PSP Radio 0.37 (Final) Released

PSP Updates has posted the final release of PSP Radio. PSP Radio is a great homebrew app that allows streaming radio for internet radio stations (IE Shoutcast). The program has changed quite a bit since its initial release and it is now complete.


* TextUI: Added a new config element to specify the length of the metadata.
* GraphicsUI: Removed from the build as it doesn’t work correctly with the current core.
* TextUI: Added config item/implementation to provide 24/12-hour clock configuration.
* TextUI: Separate config files per screen
* TextUI: Metadata color is now configurable (see bug #5907)
* Core: Removed local LibPSPNet; using pspsdk’s pspnet now.
* Core: Added new LocalFiles screen.
* TextUI: Using new screens by semtex199.
* TextUI: Added configuration items to cfg file to configure the list’s titles.
* TextUI: -2 in the X position for configuration items makes the item not be printed (suggested by HalfastII)
* TextUI: The config file is now partitioned into one section per screen (suggested by HalfastII)
* TextUI: Added support for showing the time and the battery level.
* TextUI: Now files defined in playlists are displayed without the path, and the extension is only shown if configured to in the config file.
* Compiled against latest pspsdk (r1542). There should be some speed improvements, as things like memcpy are now optimized.
* Core/TextUI: Added support to print text using pixel coordinates
* TexUI: Removed cleaning code that was unnecessary in the options screen renderer. This should speed it up a bit.
* Added support for showing the time and the battery level on the 3D UI.
* Enabled pausing of local streams
* Cleanup/robustness added for play/stop core.
* Created playmodes; defaults to NORMAL (will play next track after current one ends), also has SINGLE and REPEAT modes.
* Completely re-wrote buffering system. (Using stl lists, and optimized buffers). New change from one stream to the next is seamless.
* Made font size configurable in the textui config file. If these settings are set correctly, then the artifacts produced when using outlined/shadowed text should go away. (The downside, is that the number of columns/rows is also modified as these values change.)
* Added support for showing the battery status and the current local time.
* TextUI is now more configurable (for listboxes/textmode(font modes))
* Added shadowed font mode for textui.
* Added option to select if file extensions should be displayed or not in textui.
* Added pngs for startup/shutdown of PSPRadio
* Now using pngs designed by Semtex/albadross/HalfastII
* Added better support for suspending/resuming psp.
* Minor tweaking of the textui.cfg
* The initial screen can now be selected in the PSPRadio.cfg file, under SYSTEM/INITIAL_SCREEN
* Can now refresh the playlists from the Options screen.
* Options can now be saved from options screen.
* 0.37-pre3c: Now you can save and restore USB autostart / wifi autostart / intial screen from the options screen
* Added a genre processing/parsing stage for database.
* Changed the text ui layout a bit, so that the stream name has more room
* Added a radial blur effect as a background effect on the 3D UI.
* Added code to draw font with outline – thanks to Halfast for the idea.
* Revamped code to handle playlists in memory.
* Now entries are sorted by genre
* Now will reload db on download. Also now include a default db.xml


* ScreenHandler: Now selecting to refresh playlists in Options screen will also refresh the local files screen virtual playlists. (Bug #5904).
* Core: Corrected basename implementation bug #5982. (files shorter than 4 chars weren’t getting displayed).
* Core: Corrected bug #5924, if PSP/MUSIC folder was empty, the app would crash.
* Core: Corrected problem where if no playlist or local files where present, the app would crash when the user tried to access the next track/playlist using UP/DOWN.
* Core: VBlank fix.
* Core: Updated to use socket headers from the new pspsdk.
* TextUI: Fixed bug where localfiles where getting truncated as they were displayed.
* Corrected logging timestamping, now using localtime (inspired by sandberg’s code).
* Core: Logging instantiated in the heap instead of the data segment.
* Core: Modifications to make it compatible with the latest pspsdk (r1542)
* Playback: Corrected bug that caused app to crash when a stream failed.
* TextUI: Made the title shorter so it fits no matter what font is used.
* Updated the 3D UI so all options are fitted to the screen.
* Corrected log times now that clock changed in sdk
* Corrected bug with playlists v2, where streams with spaces were getting truncated.
* Fixed problem where PSPRadio was exiting when it went into screen blank mode.
* Some refactoring of options code/pspapp_network. Corrections on loglevels.
* 0.37-pre3b: Corrected the WIFI:AUTOSTARTing.
* Corrected issue where SHOUTcast screen wasn’t allocating memory for the lists, reusing the playlists’ memory. This was causing instability in version 0.37-pre1.

    Helpful…but what firmware is it for?

  2. 2 Hobo

    And assuming I do have the correct firmware… I’m having trouble installing it. The readme isnt being very helpfull.

    As in 95% of all homebrew you need 1.5 or 2.0. This one works on both 1.5 and 2.0

    You can always check Fanjita’s Homebrew page ( for what works on 2.0

    As far as 2.01+ for the time being you can assume that unless specifically stated, the posted homebrew will NOT work on anything higher than 2.0

    Keep trying. I’ve been using it on 3.52 m33 -4, and now 3.71 m33 -4, and it works great, when run in 1.5 kernal (addon) mode.

    Actually, I just checked and I got it to run in 3.71 mode as well.
