    Damn, Sony must be having a nervous breakdown by now.

  2. Esarria says:

    Omg thank you! Grabbed king of pool . *Does the happy dance*

    • Sky Yuki says:

      Me : Wow people doing happy dance after grabbed exploit?? how stupid
      “Me going to shower”
      “Doing random dance”
      Me : what the heck am i dancing for

  3. cham4356 says:

    Oh man, I already purchased Ben 10 but King Of Pool is actually $6 cheaper and the files are already there. 😛 That kinda sucks, oh well. I didn’t know. :(

    • ps3y2kvirus says:

      At least your supporting the devs, Maybe hopefully some parents will give their kids their ps vita’s early so they can enjoy

  4. Chris says:

    I’m glad i could grab the ben 10 game before it was pulled, hope the files will come soon :)
    However, I’m really mad because I’ve seen some guy leaking the information in a youtube video…

  5. carlos says:

    hello i bought now king of pool in portugal EU tanks and now how this works? xD i need to do a back up right?

  6. Brandon says:

    Does anyone know if you can use Charlesproxy to bypass the (soon to be released) firmware update? I play online a lot and I don’t want to lose the ps+ games

  7. CompC says:

    What files do we use to launch the exploit? When I use the files posted for 3.0, it says “load failed, the data is corrupted.”

    I transferred both folders of the save games for the exploit, and copied the two files for TN-V plus 660.PBP… but I can’t get it to work.

    • Chris says:

      I’m not sure but i think you may not copy all the files from the hack savegame into the original, only TN.BIN, FLASH0.TN and the original firmware 6.60

  8. ryohki says:

    doesn’t appear to be on the AUS store :(
    damn you leakers, I missed ben 10

  9. mahay says:

    Thanks to you guys I grabbed both (ben 10 & king of pool). so since the files for ben 10 haven’t been released yet, is it okay to apply TN-V for king of pool (ver 3.00) or do I have to wait for new updated files as current ones won’t work? Again, you guys rock!

  10. binarycomplex says:

    Awesome. got king of pool on two memory cards and backed up in opencma on linux. tried the latest TN files I must be doing something wrong. looking forward to figuring out what it is, may be linux arguing with opencma corrupting the save file… Who knows. Thanks Wololo.

  11. SenseiGai says:

    Thank you wololo for this opportunity. Programming here I come. 😀

  12. Jlove says:

    ben10 =770 mb 9.99$
    king of poll=74mb 2.99
    I boutgh both.

  13. w33g33 says:

    Available on EU/ita store right now

  14. Dmaskell92 says:

    King of Pool really saved my ***! When VitaFTP crashed, I lost GOLOR. I’m still on 2.12, but it’s nice to know I can update to 3.01 later on.

  15. Kenny says:

    Not on the Aus store. Damn.

  16. kimin says:

    here is hope! thank you god!

  17. serious question says:

    This King of pool exploit works on the US version?

  18. chpwhite says:

    I am a big believer of karma. U guys have helped this community a lot. Trust me, only good things await for you guys in the future. Thank you.

  19. CymraegAce says:

    I managed to grab Ben 10 straight after getting the email about it yesterday morning. Glad that the people who missed it have another shot at this, I was devestated when I thought I’d missed the 101-in-1 exploit. Big ups for the releases. I never thought I’d see some CFW for the Vita. Time to relive the PSP glory years. Heh.

  20. Nigga says:

    what about arcade pool? is this game still exploitable?
    because i already bought this game in the last ninja released

  21. matt says:

    i think the best option for us is the devs should launch a surprise attack like this and we get the fokkin ninja simultaneously

  22. zahid says:

    it says “load failed The data is corrupted”
    which file do we use.

  23. David says:

    I tried to install it with the TN-IV files. It doesn´t work, it says Load failed. The data is corrupted.

    We will wait patiently, thanks!

  24. frank-jaeger says:

    Also getting load failed when using king of pool exploit on 3.01 (eur ver). Will wait for ben 10 files…

  25. che says:

    Is the king of pool exploit faster than megamix one? Cause im on 3.01 and I didnt even know king of pool works on 3.01 im fine with megamix but that game sucks and its 400mb and im runnin out of space

    • Vita means life says:

      I think saving space is probably worth it. I don’t know how Megamix works, but with KoP you have to manually load the exploit save.

  26. Makoto-kun says:

    Downloading now cuz it uses less space than 101-in-1 Megamix.

  27. SIM_sk says:

    grabbed it from the German store thx :)

  28. Makoto-kun says:

    Works like a charm on 3.01 Vita HK.

  29. FrenchGamer says:


  30. Saqib says:

    Purchased Eur version of the game loaded TN-V4. “Load failed The Data is Corrupted” :(

  31. Arcane says:

    101-in-1 and King of Pool working great on 3.01 Vita EU with TN-V5. Great work again guys!

  32. Se Jin says:

    Can anyone clarify? Does it work on the US version?

  33. NNNRT says:

    King of Pool EU version not working on 3.01

  34. kevi says:

    So, does it work on EU Vita/Store version or not? Sorry I am a bit confused

  35. hutchy says:

    Wow wololo you saw how sad we were last night about the leaks and you made everything better today! Im glad I got up early to check the forums! Im not sure how I can put my happiness into words! Thank you x1000

  36. evakant says:

  37. Jarvanso says:

    i have 3.01 eur and king of pool and doesnt work :( i dont know why.

  38. Anonymous says:

    Thanks wololo just finished to download king of pool! You are the best

  39. Mishka84 says:

    I think the EU Savedata is corrupt, but the HK Savedata works without loading TNV – so we must wait. :)

  40. job says:

    Just got TN-V6.

    TNX TN

  41. Chrono says:

    For all who say that data is corrupt:
    try these files http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=36115

    I’ve already installed 6.60 with King Of Pool EU)

  42. kevi says:

    Holding R while loading the savegame seems to work I am in recovery currently. EU/German here.

  43. zahid says:


  44. dave says:

  47. kevi says:

    OK seems my comment didnt appear as I wanted to. “+” and the rest are two seperate links where you have to download the files you need (savegame according to your location)

  48. spdübel says:

    Thank you so much!!!

    I was too late for Megamix and literally slept during the Ben-10-Crisis…
    So waking up and reading that I missed *again* an exploit was like the “Choke-Hold of the Anti-Christmas Dragon of Wrath”!

    But while getting kicked in the *** on BF4 *kind of mortification for me* I read about KoP, grapped my PS Vita, got kicked on BF4 and there it was…

    My very own christmas miracle brought by Father Wololo!!!

    You won’t believe it but you made my chrismas days so much better! I will even be able to face the relatives of my wife with a smile *for the next fourteen days!!!* knowing I have just to go to the cellar giving me 2h searching that fancy rioja they drink like water while playing 1h:59m the games I *yes, I actually* love!

    Again: Thank you so much!

  49. PspJunkie says:

    Cool. Just grabbed this. Nice it’s only 71 mb. (And cheap)

  50. bopz says:

    HAHA thx I didn’t give a dman about those ninja release as i don’t care of tn-v4 cause it personally uninterest me but for a $5 game i can give a try lol thx

  51. king slime says:

    anybody can buy this game for me ?plz help me im can’t buy form the web

  52. Emil says:

    Im still on 2.61. Any chance to get fieldrunners from ps store without a ps3 to my vita? Otherwise i buy this game now..thank you!

    • Netrix says:

      No, but even if you had a PS3, you wouldn’t be able to transfer it, if it is the US version that you would be getting. The US version isn’t set up properly to allow copying it to the Vita from the PS3.

      Without a PS3, no chance at all, so don’t buy it.

  53. hotdogicn says:

    I grabbed the game from US store,but when I try to load the gamedata(downloaded from hackinformer),it told me data corrupted…….I did as what”http://wololo.net/2013/12/17/release-tn-v4-for-ps-vita-3-01-and-below/” said,but I can’t get it work.
    Could anybody help me please?

  54. smiletime123 says:

  58. Francis says:

    Hi, Please help me, when im trying to have a load in King of pool, im getting error (C1-2858-3).

  59. 128bit says:

    At this moment i’m not an owner of PSVITA,but i have 1 ps3 whit CFW 3.55 and 1 ps3 original…
    Can i download the game from the psnetwork whit the PS3 original,and then trasfer the game from the ps3 original or ps3 CFW 3.55 from the ps3 to the PSVITA ?!?!
    For use then the TNV4 or V5 ?

    • Ricky D says:

      No – you need to get the game downloaded, installed on a vita and backed up to your PC before they pull it from the store

  60. obscura says:

    open cma v 6.0 by hossain why it dont’work on Vista Home Premium that’s all i need for it to work on 3.01 help..

  61. Galford says:

    ahaha everybody is happy 😀 all smiles on holidays !!!

  62. mlc says:

    Well at least there is some happy news =)

    Hopefully this lucky coincidence will lessen the disappointment of the ninja release.

  63. REMF says:


    C1-2858-3 error

  64. Dominic says:

    Fantastic! this game is much better than the megamix in my opinion, it is much less space, it helps when limited to a 4gb card :)

  65. Tiguy82 says:

    Thank for sending an email warning about the exploit! I was able to buy King of Pool. Now it’s time to try the exploit! :)

  66. paragonx9 says:

    Hey guys, I found one of the leaks:
    hopefully there’s a guy in the forums called “sebastorron” so he can be banned or something…

  67. Redirr says:

    Works for me.

    I got King of pool from Store.

    Used the savedata “FW301-KingOfPool_US_Other.zip”
    Follow the tutorial post main page ok!!

    Now let’s do some hacks rsrsr

    • joeybada$$ says:

      what tutorial post

    • Davey says:

      OK I’ve already TN-V4 hacked 100-1 Megagames /w FW3.01, it worked great.. and now I got King of Pool to have ready for a buddy who hasent hacked yet but I want the process to be easy for him so we both now have KOP and Ill have a second eCFW title on my Vita no big deal… OK.. KOP is WAY more confusing! The FW301-KingOfPool_US_Other.zip has two folders. Normally we restore the save-data folder with amended files. but the GAMEDATA folder would require restoring the entire game! (right?)

  68. Raicen says:

    I can get into the green screen and Recovery mode more than that = freeze why…

    • ZHyPeR says:

      That happened to me at first you put the files in the wrong folder I would tell you the folder but I forgot what’s is called and I don’t have my of atm

  69. Eddie says:

    Ive got my cousin a Vita for Christmas…. Can I make him an account, buy the game and copy it to my Mac via CMA then copy it his Vita on Christmas?

    • Dark GOD says:

      You can backup your Memory card then unregister your Vita from your PSN account.
      Create the new one for your cuz and get that game downloaded to your Vita then back it up to the PC.

      Now switch back to your original PSN for your Vita and restore your files back.


      You could simply share your PSN with him and both of you can buy games together to save money.

      If his your cuz why not do that?
      (That is if your not already using 2 portables on your PSN)

      Hope this helps.

  78. No longer a Rager says:

  90. ogogo says:

  93. Money says:

  94. HD says:

    Can some one help me !!! i put the isos in nph gamedata0 file where the tn.bn 660.pbp and all that stuff is, i put all letters cap 8 characters with .iso at the end tryed without it 2 and it does appear on the memory colum where the games are the only games that appear are the one purchased by psn can someone tell me what am i doing wrong?..Thanks in advanced.

  95. ogogo says:

    did u write the .ISO big too ? just do GAME.ISO and check if u have rly the Extensions to show enabled cuz if u name it GAME.ISO and the extansions are hidden then it would have the name GAME.ISO.iso and u wont even know it

  96. JonJonB says:

    Just wanted to post and say thanks for this announcement, I just missed the ninja release last time and came here on the off chance there was any news about some future hope only to find that there was a game still available AND that I had the funds to pay for it already on my US account (change from previous purchases). I was all over this and now have a vita running TN ecfw thanks to you guys and your great work.

  97. best one says:

    i have a king of pool the uk version and it gives me a (c1-2858-3)

  98. joeybada says:

    Can someone really help me, everyone else has been having this problem, for king of pool 3.01 the iso’s won’t show up, and yes file extensions are correct and there in the correct folder ive transferred them and they don’t show up

    • Norrin says:

      make sure u have em renamed to CAPITAL letters including the extension. so Wipeout.iso wont work while WIPEOUT.ISO will show up in xmb menu. also if u have to use .CSO files, simply rename EXTENSION to .ISO and they qill work. no need to convert them really to .iso format.

      THANK you very much WOLOLO and all of u who made this possible. u are really doing an awe job.

      the 3.01 EU KoP worked like a charm.

  99. REMF says:

    Finally!!!!! i got it!!!

        • hjacked says:

          both folder… then extract TNv6 files and copy it to NPUH10053_GameData0 folder, you also need to download 6.60 PSP firware, rename it to 660.PBP then save to same folder (NPUH10053_GameData0)

          I’m on 3.01, using Kop Exploit…100% working…you should have the correct REGION of the game exploit to work…or you will get C1-2858-3

  100. Bertje says:

    Prepare ur exploit savegame on ur pc, connect ur psvita and copy both folders to ur psvita.then close CM an everything.start KoP, on main menu go down to LOAD and select ur (copied) savegame. while loding the savegame hold R-trigger. u will see then the recovery menu of 6.60 tn-v. select ADVANCED and then install 6.60 files.the go back and exit recovery menu. the psp xmb will start now. once u hve installled the 6.60 files, u dont need to hold R-trigger while loading the exploit. psp xmb will start automaticly.

    Hello. I updated the FW to 3.1 and bought the game.
