PLEASE, PLEASE post all your issues and bug reports regarding the converter at github. https://github.com/yifanlu/PSXperia/issues Also, include detailed information such as a copy of the converter output, android's logcat, etc. If your bug is reported already, make a comment with your system information and logs on the issue so I know multiple people are experiencing it.

We cannot share paid games, you will have to get someone who has bought the game to do a memory dump for you ........

Why doesn't someone just donate the money so he can buy a game? I'd do it but I'm buying a house.

How much does any multi-disk game costs? SE's PSX market is not available here.

The problem is... AFAIK, no multidisk game is available in the PSX market.

Yes, I know. I only really need the first 40 bytes or so of image.ps from the ZPAK.

First, I can't access the store because I have the R800i and am in US. Second, it is a rule of mine to never accept donations until after a project is completely finished.

That's interesting to learn. My phone is an unlocked R800a that I'm using on AT&T. I installed the unlocked UK firmware on it and it now reports as an R800i in the "About phone" section. However, as of the last month or so, I can finally see games in the PlayStation Pocket app store. I wonder if it's using the IMEI or something like that to report to the store for the region?

If you use a User Agent String changer to match that of the r800a and use a proxy so that the website thinks you are in the proper country you can maybe able to download the games that way.
I can confirm this worked for the gameloft wapshop from my desktop. I have never seen where the psx games come from so I cant guarantee it, but it is worth a shot.

They're actually in the Android Marketplace. For the longest time, they were limited to Europe, but now they're available in the US. Perhaps it might be possible to purchase them from there and remote install them to the phone?
