tempGBA - corrupt exe file - qwer4321 - 10-05-2018 02:15 PM

tempGBA from here (load), and numerous other places give this error:
"Could not load game. Failed to load executable: file corrupt."

Strangely EBOOT.PBP of emulator is totally uncompressible by WinRAR and 7-zip, even thou I see some text lines (MEMSIZE BOOTABLE CATEGORY...) at the beginning.

Some sort of UPX-packing preventing PPSSPP to parce header of EBOOT.PBP???

It's fake signed.

That forever will be a problem on emulators(including sony's official emulators on ps3/psv) since the key people fake sign homebrew is from one of the japanese demos like loco roco which can't be decrypted outside of real psp due to missing kirk key.
If you want to use such homebrew you will either have to download a non signed version / compile it yourself and avoid the awful fake signing or decrypt the executable file using real psp with some decrypting homebrew. You can't decrypt it on any emulator and that's exactly why it appears corrupted.

I never compiled anything in my life. For me simpler to use Hex-editor, but since it's compressed/encrypted I can't do anything.
I'll try to search unsigned version then.
As I understand unsigned version must have some special way of installing it (specific version of firmware).
