To quote: We told you that it was coming, and now it is here! TN-V9 has been released.

A reminder, TN-V is an eCFW option for PS Vita users who would like to be able to run homebrews and PSP ISO/CSO on their PS Vita. TN-V is currently supported on firmwares 3.01 and below. Other eCFW options, such as ARK are out there, but ARK is not supported on firmwares above 2.02 (as of yet ). To be able to run TN-V, you need to have one of the many exploited PSP exploit games listed below.

This new version of Total-Noob's eCFW adds, fixes, and removes a few features to the PS Vita PSP emulation arsenal. Let's check them out:

Changelog TN-V9:

  • Added: 12MB of additional memory unlocked for all firmwares for use internally
  • Added: PS1 sound emulation via Pete's PEOPS SPU plugin
  • Added: Configuration option for the PEOPS plugin, accessible through the recovery menu
  • Added: Ability to view Vita firmware in "System Information"
  • Added & Fixed: A few internal things
  • Removed: The in-XMB FTP feature was removed because of bugginess i.e. messing up internet radio compatibility. A better FTP option will be added in a later eCFW revision.

There are some PS1 games tested on TN-V for sound. Some work fine, others have choppy sound, white noise, or lock-ups. Our community is maintaining a PS1 sound compatibility list here (wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?p=352105#p352105). You can also check an alternate list on hackinformer (hackinformer.com/?p=2608).

Update: Changelog TN-V9.5:

  • Added 'Blue Screen Of Death' technology. If your PS Vita crashes, this screen will appear and you can restart TN-V by pressing START. The crash information will be written to the savedata folder (exception.txt), so make sure that you copy the savedata from PS Vita -> PC and report this crash. With this enabled you don't need to hard-reset your PS Vita anymore.
  • Added possibility to disable PEOPS SPU plugin.
  • Added 'SPU update mode' and 'SPU thread priority' options. Play with these options and maybe your PS1 game will run more fluid.
  • Fixed 'white noise' in some PS1 games -> enhanced PS1 compatibility.

Update #2: Changelog TN-V9.6:

  • Added sctrlHENLoadModuleOnReboot function.
  • Fixed execution of plain modules in buffer.
  • Fixed garbled sound -> enhanced PS1 compatibility.
  • Changed default PEOPS SPU settings.
