Step 1: Download

Download the file below and save it anywhere on your PC. Next extract the folder to your desktop.

Step 2: Cut & Paste

The folder you extracted on your desktop should be called "FLCPCRMFS8RCAJ3" inside that folder you will find the ap1 folder Right click on the ap1 folder and click cut. Next connect your psp to the computer using a usb cord. Go to my computer and double click your psp drive (it should be called "removable disk"), double click "psp", double click "common", and paste it in there. It should be like this:


X = your memory stick.

Step 3: Accessing It

To access it go to the internet browser on the psp and type in the address bar without the quotes
"file:/psp/common/ap1/index.html" exactly that and it should come up.

Warning: If you make any errors in typing the address then it will not come up.

Enjoy AP1!

     Thanks! I made it with Microsoft Notepad.. all hand coded! I made this a while ago, I've really advanced my skills, and I'm thinking about making another one, except I don't have a PSP anymore..

     did you write it in html and what is the like size of the screen
    +wat happened to your psp


    Reply 9 years ago on Introduction

     the screen size is 480x272px. And yes I did write it in HTML.. I had gotten tired of my PSP and sold it, I really only used it for internet, and testing my portals on. But I might start working on another portal and I could have other people test it. it will take awhile though.. and I had another portal I had made a long time ago, and it had over 100 games on it, I called it VIPER. Although I deleted it, I'll have to go digging and see if I can find a back up of the files.. if I don't then I'll just maybe make a new one.

    Oh neat i've never heard of this before. Also to take a screenshot on your computer you press the button on your keyboard that says"PRT SCRN (with some more text under it)" then you open up mspaint(or any paint editing program) and paste the image(Edit > Paste) Then you can save the picture. Also for the psp,There is a plugin(Custom firmware only (CFW) ) for taking screenshots on the PSP Also what is AP1 Portal? What does this do? Also i see you have the PSP 3000 Piano black,Nice.(noticed the button with the Playstation logo on it)

    AP1 is a portal that has some cool game you can play right on it! And it has some cool apps, an internet browser that looks like safari, Instant messenger that you can sign in to multiple accounts, Neat flash movies, last but not least you can add your favorite links to it! I have it and its really cool.

    • BTW I made AP1and another one called "Viper" is in beta and will be published on instructables by me. And it has Over 100 Games!! Firefox browser and internet explorer browser AND the safari browser And More!!

     I'm so sorry for the late reply I guess I just didn't get the email about your comment.. but The games on this portal are flash games.. and you do not need CF (Custom Firmware or Crack) for a PSP portal because a portal is just an offline website that you run from your memory stick.. and you browse it through the built in web browser on the PSP.. just follow my instructions and you should get it to work

     You very welcome! I coded that one all in Notepad.. lol that was a while ago and I was still learning a lot about coding.. Thanks for trying it out!

    Will this work on a 2000 psp if so will this only come up when I go into internet browser. Just wanted to double check before downloading it to my psp.

     this works on the 1000, 2000, 3000 PSPs but the PSP go has a different screen size and it would look all ugly and funky. but to answer your question, the browser is the only way you can view it, and it won't do anything to your PSP, portals are like offline websites that have games and different features, just for fun.. the address you put in the browser to view it is simply pointing to the website HTML file. don't worry about anything happening to your PSP because it won't do anything, its just simply an offline website, and in order to view it then you must have the source files on your PSP so that you can view it and use it wherever you are, anytime of the day, and you won't need an internet connection, and another advantage is that you don't have to worry about the internet connection or wait long for it either because its all on your local memory stick.

    Does that answer your question? Thanks for using my portal =]

     well its not a "program" as I said its just like viewing a website on the browser, when you close the browser you close the website! its not game file or anything like that, its all in the browser.. hope you like it
