Release: TN-C eCFW for Vita!

Developer Total_Noob has released TN-C eCFW with a huge list of improvements including compatibility for the Motorstorm and Super Collapse exploits. TN-C has also now become open source. Keep reading!

The long awaited and highly anticipated update to TNmenu by developer Total_Noob for all exploits is finally here, bringing a substantial update to just about everything. With TN-C Total_Noob has added compatibility for those still holding out on the Motorstorm and Super Collapse 3 exploits; something he was testing a while back. TN has also made this release open source which means other developers will be able to build and add new features to TN-C. With this release Total_Noob also released a statement that this will be most likely his last release. It’s very sad news; we can only say thanks and best wishes in your future endeavors.

“As promised, here is the new open sourced TN-C. This is probably my last release, because my priority is still familiy, friends and school ;) If you continue my project, please keep it open source and call it ‘TN’ :P Best wishes.

~Andy, aka Total_Noob”

The release is packed with tons of bug fixes, fixes for compatibility issues and has an entirely new look. TN listened to users and fixed everything, making it the best TN release thus far. You can find a list of the full release and new features below including a tutorial on installing ISO/CSO and homebrew by TN. The download links can be found at the bottom with a preview of it. Enjoy! :D

- Changelog CEF 6.60 TN-C
* Added 1.61-1.67 firmwares support (supports Motorstorm and Super Collapse 3 exploits).
* Added ability to alter user name and button assign (enter button).
* Added possiblity to change buttons to exit and its hold duration.
* Added possiblity to change CPU speed (the PSP Emu’s CPU is increased by 60%. Even 20/10 CPU on PSVita is faster than 333/166 CPU on PSP ;))
* Added custom folder hider(fixes dj max portable 3 crash).
* Fixed issue with backups which within load an ELF file (fixes crash in Talkman and probably in more games).
* Improved module device check patch (fixes Tekken 6 and Soul Calibur).
- Changelog TN Menu
* Updated the whole user interface (by Darkenvy).
* Added memory space check.
* Added PIC1 display.
* Fixed bug that doesn’t allow you to go to PSVita menu when you load TN Menu within TN Menu.
* Fixed crash when you move a backup file and the ISO folder does not exist.
* Made everything smoother.
* Improved ZIP reading (increases menu boot with packages).

* [] to open the configuration menu.
* /\ to delete a file.
* X to install a homebrew, move backups, or to load a homebrew/game.
* Arrows to move.

Prepare homebrews:
* Create an ZIP archive of the homebrew, saved as: ‘FILENAME.ZIP/PSP/GAME/*THE_HOMEBREWS_NAME*/EBOOT.PBP’.
* “FILENAME.ZIP” can be saved somehow, it just MUST BE UPPER CASE LETTER and the filename can ONLY BE 8 CHARACTERS LONG.
* Save the archive in the savedata folder.

Install ISO/CSO:
* Copy backup file to the savedata folder, UPPER CASE LETTER, 8 CHARACTERS LONG (e.g. BACKUP.ISO).
* Start TN Menu and press X on the game to move it to ‘ms0:/ISO/’ (you’ll reach ~2000 KB/s).

This is a ZIP file which contains images for TN Menu.

Source Code
CEF TN got open sourced by GPLv3. I am tired of programming and give you guys the job continue it. Please respect the license, make it open source.
It also contains ‘popcorn’ which is a beta module for psx support. Perhaps a master can finish it with sounds.

* Thanks to Dark_AleX for his impressive work.
* Thanks to Darkenvy for his TN Menu graphics.
* Thanks to Takka for his ISO/CSO reader.
* Thanks to xerpi who found Urbanix Exploit EU.
* Thanks to Frostegater for MBA Exploit.
* Thanks to teck4 for Gravity Crash Exploit.
* Thanks everyone who collected bugs.

    What game is working fine with this?,motorstorm or super collapse 3?.


    1. cscash241’s avatar

      They are both supposed to work but in my experience SC3 DOSE NOT work corretly.


  2. Hellinferno’s avatar

    Let me see if i understand this,i have to buy any of those games,then save one of them to see a save data on CMA folder,after that download the files and i have to put that sae data into the game save data folder and then transfer to my ps vita? call me stupid i dont understand.Before this i was able to create a homebrew and see the save data on my vita but now is not working at all.


    1. Jd8531’s avatar

      Those games are for people who have had them and are on the required firmware to run those certain exploits.

    what is the Default CPU speed?

    and is it a good thing to higher it?


    1. warfaren’s avatar

      First off all you need to understand that what you are controlling is the CPU speed of the emulated PSP that is running inside of your Vita.

      The old PSP originally came with a 333MHz CPU underclocked to 266MHz (to get longer battery times).
      Hackers “overclocked” it back to 333MHz a long time ago, back in the days of the old PSP scene, then later Sony did so aswell for some newer games in order to give the developers some more power for their games (better graphics etc.).

      So the default value should be 266MHz

      There is no risk involved in playing with this value, and you may need to do it in order to get some games to run well. The actual clock of your Vita’s physical CPU should stay the same no matter what you set it to.

  8. trey’s avatar

    I’m running the monster hunter tn-c exploit and it always gives me the white screen upon starting the exploit. Then it gives me the “An error has occurred” message. I had no problem with the previous TN versions following the same exact methods. Please help.


    1. trey’s avatar

      Sorry, I forgot to mention that I am on 1.80 and simply copying the Monster Hunter and Urbanix files to “\PS Vita\PSAVEDATA\XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\”.


      1. Plombata’s avatar

        Same problem with me! I’m running the Urbanix TN-c exploit and get the same error when i load the exploit. Tried to replace the savegame data with a fresh copy and it worked. But when i try to load Tekken 6 it gives me an error and black screen! I used to play Tekken 6 before with the same exploit and I can’t understand where this problem came up from? Trey, budy i suggest you try to replace the savegame data with a fresh copy and try it with or without the TNmenu.


  9. alpmaster007’s avatar

    Anybody notice e loader and ps1p on screen shot :)


  10. Lucas’s avatar

    Hello wololo!

    First of all, thank you for this amazing post. Can you help me with a doubt?

    I have navigate to System > System Information and I noticed that my System Software is at 1.66. What should I do to use this release for Vita? I must buy one of those games listed above and then?

    Thank you!


    1. wololo’s avatar

      If you don’t already have one of these games you are screwed. You would need to update to 2.00 first in order to access the store, but 2.0 patches the exploits. Stay tuned for the next exploit


  11. redcero’s avatar

  22. RayChulNiel’s avatar

    I’m totally new to hacking the PS Vita.
    So, if I download this will I be able to download ISO files like Persona or Final Fantasy and play it on the PS Vita?
    (Also, is there a video tutorial on how to download this?)
