Video: VHBL New Game Exploit Running on PS Vita Firmware 1.81


82w ago - Previously we reported that VHBL was running via a Monster Hunter Freedom Unite exploit on PlayStation Vita Firmware 1.80, followed by Sony patching it in v1.81 with wololo back this weekend demonstrating a new game exploit running VHBL once again on PS Vita Firmware 1.81.

The video shows VHBL running Wagic (Magic the Gathering simulation) and gPSP (a GBA Emulator), however, once the new game exploit is publicly disclosed Sony will likely release another PS Vita Firmware update in order to resecure their handheld console once again.

Below is the video, and to quote from wololo's blog:

Latest Sony firmware 1.81 patches the Monster hunter exploit, but as usual, Sony has been kind enough to only patch that specific game, and not prevent VHBL itself from running. The video below shows VHBL running on firmware 1.81.

This is VHBL running on an undisclosed game exploit on firmware 1.81. In the video, I'm showing VHBL running Wagic, as well as Game Boy Advance's "Advanced Wars 2″ running through the GBA Emulator gPSP. Those of you with a good sense of sight might see that this is a quite old VHBL build, that's simply because I was too lazy to re-compile to the latest version, and I didn't really have to since this old build just ran out of the box.





It is no surprise that VHBL is still running, and I understand that at this point, people might be expecting more than VHBL. This is just to show that we still have access to these exploits, so those of you who updated and regret losing homebrew access see that there are still solutions being worked on. There is of course no word on a release yet, especially since the exploit is not mine. Those who want to keep homebrew on their Vita for now should stick to 1.80 and Monster Hunter.

As a reminder, anybody who owns a PSP can look for such exploits and port VHBL to them. Nowadays it requires more luck and dedication than programming skills!

I got it with the anouncement of ps3news, didn't even have the twitter or was registered to the wololo forums. Guess those ninja releases are in fact pretty good we all were waiting for the announcement.

I did buy the game, even though Im not planning on installing anything yet. Emulators are useless they are available in every platform ever made and we've played those games like forever. Now if we had even a psp loader that would be a different story, and Im only asking for one because kingdoms hearts is not available for the vita or crisis core

I have enough problems with the vita crashing and locking up I don't need some homebrew helping it.

I'm going to wait for a CFW before I start messing with it. OR at least backups playing.
