Video: New PSP Exploit Surfaces, PS Vita VHBL Port Incoming?


Sponsored Links
124w ago - Following up on his PS Vita VHBL Motorstorm Arctic Edge hack from last week, today PlayStation Vita developer wololo has announced news of a new PSP exploit discovered by Xerpi with a demo video below!

To quote: I honestly stopped counting how many PSP "hello world" exploits in PSP games have been announced over the past months, but these exploits are getting a second life now that they symbolize a possibility for homebrews on the PS Vita.

This time it's scener Xerpi who found an exploit, which I haven't confirmed yet, but I should be able to give it a try sometimes this week. Will this lead to a VHBL port/release? First we need to make sure this game is actually available for the Vita. After that, only time will tell, but I'll do my best to help





Congrats, xerpi!

Note: Let me emphasize that I am aware of several psp game exploits being available, and releasing VHBL for them or not is basically up to their authors. I'm of course offering my help to port VHBL (although my free time is limited.

Porting VHBL is relatively easy, but even with some experience, from the exploit to the VHBL port it can easily take 30 hours, if you include debugging. That's not mentioning that each game usually comes in several versions.)

Another note: you might think, seeing all these videos of exploits, that finding exploits in psp games has become super easy. This is not entirely true. I am sure that my tutorials have made these things easier, but going from a crash to a hello world still requires lots of patience and dedication.

^^ at least one more PSP game exploit has been found which could potentially lead to another half-byte loader port and an opportunity for homebrew for those who missed Motorstorm: Arctic Edge.

- HBL is exploit for PSP
- it uses gamesave data overflow to write RAM (and load executables from memory stick)
- hopefully it can be used in PS Vita's PSP emulator (thus the name "VHBL")
- 1st VHBL is released early this month using Motorstorm Arctic Edge PSP game (downloadable from PSN)
- Motorstorm AE not available anymore @ PSN (?), therefore new Vitas user (like me) must wait for next exploitable game
- VHBL can't load ISO/backup and only access User mode in PSP emulator within Vita. only emulators/homebrews.

And now what? will sony remove psp emulator?

i don't think so... psvita is too young to start removing backwards compatibility like they did with ps3!
