    Step 1: Dumping your app.db file



    Depending on your firmware and preference there are different ways to do this:


    Fail-Mail trick - for firmware(s) 3.00 - 3.52



    HENkaku - for firmware 3.60



    Backup Editing - for ALL firmware(s)





    Step 2: Modifying the app.db file



    1) Back on the PC we can now start the SqliteBrowser, open our app.db file..

    sqlitebrowser

    ..go to Browse Data and select tbl_appinfo_icon from the dropdown menu.


    sqlitebrowser2

    2) Now just hit the New Record button in the top right hand corner to create a new entry or alternativley use any app entry you don't need.

    sqlitebrowser3

    (If you create a new entry you need to make sure to select a vaild pageID and Pos)


    3) Set the title to Welcome Park, the iconPath to ur0:appmeta/MPXS10007/icon0.png and the titleID to NPXS10007!

    sqlitebrowser3

    4) When you're done hit Write Changes and close the programm.



    Step 3: (Re)Installing the modified app.db file



    Fail-Mail trick - for firmware(s) 3.00 - 3.52



    HENkaku - for firmware 3.60



    Backup Editing - for ALL firmware(s)




    Restart your PlayStationTV and the WelcomePark should appear! Done!

    FAQ & Troubleshooting



    My Vita performs a database refresh when restarting at the last step.

    This means the app.db got corrupted somehow. Restart at Step 2


    My Icon is just blank?!

    Maybe you put in a wrong link at the iconPath entry?


    My e-mail shows a [?] instead of the photo symbol?!

    Try resetting the Vita's mail account or resend the mail.


    Some of my apps now have a grey background and are missing the start icons?

    Thats a bug which can occurs when adding new records to the app.db.
