Charles and Fiddler2 Proxies are now blocked.

Some people have reported that they are having issues with Charles or Fiddler 2 Proxies, and sadly both are now blocked. This means, that if you wish to download from PSN, play games online or use the messaging features then you will need to upgrade to the latest OFW.

I highly recommend that you do not do this as all the previous kexploits have been blocked, and it seems that in that sense we are back to square one with regards to our Vitas.

Tomtomdu80 has said that he intends on releasing his VHBL port with the “next meaningful OFW”. This likely means that it won’t be released on 2.05. Please note that his is a usermode exploit, and therefore will not be able to run backups of PSP commercial games.

Many people are probably going to complain that there are no public kexploit releases planned for a period, however we have had many Kexploits given to us at no cost what so ever over the last few months which makes us incredibly lucky (and pretty spoiled too). People who followed the early stages of the PSP scene would probably agree with me that they would have killed for a kexploit within a year more so the amount we’ve had. In all, it’s a pretty positive thing as it is completely piracy-free.

So, to summarize  All proxy methods are blocked and  if you are already on 2.02 or below then do not update if you wish to be able to play PSP backups on your Vita. If you have recently bought a Vita or have updated purposely or accidentally then you will need to wait for the next port of VHBL.

      dafuq? I woulda just baught an actual PSP for all the ISO and homebrew shiz. It’s the easiesf thing in the world to hack and you only gotta pay $20 for 32GB. Plus it’s a fucking PSP, coolest handheld in the history of ever, moddable from the inside out.

      Fuck you and your 2 Vitas negro. It aint impressive, cool, smart or logical in anyway – motherfucker.

    That’s hilarious to me, so they’re actually blocking the legit homebrew users from giving them money?

    No wonder this company is hemorrhaging money like it’s going out of style, it’s just pure stupid from the top down.

    Reply

    1. Yes’s avatar

      And they are blocking non-legit users as well (people who use it for piracy). There is no way that Sony could determain who uses it for legit purposes or not, so it is natural that they just block everyone.

      Then Sony would just walk away from the console scene and say “whatever, no money there anymore” and then what do you have? One less major player and only MS or Ninten to choose from. Boycotts work well in many cases, but not for something as diverse as Sony, especially when their game division is one of their weaker links.

    If it was me with a kernal exploited psvita, I would have more fun with psp backups, (that I own) like crisis core, gta with cheats, and emulators. I said goodbye to PSN on my CFW PS3, and I would do the same for Vita. Especially if I bought the game just for hacks… Who want to actually play UNO???

    I suggest you guys build your own gaming PC’s, you guys are really getting suckered, the last home console I bought was the PS2 since it was 100x stronger than any computer at the time.

    The Xbox and the PS3+ are abusing their users making them absurdly priced dlc and paying high for online fees.

    You should get a PC download the games you want, pay only for the developers who you want to support. Play with a mouse and keyboard.

      PC’s are also much more expensive to build/maintain. You can go big (by my standards) and blow $600 on something that’ll last you two years before it starts showing it’s age or aim for the sub $300 mark (like me) and settle with a lower resolution for those 2 years before upgrading again. And what if you just have bad luck with everything?

      Then you have the laziness of developers either aiming for console quality games or laughing off the idea of proper optimization for older PC components (just LOOK at how much Mass Effect’s requirements jump from sequel to sequel). At this point PC enthusiast are just beating off to how high of a resolution they can run games at rather than how smooth it’ll run!

      PC gaming is likely the best gaming experience in most case but DAMN she’s a harsh mistress…

      And piracy really does hurt everyone. What, you think people will only pirate bad games that don’t deserve money?

    2. Dmaskell92’s avatar

      Yea, my point exactly. If I had bought UNO, it would symbolism a stepping stool, that gets me to the game, I really want to play. By purchasing it, your money is gone, and I couldn’t let a game, I purchased, only for a hack, get patched. My advice, stop the cat and mouse game yourself, forget PSN, and don’t update. If PSN blocks you from purchasing a game, then just pirate, or circumvent it with PS3. It’s their fault they are losing money. When I get Vita this month, I’m snatching up a copy of Assassins Creed 3, and plan to wait patiently, for the next exploit. Once I get the exploit, it will never touch another update. Unless ofc something new Is free, or ends the cat, and mouse game.

    I’m surprised with some of the reactions to this block. That using proxy to connect to PSN after a firmware update is nothing new. It was like this with the PS3 for a long time. It usually took a week or two before Sony blocked it. This happened every time, so it was to be expected that it wouldnt be any difference this time around.

    I have a little problem, I’ve restore PS vita system, and it restarts from default, but to activate my memory card, I have to log in PSN

    I’m aware that because of this I lost 2.02 already, with UNO and my stuff…

    But que problem is that I can’t access the memory in order to delete PSP files. Is possible to clean the exploit files, including isos, hoebrews, etc… without formatting the memory card?

    I’m afraid of losing my saves.

    I think you can go under add on data for the psps files under application data management. Under the vitas settings. I think you can delete the home brew from there. Not isos or csos as far as I know.. It comes up as corrupted data.

    mhhh sorry but i cant understand why sony is makibg it so dificult for homebrew, even for pirating. okey, i know how i sound: “sony give use the bios to pirate yor console daaaah”. But isntvit strange that even the psp sells are higher than thepsvita sells? more games are out there and at the top of it, every console is hacked in 3 minuts…its like the wii, the seling of the console was high, much games came out even thought there was many wii hacked. So am i wrong to say that if the console would be easyer to hack, the sells would be go up? I bought yearsvago the psp only cause i knewed i could flash her with a pandora akku. Sorry for the bad english, writing now with my vita.

      yes, you are wrong. I don’t blame you for being wrong because your a fuc.king moron.

      let me explain clearly:

      1.Wii have more sales no matter what Sony does. Nintendo can sell canned soup, and still outsell the PS3.
      2.Pirating does affect sales. Does not affect Wii because they sell a f.uck load.
      3.No, your a fuc.king moron. I hate when people try and use the excuse ‘pirates exist for everything, so it doesn’t matter’. Idiot.
      4.PS3 took 2+ years to hack. Not 3 minutes.
      5.Please die. We don’t need more idiots like you populating Earth. Good bye after you read the message.

    I am on 2.02 but i don’t have any of the hackable games (the exploited ones for 2.02). The question is: ¿Does it worth to stay on this shit, if i don’t have any of the mentioned above? ’cause i haven’t been able to transfer any content (originals or homebrews) with OpenCMA (since i’m too noob). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
