60w ago - Following up on the PS Vita HBL and Doom releases, PlayStation Vita developer wololo reports that Drakon has made available a Lamecraft (Minecraft Clone) PSP homebrew port that runs on PS Vita with a demonstration video below.
To quote: Christmas is really early this year, as Drakon, creator of the famous PSP homebrew Lamecraft, just posted an update of his game to make it compatible with the Vita.
Of course this requires you to run VHBL, but since we just released a new version of our homebrew loading tool, hopefully you are one of those who can enjoy it.
Check this video running the game on the Vita Screen:
Finally, from Drakon: I made small update to LameCraft – now it’s working on PS Vita ( thanks Wololo for info ). I have also fixed some strange bugs with texture packs.
VHBL is needed to run Lamecraft on the PS Vita, and can be downloaded here.

Since reporting on his last flaw uncovered, PlayStation Vita hacker SKFU has found a few new vulnerabilities in Sony's PS Vita handheld gaming system.
To quote via http://wololo.net/wagic/2012/01/20/vita-hack-skfu-finds-new-vulnerabilities/#more-3890: Few hours ago, developer SKFU (known for his work on the PS3, but also recently for some investigations on the Vita security) posted a screenshot of his Vita showing some HTML in what is supposed to usually show official messages from Sony’s updates or packages.
Knowing SKFU's passion for everything network-related, I'm assuming he's doing some tests using some local DNS changes... or maybe he managed to put some of his own files in an official package? That would be exciting.
In previous tweets this week, he mentioned he found 2 potentially usable vulnerabilities on the Vita
VITA is back to life, since last tweet found 2 new possibile vulnerabilities. If it runs good, news in blog this evening!
That was, however, 2 days ago, and his blog wasn’t updated since then, so I’m assuming he ran into a few issues. (the “back to life” comment refers to the official 1.52 firmware which bricked his Vita…or appeared to do so... which turned out to be that the battery had to charge for almost 24 hours before the Vita accepting to turn on, for some reason)
Obviously lots of this experimentation will probably not lead to anything, but for now, every bit on info on the internals of the Vita is interesting. Let’s keep digging
