January 23, 2011 // 8:08 pm - 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!

HPR is not yet live and will send you back to the XMB until the project gets underway, hopefully soon.

If possible the PS3 Model Detection app should be integrated at start up to only bring up files compatible with your ps3 model and firmware.

HKR should act like Cydia... and we need one like Installous... so with combination of HKR + Installous variant... oh yeah.. that will rock!!!

This is an awesome concept, the ps3 equivalent of wii's homebrew channel.

Also, thanks for the attachment op!

I think I see his point, by making it into a one step process even though making it independent from the patcher... but I was wondering how if it wasn't incorporated into the manager release.

You missed the point, he meant that the loader automatically loads the latest lv2 patch, by linking to it.

The latest multiman already has this built in... it allows you to run the patch externally... there's a property setting in the ini file that allow you to load custom payload at loading time, just set that to 0, then you can load external patcher... before using the manager.
