Happy new year! PSP Game UNO vulnerability revealed by Frostegater, port of CEF To Vita 2.02 incoming.

Uno-exploitAfter a long time of waiting and a weeks-long Ninja release, Frostegater’s exploit is finally revealed to be in the PSP Mini  game UNO. UNO joins the growing collection of PSP games with a buffer overflow vulnerability, and if our experience is to be trusted, Sony will remove it from their stores within 48hrs (although we hope the holiday season might help delaying this…), so hurry up and get it.

For those who just join us, developer Frostegater announced a few weeks ago that he would be porting Total_Noob’s CEF to Vita Firmware 2.02. CEF is a piece of software that allows users to run PSP Homebrews, plugins, and backups within the PSP emulator of the Vita. Since this is not official Sony software, it relies on flaws in some specific games in order to run. This time’s game is UNO.

But well, if you’ve been following this blog, you know what CEF does and why you want it, so if you are interested, hurry up, and get Uno now. Let me emphasize again that if you are interested, you want to buy that game now, not tomorrow, not in 2 hours, but now, as you don’t know when Sony will remove it from their stores.

The Game is available in the US, JP, and EU stores, but not in HK based on the reports I have. For those who are in a store where the game is not available, you can create an account in another country, and order a PSN code online. I will not promote any of them, but feel free to share your recommendations in the comments below.

If you do get the game, do not wait to install it on your Vita. A typical mistake is that people will buy from their PS3, download it to their PS3, and not install it to their Vita immediately. This does not work, as Sony has the possibility to remove the game from your download list, technically preventing you from easily copying it from your PS3 to your Vita.

Frostegater’s files will be released on this site as well as other scene websites in a few days (in general we wait until the game is not available in the Sony stores anymore), and until then, here are a few videos from Frostegater and myself showing the exploit in action.

  14. Qraze’s avatar

    yea, its not gonna be pulled until the files are out is my guess.

    sony would have had to ask permission to pull it and maybe the publisher isn’t allowing it since they’re making a good rush of money.

    with no real exploit, the game is still just a game but once the files are out is when the system is compromised.

    why pull a game with no exploitable files when its making more money than it ever did? cash grab.

    tou’che sony. tou’che.

    Alright so I have a question since I’m new to the vita, I got a used vita and bought Uno on it, and backed it up onto my pc with open CMA. I’m thinking of getting a better conditioned one, if I were to restore factory settings on the first one, would I still be able to transfer Uno to the 2nd one? And would this still work even after sony pulls it from the store? Thanks!

    Reply

    1. synapze’s avatar

      Yes, just as long as you use the same PSN ID on the new Vita and just as long as you continue to use OpenCMA.

    is it possible to buy UNO and Transfer it with openCMA to my PC and then to my replacement vita?

    2. rav’s avatar

      I don’t think you can.
      You’ll need to activate the game for your new Vita. By the time you got the new Vita, I think UNO would aready removed by Sony from the Store.

        1. blahblah’s avatar

          the installed game is tied specificly to ur hardware so u cant transfer it to other vita am afraid.

          Reply

        2. RuPurt’s avatar

          installed games are tied to the psn account and the memory card…not the device. you can make a backup and put it onto the new memory card (if youre getting one) and use everything.

          Reply

      2. rayBridjes’s avatar

        But isn’t that the point of open CMA? To be able to make these transfers without their interferance? If I misunderstood please explain.

        Reply

        1. blahblah’s avatar

          just imagine scenario like this: u cannot use your PS3 HDD from unit A to unit B (nor if you can clone it). sum BS encryption prevents u that. otherwise everyone will get to play ur games for free.

          Reply

          1. rayBridjes’s avatar

            So long as you deactivate and restore factory settings on the older vita. I thought games are tied to your PSN account?

          2. blahblah’s avatar

            erm, u got a good point there. i dun have 2nd PSV to try. so maybe if a new PSV unit signed with ur ID, it may or may not work.

            but i believe it would work, we know how s0ny operate. profit profit & profit.

        2. blahblah’s avatar

          so the point of OCMA would be to be able to BACK UP your one particular PSV & transfer files OFFLINE, without the need of s0nny’s approval.

          i repeat for every1 else in simpler wording:
          YOU CANNOT BACK UP ANY GAMES & USE ON OTHER PSV, other than your own unit.

          Reply

          1. RuPurt’s avatar

            yes you can…and ive done so. making the games unit exclusive would be dumb on sonys part. download content is tied to memory card and psn account.

          2. rayBridjes’s avatar

            Not to be stubborn, just trying to understand how this all works. So you’re saying that if my PSV fell out of my pocket and shattered thus becoming a paperweight, I’m SOL and would have to repurchase all my downloaded games?

          3. wololo’s avatar

            No, you would need to redownload them all, not to purchase them again. The issue would be that you have to update to the latest firmware, losing the exploit. The same goes if you buy a second Vita which doesn’t already have the game installed

          4. blahblah’s avatar

            i take my word back if it work then. pheew. :p

            now i need a new cheap red PSV…

          5. blahblah’s avatar

            oh hell im confused lol

            @ rayBridjes

            thats what i thought at beginning. just like PS3, u need to redownload all games. u cannot use a back up from old PS3 into new one. correct me if im wrong. so same case with PSV & s0ny wouldnt go st00pid let ppl easily copy paste.

          6. rav’s avatar

            Hmmmm interesting…..

            So with the same memory card and account, you can use it on as many Vita as you want? ;D

            And the limit of 2 activation per account only applied if you’re using a different memory card (with the same account)?

            Really confusing…. lol

          7. deejay’s avatar

            Nintendo stuff is tied to a console

            Sony stuff is tied to an account. Long as you have 2.02 on the new system and not higher, you can use OPENCMA to transfer it back. if you’re over 2.02, sorry, have to wait for next exploit

    I guess we’ll just have to wait another day. Wololo said that it’s not gonna be release today. Or rather….it’s a stand-off between Sony and Frostegater, who will draw first? Either way it’s good for psv users who haven’t got this game yet, they have more time to grab it. At the end of it all the save files are just sitting there while Sony making money through this game knowing it won’t be release if Uno still persist on PSN.. Now let see which side is playing dumb.

    I somehow think that the week-end, holiday is an excuse Sony is using to keep this game available. At the end of the day these are facts:

    -PS Vita considered one of the 8 worst product flop of 2012.
    -Sales are either plummeting or stale at very low numbers. (Japan and NA)
    -3rd party devs scared of investing in Vita development, quality titles are nowhere to be seen.
    -Sony is mixed up with some more bad press with other divisions.

    All in all, I think right now more then any time I can remember, Sony could use the hardware sales boost from “hackers” giving extra value to their hardware. My two cents.
