Release: VHBL 154-TC For Super Collapse 3, by TheCobra

This is an “official-unofficial” release for you guys who are still lucky enough to be on 1.67 and run VHBL on the Super Collapse 3 exploit.

TheCobra released today an updated version of VHBL for this exploit. This is an official build because theCobra is the one who initially ported VHBL to this exploit, but “unofficial” in a way because the sources are not available yet, and I haven’t had the opportunity to test it on a Vita (I’m on 1.69 now…). That being said, it worked fine on my PSP, and several users have reported a better experience than the previous release (understand: better stability) overall in some games such as Jelly Car or Lamecraft.

The idea behind the fix is that theCobra hooked a bunch of functions with a generic “ok” response instead of having HBL trying to estimate their syscall. What this means is that these functions will not work, but at least they won’t crash. Depending on the function, and on how well the homebrew handles errors, this can lead to less crashes overall.

Download

Download on the official VHBL page, as usual

Thanks to theCobra! you can report regression issues or success on the thread he started on /talk (and use the opportunity to thank him for his work, by the way).

      Acid_Snake: rename hbl_config.txt into hblconf.txt. I think thecobra forgot to do a bunch of renames, as I changed some of the filenames in a recent revision.
      also, all .nids files need to be renamed into .nid , but that seems to be less critical.

      VHBL isn’t for piracy, scumbag! It’s because of people like you that everyone else misunderstands those who want to use the Vita for homebrew or emulators. Why don’t YOU make “1000 people” happy and go away?

      I’ve tested that and it doesn’t work with the usual tools. Also, that key looks suspiciously too similar to the PS3 key.

        yeah, it’s so similar

    Pretty new to the PSvita scene, but I’m pretty savvy with my old PSP. Anyway, I thought I was on the latest Vita firmware, but it turns out I still have a 1.67 Vita… but I take it from everything I’ve read, I’ve missed the bandwagon and will have to wait till a new exploit is released? I gather you also have to be quick off the mark to grab the game needed before it disappears? Probably a no brainer, but is it worth updating it to 1.69 or am I better sticking with 1.67?

    1. wololo’s avatar

      With my current knowledge, I’d say updating to 1.69 will not shut you out of any useful hack. *BUT* I don’t necessarily know everything, so my advice is: update only if you need to.

      Asmith906@ Yeah, i receive report that it did fix the problem with picodrive freezing. Only problem is with some audio but i fix that later with time.

        Does sega cd mp3 playback work on Picrodrive while using it in VHBL? I have a gp2x wiz system and all my sega cd games playback mp3 audio fine, but when used in VHBL it does not. Am I the only one with this issue, or is this a common problem?

    It didn’t really help with other games like duke nukem most games still give you an error code (c1-2858-3)
