I regularly get emails from people who want us to port VHBL to this or that game, or people who contact me with a game crash but don’t know where to take it from here. PSP (usermode) exploits used to be seen as voodoo magic, and doable only by an elite of hackers, until I started writing tutorials on how to do it, back in 2009. Finding an exploit in a PSP game requires brains, lots of free time, and minimal programming knowledge, but is nowhere as complex as most people think. The techniques to find them used to be a secret, not that hackers in those days thought it was a secret to be kept, but because nobody ever took the time to write the process down in a user-friendly way.

Two weeks ago we started the most Epic giveaway ever done on the scene: a huge Easter Egg Hunt with a total of $1000 in PSN Codes to be found on our website. Up to $250 could be found so far in various pages of our site. All of the PSN Codes so far have been claimed, and we revealed their locations in this thread on /talk

Today, I will hide an additional $250 in 25 eggs, pushing our total to $500. Although I have removed some of the already claimed eggs from the site, a few are still remaining, so to be clear, there might be more than 25 Easter eggs on the site, but some of them have been claimed last week. As for last week, the Eggs can be found in the following places: CF5J

Even though it’s only been targeting the PSP emulator so far, the Vita scene has been pretty lively over the past 2 years. With about 20 exploits released over the past 24 months, including 2 major “eCFW” releases (one around Christmas 2012, the other one in December last year), believe it or not, the Vita scene is actually releasing more exploits than the PSP scene used to, which is unfortunately the result of these exploits being such short-lived…

To counter the hack, Sony typically remove the exploited games within 48h of our announcements. To mitigate that, we announce the exploits secretly to our community through a process we call “ninja releases“.

For the people on 3.10 or 3.12 who are not lucky enough to have access to the latest VHBL exploit (JP only, up to firmware 3.12!), the question most people want to be answered now is if and when the next exploit will be released.
