October 3, 2012 // 8:13 pm - Following up on his NoRSX PS3 v0.1.9 (96b8a31) update, today PlayStation 3 developer deroad has released an application dubbed Install Package Homebrew for PS3 CFW users followed by v1.2 with details below.

Download: Install Package Homebrew for PS3 CFW / Install Package Homebrew for PS3 GeoHot CFW / Install Package Homebrew v1.2 for PS3 CFW / Install Package Homebrew v1.2 for PS3 GeoHot CFW / Install Package Homebrew for PS3 CFW (Source Code) / GIT

To quote: Hi everyone, since I'm working on PSChannel (I don't know when it will be finished), I had to build a few features for it (I will not tell which they are). so I written this simple homebrew to install one or more PKG without using the XMB option. this app is useful if you, for some reason, can't use that option.. it will create on the XMB a new icon that will allow you to install that pkg.

How to use it:

Place in the main directory of your USB a pkg (it can handle up to 100 pkgs, and the max size for each of them is 4GB).. then plug in the usb on the ps3 and run the app.

It will search the usb from /dev_usb000 to /dev_usb009, once found it will start it copy and create the right files to allows you to install it from the XMB without the option.

THIS APP WILL RESTART THE PS3 ONCE FINISHED. I hope that this app can be useful (maybe also someday).

v1.2 Changelog:

This new version allow to install packages also from the /dev_hdd0/package folder, just not plug in any USB and it will search in that directory.

Update: Install Package Homebrew Source Code (via from deroad:

I decided to release my source code (linked above) of this homebrew. to compile it, you will need PSL1GHT V2.

if you want to copy partially or entirely the code, please, add me on the credits. Have fun.
