14w ago - Following up on the PS Vita Firmware 2.60 update, today Sony announced that mandatory PS Vita System Software update v2.61 is incoming (which blocks the VHBL Arcade Darts exploit) with details available below.
15w ago - Following up on the previous PS Vita Hello World on PS Vita Firmware 2.60 demo video, today Cosimo98 (aka Principino8) has released a User Mode exploit from Backtrack and Agrippa for PS Vita Firmware 2.60 alongside details below.
17w ago - A few days ago Sony released PS Vita System Software Update v2.60, and today The Z has shared a demonstration video of a PS Vita Hello World on PlayStation Vita Firmware 2.60 with details below.
To quote: PS Vita Firmware 2.60 was released yesterday by Sony, and, unsurprisingly, this firmware patches the latest VHBL exploit from Qwikrazor that we released for game Gamocracy: Legend of Robot on firmware 2.12 a few weeks ago.
But, and this will not be a surprise to those who follow this blog regularly, solutions still exist to run (PSP) homebrew on the latest PS Vita firmware 2.60. The Z proves it to us in the video below.
In the video, what we see is not a VHBL port but a “simple” hello world. This is the same code pretty much everyone has been using since the sparta exploit back in 2009, and, in case you’re wondering, we’re talking of course of a user mode exploit running inside the PSP emulator of the Vita. With the same possibilities as usual of seeing a port of VHBL coming one day to this exploit.
Here it is, the long awaited VHBL release for Qwikrazo87′s VHBL port to the Vita Firmware 2.12!
So, before we give you the files, a bit of disclaimer: This VHBL port runs through an exploit in the game Gamocracy one: legend of Robot. We announced that game secretly to our community members over the past few weeks, and publicly a few days ago. Since then, Sony have pulled the game from their stores, and if history repeats itself, the next Vita firmware update will have a patch for the game....
