Happy New Year!

I wish a happy new year 2011 to everyone reading this blog :)

Many thanks go to the PSP scene, in particular all devs, testers, and users of Wagic and HBL. These two projects have been a major part of my life for the past 3 years, and they wouldn’t be so cool without the support of the community.

Thanks to people who donated for Wagic and HBL. This year, part of the money was used in a PS3 dongle (which I gave away on this blog), and I sent the rest to Wikipedia and the Red Cross.

  • (From the wikipedia FAQ) Wikipedia is the world’s largest and most popular encyclopedia. It’s online, free to use for any purpose, and free of advertising. Wikipedia contains more than 17 million volunteer-authored articles in over 265 languages, and is visited by more than 408 million people every month, making it the fifth most-popular site in the world. It is a collaborative creation that has been added to and edited by millions of people during the past nine years: anyone can edit it, at any time. It has become the largest collection of shared knowledge in human history. The people who support it are united by their love of learning, their intellectual curiosity, and their awareness that we know much more together, than any of us does alone.
  • Red Cross: The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is an international humanitarian movement with approximately 97 million volunteers, members and staff worldwide which was founded to protect human life and health, to ensure respect for all human beings, and to prevent and alleviate human suffering, without any discrimination based on nationality, race, sex, religious beliefs, class or political opinions.

In 2010, we released 4 major updates to Wagic (the latest one is 0.14.1, it rocks and I highly recommend you download it, it’s hundreds of hours of fun for free). 3 user mode exploits were publicly released (Patapon, Hot shots golf, Minna no sukkiri) and you’ve seen HBL growing from a proof of concept to a full blown exploit-independent loader that supports 90% of homebrews. The year ended with a bang with the release of Total_Noob’s Hen, the first time we got Kernel access on the PSP Go, and the symbol of freedom for all users who had been waiting since the last kernel exploit by Davee almost 2 years ago.

And guess what? Despite this, you’ll still find people to say that the PSP scene is dead (of course, people who’ve been in the scene long enough know that the scene has been said to be dead for the past 4 years already…I think the first time I read “the scene is dead” is when firmware 1.51 was released :) )

For new year’s eve I had to watch Arashi for hours with my wife and her family… how about you?

      you know men! some 6.3X are very polite in asking! u can tell it politely right in ur way of saying u feel like ur the boss?!


    3. sevy_philippines’s avatar

      iso loader is not possible on hbl in 6.35,.,.
      loading iso needs a kernel exploit,.,.
      and the exploit in 6.35 is only a user mode exploit,.,.

    “Happy New Year” From China,but today is January 2 in China…..


  9. Spider-Monkey’s avatar

    Back to school next week!! :D Now time will pass faster and maybe the 6.3x hen/downloader will come unexpected for me :D Oh and yeah Wagic will also help pass my time too(it’s addicting!!). Wagic is just so well made!! :D

    The psp scene legitimately died right after firmware 5.03, because after that everyone who had an exploit kept it for themselves… *cough*DAVEE*cough*… that guy’s a real douche, most people defend him and say “he only did it because people wanted ISO support!”, but i really think he’s a douche, I mean he stopped the HEn for 5.03 (he had an unreleased r3) then when he got the 6.10 HEn he acted like *fuck you i have a HEn and you don’t bitches!!” I mean the guy did great with 5.03, and his hacking skills are good, and i respect him for it, but god… he’s an ass hole, and i hope he knows that…. He disappointed A LOT of people


    1. Spider-Monkey’s avatar

      Well,Wololo and TN ain’t like that. They do staff for free and they care for the people that have 6.35 and making everybody happy. But apparently some are not satisfied with HBL and being an asshole and want a Hen ASAP. So if your worry that TN wouldn’t make any thing for 6.35, think again because he will do something for us :D


    2. Thanatos’s avatar

      Hey, idiot, if you wanted a HEn so badly, and you feel good enough to call people who are actually trying to help idiots, why didn’t you make your own?


    3. equis’s avatar

      Those words can not have credibility if not said by Davee himself. You speak by others, calling them whatever you want, and You are not a scene protagonist.
      I feel the scene dies everytime people speak like you do.


  11. dropslack’s avatar

    Happy New Year wololo! Thanks to you the PSP hackers and developers.

    You gave us the best gift on 2010. God Bless You all.

    May the freedom be with us..


  12. Hunter’s avatar

    Happy New Year, and thank you Wololo, m0skit0, Total_Noob, Davee, Dash-hacks, Sony(yes, Sony) vFlame, Liquidzigong, exophase, Takka and all developers who worked on unlocking Sony’s wonderful little gadget again.

    Oh, and since I’m only 16, I can’t donate directly to TN, so I sent $30 to the Red Cross. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  13. jamoer’s avatar

    well, thanks a lot to sir Wololo and the team, your great work on HBL make a deep sense to us, thanks your HBL ,use homebrew is possible, ISO or CSO just a little part , the most important part is we are free to use our own psp . thanks again . and happy new year by the way

    2. NEHAshu’s avatar

        1. ffdgh’s avatar

  17. Abdullah’s avatar


    I just remembered that a person called “sonyspy1″ on youtube had made a PSP 3000 6.20 to 5.03 Downgrade. I forgot to tell you this. For all those people out there, he is on 6.20 OFW. Can you confirm this please? He said that devs can get there hands on this.


    Sorry for going off-topic.


    1. Covert’s avatar

      It’s Fake.


      1. Abdullah’s avatar

        Are you sure because the XMB colours changed which shows that the PSP had been restored to default settings.


  18. cscash241’s avatar

    hey wololo did u know about davee’s downgrader http://twitter.com/daveeftw


  19. yellow’s avatar

    hey all you 6.3xusers you will be happy to hear this read up:Dave wants to Total_Noob sometimes comes into play:
    Therefore, he will release his Downgrader maybe tomorrow!
    He has it on a PSP go tested and is probably on other devices functions.he also wrote on his Twitter account that he was almost finished.


  20. solideater’s avatar

    esoooooo feliz año para todos q la pasen muy bien y tengan felices fiestas¡¡¡¡¡ gracias a todos¡¡¡¡


  21. Abdullah’s avatar

    Davee is releasing a downgrader for PSP Go 6.3X tomorrow and he has tested it on his PSP Go.

    Wololo, i need your advice. I have a PSP Go with 6.20 TN-B HEN and i want to see if Davee’s downgrader works 6.3X. Should i upgrade or not?


    1. cscash241’s avatar

      i am not wololo but i would say no because there is like 10% chance of bricking (probably more on anything but a psp go on 6.31) i however am going to try this because i am already on 6.31 and my psp came on with version 5.70 (i wouldn’t try to downgrade a psp lower than a fw it came out the box with)


  22. yellow’s avatar

    @Abdullah calm down just wait and see what this downgrader can do i hear it will maybe be release tomorrow just be patient and it could be just for 6.31 or 6.35 so dont upgrade until its release.


  23. JeeVeS’s avatar

  29. JDMDingo’s avatar
