20w ago - Following up on Sony's release of PS Vita Firmware 2.12 Update and the news from Qwikrazor87, today some more PSP exploitable game details for PS Vita 2.12 allowing homebrew to run on VHBL have arrived.
This time, a vulnerability was found in Gamocracy One: Legend of Robot for PSP along with another undisclosed title with details below.
From Wololo: Exploitable Game for PS Vita 2.12 announced (VHBL)
You’ve been waiting a lot for this, we had to delay the ninja release for several reasons (one being that I shamelessly took 4 days of holiday last week, and therefore couldn’t have handled a public announcement at that time), but there it is, the public announce of the game used to run Qwikrazor87′s VHBL port for the Vita 2.12.
So, before we start, a few reminders:
VHBL is provided “as is” without any guarantee. In order to run VHBL, you will need to buy the specific game mentioned below and install it on your Vita. Keep in mind that the money you pay for the game goes to Sony and the developers of the game,...
24w 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).
34w ago - Following up on Sony's recent PS Vita Firmware 2.10 release, PlayStation Vita hacker The Z has shared some videos of a Hello World and VHBL running on it alongside news of TN-V v3 incoming.
Below are the details via Wololo, to quote: It is no secret that PS Vita scene member The Z has a PSP hack available and running on the Vita. He actually mentioned that a while ago back when 2.06 was the latest and greatest.
Today, as firmware 2.10 was announced then quickly made available, we got the usual flow of questions: Have exploits been patched? Does VHBL still work? Will TN save the world from the Giant Crab?
Well at least now we can at least answer one of those, as The Z was quick to confirm that his current exploit is still alive on PS Vita 2.10, as shown in the video below.
Don’t get too excited though. This is, as is now the tradition, “only” a usermode exploit inside of the PSP emulator, running through an undisclosed PSP game, and The Z has not announced anything about a release.
To some of you, this might sound like a broken record now, but new people...
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...
44w ago - Following up on his previous VHBL exploit and Sony's PS Vita Firmware Update v2.05, Tomtomdu80 has now made available a demo video spotlighting a PS Vita Half Byte Loader for Firmware 2.05 below.
To quote: We announced last week that developer Tomtomdu80 got VHBL to run with a new user mode exploit. A few days ago, The Z published a video showing Tomtomdu80′s exploit running VHBL perfectly on PS Vita's latest firmware 2.05.
Firmware 2.05 patches both the user and kernel exploits used with UNO to run CEF and ARK. It's also been confirmed that the latest Sony firmware patches several kernel exploits that were all relying on the same pattern (security issues related to the kermit wlan implementation). Technically, the end user is back to square one if they are on firmware 2.05.
Thankfully, there are still lots of usermode exploits available in many psp games, and some of them can be used to port, if not a psp custom firmware (a kernel exploit would be required for that), at least VHBL.
VHBL is a Homebrew loader for the Vita running in...
