    Hey no fair picking on ScummVM! Getting our plugin system to use PRX would take a LOT of work, so if HBL can do it and most homebrew players have CFW or HEN, that’s a lot of work I don’t have to waste time on.

      @Bluddy: I truly expect my comment on scummVM wasn’t seen as an insult. ScummVM is easily in my top 5 homebrews (I’m sure you can find comments from me that date back to 2006 on the scummVM forums).

      So my comment was more: “damn, we can sign homebrews, but my favorite one is missing the fun”

    what if i use this brand new HBL with my 6.31 OFW
    and start the allmighty Prometheus Iso Loader ? would this work ?

  3. jammy

    Can I change my psp gamboot on a 3001 runninp 6.20 TN-C or will it brick since it has something to do with flash 0

    • Ioan

      Use the MyRandomGameboot plugin. I tested it in my psp go 6.20 and works well.

    • LUISDooMER

      i use mybootlogo plugin and works great in my psp 3001, yesterday i´ve made the ps1 and ps2 boot logo screen (because i was searching a lot of time on google and i just find broken links) and the plugin works great.

    Great!!! Now we just have to wait until Sony releases the new OFW 6.38 wait a few days and have a new 6.38 HBL. This is a great notice for those who update his PSP

  7. Skykrost

    Great work..


    I want to have HBL.. I have the psp 2000 fully hacked. Can I use this? I love the PSP scene and not just the homebrews but the history of homebrews. I want to use this.

      I have a bad feeling with the Davee’s downgrader since it was about two hours ago after Davee announce it via Twitter but nor Wololo announced it. I have to say that its fake. Davee probably is messing with us. I’m gonna take what I wrote if this is really real 😀

      • joejoejoe

        Dude, exactly ONLY 2 hours, It’s legit, it’s Davee he revived the psp scene with his HEn, his HEn was amazing, the best HEn ever

  9. ivanxx

    Customize your hen or iso loader

    Open eboot.pbp with pbp unpacker and add these files

    -back up your eboot first-

  18. mr-crazy

  19. Alexander

  20. toBsucht

    2 all on a ofw 6.37
    Fake_NP: put your HomeBrew into NPdemo (or iso up to 120mb)
    it isn´t easy but looks like possible. btw more than 100 signed HB´s.
    Thanks for rt

  21. OMightyBuggy

    Any news on a 6.37 HEN? I really want a loader to play my backups and not carry 40 UMDs.

    • toBsucht

      OMighty times play 4 u XD have u take a look to the fake np if u manage to sign your backup u can may play some. If the backup is a littel more than 120 doesn´t matter becouse u can shrink images 4example patapon2 by cobaltex & splash down from ~100 to 50 MB. Good luck 2 u and the other 6.37 user.^have look and see the big signed hb list it tooks a long time 2 run all the hb with the hbl.

    Any ideas is it that stuff works on Nintendo Wii? Here was mentioned that its for Wii as well and other consoles. I would like to test it to run homebrew on wii. Is it possibe that i can screw up something with that program in console? How i should place the files on wii? In the same way to same location? I am not sure is it the wii has the same names folders. Probabli not the same folders… Do i need to rename some folders then?

    Any suggestions will be a aprishiated.

    do you think that OpenIdea ISO loader could be used as some sort of stepping stone for the HBL r113, since it lets u work with eboots?

  29. dan

    sorry if this is a stupid question, but if people can port pc games like doom, quake 2 and duke nukem 3d, would it be possible to port a game like vampire the masquerade bloodlines to the psp, (or psp2 when it comes out) that would be awsome ^_^

  30. monja?
