Half-Byte Loader for Patapon 2 (up to OFW 6.20)

Important announcement

I am not supporting the HBL for the Patapon exploit anymore for now, and this page will not be updated anymore. For the new HBL versions, please check the HBL main page. The information below is outdated but remains for archive reasons.

What is it?

Note: although HBL might still be useful to some people, we now recommend to 6.20 users that you use a Homebrew Enabler which will enhance your experience.

This page is for HBL on the Patapon2 exploit. This exploit works for PSPs on firmware up to 6.20 included. If you have a firmware higher than 6.20, please go back to the HBL main page and select the version that matches your firmware
This page is the official Download page for Half-Byte Loader. If you have questions please check the FAQ. For the latest news about Half Byte Loader, check the HBL Category on this blog.
Half-Byte Loader (HBL) is an open source Homebrew Loader for the Sony PSP. It allows to play fan-made games on any PSP up to firmware 6.31. HBL allows to run emulators for the Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo 64, Sega Megadrive, NES, Super NES… and many other applications.

On this page you will find my own works related to the HBL: downloads for the latest version, patched games that improve compatibility, the savegame necessary to trigger the Patapon exploit, and other cool stuff.


Latest stable release. Fast and reliable, this is the version I currently recommend. We don’t accept bug reports for this version!

Development version of the HBL. We only accept bug reports for this version

This crafted Savegame is required to run the HBL

Additional downloads

If you’re looking for good homebrews that run on your PSP, don’t look any further, those are 15 games and utilities that will keep you entertained for hundreds of hours.

How to use

Check the README.txt file in the zip file :)

More Info

HBL is a work in progress and sometimes it might fail to load your favorite homebrew. However we believe it is harmless for your PSP and I personally test my work on several PSPs before releasing it. We are also confident that this program cannot “brick” your psp and it will not void your Sony Warranty.

HBL is open source, the compiled versions I provide are a compiled version of the sources available freely here

HBL is a work in progress and we need your help. Bug reports, test reports, and code patches are welcome. I also accept donations if you want to support my releases.

    @ismetkim,maybe your psp ran out of battery,charge it for some time and then run it.AFAIK,bricked psp’s atleast give a start and then shut down.and hbl cant screw your psp.

    Wololo, I have a question for you: why you don’ t try to make vDrum runs perfectly on hbl? Please

  26. juan321 says:

    wololo what will be the news for the hbl rev 101 can you anounciate in your blog and i try to contact to the daedalus X64 team to convince them to make a version that does not use a kernel acces but they didn´t response me maybe can you put you in contact with the daedalus X64 team and maybe you can convince them to make a special version thats does not use a kernel acces if you have time pliss response me wololo

  27. zipp says:

    please help me, I want to play gba!
    but GPSP does not work?
    5.70 r100

  28. Soulboy51 says:

    Guyz dont make demands for specific emulators. Hbl will not be made compatible for specific emulators. Imagine trying to program a software and upgrading it once at a time trying to make everything perfect, whereas you can simply get as many emulators as possible and then fix a few bugs at a time.

    Dont make demands plis.

    @Zipp i think thers cfw for 5.70 go get it hacked or sumthing you’re emulators will work faster and more compatible

  29. nozepikka says:

    @zipp – here try using the one i use – http://rapidshare.com/files/405161453/Gameboy_Emulator_-_GPSP.rar.htm …. just copy the folder to ms0:/PSP/GAME/ …. for best performance i recommend setting frameskip to off and sound buffer size to ?2184? (two thousand something)… oh yeah and also use hbl r99/r100 for syscalls.. Enjoyy!!! 😀

  30. aaroncito12345 says:

    Hola, necesito un emulador de GameBoyAdvance que tenga el buffer de 16MB porque ya tengo uno de 14MB funcionando pero las roms de Pokemon pesan 16MB, encontre uno pero me dice que no se puede cargar un archivo “homehook.prx”. De antemano gracias!!!

  31. aaroncito12345 says:

    aaa la version que tengo actualmente es la “UO gpsp 3.2 user 64M test 04″ y la que probe es la “UO gpsp 3.2 test 07″ que me dice lo del archivo “homehook.prx”

  32. LUISDooMER says:

    te recomiendo el “UO gpsp 3.4 test 3 build 152″ y funciona hermosamente perfecto, es mas mejor que el 3.2, los juegos corren mucho mas fluido y te da la opcion de que el juego arranque con la bios como un GBA de Verdad!!! busca la pocion boot mode y elegi “gba Bios”

  33. aaroncito12345 says:

    listo ya encontre uno y lo subi!! espero les sirva 😉
    despues de 10 horas de busqueda!!! ya incluye las roms!!!

  34. aaroncito12345 says:

    tambien muchas gracias @LUISDooMER :D, el build que tengo es el 82 que tiene de diferente??

  35. LUISDooMER says:

    la verdad no se… debe tener mas opciones o bugfixes… mientras funcione bien , que importa no?

  36. aaroncito12345 says:

    mmm no se si este permitido publicarlo aqui pero tengo un post en cierta pagina con la mayoria de los emuladores y homebrew que funcionan en el HBL, o basta con que ponga el link del fichero y no ponga la pagina donde lo publique?? Bueno el link es:
    y si lo permiten despues pongo la pagina, los emuladores son 8 (MVSPSP, CPS 1-2, NES, SNES, GB, GBA, SegaMasterSistem).
    no hay problema si borran el comentario, solo queria ayudar a la comunidad ahorrandose la busqueda de estos emuladores que funcionan correctamente en el HBL. :)

  49. LUISDooMER says:

    y no se… ultimamente le esta poniendo mas atencion al el HGOT exploit que al patapon 2 y a nosotros los usuarios de psp 3000… pero en fin cuando el HGOT exploit alcance el rendimiento del patapon exploit, se acordara de nosotros…

    @aaroncito12345 gPSP não salva o jogo? (save data)
    Castlevania – aria of sorrow
    metroid – zero mission
    depois de salvo inicia de outro local anterior.


  53. LUISDooMER says:

    recien etuve jugando al metroid y el juego guarda bien,
    asegurate que la ocion “update backup” este en “automatic”. o sino fijate en la carpeta SAVE si los archivos estan en “solo escritura”. a mi me paso con el Kirby and The Amazing mirror.

  54. aaroncito12345 says:

    Gracias por la aclaracion LUISDooMER, asi es en las misc recomiendo que el “update backup” este en “automatico”, ya que de este modo el archivo de “Nombre_del_juego.SAV” se guardara cada vez que guarden en el juego. Tambien pueden usar los “save states” hasta el momento no me han fallado.

  55. RZ says:

    Hi wololo! What do you think about Mars team? They says that they have a 6.20 downgrader but it isnt work because hbl didnt run prx files? And how soon hbl will run it?

    Sorry for my english i am from russia =)

  56. LUISDooMER says:

    first they said that their “downgrader” wont work because it needed aprox. 79% of the battery,in times of hbl always displayed, in any homebrew, 50% of battery. Now that the battery issue is fixed (now displays the real battery percent value) they comes with this prx ***… its obvious that they are a really fake team.

  57. Jesus says:

    Wololo I Have a question for you,
    I have a PSP 3000 with OFW 6.20, I am using hbl r101 ….
    And I have used hbl since it was r96, and I can{t see any difference in the wMenu, Maybe you could change some things, or that we can select change some things from the menu….

  58. chron says:

    thanks wololo, great job!

  59. Lindo says:

    Procure saber das coisas antes de reclamar!

  60. GBSuzuki says:

    why you dont add a plugin loader in that ??
    sory the bad english it’s because I’m from Brazil

  61. Rohan says:

    @wololo plz dont close this project.Its the only thing we have on our unhackable psp’s.Just because of few Haters,dont stop this.

  62. wololo says:

    @Rohan, Blackbird: don’t worry, it’s just a spammer who was posting using my name

  63. breathoffog says:

    @wololo thank all of you guys for the wonderful work you have been doing with this project, i cant wait for the syscalls to be addressed in firmware 6.20 for the PSP 3000. Im very happy i can play metroid fusion and zero mission though. Keep up the good work and dont forget to enjoy yourselves once in a while. peace

  64. reverze says:

  69. Gorkis says:

    hola, la version de mi PSP es 6.00 si actualizo a 6.00 tendre mayor compatibilidad con los homebrews y hbl ?

  70. Gorkis says:

    hola, la version de mi PSP es 6.00 si actualizo a 6.20 tendre mayor compatibilidad con los homebrews y hbl ?

  71. LUISDooMER says:

    mira yo tenia ese firmware y actualize a 6.20 (antes de que hubiera perfect syscalls) y muchos homebrews que no funcionabann funcionan de 10.
    si tenes una psp go es recomendable que actualizes (tendras alta compatibilidad y alta velocidad en emuladores) y si tienes una 2000 o 3000 no conviene mucho (supuestamente tendrias solo compatibilidad).
    yo tengo una psp 3001 6.20 y para mi el hbl y los emuladores corren perfecto. yo te recomendaria actualizar pero eso depende de vos…

  72. Johntheripper says:

    hbl still cant load external modules.

  73. cookie says:

    everytime i try to load any of the hbl it crashes………I am currently running a psp3001 with firmware 6.20 can you help me

  74. @Cookie, download hbl rev 101 and replace all files including the h.bin. should be like this
    H.bin <– replace
    hbl/ <– replace
    hope this helps.

  75. first download the “hbl rev 101″ distribute version. and replace “h.bin” and “hbl” folder.

  76. Rohan says:

    @cookie,dont download old hbl version.they wont work.download new revs like 101.hope it helps 😀

  77. 0M9H4X says:

    make sure you have the new savegame, from this site here.
    then make sure you have the OLD US Demo of Patapon 2.
    then download rev101 or 99.

  78. reverze says:

    now all we need to do is allow psp go homebrews to be 3001 (just 3001 no other psps * evil laugh*)

  79. jomagasi says:

    101 freezes my psp or no menu is show(black screen) 99 is the best. psp 3010 6.20

  80. thank man says:

    when rev 102 or 103?

  81. yellow says:

    hey all you guys did you check on pspslim hacks total_noob has found a kernal exploit for psp 6.20 and for go so who ever upgrade to a higher firmware too bad i cant wait

  82. juan123 says:

    wololo i wait the rev 102 maybe after a long time unactualized the hbl can load external .prx and i have another question the pap fat only have 32 mbs of ram and the psp slim have 64 mbs of ram right now my question is:
    theres some homebrews that use a total manage of the ram in the fat right well i want to know if the slim does not get any problem in the memory acces when i use the hbl for play homebrews like Dx64 a homebrew that use a total memory acces? sorry for my inglsh Im from El Salvador

  83. yellow says:

    @juan123 waiting on rev 102 you can wait if you want but i dont think hbl will be continuing its project if the 6.20 th hen comes out they wont be any need for hbl respect to hbl it was a good project but i dont think any more improvements can happen in hbl its a user mode exploit i didnt even think it could have launch any emulator but they prove me wrong.

  84. wololo says:

    @juan123 : Kernel access is required to get the extra 32MB of ram. HBL can only have the first 32MB

    @yellow: HBL will probably be around for a long time, as long as sony keep coming with new firmwares. It will always be easier from now on to port the HBL to a new user exploit, to let people enjoy homebrew, than wait for Kernel exploits on new firmwares.
    As long as the HEN only works on 6.20, people will use HBL on 6.31. When the HEN is ported to 6.31, sony will patch it with a new firmware. HBL will become useful on that firmware. etc…

  85. wololo 6.20 hbl 102-3 Will ?s

  86. haitechan says:

    For some random reason rev101 doesn’t work on my PSP-3000, OFW 5.51. I’ve deleted the older rev and did a “clean” copy but no luck. rev100 works like a charm though. It’s recommended to upgrade to 6.2? I’ve been thinking in buying a game that requires it anyway but I’m short of cash right now. Anyway, many thanks wololo for your work. Greetings from Peru.

  87. LucifeL says:

    hmm… neither rev101 or rev100 seem to be woring on my psp-3006 V5.50… :(
    can you please give any advice… had been using rev97 till now and now rev99 works fine… but i wish rev101 did…

  88. wololo says:

    @haitechan: check this bug: http://code.google.com/p/valentine-hbl/issues/detail?id=333, it has a solution to your issue. we will fix it with rev 102

    @LucifeL: use the dev version, and post the resulting DBGLOG file on the forums. As said many times, we can’t help you without this file.

  89. LucifeL says:

    uwaaa….!!! soweee 😉 rev 101 working fine after i reinstalled it along with the save game exploit… i wanted to ask … since there seems to be a HEN(TotalNoob) in development for V6.20… and my current firmware is v5.50… should i upgrade it to 6.20 as it is really tempting with all the compatible emulators and stuff, or shuld people in my position wait for more confirmed results?

  90. wololo says:

    LucifeL: as long as nothing’s released, don’t upgrade, I think

  91. LucifeL says:

    thanks a lot wololo i really appreciate it

  92. Zhe says:

    contact : Total_Noob

  93. brdzoman says:

    what the holdup there haven’t been new revision for about two months now come-one hbl we need you

  94. wololo says:

    @brdzoman: submit a patch with a few bugs fixes, I’ll add it to the svn :)

    Also, the last revision of HBL was 3 weeks ago, not 2 months ago. And in the meantime, in case you haven’t noticed, I also released a major revision of Wagic. So, stay cool, HBL is not my only project, and the two only officially active devs for now are JJS and myself. So, unless you’re a coder and can help with your share of the work, just wait patiently 😉

  95. Rohan says:

    Why no new hbl rev :(

  96. LUISDooMER says:

    Here is the Total_Noob´s Blog :)
    He says that he´ll keep updating it 😉

  97. wololo says:

    @Rohan: my answer just above your post, can’t you read before you ask?

  98. Rohan says:

    @wololo: lol sorry,i didnt see it.

  99. ftostymarvelous says:

    Thanks wololo. I’m a total noob and this is my first week of owning a psp. Thing is I’m in ofw 5.55 and when I tried to download patapon2 I noticed it required 6.XX. Does this mean I need to upgrade my fw? Thanks.

  100. haiz says:

    i loaded the latest HBL onto my psp 3006 6.20 ofw, turn on patapon, pressed r, but my screen hangs for 10 sec or so and OFFS with a minor tick sound. HELP MEEEEE

  101. Cienki says:

    And ? Something new?

  102. brdzoman says:

    still nothing new anyway i started learning some programming language how can i make my own psp homebrew?

  103. megamjm says:

    dear wololo: i have a problem (i think all we have the same). In emulators like neo-geo or cps1, when you try to save a game, you have to push “select+start” to acces de emu menu to do your save, and, like all we know, “select+start” returns to hbl menu OR xmb and this is “pata, pata, pata, pon” again. My question is: is any way to fix it? maybe changing the metod to exit the emu to the hbl menu? if i wrong with this, please tell me the best method to work with my savestates in those emulators. Thanks again by your great work! Thousands of people like me are greatfully and we can use uor psp’s for something else like a decorate thing. Thank againg man.!

  104. Jerome Ng says:

    Dear Wololo, I think I’m currently having a problem loading HBL rev. 101, for some reason, It worked on my PSP while it was on rev. 100, my PSP is a PSP 3000 at the firmware ver. of 5.51 . I tried to install a clean copy of it like three times and it still doesn’t work, when I press the “R” button, the screen goes black and goes to the XMB. Why is this happening?

  105. Jerome Ng says:

    Dear Wololo, forget about what I just said up there ^, I read the comments and found my solution, thanks though.

  106. reverze says:

    @ftostymarvelous no you don’t just find the right rev (or use the lowest one)

  107. Roberto1 says:

    @wololo what web host do you use.Is it webs and could you give me a 64bit psp b type downlaod all the other sites are nonsense

  108. james1552 says:

    I’m having the exact same problem, the other revs work fine but 101 works maybe like 1/5 times I try to start it, is this normal?

  109. wololo says:

    @Jerome Ng, james1552: this is a known bug. The fix is easy and doesn’t require any dev skill:


  110. clockdryve says:

    @ftostymarvelous , yea…I’m pretty sure you need to update to 6.20 (at least 6.10) because Patapon2 (I’m thinking) runs in the higher version software (don’t go to 6.30 or 6.31) YET. Try the DEMO straight out without the exploit (see if you can play the game–remove the gamesave to try)….if it works on your 5.xx version then no update is needed. If update required….Google the “Sony OFW 6.20 Firmware” and put the update in the GAME folder….then run it.

  111. juan321 says:

    when you will publish the rev 102 i really want to see what are the news

  112. nozepikka says:

    @juan321 – i think wololo might stop developing hbl cuz 6.20tn is coming out and it’ll provide 90% homebrew compatability… mixed feelings…

  113. juan321 says:

    i hope he dont stop this project becouse this was the first homebrew loader that work on the ofw 6.20 and that will never change

  114. Lipe-Kun says:


    The Rev.101(DEV or not) doesn’t work on my PSP-3001, with the OFW6.20… Everytime I press the Rtrigger, the PSP restarts and back to the main screen…

    Hi,Wololo,can you tell me about how to set the wallpaper of hatsune miku on the desktop?

  119. wololo says:

    Funny that you mention Hatsune Miku, I learned about this character just today o.O
    Anyways, to set a wallpaper in HBL (wMenu), just copy your jpeg image in the hbl/menu/res folder . The image has to be 480×272

  120. brdzoman says:

    hey that’s piracy. by the way wololo i have question is hbl canceled? there hasn’t been any updates for about mount now i think its canceled because of HEN is that true?

  133. pspfanboy123 says:

    we need a new hbl please

  134. hblfangirl12345 says:

    oh yeah when we get hen does it have the iso loader

  135. Lewisterjs says:

    ISO Loaders aren’t necessarily piracy.
    Plus An Update To The Page/Project Will Be Made Once Wololo Is Ready

  136. MastarCheef says:

    Well, I think I can survive with HBL 101, Until Christmas, This will probably be the best digital present anyone could ask for!

  137. Lewisterjs says:

    Surviving on HBL101 May not be necessary,
    Admittedly HBL is amazing and has bridged the gap awesomely, soon enough its uses for OFW below or equal to 6.20 may come to an end when the eventual release of the Hen occurs.

  138. Jorge says:

    Thank You for make my PSP the best system ever…can some body help me…..i wonder if exist some way to copy UMD to my memory using the HBL on PSP 3001 whit 6.20.

  140. shin says:

    pls create iso loader for psp3000 ofw6.20 . don’t cancel it . i’ll wait before christmas before i smashed my psp .

  141. Seurot says:

    @shin – With that kind of attitude, I don’t recommend waiting until Christmas to do something childish like smashing your PSP. Just do it now.

    And thanks for HBL — It is amazing =P

  142. shin says:

    @seurot – hahaha! . where u download games for hbl? i don’t have UMD . i can’t play anything . psp3000 with ofw 6.20 makes me crazy

    good news guys. i have tested deadalus with a few games. the games i tested were guided by the daedalus compatibility page. i have found the following work on a psp 3k ofw 6.2 patapon

    mario kart
    tony hawks 1 and 2
    star soldeier vanishing earth
    quest 64

    wololo i think the entire homebrew community should converge on making the n64 emulator work properly. thats because i think it is the only homebrew worthy of the power of the psp

  162. bitch says:


    which daedalus did you use?

  163. stef says:

  170. JJJJ says:

    OK SO I HAVE A BRAND NEW psp go i got the hbl in my system folder and the save file in my save data folder. when i click on your save it says its corrupted

  171. clockdryve says:

    SOMEBODY help “shin” before he mistakes and updates to 6.31 (bad thing) Show him he can get the FREE “Patapon” DEMO and install the HBL with exploit…..tell him where he needs to put these. AND a few emulators for him. Remember when you needed help?? We all need to get along :) If it wasn’t for wololo and total-noob we would ALL be looking at our PSP’s and saying “what a money pit”!! ***………….

  172. clockdryve says:

    @JJJJ, depends on what “operating system” you have….more than likely it is 6.10 or higher. If it is less than and UP TO 6.20 you also need to install the Patapon2 DEMO (free) from internet download and put this into your GAME folder that is under PSP. If you have 6.30 or 6.31 you need to BUY the Hot Shots Golf Open Tee for PSN (either through media Go or by wifi connection on PSP Go) this game is $10 or you can get Hot Shots Golf Open Tee-2 for $29.99 (they say is better….but don’t know if that matters now with the possible HEN coming out)….but since we are ONLY give “dim” information on the subject—-you be the judge. Anyway, after you have one of these 3 games (depends on your PSP version of software), then you can START the game and CONTINUE option and this will unlock HBL. No other way…………

  173. clockdryve says:

    @stef , here you go @http://www.megaupload.com/?d=W84793DK uploaded yesterday. Unzip and put the unopened folder into your GAME folder under PSP. Inside is a ROM folder for you to use. Even works on the higher versions up to R109 must use settings mentioned here…. http://wololo.net/wagic/hbl/ on page 51….it is the 11th post up from the bottom of page. it runs pretty good with these settings.

  174. clockdryve says:

    Ooops, http://www.megaupload.com/?d=W84793DK (link for the snes emulator) *wish we could EDIT

  175. michi says:

    pls , more information about 6.20tn .

  176. juan321 says:

    no the hbl rev 109 is alredy launched
    i posted the link but they erased it

  177. a says:

    la version hbl 109 no carga el spider

  178. nightcraver says:

    @ stef
    I think most probably you have not placed the emulator files correctly in psp/game/ . make sure the eboot file is not in any of the emulator folders (that is ‘resources’, ‘save states’, ‘roms’ etc.) i.e. that it stands alone in the main folder of the emulator. snes9x by tyler and laxer3a which is hosted by wololo here:

    is probably the best psp emulator ever based on the sheer versatility and options available. i think this emulator should be something of a gold standard for other psp emulator developers to follow, not just for snes but for every other console

    since about R95 snes emulation has been perfect on hbl. thus the only reason for failure must be that you have not installed the files correctly or you have not installed the correct files.

    hope this helps

    PSP: 3000
    OFW 6.20
    Revision 109
    Latest Patapon Save 11/14

    I start up patapon and go through the standard procedure, one I press the r trigger, the r109 screen pops up and does its thing but then its just a black screen, it doesn’t continue to the HBL. The psp isn’t frozen because it allows me to use the PS button menu. It takes about several trys before it goes to the HBL but even then if I stay at the HBL menu for too long it freezes there, and exiting emulators freezes and restarts when before it went to HBL menu.

    I have re-installed as well but to no avail :(

    Is this normal?

    how to upgrade ur psp form 5.70 to 6.20

    • clockdryve says:

      Get your download from here (no higher than 6.20) http://www.mediafire.com/?6e2w8kz473pbk Download to desktop or somewhere that you remember. Now unzip the file into (or put into) a folder you call UPDATE. Now connect your PSP with DATA cable and put this UPDATE folder into your GAME folder that is inside the PSP folder (if there is already one in there…delete the old one). Now disconnect PSP from computer and start the PSP. Look over to GAME icon and you will see the update. You must have a full battery charge (over 85 percent) or be plugged into power cord. Read directions for download and accept….you CANNOT turn off the PSP or remove power cable once you start or you will BRICK the PSP. Bricks are BAD….means DEATH to most game systems. The Brick can happen while running ANY update….even from a UMD so always be carefull during an update. Just START it and set the PSP down untill finished. **Inside your PSP (under battery), what numbers does it say… 1001 or 2001 or 3001 ?? Just wondering??
