    Can someone please tell me what to do ?
    I installed FTP and transferred some ISO to MS0:/ . I dont know if I get a corrupted ISO or what, but now I cannot load the CFW – That means I cannot start the FTP to delete the corrupted ISO.
    Any suggestion how to fix this?

  2. Rob says:

    It gets stuck at 0% when moving an iso.

    • suicidal_banana says:

      Prolly some simple full memory problem, try turning off and on your PSV, if that didnt help you can go about ‘cleaning’ up the PSV untill your done installing your fav PSP isos.
      1] Backup your Vita games & minis with (Open)CMA
      2] Delete your Vita games & minis (on the Vita)
      3] Restart the device (just 2 b sure)
      4] Run the CFW, install all your games
      5] Stop CFW, restart PSV (once again just 2 b sure)
      6] Put back your Vita games & minis with (Open)CMA (they will keep their savegames etc)

    Thanks everyone involved!!!! once again you guys are magical!

  4. joki says:

    The ISO.iso issued could be fix by renaming the file from inside WINRAR. Please add this to the how to.

    This is the problem for most of these people not being able to see their iso/cso.

  5. stardome says:

    Uno is still up on the us store

  6. GodLikeC says:

  7. GAR says:

    I CAN NOT RUN THE HOMEBREW, BUT WHEN THE ENDS decompresses disappears and I CAN NOT PLAY WITH THEM. What will be the ERROR?

    • suicidal_banana says:

      Did you try simply restarting the device & cfw?
      of the 6 games i installed, 3 of them didnt go back to the overview after installing, but did install fine.

  10. swordchi says:

    need help……im very new to this and i have no clue, my psp iso doesn’t work on my vita. I did the correct name and drag& drop it in the exploited folder, then copied it to my vita. but no game comes out at all…..i did the homebrew steps and it worked perfectly….but iso/cso doesn’t work…….someone help

  11. J says:

    Guys this is my first time messin’ with the VITA and I can’t make it work:

    I can’t seem to run anything as in I tried the UNO but it’s letting me play UNO. It’s not kicking into another sort of program.

    Here’s what I did.

    1. Installed Open CMA
    2. Updated VITA to 2.02
    3. VITA Airplane mode
    4. Copied the “Save Data” (NPUH10027DATA00) into (PC) Documents > PS Vita > PSAVEDATA > 7ec66XXXXXXXXXXX

    5. Ran UNO

    6. tried pressing X or O

    7. It’s not doing anything and I’m still in UNO.


    I’d appreciate a helping hand >.<

    • wololo says:

      Did you actually copy the savedata from your pc to your vita? It is not mentioned in the steps you describe…

      • J says:

        Oh yes I did. I’m sorry for not being able to write that down.

        Right now, it managed to run. (The UNO game kicked me into a different UI..)

        But I am not sure how to run ISOs with it.

        Any suggestions please? I’m very dumb with these things.

        Is there also a way to copy my saved data of games (from a PSP 3000) to this VITA/2.02 exploit?

  12. furon says:

    I cannot run pspfiler
    Is this ecfw run it?

  13. ColonelPanic says:

    Getting an error after copying files over a few times: ‘Could not copy some content items. (C0-14265-8).

    Any ideas?

    • suicidal_banana says:

      Memory, once again, try restarting to clear out some mem, if that doesnt help backup & delete all your vita games & minis, install your isos, put the vita games & minis backup back on the vita, profit.

  14. zels says:

    dose all psp homebrew work on this?

  15. icyheart says:

    I will get visa card to donate think u

    • suicidal_banana says:

      If you wanna donate but dont have a creditcard, (and paypal doesnt offer you to use a bank account like it does for me in the netherlands) you can check out visa’s 3v service (, and prolly lots more) for a ‘voucher’ that will work as creditcard but can be bought in a number of ways.

  16. Botarguirix says:

    in my case , i need to set my console in english (USA) to use the CEF TN… if i set my vita in Spanish doesn’t work… i’m playing MH3rd! muahaha! 😀 THX everybody!

  17. Jaime Torres says:

  18. Kurosaki says:

  23. lagunareturns says:

    It is great but it doesn’t work with Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops, I finished the first story mission and it gives an error message and quits… Maybe it needs a bugfix rerelease of the CEF TN

  24. DamimavPL says:

  25. goalkkeper99 says:

  27. fingloi_x3 says:

  28. carsauce says:

    It’s still on the store the PSP UNO game, should I just upgrade? cause really I;m on 1.81 GC exploit but since the files are released, I’m just now thinking to go with this prodecedure.

  29. carsauce says:

  32. samjordanhunter says:

    all asian stores have UNO…can CEF be ported to these PSN??

  33. Arcanjohack says:

    Works for me, thank Wololo and Frostegater.
    Emulators running except CPS2, which presents some flaws in this video and tricky to find roms functional, otherwise everything perfect.

  34. William A.U. says:

    So far, so good!

    The UNO game, which I luckily already bought before the ninja release announced that this game would be the next game, has worked wonderfully with the UNO save game exploit, and I’m able to get to the TN menu with my games. Who would have thought UNO was the next game haha.. But now I won’t be able to play UNO lol. Oh well. Anyway, I REALLY love the fact that the loading time to get to the TN menu is a heck of a lot faster than Gravity Crash. It took about I think estimated 24-26 seconds to get to the UNO start menu, and then another like 7 seconds to get to the TN menu compared to Gravity Crash would took like 46 seconds or something and then you had to go to editor, hit exploit, then save map and wait more etc.. So yeah, I wanna give a big big thanks to those awesome hacker devs here and out there(Frostgater, wololo, TN, etc) Excellent work on the new save game exploit once again!! Without ya guys, I wouldn’t be able to play my beloved PSP games on my PSVita! Happy I don’t have to pay for them again. And I love the homebrews and being able to play some of classics. A+ grade for ya guys.

    Oh, and I love the new PSVita web browser speed and Mail that came along with the new firmware 2.02, and the new Youtube app upgrade. So awesome. Now I can zoom through websites in no time without waiting for the screen to load different portions of the page. Also, Youtube, man.. Love the new options.. the more the merrier. Sony did good work.

    But i have a problem, did someone could run MotorStorm: Artic Edge? I download several isos csos and allway get a black screen.

    Thanks again.

  37. suicidal_banana says:

    Just checked the (EU Netherlands) store, and UNO is no longer available!!!

    Im guessing its being pulled from the other stores at this very moment aswell.

  38. black cat says:

    Thank you so much finally u did it, i downloaded n copied to my vita n it’s working line charm ……….. :)

  39. Uriel says:

    is it okay if i back my games and the exploit via open CMA and transfer to a larger memory card .. bec i am planning to but 32GB or do i need to purchase UNO again ?? sorry for the question, i,m new to this stuff ..

    • suicidal_banana says:

      Yes it is, has been awnserd on this same page of comments already 😉

      And i doubt you can purchase it again, as its NO LONGER IN THE (EU) STORE

  40. Tony86 says:

    nooo i just got myself a psn credit voucher to buy Uno and its no longer there =[ is there any other way to get it??

  41. DoombringerLucifer says:

    What i have to do if i want to delete the copied games into the savedata of Uno?

  42. swordchi says:

    ISO still won’t show up in the tn menu, i changed it to the ymenu and it still doesn’t show up…how come my iso/cso won’t show up? i did the correct naming step and dropped in the exploited files and still no iso in the ymenu…and also FTP doesn’t work too.

    • Kurosaki says:

      Put the name of the game. iso capitalized, for example: BLEACH.ISO (when they have to be 8 letters)….and the FTP is a solution in some comments that have done well, look it has to be

  43. ? says:

    Hey everyone I posted a video on how to create a INSTALL.ZIP file check it out!

  44. IkneedHElpp says:

    Does this exploit work with uno trial version….?
    If not, is it even possible to make that happen?
    If you can, than you guys should :) THNX

  45. IkneedHElpp says:

    Is there anyway to download this game for free?

  46. AlexFot says:

    Can someone explain to me whether or not CEF and VHBL are the same thing cause most psp homerew I see on wololo download say packaged for VHBL

  47. Not stressiN says:

    Just wondering if I’m supposed to be waiting on a new version of VHBL for UNO? Tried one of the old ones, didn’t work so well..

  48. fdsgsdg says:

    where u get game that works on ps vita CFW my Hatsune Miku Project Diva Extend.Cso not works any one know?

  49. carsauce says:

    I now wonder if SONY will once again put out another firmware and have force the Vita to upgrade again, and then rinse and repeat? but for now meh 2.02 my Vita is once again fully alive with online support.

  50. Deadly_f0es says:

    do you know if you can still watch videos on youtube after you put the exploit? Because i love watching videos on youtube on bed and I use the PSV because of the HQ OLED screen

  51. ryan says:

    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 heck

    • billybob says:

      @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.

  52. ryan says:

    I mean “can not install the PSP games”

  53. ryan says:

    can someone please tell me why I can’t 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 heck

  54. Crizizcor says:

  57. dejera says:

    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?

  58. peko says:

    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?

  59. jdubz says:

    Sorry for the noobness, but has anybody been able to successfully play n64 or snes games on this exploit? They use to play fine on 1.81 using mad blocker. The emulators install fine, it find the games fine, but i can’t get them to load. Anyone?

    • Razor says:

      I want to know also If the N64 and the Snes emulators work fine on the new vita exploid. They work fine on Moster Hunter unite. 180

    (sorry if i cant post videos.) and it shows a download link PSX Add-on for eCFW TN-C so ima give this a try… does someone know if this actually will allow us to play ps1 games?

  65. Christian Young says:

    On this exploit does the ad hoc feature work on iso back ups? I own the tekken 6 umd and i want to play multiplayer on my vita.

  66. Roninkai says:

    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.

  67. Roninkai says:

    Ok then, thank you for your swift reply, sir. Maybe I will be privvy to the next exploit.

  68. jake says:

    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.

  69. terryass says:


    im still on uno exploit 2.02 and psp games works great.
    thanks to all you guys how make this happends :-)
    i want to ask ya if ist possible to Play snes or Genesis games with this uno exploit. downloaded the Emulators but dont no how to install them . pleas help

  70. t.zaw says:

    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?

  71. degtr says:

    can i reinstalling system software 2.02?? i can’t also put uno on my ps vita because don’t find it…what i have to do???

  72. mlc says:

    yes, but only with a proxy like Charles and while the game is available on the store. So once the game is updated you’ll have to wait until PSN requires 2.03+, and the game is returned to the store, before you can transfer it.

  73. Quake says:

    Yes, I bought the Mad Blocker on the PS3 and transferred it that way. The only problem with that though is that if the game is taken off the PSN Store you won’t be able to transfer it to the PS Vita. I ran into that problem and had to wait for the Game to return to the store so I could transfer it. If you decide to go that route, Don’t update that Ps Vita. Once it’s back on the store you can transfer it by doing the Firmware version trick to by pass the update notice. See: a few pages back on – did-you-miss-the-ninja-release-then-hurry-up-and-get-ecfw for details.

  74. marjowikid says:

    Any suggestions on what I can do?

  75. marjowikid says:

    Alright read what you told me to and I got the jist of it thing is I’m om 2.00 will that be a problem

  76. Lai says:

    agree stiffeno.. to poster above.. you need to buy it on stores or in psn store. there is no such thing as ps vita iso pirated for this… sorry

  77. suicidal_banana says:

    Just wondering (since i downloaded pretty much all my PSP games already) is it possible to make a ISO from a UMD? because i couldn’t find Vice City Stories which i do have for the PSP, can i use my PSP (loaded with CFW 660-C) to make an iso for my Vita??

    Thanks in advance, been wondering this for a while.

  78. BrokyPR says:

    yes just turn on psp on cfw press select a menu will pop up go were it saids usb device it is set to memory stick by deaful just swich it to umd disc then connect ur psp to the computer and it will show the umd game in an iso file drag it to the pc…u know the rest
