From wololo's blog: Total_Noob just released an update to his eCFW for the Vita, CEF 6.60 TN Hen. The game makes compatibility with previous exploits easier to achieve, brings some bug fixes, but more importantly, brings compatibility with the game Mad blocker Alpha.

We organized a Ninja Release for the game, and hopefully many people were able to buy it in time, but sadly, the name of the game was leaked by a handful of people, and got pulled from the Sony PSN (this is at least confirmed for Europe, people in the US might have better luck) before we could do this public announcement.

15,000 members of our forums were part of the Ninja release, and in all honesty I wouldn’t expect all of them to keep their mouth shut, but it is sad to see that some major scene websites contributed to the leak, in the form of “rumor” articles and falsely naive posts. In the long run, those things hurt the scene more than necessary.

That being said, hopefully all the people who were looking for the ninja release got the info in time, and, well, if you missed the Monster Hunter exploit AND the Urbanix exploit AND the Mad Blocker alpha exploit, maybe the world wasn’t ready for your Vita to be hacked. There might be other opportunities in the future, but to be honest, a Kernel exploit has that “once a year” kind of feeling to it, if you ask me. And the “extra opportunity” for those who missed the release was actually the Mad blocker Alpha one, which really wasn’t planned initially.

For people on previous exploits who haven’t updated to one of the 3 exploits mentioned above, I’d say stay tuned. At some point TN’s work will be made open source (as he said a few days ago), and porting the eCFW to your exploit will become possible at that point.

Lots of things to say about this, but for now I have to catch a bit of sleep. Credits go to Total_Noob for the CFW, and to Frostegater for the Mad blocker alpha usermode exploit. Additional credits in the readme as well.

CEF 6.60 TN Version B Changelog:

Notes for this version:

- Changelog CEF 6.60 TN-B

  • Added more patches to get higher games compatibility.
  • Fixed bug that makes incompatibility with some games.
    (this also fixes bug that freezes your PSVita when you return from PSVita Menu to the backup game or when you resume the device).
  • Set CPU speed to 333 (experimental, not tested yet).
  • Removed hardcoded offsets and savedata path (makes porting CEF very easily).
  • FAKE.ISO is not needed anymore.
  • Forge "." and ".." entries in directories, because the PSPEmu does not read them. This increases compatibility with many homebrews.

- Changelog TN Menu 0.2 (bugs here will be fixed later, I just focused on CEF bugs)

  • Added ability to move backup games to ms0:/ISO (by pressing X on the game).
  • Added ability to load purchased PSN games.
  • In the progress bar now it shows the speed instead of the past seconds.
  • Added configuration menu (show it by pressing []).
  • Using ISO/CSO reader by Takka.
  • Added memory free space.

Update: From wololo (via wololo.net/2012/10/10/release-6-60-tn-b-for-monster-hunter-all-regions/), to quote:

6.60 TN-B for Monster Hunter (all regions)

Hiroi01 and NowCry have ported Total_Noob’s eCFW to the Monster hunter exploits (respectively JP, and EU/US), for those of you who are using these exploits on 1.80.

Less than a day after Total_Noob’s latest release, his eCFW has been ported to the Monster Hunter exploits. People running on these exploits were already able to enjoy TN-A, but it’s always nice to have an update

TN-B brings the following improvements:

- Changelog CEF 6.60 TN-B

  • Added more patches to get higher games compatibility.
  • Fixed bug that makes incompatibility with some games. (this also fixes bug that freezes your PSVita when you return from PSVita Menu to the backup game or when you resume the device).
  • Set CPU speed to 333 (experimental, not tested yet).
  • Removed hardcoded offsets and savedata path (makes porting CEF very easily).
  • FAKE.ISO is not needed anymore.
  • Forge “.” and “..” entries in directories, because the PSPEmu does not read them. This increases compatibility with many homebrews.

- Changelog TN Menu 0.2 (bugs here will be fixed later, I just focused on CEF bugs)

  • Added ability to move backup games to ms0:/ISO (by pressing X on the game).
  • Added ability to load purchased PSN games.
  • In the progress bar now it shows the speed instead of the past seconds.
  • Added configuration menu (show it by pressing []).
  • Using ISO/CSO reader by Takka.
  • Added memory free space.

I know people are still waiting for a backport of Total_Noob’s work to earlier exploits such as Super Collapse 3. I do not know if anybody is working on this at the moment. Again, this will be made easy when Total_Noob releases the sources for his exploit.

good news!! trying...

Update: PSP Custom Firmwares 6.20 ME-1.8 and 6.20 LME-1.8 are now available (from The Z via wololo.net/2014/05/03/psp-custom-firmwares-6-20-me-1-8-and-6-20-lme-1-8-are-now-available/)

Download: PSP 6.20 ME-1.8 Custom Firmware / PSP 6.20 LME-1.8 Custom Firmware / Chronoswitch 5.0 (6.xx Chronoswitch Downgrader) / PSP 6.20 Official Firmware

I don’t remember when we had the last PSP CFW news at Wololo’s Blog, but this one is kinda exciting!

The developer Rahim-US ported the famous PSP custom firmwares 6.60 ME-1.8 and 6.60 LME-1.8 to the 6.20 kernel of the PSP, which makes them compatible with the permanent patch.

Neur0n’s PSP CFW can now be permanently installed on every PSP that supports the 6.20 firmware, instead of only the PSP 1000 and 2000.

Same Custom Firmware, different base firmware

s3nint3!
In general, this new 6.20 ME/LME-1.8 CFW is the same as the 6.60 ME/LME-1.8 CFW, it just got backported to the 6.20 kernel, so it can be used in combination with the permanent patch, which makes the LME CFW basically a full CFW, on any PSP model, like the ME on older PSPs.

In the past, only the PRO CFW and the TN HEN were able to use the permanent patch, since there was no ME/LME CFW for said firmware 6.20.

The permanent patch is a nice addition to the PSP, since it looks and feels the same as a full (cIPL) CFW, something that most people will know from the PSP 1000 and 2000.

The permanent patched CFWs are basically just auto-booting LCFWs, which means a brick can still be fatal and flash0 mods are NOT recommended (Unless one uses a cIPL CFW, but that is something that just exists for the PSP 1000 and 2000).

The good thing about the permanent patch is, that it can help resolve to fix semi-bricks, since it offers access to the recovery menu, which then can be used to fix flash problems or even flash a completely new firmware.





I, personally, am very happy that it is now possible to use the LME CFW on firmware 6.20, since this means it can be permanent patched, when the perma patcher for the 6.20 LME is done.

The permanent patch installer for the 6.20 LME is currently still being worked on, to guarantee that it will be a safe one, not like the first public version of the permanent patcher for TN-D HEN, which bricked a few PSPs, due to an oversight.

If you are running a higher firmware than 6.20, be sure to grab the 6.20 firmware update and the Chronoswitch Downgrader, which will enable you to install/downgrade to firmware 6.20.

Update #2: From Rahim-US, to quote: Hello eveyone, I want to present you today the new port of ner0n's (L)ME custom firmware to the lower version 6.20.. it can be used on hackable 01g and 02g as full custom firmware or on all other model supported by version 6.20 as a lite custom firmware.

The permanent patch is not finished so not released yet, also i will try to port the custom firmware to other version.

Edit: all my thanks go to neur0n for his great custom firmware and for his work on the psp scene.. also i want to thanks The Z for beta testing, bug report and the video on youtube.

Exactly. Uncharted? Got it. And resold it after a couple of hours. Wipeout 2048? Got it. Completed the "game" (a little more than a demo...), completed the HD remake and almost completed the Fury remake (got both for free because I had already bought them for my PS3).

FFTWOTL? Got the original on PSX. I had on PSP too but I resold it. I don't like the other games in the offer...

I could update if they gave me for free something like Ragnarok Odyssey...or YS-Celceta, but it won't happen in a million years.

If tomorrow we suddenly got an only playable HD Vita version of Trails in the Sky 2 I would update in the blink of an eye. But this it's not gonna happen too..

BTW, I've never updated my Vita. I bought it used with some games and It came with 1.81 installed. So, I was wondering: are the updates stealthly forced if I got the wi-fi running or will they pop up only if I try to use the store or the PSN? That Vita ftp is very useful...
