Release: 6.60 TN-A CFE. Custom Firmware (PSP) for the PS Vita by Total_Noob

Total Noob, famous for his TN Hen tool for the PSP a few years ago, is back on the Sony scene with an insane release: a PSP Custom Firmware compatible with the recently leaked Urbanix Exploit!

Total Noob just published a PSP CFW that works on the PS Vita on firmware 1.81 if you own the Urbanix Mini. That Mini can still be purchased on the PSN as I type this, and if you’re lucky enough to have a European account, you can get the mini for free by going to this url.

I haven’t tested this yet, but I can pretty much guarantee this is not a Fake, and the person behind this really is Total_Noob. More explanations will come later about the features of this CFW, but in the meantime hurry up, get yourself a copy of Urbanix, and give this a try.

You will notice that Total_Noob mentions that Coldbird got access to his exploit from a “trusted” person on the scene. That person is me, and I broke the trust TN put in me by doing so. I already apologized to Total_Noob for this, but more explanations and a public apology will come in another post. What I think is important to mention for now is that Coldbird’s CFW (the thing that was leaked) was actually not using TN’s exploit.

    I am having a lot of trouble trying to even get CMA to even work. Everytime I plug in my PS Vita into my computer, it would say “could not connect to the PC” even though it is running on the computer. Can anyone offer any advice please?

      Normal CMA or open CMA? Open up explorer and go to computer and see if your vita is listed and then report back

      I copied the files into the NPEZ00176 folder.
      I make a PSPFiler ZIP file with HomebrewPreparer.
      OK. I’m in the TNMenu i go to the pspfiler and extract
      and the pspfiler deleted.
      Help me please!

    Dont bother reformatting your memory card or deleting your US or JPN PSN account that you may be currently using from your vita sony the fiends and sterner pricks they are
    have already deleted and also block out the usage of urbanix meaning if you have a EUR account and the game saved on your ps3 it will not transfer the game to your ps vita.

    Sony happens to have snitches which are worse than rapist that go to dev fan websites and monitor every single second they get only to find out the next exploit and report to them in exchange for probably sony reward points I say to all devs keep all projects covered until there is a secondary backup of your exploit because you cant
    release exploits like how it was in the past.

    I know you all take pride in your work and the last thing we all need is for these snitches to ruin it for all to enjoy.

    Would this work on on Vita 1.80 with Urbanix or do i have to update to 1.81.

      I have gotten reports that it works fine with Urbanix on 1.80

    Viper i totally agree! Hopefully a developer can make a app that will unblock it so that we can still use fw 1.81 as a real source for tweaking hacking and homebrew running.

    Sony you suck!!!ALL YOU WANT US TO DO IS REBUY ALL THE GAMES WE BOUGHT ON ALL YOUR DEVICES PHUCK THAT!!!
    This is a con project sony has against all owners of a ps3 or a vita with re releasing games most of us already have and slapping HD on the title.

    Each game we own happens to have a serial number why can’t sony give us discounts or a free pass on the games we happen to own?
    They’re excuse would maybe be that it must be downloaded from the PSN store then you can download it as many times you want like whatever!

      Sony does have a plan that takes advantage of stupid people, no doubt. And didn’t I read somewhere that the PS4 won’t even be backwards compatible with PS3 games? How stupid are people? Sony is headed the way of Sega.

      you put something bad onto Vita. backup Urbanix and format Vita. if it’s a homebrew, delete some data from CMA.

    help this is my first playstation handheld (bought it Saturday ) and i caught the game before it was taken down and downloaded this cfe and i cant figure out how to load even the filler. I have read over the install over and over and dont know what i am doing wrong. So if someone was having the same issue and figured it out (or if someone knows easier explanation). I have jailbroken my Iphone and friends Iphones and gone in and changed some files to customize the phone so im not a complete noob when it comes to things of going into filess and added things. Thank you in advance for your help.

      create a folder called “PSP” then inside that folder create on called “GAME”…

      your unzipped filer or homebrew folder in inside “GAME”

      Back out till you get to “PSP” folder and zip this folder but use STORE as compression method and ensure all writing is in CAPS for ALL FOLDERS + .ZIP

      hope this helps

    I install the filer but i think i have done somthing wrong with the iso.
    I put the .ISO (renamed with 5 letters all caps and extention in caps) file in the npez00176 folder then using filer i created a folder ISO ( all caps aswell) in ms0:
    I then copy and moved the .ISO game into the ISO folder.
    Then i returned to the menu with start and select but it just went black so i returned to the vita menu restarted and loaded urbanix again but after loading the save it goes white then black and doesnt go any further. Have i dont something wrong?

      the NPEZ00176-folder has to go in PS Vita/PSAVEDATA/e0498oenh98rh(or whatever your folder’s name is).
      a few pages back someone packed the pspfiler archive and uploaded it. he FILER.ZIP has to go into the NPEZ00176-folder.
      the ISO/CSO has to be named FILENAME.ISO or .CSO and you have to put it inside the NPEZ00176-folder.
      copy the urbanix savegame to your psvita, start urbanix, load the save and filer and the iso should be in the menu.
      that’s how it worked for me.

    Shitttt… Sony has taken the game off of the EU/UK PSN Store.

    As a result, using that free PS Minis promotion, it’ll only give you Jewel Keepers: Easter Island.

    Man, they are really “on the ball” with preventing Vita hacking.. holy..

    Hopefully you’ll be able to find another PS Minis title with the same exploit to use instead.. :)

    I am able to copy the ISO files to the VITA, using the data01 saved game file.
    then i open the exploit and press X, it asks me if i want to move it to ms0:/ISO, it copies it.
    then when i try to start the game, it just goes black…

    tried with 3 ISOs, two just went black, and the last FIFA13, starts to load, asks if I want to save to the memory card and after that goes black…

    Is there a compatability list, or should they all work…
    by the way I tried with both ISO drivers, and it is the same.

    I confirmed with FTP, that the file is in the ISO dir on the VITA…

    dont know what I am doing wrong… help :)

    1. Xc@liburn’s avatar

      Actually I was just able to load my first ISO, but i did nothing different from what I did for the other ISOs.

      So probably not all ISOs work…

    ok, so i have a vita, & when i had a psp, before it was lost by someone borrowing it i had quite a few iso’s & was annoyed that the vita couldnt use them, im not interested in getting bootleged vita games….(yet) but since psp games arent as new i was wondering if someone would know anything i could do as a very novice game hacker (as in ive never done that yet) to modify my vita in some way where i can off the radar change the vita, i was wondering if i can hack it & make it work like a smart phone or at least have psp iso & regular vita games & etc. but i would like a restart point, ig possible since i got the cheaper vita & dont have cash to buy a new one if it fails or freezes is there a way to put at least back to factory settings?
