Video: PS Vita Hello World on 1.67 Demo, VHBL Update Incoming


Sponsored Links
119w ago - Following up on Sony's PS Vita Firmware Update v1.67, this weekend PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has announced news of a new Hello World on PS Vita 1.67 alongside details of a VHBL update with a demonstration video below.

To quote: Hope you didn’t wait too long since our last VHBL release a bit more than 2 weeks ago… This is a new PSP user mode exploit by thecobra (also discovered a while ago by WosRet), which I confirmed runs on a PS Vita with Firmware 1.67. Unlike Motorstorm and Everybody’s Tennis, this game is available in the US store as well as some other countries (details to come). Check the video and details below.

Thecobra already ported VHBL to this exploit, and we already have something running, that just needs a few tweaks here and there before being released. So far I didn’t see anything that would prevent HBL from running on Vita 1.67, but that will need to be fully confirmed in the days to come.

The name of the exploited game is obviously kept a secret until the public announcement, and if you don’t want to miss the release, remember that history repeats itself. Sony will most likely remove the game within hours following the announcement, so stay tuned.




Congrats and thanks to thecobra!

Update: Below is another brief video update (via wololo.net/wagic/2012/04/17/vhbl-on-vita-1-67-tweaking-in-progress/) to quote:

Hey everyone, quickly showcasing the work in progress for VHBL’s port to thecobra’s exploit. To be honest, thecobra’s really done most of the work here, and I merely tweaked it to clean up the code, before compiling and giving it a try.

On the video below, I’m playing doom (again? I should be a bit more creative...) on PS Vita firmware 1.67.





The release should happen soon, although please keep in mind that I also have a real life to deal with in addition to this release, so please be patient while we’re getting ready.

Same. It would've been cool to see more people taking advantage of the PS3 hardware for emulators though.

My Vita is sitting on 1.66 until I need to update for a game, which probably won't happen for a while.

pretty much a waste of money buying these psp games... when within a few weeks or less it will be patched with a fw update.

i suppose if u like playin some emus for a small amount of time before sony patches it it's kinda worth it, but not really.

Many PS3 devs release a lot of things even though they get nothing back. But I have always felt as if the PSP/Vita scene was much better than the PS3 scene.
