9w ago - Following up on the previous hint, this weekend the Apache Overkill (PSP Mini) user mode exploit by TomTomdu80 for PS Vita Firmware 2.06 has been officially unveiled alongside a video demo below.
To quote: In this Video you can see a PS Vita with the Firmware 2.06, which runs the Vita Half Byte Loader via the Exploit game Apache Overkill. Thank you very much TomTomdu80 for this user mode exploit
This port of the Half Byte Loader for the PS Vita is capable of running Homebrews at the PS Vita Firmware 2.06 and older. This CAN NOT run ISO or CSO games. Plugins (PRX) wont work either! Just usermode Homebrews!
From Wololo: Disclaimer: I haven’t tested this VHBL version myself. People who tested it in EU/US version have told me this VHBL compatibility is below average, but compatibility may increase in future releases. As usual, the choice is yours.
Another long wait is over, this is the public announce for the game exploit that will let people run TomTomDu80′s port of VHBL on Vita firmware 2.06. Once again,...

35w 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...
35w ago - Following up on his PS3 SCETool update and PS3 Dump_Rootkey code, today Sony PlayStation 3 hacker Naehrwert has posted some details on exploiting the PlayStation 3 lv2_kernel and has made available a sample 3.41 implementation below.
To quote from his blog: Exploiting (?) lv2
A long while ago KaKaRoTo pointed me to a stack overflow he found while reversing lv2_kernel. But there are two problems:
1. The vulnerability is in a protected syscall (the SELF calling it got to have the 0x40... control flags set). So you’d first need to find a suitable usermode exploit (don’t ask us), that gives you code execution with the right privileges.
2. The payload data is copied to lv2 heap first and the function will do a free call on it before the payload has any chance to get executed. This might not sound like a problem but it looks like lv2′s heap implementation will overwrite the free’ed space with 0xABADCAFE and thus destroy the payload.
Here (pastie.org/4755699) is my sample implementation for 3.41 lv2_kernel...
44w ago - Following up on his previous update, this weekend PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has announced that a new PS Vita exploit and VHBL port in the works by Xerpi.
To quote from his blog: "Developer xerpi twitted a few days ago that he has a new user mode exploit available, and that he managed to port VHBL to it fairly easily (it took only 10 minutes to port VHBL according to what he told me).
"VHBL working on my new exploit pic.twitter.com/5PeV6Hi2"
I believe for now this exploit with remain under wraps since we are already working on a release with Neur0n, but this is of course up to xerpi.
In the meantime, enjoy a few screenshots!"
Finally, below is yet another exploit from Acid_Snake with details as follows:
Fate6 confirmed my VHBL port working on PS Vita 1.69.1 and the game being on Vita US PSN
fate6 wrote: well then yes it does work on the Vita on 1.69.1 ^__^
I have a european account and this game is not on european PSN, so I couldn't test it on my Vita. Thanks fate6 For...
