How to install/run on the Vita
0) This version of HBL relies on an exploit in the Game Monster hunter Freedom Unite (Monster hunter Portable 2G).
In order to run HBL you need to own a legit copy of this game on your PS Vita.
At the time of this writing, the game is not patched but it goes without saying that HBL comes with no guarantee. Buying this game is your own decision and I take no responsibility if HBL ends up not working on your machine

1) Once you have a copy of the game, it is *strongly* recommended that you turn of all wireless connections on your PS Vita, and that you use OpenCMA on your PC instead of the regular CMA.
This is recommended because otherwise your console has a way to force you to upgrade the firmware even before you get a chance to use the exploit.
OpenCMA can be downloaded at

2) Extract this HBL archive in your CMA PSP Savedata folder. It is a folder on your PC named PSSAVEDATA/[lots of random characters here]. If you don't know where it is, check your settings in CMA

3) Connect your PS Vita to the PC through the CMA, it should give you the possibility to copy the savedata from your PC to the Vita. If not, you probably extracted it in the wrong folder.
(Note: You will also want to install some homebrews with a similar technique, read the section below)

4) To run HBL, start the Monster hunter game, select "Download" in the main menu, then select "yes" when the game asks you if you want to download. At this point, HBL should start.

How to install/run homebrews
Installing homebrews on the PSP was an easy task. On the Vita, until better solutions are provided, it's quite a pain in the ass.
The CMA will only let you copy savedata, and will not recursively browse folders.

To address this, HBL comes with a tool that can extract archives with a specific structure.

Packaging the homebrew for installation on the Vita:
1) download PSP homebrews from your favorite website, such as
2) extract the homebrew somewhere on your hard drive, and with your favorite utility, zip it again with the *store* setting (no compression), in a file that you will name "INSTALL.ZIP" (uppercase is IMPORTANT!!! CMA will refuse to copy the file otherwise)
3) take any PSP savedata (but not the one used for HBL!), and add the "" to that folder, in your PC CMA folder. so your PSP Savedata will look something like this:
in folder PSSAVEDATA/1a2b3c4def5678/UCUS12345000/ (or something like this) you will have the following files:

1) run OpenCMA on your PC, and CMA on your Vita
2) copy the previously packaged SAVEDATA (see above) with your homebrew in "INSTALL.ZIP" on your Vita
3) run HBL (how to run HBL is explained in the previous section)
4) navigate with the HBL menu to the SAVEDATA folder, then go to the folder you just downloaded (in my example, UCUS12345000), and clikc cross or circle on it
5) At this point, the HBL menu should ask you if you want to install the homebrew. select yes, and wait until HBL is done extracting your homebrew
6) The homebrew is now installed, and you can run it by going to the GAME folder, if everything went well, a new subfolder with your homebrew has been created here, and you can run the homebrew

The HBL is a work in progress. Known issues:
- Some homebrews will not work at all
- Some homebrews will randomly crash
- some homebrews will not perform as well as they would perform on a PSP Custom Firmware, or might be missing features.
- For issues regarding HBL in general, go to

Thanks go to:
- All the devs who made HBL what it is today, in particular m0skit0 and JJS
