    Idiot-proof Guide to psx4all (v0.1.0 download link inside!)

    I've been seeing a ton of threads in the wake of psx4all's beta release. I've got some time on my hands and would like to help out, so here we go. You will need a jailbroken iPod for this.

    Note: You can now downlaod psx4all off Installer.app. It will make it much easier.



    Here we go.

    Step 1: Getting the Program
    Click this link to download psx4all v0.1.0.

    http://zodttd.com/forum/index.php?topic=154.0

    Extract it by right clicking on the archive and clicking "Extract to psx4iphone_0_1_0". Step 1 complete. Congratulations.

    Step 2: Putting the Program on your iPod touch

    Now that you have the program, you need it on your iPoT. Just put it onto your iPoT like you would any other program. In WinSCP or TotalCommander, first connect to your iPod. Then, in the right column, locate to the folder called Applications. Drag the folder "psx4iphone.app" into the right column. Let it do it's thing. Yay, you put it onto your iPoT.

    Since this is an idiot-proof guide, I'm putting a tutorial for WinSCP and TotalCommander in here, just in case you don't know how to use them.

    WinSCP
    1.) Download WinSCP from this link: http://sourceforge.net/project/down...lename=winscp405setup.exe&use_mirror=internap

    2.) Install it and reboot your computer.

    3.) Open up WinSCP. For the Host Name, put your iPoT's IP Address. To find this, go to Settings on your iPoT, click on Wi-Fi, then click the blue arrow next to your network's name. The IP address is the first thing you'll see. Put that into the Host Name box. For User Name, put root. The password is alpine. Those are the only ones that work, no matter what. Make sure the port number is 22. The click Save so you don't have to enter that crap every time you need to connect. Click OK then click Login. That should work, then put it onto your iPoT.

    TotalCommander
    1.) Download it from this link: http://www.ghisler.com/download.htm
    Then download this too: http://t-pot.googlecode.com/files/T-PoT.0.2.zip

    2.) Install TotalCommander.

    3.) Extract the T-PoT archive.

    4.) Open up TotalCommander. Click on Configuration near the top of the window, then click on Options. Click on Plugins from the left column. Click Configure under File System Plugins (.WFX) in the middle. Click Add then find the T-PoT.0.2 folder and the T-PoT.wfx file in that folder and click Open. Then press Ok, and close TotalCommander. Open it up again and find the drop-down menu over the right column that says "[-c-]". Drop it down and click on the last option, [-/-]. That should bring you to all the files on your iPoT. I highly recommend using this since it transfers large files very quickly.

    Note: If there are multiple files to one game, such as a .img, a .ccd and a .sub, you will need to put all three of them into the ROMs folder.

    Anyways, back to the guide.

    Step 3: Setting the Permissions to 755

    For this, you can use either Squid or Finder. I use Squid. Download it from Installer, then open it up. Touch Applications, then find psx4all.app. Touch that, then find psx4all at the bottom. Touch that, and you'll see nine green boxes. Make sure that all of the boxes with Read next to them are checked, same with the ones with Exec next to them. There are also three boxes with Write next to them. Only touch the left-most box, then press Apply. That will set the permissions to 755 and make psx4all work. It should look like this:
    [​IMG]



    Step 4: Putting Games onto your iPoT

    Open up WinSCP or TotalCommander and get into your iPoT's files. This time, go down and click on "var". Then click "root", then "Media", then "ROMs", then "PSX". Find the ROM you downloaded on the left column and drag it into the right column. This might take a while, so I highly recommend TotalCommander because it's the fastest way to transfer games. Let it finish, close TotalCommander or WinSCP, then that's all there is to it. Congratulations, you've gotten PSX games on your iPod touch!

    Step 5: Getting the BIOs file
    You're going to want the BIOs file for psx4all. I cannot post it in this thread for legal reasons, so I recommend going to www.google.com and typing something like "scph1001.bin download" and clicking on the first result. Something like that :) One you've got that, extract it and put it onto your iPoT in the psx4all directory. Remember, it's Applications/psx4all.app. Then, go into Squid and and change the permissions of the scph1001.bin file to 755. There you go!

    Note: I cannot post any links to ROM sites on here for legal reasons. PM another member for some links.
