In related PlayStation Vita news today SKFU has hinted at a what may be a native PS Vita exploit for PS Vita Firmware v2.02 confirming that he has made progress with a PS Vita developer unit.
Finally, wololo (via wololo.net/2012/12/30/happy-new-year-psp-game-uno-vulnerability-revealed-by-frostegater-port-of-cef-to-vita-2-02-incoming/) reports news of a PSP Game UNO vulnerability revealed by Frostegater, with a port of CEF to Vita 2.02 incoming.
To quote: After a long time of waiting and a weeks-long Ninja release, Frostegater's exploit is finally revealed to be in the PSP Mini game UNO. UNO joins the growing collection of PSP games with a buffer overflow vulnerability, and if our experience is to be trusted, Sony will remove it from their stores within 48hrs (although we hope the holiday season might help delaying this...), so hurry up and get it.
For those who just join us, developer Frostegater announced a few weeks ago that he would be porting Total_Noob’s CEF to Vita Firmware 2.02. CEF is a piece of software that allows users to run PSP Homebrews, plugins, and backups within the PSP emulator of the Vita. Since this is not official Sony software, it relies on flaws in some specific games in order to run. This time’s game is UNO.
But well, if you’ve been following this blog, you know what CEF does and why you want it, so if you are interested, hurry up, and get Uno now. Let me emphasize again that if you are interested, you want to buy that game now, not tomorrow, not in 2 hours, but now, as you don’t know when Sony will remove it from their stores.
The Game is available in the US, JP, and EU stores, but not in HK based on the reports I have. For those who are in a store where the game is not available, you can create an account in another country, and order a PSN code online. I will not promote any of them, but feel free to share your recommendations in the comments below.
If you do get the game, do not wait to install it on your Vita. A typical mistake is that people will buy from their PS3, download it to their PS3, and not install it to their Vita immediately. This does not work, as Sony has the possibility to remove the game from your download list, technically preventing you from easily copying it from your PS3 to your Vita.
Frostegater's files will be released on this site as well as other scene websites in a few days (in general we wait until the game is not available in the Sony stores anymore), and until then, here are a few videos from Frostegater and myself showing the exploit in action.
Kernel mode exploit by Frostegater
In this video you can see how to launch the Total_Noob eCFW via the UNO exploit. Files will be released very soon after this announcement. We wish everybody happy holidays and a good new year.
This port of the TN eCFW is capable of running Homebrews, PS1 backups, Plugins and ISO/CSO games. Better grab the game before it gets removed from the PlayStation Network store.
