    To have the isos show up in YMenu copy them to /PSP/GAME/XX.ISO & they will show up along side your homebrewz : 3

    I got a question for Total Noob or Wololo.

    Is this exploit patchable by Sony? In other words will they release 1.82 and we wont be able to use this exploit anymore?
    Or is it a huge hole thats unpatchable?
    I’m hoping for the huge unpatchable hole. I’m hoping its a huge flaw in the PSP Emulator that cant be patched. :)

    • wololo says:

      It’s patchable.

      What we seem to have been experiencing recently however is that Sony lost lots of “know how” on the PSP side: The MIPS glue between the PSP and the vita was apparently coded by somebody who did not know well some of the basic security features of the PSP (or didn’t care), and the recent patch for Monster hunter was done in the vita code rather than on the PSP modules. Based on these examples, it looks like they are “afraid” to touch the psp code, as if they lost the knowledge on it. One possibility is that the team that used to work on the PSP has moved on to other projects, and the teams working on the vita have lost that knowledge. As a result, it’s possible they will have a hard time patching the kernel exploit…

      That’s just random speculation of course. I would actually expect them to patch this. The question is, will they patch it good or not…

      • ZorakTorok says:

        I expected an update tuesday. It does seem to be taking them awhile.

      • NakedFaerie says:

        Thanks for the reply. It’s great to see you replying so fast and a good reply at that. I’m still use to the other devs that don’t reply or give pathetic answers.

        $ony are just like Apple. All they care about is money so they probably sacked everyone that worked on the PSP and hired a whole lot of new people for the Vita so your theory is probably correct.

        Sony have never really done anything the smart way. They release a whole firmware update for a tiny patch. I cant remember which firmware version but it was to patch an error with a demo game. Instead of patching the demo they patched the whole firmware.
        Lets hope they do another dodgy job as patching this and make more holes than they patch. :)

        Oh, has the PSP emulator been updated in any Vita firmwares? That might be the flaw that we’ve been waiting for? They might not know how to patch it if its never been updated or not able to be updated.
        Didn’t TN say the PSP Emulator is 6.60 emulated? I’m guessing it’s bringing over all the 6.60 holes and exploits too.

        • wololo says:

          From what I heard the 6.60 exploits are actually patched in the emulator. It seems they are not that lazy :)

        • Gunblade says:

          Well i tought they upgrade the vita instead of the psp emulater to lock down the outher parts of the emulater probly seems like they had to fix vita system in the 1.80 n 1.81 well i notice the psp emulater i think runs da minis psx n psp games well so i guess. well like the psp wen it first came out da1.5 i think could do hombrew right out the box its prety much they same thing hea wea wen da vita first vame out u could install games prety easy then the patch it there jus locking the system down more ooh iam in update 1.81 i downloaded the demo of little big planet n it wont work it says sum werd hinglike ask me to send erro report i gussing 1.81 has sum bugs

  3. Jan says:

    wololo’s website opened 24/7, thank you for this release.

    Awesome

  4. sora_kun says:

    quick question,does anybody have tried playing KHBBSFM with english patched iso?does it work with you?because i got only black screen after i load the iso.. :/

  5. rathalos says:

    dissidia doesn’t work anymore…..
    someone tried it?

  6. inguru says:

    Thank you developers. Tiny Maldives is enjoying the exploit. Really amazing.

  7. rathalos says:

    same games does not work if copied to ms:0/iso just launch it and the game start

  8. Peleep says:

    I definitely get the black screen then error for TN-B on both Urbanix and MBA.

    Have backed up. Formatted memory card. Restored, then copes the Urbanx and MBA TN-B saves via Open CMA. Black Screen then error after opening the saves.

    When i use Urbanix TN-A: it works perfectly.

    I have an EU 1.81 Vita.

    Is there a TN-B error/bug page?

    • Soldier says:

      If its only happening on your end and you haven’t seen any posts about it happening ot others, it might be something you’re doing…

      • Peleep says:

        thanks for your comment. Due diligence was done first… there are a number of people experiencing Black screen errors on this post. search and you will find them. keywords “error” or “black”

        • un3gr0 says:

          @peleep The problem is YOURS, its perfectly working for everyone else in World and its not a bug. So i think you should be more lowly, and start searching in the foruns.

          -Delete all save data.
          -Copy again the save data using openCMA
          -I have urbanix and Mad Blocker All working fine.
          -You dont need to format you psvita memory card

          • Peleep says:

            thank you for your comment. If you cared to search this post and the talk forum, you will find there are an array of folks who have the problem.

            this is what i did, and i shared a solution to those who it is relevant to. You are blessed with not having any issue.

            have a nice day.

          • Darton Staker says:

            By “all savedata” are you referring to any and all Psp savedata no relating to the exploited games?

    • Gunblade says:

      got to watch how u try install things in da save n wat file r in da save

  9. Soldier says:

    I can confirm that Mod Block Alpha works perfectly fine on the American release, but people have to read up how to add ISO files. I think they can only be added through ftp but if I’m wrong correct me. I haven’t gotten it to work through OpenCMA.

  10. Owl says:

    To add ISO files just copy the ISO and paste it inside the Mad Block save folder(or whatever exploit you’re using)as far as i know the ISO has to be named in caps and must be 8 character long not counting the extension, like this:

    ISONAMEA.ISO or ISONAMEB.CSO

    when you try and launch the game you’ll be asked if you want to copy it to the ISO folder which i belive can only be created by using the ftp homebrew (maybe theres some other way, i don’t know) just say no and it’ll ask if you want to launch the game, thats it, have fun gaming.

    • NakedFaerie says:

      You can make directories the same way you install apps.
      Make the directory then zip it and install it.

      EG:
      C:\ISO\ISO_here.txt (Dummy file, just an empty txt file)
      ZIP this so you end up with ISO.ZIP
      move to the savegame folder.
      Goto TN-B
      click ISO.ZIP and it should ask to install.
      It’ll most probably make the ISO dir.

      Would someone try this and tell others if it does work.
      I tried to install homebrew but got the dirs wrong and this is what happened so in theory it should work.

      OR, does TN-B make the ISO dir when you try to copy it over? I’m guessing it does but not sure as I did mine manually.

      This can also be used for other homebrew like plugins for SBSettings etc. :)

      • NakedFaerie says:

        I forgot, when you move the ISO.ZIP to the savegame folder you need to sync it over to the Vita. THEN load the game and install it. :)

    • Soldier says:

      That is weird, that method you mention always ends up freezing the ISO file for me. It doesn’t freeze tho when I use FTP, just takes awhile to add a game.

  11. lol says:

    it is very likely sony has signed up for the ninja release

    • NakedFaerie says:

      There are also assholes that report to Sony.
      I did a google for something and it sent me to a sony forum and some asshole was telling them about the exploit.
      It was only a few weeks ago about the time it was announced but before it was released. So definitely someone thats following here or another site that has first hand information.

      • Soldier says:

        Those people are assholes, they’re usually little kids who act like Eric Cartman and are very selfish. They believe they they are the only ones entitled to the exploit and no one else. They do not thank the hacking community, they just take and take.

      • Gunblade says:

        Think i saw the samme post wen i was googleing about vita cracks

  12. Nate junior says:

    It work on my vita 1.81 , but not all the iso or cso of psp game,for example work coded arms and this game isnt in the italian psn store,but other like 3th birthday and metal gear pace walke not and not work all the save imported from my psp 6.60 prometheus with the is launched with the exploit,the strange thing is that the tn menu show the other game psp i have buy from psn.!!!!for the homebrew,picodrove not work,gba,doom,quake yes with no problem!!!?

  13. Josh says:

    So..I bought MBA yesterday on my PS3 but didn’t transfer it to my Vita. I tried last night to transfer it, but it didn’t work. I’m guessing that it wouldn’t transfer because MBA is no longer considered a “Vita Compatible” title.

    Do you think when they re-add MBA to the store, it will transfer? This seems to be my only hope, unless someone else has an idea.

  14. Owl says:

    Every game i tested so far worked with no problems, im sure gonna miss playing Monster Hunter 3 on the Vita when i update to play newer games.

    :(

  15. Jason says:

    i had Mad Blocker Alpha but i get a Red Flash >< so how ?

  16. wolo says:

    so its impossible to upload any PSN game once you’ve downloaded them by paying on the psn? its it encrypted or something DRM huh

  17. Jdubz says:

    Got everything running smooth. Some psp game just flat out dont work, but only a handful.

    Tactics Ogre works :D

    Valkyria Chronicles II does not :(

  18. sora_kun says:

    can anyone list out games that has been tested whether it is working or not? i have tested:-

    KHBBSFM+eng patch (doesn’t work),
    Naruto Shipudden Ultimate Ninja Impact (doesn’t work),
    DBZ Tenkaichi Tag Team (doesn’t work),
    FFVIICC (working!)

    hope all of you can list games that you’ve tested already..

  19. gyoku says:

    Tekken 6 shows only black screen. I tried everything, but the result is still the same.

    Please help. T_T

  20. drawerfloat says:

    This because TN-B set CPU speed to 333. Tekken 6 can’t load with this speed.

  21. WooTz says:

    God Eater Burst works =D

  22. Diceaurora says:

    Does anyone know if any of the japanese games work like senritsu no stratus or psx games converted to eboots? or would psx games work in a psx emulator for psp

  23. HELPPPP says:

    3d porn on vita?

  24. KF1 says:

    How do you get WAGIC to work on this?

  25. anon says:

    Might as well just use vita FTP! Works great for me….no hassle of copying to folders, content manager, blah…blahh……blaahhh! Just drag and drop nicely done!

  26. Cheese says:

    Can this be uploaded to something besides mediafire? thats blocked in china…

  27. iTzdixon says:

    unfortunately I need help to move the game to ftp the ps vita had an error, I’ve uploaded a few games that create iso folder ms0: and putting the ISO or CSO inside. what happens is that when I finished I wanted to start loading but when entering the mad blocker alpha menu does not start the TN screen goes black and I get an error (C1-2858-3) and I have not made ​​a backup of the ps vita … apparently the only option is to format the memory as I can not delete the games loaded with FTP and even that I reload files and overwrite TN-B with the CMA error still occurs and does not start the menu TN. …
    advice?

    • un3gr0 says:

      Delete the SAVE data only, and copy again. Maybe you copyied the wrong savedata. Dont format, when you restore, it will be the same as it was before backup and formating.

  28. WooTz says:

    Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep works!
    Phantasy Start Portable 2 works!
    Yu Gi Oh Tag Force 6 works!

    Enjoy =D

    whithe knight chronicle orgin work perfect
    i miss this game when i have psp i realy happy now

  30. Crusca says:

    Is it possible to run PS1 isos with this firmware ?It does not work for me …

  31. Soldier says:

    I’m sure if you give it time Crusca, in the future will be able to run more than just emulators, iso, and possibly will get ps1 support but who knows. Lets just give the smart people time to figure the Vita out. I’m sure it’s very complex and not as simple as some may think. Yes, the scene has moved pretty fast. At least, I think it cracked the Vita open pretty fast but everything takes time.

    I don’t condone piracy but if Sony keeps forcing pointless firmware updates that block people from playing new Vita games, than you know that the hacking scene will find a way around it sooner or later. Whether it’s considered legal or illegal is another question. Personally for a device I paid for and own, it feels like Sony has got the consumer by the balls.

    For the people that are having problems with installing ISO / CSO’s using either Mad Block / Urbanix, use the following guide:

    {providing you have vitaftp installed on your PSV)
    1. Download / install Filezilla onto your PC
    2. Turn on your Vita & turn your wireless “ON”
    3. Run MB / Urbanix & select Vitaftp from the menu
    4. wait 10 – 15 seconds for the server to start, you should now see, at the top of your vita screen a server address (something line ftp://192.168.0.7)
    5. Run Filezilla program & navigate to [File] > [Site Manager]
    6. input the ftp server address from 4. into the host input area & click Connect
    7. The left-hand part of this screen is your computer, the right-hand part is your vita, create a folder on the vita (right-hand part) called ISO, do this by right-clicking anywhere in the area & clicking new folder
    8. Open this newly created folder.
    9. navigate to the directory where your ISO is that you wish to install using the left-hand file system of Filezilla (computer)
    10. Drag the ISO you want into the ISO folder created on the right hand side.
    11. Wait for the file to fully transfer over to the vita, then press the [] (square) button on your Vita, select the newly created icon on your menu & install the ISO
    12. Click & Play, HF

    heh everyone.

    I did a couple of things and I’ve found the solution for people experiencing perfectly working TN-A but black screen errors when trying TN-B.

    I have an EU 1.81. Perfectly working Urbanix TN-A. I also have MBA installed but could not get TN-B to work on it, or on Urbanix. I kept on getting the black screen. I renamed my existing ISO folder with ISO’s and CSO’s to something else. and voila, TN-B worked.

    So then i did the following, and now TN-A on Urbanix works perfectly as expected, PLUS TN-B on MBA:

    Via FTP, i renamed the existing TN-A ISO folder containing ISO’s and CSO’s to another name. I created a new folder called ISO. Using PSPlorer, i moved the existing ISO’s and CSO’s across to the new ISO folder.

    Now I am able to access all my previously installed (via TN-A) homebrews, emulators and ISO’s and CSO’s on BOTH TN-A and TN-B.

    Hope this helps!

  35. AR says:

    i have urbanix EU 6.60 TN-A was working fine but 6.60 TN-A is showing me black screen after loading the save data ,help needed

  36. Peleep says:

    Maybe read my comment, which is just before yours.

  37. AR says:

    i think 6.60 TN-B have more bugs then 6.60 TN-A some time i copy the game through ftp ,when the copying is done it does exit to TN-B menu ,and then it always give me black screen even when i restart my psvita and open urbanix again :/

  38. AR says:

    i think 6.60 TN-B have more bugs then 6.60 TN-A

  39. sora_kun says:

    why when im moving the game to iso folder using tn menu with some games like KHBBS, the data always did not fully moved..the data is 1.6gb,but when the moving finished, the data only moved about 500mb only..sorry for my bad english..i need help… :(

  40. Cervantes says:

    Hey Guys i just observed this no need for any violent reaction ok…

    for the errors of unable to load the exploit and it turns to black and get some number code error, i feel you guys coz i experienced that and i think it has something to do with the file transfer client you are using.

    using “My Computer” Method — total error like hell only minis were transfered good but some iso’s/ciso’s were somehow broken

    using firefox ftp plug-in — get’s this NOOP command that how was it?? hmmm i think it interferes with the transfer of data something but whenever i see it after the transfer i get blackscreens and error

    using Filezilla Ftp client — very good… all huge games successfuly transfered (Metalgear peace walk, kingdom hearts, gta chinatown, resistance retri, monster hunter portable 3rd)

    I may be right or wrong… hope i helped

    • Cervantes says:

      1 more thing when transfering files via FTP please have the patience to wait for each files to be transfered 1 by 1… example after transfering 1 file… exit via vita button and scroll out the urbanix page, then launch urbanix again, launch the exploit then run ftp and transfer again… then repeat after every file transfer, i suggest using filezilla…

      • AR says:

        i have formatted my memory card and again copy urbanix from PC TN-A and TN-B works fine unless i start coping large ISO/CSO file from ftp .large size ISO/CSO is 100% transferred to memory card and then black screen occurs even when i restart the urbanix TN screen goes black and I get an error (C1-2858-3)need help !

        • Cervantes says:

          Be Sure that your ISO/CSO is 100% working i suggest downloading ISO’s from a very reliable source, also ung Filezilla when transferring

  41. gunblade says:

    if i get da urbanix from gamestop can i get it from the store now..

  42. KingpinZero says:

    So, whats the current state for those who didnt grabbed the games for the exploit? EU 1.81 here.
    Does the exploit still works with MH3, Urbanix and MBA if i get them, like now, from the store?
    Or i need to wait the next release?
    Thanks :)

  43. Chadderbox says:

    Hello. Couple quick questions here. I recently got a ps vita and was able to get the Mad blocker alpha game on it in time. But the Vita only has a 4gb card. Will this still work if I upgrade to a 32GB card? Where does the actual mad blocker alpha game get stored? Thank you.

  44. Kial says:

    still got a hunk data failed to allocate 27 megs on one of my Games is there any way to fix this?

  45. LolName says:

    I found out about the exploit late, so I wasn’t able to directly download Urbanix or Mad Blocker Alpha from the PSN. But I did come across an Urbanix.cso. It’s on my PC right now. Is it possible to install it onto my Vita? I haven’t updated my Vita in awhile. (It’s at 1.61)
