    This just came in (I caught this on Twitter (LOL!));
    Half Byte Loader (BETA/SVN) Compiled Just For You
    So, in short, [​IMG] this allows you to run homebrew on all PSPs on all 6.20 OFWs by using a hacked save data of Patapon 2 (Pata Pata Pata Pon).
    But, [​IMG] this is a small eLoader. This will only run you to aloow small homebrew, like PSP Trivia, Simpleturn, PSPuzzle, etc. Keep it at that.

    Hm... I could've sworn that there were PSP emoticons...

    It'll never be used to flash a CFW. Go find something less expensive to break.

    ChickHEN started off a just running Homebrew, presumably it started at this small stage too!!
    Keep your hair on and wait.

    Technically, CFW is considered Homebrew, right? I mean, you have to activate ChickHEN first before you activate GEN... so... who knows! Mebbe there might be CFW for this firmware soon!

    Correct. The 5.03 partial CFWs were made possible by the ability to load software in user mode, where they then could use a privilege escalation attack to gain root access to the device and make it load the CFW. So this is the first step to a CFW.

    Ok, im really confused, the files i downloaded dont contain an EBOOT, it comes wit eloader folder, SDK folder, and .svn folder, i just copied all of the folders to my memory stick, but the Patapon demo still only wants to load the exploit save, could someone break this all down for me?

    You can run ISOs using Gen from ChickGen. Hopefully they make something like that for the Go so you can run CFW without flashing.

    Anyways, since there are ms0 issues I imagine PSP Filer won't work [​IMG]

    Ya, then maybe I can use it for more than music, internet, and video.

    Until you can run games that aren't from the PS store the PSP Go is just a media center and not a gaming device.

    What exactly do you want this for anyway? There's hardly any point in using it since it's so limited at the moment?

    Well, when they eventually get around to updating it, all i hav to do is update thearchive, and the HBL archive? I have the eLoader, .svn, and SDK folders in the root of my memory stick and that doesnt work, I also tried putting the source folder in the root, which just contains the folders above, what exactly is the archive? Sorry, Im still really new to this

    The topic title is misleading. It's not pre-compiled so you'll need to do it yourself, which i'm guessing you won't be able to.

    You'd gain nothing even if you could compile it anyway since it's so limited, so it's best just to put this to one side as an interesting development.
