Video: PS Vita Half Byte Loader for Firmware 2.05 by Tomtomdu80 Demo

Sponsored Links
86w ago - Following up on his previous VHBL exploit and Sony's PS Vita Firmware Update v2.05, Tomtomdu80 has now made available a demo video spotlighting a PS Vita Half Byte Loader for Firmware 2.05 below.

To quote: We announced last week that developer Tomtomdu80 got VHBL to run with a new user mode exploit. A few days ago, The Z published a video showing Tomtomdu80′s exploit running VHBL perfectly on PS Vita's latest firmware 2.05.

Firmware 2.05 patches both the user and kernel exploits used with UNO to run CEF and ARK. It's also been confirmed that the latest Sony firmware patches several kernel exploits that were all relying on the same pattern (security issues related to the kermit wlan implementation). Technically, the end user is back to square one if they are on firmware 2.05.

Thankfully, there are still lots of usermode exploits available in many psp games, and some of them can be used to port, if not a psp custom firmware (a kernel exploit would be required for that), at least VHBL.

VHBL is a Homebrew loader for the Vita running in the psp emulator. It offers overall less compatibility than a psp custom firmware, but is also less prone to flame wars between hackers and gamers, as it doesn't technically let people play pirated psp or vita games.

In the video below, The Z showcases Tomtomdu80′s port of VHBL running on a 2.05 PS Vita. The video shows the PS Vita running PSP filer (a file explorer / file manager) and Pokemon running on the GBA emulator gPSP.

Tomtomdu80 announced he would be releasing his port of VHBL when Sony releases a "meaningful" update, which might or might not be 2.05. We will of course keep you updated, by now you probably know how these exploits get released

just for all of you... the exploit is gone... you can't buy it anymore....

here's some lil news... the dev total_noob is looking for smb to help him port the xmb to the vita psp emulation

From Total_Noob (via pspking.de/forum/showthread.php?tid=71292&pid=795106#pid795106):

XMB on PSVita

Hey community,

I've just ported the PSP XMB to the PSVita.

It is still work in progress, only half of the functions are working, because there are too many complications. I'll continue further, because school will start soon. If you're a skilled developer (knowing reverse engineering and basics about the VSH) and you want to contribute on this project, so write me a message. But I'll only answer if you're a trusted developer!

Didn't grab the hack this time on purpose - if you want psp isos so badly - buy second hand psp and enjoy all the world of psp homebrew & backups.

I was just tired to wait & buy every new game for the every firmware the vita has - sony has made a very smart move with their PS+ deals
