PlayStation Vita (PSVita/PSV) JAVA Linux Microsoft Windows
360 Edition v2.1

It's a tool written in JAVA that will simplify the installation of PSVita custom themes in your app.db file. With this application infact you can install a new custom theme in your PSVita app.db file automatically. All you need to do is to pass a app.db file and your custom theme info, the program automatically will write every record in the db by itself.
In addition to string and integer params this program supports also SQL blobs, so you can give your theme even a title and an author. In this way, in your PSVita Theme Settings page there will be really no difference between an official theme and your custom theme!
