25w ago - Today a video was posted demonstrating an incoming PlayStation Vita 2.12 Firmware VHBL exploit (which currently runs through a yet undisclosed PS Vita game) by qwikrazor87 with details below.
To quote: Some of you might have thought that we decided to not be a blog dedicated to hacking, given how slow the hacking news have been recently for the Vita. There was of course the hope of a VHBL port from The Z, but that was a while ago, and he is still waiting for a "significant firmware update" from Sony before releasing his work.
But fear not, as developer qwikrazor87 contacted me with his own VHBL port, which will be released as soon as it is fully tested!
Now, this exploit comes with some limitations. First, as is often the case, we are talking here of a usermode exploit running VHBL inside the PSP emulator of the Vita. This means you'll be able to play a vast majority of PSP homebrews on your vita (including emulators), but this will not let you play PSP isos (which would require a new Kernel exploit, the last public one was in firmware 2.02), let alone Vita isos (no public method exists for this, at all, so don't ask).
Vita Half-Byte Loader is a project to port the PSP homebrew loader HBL to the PlayStation Vita, through the PSP emulator on the PlayStation Vita.
This is the official VHBL download page for people who own a copy of the PSP Game Apache Overkill, and a firmware 2.06 or lower. If you don't own this game, or have a higher firmware, go back to the VHBL page to see if we have a version of VHBL working with a game you own.
How to Install and Run HBL on Apache Overkill
It is *strongly* recommended that you turn of all wireless connections on your PS Vita, and that you use OpenCMA on your PC instead of the regular CMA. This is recommended...
38w 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,...
To quote via wololo's blog: A new user mode exploit has been found by user tomtomdu80.
What makes this user mode exploit different from others is that tomtomdu80 was able to port it to VHBL and has gotten quite good homebrew compatibility, not many exploits achieve this. Below is a video showing the exploit.
Before anyone starts saying things like “it’s fake” or “he’s moving the vita away blablabla”, let me tell you two things:
1- I personally confirm this exploit as I’ve tested it myself on my vita
2- he hides the vita in the video to prevent the game from being shown
From wololo's blog: Important update: it seems for the EU version, you need your console to be set to English language in order for the exploit to work. I'm sure Frostegater will look into this, but in the meantime, if you use the EU version, please switch your console language to English!
Happy new year again! We eventually got convinced to not wait any longer and release the files for Frostegater's port of Total_Noob's CEF for Vita Firmware 2.02.
As a reminder, this tool relies on an exploit in the PSP Game UNO. You must own a legit copy of the UNO game on your...
