5w ago - Following up on the release of PS Vita Firmware 3.00, today some video footage of a VHBL and Hello World for PS Vita FW 3.00 appeared alongside a PlayStation Vita 2.61 Firmware VHBL Exploit by Frostegater with details below.
To quote from Acid_Snake via Wololo: The game exploits patched by Vita FW 3.00, and how this will impact future VHBL/TN-V releases
You may have heard of different naughty surprises that came with firmware 3.00, and you may ask what the hell this has to do with me? you may also wonder about the future of VHBL and TN-V4, I’m gonna tap on that here, but I’m also gonna explain why I think Sony has made a huge dumb mistake.
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....
38w ago - Following up on the initial announcement and video demo, today Sony hacker Total_Noob has released the TN-V Custom Emulator Firmware (CEF) 6.60 for PS Vita handheld consoles.
Below are the details, to quote: The highly anticipated Custom Emulator Firmware TN-V from Total_Noob is finally here!
TN-V brings the XMB experience to the Vita and has been in development for over half a year, and is finally ready to be released. The goal was to bring a full PSP CFW to Vita and its been finally accomplished.
TN-V supports ALL exploits we have ever released and will support any future kernel exploits that happen to get released, but remember that there’s a small chance of one being released anytime soon considering the rarity of them. The next release will probably be VHBL which doesn’t support TN-V and can only do emulators and homebrew.
Below you can find the features, instructions and some tips. Please read through it thoroughly but if you have any issues, head over to the /Talk forums! We hope everyone enjoys this, and special thanks to TN for...
53w ago - Following up on PS Vita Firmware v2.01 release and Half Byte Loader news, today wololo has posted a video of eCFW 6.60 TN-C from The_Z running on PS Vita System Software version 2.01 with details below.
From his blog: The_Z shows us some more work from Frostegater, who is in possession of a PS Kernel exploit and was able to port Total_Noob’s CEF (a PSP custom firmware running in the PSP emulator of the Vita.
The video shows the Vita running an iso of K-On, as well as PSP Filer, and gPSP, the GameBoy advance emulator.
For some of you this is old news (we already mentioned Frostegater has a PSP Kernel exploit), and I’m sure we’ll see a share of complaints in the form of “if you show it, release it”, but hey, this shows that a PSP CFW inside of the Vita on the latest firmware is still possible, and hope is good, I guess.
So what about a release date? Well this is where it gets tricky. Frostegater does plan to release his work, but his Vita was stolen so he cannot make efficient progress on the work. As you will see in the video, him and The_Z are trying...
