# Summary:
ChildBeGone is a simple, customizable program that was made to keep other people* from seeing your private files, updating your PSP, deleting your files, or generally playing with your PSP while you are not watching.
It can be set to be autobooted from the memory stick and is easily exited by you. The button scheme in exiting is simple to remember but hard to figure out because of the odd way you have to hold your PSP while pressing the buttons.
This also turns on USB mode to create quick file transfers or if you forget the buttons to quit the program.
What's great is that you can customize the message that appears on the screen whenever the program is ran so if there is someone who takes/steals/updates your PSP system often, you can directly tell them to leave your stuff alone!
*I use this to keep my little brother from messing with my PSP whenever I'm at school! It works great!

# Requirements:
1: A PSP Slim or Original model with at least 3.xx Custom Firmware installed.
2: Autobooting capibilities. (Please visit here if you do not have this: )
3: A memory stick.
4: Common sense.

# Installation:
1: Place the BOOT folder under X:/PSP/GAME/ .
(There should be a config.txt file and an EBOOT.PBP file within that folder.)
2: Enable the plugin and set it to autoboot ChildBeGone from within the BOOT folder.
3: It's set up! Reset your PSP to make sure ChildBeGone is booting up instead of the XMB.

really nice job man! I'm actually fixing to try this app out when I get home. I like the idea of button combo passwords!

Yeah, stopped my little brother for a long, long time.
Whenever I finally got it working on my Slim, I showed him it and he got mad at me! :D

so first off i think this app is amazing. very well done. My only problem is i cant seem to figure out the autoload feature, so far i just run it before i shut down. Any advice?

Running it before shutting down your PSP won't do you any good.
Go here and download that program.
Enable the [GAME] and [VHS] plug-in in the recovery menu. Then, go to the configurator that you put on your memory card and set it to on and set the autoboot program to ChildBeGone in the BOOT folder. :D

ok so i installed that program, which is pretty handy in itself.

but a small problem. when i push the 3 buttons, it just loads the program over again and it just repeats.

in autostart config i have some settings:

"autoboot" (ms0:/psp/game/boot/eboot.pbpa)
"enable autoboot" enabled
"enable wlan swich check" enabled.

thats all i messed with, then went into recovery mode and enabled the plugin.

any advice?

Disable the WLAN check and you probably only enabled the plug-in once.
Make sure it's in the vhs.txt and in the game.txt and both are enabled.

these are the two lines in my vsh.txt in my seplugins folder and both are enabled.
it is still looping.

btw this is on my phat, 4.01.

edit: i think i got it. but really, this is an amazing program. Very good job!
