    Default [Tutorial] Loading ISO's, CSO's straight from XMB on 6.20/6.31/6.35/6.36 HEN

    Hello and welcome everyone.
    Today, it's time for more easier ISO loading. Prometheus iso loader allows you to load Iso's, but hey, who doesn't want straight ISO's from XMB?
    OpenIdea iso loader allowed that, but it worked on 6.20 TN only and didn't work on other hens for next fw's. Furthermore, it's compatiibility was a little low compared to Prometheus.

    So, Takka released his amazing ISO tool v1.960
    It allows straight running of ISO's from XMB instead of using Prometheus ISO loader. It uses a combination of Prometheus ISO loader + some other stuff to achieve that
    Requirements :
    Your ISO/CSO in ISO folder
    A PSP on FW 6.20/6.31/6.35/6.36 with the corresponding hen running
    6.20 Hen ( Download, extract, copy TN_HEN folder to PSP/GAME on your memory stick or PSP Go internal storage, run from Game - Memory stick on your PSP )
    6.31 Hen
    6.35 Hen
    6.36 Hen
    For other hens, download, extract, copy EBOOT.PBP resulted from extraction to PSP/GAME/HEN on your memory stick or PSP go internal storage ( if you don't have a "HEN" folder then create one ), Run it from Game - Memory stick.
    Now as for steps for Iso tool
    1-Download ISO Tool
    2-Extract it
    3-Open the PSP folder results from extraction, then open Game folder, then copy iso_tool to PSP/GAME folder on memory stick or internal storage of PSP Go
    4-On your PSP, run iso tool from game - memory stick
    Note : If you have PSP Go, once you run iso tool, press select so that it sees the iso's on internal storage.
    Patching process : carry out this only if the game is 5.55+ and needs to be patched : ( Note steps from 4 to the end might not be available for some games because they don't require them, if so, just skip that )
    1)Press X on the game
    2)Click Eboot decrypt.
    If you already have a backup of the ISO, say no to backup
    3)Click yes in version patch then press start
    4)Click on your game again ,click patch prometheus
    5)Find prometheus/4 option and click start
    6)Proceed with the tutoiral.
    5-Scroll to the game you want to convert, press X, then go to make XMB-Icon option and press X
    6-Once it's done, try running the game from your XMB
    Troubleshooting : Cso's don't work.
    Answer : You need to try m33 driver
    1-Download PSARdumper and 5.00 OFW
    2-Extract them
    3-Copy EBOOT.PBP of 5.00 OFW to root of your memory stick.
    4-Copy new_psardumper to PSP/GAME on your PSP.
    5-Run psardumper
    6-Press square and wait for it to be done
    7-Open f0 folder on root of memory stick or internal storage.
    8-Open kd folder
    9-Copy isofs.prx to PSP/GAME/iso_tool/Data/PIL_v2
    10-Rename the copied file to isofs_500.prx
    11-Before running the game, hold the left shoulder button till it boots to use the M33 Driver.
    Note : You can now delete psardumper, F0 folder and 5.00 OFW.

    Well, that's all for now. I hope this tutorial is of help to you

    Not all games work with this method unfortunately - can anyone confirm whether previously patched ISOs have more or less compatibility with this method?

    Furthermore how do we use this version of isotool to patch ISOs to work with 6.20 TN if we can.

    but this method creates two duplicate icons in the XMB, one works, one does not. I suppose there's no way around that?

    I tried to rip Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team and GTA Chinatown Wars with Iso Tool but once they reach around 6 minutes remaining I get an error in Japanese, any ideas?

    Thanks for the tutorial btw.

    Seems like an obvious question but, do you have enough space on the memory stick?

    EDIT:
    After some looking around. I found out you need about 1GB free space for GTA China Town Wars, and about 1.2GB for DBZ Tenkaichi Tag Team

    A few questions for that, what model is your PSP and how are you ripping it? As in, are you converting directly to ISO or CSO?

    I have ripped multiple games with the PSP 1001 running 6.35 PRO HEN and another running 5.50 GEN. So if your are using a 1k, I'd be stumped.

    I haven't heard any problems about the 2k series, but I'm rather new to PSP-hack show.

    If you are running a PSP 3k series, those have had known issues with ripping ISOs with ISO Tool.

    This is just a possibility, but have you tried backing up your mem stick and then formating it. I may not be correct about this, but I have heard of people fixing problems in this way.
