Setup instructions
Setup games databases URLs in ux0:pkgi/config.txt. The file format is the following:

url_games https://thesite/games.tsv
url_updates https://thesite/updates.tsv
url_dlcs https://thesite/dlcs.tsv
Then start the application and you are ready to go.

To avoid downloading pkg file over network, you can place it in ux0:pkgi folder. Keep the name of file same as in http url, or rename it with same name as contentid. pkgj will first check if pkg file can be read locally, and only if it is missing then pkgj will download it from http url.

Using application is pretty straight forward. Select item you want to install and press X. To sort/filter/search press triangle. It will open context menu. Press triangle again to confirm choice(s) you make in menu. Or press O to cancel any changes you did.

Press left or right button to move page up or down.

Where to get zRIF string?
You must use NoNpDrm plugin to dump existing games you have. Plugin will generate rif file with fake license. Then you can use either web page or make_key to convert rif file to zRIF string.

Where to get pkg URL?
You can use PSDLE to find pkg URL for games you own. Then either use original URL, or host the file on your own server.

Where to remove interrupted/failed downloads to free up the space?
In ux0:pkgi folder - each download will be in separate folder by its title id. Simply delete the folder & resume file.

Download speed is too slow!
Typically you should see speeds ~1-2 MB/s. This is normal for Vita hardware. Of course it also depends on WiFi router you have and WiFi signal strength. But sometimes speed will drop down to only few hundred KB/s. This happens for pkg files that contains many small files or many folders. Creating a new file or a new folder takes extra time which slows down the download.
