TN-V4: How to Install Homebrews (Installment 1 of 3)

TN-V4 is now publicly available (for Firmwares up to 3.01) and Total_Noob is finally able to rest. Since he did the main job, programming his awesome eCFW, it is now up to us to help all the users that might have problems with some functions of TN-V4.

I would like to show you in 3 installments how to install homebrews, ISO and CSO files and finally plugins, CTF-Themes and other various PSP hacking related files (installment 1, 2 and 3, respectively).

Let’s get started!

The most important thing is that you own a PS Vita that runs TN-V4. Can you boot into the XMB? Great!

For installing homebrews we need a few tools, I will show you how to do this at windows 7.

At first we need WinRAR: Download (use the version of your language)

Then be sure to enable the file extensions (Important!): Click me

We also need homebrews. Just get them from somewhere in the internet.

Got everything?

 

How to prepare the homebrews for transfering them to your PS Vita

In this part I will show you how to prepare the homebrews for transfering them to your PS Vita.

At first create a folder called PSP. Within this PSP folder create another folde called GAME.

Now check your homebrews if they look fine. There should be an EBOOT.PBP (and sometimes some other files too) inside of a folder (e.g.: PSPFiler -> EBOOT.PBP). If this is the case, then the homebrew is good to go.

Now move said folder (in our example PSPFiler) and put it into the previous GAME folder. If we did everything right we now have this structure: /PSP/GAME/PSPFiler/EBOOT.PBP.

If this is the case, then go back to the folder in which the PSP folder is.

Right click the PSP folder and create a .ZIP file. Be sure to call it INSTALL.ZIP and be very sure to enable the file extension (see above).

If the INSTALL.ZIP file is ready, put it into the exploit savedata folder (for example the Megamix exploit: NPEZ00068).

Now copy the exploit savedata folder to your PS Vita.

Start the exploit game and trigger the exploit.

If you are in the XMB, go to GAME and check for your homebrew, it should now appear.

Press Triangle on it and select install.

Install said homebrew and then delete the .zip file.

Go back and check your savegames, photos, music or videos.

Re-check your games and the homebrew you want to install should appear.

Thats it. Pretty easy, isnt it?

If you’ve got any problems with installing homebrews, refer to my tutorial video below.

I wish you a lot of fun with Total_Noobs TN-V4 eCFW.

    =((( i really tried everything now, but still “corrupted Data”. Also called my Filer Folder “PSPFILER”. Tried compression Normal and Store. I tried different Emulators. I have the file extensions correct. I downloaded the files of the Emulators from Wololo.net and from other sites.

    Is it possible that i cant use the newest files of the emulators on FW 3.00? i downlaoded the same versions as in the video.

        I had from the begining 2 savegame folders. I could only install pspfiler with my first savegame folder (ULES01164) and then all others on my second savegame folder (ULES01164_GameData0). But at first i had to install 1 homebrew on my first savegame folder, dont know why.

    Hi and first off thanks to EVERYONE who’s made this possible, from Total_Noob to other programmers, and commenters helping everyone. Maybe someone can help me too, I’ve successfully installed TN-V4 on 2.61 with Fieldrunners, and I successfully installed a couple ISO’s (actually on CSO format seems to work for me, but it works). When I came to homebrews, I installed the first one, Nester without problem, then I tried a second emulator (Picodrive) and even though everything looks right, files copy over, show up on XMB and allow me to install, however after I install I cannot find the 2nd emulator. The iso’s and nester are still there, but picodrive isn’t. I tried a variety of different emus (daedalus, gpsp, snes9xtyl) and always the same issue, is anyone else having this problem? Thanks!

      I seem to have found my problem (my own mistake), I was creating the zip file from a folder called INSTALL, so my file structure was INSTALL>PSP>GAME> etc… instead of creating it from folder PSP>GAME etc…not sure this will help anyone

But Idk how to get PDFs in..when in book it doesn’t show anything besides the menu interface. I made a COMMON folder in INSTALL.ZIP/PSP/ folder where the GAME folder is but it doesn’t show.

    Also, wanted to let people know. I just installed a bunch of homebrew at the same time. I put each folder (all caps and each name less than 8 characters long) into the \\PSP\GAME folder. I had to put the INSTALL.ZIP file in the “_GameData0″ folder myself. When I went to install, it only showed one image (the first in alphabetical order) but it installed every homebrew I had in the folder. When asked to delete the file, I selected yes and then exited the memory card back to the main menu I went back into the Game–>Memory Card and all the homebrew showed up installed and running smoothly.

    Ive followed directions and managed to install SNES 9xTYL. The homebrew runs but stalls while loading roms. Any rom will start to load and linger forever.

    Anyone find a work-around?
