    Hi, i am glad to see that you are making progress with hbl but do you know if momosuke’s exploit for 6.30 that is being used to port hbl to 6.30 will be released soon?

  15. Tonch says:

    I’m not using the dev version so I know I can’t officially report a bug (I wouldn’t be sure how to properly go about it anyway), but using R97 and the emulator NesterJ (v 1.11) causes the menus to auto-scroll upwards. It didn’t do this with R96 (and I’ve since downgraded to try it).

    I just figured I’d throw this out there so someone else can look into it better than I can.

  16. Hey wololo, nice update for the wmenu. Question: Does this allow customization of the colors? Or do I still need to use my crappy homemade menu to customize colors?

  17. nicky says:

    many many congratulations Wololo Mosquito and friends is a great great job I’m happy this is on the right track like me could make a request to run the playlist 1.8 (karaoke) and 1.2 Jelly car does not freeze and run the new versions of psnake 7.1. … many greetings

  18. cheeze6661 says:

    @tonch: just zero out the force exit button in the hbl_config.txt. That’s what I had to do. It was making all my brew hit keys by themselves. I.E. the menu in Picodrive popping up every couple of seconds or Nester’s auto scrolling menu.

    If you zero that out, r97 works great.

  19. Tonch says:

    Good to know, thanks!

  20. cheeze6661 says:

    @tonch: 🙂 Not a problem. Keep in mind that this is still just a temp fix because all your doing is disabling the force exit feature added by wololo. But the hbl works fine. Can I guess that your using a psp3000? Just wondering…

  21. oxmudxo says:

    Another PSP update, its now at 6.31.. Just FYI.
    Wololo, I love ya but I really miss hearing about Wagic.

    Keep the Wagic rolling!

    Thanks wololo and Team!

  22. wololo says:

    @oxmudxo: don’t worry. Wagic updates are still happening. Less often than before, but the forum is more lively than ever and we get regular updates to the SVN. Check the forums, next release will have mulligan, more cards, etc…

  23. Tonch says:

    Yeah, a -3000 with OFW 6.20.
    But HBL does indeed work fine if I just comment out the force-exit feature with a #.

  24. Sillyjuly says:

    But I have never really used Half Byte Loader, I kept hearing about it on youtube videos.

  25. Shadyblue says:

    WOW!! you got alot of applications on your computer….if i may i would suggest you to get DellDock….its completly free and it will help clean up your desktops clutter….plus i think its kinda BAD@$$
    you can get it here http://www.delldock.com/
    if i didnt have a dell dock my computer would be worse than yours….

  26. jusintime says:

    did you know that with the explorer function you can load wMenu 0.2 if you have aside form hbl on your memstick i tried it and it was so weird

  27. Dex says:

    Can we expect to see a speedup of homebrews like Daedalus on the PSP Go? Its good that you’ve managed this speed upgrade but it sucks for us 3000 users.

  28. NsAnE says:

    Great work guys. I remember back at the beginning of the year when I got my PSP 3001 I updated my psp to 6.2 ofw without knowing wha tI was actually doing. Untill a few months ago I’ve regretted that act. I was checking the web everday, then I gave up hope. But when I found out they released 6.3, i knew there was some sort of ‘hack’. AND VOILA!!! Half-byte loader to the rescue…
    Umm… sorry about that shpeel. Kinda toldya my life story.. heh heh
    ANYWAY. Thank you guys, keep up the great work.

  29. titane2000 says:

    Hi Wololo! Can tell me why daedalus don’t work on my psp with the hblR97 and daedalusR13. I’ve a psp 3004 with OFW 5.55. Can you also make compatible the HBL with a popsloader to play my old PSONE game i’ve purchased and now if i want to play with it i’ve to pay another time to sony that’s not just.
    Thank for your answer

  30. Dex says:


    Daedalus R14 is the version that works with 3000:


    Well its the version that works on my 3000 anyway.

  31. Bmakk205 says:

    Daedalus r540 works gd job wololo n team

  32. Oaky180 says:

    Hey, Is there anyway to speed up the emulators? My gba emulator goes pretty slow at times and lags. Is there a fast one or is there a way to make it go faster? I don’t even dare try Daedulus.
