    Wololo statement about this CFE:

    In a very short statement on PSPKing.de, famous PSP/Vita Hacker Total_Noob announced he will be releasing an update to his recently published eCFW  – emulator Custom FirmWare, a new term to design a PSP Custom firmware running within the PSP emulator on the PS Vita – later this week.

    Total_Noob said the new release, named CEF 6.60 TN-B, will have bug fixes, improvements, as well as potential new features. The developer is asking the community to provide a comprehensive list of bugs if possible (rather than individual reports) so that he can start working on fixing as much as he can. We do have a thread where you guys can discuss bugs, but if one member of our community could compile this thread into a “clean” list, that would probably be super helpful for him.

    Stay tuned, as more stuff keeps coming almost every hour for this exploit.

     

    Features:

    * Possibility to load unsigned homebrews and modules.
    * Possibility to load plugins (NPEZ00176/GAME.TXT, NPEZ00176/POPS.TXT).
    * Possibility to play ISO/CSO with March33 and Sony NP9660 driver.
    * Possibility to get back to TNMenu by holding the START BUTTON for some seconds.
    * “CEF” renames “EBOOT.PBP” to “FBOOT.PBP”.
    * Protects you from removing license files. If these files get removed, you have to download the game from PSN Store again.
    So you may lose “CEF” for Urbanix, if the game already has been removed.

    - Custom Emulator Firmware 6.60 TN-A
    - for PSVita 1.81 with Urbanix Exploit
    - by Total_Noob

    - Instructions
    * At first you go straight to the PSN Store and DOWNLOAD URBANIX AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
    You’re lucky if you already own this mini/if the mini hasn’t been removed yet.
    YOU CAN GET IT FOR FREE WITH AN EU ACCOUNT: https://www.facebook.com/SonyPlaysta…23711397642076
    else just buy it.

    * Extract the “NPEZ00176″ folder to “PSSAVEDATA” and copy the new savedata to your PSVita with CMA.
    * Launch Urbanix game and after the savedata loading the screen should be flashed WHITE, before it automatically starts “TNMenu 0.1″.

    - About “Custom Emulator Firmware “CEF” 6.60 TN-A”
    Actually it isn’t correct to call it “CEF 6.60 TN-A”, because the kernel is always 6.60, but changes are within the PSVita Firmware. But anyways, it doesn’t matter how the CFW is called.
    -This “CEF” does NOT have anything to configure yet. All configurations of the previous Custom Firmwares are not available, as they are not useful for “CEF”.
    -It DOES NOT support PSX. By emulating 6.60 pops modules I get PSX working, but there is no sound, so better let it be.

    - About “TNMenu 0.1″
    This menu is developed with OSLib. IT IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT, so it may have some bugs.

    Control:
    * / to delete a file.
    * X to install a homebrew, or to load a homebrew/game. (by pressing R TRIGGER you load backup in march33 mode, else in sony np9660 mode)
    * Arrows to move.

    Prepare homebrews:
    * Create an ZIP archive of the homebrew, saved as: “FILENAME.ZIP/PSP/GAME/THISISAHOMEBREW/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 archives all in the “NPEZ00176″ folder.

    Install ISO/CSO:
    You cannot copy ISO/CSO with TNMenu yet. In the next version I’ll add this feature.
    * Prepare and install PSPFiler 6.6.
    * Copy ISO/CSO to the “NPEZ00176″ folder, UPPER CASE LETTER, 8 CHARACTERS LONG.
    * Copy/Move the backup file to “ms0:/ISO/” with PSPFiler.
    * Play it from TNMenu.

    - Donation
    If you want to spend me some snacks and drinks, you can donate me: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websc…ton_id=8158859
    Thank you

    - Bug reports
    * Can anybody please LEAD A CLEAN thread (best if he is moderator) somewhere on a forum, where users can write their questions, requests, bug reports and etc
    So I have got a better overview than if everybody is mailing me.

    - Some informations
    * This “CEF” IS NOT ripped off from Coldbird’s CFW. If you want to know something, I gave my “CEF” to a very important person from the PSP scene a long time before and this very “trusted”
    person sent my “CEF” to Coldbird. Coldbird naturally reversed my trick of using own modules (f0-kd-systemctrl.prx, etc). Thumbs up to this very important person.
    Anyways it doesn’t matter, I just wanted to tell you

    * The kernel exploit does only exist on Emulator Firmware. That’s why “Tony” released the flash0 dump, doesn’t he?

    * The source code will be released after a new PSVita Firmware release.

    - Credits
    * Dark_AleX, author of Custom Firmware: Thank you master for your impressive work, I always admired you
    * Thanks to the guy who found Urbanix Exploit.
    * Coldbird for “his” kxploit.

    I have confirmed that this works on a US Vita running FW 1.81

    P.s: Possibility maybe got something lost in translation (and no, not me) Maybe is possible instead of Possibility or Chance.

      It's gone unfortunetly...just keep an eye out for more exploits in the coming weeks and now inevitably there will be a 1.82 update out very soon.

      Can't you just redeem it? It's what I've done on the PC and then when I wanted to download on my PS3 (with 4.21 back then) I went to Download History.

      If I knew you I'd allow you to download the game off of my PlayStation account but I don't, so sorry.

      You can try redeeming the game via PC from MediaGo and then whatever if it doesn't work through the console.

      OK so I've done a lot of testing and for those that may be having problems, make sure the folder structure inside the .ZIP archives is PSP > GAME > HOMEBREWNAME > EBOOT.PBP (and all the other files required) as the default folder layout isn't like this which is why a) you may not see your homebrew archives and b) upon extraction, you will still not see your installed homebrew.

      Then for running ISOs just use the PSP/Vita FTP server and with a PC counterpart such as FlashFXP etc., simply create a folder named "ISO" in the root and then put your ISOs in there with everything in capitals/upper case and no more than 8 characters or it will not work. This rule also applies to homebrew ZIPs including the file extensions (.ISO or .ZIP).

      Everything I have tested has worked like a charm, mad props to Total_Noob and others involed who made this possible and a big FU to Sony for allowing the Japanese to play their already-bought PSP games and not even having to pay for some of them AGAIN unlike the rest of the world, pr*cks.

      well, the umd passport might be nightmare for Sony to offer, they need probably a lot of resources for little results (but it s good in terms of image)
      Last time i checked about this service, it was not free and i don t think people should blame Sony to give this kind of "bonus" service and not being able to make it world wide.
      It ll be like Sony blaming people to don t come to Japan, buy PSP and game and transfer them on their ps vita or blame the user in US. UE... because they ll try to con the service.

      Yeah I see what you're saying, but I remember when it first came out many games were $2-$3 for example and I have read on various forums that some games over the last 10 months have been made available for free once the game has been verified via the UMD Passport scheme.

      I live in the UK and on the PS Store here, I have just checked that GTA: LCS for example is �12 and I remember it was �20 when it was first available 6 months ago which is ridiculous considering I have already purchased a copy of that game.

      I just think they should've given a lot of discounts to people who invested in a PSP and bought games for it.

      Just Google "Vita FTP" (I got mine from zload), then put that on your Vita via Content Manager Assistant and then extract via the exploit in Urbanix...then get a FTP client for your PC such as FlashFXP. Once you have done all of that, run the Vita FTP server and it will give you an IP address (make sure you're connected with USB the whole time) and then enter that address into your PC FTP app and you can then transfer your ISOs or other files to your Vita.

      Thanks McLovin, now I'll patiently wait for the exploit to be applied to the USA version of Urbanix. It seems the method you're using isn't using the suugested homebrew "PSPFILER" and that's what interested me. Is there a speed difference or some other advantage to using Vita FTP in conjunction with a PC FTP client program?

      US Save has been done:

      Confirmed working and everything. I tested FF: Crisis Core ISO and it ran perfectly.

      For me personally I prefer FTP'ing things as you're literally migrating files from your PC to a device and that's it whereas with something like PSP Filer, it's more hassle IMO. PSP Filer is a great piece of homebrew though but purely for transfering files, FTP'ing is just easier.

      FTP speed was too slow... around 300-400kb/s
      i prefer using CMA and PSPFiler..

      Just too late actually, the game the exploit hooks onto has been taken down off the PS store yesterday.

      If I were a dev I would propably release a crappy game full of bugs to exploit and price it 20$.
