82w 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)...
82w 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,...
84w 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.
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...
From his blog, to quote: Less than 24hours after our public announcement of the existence of a vulnerability in the PSP game "Super Collapse 3″, Sony pulled out the game from their store, like they did for Motorstorm and Everybody's Tennis before.
Now comes the stressful moment for me: releasing the VHBL files publicly, and cross fingers that it works correctly on everybody's Vita.
It is worth mentioning that, as for our previous releases, members of the /talk forums knew about the game's name up to one week in advance, which gave most of them enough time to get the game without any issue.
I want once again to thank the community for being able to keep the secret, although it didn't go without issues. Way too many people talked about the release publicly on our forums,...
