Developer Neur0n has been working on a port of VHBL using a new game exploit, and I have been providing a bit of help. A few days ago I could port his work to the EU version of the Game, and yesterday I managed to port it to the US version.
I also was able to confirm VHBL works fine on the Vita, see the picodrvie screenshot below on the EU version of the game, although neur0n had already confirmed that on the JP version a few days ago.
We will now be doing a bit of testing and debugging, while patiently waiting for firmware 1.80. Fingers crossed that this firmware will not patch anything critical
Screenshots: Picodrive (EU version of the exploit), Lamecraft (JP version), Jelly Car (JP version). The screenshots from the JP version come from Neur0n’s twitter.
