I am not supporting the HBL for the Sukkiri 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 The information below is outdated but remains for archive reasons.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?
This page is for HBL on the Sukkiri Demo. This exploit works for PSPs on firmware up to 6.35 included, and requires the demo of the game Minna no sukkiri which can be downloaded here.
If you have a firmware 6.36 or lower, we suggest that you give a try to a Homebrew Enabler which will enhance your experience. Some versions of the Hen don’t require HBL to run, although some users might still need to use HBL in some cases.
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 6.35. 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 downloads for the latest version, patched games that improve compatibility, the savegames necessary to trigger the exploit, and other cool stuff. New releases are announced on my blog here

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
