    Video: HPR: PS3 Homebrew Network with PKG Installer by Kmeaw

    Today kmeaw has made available a video proof-of-concept of his upcoming HPR, a PS3 homebrew network PKG repository which includes a built-in PKG Installer alongside BM (Backup Manager) Enabler LV2 V5 PKG followed by BM (Backup Manager) Enabler LV2 V6 PKG.

    Download: HPR.PKG Homebrew PKG Repository for PS3 / PS3 View of HPR Version 1 / PS3 View of HPR Version 2 / PS3 View of HPR Version 3

    Here are some POC details thus far from kmeaw via IRC:

    Homebrew PKG Repository (HPR) is currently a WIP but runs on a PS3 with a built-in PKG installer, basically, it is a very simple embedded Web browser that can install PKGs.

    It uses HTTP to download PKG files and supports a small subset of HTML, as the builtin PS3 browser is much better than this one in displaying HTML but it cannot install PKGs although a complex markup for package descriptions isn't necessary.

    Finally, he has also made available a first version of PS3 View of HPR above for those who wish to give it a try!

    now thats going to come in handy, i wonder if it checks the firmware version on the ps3 so it grabs the correct package (signed unsigned etc)

    Good, but I think Deans addition of DemonHades PSX store into his manager is a better choice http://www.ps4news.com/forums/ps3-ha...tml#post359028

    good potential, the problem with these type of Homebrew repositories is the up-keeping, hopefully it becomes big enough.

    Wondering when someone will make a PKG installer over network from your PC.

    Now that'll be a very useful homebrew to have.
