  4. Matteo says:

    The all version of hbl with wmenu crash on my psp slim 5.50 :( (the old version without wmenu work)

  5. ravander says:

    Why this is the recommended version for all models since rev 100-101 havent changed anything for psp 2000-3000 ?

  6. psp says:

    Hi wololo i have downloaded revison 101 for everybodys golf psp essentials and he snes emulator that your recemond on your 15 essential hombrews still dosent work

  7. wololo says:

    @ravander : you probably mean for the patapon exploit? For the golf exploit, revision 100 brought…well, it brought HBL for the first time on this exploit, and revision 101 fixes lots of issues, including for PSP 2000/3000.

    For the patapon exploit, it’s true, there’s nothing new, so you don’t have to update, but we won’t accept any bug report for any other version than revision 101. So basically if you stay on an old revision, you give up on the support m0skit0 or myself can offer. (Even if it’s not much)

    @psp: yes, this is a know issue (unfortunately). I’ll open a ticket on the googe code page

  8. sandesh says:

    thanks!!! i hope now it doesnt crash like it used to. so shuld homebrews like gpsp be running at full speed on the gold exploit?

  9. sandesh says:

    i’ve been playing around with this update for a few minutes now. umm.. homebrews take a bit longer to load than the previous versions and it crashed twice when i tried to go back to wmenu….

  10. kai says:

    good thanks
    @wololo: not support kr verion?

  11. sandesh says:

    omg!!! GBA emulators run perfect!!!! thanks

  12. wololo says:

    @kai : I didn’t know there was a korean version. If someone send us a UMD we’ll work on it.

  13. sandesh says:

    i still cant run my favourite homebrew on hbl… pspkvm :(
    it doesnt work on golf exploit.

  14. PSPFan says:

    Great work! Keep it up

  15. MB says:

    snes emu still freezes ain cuz i canup the psp go still, and gotta let the battery drain .

  16. psp says:

    hi wololo for the people who have been asking you how to make gpsp smooth the need to change the settings to this they need too turn frame skip type: off and the need to change audio buffer: 12288

  17. cscash241 says:

    are netmodules or whatever makes the internet work in homebrews still not working?

  18. need4speedplayer says:

    Thanks again wololo and the team :)

  19. SantanaClaus89 says:

    Hey wololo just wanted to let you know that I am running a PSP-3001 with 6.31FW using the PSN version of Hot Shots Golf (US) and HBL101 crashes every time on startup.

    It is detecting my firmware as version 712179.7x

    HBL100 worked great for me, btw.

  20. skullguy12 says:

    Thank you very much! 😉

  21. psp says:

    SantaClaus89 what you are saying is impossible the only thing i can think of is the libs folder check everything is named correctly there should only be the 5.xx and 6.xx libs file this is what detects your firmware

  22. cv says:

    maybe its reading a hexcode like 0x7121797a by accident and the detect fw thing prolly just displays what ever # is given, and things like ‘0’ or a letter at the begining isnt read and it just auto-matically adds a decimal before the last two characters, and it doesnt read chars like a-f as a value and replaces it w/ f.

    i think thats possible, but then again what do i know? :/

  23. cv says:

    it replaces it w/ x i mean ^_^”

  24. psp 3001
    OFW 6.30
    HSG OT UMD (US) *non greatest hits.

    still same problem. I load up the game, it starts to load, and BAM, the system shuts off. No HBL. No Golf. No nothing. What am I doing wrong? Am I being stupid? Or is my psp the hardest nut to crack?

  25. juan321 says:

    wololo why you had to forget of all who use the patapon exploit :'(
    I want to the hbl load external prx
    anyone knows how to play the psp gif images in the psp :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

  26. psp says:

    JoshaCaleb make sure your downloading the hbl for hot shots golf and not patapon

  27. psp says:

    juan321 wololo has to work on three diffrent exploits and he cant conecntrate on the patpon exploit and the golf exploit at the same type because they have sperate issues and seprate compatibilty promblems be patient

  28. Henry says:

    hello need help—-psp 3001 ofw 6.31, hot shots gols open tee us version umd—h.bin in root———savedata in savedata——hbl in root——downloaded hbl rev 101 still doesnt work loads to a black screen with the umd loading icon loading for 3 second then blacks out completely for some time before it shutdowns. Please help me i really been trying to get this to work thanks wololo for keeping us up to date really need your help here……..ARGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!

  29. psp says:

    henry download revison 101 from here you probally downloaded the patapon hbl

  30. SantanaClaus89 says:

    @psp not to sound like a jerk but don’t tell me it isn’t possible when I’m reading it right off of my PSPs screen.

    Anyway the whole point of my post was to let wololo know about a problem. I don’t see what I would gain by making something like that up.

    Thanks for the hard work wololo I’ll just keep running HBL100 for now.

  31. @psp yep, tried the hotshots HBL 101 dev and regular versions. still nothing:(

  32. psp says:

    JoshuaCaleb did revison 100 work for you

  33. psp says:

    SantaClaus89 read the whole comment before commenting

  34. cameraguy256 says:


  35. @psp nope. tried both dev and reg versions of 100 as well with no results. should I risk upgrading to OFW 6.31? since some people w/3001 OFW6.31 seem to have luck making it work

  36. psp says:

    JoshuaCaleb dont update to 6.31 i am not sure but i think it’s because you dont have the greates hits umd

  37. Google.bee says:

    I Can Run The N64 Emulator On On Rev 101 But Its Slow But It Works

  38. w7y7a7t7t says:

    thanks so much doesnt crash nearly as much, keep up the good work :)

  39. @psp great. so I wasted $10?

  40. Vandurol says:

    Fine, guys, I will buy the not Great Hits version and try to exploit it. It costs $5 by me.

  41. Psp says:

    JoshaCaleb wololo might fix this In later revisions

  42. Psp says:

    JoshaCaleb if you can refun the current hotshots golf I reccemond you refund it and buy the greatest hits version

  43. wololo says:

    @JoshuaCaleb : 10$ for a good game is not a waste. But, as people said, it might be that this version is slightly different from the “greatest hits” version that we used for the exploit. If people want to send me a copy of the “old” UMD, I’ll gladly work on it.

    @SantanaClaus89: This is a serious issue. I see how it can be happening, but I have no clue about the root cause. Unless I can reproduce this issue myself though, it will be tough to fix. Does it happen ALL the time for you?
    Edit: rename the folder libs_6xx to libs , and rename the file config/imports.config_6xx to config/imports.config. This should at least help you to run HBL even if firmware detection is messed up for you.

  44. cv says:

    haha see psp its not impossible, i think you should apologize to santaclaus89 :O

    keep up the good work wololo ^_^ when i learn programming hopefully i can jump on board your team of devs, right now im still pretty noobish at it :/

  45. Diego says:

    thanks !
    but, you forgot about others users =(
    psp 2000 & 3000 =(
    you only update HBL for go u.u or almost most of the updates u.u

  46. gemz says:

    there is a new Motherboard of PSP:TA-093 , i dont know if this cause the freeze.

  47. JT says:

    OFW 6.31
    HSGOT (PSN version)

    First off, many thanks to the HBL team for this release. You guys truly amaze me with every release. This PSPGo would be nothing more than a fancy mp3 player without your efforts! That being said, where are we on SNESxtyl? This emulator ran FLAWLESSLY on the Patapon exploit and I was hoping this could be up and running again soon. Small quibble though, as everything else I use works great and best of all, NO MORE BOOT CRASHES!!! Thanks again!

  48. ffdgh says:

    first off, thank u all for taking the time to make this.
    lol gotta say rev 101 really improved the gpsp rom speed compared to rev 100 =D. little to no lag at all from it!

    so again, THX!!

  49. ffdgh says:

    oh and im using a psp 3000 with ofw 6.31

  50. w7y7a7t7t says:

    ffdgh i hate to tell you this but the only difference is automatic frame skip now works, if you turned frame skip off before, it ran perfectly

  51. psp says:

    cv i said it migh have something to do with the libs file read my whole comment

  52. ffdgh says:

    i know but it lagged horrendously when i had it set up like that, now it doesn’t

  53. JJS says:

    Actually there is be a “speed up” for emulator in R101 compared to R100 on the golf exploit because sceCtrlPeekBufferPositive is now available there too (no need for the override in the config file anymore). Also the battery percentage will be correctly displayed.

  54. wololo says:

    @JJS : hmmm, I could swear Daedalus did use the override in my tests on a phat 6.31, I’ll test that again, to make sure I’m not missing something…

  55. wololo says:

    @JT: we’re working on it, we don’t know yet if a fix will be doable.

  56. JJS says:

    @wololo: You are correct. I missed that g->syscalls_from_p5 is also set in loadGlobalConfig(). So I stand corrected, the battery level is still overridden and the sceCtrlPeekBufferPositive override is still in effect for the golf exploit. Also this means perfect syscalls are not enabled on the 6.3x GO. I completely overlooked changing loadGlobalConfig(). Really sorry about this.

  57. wololo says:

    @JJS: don’t apologize, I missed it too!

  58. Awesome job with the Half Byte Loader. using it since its first release and I really appreciate all the hard work and time that you guys have poured into it.
    All the best! :-)

  59. TruenoBoy86 says:

    working on 6.20 3001 psp, both with patapon and somehow with no problem with the EU psn everybody golf on the on the same psp but still my triple triad the ff8 card game crashes :( can anyone help to make it work ?!?

    btw you r an epic existence wololo 😀 live long and thank you

  60. armacali says:

    no funciona hbl rev 101 en mi psp3001 ofw 5.51 exploit patapon

  61. psp says:

    Hi wololo when i load the snes emulator i relaise it say smething about the config file before it goes to the white screen

  62. yoshiFail says:

    Wololo, I want to marry you 😉
    Now I can finally play Wagic on my 6.31 PSPgo using the everybody’s golf exploit =)

  63. Gus says:

    I can’t get Daedalus to work. What version are you guys using? I have revision 576.

    Great release. Works great. PSP 2000 GOW edition

  64. @wololo I suppose I should try playing the actual game:) since I don’t think I can return it. and I look forward to future releases of HBL when this odd glitch will be fixed:)

  65. Xeon4 says:

    @Gus Use Daedalus R13 or R14

  66. Barry says:

    hi there, i do apologise if iam asking in the wrong place, but has anyone who has firmware 6.31 with rev 100 or 101 on a psp go been able to get sonic cd WITH the 44khz converted mp3s working?

    im having a frustrating time converting the mp3s and getting picodrive to run the game with music

  67. Wolfdawg says:

    don’t use Daedalus R13 or 14
    use daedalusx64
    try the first and the 2nd (not sure of the revision of the first)

  68. Danny says:

    @Wolfdawg …… DX64 for HBL is certainly way better than Daedalus R13/14 but dosent it keep on crashing?

    It crashes on my PSP-3003 6.20FW all the time

  69. APowerfulJedi says:

    OK I’ve been playing around with the UMD Hot Shots Golf (Greatest Hits) on a PSP 3000 with 6.30 tried both the Hello World and the latest Rev. 101 all I keep getting is the loading then Black screen before it shuts off the PSP shortly after. I tried to add just the files Data.bin and Param.sfo with the same results, then tried just the Data.bin same black screen then shuts off. So I figure the issue would be in the Data.bin file. Any help on this would be appreciated and thank you for everything you guys have been doing.

  70. Barry says:

    Is there anyone that can help? please?

  71. Yosafat says:

    wololo still working on the exploit of patapon 2?
    or no longer be necessary because it works well

  72. cv says:

    yosafat, it works very well but nt perfect, im sure hes still working on it

  73. cscash241 says:

    all we need now is to find a way to get internet access in homebrews working and well will be able to load most non kernel mode homebrews keep up the good work wololo, jjs, and all the other devs that are working on hbl

  74. Wolfdawg says:

    oh yeah I forgot, I think if you set override_sceCtrlPeekBufferPositive=0 on one of the revisions i wont crash every 5 or 10 minutes

  75. Marco Antônio says:

    Running rev.101 HBL (Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee “PSN”) Firmware 6.31 PSP Slim 3010 100%. Bookr tested and Pico Drive! I felt no difference between the exploit patapon 2. Thanks to developers. Good luck ahead!

  76. Mantinis says:

    Hello i have UCES-00012 Everybody’s Golf is it europe?

  77. Danny says:

    @Wolfdawg …… well Daedalus R14 will do fine for me for now, i hope maybe sometime down the line we are able to use DX64 without it crashing, if only hbl could load external prx files we could play DX64 B1 or B2.

    well heres to hoping.

  78. Danny says:

    @ Mantinis …. Yes it is, UCES < notice the 'E' stands for Europe

  79. Wolfdawg says:

    I don’t feel like being in this blog anymore (I has PSP 2000 now :p)
    Google is your best friend now

  80. shadow says:

    just want to say thank you for the HBL that you are providing,
    game HBL is working Fine. affects the movie system of the psp i can’t watch my new downloaded movies after i loaded HBL 101. please see to this.

    thank you and more power.

  81. pspivan says:

    does not rev 101 for patapon will not load I downloaded for my version and I had previously deleted that could help me I work in rev99

  82. cv says:

    i dont think hbl can even effect videos, i maybe wrng but
    1 your download could be corrupted (redownload)
    2 wrong video format, google psp compatible formats n converters
    3 you could have put things in wrong folder
    4 hbl r101may really affect it (I highly 99.9%doubt its possible)

    hopefully 1-3 can be a quick solution to your problem

  83. cv says:

    dont stress too much about it because if ur on patapon exploit r99 i think is just as good as r101, your nt really missn anythn

  84. ceris7356 says:

    I have a PSP 3000 with 6.31. Thank you so much for this! rev-101 is so much better than this one. Occasionally it will stay on a black screen after it pops up with the hbl loading stuff, requiring me to turn it off or go back to the XMB. Other than that no complaints!!!

  85. style says:

    ?? ???? ???. UCJS10001

  86. ???????? says:


  87. Noobie says:

    Hmm 100 works on mine (intermitently) 101 does not work at all.

    Psp 3003 woth Hot Shot golf us open tee.

  88. Teti says:

    @wololo I bought one of the us versions of the umd, the greatest hits version does work with hbl (the one that says greatest hits right on the disc). I am willing to donate the umd version of HSG that hbl currently does not work on if you still want it to take a look at it

  89. usabest says:

    Just Awesome!!! Great Job I’ve ever seen!!


    @Great Wholo,

    I can’t run the game named though .

    I’m using HBL r101 with Japan Golf 1.

    And my psp is F 6.31 and 3005.

    Can I run someday??

    Really hope FBA will be running on my psp!!! :)

    Thanks!!! Have a nice day~


  90. jirachi says:

    i have a few questions:
    hot shots golf exploit or patapon 2 demo
    I have a psp go 6.20 with the 2 games but.. what is better?
    is there any difference?

  91. yidrock says:

    am i to understand that hbl r101 on 6.31 doesnt run the mp3s on sega cd games in the picodrive emulator? im not sure if this is the exploit itself or im just not getting the 44khz conversion correct?

  92. Dos says:

    Hay today i was going to and its saying the website in not working

  93. ravitendo says:

    will it work on the demo of those golf game.

  94. FOL says:


    Im having trouble with my emulator when compiled with the latest psp toolchain. It fails to load, patapon2 demo and Everybodies golf exploits.
    They used to work on the old patapon2 demo exploit (release 92 If I recall).
    Since then they have never worked.

    Now my old compiles using a 3 year old psptoolchain work fine.
    Any idea’s?

  95. Allan says:

    I do not know what is happening with the snes, put the psp in REV 101, threw, but has some slow games, do not know what’s going on, someone tell me any tips?

  96. daveyboy87 says:

    Hey Guys,

    I have:

    PSP Go OFW 6.30 w/ Hot Shot Golf Open Tee Exploit & HBL 101

    Everything is work great, but I’m trying to find homebrews for SNES and Neo Geo. Now I know there’s an issue with snes9xtyl 0.4.2, but I just wanted to see if anyones tried anything else or have any suggestions, because I’ve tried UO Snes9x 0.02y33 but I for some odd reason there’s no menu option for me or I’m just missing it, so I can’t change the resolution or speed because the games horribly slow

    As far as Neo Geo goes I’ve followed must of the instructions I’ve found, got the bios, cached game using the cnv file, but when I try to boot it up I always get “error start SystemButtons.prx”

    Let me know you if guys have any ideas

    Thanks!! :)

  97. SleepboyGS says:

    thx to everyone involved into this, thx for their hard work and precious time.
