Release: Hen for 6.31/6.35 by Virtuous Flame & Coldbird

Update: many people are reporting problems running homebrews, I’m sure this will be quickly solved in the next revision

Note: the version on this page is an updated version directly sent by Virtuous Flame himself, it is even “fresher” than the one on a9vg :)

Chinese developers  ?????? (Virtuous Flame) and Coldbird posted a Hen for 6.35/6.31 a few hours ago on a9vg.com. Although I tested it quickly and could confirm it works on my PSP3000, I didn’t have the time to write a nice download page or even to update any of the Hen FAQs yet.

This Hen includes code to benefit from the extra 32MB of Ram :)

Many thanks to Virtuous Flame, and enjoy your gaming on 6.35 :)

How to install/run



  1. download and install HBL for the sukkiri exploit here
  2. download the Hen here for 6.35, or here for 6.31 (or alternate link here for 6.35, or here for 6.31)
  3. replace hbl/menu/EBOOT.PBP with the EBOOT.PBP from the Hen
  4. Enjoy

Source a9vg.com, thanks to tabootang for the tip!

Let me remind you that a HEN (Homebrew Enabler) is a tool that allows you to run homebrew software (fan-made freeware games and tools) and should not be used in conjunction with tools that infringe on intellectual property.

    If anyone’s still having issues with 6.35 HEN I just used Coldbird’s nightly build of 6.35 PRO http://blog.coldbird.co.cc/?p=372 and it contains everything you need for 6.35 HEN setup (HBL, ISO loader, and even the demo and exploitable save file).

    The only thing I swapped out was the Prometheus ISO loader under PSP/GAME/PLoader. It was showing version 0.0 whereas the one I already had displayed 0.1.

    So far everything is working fine on my PSP Go. If I need PSN access I just reboot out of HEN temporarily.

    6.31 hen works perfectly but i’ve just got a question: mow much does in average my psp go battery? And while using this hen and playing isos is it possible to say my battery rans out faster than playing other games? Can u help me?

    Reply

    1. Noth’s avatar

      Umm… I would think you use less power running a game off ISO than off UMD since the UMD drive is a mechanical device.
      So No. I don’t think it’s possible.
      That said there are games which use a lot more power than others, regardless of being run from ISO or UMD.

        @ Noth
        Thanks, in fact i have a psp go and it was just a sensation that when running isos my battery seemed to run out faster than playing normal games somehow i think the battery wasn’t full charged and I left the psp in stand by mode like for 18 hours neverthekless i could play tenchu and gta for almos 5 hours lol, thanks

      If you mean that it freezes when you put it into sleep mode, then it’s just a bug because it happens to me too. It would freeze when I take it out of sleep mode and I have to power it off.

        I think not all isos are compatible, for me some work and others don’t.
        Be sure to see if any incompatible plugin is turned on too, I tried some and crashed all games.

    Reply

    1. Matt’s avatar

      Try other games (homebrews and emulators). If they run ok, maybe the iso loader is corrupted. If all games crash, that’s probably you have some plugin installed in “game.txt” that’s not compatible with the HEN.
      Hope this helps

    and with regards to iso compatibility, i have tried all of my legal iso back ups (gow ghost of sparta, naruto akatsuki rising, tekken 6, tekken dark resurrection etc,)

      Paul, I’m running OFW 6.31/HEN and the prome loader, and I have some ISO’s that work perfectly, also some CSO’s. However most of the ISO’s I have do NOT work.
      It seems very picky about the ISO/CSO and the driver. I have yet to see anything work with M33 driver, all the working ones I found worked with np9660.
      I know the working ones work perfectly as I have played them for hours on end without glitches.
      Oh an I’m on a PSP-GO N1004.
      So my guess is that you need to rip the ISO’s differently, would not know how though as I did not make the ISO’s I have that work.

    Does anyone have a MVSPSP version that does not crash on this HEN? I’m almost considering going back to HBL because of MVSPSP not working…
    I’ve tried both user and kernel mode ones, versions fromm 2.0.6-2.2.1-2.2.2-2.3.1 all crash but 2.3.1 crash loading mvspsp itself, and 2.3.1 crashes loading a game…
    If someone has a working one, please post a link :)

    I am running PSP_GO 6.31 hbl-r112 Sukkiri_exploit with HEN631

    ISO_loader -> Prometheus_Iso_loader

    I have the same problem with ISO/CSO’s they are saying that the ones that don’t work were patch with Takka’s PSP ISO Tool, so i was wondering
    will Takka update the ISO Tool with a patch undo function for HEN user.

      no dude, stick to 6.20 for now as TN’s hen is much stable and will have a new release (TN-HEN C). i envy you guys with 6.20 ofw. cause mine has already has 6.31 when i bought it.

      Reply

      1. noth’s avatar

        *nodding* absolutely, both my psp’s unfortunately were 6.31, I checked every unit they had in the store looking for a 6.20.. even tho TN-A was not released yet, but I knew it was coming.
        Afaik the TN-HEN is much better than the HEN6.31 – you have plugins, vsh menu, and better homebrew compatibility, plus you can fake the FW version..
        imho the HEN6.31 has very low homebrew compatibility, most emulators do not run on it… ISO’s do however with the prommie loader.

    Is it recommended to upgrade from 6.31 to 6.35 ?
    Does it work better ?

    Reply

    1. equis’s avatar

      In my point of view, is not recommended that you update, @Parma. Despite the fact that 6.35 PRO HEN has more compatibility and being able to run plugins, there is probably coming a downgrader to these systems (rumors), but some guys say downgrading from 6.35 is not possible. My advice: wait some time.

    WOLOLO can u plz make a tn hen for ofw 6.31 (for psp go )

  26. SwoRNLeaDejZ’s avatar

    OK, i had an idea, somewhat in the spirit of TN-B (HEN) for 6.20. So, would it be possible, in 6.31 PRO, to use a program like PSPFiler to edit flash0:/vsh/etc/version.txt and replace the 6.31 information with the 4.05 or 5.00 information, and then run the PSP 5.03 Update so that you can use ChickHEN R2 to install some GEN Firmware? I know that in 6.35 it isnt possible to run an update lower than your version, but i havent heard anything about 6.31 being blocked. The only issue i have run into so far, is that PSPFiler can access, and edit, version.txt, but it can not save the file correctly. Once i save it, when i go back into it, the 6.31 version.txt information is there again.

    Maybe someone can point me in the direction of some sort of homebrew that can actually SAVE version.txt, so that I can try this (i will sacrifice one of my 3000s because i have two of em) because i am gung ho about this possibility. This would be quite the breakthrough in the PSP scene.

    So if anyone out there knows of a homebrew, or a method, to save to flash0:/vsh/etc/version.txt so i can get cracking on trying to “DownDate” (the opposite of Update) i call it. Anyone who has any ideas, drop a line to tradekillas@aol.com and lets get it going :D

    Hello everyone, I need some advice. I have a PSP with OFW 6.35, what is the best way for me to get MAME on my psp? By getting HEN on my PSP does it allow me to run other Emulators easily or is it more for PSP games only? I would love to be able to play Killer instinct on my PSP if its possible and maybe add a SNES emu for a slice of Mario and DK action to! Sorry for the dumb sounding questions but Iam knew to this kind of stuff on the PSP. If this is all possible please tell me the best/latest versions of the emulators for my PSP.
