    Ohh, I can’t wait to get some of that sweet, sweet homebrew goodness! I got a vita, seeing all the “cfw” vids on YouTube, so I was very disappointed when I saw that they were all fake. I had it on my PSP, and it was the only reason I kept it, so hopefully vita homebrew will be just as good. Where is a good place to DL homebrew for the vita BTW?

  2. Madblaster6 says:

    I can’t wait. Hopefully I can play my backed up PSP GAMES.

  3. RadioActiveIceCreamProject says:

    We salute you for what you have achieved, I, as one of your supporters we know that you can go farther than that..

    Since the PSP is now more like a wrecked building, why don’t we rebuild it like a tower of useful homebrews or having a blast from the past games to run from the emulators?

    I think it will not hurt our PSV game developers.. right players??

    • Spike says:

      The PSP is hacked wide open every which way from here to Sunday and back again. I don’t know what else you would want for it.

  4. Yuanhuang says:

    Hi, can i know when is the game name release? is it a ps vita game demo?

  5. geopis says:

    ape quest is right game for the new exploit?

  6. Gfour84 says:

    maybe, i just sayd what i heard in the past, but good to know that it is a demo!

  7. TrE says:

    demo? i never heard anyone say demo..

  8. Shaun says:

    No reputable source has stated that it is a demo. Ignore the trolls.

  9. Deftrip says:

    hey!! can anyone tell me if 30$ will be ok to get the game from the US store?
    Please wololo tell me i dont wanna miss this time…

  10. barjololo says:

    please, say us, if we should spend a lot of moneys?
    I have enough moneys, that is why i have’nt could buy motor storm !

    Keep good work, and congratulation !

  11. silver_ring says:

    PSN Store is undergoing maintainance. Maybe Sony is trying to removes the exploit games 🙁

  12. Gfour84 says:

    sorry guys i don´t want to troll. i just tell you what i heard. the guy send me a file, he told me to rename it to .png, then i can see which game it is, after renaming it, it showed the cover of the ape quest game. maybe he lied, but he told me something about W I P S Wrapper or similar. i try to find the post again where someone say it´s a demo game. i hope they will share, but i think this time they will not, maybe someone told sony too and now (the psn under maintainence) and now they maybe fixed it.

    • Shaun says:

      Well, maybe the reason why Sony knows is because you just announced it to the world. If you thought it was the real deal you should have kept it a secret. (Not saying you’re right)

  13. t-ice says:

    server wird gewartet =O

    • ndh777 says:

      lol read what everyone says after the OP.

      This is scheduled maintenance from Sony. If they wanted to remove the game, they could do it easily with the flip of a switch.

  14. windgust says:

    finaly US game exploit wonder how much you would need for it.
    please let us know what the game is when your rdy hope i will have enough for it. missed out on the others

  17. Ricardo says:

    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….

  18. 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.

    • Shaun says:

      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.

  19. Josh says:

    Uh…did you guys not see that this post isn’t real? =/ no new vhbl has been announced to my knowing…

  20. Rob says:

    psn is up & running again!
    release the damn thing already

  21. Trolkilla says:

    Don’t release it till next month after the new fw update,please .And to all you trolls telling to release now,have patience and think with your head,id rather vhbl with my new fw with skype which is coming @the end of the month .

  22. HeRo says:

    The Store is ONLINE again.

  23. Rob says:

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

  24. Mud says:

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

  25. 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.

  26. alpmaster007 says:

    Hello Wololo I requested you as a friend on the forum and
    was just wondering if you got mu p.m thanks 🙂

  27. sean says:

    Man just give it up. you want homebrew or whatever the *** it is keep it on the PSP. Damn dude there are alot of other things to be doing in this world than hacking ***. You and I both know people will use this *** to pirate and whatever else this *** does. If you are gonna do this, keep it to yourself instead of telling the whole world. everyone already knows you are a smart dude. Really hope this doesn’t cause us to lose dev support just like the P.C.

  28. Ungarok says:

    the french ps store maintenance is end now, i just check it

  29. Trolkilla says:

    Good for you .You now know how to go on psn.

  30. astromatik says:

    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!!!!

  31. Gfour84 says:
