VHBL for Motorstorm Arctic Edge Released!

If you are lucky enough to be one of the few owners of Motorstorm Arctic Edge, VHBL is now available for download.

Please report Success/Failure here or on our forums.

As you will see, installing homebrews is a bit of a pain, so if you’re a good hearted guy who understands my explanations in the readme, please feel free to share homebrews packaged “correctly” for VHBL. Note: you can have several homebrews in one “install” file. For example if you zip all your PSP/GAME folder, all the homebrews in there can be installed at once by VHBL.

Download On the VHBL page

    Yea, thank you very much… I remember you said “it won’t be like you go to bed and next morning, it’s out and already finished” or something like that. Well, guess what, there people who doesn’t check your website every day and if you post “it will be released today”, it’s like you didn’t post anything. I was hoping you would be kind enough to post something like “it will be released after 1 week from this post, exact time, be ready”. Well, nevermind I guess, I’m just disappointed

      Here’s what I did to make sure you didn’t have to lose sleep over this:
      - announce the name of the game starting on February 21st, to the people who were able to read between the lines of the vhbl page
      - For the public announcement, not release the files at the same time as the name of the game, in the hope that Sony wouldn’t remove a Game from their store without any proof of the exploit. That was a poker move, and I failed, but even at the worst, the game was up for about 12 hours between the announcement and Sony’s reaction.

      I said I would do my best for you not to lose sleep over this. I believe I did do my best, and that the goal was achieved: most people don’t need 12 hours to sleep. If you don’t check my site every day, it’s your problem, not mine, I did my part of the work as far as I can tell.

      If I had said “this will be announced on xx/xx at hh:mm”, not only would it have been exactly the same (Sony removing the game within hours), but in addition to that, my server would have browned out, so you wouldn’t have been able to get the info. And you would have been disappointed anyways because the announcement hours would have been the middle of the night for you, or in the middle of the day when you’re at work, or something else…

      You’re a self entitled idiot scot, the fact that wololo i seven making such things for both the psp and ps vita is already great, and any little whiner should go make something valuable themselves before complaining about small things.

    I still think that finding a way to directly access the memory card via the vita’s usb would be a better starting point. CMA can read and write data to and from the card, and it would be alot easier to run CMA through a debugger to find out how it accesses the memory card than to try and find an exploit within a closed system that will only get patched up a couple of days later.

      Right, I do agree. I consider VHBL as an apetizer: we are using old tricks in the PSP emulator to have fun while we wait for the main dish :) As I said many times, lots of people who are much more clever than I am are looking into many ways to get access to the Vita.

      Nevermind. I figured out why this isn’t possible.

    Any ideas on a game for the us. Go for metal slug because its cheap and it look hackable

      If people send me game exploits, I’m willing to port HBL to those exploits, or to help them do it. I however don’t have the time to look for exploits, so at the very least I need a savegame that does the minimal task of overriding $ra
