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.

Following up on the PlayStation Vita TN-B Urbanix and Mad Blocker Alpha and Gravity Crash releases, this weekend Total_Noob has released TN-C eCFW for PS Vita handheld console owners with details below.

To quote: Developer Total_Noob has released TN-C eCFW with a huge list of improvements including compatibility for the Motorstorm and Super Collapse exploits. TN-C has also now become open source. Keep reading!

The long awaited and highly anticipated update to TNmenu by developer Total_Noob for all exploits is finally here, bringing a substantial update to just about everything. With TN-C Total_Noob has added compatibility for those still holding out on the Motorstorm and Super Collapse 3 exploits; something he was testing a while back.

TN has also made this release open source which means other developers will be able to build and add new features to TN-C. With this release Total_Noob also released a statement that this will be most likely his last release. It’s very sad news; we can only say thanks and best wishes in your future endeavors.

“As promised, here is the new open sourced TN-C. This is probably my last release, because my priority is still familiy, friends and school If you continue my project, please keep it open source and call it ‘TN’ Best wishes.

~Andy, aka Total_Noob”

The release is packed with tons of bug fixes, fixes for compatibility issues and has an entirely new look. TN listened to users and fixed everything, making it the best TN release thus far. You can find a list of the full release and new features below including a tutorial on installing ISO/CSO and homebrew by TN. The download links can be found at the bottom with a preview of it. Enjoy!

Changelog CEF 6.60 TN-C

  • Added 1.61-1.67 firmwares support (supports Motorstorm and Super Collapse 3 exploits).
  • Added ability to alter user name and button assign (enter button).
  • Added possiblity to change buttons to exit and its hold duration.
  • Added possiblity to change CPU speed (the PSP Emu’s CPU is increased by 60%. Even 20/10 CPU on PSVita is faster than 333/166 CPU on PSP )
  • Added custom folder hider(fixes dj max portable 3 crash).
  • Fixed issue with backups which within load an ELF file (fixes crash in Talkman and probably in more games).
  • Improved module device check patch (fixes Tekken 6 and Soul Calibur) - Changelog TN Menu
  • Updated the whole user interface (by Darkenvy).
  • Added memory space check.
  • Added PIC1 display.
  • Fixed bug that doesn’t allow you to go to PSVita menu when you load TN Menu within TN Menu.
  • Fixed crash when you move a backup file and the ISO folder does not exist.
  • Made everything smoother.
  • Improved ZIP reading (increases menu boot with packages).

Controls

  • [] to open the configuration menu.
  • /\ to delete a file.
  • X to install a homebrew, move backups, or to load a homebrew/game.
  • Arrows to move.

Prepare homebrews

  • Create an ZIP archive of the homebrew, saved as: ‘FILENAME.ZIP/PSP/GAME/*THE_HOMEBREWS_NAME*/EBOOT.PBP’.
  • “FILENAME.ZIP” can be saved somehow, it just MUST BE UPPER CASE LETTER and the filename can ONLY BE 8 CHARACTERS LONG.
  • Save the archive in the savedata folder.

Install ISO/CSO

  • Copy backup file to the savedata folder, UPPER CASE LETTER, 8 CHARACTERS LONG (e.g. BACKUP.ISO).
  • Start TN Menu and press X on the game to move it to ‘ms0:/ISO/’ (you’ll reach ~2000 KB/s).

DATA.TN

This is a ZIP file which contains images for TN Menu.

Source Code

CEF TN got open sourced by GPLv3. I am tired of programming and give you guys the job continue it. Please respect the license, make it open source. It also contains ‘popcorn’ which is a beta module for psx support. Perhaps a master can finish it with sounds.

  • Thanks to Darkenvy for his TN Menu graphics.
  • Thanks to Takka for his ISO/CSO reader.

I really don't understand how anyone can "miss" an exploit. I don't follow PSV news, but every other scene can just back up whatever game is needed. Is that not possible on the Vita?

Check on the free space on memory card.

Also, if you're transfering via CMA, try via FTP and vica versa

I tried copying my 3rd birthday backup and every time it crashes my laptop at about 90% of transfer.

I just can't stress enough how awesome is to play psp games on the bigger OLED screen, comparing to good ol' psp2000 screen.

Wihout a doubt, it's a good fresh breathe into psp games again.
