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

Download: PS Vita HBL (VHBL r150) for Super Collapse 3 / VHBL R154-TC For Supper Collapse 3 (US/EU)

To quote from his blog: This patch fixes some crashing issues with snes9xTYL and Lamecraft, among other things.

There are still remaining issues with the VHBL port of Super Collapse 3 that I couldn't solve yet, I am still investigating: the Duke3d engine is crashing (Duke3d, zombie crisis), Daedalus seems to be crashing when loading roms (I probably won't investigate this, as Daedalus is slow on VHBL no matter what), Geometry War Portable crashes at startup, Picodrive will crash if you press the "select" button, etc...

So, still lots of incompatibilities of course, but this is getting better, and I sure hope you guys will enjoy snes9xTyl. Interestingly, I had to hook sceAudioOutput with sceAudioOutputblocking,...

104w ago - As a follow-up to his previous announcement, today PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has made available VHBL r148 for Super Collapse 3 which supports up to PS Vita Firmware 1.67.

Download: PS Vita HBL (VHBL r148) for Super Collapse 3 (US/EU) / gpSP for VHBL R148

From his blog, to quote: Less than 24hours after our public announcement of the existence of a vulnerability in the PSP game "Super Collapse 3″, Sony pulled out the game from their store, like they did for Motorstorm and Everybody's Tennis before.

Now comes the stressful moment for me: releasing the VHBL files publicly, and cross fingers that it works correctly on everybody's Vita.

It is worth mentioning that, as for our previous releases, members of the /talk forums knew about the game's name up to one week in advance, which gave most of them enough time to get the game without any issue.

I want once again to thank the community for being able to keep the secret, although it didn't go without issues. Way too many people talked about the release publicly on our forums,...

To quote: The preparing process to run the games with VHBL is a bit annoying so I decided to code a little tool which will do this task for you or rather a big part of this task.

I called this program "PS Vita Homebrew Preparer". Here is a screenshot of it.

It decompress the PSP homebrew game for you and compress it again with some saves included...
 

PS Vita Half Byte Loader (HBL) Progress Update By Wololo

1300°
120w ago - Following up on his previous update, PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has shared a progress update on the PS Vita Half Byte Loader (HBL).

Additionally, Nabnab has also made available a video showcasing some hidden PS Vita information for those interested!

To quote: A quick report: I'm making some progress on porting HBL to the Vita. Although I'm sad to say that I can't get syscall estimation to work, I got some major homebrews such as Doom to run already, so overall I think it's in an acceptable shape.

Because it is roughly stable now, today I focused on porting HBL to the EU version of the exploited game (I was working - obviously - on the Japanese version of the game so far). This went smoothly and I can confirm HBL runs fine on the EU version of the game, although of course I could only test on a PSP, not on a Vita.

I used the opportunity to refresh my two guides, how to write a binary loader and how to port...
