    Note: Make a CMA backup of your Basegame first!

    Step 1: Download and copy the savegame

    1) Download the appropriate archive if you haven't already and extract it.

    2) The first thing to do is to download the 660.PBP and place it in the TNV savegame!

    tnv save

    3) Next up move the whole TNV folder to Documents/PSAVEDATA/xxxxxxxxxxx/ ..


    ..and transfer the savegame to the Vita via your favourite CMA program.


    Step 2: Installing the PBOOT.PBP file

    Addon: If you are running TN-V for 3.50+ you might take a look at Qwikrazor's game2vhbl plugin to list Homebrew from PSP/VHBL/ in the XMB!

    FAQ & Troubleshooting

    I'm on Firmware 3.5X and can't write Homebrews to the GAME folder?!

    You will need to use ONEMenu to launch your Homebrews from somewhere else.

    My Bubble didn't change!?

    It can be everything. Start over again.

    Can I install a different Menu?

    Nope. But you can launch any menu of your choice manually.

    My e-mail shows a [?] instead of the photo symbol?!

    Try resetting the Vita's mail account or resend the mail.
