114w ago - This weekend PlayStation Vita homebrew developer deroad has released PS VitaTools v1.00, which includes a PKG_Reader and PUPUnpack along with source code.

Download: PS VitaTools v1.00 / PS VitaTools v1.00 (Compiled) by nathanr3269 / GIT

From his blog: VitaTools v1.00

I uploaded a new version of pkg_reader and added the awsome pupunpack for PSVITA PUPs (I built this one right now. just 30 mins it works as the PS3 version.)!!

I hope that these tools will be useful someday!

I want to thanks fail0verflow team for their src. It's really useful for me (I made a few changes to the files to allow debug message)!


 

Video: PS Vita Running PSP Homebrew via Half-Byte Loader (HBL)

1300°
118w ago - Today PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has shared a video (below) demonstrating several PSP homebrew applications and emulators running on PS Vita using their Half-Byte Loader (HBL).

To quote: In the past days I stabilized HBL for Teck4's exploit and got some major homebrews to work.

In the video below I'm showing a few homebrews running on the PS Vita. I also included Picodrive again to show that fixing the sound issue is relatively easy as it is just a setting in the emulator. Check the video below.

You can see in this video snes9xTYL (super nes emulator), Bookr (pdf reader), CSPSP, T.O.M.E. (text mode rpg), EmuMaster (game boy emulator), Zombie Crisis (FPS), Wagic (which loads about 10 times faster than on a real PSP, this talks for the improved access speed of this new memory stick format), cavestory (platform/adventure), Picodrive (sega genesis emulator), Spider solitaire, ScummVM (point-and-click adventure), Daedalus (N64 emulator, this is not DaedalusX64), FCEU-PSP (Nes emulator). Those are more or less the homebrews I recommended to HBL users back when HBL was big.

Missing from this video is (unfortunately) gpsp which I couldn't get to run on the Vita, while it ran fine...
 

Video: Doom PSP Homebrew Game Running on PS Vita via HBL

1300°
120w ago - It wasn't long ago that we saw a Sega emulator running on PlayStation Vita, and now homebrew developer wololo has shared a video of the Doom PSP homebrew game running on PS Vita though the Half Byte Loader (HBL).

To quote: A year and a half ago when I got Doom for PSP to run on the PSP Go, website hackaday noticed it and said “[being able to run Doom is] a prerequisite for any cracked device”. Some people try to run Linux on their hardware at all cost, I prefer Doom.

Today I was able to tweak HBL a bit on the PS Vita to get Doom to run on it. Will I get hackaday’s attention this time too? That’s, hands down, the best fps available on the vita so far, check the video below!

We are aware that this hack will be easily patched by Sony, but we still plan to publicly release it some time soon after the US/EU release of the Vita (we still have to port HBL to the EU/US versions of the game but that shouldn’t have any difficulty).

I also know that some devs are already working on solutions to make it “easier” for people who would want to stay on a low firmware....
 

OpenCMA Blocks PS Vita Content Manager Internet Connections

120w ago - Over the weekend PlayStation Vita developer Virtuous Flame has made available OpenCMA, an open-source homebrew application that prevents the PS Vita Content Manager from connecting to the Internet to bypass online and the latest OFW checks.

OpenCMA r1 for PS Vita / OpenCMA r2 for PS Vita / OpenCMA r3 for PS Vita / OpenCMA r4 for PS Vita / OpenCMA r4 for PS Vita (1.80 Fix) / OpenCMA r4.5 for PS Vita (Unofficial) / OpenCMA r5 for PS Vita / OpenCMA r5 for PS Vita (Mirror) / Open CMA 6 by hossain.zip / SVN / YifanLu's...
 

Video: Picodrive Sega Megadrive Emulator Demo via HBL on PS Vita

1300°
120w ago - Following up on his previous confirmation, today Sony PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has made available a video below demonstrating the Half Byte Loader (HBL) running the Picodrive Sega Megadrive emulator with Sonic & Knuckles on PS Vita.

To quote: Update: One important clarification: This video shows HBL running on the latest firmware 1.510. The firmware update that happened today does not patch the exploit, unlike what some sites are saying.

A few days ago Japanese developer Teck4 posted a picture of a “hello world” running on the PS Vita through the PSP emulator. I contacted him immediately with some help from Mamosuke, and I soon got enough information to start working on porting Half Byte Loader to this exploit (note that Teck4 is also working on exploiting this vulnerability further, but I don’t know how far he’s been).

What you see in the video below is the game “Sonic & Knuckles” running in picodrive, a Megadrive emulator for the PSP.

Yes, I’m running an emulator...
