VHBL Running on Vita 2.01

This will not come as a big surprise for those of you who know how these things work, but it’s always nice to have a confirmation: VHBL still runs fine on Vita’s firmware 2.01, and The Z proves it to us with a video.

The video showcases Frostegater’s latest port of VHBL to an unknown usermode exploit in a PSP Game. On the video we can see VHBL running Zelda on Masterboy (Game boy and master system emulator), Wagic (Collectible card game), and PSPFiler (File manager for the PSP).

This is most likely the same version that was running a few days ago on 2.0, as we can safely assume Sony did not patch any undisclosed vulnerability with 2.01. There is still no word on a release yet, and it is still unclear if Frostegater will focus on a VHBL release or work on his own port of Total_Noob’s CEF, since he seems to also be in possession of a PSP Kernel exploit. As a reminder for those who just joined us, we had a PSP Kernel exploit available up to 1.81, but that got patched in 2.0. At this point we still have lots of usermode exploits that should allow fairly easily to port VHBL (which gives us access to limited PSP homebrew compatibility), but PSP kernel exploits are a treat which is much more difficult to find.

    well it depends on the “scene” aswell, if people dont care about vhbl then the qualified Developers (also not SKFU)have more energy for actual vita hacks

    they do it for free they do it for you (and the challenge)

    Is this exploit game related??? If it is couldn’t sony just look at the account associated with his MAC address and check the games he has downloaded/registered for any vulnerabilities? If not please do not yell…. I was only wondering.

      yet sony would not know in wich of his game is the flaw, or how he does access it. so, there would be nothing to patch, unless sony upload his save files from psp games, then, they try each on and find the one that works.

    I had the old PSP Slim and loved it so much with all the mods. I recently got the PS Vita and i’m on 2.0.1, but all these videos and tutorials on customizing the firmware has me LOST. Hope something clear comes out soon, cuz i’m contemplating just taking it back and sticking to Xbox and using my iPhone for mobile gaming.

    I have to go with LOStuser, what’s with this? I don’t get it. We waited and waited and nothing again but videos. I know it’s not as easy as it is but this is making us wait for so long. Oh is it true about the GTA?

    It’s hard to even find a website with consistent and organized information about the history of hacking the various FWs on the Vita, and the different types of hacks. Why some people call it jailbreak, why some hack, why some homebrew, and if its all the same. Need a site for noobs to explain all this. On PSP Slim it was so easy… I’d rather just pay a lot of money and find some sorta mod chip, but even that I don’t know who is reliable to get it from.

    we have to be patient guys. these things take time and if they just release it without doing everything necessary, our vitas could get bricked or something. if they haven’t released it yet, its only because they want this to be the best it can. just do what i did, and bust out the old cfw psp.
