    you know it’s sad that I figured out most of the stuff here and have got PSPFiler 6.6 homebrew to work…PSP ISO backups are working…but when I used filer6.6 and accidentally deleted a folder I thought was a duplicate because my filer homebrew keeps showing up twice, one is the application that runs and the other is the installer it messed up my FTP VITA homebrew and dissapeared. No big deal right? just reload it up on the vita like you had 20 min prior? wrong, no homebrew works on my vita now despite the fact I have PSP Filer and PSP iso’s working flawlessly. Any thoughts? I’m really at a loss.

    Can someone please make a brief youtube tutorial on how to copy homebrews….i tried like 15 times literally and still fail im trying to copy FTPSERVER. thnks

    • CronoFear says:

      Don’t use FTP, It is really slow.

      -Create a PSP/GAME Folders.
      -Download a Homebrew and put it in PSP/GAME/
      *For example, if the homebrew is VFTP, the result should be
      *PSP/GAME/VFTP/EBOOT.BIN(take note EBOOT.BIN is always inside in homebrew folder).
      -Then right-click on PSP folder and compress with Winrar. *Name the file as XXXXXXXX.ZIP (less than 8 letter and CAPITAL), compression *method=none and accept.
      -Move the XXXXXX.ZIP to GameXploitSavedata folder (the one that you use for installing TN-V).
      -Go to your PSVITA and copy the new savefile, accept the overwrite.
      -Now go to TN-V4(pspemu)>>games, you should see the homebrew in the list, press triangle and install.
      -After the instalation, accept the erase petition.
      -Go to pictures or video (for refreshing) and then return to game, now you should see the homebrew.

      FOR ISO:
      -Name your ISO as XXXXXXXX.ISO (less than 8 letter and CAPITAL).
      -Move your ISO to GameXploitSavedata folder (the one that you use for installing TN-V).
      -Go to your PSVITA and copy the new savefile, accept the overwrite.
      -Now go to TN-V4(pspemu)>>games, you should see the GAME in the list, press triangle and install (installing is optional).
      -After the instalation, accept the erase petition.
      -Go to pictures or video (for refreshing) and then return to game, now you should see the GAME.

      Srry for my english.

  8. Norml says:

    Works like a charm, thanks sooooooo much!

  9. vcb04 says:

    I had a way easier time using windows ftp explorer (I know not everyone has windows, but still it might help those that do) Every ftp browser plugin I tried just kept asking me to save it to my computer whenever I’d drop an ISO into the folder. What was I doing wrong?

  10. wololosupporter says:

    Thanks WOLOLO works great off of the mad blocker exploit

  11. Symon says:

    IF anyone is having trouble with the VITAFTP instructions, here is a simpler version:

    1. Install the VitaFTP homebrew app (Copy the file inside install.rar into PSP/GAME/”8 Letter Name”
    2. Run the Homebrew from the Menu after running Urbanix / MB:ROTF
    3. Ensure your wireless is enabled on your Vita & run Filezilla from your Windows machine
    4. connect the the ftp server by typing in the ftp server address given on your vita screen into the “host” section of the “Site Manager”
    5. Create a folder called ISO onto the root directory of the PSV
    6. Drag your ISO’s / CSO’s into this newly created ISO folder
    7. hit Square on your vita once the tranfer is complete
    8. click on the ISO from the homebrew menu

  14. Karma_Darkly says:

    I have no idea how to create a folder in the root directory. can someone help me out.

  15. Faceless_Sinner says:

    My ISO’s run out of the exploited save from the exploit. For some reason they don’t show up when I move them to my ISO folder in the root. Unique problem I guess but it still works like a charm…

  16. gunblade says:

  19. MUD says:

    How do I make a .iso to a .ISO?
    From this MORTKOMB.iso to this MORTKOMB.ISO

    Thanks in advance.

    Well after buying a few vHBL programs and then never bothering to even install it, finally there is good reason. I am on 1.8 and setup the -B version of the MHFU hack last night and it works wonderfully. I wish there was a simpler way to get into the CFW but hey it works and for me it has worked well. Seeing that the setup of HomeBrew is kind of wanky thing I wish someone would make a pre-pack with all the good stuff like FTP, PSPFiler, and Wagic and other favorite homebrews all packaged up and in the proper directory. That way when you did the oCMA transfer everything you need would be ready to go…..anyone done this?

  21. DAMARR B says:

    Whats going on everyone i have monster hunter us version 1.80 i followed the instructions 2 to a tee (apparently not)
    and after i got the homebrew store change the zip 2 capitals and all only monster hunter comes up on the tn-b menu. Can someone please give me a pointer i want 2 play some Sonic! thank you

    • MUD says:

      Load TN-B then press up on the + pad and find the game in the SaveGame folder and install it.
      Also I recommend getting FireFTP it makes everything way easier. ;)

      Now how do I change a .iso file in to a .ISO file?

  22. RICHIE says:

    I dont have the Urbanix Exploit, how do i get it what if i cant get it from the psn store, will this hack still work,
    Please Help…. Thanks in Advance for your Fantastic work
    and help..

    • MUD says:

      Wait for the next game with a exploit, join the Wololo chat and get in on the Ninja Release to insure getting the game before Sony pulls it from the online store.

      lol, I need help changing .iso to .ISO any one?

  23. Joey Gernaat says:

  26. el o el says:

    So, can anyone confirm that Valkyria Chronicles II is working?

    I renamed it to VALKCRON.ISO (which showed in properties: VALKCRON.ISO.iso) and transferred it over, and it showed up perfectly in my games list.

    However, the game crashed upon launching.
    Am I doing something wrong? Ace Combat X worked perfectly.

  27. Jake Granado says:

    My iso’s work but if i put any on it stop my PSN downloads from working…fix?

  28. RICHIE says:

    This Hack is of no use because it depends on psn psp games
    which are not possible to buy or download for everyone,as
    there are removed from the store as soon as there read this hack, Please make a hack that dosent need PSN GAMES,


  29. MajorSnipes says:

    It works if you copy the iso/cso to the exploited save data folder and providing that you have already created the ISO folder to ms0 (root) then when you starts TN’s menu the .iso/.cso file should show> press x on same and you will be prompted to copy it to the ISO folder… It seem faster than ftp

  30. Leona says:
