- Following up on his previous
VHBL exploit and Sony's PS Vita Firmware Update v2.05
has now made available a demo video spotlighting a PS Vita Half Byte Loader for Firmware 2.05 below.
To quote: We announced last week that developer Tomtomdu80 got VHBL to run with a new user mode exploit. A few days ago, The Z published a video showing Tomtomdu80′s exploit running VHBL perfectly on PS Vita's latest firmware 2.05.
Firmware 2.05 patches both the user and kernel exploits used with UNO to run CEF and ARK. It's also been confirmed that the latest Sony firmware patches several kernel exploits that were all relying on the same pattern (security issues related to the kermit wlan implementation). Technically, the end user is back to square one if they are on firmware 2.05.
Thankfully, there are still lots of usermode exploits available in many psp games, and some of them can be used to port, if not a psp custom firmware (a kernel exploit would be required for that), at least VHBL.
VHBL is a Homebrew loader for the Vita running in...
