56w 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,...

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...
