    Default CFW Folder Blocker v1.0: protect against CFW-messing UMDs

    http://pspupdates.qj.net/CFW-Folder-.../49/aid/128658

    Homebrew developer Torch has released CFW Folder Blocker v1.0, a useful little plugin that hides CFW folders while in game mode.

    Torch made the program to protect against new UMDs that detect and delete certain files, messing up your custom firmware.

    Here are the release notes:

    Some new UMDs are detecting files in the ms0:/seplugins and ms0:/iso folders and causing problems, even deleting files from these folders.



    This plugin will hide these folders in GAME mode so they can't be accessed.



    To install, copy cfwblock.prx to ms0:/seplugins and make an entry in game.txt e.g. ms0:/seplugins/cfwblock.txt 1

    Download: CFW Folder Blocker v1.0

    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    DJ_Max_Black_Square_KOR_PSP-iND can delete game saves from DJ_Max_Portable_Emotional_Sense_Clazziquai_Edition_KOR_READNFO_PSP-2CH if it finds you are running CFW.

    DJ Max Fever will fail to load also if it locates CFW after a series of checks and speed tests.

    I've not seen any games that will mess up the CFW so stick with ISO's and Patches

    So if you would like to run these games as a UMD this is a good app.

    It normally means that you need to wait a couple of days after the release date for a patch and run it as a ISO ..... all of the above games i mention have a patch that can bypass the checks .

    It would be bad if they could delete or replace files from Flash0 after detecting CFW but i don't think that is possible because UMD's run in user mode.

    So make a backup of your MS especially if you use a lot of plugins , Then if they get deleted it is a simple copy and paste .
