd, it will just show a gameboot similar to the 0kb gameboot. and game will still work!

    **************************

    I followed it up to the "I changed it to MS0: etc" but then it lost me can someone give me a "for dummies" explination of those last 2 lines? thx

    and obviously you would use a 3.02 dumped/decrypted firmware rather then 271 but I assume the idea is the same..

    To ralphie2511: Yeah I knew about that mod (by the way thanks EndlessBlack for the mod info) but I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to hex the firmware, modified and flash it.... yeah i know i'm not changing much, but I'm not one to venture, specially when I just barely downgraded my TA-082

    To mmmmmm: YOU ROCK MAN ! thanks for downsizing your boots ! I can't believe my luck, among the ones you compressed, you compressed my favorite one, the dancing jessica alba !!!;)

    Hey you already posted this , you can use bigger gameboots use x-flash it will tell you when your gameboot is too big
    i use 350kb gameboots in 3.02 OE-B no need for downsizing the gameboots

    Well the think is xflash doesn't let me load because as it runs through it's system check it calculates I have 0.1mb of free space and 19.9Mb used out of 20mb in flash0. After I "get the boot" because it's states my file is to big, so I literally can't flash bigger bootscreens. If you didn't have the problem, maybe it had to do with the fact that I'm using a downgraded TA-0.82 ?

    Could it be that the mobo comes with less flash space/ use up more flash space ?

    Just a thought.
