Release: TN-V v3

TN-V v3 was completed a little sooner than expected and you can now update!

If you are unaware of what TN-V is, TN-V is a 6.60 Custom Emulator Firmware for the PSVita that takes use of all kexploits released for firmwares 2.02 and below bringing the full PSP XMB environment. You can read more about TN-V on the official release page here.

Otherwise for those of you aware, we just recently announced the v3 update for TN-V however its already completed and ready for you to install right now. TN’s new update for TN-V brings a ton of bug fixes and support for new features. Some of you were having issues with SC3 and Urbanix JP exploits, but you should no longer have any issues or errors. Below you can find the complete changelog for the update. This may be the last update for TN-V on 2.02 and below.

Changelog TN-V v3:

  • - Added possibility to play the exploit game. The first 2 letters of the savedata folder will be replaced with ‘TN’.
  • - Added support for the great VSH plugin ‘PSPConsole’.
  • - Added support for Prometheus patched backup games.
  • - Fixed Super Collapse 3 and Urbanix JP exploit.
  • - Fixed msfs driver bug that caused data corruption which led to resetted settings, again.
  • - Rewrote ELF loading. Fixed loading of static ELF of some games like ‘Splinter Cell’.
  • - Redirected non-working power functions to similar functions.
  • - PSN purchased PSX games work again.

Download

The update is OTA so all you have to do to update is navigate to ‘Network Update’ in the XMB or alternatively you can find a download here (Install it like a homebrew). Thanks again to Total_Noob for his hard work and dedication.

    Crud. Symphony of the Night in DXC still doesn’t work… TN it would be awesome if you could get it to work. The game loads up fine but when you try to boot up SotN it crashes (80020148). Maybe one day.

    In castlevania x chronicles you can get the full Sotn after the normal gameplay with a brand new voice for dracula and maria

    So if this is the last update for people under 2.02, would we have to purchase a game with an exploit that works on 2.02/higher for future TN-V versions? Or is there a free app/game with an exploit. I paid for Monster Hunter just so I could have the original hack, I don’t wanna shell out more cash for another crappy game just to use future releases of TN-V unless there’s some game-changing feature I couldn’t live without.

      Monster Hunter is not a crappy game.

    Does this allow you to play on psn/access psn store as well or is online blocked b/c you need latest update?

    1. Theredbaron’s avatar

      Yes, you can access PSN. However, only the PSP store.

    What does “PSN purchased PSX games work again.” mean?

    I bought crash bandicoot and spyro. tried to transfer them from the ps3 to the vita (i am using uno). Crash was able to be transferred but not spyro. it was not detected.

    Does this update mean i can now use it?

    Reply

    1. Jd8531’s avatar

      Meaning PSX games downloaded through the PSP store in the XMB

      1. CaptainObvious’s avatar

        Thank you Jd8531 and Theredbaron.
        I used the PSN store from the uno exploit and managed to download the spyro games! :D

        While I can play the game from the uno exploit (though without sound support obviously), do you know if it is possible to move it from the tn-v xmb to the main vita screen? would love to get sound running

    For those getting ERROR: 80020148 when loading games

    This error simply means that you are running an older version of the PSP’s firmware, and a newer version needs to be installed for the game to load correctly.

      Trololololo? Or just straight up noob? I mean if you’re kinda new thanks for trying to help but I think some games can’t be run on 6.60 CEF no matter how many updates? What I saw about your comment its saying to UPDATE the system…

            depends on which firmware you have

            Can you point out for me games that i need for any firmware as long as i can hack it ? cuz i am planning on buying a vita and it will be probably a factory firmware which will be pretty low ..

    Can I install this just using the Vita FTP application? If so, where do I place the files? (I accidentally checked for updates on my Vita at one point, and Content Manager won’t let me transfer files to my vita through CMA anymore.)

    This little information doesn’t help us. You people need to learn how to give more detail then this.

    Does this work on 2.10?
    Can it play PSP iso games?
    Does all the homebrews work?

    I am on 2.02. I need to know before i update.
    I don’t care if this is a stupid question because i am confused right now. lol

    1. wololo’s avatar

      Let’s put it this way: if this worked on 2.10, we would have said it. But you are right that this could have been stated more explicitly.

    2. Jd8531’s avatar

      It blatantly says TN-V is for firmwares 2.02 and below. This is just an update.

    Just double-checking with other people who have updated TN-V, to see if it’s the same for everyone who updated through the PSP updater:

    1. TN-V v2 had its own icon, but TN-V v3 used a generic icon?
    2. In both cases after updating, System Information only says TN-V, not if it’s v2 or v3?

    One of the features was to be able to play the exploit game. I can confirm that Uno does not play, hangs at the point where it loads the save data…

    I go to download this OTA update from TNv2 and it then tells me that I’ll have to go to System Update>Update from Storage Media. On that same screen at the bottom it says X to Enter or O for Back. If I hit X it says This game cannot be started. If I hit O to take me back to the XMB and I go to Update via Storage Media it just says No applicable update data was found. Help?

    1. VIRACY’s avatar

      Or is there a file that I can download through PC and install this the same way I did the first TN-V?

      I wondered the same thing. You have to go to Game on the XMB and it will be in there.

    Ark can play Symphony of the Night just fine, I unlocked it from castlevania x chronicles and tested it.
    TN-V definitely can’t.

    I guess it’s the inferno driver? And why isn’t it ported to TN-V? it’s the best driver hands down. M33 is too old already…

    Getting sick of the hassle to keep updating or not…IF anyone can confirm, Does this exploit work with emulators? or the rest od the homebrew properly this time? I’m on TN-C and enjoying it and the last time i switched to TN-V I had problems, and just errors, so does this fix those problems???, can someone please confirm?

    I wonder. I just bought the Vita and it came with FW 1.61. I’m thinking of updating to 2.02 but from what I gather, TN-V v3 won’t work unless I own UNO (which isn’t even available anymore), so does that mean I won’t be able to hack the Vita? Am I forced to update and just wait for an exploit to be released and buy the game right then and there? That seems to be the trend so far.
