Half Byte Loader R107

Thanks to the work of JJS, J416, Neur0n, and with the help of the great community at /talk, great improvements have been made to HBL. Yes, we are aware that the upcoming Hen will change many things, but we also know that HBL remains the only way to run homebrews on new PSP models until that release, so we’re still around!

People who own Hot shots Golf 2, Everybody’s golf 2, or Minna no golf 2 will be happy to learn that we now officially support these exploits in the latest HBL revision. Due to a lack of testers on 6.30/6.31 though, we cannot guarantee that it will be as good as the experience on the Patapon2 version, but we’ll get there. Especially, we believe that the compatibility will be better with hot shots golf 2 than with Hot shots golf 1, due to the imports of the game (in particular, network).

People who run HBL on older firmwares haven’t been forgotten, homebrew compatibility has been improved, and some awesome games such as Mobile Assault or Transport Tycoon Deluxe now run on HBL!

Mobile Assault, featured on this video, can be downloaded from the developers’ website.

Thanks to developer neur0n, a bug has been fixed in the original Patapon2 exploit. This requires you to download the Patapon2 savegame once again, as usual on the HBL download page. This new savegame will most likely increase some compatibility, and I believe all other savegame exploits we have might need the same fix. We will try to fix them asap. If you are interested in the technical details behind this change, please have a look at the discussion on our forums.

We are getting less test reports than we would expect on firmwares 6.3x. Further progress on HBL on the hots shot golf 1&2 exploits directly depend on your feedback, so don’t hesitate to leave test reports on our test forums.

As you probably know, I’ve announced a while ago that we would make less releases, and release only when we think a revision is worth it. R107 is one of those. Note however that Mr X. is kindly compiling binaries usually as soon as the code gets committed to the SVN. If you’re craving for bug fixes, that’s the place to go, otherwise I suggest you wait for “official” releases such as this one.

Please note that due to personal lack of time, I was only able to test this revision on a pspgo with the patapon2 exploit, I haven’t tested any of the other binaries. If you have any issue, please feel free to ask questions here or in the HBL forum. I want to thank again all the devs and testers involved in that project, in the past, the present, and the future :)

Download here, as usual, and enjoy your homebrews :)

    @juan321
    the crash on exit has been mostly fixed r109, you can exit and load other homebrew, but trying to start gpsp again causes an error then returns to hbl.

    @brdzoman Why do you want to use a PSP emulator on PC when you can use your PC emulators which work better?
    Well,anyway.If you want to control your PC emulators,or any game which you have on your PC,you can use WiFi Controller.Im not sure if it works anymore,I havent used it for awhile,but you can try.
    Good luck!

    @brdzoman
    use a ps3 controller

    im sure you can use your psp, most programs that you use (or would use) would be configured already, say like a small game made just for to be controlled by the psp (like remote joy) and you couldn’t control anything else with the psp.

    so you would need a different kind of program, a program to activate the psp as a controller in windows. just like with the PS3 controller, you then use xpadder to map the controlls for what it does on your PC

    so either, find a program that makes the psp reconizable by windows as a gamepad and map it with xpadder, or get somebody to code the psp buttons with the emulator. which might need hen

    @wololoue feel proud that your widely known now

    On March 29, 2010, a user-mode exploit was revealed in the demo of the game Patapon 2.This was quickly followed by the public release of “Half-Byte Loader”, a piece of software allowing to load homebrew software on all PSP models (including the PSP Go) running firmwares less than 6.30. HBL has also been ported to Everybody’s Golf, allowing HBL to run on 6.30 and 6.31 firmwares.
