To quote: Developer Total_Noob has released TN-C eCFW with a huge list of improvements including compatibility for the Motorstorm and Super Collapse exploits. TN-C has also now become open source. Keep reading!
The long awaited and highly anticipated update to TNmenu by developer Total_Noob for all exploits is finally here, bringing a substantial update to just about everything. With TN-C Total_Noob has added compatibility for those still holding out on the Motorstorm and Super Collapse 3 exploits; something he was testing a while back.
TN has also made this release open source which means other developers will be able to build and add new features to TN-C. With this release Total_Noob also released a statement that this will be most likely his last release. It’s very sad news; we can only say thanks and best wishes in your future endeavors.
“As promised, here is the new open sourced TN-C. This is probably my last release, because my priority is still familiy, friends and school If you continue my project, please keep it open source and call it ‘TN’ Best wishes.
~Andy, aka Total_Noob”
The release is packed with tons of bug fixes, fixes for compatibility issues and has an entirely new look. TN listened to users and fixed everything, making it the best TN release thus far. You can find a list of the full release and new features below including a tutorial on installing ISO/CSO and homebrew by TN. The download links can be found at the bottom with a preview of it. Enjoy!

CEF TN got open sourced by GPLv3. I am tired of programming and give you guys the job continue it. Please respect the license, make it open source. It also contains ‘popcorn’ which is a beta module for psx support. Perhaps a master can finish it with sounds.

I think, after so much 24/7 patrol for these exploits, I'm willing to give up them in favor of new 2.00 firmware and a bunch free vita PS+ games: Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, Chronovolt (only for EU), FFT: War of lions (US only), Wipeout 2048 (US only) - and a dozen of 20% discounts. Not to mentioan alot of free PS+ games for PS3.
Sony made a smart move, combating piracy with awesome offers. I'll stick with my psp once again for psp backups and homebrew. Although I loved using vita for it, I must admit
I still have 5 games to play emulated on vita and then I will decide what to do. They could have been more if only Half-minute Hero 2, Trails in the Sky 2 and 3, Grand Knights History, FF Type-0, Persona 2 EP and others would have been released.
(P2EP could still happen but I don't have so much confidence in Atlus anymore... they used to bring lots of games every year but now they just focus on very few projects).
Sadly - have most of the Vita games already so not much for me to benefit from PS+ offer ... Sony is VERY smart by offering as "free" games always those, which sels best so they have lowest loss possible on those - most of the people interrested in those games have them already anyway.
Exactly. Uncharted? Got it. And resold it after a couple of hours. Wipeout 2048? Got it. Completed the "game" (a little more than a demo...), completed the HD remake and almost completed the Fury remake (got both for free because I had already bought them for my PS3).
FFTWOTL? Got the original on PSX. I had on PSP too but I resold it. I don't like the other games in the offer...
I could update if they gave me for free something like Ragnarok Odyssey...or YS-Celceta, but it won't happen in a million years.
If tomorrow we suddenly got an only playable HD Vita version of Trails in the Sky 2 I would update in the blink of an eye. But this it's not gonna happen too..
BTW, I've never updated my Vita. I bought it used with some games and It came with 1.81 installed. So, I was wondering: are the updates stealthly forced if I got the wi-fi running or will they pop up only if I try to use the store or the PSN? That Vita ftp is very useful...
I don’t remember when we had the last PSP CFW news at Wololo’s Blog, but this one is kinda exciting!
The developer Rahim-US ported the famous PSP custom firmwares 6.60 ME-1.8 and 6.60 LME-1.8 to the 6.20 kernel of the PSP, which makes them compatible with the permanent patch.
Neur0n’s PSP CFW can now be permanently installed on every PSP that supports the 6.20 firmware, instead of only the PSP 1000 and 2000.
Same Custom Firmware, different base firmware
In general, this new 6.20 ME/LME-1.8 CFW is the same as the 6.60 ME/LME-1.8 CFW, it just got backported to the 6.20 kernel, so it can be used in combination with the permanent patch, which makes the LME CFW basically a full CFW, on any PSP model, like the ME on older PSPs.
In the past, only the PRO CFW and the TN HEN were able to use the permanent patch, since there was no ME/LME CFW for said firmware 6.20.
The permanent patch is a nice addition to the PSP, since it looks and feels the same as a full (cIPL) CFW, something that most people will know from the PSP 1000 and 2000.
The permanent patched CFWs are basically just auto-booting LCFWs, which means a brick can still be fatal and flash0 mods are NOT recommended (Unless one uses a cIPL CFW, but that is something that just exists for the PSP 1000 and 2000).
The good thing about the permanent patch is, that it can help resolve to fix semi-bricks, since it offers access to the recovery menu, which then can be used to fix flash problems or even flash a completely new firmware.
I, personally, am very happy that it is now possible to use the LME CFW on firmware 6.20, since this means it can be permanent patched, when the perma patcher for the 6.20 LME is done.
The permanent patch installer for the 6.20 LME is currently still being worked on, to guarantee that it will be a safe one, not like the first public version of the permanent patcher for TN-D HEN, which bricked a few PSPs, due to an oversight.
If you are running a higher firmware than 6.20, be sure to grab the 6.20 firmware update and the Chronoswitch Downgrader, which will enable you to install/downgrade to firmware 6.20.
Update #2: From Rahim-US, to quote: Hello eveyone, I want to present you today the new port of ner0n's (L)ME custom firmware to the lower version 6.20.. it can be used on hackable 01g and 02g as full custom firmware or on all other model supported by version 6.20 as a lite custom firmware.
