[Release] gamePKG v1.0 (20121220) [by CaptainCPS-X]

Hiyas everyone! , been working on gamePKG for some days on my free time, please check it out and let me know if it works for you, thanks.

gamePKG is an application for the PS3 that allows the user to queue PKG files for later installation from the XMB “without restarting the PS3 at all”.

NOTE: Source Code will be released very soon after I finish cleaning it up, etc. Maybe @deank can implement my application method of queuing PKG files into multiMAN .

UPDATE: Source is now available here -> https://github.com/CaptainCPS/gamePKG

NOTE: MS Visual Studio (C++) project / solution will be posted there later as well.

 * Information:
 ----------------------------------------------

 gamePKG is an application for the PS3 that allows
 the user to queue PKG files for later installation
 from the XMB "without restarting the PS3 at all".

 Main objective of this application is to help
 users on Rogero CFW 4.30 (v2.03) to install
 PKGs without wasting much time.

 NOTE: Source Code will be released very soon after
 I finish cleaning it up, etc.

 ----------------------------------------------
 * Technical Info:
 ----------------------------------------------

 Tested on Rogero CFW 4.30 (v2.03)

 Should work on 3.40+ CFW

 The application will scan the following directories
 for PKG files:

 - /dev_hdd0/pkg/
 - /dev_hdd0/package/

 - /dev_usb000/pkg/
 - /dev_usb000/package/

 - /dev_usb001/pkg/
 - /dev_usb001/package/

 - /dev_usb002/pkg/
 - /dev_usb002/package/

 - /dev_usb003/pkg/
 - /dev_usb003/package/

 NOTES: 

 - The application handles big PKG files without problem,
 remember that these take some time to copy, make sure to
 have at least double the space on the HDD.

- The application doesn't support re-scaning devices for new PKG files (for now)
- The application doesn't verify HDD for previously queued files (for now)
- The application doesn't display a Progress bar (for now)
- The application doesn't support split PKG files (for now)
- The application doesn't support removing Queued PKG (for now)
- The application doesn't have any special GUI (don't know how to, sorry lol) 

 ----------------------------------------------
 * Usage:
 ----------------------------------------------

 - Use UP and DOWN to select PKGs
 - Press (X) to Queue the selected PKG
 - Press (O) to Quit and return to XMB

 ----------------------------------------------
 * Changelog

 * 1.0

 * Thanks to

 - aldostools - your ps3tools for windows are the best =)
 - deank - multiMAN helped me research / debug my application
 - fail0verfl0w, GeoHot, etc - for all you have done for the PS3 scene
 - Annonymous - for releasing Sony SDKs

 Thanks to anyone else I forgot that in some way contributed
 to the PS3 scene and as a result I was able to do this
 homebrew application.
