Release: TN-V

The highly anticipated Custom Emulator Firmware TN-V from Total_Noob is finally here!

 TN-V brings the XMB experience to the Vita and has been in development for over half a year, and is finally ready to be released. The goal was to bring a full PSP CFW to Vita and its been finally accomplished. TN-V supports ALL exploits we have ever released and will support any future kernel exploits that happen to get released, but remember that there’s a small chance of one being released anytime soon considering the rarity of them. The next release will probably be VHBL which doesn’t support TN-V and can only do emulators and homebrew.

Below you can find the features, instructions and some tips. Please read through it thoroughly but if you have any issues, head over to the /Talk forums! We hope everyone enjoys this, and special thanks to TN for his hard work!

Some of the features of TN-V include:

  •  The whole PSP environment
  •  Recovery menu and VSH menu (many options to set)
  •  Support of plugins
  •  CPU speed changement (makes no sense, as the difference is only minimal :P)
  • Install Addon
  • Network update
  • 1.50 kernel homebrews compatibility
  •  Higher homebrews compatibility (VLF homebrews)
  •  High PSX compatibility (without sound)
  •  High backups compatibility
  •  Support of prometheus patched backups

 Instructions: (Note: This requires an exploit to use, TN-V is not an exploit itself!)

  1.  Search the game which you own in ‘savedatas’ and extract the associated savedata to ‘\PS Vita\PSAVEDATA\XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\’, (The ’XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX’ is a bunch of random numbers and letters.)
  2.  Transfer it to your PS Vita using CMA.
  3.  Obtain the 6.60 EBOOT (link below!) and copy it to the savedata folder with the name ’660.PBP’
  4.  Run the exploit game and hold the R trigger while the game is loading the exploited savedata.
  5.  Once you are in the recovery menu, select: -> Advanced -> Install 6.60 files
  6. As original OFW files are needed, this step has to be done. But ONLY ONE TIME.
  7. If you are not familiar with the recovery menu, only adjust the settings which are recommended.
  8.  Enjoy 6.60 TN-V

 If you’ve found a bug, please either contact Total_Noob or write the problem in the official /Talk forums topic which is collecting bugs. If your problem lies on the initializing of the exploit, please report the debug color which appeared.

    This looks amazing. Beautiful menu with the best ecfw features yet!

    However, I’m still glad I updated. ^ ^

    I was really missing the online play and video streaming.
    And they were as good as I remember!

    However, if you prefer the benefits of CFW over online, definitely get TN-V. It does look awesome.

          If you want to use that method you need to zip it and out it in the save folder. However it is much easier to just use VitaFTP.

        Iso =/= piracy, unless you download.

        If they don’t define whether the iso is self-dumped, don’t probe. They’ve asked their question without confessing piracy. Nothing else is our business.

        It’s not our job to investigate their real situation. They’re just asking a legit question.

        “Rooting out” unadmitted pirates only hurts us all.

        Cringe every time some fool doesn’t get that.

    did this – works perfectly. installed a sweet Chrono Trigger theme and made a sweet background for it (though the theme is missing a Magus icon of all things O_o…)
    Amazing work TN. Couldn’t connect to PSN (said was under maintenance) but thats no biggie.

    I am assuming i would need to install this on both my memory cards now correct, not just the one?

    can anyone help. in the instructions it says to change the home button configuration to the touch screen rather than start-select. how do we change this? is it a native Vita setting or within TNv?? i checked the tn-v recovery config and couldn’t find anything for it. maybe i just dont play psp games enough ;)….

      Nothing, you need an exploit. You can copy UNO to your Vita though if you happen to have a PS3.

Forgive my Noobish question but the TN-V (ECFW ) will allow access to the store but it will not let you play online vita games such as battle royal. But u can get the dlc for the characters right? You can tell me I’m wrong, that we can play online ! Uno hack 2.02

      Yes, make sure your homebrew is FBOOT.PBP and not VBOOT.PBP. PSX works as well.

    Thank you very much Total_Noob and the other developers that helped make this happen and wololo as well for running such a great site. I’m really glad I didn’t update from 2.02. This is by far the best CEF for the Vita. It’s so sexy I’m touching myself 0_o Total_Noob, I think I will have to donate to your charitable cause. Keep up the great work. It’s very much appreciated.

    Like one of the other posts I read, I was able to get the camera working (initially crashed after taking a picture, which created the appropriate DCIM folder, etc.). I even recorded a video which I used to test the video playback via XMB (which worked, although froze at the end of playback). Anyways, the main thing I wanted to post is the folder structure for the multimedia stuff… ms0:/VIDEO for videos, ms0:/MUSIC for mp3s, etc. and ms0:/PSP/PHOTO for .jpg, etc.

    What does “High backups compatibility” mean? The TN-V can play SELF-DUMPED, LEGAL, NON-DOWNLOADED LEGITIMATE PSP game backups? SELF-DUMPED, LEGAL, NON-DOWNLOADED, LEGITIMATE Vita game backups?

    It has higher homebrew and backup compatibility, but ive noticed it’s kinda lacking in prx plugin support. i cant run xmbcontrol or ultimate vsh menu :( those are like my MUST haves… PRO CFW has a function called “old plugin support” which let me run the final build of ultimate vsh menu on 6.60 pro-c2 (its normally only for up to 5.50). it didn’t work on tn-v, no i got frostegator’s port which works with 6.20-6.60 and it still doesn’t work it lets me enable it but it still doesn’t show! i cant turn the xmbcontrol plugin on because tn-v wont start up at all when its enabled… could someone pass this alone to TN for me? or could i reach him myself? thanks!

    Ok…so awesome….and got CXMB and a CTF i actually found and like and it works right, only thing is CWCHEAT does not work well on this? or you have to activate it only for PSP games, because any other homebrew won’t run if cwcheat is not deactivated, and I guess this is true since I tried it.
