    just registered to share my psp homebrew for the retro pie project.
    it’s a software to use the psp with a custom firmware as wireless gamepad
    on the retro pie v2.3 sd image.

    PSP homebrew + uhid.ko kernel modul + vhid_server (attachment)

    (optional static ip):
    -> or use the the ip given by the dhcpd – show ip with ‘ifconfig’

    installation of the PSP homebrew:
    -> copy directory remotejoy to the memorystick

    set the pi ip on the psp:

    install kernel modul:
    -> uhid.ko has to be in the same path
    chmod +x

    install controller config:
    -> controller.cfg has to be in the same path
    chmod +x

    load uhid modul on startup:
    sudo nano /etc/modules
    -> or just
    sudo echo “uhid” >> /etc/modules

    vhid-server autostart:
    -> install libconfig
    sudo apt-get install libconfig-dev

    ->, vhid_server und vhid_server.conf should be under /home/pi/
    chmod +x ./vhid_server
    chmod 755
    crontab -e

    add this line to the crontab:
    @reboot sh /home/pi/ >/home/pi/cronlog 2>&1

    restart the pi and connect the psp to it after the menu appears

    greetings, saturnu
