6.60 TN-A CFE PSP Firmware Now Bootable on Vita

66chsmallIf you're at all familiar with the PSP homebrew community, it's no secret that custom firmware has truly opened the scene up to a whole mess of new modded experiences.  Thanks to a new release from longtime developer Total Noob, we can now have at least a piece of that experience on the PS Vita by being able to boot 6.60 TN-A CFE through the console's PSP emulator using the new Urbanix exploit.

If you're at all familiar with the PSP homebrew community, it's no secret that custom firmware has truly opened the scene up to a whole mess of new modded experiences. Sure loaders can be pretty cool, and software like Devhook served its purpose in the early days, but sometimes it's just nice to be able to work behind an actual GUI to load some of your favorite homebrew content. Thanks to a new release from longtime developer Total Noob, we can now have at least a piece of that experience on the Vita bu being able to boot 6.60 TN-A CFE through the console's PSP emulator using the new Urbanix exploit.

Some of you who aren't as tech savy might be asking yourself "why on earth would I want to run a PSP firmware when I have this shiny new Vita interface to play around with. The answer to that question simply boils down to sheer functionality. As of right now, the current VHBL is certainly a useful loader, but there are indeed some hurdles and limitations to the content that is bootable. After all, Snes9x TYL just became a reality on the Vita a few weeks ago, so you can see how there are still some shackles to be worked out.

 

By loading 6.60 TN-A CFE on the other hand, you'll be greeted with a more complete homebrew experience. All of the wonderful stuff that you were able to do on your PSP can now be launched the exact same way on your Vita. So far users have reported very few problems getting any app they want to run. There are of course other benefits to CFW beyond homebrew as well, but I'll leave those for the clever-minded user to test out on their own. Just know that this update is about as free-roaming as anything that has been seen on the handheld. The best part is, it loads on the very latest firmware as well. For those of you lucky enough to snatch up Urbanix, this is going to be a great day for you!
