Not long ago we reported on a PSP Firmware 6.20 Patapon 2 Save Game Exploit, and today firespike8 has posted from the SVN both a binary and source alongside a demo video for the PSPgo Half Byte Loader Beta 1.0 and game pack.
Download: PSP Half Byte Loader + SRC / PSP Half Byte Loader + Game Pack
The game pack includes all games/apps compatible with PSP 3000 and PSPgo, and was tested on 6.20 Assassins Creed PSP and Gran Turismo Edition.
However, only a small amount of homebrew works, other homebrew (like emulators and LUA-powered PSP homebrew) do not work yet.
To quote: This is the half byte loader pack WITH working and maybe working games inside. It contains everything you need for running the eloader except the patapon 2 demo which I have provided a link to in the readme.
I made the instructions as simple and noob proof as possible so there will hopefully be alot less complaints/questions.
Also m0skit0 or wololo or noob81 or whoever else if you want you can distribute my pack / edit it feel free to do so, As long as you give me some credit for putting the pack together I'm happy. Cya.
P.S. Incase you don't download the pack these games/apps work with psp 3000 and pspGo 90% of the time: PSPuzzle, PSP pong, PSP snake, Psp tetris by eric, Simpleturn, Tetris Portable, Yokero, Madoko and PSPlasma.
These games refuse to work on my PSP 3000: GEMS, IDKWTFTPIC, Pymine and PSPtrivia.
Simply extract the HBL archive to your memory stick root, copy the homebrew's EBOOT.PBP (sample included) to the root, start the Patapon 2 demo as normal, then load the hacked save. It'll either load the homebrew or crash, if the latter then just retry it.
