Urbanix was removed from the EU Stores

That was fast!

I am getting a growing number of reports that following the announce of Total_Noob’s HEN a few hours ago, the game Urbanix, which has an exploit allowing people to run his PSP Custom Firmware on the Vita, was removed from the EU PSN stores. People are reporting that the game was also removed from their download list. I expect the same will happen to the other locales (US, JP, etc…) within a few hours.

If you have the game installed on your console (US, EU, JP,…), great for you, don’t touch anything and make a backup using Open CMA.

If you have one of the previous VHBL exploits, it is possible the kernel exploit will get backported to your game exploit at some point, so if you are interested in that Kernel exploit the idea for you is to wait and see (and to not update your firmware).

If you are lucky enough to be able to still buy the game on the US or JP store or whatever, and want this exploit, do it now. Not in a few hours, not after your lunch break, but now.

If you are in none of the situations above, you probably missed a good and rare opportunity… put the following note on your fridge: “check wololo.net more regularly in the future”… People who check this site daily knew about this 3 days ago. People who can read between the lines knew about this 3 months ago.

The game was really pulled fast. It is not clear if this is because of the poor planning of the whole release (exploit initially leaked without a proper ninja release, then CFW announced in the middle of Sony’s working hours), or if Sony reacted faster because a Kernel exploit is involved. We will probably never know.

I am quite sure we’ll have lots of news to share about this in the days to come: compatibility with previous usermode exploits, tutorials, probably a few improvements are also to be expected from TN himself…

Stay tuned.

        Hello, I am keeping up with this post, but I concur with the previous post, when I load, I get a black screen and then an error.. I noticed that the EU version has more files than the US version of CEF, are we supposed to merge some of the files together?? Please let us know, we are eager to also see what psp games we can play..

          Just tried it, for all of you having the same problem I did, all you have to do is copy both files over to the psvita.. Then load the game and it should load fine..

          For it to recognize games do we simply need to compress them to .ZIP and rename them to GAMENAME.ZIP and drop them into the root of the save folder?

    yay by the time i got home from college it was gone. Will there be a way to do this with other minis? Or can we do this with previously patched vhbl? Is there a chance for those who did not download this game to get a second chance? What can this exploit lead to besides psp cfw? Can this bring along a vita kernel exploit? I know its a lot of questions but i gotta know

    1. wololo’s avatar

      Will there be a way to do this with other minis?
      –> probably not anytime soon

      can we do this with previously patched vhbl?
      –> If you have MH and firmware 1.80, yes, it might be backported. If you’re on 1.81, the only game that would work for you is Urbanix

      Is there a chance for those who did not download this game to get a second chance?
      –> Hmm…. Motorstorm, Everybody’s Tennis, Super collapse 3, Monster Hunter, Urbanix… you mean a 6th chance, right? Same question I ask everybody else: if you missed the previous 5 exploits, what makes you think you will get the 6th one?

      What can this exploit lead to besides psp cfw?
      –> Most likely nothing more

      Can this bring along a vita kernel exploit?
      –> Probably not

        yea is wy i was stooked wen i had da monster hunter running n more wen i got urbanix working after the us save release but yea psp emulation alright but i herd fulll vita cf would be fun but right now not to much games out yet fo da vita so a lil pointless since most of the game take up a lot of memory n da sony memory card cant hold dat much n u can only have like eight screen on da vita home page dat can only hold ten apps or game well i had an eight gb card n filled the thing up wit demos but yea dont think it cant fit all my game n apps almost loaded wit psp mini psone apps n games from sonys mobile (deas a pretty good beats one)but yea psp emulation great wish i still had da game.think da vita only lets u have a certain about of apps or games install on it at a time thinkg wit the apps u cant delete dat u can probly be around 80 welll guess cheack u can have 10 pages wit 10 games or apps on dem. but yea a vita expoit would be bad aszzz

    Is there any chance Sony return Urbanix to PSN (after 1.82 release, for example)?

    My guess is: if I activate my Vita PSN account now and download Urbanix via PS3 later (if they return it to PSN) from the same account, I’m pretty sure it will be possible to transfer it without connecting Vita to PSN and updating to 1.82.

    Reply

    1. Yes’s avatar

      I might be wrong, but i’m pretty sure that you can’t transfer games from your PS3 to Vita without being connected to the interenet. And when you’re connected to the internet, then the Vita will ask you to update the firmware.

      Sony did the same thing with the previous games like Motorstorm Arctic Edge and Super Collapse 3. They removed those games and added them back later on. I didn’t hear any stories that it was possible to do a PS3 to Vita transfer for those games when not using the latest Vita firmware.

    Is it possible to use a european Credit card to buy things on JAP psn store? It was possible back in the day on my ps3.

  38. Stiffeno’s avatar

    Those who dont already have Urbanix and are waiting for Sony to put it back on the PSN, DO NOT waste ur money buying it coz it will have the exploit patched!

    See when Sony learns the name of the game thats being exploited, they pull it from the online store. They THEN patch the exploit hole over the following few days, and then they add the game back to the online store for sale…so dont buy it thinking the exploit will work, coz it wont. If you dont already own it, its too late im sorry.

    Just thought i would post coz a few ppl were under the impression that once the game is back for sale, they can still exploit it, but thats not the case…i just dont want ppl wasting money coz they are mis-informed or dont know any better!
