PS Vita Half Byte Loader (HBL) Progress Update By Wololo


Sponsored Links
154w ago - Following up on his previous update, PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has shared a progress update on the PS Vita Half Byte Loader (HBL).

Additionally, Nabnab has also made available a video showcasing some hidden PS Vita information for those interested!

To quote: A quick report: I'm making some progress on porting HBL to the Vita. Although I'm sad to say that I can't get syscall estimation to work, I got some major homebrews such as Doom to run already, so overall I think it's in an acceptable shape.

Because it is roughly stable now, today I focused on porting HBL to the EU version of the exploited game (I was working - obviously - on the Japanese version of the game so far). This went smoothly and I can confirm HBL runs fine on the EU version of the game, although of course I could only test on a PSP, not on a Vita.

I used the opportunity to refresh my two guides, how to [Register or Login to view links] and how to [Register or Login to view links]. The guides are now simplified, and the binary loader tutorial now has download links to the tools used in the examples.

Writing the first "usable" version of HBL for the patapon exploit took several developers and about 4 months. Thanks to the portability of HBL, bringing it to Teck4′s exploit took me only a few days. Adapting that to the EU version took a couple hours (including porting the exploit itself), so I am confident for the US version.

The game cartridges are kind of small, hopefully it will be able to hold enough data so we won't be need 3 cartridges for 1 game.

Currently working on checking where the updates are coming from - it seems like Sony is doing what it can to not expose the update link. Kind of odd, eh?
