3w ago - Today Japanese PlayStation Vita hackers 173210 and Nakkan0835 shared pictures and a demo video of a hacked PS Vita TV running TotalNoob's upcoming TN-v4 VHBL exploit on PlayStation Vita TV below.
From the video's caption: This video shows 173210's VHBL is working on PS Vita TV. The savedata directory name is fake. Don't worry
To quote: (Pictures) emulators running on the Vita TV, make the device exciting again
If you have read my Vita TV review (and if you haven't, do it now!), you know I have been hugely disappointed by the device so far, mostly because of the poor level of its game compatibility and services offer.
Mathieulh, of ps3 and psp hacking fame (remember pandora batteries?), happens to both be a beta tester of TotalNoob's upcoming TN-v4, and to own one of the Japan-only Vita TVs. He was successfully able to run TN-V on his vita TV, now making the device much more interesting to my eyes.
4w ago - Following up on the previous exploits for PS Vita Firmware 2.61, today PlayStation Vita developer Yosh (aka wth) released another PSP Usermode 2.61 exploit for Half Minute Hero with details below.
To quote: PSVita Official Firmware 3.00 was a major update and it has been discovered that a LOT of game exploits were patched (around 20) so many developers whose private exploits got patched are releasing them for earlier firmwares. Frostegater has already released two: Pipe Madness and Fieldrunners. This time, it’s Yosh aka wth on the /talk forums with Half Minute Hero.
In his post on the /talk forums, Yosh says: “Hey guys, with PSVita 3.00 firmware update were apparently quite several exploits (include private ones too) patched, including the private exploit of mine I’ve been using since Everybody’s Tennis was published and fixed.
Indeed Zer01ne used his Uno exploit until it got...
5w ago - Following up on the release of PS Vita Firmware 3.00, today some video footage of a VHBL and Hello World for PS Vita FW 3.00 appeared alongside a PlayStation Vita 2.61 Firmware VHBL Exploit by Frostegater with details below.
To quote from Acid_Snake via Wololo: The game exploits patched by Vita FW 3.00, and how this will impact future VHBL/TN-V releases
You may have heard of different naughty surprises that came with firmware 3.00, and you may ask what the hell this has to do with me? you may also wonder about the future of VHBL and TN-V4, I’m gonna tap on that here, but I’m also gonna explain why I think Sony has made a huge dumb mistake.
8w ago - Following up on the previous updates, today PSP developer 173210 has released VHBL for PlayStation Vita 2.61 Firmware users, which uses an exploit in the Japanese title Jikkyu Powerful Pro Yakyu 2012 Ketteiban.
To quote: As I type this, I believe the exploited game for this release, Jikkyu Powerful Pro Yakyu 2012 Ketteiban, is still available on the JP PSN store. The Game is fairly expensive and probably didn’t attract so much attention. If you really want to run emulators on your Vita, it might still be possible for you to get that game.
VHBL is a homebrew loader running inside the PSP emulator on the Playstation Vita. It lets you run PSP homebrews, including several emulators (SNES, NES, GBA, etc...), but will not let you run PSP isos, let alone pirate PS vita games.
Many thanks go to developer 173210 for his work on his exploit,...
Here it is, the long awaited VHBL release for Qwikrazo87′s VHBL port to the Vita Firmware 2.12!
So, before we give you the files, a bit of disclaimer: This VHBL port runs through an exploit in the game Gamocracy one: legend of Robot. We announced that game secretly to our community members over the past few weeks, and publicly a few days ago. Since then, Sony have pulled the game from their stores, and if history repeats itself, the next Vita firmware update will have a patch for the game....
