6.61 Theme Creation
I recently got back into theme work again and just so happened to have updated one of three PSP's I own to version 6.61 ME-2.3. I was wondering if anyone could help me convert my old 5.00m33 theme to the new 6.61 firmware. I originally followed this tutorial to a T:

This small guide will help you to create 661 folder inside the CTFTool.
First you will need these tools: the patched CTFtool GUI v5 Beta 2 6.60 and also the newpsardump_660.
In order to do that you will need to use newpsardump_660 to dump the modules from 6.61 Updater and create a new folder inside CTFtool\base called 661
Then copy all files from 660 folder ( which located under the same base folder ) to 661 folder
after that go to your psp then copy all *.prx files from (ms0:/F0/vsh/module) to the 661 folder and overwrite all files.
Then again go to your psp and this time copy all *.rco files from (ms0:/F0/vsh/resource) to the 661 folder and overwrite all files.
After that you can create\convert themes for 6.61 (a lot of tutorials are available to do that).

...needless to say it didn't work (I made sure to follow each step correctly)
is there anyone who knows what I might be doing wrong? every time I try and create a ctf from the CTFtool GUI v5 Beta 2 I get this error message "paf.prx decrypted or not support version"

please help as I'm totally lost, 5.00m33 was much easier lol

All glory comes from daring to begin.

RE: 6.61 Theme Creation
I haven't kept up, but I recall that CTFTool was never really updated past a certain point after the author lost the source code.
It may be possible that someone patched it, but it's probably not compatible with all the new PRXes (which might be your error).

Unfortunately, this means that you may have to manually patch the PRXes yourself (you'll need to find where the new offsets are in the 6.61 PRX and port modifications across).

Oh wow. That sounds like a lot maybe I'll just stick with 5.00m33
Thanks for responding though ZiNgA!
I have a couple of new themes I've been working on.
I hope to release them on here, this is where I learned it all...
countless hours of reading and trial and error I think this site is great!

RE: 6.61 Theme Creation
ohh well im old and rusty now ,but if you want to port any themes start digging the rcos and find out the differences.

For prxs use hex editor and search for the strings , use the search option, not like me ,i did it once manually.
But you chose if you want to spend hours in front of that hex soup resolving adresses.

Good luck
