How to Convert Flash0 Themes to CTF

Here is a guide on how to convert your FlashO themes into CTF themes for use with the CXMB plugin. This was created by Junya8971. All credit goes to him.

1) Make sure you have the FULL version of CXMB installed. Also make sure you have the
following inside the CXMB folder: 1 support folder which has the decrypted prx`s(common_gui.prx,
paf.prx, & vshmain.prx) inside, 1 file called cxmb.prx, and a text file which reads “CONF.TXT”.
If you have the CXMB installed and enabled then you are ready to convert the F0 themes to CTFs.

2) Now you need to make a PTF file using the Theme Converter v1.0.0.0. 1st get a wallpaper which is
in 480×272, 24Bit true color, BMP format. 2nd you need to get an Icon file which is in16x16,
256 colors, PNG format(Use PNG for PTF to convert to 256 colors) and 3rd you need a Preview
file which is in 300×170, 24Bit true color, BMP format. See the previews below:

3) Now you get the F0 theme you want to convert to CTF and you put these folders inside the CXMB
folder: vsh folder, font folder(if there is one), & you need a PTF file which consists of the preview
image and a preview icon. Then you open the CONF.TXT file with a notepad and type in the name of
the PTF file like this: /PSP/THEME/xxxxxxxxxxxx.ctf the xxx is the PTF file name. If the PTF file
name and xxx.ctf file name don`t match your theme will not get converted to CTF.

4) Once you finish this, all you have to do is restart your PSP by going to the vsh menu and hit reset.
Your PSP lamp will flash for awhile and when it`s done you will see the theme you converted to CTF!
And you will find the CTF file you made in the PSP/THEMES folder.

This is what I do when I convert the F0 themes to CTF. I hope this helps everyone. If there is anything
that I`m missing let me know and I will add to this tutorial. Also make sure you are converting the theme for the CFW version you are using.
