Updates changelog

The repository:
In the days after the release of Henkaku hack, and the following PSVita DB Theme Installer 360, one of the most frequent questions I read around on forums and social networks was:

"Where can I download custom themes for my PSVita?"

Of course there were already threads or posts collecting custom themes in various sites, but often they were messed up because of people comments, many preview images of different size and type, download links from many different file hosting services, etc... Hence the idea of ​​creating a repository that was simple, fast, mobile friendly, but still complete and free, where all users could find and download custom themes for their console in few seconds. And so here is the PSVita Custom Themes - Free Repository!
In this repository you will find custom themes created by amateur users, collected from around the web and then tested, arranged and reuploaded on Google Drive so that they can be ready to download and use. Obviously it was impossible to retrieve any existing custom theme on the web and many of those found had no more valid download link. However this repository includes a public feature to submit a custom theme to be added, so whether you are the creator of a new custom theme or you have just found one around the web that is not currently included in the repository, you can easily submit it so that it could be added soon.

Disclaimer:
The custom themes in this repository have been collected from around the web. All rights on them therefore belong to the rightful owners.
This repository is completely free. Its author (@redsquirrel87) is in no way related to the creators of these custom themes and therefore he does NOT take any responsibility for their contents. For any dispute about a custom theme in this repository you can use the Contact Us form to ask for details or the removal of content that, always unintentionally, may have caused you a damage in any way.
The custom themes in this repository have all been tested before being posted, despite this it is still possible that you may experience some unknown problems that did not occur to us during testing. For this reason please remember that you are using the custom themes in this repository always at your own risk.
The custom themes in this repository have been reuploaded into a Google Drive account. This brings the advantage of a direct download without speed limits but this also means that in case of downloading abuses the files may suffer the classic 24-hour suspension by Google. I therefore appeal to your common sense to avoid this from happening, so that all users could continue to use this service.
Since there will be a function in PSVita DB Theme Installer 360 that will let users to download custom themes from this repository and to install them directly on their PSVita memory card, all extra files and subfolders have been deleted from the ZIP packages of the custom themes to save space. They will be still available as separate download (but they will be uploaded on Mediafire to save space on the main Google Drive account).

Create a custom theme for PSVita

A complete PC tool that will simplify the creation of custom themes for PSVita is currently under development. Until its release in the meantime you can follow the detailed tutorial of HackInformer.com for creating them manually.

Know the firmware currently installed on your PSVita

In your PSVita home page search for the Settings icon and launch it:

image image

Scroll down and choose the "System" option:

image

Now choose the "System Information" option:

image

And now you can view what firmware is currently installed in your PSVita thanks to the "System Software" line:

Install a custom theme on a PSVita

Note: to use this homebrew you need a PSVita compatible with Henkaku hack. This means that it will work only if your PSVita Firmware is 3.60, please look at the tutorial above to know what is the firmware currently installed in your PSVita.

First of all you need to download and install Custom Themes Manager homebrew in your PSVita.

Then run the homebrew by pressing on the icon that should be on the PSVita livearea screen:

image

From the main menu select the "Download a Custom Theme" function:

image

Now you'll can browse the online repository to find any available custom theme you want to install:

image

Just press X on any of the available custom themes and follow the instructions in the homebrew to proceed with its installation.

When the process will be completed you'll return to main menu, now just press START to reboot your PSVita and the custom theme should be now available in your PSVita just as any other Official Theme.

Install a custom theme on a PSVita via PC

Preliminary note: this installation method works only on with Firmware 3.60, please look at the tutorial above to know what is the firmware currently installed in your PSVita. For installation methods on others Firmwares please read the final note at the bottom of this section.

1. Connect the program to the PSVita via FTP

First of all you need to activate the FTP server on your PSVita. To do that simply install Henkaku hack on PSVita and then launch molecularShell/VitaShell and press SELECT on your pad, a new window will appear at screen with the address of your FTP server (with the format ftp://host:port):

image

Now just run PSVita DB Theme Installer 360 on your PC. Insert the host and port of PSVita FTP server in the program window:
image

And then click on CONNECT button. In the log text area you should read a confirmation of the FTP connection now:

image

2. Load a custom theme folder in the program

Now that the program and the PSVita are connected, it's time to choose a custom theme to install. You can download any custom theme from this repository or from any website on the web.
When you have your custom theme downloaded and extracted on your PC you can click on LOAD A CUSTOM THEME FOLDER button and select the custom theme's folder (be sure to select the folder with the theme.xml file inside!):

image

The program will acquire all details about the theme automatically (please note that this process requires to read inside the file theme.xml, so if the custom theme has not a valid theme.xml file the program can not load all its details automatically!):

image

3. Check if theme's details are correct:

Now the program will show you the details it acquired about the theme. Before to install it please check if the details are correct and, in case, edit what you wish. If there was any error while importing the details from the XML file you may have to insert them manually now.
In this example I changed the Installation Path in a shorter one:

image

4. Install the custom theme

When you're ready to proceed, just click the INSTALL CUSTOM THEME button (it's a good idea to keep enabled the Create a backup option, just in case something goes wrong). Just as the confirmation dialog will say, please be careful to don't disconnect your PSVita FTP server during the whole process!

image

You can follow the installation process thanks to the log text area. The program will now proceed to edit your app.db file and to upload your custom theme's files inside the PSVita Memory Card:

image

When the process will be complete, if no error, you'll can read a "CONGRATULATIONS" message inside the log:

image

All done, now your custom theme should be installed and, after rebooting your PSVita, ready to be used just as an Official one:

image

image

A couple of important advices:

  • After the installation please remember to reboot your PSVita before to use the new custom theme or you could run into a few bugs (such as no icons or white icons, no backgrounds, etc...).
  • In my tests installing the custom theme inside the same folder of Official ones (ux0:theme) resulted in a corrupted theme that could not be used. But I don't know if it was just an issue of my database/console.
  • If you get any corruption/issue with your PSVita after installing a custom theme just try to restore an app.db backup (if any) with the specific function of the program or, as last chance, rebuild the database using the Recovery Mode of the PSVita

Final note: there are also other installation methods for some firmwares lower than 3.60, but they are much more complex. My suggestion is to update your PSVita to Firmware 3.60 (but please be careful to not install any Firmware greater than 3.60!), but if you still want to remain on lower firmwares then you can follow the detailed tutorials on HackInformer.com about how to install custom themes on: Any firmware < 3.30 and Any firmware between 3.30 and 3.52
Also please note that there is no known way to install custom themes on Firmware 3.55 and any firmware > 3.60 yet!

Change the current theme on your PSVita

Preliminary note: since Sony introduced the support for themes only starting from firmware 3.30, there is no way to change your theme from the settings of your PSVita on previous firmwares!
Therefore the following method works only if your installed firmware is 3.30 or higher, please look at the tutorial above to know what is the firmware currently installed in your PSVita.


In your PSVita home page search for the Settings icon and launch it:

image image

Scroll down and choose the "Theme & Background" option:

image

Now choose the "Theme" option:

image

And now you can select one of the themes currently installed in your PSVita:

image

Uninstall a custom theme from your PSVita

Preliminary note: this method works only if your PSVita firmware is 3.60. Please look at the tutorial above to know what is the firmware currently installed in your PSVita.

First of all you need to download and install Custom Themes Manager homebrew in your PSVita.

Then run the homebrew by pressing on the icon that should be on the PSVita livearea screen:

image

From the main menu select the "Uninstall a Custom Theme" function:

image

Now the homebrew will display a list of custom themes currently installed in your PSVita:

image

Just scroll the list to find the custom theme you want to uninstall and press SQUARE on it. Then press START to confirm the uninstalltion.

When the process will be completed you'll return to main menu, now just press START to reboot your PSVita and the custom theme (and its files on Memory Card) should be gone.

Uninstall a custom theme from your PSVita via PC

Note: to use this homebrew you need a PSVita compatible with Henkaku hack. This means that it will work only if your PSVita Firmware is 3.60, please look at the tutorial above to know what is the firmware currently installed in your PSVita.

First of all you need to activate the FTP server on your PSVita. To do that simply install Henkaku hack on PSVita and then launch molecularShell/VitaShell and press SELECT on your pad, a new window will appear at screen with the address of your FTP server (with the format ftp://host:port):

image

image

And then click on Connect button. In the log text area you should read a confirmation of the FTP connection now:

image

Now click on the Uninstall a theme button and the program will show you a list of themes currently installed in your PSVita:

image

You can now selected one or more themes you want to uninstall and then click on the Uninstall button to start the uninstallation process. The program will proceed to remove the selected themes from your app.db file and delete their files from the PSVita memory card.
When the process will be complete you'll get a confirmation message in the log text area:

image

Uninstall all the custom themes installed on your PSVita with any firmware

Preliminary note: this method will remove also every custom app/bubble from your PSVita and will reset your icons position!
Also, even if the custom themes won't appear anymore in your PSVita "Theme & Background" settings, this method won't remove the files of the custom themes from your PSVita memory card! If you want to remove them you can use the Content Manager app (if possible) or just format the memory card.

Start your PSVita in "Recovery Mode":

PSVita:
  • Be sure your PSVita is turned off (and not in stand-by mode!).
  • Hold at the same time the PS button and the Right shoulder button and power on your PSVita while keeping them pressed.
  • After a couple of second you should see the recovery menu.
PSTV:
  • Be sure your PSTV is turned off (and not in stand-by mode!).
  • Hold the power button.
  • After a couple of second you should see the recovery menu.

From the recovery menu choose the option "2. Rebuild database" and confirm. When the procedure will be complete just restart your PSVita and the custom themes will be gone.
