This Instructable will show you how to install a Windows Vista-styled Portal on a PSP system. The process described will work, however, for any other portal you may like to install. .

A portal is basically a set of webpages that are saved as HTML files to your memory stick. Therefore they open in the PSP's Internet browser, yet run offline. In this example, the pages are styled like Windows Vista, although this particular portal comes with an option to use a Windows XP theme as well. You may be interested to know that not all portals are designed to look like an OS. Some have an original design.

Please note that YOU DO NOT NEED CUSTOM FIRMWARE for this to work. It will work on any PSP software, as long as it has the Internet browser option (system software 2.00 upwards). If you do happen to have custom firmware (as do I) it will work just as well.

Please also note that this is not an official Microsoft product (as you probably will have guessed) , but it is completely legal and will not harm your PSP in any way.

Step 1: What You Will Need:

You will need:

1) a PSP (duh!)
2)PSPWVISTA 1.7 http://www.megaupload.com/?d=W65KIHL8

To be honest, nothing. It won't do anything that you can't do normally. It's just pretty cool.<br>

Open pictures from your memory stick, play music, write text files, and impress people ;)

hi...i can't download pspwxp3.8 from this site but i found it here in torrent: http://www.torrenthound.com/hash/5181c4d47be81fe3ca46c1943948f35b2cd102f0/torrent-info/pspwxp-3-8-%26amp%3B-9-rar--Lucifer2690<br /> <br /> <br />
can it be on any psp system? i want to try it on my psp go<br />
of course it will work on any psp system including the psp go.<br /> <br /> oh and by the way the newest download is a <a href="http://www.blazebyte.org/" rel="nofollow">blazebyte.org</a> (pspwxp is no longer in production but other products such as pspwvista and a full recode called gnextop are also avaible)<br />
how functional is this? what does it add what i cant already do with my PSP?<br />
i don't know about this.<br /> i think i will try it but can you take windows vista off your psp or does it stay on forever<br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
&nbsp;u just delete he file so yes
hey that link takes me nowhere. it brings up a page with alot letters and symbols
I don't think Ursell was very clear. You are opening up the html document you need to send to your psp. you need to somehow get it onto your psp.<br />
that is because when you click download a little thing pops up saying, if your using firefox, What should Firefox do with this file? you need to save it, and i saved it as "all files" instead of Firefox Document, but either will work.
works fine on my psp (psp 3001 firmware 5.50) ironicly it doesnt show that loading screen.<br />
Is this a a portal, as in on the web browser, or an actual firmware type thing?

Try turning on flash, java etc. and cleaning up cache.
