FreeStore - PS3 Homebrew Database with FTP Transfer Utility


Sponsored Links
227w ago - Update: FreeStore v1.3 PS3 Homebrew Database with FTP Transfer Utility is now available with changes detailed HERE followed by FreeStore v1.4 which includes a bug fix.

I'm working on a PC utility application called FreeStore v1.0, basically it's an updated database of the latest PlayStation 3 homebrew releases.

You simply select the item you want and it will be installed onto your PS3 directly.

Download: FreeStore v1.0

Key features:
• Automatically find the latest homebrew.
• Built-in FTP client allows installing to PS3 without touching a USB drive.
• Is n00b friendly!

To-do:
• Add filters to give more specific results
• Include a HEX database
• Include App/Hex submission form
• Make a pretty interface ^^

How to use:
1. Run a PS3 FTP Server on your PS3.
2. Using the IP Address displayed on-screen,
connect to your PS3 using the FTP dialoge above.
3. Select the item you want to download, then press the "Download" button.
4. Restart your PS3 and your item will appear in the 'Game' category of the XMB.

Enjoy!

Online version of FreeStore released. Simply navigate to freestore-ps3.com to download and install the latest homebrew without restarting your PS3. (USB Drive Needed)

I have also made an update to the FreeStore PC app but it's currently needing a big re-write to deal with the USB method. As soon as everything is stable, I'll post the update here.

So now I have an icon for Snes9x (for some reason it has the FreeStore logo instead of the Snes9x one, but that's ok with me), but when I try to launch it all it says is "No installable packages" (or something like that). What am I doing wrong?


That bug has been fixed in 1.0.4, I don't know why it's not updating but you can use the attached zip version instead. The FreeStore logo only appears with the install, afterwards everything is the same as installing the pkg from a usb drive.

Note: This release is only a basic bug fix and is not news-worthy. I'm also working on an OS X version of FreeStore that should be ready by next week (fingers-crossed).

Nope freezing issues now. Never send a app now or nothing just stuck. It never confirms its sent ither.Win 7 32bit 1.2 ftp wired connecting via router.

On the PC side of things, the FreeStore program tells me that there is an update to the program. But when I say to update it just opens a progress bar and then nothing. It doesn't say a % done or say anything about success or failures. I know that I can install these things via a USB drive, but I like the idea of being able to update my HB with the FTP.

What FTP server are you using? If you're not using blackb0x, give it a try and let me know how you go.
