Change Your Icons And Livearea Of A Bubble (3.60) + SNES Icon/Livearea

Post by ACViper » Fri Jul 29, 2016 4:46 pm

This tutorial shows you how to change the icons and livearea of the homebrews. I used SNES as an example since the icons and livearea wasnt made with the .vpk

Instructions:

*UPDATE 2*
If you open a *homebrew*.vpk using winrar or 7zip you can easily just replace those files with mine. (If you want to put your own images they have to be saved as pngquant using a photoshop plugin or pngyu - https://pngquant.org/) The below instruction is just another way of doing this in case you guys are interested. Thanks @frangar on twitter for telling me.


1. Launch MolecularShell on your PS Vita and start FTP with the select button. On your PC use a FTP client like FileZilla and copy/get the following files:

Copy all the files in "SKOG00001 icons/livearea" to "/ur0:/appmeta/SKOG00001/"
Get your app.db from "/ur0:shell/db/app.db"

2. Launch "app.db" using DB Browser for SQLite and go to the "Execute SQL" tab
3. Click on the 2nd icon (should say Open SQL file when you hover your mouse over it)
4. Select the file "SNES LIVEAREA SQL.txt" and then click the icon that looks like a play button
5. Click "Write Changes"
6. Exit and copy the file back to "ur0:shell/db/app.db" using FTP
7. Restart your PS Vita, lauch MolecularShell and click install
8. DONE!

****THIS CAN BE DONE WITH ANY OTHER HOMEBREWS. JUST CHANGE THE FILES AND NAMES :D****

ACViper, did you made those images? I'm thinking on adding them to the project, so everyone who install Snes9x will have 'em by default. Are you ok with that?
