    @trevor try it the way i did because onster hunter is not that hard to do

  2. kaname says:

    Thank you, everything works fine and my sister is starting to play pokemon. Thanks to all of you

  3. Trevor says:

    Wait but I’ve never had the monster hunter files, I missed out on that, or do I not need them?

  4. BrokyPR says:

    I had the same problem with the error(C1-2858-3) what I did was delete the save data from uno game from the vita and the computer,play uno again creat new save data and then do all steps again and it works for me hope this help

    ps happy new years everybody!!

    • BrokyPR says:

      error(C1-2858-3) its about memory space

    • makak1984 says:

      @BrokyPR this is not problem with memory space! it is problem with your files for example if you make proper zip with your homebrew and also iso, probably CSO too. Look… If you make for example zip called HOMEBREW by WinRAR it will have this “name” – you should rename it to HOMEBREW.ZIP on my Windows 7 i simply click on file in this case and hit F2 then simply delete words zip to “.” and type ZIP and hit ENTER. You should do same on ISO files – also change the letters to “.ISO”. Proper structure of HOMEBREW.ZIP must be same as on Wololo’s tutorial.
      Happy new year bro!

  5. Anthony says:

    can someone tell me how to install emulators like gba or n64

    • makak1984 says:

      It is simple, just create ZIP file with proper folder structure of folders like on Wololo’s tutorial – remember you also must include your roms on this ZIP file of emulator. Then the roms will be detected by emulator.

  6. Lai says:

    THANKS WOLOLO, FROSTEGATER, TOTAL_NOOB and everyone who is behind this! :) works perfectly in mine.. πŸ˜€ just follow what they said on this article, works like a charm! :) happy new year to everyone! :)

  7. Trevor says:

    Ok this what I’m doing.. PSP/GAME/(my Game Boy Advance Roms ex. RUBY.GBA) and a folder that named GPSP)/EBOOT.PBP can someone tell me what Im doing wrong please.. sorry to be a pain!

  8. sharam says:

    Hi guys i have a problem when i try to add an iso into the vita it doesnt appear in the exploit

  9. Draygon says:

    Could someone tell me how to install FTP for Vita?

    • Draygon says:

      I tried to put the folder of FTP for Vita in the uno save file, but it didn’t work. also zipping the file was useless.

      So, how do we install FTP for Vita on the Vita? :(

    • doomzlord says:

      Dude, copy the Eboot.php from the zip to your desktop. Make a folder ‘PSP’ then make a sub folder ‘GAME’ then make a folder ‘FTP’ inside this folde place the eboot.php. now ARCHIVE this to a zip and copy to your savefile. now in ecfw upzip it and your good to go
      read the posts properly its clearly given

  10. Kiddo says:

    I think games that have been patched can’t run with this exploit. Just use a clean dump if it’s available.

  11. ahbba says:

    Where do you get the eboot.pbp file? do you just make one and how?

    • ahbba says:

      Ya i put it all in caps and nothing happens. when i extract it on the ps vita it doesn’t do the 1000kB/s like everyone else’s

  12. Zohan says:

    what is the EBOOT.PBP and where is it please help

  13. Jon Sumissu says:

    I got my games on, however how can I expand the space on ms0:/ISO/? It only holds 2 CSOs.

  14. Zohan says:

    what is the wagic and eboot where is it

  15. willis says:

    when ever i put a cso file in to the folder it dosent copy onto my ps vita and i have upper case letters and less then 8 letters

    WHAT DO I DO ?

  16. ahbba says:

    How do i change the iso games from .iso to .ISO?

  17. Wulf says:

    Um, i got a problem…
    I coppied everything fine but i still dont see the ISOs or the homebrews…added BookR and GPSP Kai
    I see GPSP Kai but not BookR or the isos….
    And Yes i did follow all the intructions…

    • Wulf says:

      Another thing, Will patched games work?
      Cus im using Monster Hunter Freedom 3 English Patched… ( Just asking…not sure if its against the rules to ask but if it is remove this comment and inbox me a warning plz πŸ˜€ Not 100% sure o.o )

      Soo…yea… I tried using a clean savedata exploit and so on…still not working!
      And i cant use FTP Cus that isnt working either ( as in i dont know how to set it up….at all lol )

      – Note – Im such a newb πŸ˜€

      • Wulf says:

        Ok, think i know why…it appears in my documents blah blah blah as “Full Caps Name”.iso not .ISO ( full caps )
        But i cant change this…if i simply add .ISO to name it will appear as “MHF3.ISO.iso” in the details…How can i fix this?
        Just realized it doesnt copy…file is like 1.7gigs…and i have 4giggs free before and after transfer!!

        Any fix to this?
        Not sure if thisi s the problem but can anyone help?

      • NemesisPrime says:

        It will.

        I know because I’m using an English Patch of Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix and it works like a charm.

    • ColonelPanic says:

      Is it a .ZIP and not .zip?It has to be .ZIP, not .rar or .RAR or .7Z or .7z. Only .ZIP.

  18. Wulf says:

    OK! i fixed it!
    If anyone else needs this fix read this :

    Scroll down, the guy says that you need to go to Control Panel > Folder Options > View > And untick ” Hide extension for known file types ”
    And there you go! Problem solved!

    • Wulf says:

      my problem was my computer automatically hid it, so i couldnt change the .iso to .ISO or .zip to .ZIP haha
      Fixed tho^^

  19. c-zero says:

    Quick question: If I already have the save files for my game backups, are they loaded from the memory stick, or do I have to do something else to load these files?


    • Veskgar says:

      You need to take your save files from your PSP’s memory stick, copy them to the PS Vita –> PSAVEDATA –> adab456adfadf folder on your computer. Then copy the saves over with CMA.

  20. skmjohn1 says:

    Dissidia 012 has a plain white screen after I make my save file. After the moogle sets up the play plan and asks me what difficulty I want the game cuts to an all white screen and after about two minutes an error message pops up. Please help!

  21. nutsplater says:

    to ahbba daba ***,

    right click on the iso game and press rename, then type all capital letters yah dumb shipt

  22. shagrath says:

    I am having trouble with the naming. Windows keeps on adding .iso at the end.
    ex: GAMENAME.ISO.iso or GAMENAME.iso

    Any fix?

    • shagrath says:

      Nevermind. I got it working now.
      Under the Advanced Settings section on the View tab in the Folder Options dialog box, disable the tick box called Hide extensions for known file types.

  23. Dave says:

    Anyone get CWCheat to work?

  24. exequiel says:



    IVE CHANGED THE .iso to .ISO capitalized 8 CHARACTERS..
    but the game doesnt start.. T_T help pls..

  25. GothicIII says:

    Make sure you guys use unpatched ISOs. With patched ones youll get weird problems like above, or the ISO won’t even try to start. However some games have strong copyprotections (Like FF Duodecim or DJMax), so the chance is high, that they wont work.
    And I wanted to mention that you cant transfer ISOs with a size about 1.4GB; CMA will copy it, but right after that it gets deleted. With the FTP-Server it will work anyway—

  26. skmjohn1 says:

    @nutsplater i renamed the iso file and installed it just fine. the problem is that after starting the game (which i wouldn’t be ableto do if i didn’t rename the iso ***) the game cuts to an all white screen.

  27. skmjohn1 says:

    oh *** nevermind i thought you saying to ahbba was just you saying random gibberish. I apologize for the misunderstanding.

  28. JERMski says:

  36. Lymus says:

    Triing to “instal” Corpse Party

    after i say Yes to “Do you wnat to mov ethis backup to ms0:/ISO/?”

    it says “Not enough memory space. You need 742 MB but available 733MB”
    any ideas? :O

  37. African Child says:

    quick question, why do you nid to install the iso and move it?

  38. Dan says:

    Im trying to get my wwe svr 11 game to work and its not been patched and i have deleted dummy files with umdgen but it still doesnt load. is there anything else i can do or is this game not compatible with this cfw

    • Dan says:

      I found a solution. I changed the cpu speed to 222/111. From what I gathered is that some games only run on certain cpu values. Try changing cpu speeds for different isos as that may be the problem.

  39. Error52 says:

    How do I change a file extension from lower case to upper case? I can’t find the answer on google.

  40. lester2020 says:

    Hi there. I have a question about file types like .ISO and such. How can I see the .iso in my Win 7, I wanted to avoid the .ISO.iso part. Any ideas?


    Also which games are compatible to play?

  41. Pan says:

    when i was trying to extract BOOKR.ZIP after it complete it just disappear from the list :S and i have to copy the file over again and it pretty much same thing over and over. idk where it go after i extract it. sorry for my bad english :S

  42. GlueGun says:

    Finely! Got it, Ummmmmmm…….. One Q?, Can it load
    plugins?.. from seplugins…some ho wwwwwww?????

    …………sadface : < cant add folder.

  43. lester2020 says:

    Disregard the last post, and I have another question.

    Is there a chance that it might brick like the PSP? Or is this exploit safe for all units.

    Also are the JP, US, and EU folders on the exploit can be run on a specific game or just the unit?


  44. GlueGun says:

    psp is a UNIT, and from how far the psp is, (signed execute
    code’s to run with the psp. im guessing its a no.
    because 5.03 HEN form way back was used to run code in the RAM,
    and 3.00 days flashed the Firmwares because no body wanted
    to pay the rumor of the 20k psp sdk, so they took the risk,
    and most of these works are done doing the,
    and data.psp, (Signed) compiled using a Encrypter. and
    you ask, well it break?. and where talking digital hardware.
    you have to be stupid to play with the ps vita psp flash0:/.

  45. XDarkMario says:

    every time i try to install a homebrew it pops p saying would like to extract the zip? i click yes ant then the game does not install and the zip is gone

  46. Jake says:

    Thanks to all who helped in making this hack πŸ˜€
    I just have one question: When you are trying to put more games on the vita do you have to overwrite the other games because that makes it take even longer

  47. ghassan says:

    please I NEED VIDEO please

  48. d says:

    Say if we had like 20 isos and 5 emulators all running good on the tnb menu 1.0.1, and we wanted to add just one more game, we would add our new iso to the psavedata and cma all the 21 isos and 5 emulators over to the vita, but when we overwrite the uno save data, do we have to extract all the 21 isos again ..? Is there an easier way to get around that so we can just extract the new iso only while having all our other stuff ready to play?

    • d says:

      Sorry, I just realized the guy above me ask the same question.

    • Vita_User says:

      @ d

      If you had 20 isos and 5 emulators and you wanted to add another you wouldn’t need to add everything again. Once isos or homebrew have been extracted / installed on your Vita, they are copied / extracted to your Ps Vita memory stick until you manually remove them. If you wanted to add another you would only copy the new iso into your savedata exploit folder. The only way you would have to add them all again would be if you forgot to extract / install them within the Tnc or accidentally deleted them.

      Remember, once you have installed something in the ecfw, you don’t need to worry about it, it stays on the memory stick!

  49. FIXED says:

    IF MENU FAILED TO LOAD BECAUSE U TRIED TO DELETE OR EXTRACT A FILE, now the menu is sc*** with black screen!!!!!!!!!! If ati is an extract problem, copy over the same extract folder zip that sc***, now you will have two icons that are the same when the menu loads. Since you can not delete the file otherwise it will get stuck and screw the menu, just copy over the savedata again this time without the file you want to delete. If you have problem with extracting or moving files because of not enough memory, use “psp filer 6.6” emulator to unzip or move files.

  50. qwerty says:

    when ever i put the iso in the save data folder, the exploit wont work and I get an error. once I re exploit it, it works but I cant put the iso on. what is the problem?

  51. jdshnugles says:

    Thank you guys a lot, thank you all, I’m so glad I got it working, it was pretty simple when I got myself on the right track. πŸ˜€

  52. k3nn says:

    wow, in the 2 days since i got CEF, i’ve been hooked on Wagic. at 1st i was really f@cking up because it’s not noob friendly like the PC Magic: the gathering was. eventually, i’m winning now, because i’ve basically created a good deck πŸ˜€

  53. Paolo says:

    Hello i do all the instruction but the uno game is not appearing after i copy it….

    – I install CMA 5
    – Then i download the uno exploit for 2.02 & put the Wagic game & named it WAGIC.ZIP & put it in the uno

    BUT STILL the uno icon is not there? please help anybody

  54. DeNi says:

    can we transfer psp savedata to vita? (savedata not isos)

  55. Matthew Taylor says:


    Just put MSG Peace Walker on Vita. Accepted message to move file to ISO folder however says no room yet there is 16GB left on the card.

  56. Skeith says:

    Hey sorry to be a bother but, I can open the exploit and make it to the TN 1.0.1 menu and my only option is to re execute UNO none of my homebrews or ISOs will show up. The naming isn’t a problem I fully understand the naming process or maybe I don’t I place my ISOs inside of the UNO save exploit name ex. MHFU.ISO or AZBZN.ISO. with the only homebrew I have attempted was wifi transfer and I placed it in the UNO exploit ex. PSP/GAME/WIFITRANSFER/EBOOT.PBP and that also didn’t work. IDK if this matter but i have the Assassin’s Creed white PSvita please help me :) thanks

    • Ty says:

      I’m having a similar issue. I have the naming down CRISIS.ISO, but when I copy it over it wont appear in the TN 1.0.1 menu, just my copy of UNO and FFT which I purchased and installed from the sony store. I’m using the white ACIII vita if that makes any difference? Thanks in advance for any help.

      • Ty says:

        Figured it out by trying a cso conversion. Just converted the file to a .CSO and it apeared next time I transferred it.

      • Chris says:

        do your isos show up as an icon or a corrupt (unrecognized) file might be windows double naming it i used my xp comp (have iso burner app so recognizes them) and it was GAME.ISO.iso so it didnt show up on my vita im encountering a prob with space have 18gb left but says not enough memory

  57. Pat says:

    Where do you actually download stuff? Isos, hombrews, etc…

  58. max says:

    Mine is working perfectly (US Vita). Already played mario kart 64 on it (without sound) and some psp isos. Will sony delete uno from my vita once I connect to their server? Have they already banned anyone from using this (I nkow this may seem to be a naive question, but I just want to know if I can minimize the risks)?

  59. Paulo says:

    Hey I cant Play ISOs When I tryed to copy to my Ps Vita it says I need more space on my memory and I got 8 GB Card and Is my first game that I want to copy It says I Only have 215mb I cant Copy any ISO please Help

  60. Crizizcor says:

  61. Assassin1982 says:

    Working great the tn menu I also have the assassin 3 bundle pack going to try out the mods when I get out of vacation and also try getting some psx games on it also :) great work

  62. and1amazinguy says:

    JC3Fresh is right if you have problem with your ISO convert them to CSO it works

  63. IgnusArmagadan says:

    I had Vita FTP and everything left over from the Mad Blocker Alpha exploit and I can’t seem to get FileZilla to connect with the Vita. It gave me no trouble with 1.81, but this 2.02 Uno exploit is giving me problems. Also, tried to copy over my Parasite Eve CSO file and after it got done copying over like it should have, it’s as if it skipped the CSO in the copying process…

  64. azh_97 (newbie) says:

    What happens if I don’t copy the iso to the ms0?? ( I don’t have enough space to do that) I can still play it without copying it… So.. Please give me the reason while we have to copy it…

  65. exequiel says:


  66. Mangiasassi says:

    Hey Guys, i have this problem:
    I have moved all file to my vita, also WAGIC (i want to try it :P), when i execute uno, i’m seeing wagic, so i’m copying it on my memory, but when i finish, i did not found the wagic game…
    Please Help me ;_;
    Thanks guys

  67. 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?

  68. KuroRyuu913 says:

    3. PUT NAME AS (8 letter name).ZIP or .ISO IN CAPS!

    For anyone who didnt know. I had to screw around with the files until I realized that. So anyone who needs that done, here you go. :)

    • penGu says:

      Or by doing the following:

      First of all, make it so you can see the extensions (If you cannot already see them) –
      Click [Tools] pull down menu
      Click [Folder Options]
      Click the [View] tab
      Untick [Hide extensions for known file types]
      Click [Apply]/[OK]

      Now rename the file all in caps (Make sure you either add a new character or remove a character, for eg;
      1.) -> WAGIC1.ZIP = No good (It will revert back to automatically)
      2.) -> WAGIC.ZIP = Good (Due to removing the character/number “1”)


  69. Remy says:

    Some games after i download

    (only had problems with .csos so far, although i have gotten both .iso and .cso to work)

    and put it on my ps vita, then extract it goes into a black screen.

    e.x Ys: ark…-after i extract and click to play, it goes into select english and once you select one it freezes into a black screen and gets an error

    Valk profile- just goes straight into a black screen

    any help?

    • KuroRyuu913 says:

      its because they are over patched, or under patched. Look for games that would work on PSPs that have CFW of 6.60. If it doesnt work, look for an un-patched game. If that doesnt work, then idk.

  70. Josh says:

    i cant get the files to copy says i have no space on my 8gig card but the games do run fine without copying them so thanks this exploit is great allows me to play some good games….

    i would glady buy the game but sony is lame and dont let us credit card on Japanese store and i like JPN games there the best……

    anyways thanks for this its great

  71. Alv says:

    Ive been trying to make PSX games work but they don’t appear in once i run uno. I tried Breath of Fire 4 and Suikoden 2 but they don’t appear in my game. Ive already installed Star ocean and Valkyrie profile on the vita.

  72. Josh says:

    a mistake i was not having the .iso in caps too so it did not show up….

    i had it CRISISCO.iso and it would not show up at all

    as soon as i renamed it too CRISISCO.ISO it works fine

    so if ur games are not showing up make sure the .ISO is in CAPS too :)

    if u are using windows make sure u are not hiding file extensions…

  73. Remy says:

    i am guessing there is a max games on the menu, idk what the specific number is but i tested each game (out of 13 psp .iso/.cso) to make sure they work and run correctly but once i put them all in at once (yes i have a 32gb mem card and it only takes 16) i get an error after pressing x in uno menu anyone have a fix?

  74. DragonBorracho says:

    how do you delete isos copied to the vita memory card?

  75. Drake says:

    im using y menu and when i have copied 1 game and after that i wnt to copy more games and i overwrite yhe previous savedata the previous game gert deleted and i hv to copy both gaMES Togerther again and again??????any solution

  76. Bob says:

    Can someone please help me? I’ve gotten isos and csos to work no problem. I managed to get a GBC emu to work. I cannot get a GBA emulator to work at all. I can get it to the vita. The exploit recognizes it. It even extracts it. Then it just disappears. I’ve tried 4 different emulators but it just did the same thing. Help? Please and thanks…

  77. black cat says:

    when homebrew is extracted where does it go?

  78. chris says:

    where can u get iso from

  79. pr0xy says:

    All works fine, but still cant seem to get Valkyria Chronicles 2, Dissidia duodecim 012, or Z.H.P. running. :(

  80. Ghost_Fish_Killa says:

    can some 1 help me i keep trying to get vita ftp to install but every time it extracts it disappears on me

  81. GUS says:

    i cant get iso’s to work, only cso’s that ive gotten directly from a server. im doing everything right i think but it still wont work even after i use a compressor to turn an iso into a cso. can anyone help?

  82. Paul says:

    is there anyway i can get uno for free… coz i forgot my password?…
    plss guys help!!..

  83. dreamer says:

    I am total newbie, I did everything as u described, but didn’t got that screen in the step 6 , as you have. More over there is no bubble or pop up says “UNO” in my PSVita? Can you please guide me how to get “UNO” in my PSVita? Please somebody help me out….

  84. Mohsen says:

    Do I need to have the UNO installed on Vita before doing this?
    I have done everything correctly, and now I have the copied the Saved Data file (Step 5) into the device. But I don’t see any UNO bubble appearing on my device.

  85. wololo says:

    Since everybody else seems to be eventually getting it to work, you should probably only be *** at yourself. Enough people have confirmed it works by now that you shouldn’t question that. What is not working exactly? Are you getting an error message? When does it not work?

  86. exequiel says:

    mine is ok.. but other games doesnt, what maybe the problem?
