Release: CEF TN for Vita Firmware 2.02 with the UNO Exploit, by Frostegater

Important update: it seems for the EU version, you need your console to be set to English language in order for the exploit to work. I’m sure Frostegater will look into this, but in the meantime, if you use the EU version, please switch your console language to English!

Happy new year again! We eventually got convinced to not wait any longer and release the files for Frostegater’s port of Total_Noob’s CEF for Vita Firmware 2.02.

As a reminder, this tool relies on an exploit in the PSP Game UNO. You must own a legit copy of the UNO game on your PS Vita Firmware 2.02 in order for this exploit to run. CEF will let you play PSP Homebrews and PSP backups on your Vita. It does not allow you to play pirated Vita games, or PS Vita native content. To summarize, CEF does what a CFW or a HEN would do on a PSP.

Installation / How to use

Installation and how to run are explained in the readme, but for the sake of it:

  1. Extract the zip, and copy the folder that matches your version of the game (EU, JP, or US) to your content Manager PSAVEDATA folder. For example: My Documents/CMA/PSAVEDATA/1234567890abcdef/NPEH00020DATA00
  2. It is recommended to install OpenCMA, although until Sony releases a new firmware, the regular CMA client is ok too
  3. Copy the UNO savedata to your PS Vita with the content Manager
  4. run UNO on your PS Vita, and press X (or O) to continue, this should load the exploit

What next?

Now you’ll want some homebrews, and an explanation on how to install them. You can find a good selection of PSP homebrews here, and we explain how to install them on CEF here.

For more, head over to our /talk forums, where I’m sure many of us will be sharing tips, tricks, and pre-packaged homebrews that will run out of the box for this exploit.

Download

Before (or after) you download and run this exploit, please consider making a donation to Frostegater below:




You can also donate to Total_Noob on this link.

If for some crazy  reason you want to donate to me for the awesome job I did coordinating the ninja release, please donate to the Red Cross of your country, this will make me and you feel even better about this hack :)

The files can be downloaded here. If you are seeing an old version of the download page, try this link instead.

Please report success/failure in the comments below or in the forums. I’ve tested the files several times myself, but a mistake is always a possibility.

    can someone please tell me why I can install the PSP games,it’s said that I don’t have enough free space although I still have 27 GB free space!? what the hell

    1. billybob’s avatar

      @ryan this is how i get it to copy. first i copy 1 game to the folder, then i unplug the psp and try moving it over and if the game does not move then i plug it back to the PC and copy a 2nd game to the same folder, leaving both games in the save folder i then copy it to the psv, you should then be able to move both games to the game folder.

    The games “Patapon 3″ and “One Piece Romance Dawn Bouken in Yoake” for example, don’t work. These are some games 5.00 M33-6 or higher that don’t work…

    Anyone know how to make it work?

    To download an English patch, I need to softmod my Vita. Does this firmware work like a softmod? Well, it’s suppose to be a download for a PSP game. Does the vita even need to be softmodded?

    Hello all. Would someone please confirm whether or not the Gravity Crash Portable exploit still works for fw 2.02? I see the game is still in the PSN Store. I thought they would have pulled it if there was an exploit. Thank you for your time.

    1. wololo’s avatar

      No, it won’t work. That exploit was for 1.81

    who wants sony to let us play psp games on a ps vita for free…????
    its easy,but we have to work together(the whole world).
    there is just only 1 step:
    step1;don’t buy and use any sony product. so nobody is buying sony’s product
    than sony want us to buy their product,then we say allow us to play psp
    games on ps vita for free (teach sony their lesson)
    if they won’t do that,fine we still won’t buy their product.
    so GUYS lets go to the XBOX360,WII U.nitendoDS
    than sony will be jellouse and than …. they will allow us.

    i just bought UNO and did all the steps shown above. in CMA, the save datafile is shown as unknown type. ( bcuz usually you can see the game logo )
    and in the UNO game , it says the file can’t be loaded because it is corrupted.
    i juz updated my ps vita awhile ago. is that because of system software 2.12?
