    could have sworn I read this a few weeks ago on this site?

    what happened to the Christmas cfw release that was touted a few weeks back? its christmas day and still no cfw on my vita :(

    • wololo

      It’s possible you read about it either on my twitter account (I mentioned it there), or on our forum, or on another scene website. As the article says, we were a bit late on publishing the article since I wanted to get yifanlu’s authorization but I took too long to follow up with him because I was pretty busy IRL

      About the Christmas CFW release… well, I can’t say much, it wouldn’t be a ninja release otherwise

    • RagingCore

      I read that somewhere a few weeks back, I just can’t remember where.

  6. ricerrr

    Yes this was a good read

  7. T3CHW0LF

    Very interesting Article! This kind of stuff is why I enjoy mobile consoles.

  8. quetz

    you cleared all my thoughts about vita 😉 interesting article

  9. musashiro

    told ya wololo that people will find this stuff interesting.. haha. i didn’t stop reading until the last punctuation mark… 😀

    musashiro of /talk wishes you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year… :)

    (“we dropped the ball” kinda suggests something. hahaha… )

    Does this loader loads from ps mobile application? If so it will require developer license for us to run :(

    • Quade321

      Well, one might assume it could right now, however he mentions in the article it’s an exploit through a game. And of course there would never be a public release if you needed to be a licensed developer to run it. o.o
      Reminds me of the iPhone hackers. They’ll show a picture of a jailbroken iPhone or iPad or whatever the week it comes out, but they’ll mention it needs a developer license, and it can’t be released and what not. Plus they always keep extra low-level exploits up their sleeves to get dumps of new firmwares and release other exploits.
      Hope that answers your question even though I don’t know too much about all this. And hope I didn’t get off subject. :p

    Good article.
    hmmm I’m looking forward to it. 😀

  12. Raziel

    Doesn’t bother me I wouldn’t care if nothing came out for another year or two, these things are Rare and it shouldn’t just be thrown away.

  13. Jeremy Stiles

    That was very interesting, Shouldn’t a psp emulator hack be enough though? Full cfw would allow piracy and probably kill sales. At least through the psp emulation we are able to run homebrew and backups of our psp games.

  14. GcBatman

    Good stuff :)

  15. The real stupid Z

    Who fuc@king cares where is the mother fuc@ing game you as&holes

  16. j-sin21

    I wish I was a reverse engineer :S

  17. Dario Rules

    I agree with everyone here why wont these fuc$k faces release the game already they are just fuc@jing around as$$holes

  18. Tonaki

    The game has been released its s@@@l c&,””;;

  19. musashiro

    by the way, i heard the word tonakai when i watching the past of Chopper in one piece… is it somewhat related to you mr. blog poster?? :)

    apparently, i am watching the series from the start… haha…

    • Tonakai

      Amazingly you’re the first person to pick up on that. Well, at least the first to say it to me. I coined the name prior to seeing that episode of One Piece, however I instantly fell in love with Choppa so I felt the name kind of fit so it stuck.

      Also, you heard the word because tonakai is the Japanese word for Reindeer which is why he’s named “Toni toni choppa”.

      • EvilGrin

        Chopper is awesome! I’m surprised I never noticed the correlation between your user name and him hahhaaha boy, good to know that One Piece fans are scattered everywhere. We’ll takeover the world!

        • musashiro

          yah… i know that tonakai is japanese for reindeer.. thats why he is also called tony.. 😀

          good to know that i am right on the money… 😀

          • musashiro

            sorry, though i am not really a fan since last week.. haha…

            i downloaded all the episodes and watch the series from the top…

            probably the reason is that they don’t air the series here continuosly, they stop and go…

            anyway, i am now a big fan… even bought an OP shirt this xmas… haha….

  20. 200C under

    I suppose,if there’s any possibilities,we could hack CMA first and then build something like emulator on win or Mac to break the PSP sandbox on VITA maybe with the VITA connected,I just wish there’s some useful knowledge in my brain with ARM and win32 progamming,but unfortunately none……

  21. khairul

    love it…hoping he will fully hacked vita…great article Tonakai and wololo..and of course a great news..

  22. swordchi

    awesome, even though it isnt released as said, its still worht the wait.

  23. Axel

    Great post.
    I just hope the Vita will never be able to run pirated games.

    • nero

      but it does? its called EFCW.

    • Dario

      We want it to run pirated games because who wants to pay for games. This is the reason everyone bought a vita to be pirates as like you.

      • hgoel0974

        not really, though free games are a luxury but the smart people understand that piracy can kill a console

      • n1nurt4

        I bought a vita because I wanted to be able to play games on the street, in a market, or at a bus stop, etc. Never once did I think, “Oooh I’m going to pay $250 for the chance that MAYBE someone will hack it to where I can play pirated games.” Do you think piracy is cool or something? Either way, if you paid for a vita just for that, maybe you should rethink your motivations for everything you do in life?

  24. nanobot77

    hi :) merry christmas

  25. CEF CEF

    Has the CEF been released yet???? I know the Z likes to call it CEF and we should all call it now from now on. Bring on the CEF!!!!

  26. Juan Sanchez

    The almighty vita just can’t simply DIE!

    • Tonakai

      Don’t worry, it won’t. People thought the PSP would die initially, and it took quite some time for the hacks to be released. We’re incredibly lucky with the Vita, because it has the PSP Emu and with the knowledge the devs have, we’ve been able to run VHBL and even CEF through this. Of course, it’ll take some time for a full Vita hack, but it’ll be worth the wait.

  27. fairy

    ia dont whant pirate games ia only need thes to run emulator as cps2 or neogeo ia buy my on games

  28. JeoWay is working on a project called “CFU, (Custom Firmulous)” which will be a loader for games and homebrew like MULTIMAN 😀

  29. vgee

    I’ve been reading all the comments, and i understand alot of the frustration that is going arround, im not here to say:
    RELEASE it or anything..

    Im just hoping some1 can post an article that explains the situation about when its gonna get released or if it isnt and why, cause alot of people donated and they’re frustrated.

    Hope some1 can also speak in normal plain english

    • Tonakai

      Hi there, vgee.

      There has been nothing to say otherwise, so I believe it’s safe to assume that it’s still being released (though having not had contact with Frost; I can’t say for sure right now). I can understand your frustration, but it’ll be released in due time.

      From what I can understand it’s going to be a ninja release, so your best bet is to check back every few days or so.

      • vgee

        Thank you for your fast answer, cause i read alot on internet and was very confused! You cleared it a bit ip! Thanks for the effort

  30. Frost

    We will not release now they we made millions on all your idiot donations, suckers

  31. Juan Sanchez

    Yes..that guy is evil

  32. The Z CEF

    The release has been leaked so now there will be no release fuc@k you leaker.

  33. solala

    please keep the nonsense of pirating games will kill the vita …
    the vita is killing itself right now, because sony thought that having a device that is “hacksafe” is more appealing than a device with fun games…

    also the whole point of hacking is more of an art to surpass oneself and less to enable free games (which is more like a nice side effect)

  34. dee

    The game is out it’s sonic the hedghog

  35. Czarcasm

    U best not be trollin

  36. sony

    The *** z said someone hacked into his twitter and messed everything up. Yeah right ***hole liar. Just like someone stole vita its all a lie

  37. chris

  38. icyheart

  39. Cojoo

    Also to the Z and Frost go fuc$k yourselves you ***holes

  40. GlueGun

    Do’s any ask why Sony go’s here?
    i mean psp’s “SIGNED”, “sony’s part”. “slow breaze”, music plays
    in the Backround. meditate, imagine your flying,
    create a memory, using your hardware and comet to
    your blissing’s by adding hardware, “still sony’s part”. OK. I made it,
    now right block’s using see plus plus, “RIGHT!”, now make a Lisnece,
    ok!. Lisnece made, publish it!. —–> now where here!. We Want TO
