- 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...
