    I know i’m a total n00b at those stuff. I have a HUGE problem. Every time I try to run hbl it crashes. Why? I have a psp 3004 running 6.31. I saw w7y7a7t7t but I don’t understand. HELP ME!!!

  11. Reayn says:

    Hi Wololo, is it possible for you to update the README so we can follow the exact instructions on how to run HBL on the 6.31 using HSGOT (US) — Thanks much appreciated as always!!

  12. midnightexpress says:

    Hmm, there are guides poping up all over.

  13. Reayn says:

    @midnightexpress can you put a link to one of these guides…. I apparently cant find anything clear……

  14. need4speedplayer says:

    Thanks for the release of the EU version of HBL for Everybodys Golf. Picodrive Is running great with sound on my PSP Go. Thanks for your hard work and others porting this game to US and EU versions. Keep up the good work guys :)

  15. skullguy12 says:

    Yes it finnaly works.^^ What I done: Go to the download page(obvious xD) get the 6.31 hbl and freddy’s savedata exploit and copy ’em on the mem stick, then follow the steps from the update on the post.

  22. albadross says:

    @ wololo – suggestion re renaming folder hbl/libs_6xx to hbl/libs for EU version on slim running 6.31 did not work.

    But when I copied all files in hbl/libs_6xx into hbl/libs, HBL r100 worked!

  23. newguy says:

    sometime my psp stop and turn off why ??

    note:enter good to the hbl but sometimes not

  24. jerome127 says:

    worked well then i started to add emulators and roms and now dont work so well

  25. newguy says:

  28. PSP says:

    and continue so qu I’m sure thousands of people
    We are grateful to you and all your team
    sorry for my bad English XD

  30. cscash241 says:

    like the new hbl most homebrews run good but sometimes it shuts off it keeps doing it!! but usually if i delete the dblog witch is 0kb it works and so u know i am on the regular version not the debug thanx for creating this man u rock!!!

  31. cscash241 says:

    @w7y7a7t7t delete the dblog and delete all the libs folders except the one fo ur firmware and rename tht on for ur firmware libs and i did this on us version 6.31 and it loads more often

  32. Hector Gonzalez says:

    I for one thank wololo and the many people behind this project! congratulations! 100 revs already!

  33. MB says:

    Works fine on psp go fw 6.31 with eu psn everybody’s golf.
    SNES9x_TYL doesnt work though, whitescreen after booting.

  34. cscash241 says:

    o yea the idea i posted above always works just not the first time after u do it

  35. moai says:

    SNES9x_TYL isn’t working, it whitescreens for me too. I used the version linked in the “15 Essential Homebrews” post. Other things I’ve tried work fine. I’m running OFW 6.31 on a PSP 3001, btw.

  36. cv says:

    its a new hbl for a new fw, and new exploit so many homebrews bound to not work, dont complain, just donate to wololo and make him more motivated to code a new revision 😀

    btw happy anniversary hbl ^_^

  37. H2Otter says:

    Ditto on the SNES9x_TYL and daedalusX64 goes black if anyone can provide a link to the latest version for either (or info if these are not compatible yet) i would appreciate it big thumbs up to wololo for getting the HBL out thnx keep up the good work.

  38. w7y7a7t7t says:

    cscash241: after deleting the libs, it just crashes all the time?

  39. frfrtesr says:

    im a big fat dawg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. Swannyman17 says:

    Same on the SNES emulator. It’ll get worked out soon guys! Have hope!

  41. w7y7a7t7t says:

    Snes emu doesnt work for me neither, but kai gpsp does and all my snes games asside from mario kart and crono trigger are on gba :0

  42. jerome127 says:

    i am on a psp go with ofw 6.30 and the only emulator i have working half decent is gpSP kai 3.2

  43. ronel says:

    @ yeah snex not working can someone give a list of homebrew that works with HBL 6.31….counterstrike is awesome!

  44. ronel says:

    my gpsp kai says i need bios i need help

  45. ronel says:

    zrisis and emumaster are working but i dont know how to use them

  46. cscash241 says:

    i have got a gba emulator working but it runs slow i like that a lot of things work but they are just slow and buggy but soon they will be fixed and i have no reason to complain and dosbox seams to be running good and qmixer never crashes like it did sometimes on the patapon exploit before i upgraded to 6.31

  47. cscash241 says:

    @w7y7a7t7t keep the libs for your fimrware and delete the other folders and rename the folder you still have to libs instead of libs_6xx or whatever

  48. frfrtesr says:

    whos a big fat dawg? im a big fat dawg

  49. kain says:

    I guess i’ll ask again if anyone can direct me to a tutorial on how to install this on a psp with 6.31 . I would like to upgrade to 6.31 because you can’t use remote play without the upgrade and I am going to travel on the 19th of this month and would like to access my ps3 during this time . remote play is unavailable without 6.31.

  50. Urahara72 says:

    @wololo sorry im such a noob, but i can’t seem to get the save file to show up. help please?

  51. w7y7a7t7t says:

    cscash241: alright i tried what you said and its seems to be working, plus i got gba emu running 100%, just go into options turn off frame skip and disable that thing that makes it smooth ;p

    Kain: i wouldn’t update yet as its not as compatible with as many homebrews but ill explain best i can. take h.hin downloaded here:
    put it on the root of your psp.
    next put the hbl folder on the root of your psp

    adding homebrew:

    first navigate to root/psp/games place your homebrew here

    installing savedata exploit:

    first buy hot shots golf
    next download the exploit here:
    next unzip the file and place in this directory: root/psp/savedata/ if the folder already exsists replace it.

  52. jean says:

    everybodys golf shutting down my psp why ? what wrong someone please help im going to be crazy :(

  53. w7y7a7t7t says:

    jean: same thing happened to me just follow what cscash241 said above and that should help but it still does crash at start up like 35% of the time. or you can keep trying it will work eventually :)

    P.S. also i discovered you can pause and resume homebrew, i tought it was kinda usefull ;p

  54. jean says:

    my friend i tried about 100 times i still trying i hate everybodys golf now its not working :(

  55. jkl says:

  57. Spidey_BR says:

    Thanks in advance.

  58. jerome127 says:

    does anyone know if you can play ISOz with picodrive ?

  59. Calum says:

    I’m from the UK, I cannot find “Everybody’s Golf” on the PSN store on my PSP Go. I can only find two versions of “Everybody’s Golf 2″

  61. Dan says:

    Amazing job once again to evryone involved in HBL. Man I thought when I updated to 6.31 that I would have to say goodbye to my homebrew but you guys came through!

  62. Calum says:

    ok, I found it. Is the PSP Essentials version the one that this works for?

  63. Andrew says:

    Is there a way to sign on to psn without losing hbl?

  64. Andrew says:

    Oops, I meant without upgrading my 6.20 fw.

  65. Calum says:

    @Andrew if you want to use the store couldn’t you use MediaGo?

  66. jean says:

  67. dan says:

    dear wololo, first let me start by saying im a huge fan of your and all the other devs who made hbl possible, thank you
    now that the new explites are out i was just wondering if you guys are going to continue work on patapon2 ?

  69. PLAYSTATION says:

    hi wololo i loaded up the snes emulator for the everybodys golf exploit and all it give me is a white screen it dosent switch of autmotically i have to take the battery out

  70. PLAYSTATION says:

    hi calum to get everybodys golf you have to go to the psp essentials category

  71. PLAYSTATION says:

    hi calum to get everybodys golf you have to go to the psp essentials category and you should find it there

  72. PLAYSTATION says:

    sorry double comment

  73. PLAYSTATION says:

    zombie crisis frezzes when you chosse the diffculty on everybodys golf exploit

  74. PLAYSTATION says:

    cspsp runs well but when i go online and chosse connection it frezzes for everybodys golf exploit

  75. Is it worth it to update from 6.20 to 6.31?

  76. blodia says:

    gpspkai and PCEP works pretty good on my 6.31 go. I’m excited to find that I can sync up a ps3 controller and connect my go to a TV for some old school living room gaming. That said, is there any way to stretch the image on my TV? Also is it possible to enable multiplayer support with one player using the go and another using a ps3 controller?

  77. Wolfdawg says:

    can I get an image of my psp on my laptop screen?
    I think you need kernel access

    I could just buy a cord, but my TV sucks

  78. Wolfdawg says:

    aw man :(
    I found remotejoy, but you need CFW
    I can has hacksbles PSP?

  79. moai says:

    For those of us having trouble with SNES9x_TYL: I found a different SNES emulator that works for this, uo_SNES9x. The only problem is that it seems to run pretty slow. If anyone’s interested, you can get it from Ruka’s homepage.

  80. xXSEEKERXx says:

    as of today hsgot is still not patched. just giving a heads up for newcomers.

  81. nmagod says:

    I’ll test PicoDrive (it only works with SEGA CD ISO FILES, NOT PS1 OR PSP SO DON’T BOTHER, RETARDS) as soon as I have my Go updated and the launcher opened.

  82. JT says:

    I can confirm that HSGOT hasn’t been patched as of 09/09/10 5:57pm CST. I have the US PSN version running r100 without too many problems aside from random boot crashes. PSP Go OFW 6.31 test results below.

    Doom : Works great
    NesterJ : Played SuperMario3 with no issues (working)
    Picodrive : slowdown issues when compared to running on Patapon 2 exploit, barely playable.
    SNESxtyl – Crashes upon boot to white screen. Anyone know of a SNES emu that works with decent speeds?

  83. nmagod says:

    PicoDrive does indeed work, including the save/load state function. No sound on the PSP Go, naturally, because that’s one of its limitations on the device.

  84. nmagod says:

    Hey JT, have you tried changing some settings in PicoDrive? Set the renderer to fast or accurate? That often makes something play faster. Also try disabling each of the sound emulation functions, even though there’s no sound, they’re still running unless you stop them.

  85. pancho260 says:

    Wololoo! please try to import the hack to Hot Shots tennis! I beg youu!

  86. GR1 says:

    Hey all. Here is a archive with some homebrews that work 100% with this exploit/hbl ————>

  87. Bvlgari says:

    Hi i have a psp 3003 slim is it possible to run ISO games with r100?

  88. Dazman says:

    uo_Snes9x for PSP 0032 works on my psp go.

    I have 6.20 and used everybodys golf hbl. even starfox 2 works.

    Best 6 bucks I ever spent.

    Going to update to 6.31 now.

    Thanks wololo and all envoled. I love reliving my younger days on my psp.

    Cant wait for updates.

    Also, can the eboot be changed to not have music in xmb and also the pic changed. So it looks like hbl off the xmb.


  89. Bvlgari says:

    Hi i have a psp 3003 slim is it possible to run ISO games with r100?

  90. cobaltex says:

    for people using the patapon 2 hbl go here: for a modified version of the eboot that i’ve reduced to 46.9mb, and yes it still works fully.
    P.S., wololo, if you know of a good tut for learning hex editing could you let me know about it, currently i’m a complete beginner and only know how to insert and delete code but am looking to try my hand at more complex hex editing.

  91. Dazman says:

    Using psp content manager you can edit the eboot and remove sound and all pics and add your own icon, it then saves the eboot to location of your choice, just copy it back to psp and it no longer looks like everybodys golf game.

    Not sure about changing the text, i will try it and post if it works or not.

    I love the fact you just load the game and bang, HBL menu opens up. I love this game choice for HBL. works great on 6.20.

  92. ben says:

    hello i can’t run hbl r100 on my psp 3004 in ofw 6.31 for everybody’s golf my psp freeze and i’ve tried to rename folders and file
    please do you have any solution ?
    i ‘m a novice

  93. newguy says:

    @GR1 great man i be waiting some like a compablility list but this is better xD
    i see in internet run isos whit digital commic???? this is true or false

  94. Mamimi says:

    -I have Hot Shots Golf Open Tee (US, UMD)
    -I have a PSP 2001, firmware 6.30
    -I downloaded the correct files (though the read me still refers to Patapon 2, so I can’t be 100% sure, but I downloaded from the correct links)
    -I installed the files in the correct places
    -HSG:OT starts to load, the screen goes black, the PSP turns off

    I don’t know if this information is helpful, but i thought I’d bring it up here. And if anyone has any useful suggestions for me to get this running, feel free to post them. 😉

  95. Lorz says:

    @newguy…. I think what you’re talking about is mars loader…. and tbh this is still a bit of a mystery… some say it works, others say it doesn’t……. in any case it’s hard to find any solid information about it except for a few youtube vids which could easily be fakes or the real thing who knows….. but as Wololo says….. until it has a release, consider it a fake… and when /if it ever gets released, if it does even half of what they claim….. news about it will be all over the place.

  96. toBsucht says:

    THANKS WOLOLO !!! 100 if i got my paypal i´ll make a donat;)
    @Dazman great this exactly what i search thanks, to u
    maybe take it into the download list.

  97. rcdash says:

    I have psp 3004 -6.31. i do not have any UMD for hot shot golf or everyday golf or mina no. can i run HBL in my psp using patapon demo 2

  98. wololo says:

    @rcdash no, you need hot shots golf or everybody’s golf

  99. FOL says:

    Just to let you all know.

    PSP Go! 6.31 using Everbodys golf (under PSP Essensials) works still.
    I downloaded the EU version from PSN this morning and HBL works fine.

    I updated my Go, after I backed up my Phats nand and updated that to 6.31 to see if game was still exploitable.

    Hope this info helps some others, :).

  100. cscash241 says:

    there seams to be a compatibility issue with the debug version of the hotshots golf exploit sorry for spaming this every ware but i thought everyone should know about it so it can get fixed

  101. -Sp>>d- says:

    List of homebrew i have that works on R100…

    -[BattleGrounds 3] AWESOME GAME- crashes when you quit

    -[Doodle Jump PSP 1.3] the game is ok… sort of slow… game crashes on exit

    -[CSPortable 0.75] AWESOME game… the could make the bots buy ammo though… the run out and jump around with a knife…. Has multiplayer…
    This is maybe my best game

    -[Cave Story] AWESOME GAME

    -[Deadulus R14 beta] AWESOME… runs slow… you might have to google how to make deadulus run faster.

    -[Kitten Cannon]Not the best game… but it runs on R100 (no quit button :O

    -[Mh GPSPkai] awesome GBA emu works well… the 2 times speed doesn’t work very well…

    -[Rag doll Cannon] Its really good but the cannon has to charge up half wrecking the point of it… still fun though…

    -[Wagic] Works perfect… been trying to learn how to play…

  102. H2Otter says:
