Video: PSX Games Running on PS Vita Exploit Hack Demo

350°
100w ago - Last week we reported on how the PlayStation Suite SDK allows NES emulation on PS Vita, and today PlayStation Vita homebrew developer wololo reports that PSX games are now running PS Vita through an exploit hack as demonstrated in the video below.

To quote: A few weeks ago, an anonymous hacker released a dump of the flash0 from the PSP emulator running on the PS Vita. Although it brought nothing new for the end user, it was a verifiable proof that this hacker has access to a kernel exploit running on the PSP emulator.

This week, the same dev apparently got PS1 games to run on the Vita, as shown in the video below (thanks to the Z)

For those who wonder, I have no reason to doubt the authenticity of the video, I wouldn't see any good reason for a guy who has proven he has a kernel PSP exploit to then produce a fake.

It is important to clarify that our forum member the Z is in contact with this anonymous developer, but they are (AFAIK)...

100w ago - Following up on the initial release, today KDSBest has updated their PS3 / PC SPU emulation project to Alpha 2 which allows your x86 machine to emulate the PlayStation 3 SPU.

Download: PS3 SPU Emulation Alpha 2 Module

To quote: SPU Emulation Alpha2 has been released: mBox implemented and MFC prepared, bugfixes, breakpoints implemented and all commands for metldr as far as KDSBest knows.

Hi Community,

I wanted to contribute to the scene, so I coded a tool that might help the community our members and fellow dev's. This Tool is intended for dev's so please be careful if you don't know what you do. I will not be held responsible for any harm.

My tool is a emulator for PS3 modules (e.g metldr), it is in pre alpha stage but I thought, it would be great to get some community feedback.

How to use:

Not all SPU Commands are implemented yet, but it is easily extendable and I will make it support DMA, all SPU Commands and SPU Mailbox soon.

First open a .kds file. Check out the metldr.kds to see an example....

1000°
101w ago - Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation Vita homebrew developer wololo has made available PS Vita HBL (VHBL r150) for Super Collapse 3 which now fixes some crashing issues with snes9xTYL and Lamecraft.

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,...
