    Well as the PSN are down for maintenance, I am totally that game name will not be release today.

    So let stop refreshing this blog or Wololo talk today….

  2. algorithm says:

    What is the whole advantage in this anyway? Having to purchase a game, then to fiddle around with homebrew inside a PSP emulator on the Vita. Then ofcourse Sony not allowing access to the store without a firmware update (although proxy methods may circumvent it) For the price of a purchase of a £25 game, i can get a second user PSP system and exploit it entirely.
    Now if allowing Vita games and to utilise the quad cores of CPU and GPU, then it would be a different thing, but i cannot see this happening in the near future (unless it is a hardware hack like on the DS range of machines.

      Please let us know where you can obtain a PSP for £25. Here in Australia the cheapest second hand PSP would be around AU$80.

  3. Josh says:

  4. Rob says:

  6. HeRo says:

    The Store is ONLINE again.

  7. Rob says:

    them you dont need homebrew then! you’ll rather sit back and wait for a half-built skype app! lol

  8. Mud says:

    lol, waiting…..
    I just hope I get this game in time, I want Wagic on the Vita, lol Vagic!

  9. Trolkilla says:

    If you cant wait for it then you dont deserve homebrew/sarcasm. I guess you already tried the skype on vita if you know so much.Enlighten us loser.

    hi wololo.
    i update my psvita 1.67 and i have motorstorm artic (thx a lot for it)
    my question is simple.
    is it possible to execute vhbl with motorstorm with the new vhbl version of cobra?

    • Green Ranger says:

      The exploit has been patched in FW 1.67 so Motorstorm won’t work anymore.

      thecobra found a new eploit in a ”NEW GAME”. So if you want to use VHBL you have to buy the NEW GAME!!! or you’ll out of luck. Launch VHBL with Motorstorm will never work again on any FW after 1.61!!!!

    sorry but this is just a list of the tested games!

  18. sjow says:

    psn store is online again, now the board \talk is down :-S

    Everybody just chillex, wololo has his own life just like you!

    So be patient… and don’t download anything before the official annoucement of wololo has been released to this blog or u got a p.m. (if ur special enough, not me :-))

    ps. if ur smart you wait of confirmation of others..

  19. Gfour84 says:

    hey guys don´t update your vita, i have found a way to download motorstorm on ur vita (ofw 1.61) don´t update it worked for all the new ridge racer stuff. i will tell after i buyed motorstorm!!!! important don´t update if u want vhbl!!!

  20. NeoTechni says:

    “remember that history repeats itself. ”

    So quit being a *** and leave things be.
    Sony released their homebrew SDK, just use that.
    You’re not fooling anyone anymore, you are only aiming for piracy

    • wololo says:

      You’ve been following this blog for years I believe, and you still think I am in for piracy? This is crazy. At first I thought you were one of those random people who come here for the first time through a random post on a major gaming website.

      I have a well paid job and no time to play videogames, why on Earth would I be aiming for piracy?

    • wololo says:

      Also, cut me some slack about the PSS. It was released yesterday out of the blue and you are commenting on an article that is more than a week old. A week ago, Vita support on the PSS was not even a given. I *did* subscribe to the closed beta back in december (january?) and was never accepted. I *will* have a look at the open beta, but again, give me a break, it was announced yesterday, for f…’s sake.

      Also, hacking and developing officially are not mutually exclusive. This is especially true here since from what I read, the terms and conditions of the PSS are not acceptable for most of the things I work on. A game like Wagic (assuming I could come up with a game that does not infringe on a patent in the US) for example, couldn’t go in, because it is open source.

      You’d also be surprised at the amount of hackers in the scene who are working officially with Sony, directly or indirectly, in parallel.

      • Yatessama says:

        Yo wololo f this weiner. You are doing a great job and i know your not in for piracy. Its about all the old school things. Rock on ninja :) plz email me when you decide. Thnks

    • andrerson says:

      io solo devo dire una cosa miticiiii grandi e forti e espero che il nuovo sia rilaciato al piu presto

  21. Gamblor420 says:

    Don’t listen to all these negative douchers. Keep up the good work wololo!!!

  22. pabli95v says:

    what is the game needed for VHBL?

  23. Omar says:

    Fml!!!! Well I missed it again. Where the h3ll was the post tellin what game it was.. I checked here everyday and a few other places.. And now I’m reading that the game has already been pulled. I thought it was going to be announced here!?!?

  24. Omar says:

    Wow right site wrong thread! Such a simple mistake. You can bet your halfbite loader I’ll get it right next time lol hopefully the next exploit isn’t too far away

  25. halwasa says:

    ms.wololo oh god that sound weird XD any way
    I was wondering why dont you release the hack to the ppl in dld or torrent why do we have to download it from the store that may remove it in couple of hours ???

  26. JEAN says:

    vous aver réussi le hack 1.-ç avec une démo?

  27. wololo says:

    You’re welcome.
    Also feeel free to go back to high school, and do not skip economy classes this time, you might understand a few things about why companies like Sony really remove features from their consoles after they’ve lured enough people into buying the new generation of devices :)

  28. TheBudds says:

    They could try, but due to the nature of the exploits used. It would be a really hard case to sell when how VHBL gets run on the Vita is no danger at all to the system itself, no matter how much anyone wants to warp the truth.

    The notice they got over removing both games shows just that. Trying to use vHBL as an excuse to remove the psp emulator will never sell.

    So your insults are pretty baseless, at least learn about the subject your trying to demonize.

  29. wololo says:

    Yes, I am one of those. These black screens with a bunch of random white text always make me super excited. I remember the first time I installed noobz’ eLoader, or the first time I ran the tiff hello world on , err… was it firmware 2.6 ? I was much more excited on that day than with any actual game (homebrew or official games)

  30. KvD says:

    You can add me to your list^^

    every time i load the savegame i´m really exited to see my psv switching from game graphics to plain text :-)

    @wololo: you should add a break before starting the wmenu so that i can extend the moment from switching from sony to user will 😉

    i have several PSPs and i know that feeling since the beginning of psp hacking. i can only hope that skilled people like here around never stop their work (because i will ever stuck at “user level”)

  31. fate6 says:

    yep im with you on that one ^___^

    I even have a boot logo screen like that on my XP and iPod :3

  32. Green Ranger says:

    Yeah, it’s an awesome feeling when you see the Gamescreen dissapears and the plain text runs on your screen…every time.

    And i remember when i got dualboot work on my Iphone 3G for the first time…it was an awesome feeling.

  33. Koji says:

    Linux was free, made Sony no money (really they lost money since the systems sold at a loss and people that used it only for Linux never bought any games to make back that money), and since no one spent money on it, they had no real legal recourse (you can’t claim monetary damages if you didn’t lose money).

    The PSP games are NOT free, DOES make Sony money, and since some people have already spent tens to hundreds of dollars on it Sony would be in a HUGE legal bind. At the MINIMUM they’d have to to do a full refund to all the customers (something Sony would not want to do) and likely they’d face legal fees and possible damages on top of that.

  34. Norml says:

    Ja jA Ja! That’s going to end bad.
    Training! LMAO! Nice guy.

  35. z2442 says:

    im also with you guys there the good days haha back when i was around 14 programming for the psp.

  36. wololo says:

    You assume correctly.

  37. kofek says:

    so you admit you are nothing but a selfish pirate, hope sony sues the hellout of you…

  38. wololo says:

    I am definitely selfish, but I don’t see where you came up with the idea of me being a pirate.
    What I am doing is legal, I am not bypassing any drm, and I am not promoting any type of intellectual property infringement. Stop trolling, ignorant people like you just annoy me.

    If you want to discuss the pros and cons of what I do, at the very least, do it politely and with actual knowledge to explain your opinion. I am ok to discuss with people who have enough respect to understand both sides of the arguments pro or against console hacks.

  39. Jose says:

    In light of recent events, I can understand why these people would get angry at this.

    The PSN hack left a very bad taste to name one thing. The removal of Other OS might be another, all these things create a sort of stereotype towards the homebrew community.

    I know very well of the pro’s and cons this can create, and I wish people would be a little more mature and open minded when it came to these type of things.

    I can’t wait for the release of this, since I didn’t buy my Vita in time for the last ones.

  40. Seaking says:

    Lol. Everyone needs to stop falling for this. Im surprised there weren’t news articles posted as “Corpse Party is the US exploit game!”
