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!"

Fate6 confirmed my VHBL port working on PS Vita 1.69.1 and the game being on Vita US PSN

I have a european account and this game is not on european PSN, so I couldn't test it on my Vita. Thanks fate6 For...

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)...

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.

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,...

103w ago - Following up on the recent rumor of PSOne game emulation support for PS Vita, today PlayStation Vita hacker The_Zett has made available a decrypted Flash0 dump of the PSP emulator for PS Vita which includes the kernel / user keys.

Download: Flash0 of PSP Emulator for PS Vita Dump

From his Twitter feed, to quote:

An unknown VITA developer shared some interesting files, a little hint - PSP emulator and f0

From The Z on PlayStation Vita developer wololo's forum (linked above) on the release, to quote:

An unknown Vita developer has shared an interesting link some hours ago, which contains a full dump of the flash0 of the vita psp emulator - Including the kermit modules and the psvita kernel keys!

This dump can lead some professional Vita developers to kernel access, which will give us the ability to play nearly every homebrew. Backup launcher could be possible as well, but for these ones a high rank developer would be needed for programming it.

The developer says that he shared the files because...
