Release: Total_Noob’s CEF TN-B for Gravity Crash (port by Teck4 and Frostegater)

Despite conspiracy theorists who would love to see us not deliver, here’s, as promised, Teck4′s port of Total_Noob’s eCFW to a new game exploit for the game Gravity Crash Portable.

As “expected”, the game Gravity Crash Portable was removed from all Sony PSN locales yesterday, following our announce 3 days ago of a vulnerability being discovered in that game, that would allow a malicious attacker to run Super Mario Bros on your Vita.

Hopefully, people who missed the Monster Hunter AND Urbanix AND Mad blocker alpha exploits had enough luck this time to catch this 4th game in time before it got pulled.

Teck4 ported TN’s CEF to the Gravity Crash game in JP, while Frostegater adapted this work to the EU and US versions. Total_Noob’s CEF is a tool running within the PSP Emulator of the Vita, which will allow you, among other things, to run most PSP homebrews (see a good selection of great homebrews and emulators here) and PSP plugins. Tools such as the Vita FTP will also simplify your file transfers, compared to the tedious official Content Manager Assistant.

Thanks to TheZ for a video of the tool in action:

How to instal and use

Installation and usage are explained in the readme (thanks Frostegater!), but here they are again:

  1. Copy both savedata folders to PSVita by CMA(Open CMA is preferred)
  2. Run game->Editor->Press START->Load level->Choose “exploit”->
  3. Save level
  4. Enjoy ;)

Download

Download on this page. Be sure to download the files for Gravity Crash, not the ones for Urbanix or Mad blocker Alpha

    1. Ronald’s avatar

      For ftp is simple you put the INSTALL.ZIP in your exploit save data the one ending in DATA01

      Reply

      1. Ronald’s avatar

        then run it on ps vita and then type in the ip address it gives you either in a web browser or windows explorer(recomended) and add the folder ISO and put isos in that Ftp has long upload time but its alot easier then doing it through CMA

      It is very unlikely to brick your Vita using TN’s CEF. I actually have yet to see such a report. turn your vita completely off (press the power button for 15s) and let it charge for 24h, then try to turn it back on again. If that doesn’t help, you can go into recovery mode and reset the console. But hopefully you have a backup of Gravity Crash on your disk, if you do that.

    Ok guys heres a quick guide to using this exploit cause im noticing alot of problems people are having that I have had.

    First one:Corrupted file error

    For this problem you need to take the 2 folders you get in the save specific to your region and put them in your DOCUMENTS/PSVITA/PSSAVE/RANDOMNUMbERS. This should fix the problem it did for me.

    Second:Adding homebrew.

    For this part I will use VITA ftp as an example your gonna wanna download VITA Ftp(just look around in the download section of wololo site or the threads) and put the zip in NPEG00020DATA01 then re copy the save to your vita and then run the exploit and install it.Then your done its that simple.

    Third:Adding ISO/CSOs

    Now most people want to add they’re backups to there freshly hacked ps vita’s now its pretty easy. All you have to do is get on VITA Ftp and type in the IP adrress it gives you into your windows explorer then your gonna need to create a folder called ISO. Then take what ever cso/iso and give a 8 character name no less no more and put in folder and wait for it to upload to your vita(FTP is slow 1gb games take 45mins) access game from the exploit and play that easy and you can back up your game save data with CMA still.(Don’t ask me where to get ISO/CSOs cause this was decide for game backups)

    I hope people looking for info on how to use this exploit find this helpful I will be watching this comment for a couple days so feel free to reply with questions or help.

        Did you put the file you downloaded in NPEG00020DATA01.If that didn’t work then I would reccomend opening the zip taking out the EBOOT file making a folder called PSP then within that folder make a folder called GAME and within that folder a folder called FTP and put EBOOT FILE in that then if you have winrar right click folder and click add to archive on the drop down menu then set archive format to ZIP and compression method to store and try putting it in NPEG00020DATA01.

        Hope this helps.

    For anyone having problems with their psp isos. Whether it be no icon showing in the tn menu, tn menu freezing when clicking the game, loading a black screen that never loads, or getting the error code after a few seconds, i seem to have found a way that works 100% of the time for me. Take the iso make sure you name the file in all caps including .ZIP and EXACTLY 8 characters so an example would be PSPGAMEX.ZIP. Put the iso directly into your exploit folder. Now use cma to copy the exploit folder from your pc to your vita. Now go into gravity crash game, choose editor, load, save. Now in the tn menu, you should see the game. Highlight the game and press x. Itll ask you if you want to move it to the m/ folder. Choose no. Then itll ask you if you want to run the game instead. Choose yes. The game should boot up and run fine. Idk why the tutorials say put it in the iso folder and use ftp or pspfiler to do so but it never transfers the files correctly. Let me know how this works for some.

    1. Addison’s avatar

      Edit: the part where it asks you to move the game, it says mso/ drive not m/ drive like i said previously.

      Also, i am using the sony drive. Not the march drive. To change them just press start while in the tn menu and press left or right to toggle in between and start again to confirm

    Reply

    1. bosanovaX’s avatar

      You need no make sure you have the cache file already in the cache folder in the root of you cps2 folder. To do this you need to make the file using the file (i think its romcv, something like that)it comes with the emu. click it choose your game then it will make the cache.

      Hope that helps

    Once again I am thankful this has happened that another exploit made this possible, and to play psp games and emulators on here is a Godsend, , this is what you get SONY, when you don’t care for your gamers who want more, and this is only the beginning!, Vita hacks forever!

      They will put it back once the firmware patches it, so then it will be useless to you if your goal is to use it as a vector for the exploit
