(Video)Total_Noob announces TN-V for Vita: XMB & PSN access

 Total_Noob has officially announced his new project: 6.60 TN-V for the PlayStation Vita.

6.60 TN-V is a Custom Emulator Firmware (CEF) for the PSVita 2.02 UNO exploit. Total_Noob’s TN-V will be different from his last release (TN-C) as it will include a fully functioning XMB something we saw only briefly in pictures awhile back, however now Total_Noob has a video to show it in action. TN-V will support PSN access, so you’ll be able to connect to the PlayStation Network to download PSP games and access content, something that has been not possible after the mandatory 2.05 update and blocking of the Charles & Fiddler proxies. You’ll only be able to connect to the PSP’s store since TN-V uses part of the PSP 6.60 firmware (to connect), and we are limited to the PSPemu on the Vita.

There isn’t a concrete, established release date yet. TN-V is still a work in progress. Right now the UNO 2.02 exploit is the only targeted exploit, no word if the other exploits will be supported yet. Total_Noob says that there are quite some bugs that ll need to be worked on, however you can see a video of it working below!

        Why the hell u guys dont understand the ammount ofskill required in doing the level of his work, which is much greater than any other dev/ark maker.

          You can’t *just* port a firmware menu to an exploit. Now, giving that the firmware is a file in a PBP format, this is made so only you can install it on a psp. Now using the same code, you can make a *somewhat* port of the XMB to it. It would take a lot of decrypting and modifying modules in order for it to run.

          Basically what I’m saying is, you cant just put the 6.60 PBP called EBOOT.PBP and rename it to MENU.PBP. Otherwises, you will get a loading error and a crash.

            ok, “JUST PORT”: REWRITE SOME PARTS OF A PROGRAM OR A WHOLE PROGRAM TO RUN ON OTHER PLATAFORM THAN THE ORIGINAL. yeah, “JUST PORT” sound simple, but isn´t. TN just port the firmware because he bring it from the PSP to the Vita.

        Wouldn’t it be better to say he ‘implemented’ the missing parts in the efw so xmb/psn can run? I believe they can’t add anything vita side.
        Whether he took it from ofw or wrote from scratch, in both cases is an awesome work.

          Correct. But which would you choose, stay on 2.02 just to play PSP games or update to a newer firmware just to play homebrews?

            The 2.02 exploit also allows homebrew access so I would stay on 2.02.

      you can buy them, but they would show up in the PSP emu. however you could transfer them to the VITA using a ps3, and get them in the VITA menu that way

      Yes, you can use an ISO of Uno to make this work. I know because I downloaded an ISO of MHFU while on an eCFW and got it to load the VHBL through MHFU.

      Remain on 2.02 at all times until they release a exploit that can play PSP isos. I rather stick to 2.02, I really don’t care about any exploits unless it can play psp iso :)

      i missed the UNO exploit but, UNO is back on the EU store now, i downloaded it on my ps3, connected my Vita to my laptop and used OpenCMA, while the transfer from pc to vita otor vita to pc screen was up i disconnected it from laptop and plugged it in to ps3, clicked on connect to ps3, then transfer UNO to your vita.

      if you have a PS3 then this is well worth it.

      hope this helps.

          you aren’t missing anything assuming you got the PSP version. the game is “blacklisted” which means it can be downloaded to your ps3 but there is no way to make it appear in content manager until it is no longer blacklisted

          Reply

        3. Tony86’s avatar

          You need to make sure you have the psp UNO and openCMA, I done it a few days ago and works for me?

          Make sure its properly connected to your pc, open CMA on your vita, let it load until you get to the screen asking what you want to do, copy games from pc to vita or vita to pc.

          At that point, unplug it ONLY!! From your pc usb port, plug it in to ps3.

          Now on your vita it will say disconnected or something similar, it will ask what do you want to connect to and just tap ps3.

          I hope this helps.

    Really great stuff. I’d love having a proper XMB (as I never had a PSP, and like the PS3′s XMB). ARK works well enough in terms of compatibility/speed, but an XMB is a nice touch. Now to see whether it has something ARK doesn’t besides the XMB (maybe getting in PS1 games with sound first).

    I hate to sound ungrateful, because I am most certainly not; I appreciate all the work the developers and hackers do to contribute to the scene. However, I think the Vita scene is ready for a real User/Kernal Level exploit for the Vita. I know Yiunthl (I know I butchered his username, I’ll call him “Y”) has a user-level exploit and he has no plans on releasing it. While I can understand Y’s point on why he would rather hold onto the exploit, I think the Vita is a dying platform to be honest. I’m not going to bother tossing around numbers on why I think the platform is dying, I think most people are honestly aware of its status.

    To be blunt, if this playstation event February 20th SONY is having doesn’t impress me for the future of the Vita, and we do not see some random person or Y (doubtful) release a Vita User-level exploit or better, I think I’m putting the Vita away in the closet.

    Most of us who have the Playstation Vita and are involved in the hacking scene have owned/own a PSP, I think we’re passed that now and need something new.

    I really do not want to see Smartphones and tablets steal away our homebrew scene, as they will never be viable gaming platforms in my opinion for console-quality games. At the same time, there is no way I can conceive of having the best of both worlds in a device; a phone looks and functions poorly with dedicated gaming controls; a gaming console with dedicated gaming controls, functions poorly as a phone.

    I appreciate all the work Total_Noob and the rest of the Vita hackers/modders have done for the scene.

        You need to understand that criticism will come all the time. Responding to a long paragraph, that if you read does make some sense and provides solid points, with just ‘blah blah blah’ is very inane to say the least.

        He never even said he was not excited about this release, maybe if you read and didn’t act like all the others you would have gathered that he DOES appreciate his work.

          And you need to understand, such criticisms of painstaking freeware are always wrong garbage, and will always be treated as such.

          It looks like most of that post is trying to justify “come on it’s time to give us something better” as “not ungrateful”. I don’t find a single “solid point” other than impatient greed for something bigger. Nothing in this wall of text is worth a second thought, to me.

          And end user presuming to tell the programmers themselves what the scene is “ready for” is self-felating garbage, honestly.

      psx uses components of the psp that aren’t emulated by the vita.
      even with a proper port of pops sound would just crash it because the processor used for sound isn’t there.

      it IS possible to get sound working through other methods, but it’s quite hard to do.

    To everyone saying “we need something new!” and stuff like that, please just shut up. It’s annoying to read your ignorant posts. Developers can’t just create a Vita-land exploit because “we need something new!” That is implying that the developers are holding out on us. If they could hack the vita they would have done so. The only reason we’re messing with all of this psp stuff is because it’s ALL WE CAN DO RIGHT NOW. That’s as far as we’ve gotten. so stop bitching!

        He talks like a grateful end-user, who has his facts strait, defending developers. And he’s right.

        They’re giving giving giving, mostly selflessly. They’re deciding when to add things, based mostly off of our interests, which is their right. Anyway, the wait generally comes from delivering something more finished or harder to patch.

        Every “full hack” they have atm is apparently easily patchable. If they keep the native exploit private, they can use its full access to seek things like full, updatable CFW for everyone.

        Dbag move to criticize someone for sticking up for the devs.
