  3. somebody says:

    Dear readers,

    I have the following question:
    Will my installed homebrew on the PSV be lost if I upgrade it to OFW 2.06 and from there use tomtom’s exploit for VHBL?

  4. RJGO says:

    Is the game available in all regions? or is it like the last time where UNO was not available in Asia :/.

  5. Lennyvita says:

    I look forward to this release. I cannot wait to use my Vita for homebrew. Games like Wagic, emulators and other fun. The Vita is such a great system full of potential. I thank the people of the wololo forum, tomtomdu80 and all the other developers who work hard to bring us such releases. I patiently wait and thank you for bringing new life to my vita. Awesome news!!!

  6. capcomlegend says:

    thank you wololo and tomtom

  7. Acekun says:

    I have a question, i am new to all of this homebrew or vita hack and i heard there are many types…exploit,ark or something like that..
    I am on 2.05 at the moment….i want to know if this thing you talk about, VHBL, you state it cannot play psp iso, so i can only run emulators unless i use the ecfw then i can play psp games?
    So with this vhbl i cannot play any psp games? Sorry if i sound obvious..

    • wololo says:

      VHBL can run PSP homebrews. This includes emulators, and indie games such as Wagic, CSPSP, Cave Story, etc…
      VHBL however will not let you play PSP “backups”, but of course your vita will still be able to play the psp games you purchased from the psn.

  8. somebody(again) says:

    @ Wololo,

    Could you please answer my question to?
    : I have the following question:
    Will my installed homebrew on the PSV be lost if I upgrade it to OFW 2.06 and from there use tomtom’s exploit to use VHBL again?
    Will it be gone, or ..?

    Please reply,

    And thankyou for your hard work.

  9. Hydrus says:

    Question: Can I download the game on the japanese PSN and still use the exploit?

    • brunoso says:

      In the case of the uno exploit, i can remember that you can download it from any psn because the savegame will be ported yo any language – japanese includes. Just take a cofee and sit down for a while. Lula

  10. walerio says:

    How I can know this game?

  11. isnizal says:

    me dun have any money to buy game in psn…lol

  12. FullRetard says:

    How will members get to know this exploit? I really want to know what game it is. 😀

  13. Je-Al says:

    i thought i am very lucky..but when i heard that the game need to buy..HHHHMMMPPP need to wait another exploit that..when the game is free to DL in psn store..i hope you try to exploit the game….patapon,piyotama,patchwork…did you already try wololo..?

    • DS_Marine says:

      You *are* very lucky, you will be given the choice to access a ps vita exploit.
      PPl that owns a $250-300 device and cannot afford 5-10? Those deserve to wait forever. No excuses.

      • Je-Al says:

        wow wow wow..i get excited but i cant understand them all sorry im not good in english you mean..i dont need to purchase the exploit game?bro?

  14. decius says:

    Im so glad you have to BUY it. It “pays” to have a job (unless youre not 15, I understand). Thanks! TomTomadu80.

  15. MaxPower says:

    Will eCFW get ported to this exploit in the near future?

  16. gunblade says:

    nice think i got under two dallers on my psn…

  17. Sl1tf1re says:

    Tomtomdu80 était ou est sur !

  18. herriemaker says:

    haha who needs a vhbl exploit when you have a kernel exploit yourself my exploit is still working but i found some one who has the exact same exploit

  19. UraniumDude says:

    Will there be a Hong Kong version?

  20. CDogg76 says:

    The Service is undergoing maintenance. It’s true! I
    cannot browse store anymore on my system!

  21. Fatih says:

    Hey, i really wanna run this expoit, but can someone please just tell me how much money I need on my psnaccount to buy it, is 10€ enough, or do I need more?

    I ve already missed a few exploits, and just don’t wanna miss these……

    • WendsK says:

      yo estoy igual
      pero siempre tienes que tener un unos $20 en tu monedero de PSN, esperemos que no pierdas este exploit, ademas los juegos de psp no revasan los $40

    • decius says:

      The people registered to Wololo’s site will know first, then the rest of us – the public. Will find out later. Just wait for it.

  22. lennan joel says:

    how do i subscribe so i get a early notification, so i know what game to download :) need toknow i missed all other exploits please help!!!!! :)

  23. lumenia says:

    i will pass on this, i only have one vita and it must on latest FW to play online right ? #PSO2 :)

  24. Dragonxtamer596 says:

    I’ll buy a vita when a vita native hack comes out. I still wish I had one right now though.

  25. Raphale says:

    es posible que pudieran dar el precio aproximado del juego para comprar la tarjeta de monedero y estar preparado para el Lanzamiento del VHBL
    could conceivably give the approximate price of the game to buy the card wallet and be prepared for the launch of VHBL

    sorry for my bad English

  27. Ryan86me says:

    Hey, I’m just wondering – is it going to be possible to port TN-V over to this?

    • Albo says:

      yes and no
      once we have a psp user exploit we cant port tn-v over

      i think once someone gets ahold of the user exploit for the psp emulator then we r golden on porting tn-v over
      but the major problem is, sony is trying to block every possible psp exploit

      • Ryan86me says:

        Oh, whoops. I was under the impression that this was a kernel exploit rather than a usermode one, in which case there could’ve been a port. My bad.

  28. chuckyjugg says:

    Can’t wait to see what some old Nes or Snes games look like on PSV!!!! X)

  29. airol says:

    i think i have to be awake once in awhile..hate missing the next game again..hope i could get the announcement…great birthday gift then…thank you guys..tomtom…wololo…

  30. Ryan86me says:

    Hey, is it going to be possible to port TN-V to this? Just wondering

  31. Akira says:

    Dude I’m not trying to be rude or anything but why are they still making VHBL when we know now is possible to have CFW like CEF & ARK. Obviously since that has been patch over update & they have to make completely different CFW, then do it. The whole point is CFW is way better than vhbl & I wouldn’t get this VHBL. I’m sure people for now will get this better than nothing but some people will still wait for a new CFW in a few months or even a full ps vita hack in a year if possible.

    • hgoel0974 says:

      There are some things you are missing.

      We would go for eCFW if we could, this is just a user mode exploit (only partial control over the emulator). For eCFW we need a kernel mode exploit (full control over the emulator), kernel exploits are VERY rare.

      About a native Vita hack, security is getting more sophisticated everyday, it isn’t as easy to hack the Vita as it was with the PSP. Also, all hackers are people with a life, they can’t take the risk of legal action from Sony so don’t expect a public native hack soon because it isn’t legally safe to do that. The PSP had already been hacked so Sony can’t sue anyone for a PSP emulator exploit.

  32. hell_knight says:

    I hope the range between 1 to 16 dollars would be enough for the game ! looking forward to playing some cool emulators on the ps vita ! thanks tomtomdu80 !

  33. Gilbert says:

    ohh man can’t wait ^_^, I can feel a near vita native cfw coming in the 3.xx firmwares just like the psp’s with DA super excited for this 😀

  34. Dmaskell92 says:

    I would love to pay for any PSP game for VHBL. I don’t understand why people complain about a little bit of cash. Hacks are becoming more expensive, yea it’s released for free, but right now giving PSN money is the only option. I just wish I could pay the DEVs instead of Sony. On I side note, I wonder how hard it would be to reverse engineer the game cart? That could be our new Pandora for native hack.

  35. Bandi says:

    Thank you Tomtomdu80!!!

  36. Jenova's Legacy says:

    Is it under 10.00$?

  37. Gargamel says:

    With this, people will be able to play psp homebrews and emulators of older consoles (gba and the like).
    Not psp games. Correct?

    Merci :)

  38. internally_blazed says:

    Nice work Tomtomdu80!

    Im trying to find some exploits myself xD

    If you havent tested the UK version of the exploit let me know on the forums by sending me a message. I’ll be happy to buy a new game and try it on my vita.

    Best of luck ninjas!

  39. Matthew says:

    Can someone tell me how to become a member so I can get the exploited game before Sony removes it because I’m not on the computer that often because I’m grounded from both computer and PS Vita so please reply as quickly as possible.

  40. Epicsnail says:

    I really hope i dont miss this one just like the others.

  41. lolence says:

    Hi guys, i’m new on this (srry if my english is bad).

    I just want to know if the exploited game’s name will be announced in this web or in the forum.

  42. jandriu_knros says:

    tomtom thanks!
    I hope to get to see it and not miss it!

    ay time or date? I’m dying of nerves ijijijijij

  43. lennyvita says:

    @matthew you need to sign up on the forum. Up top click on the /talk forum. Sign up with email. According to wololo that is the best place to check. We all are waiting, hang in there. Once this is released i will donate for the hard work the developers do to bring us such greatness.

    • HydroFlow says:

      Same here ill match and double what I pay on psn. heck might triple it lol. So ready for this! Didnt get to crack my ps3 so really hoping to get in on this! Keep up the work TomTomdu80

  55. OneCloudGaming says:

    Would you be so kind to send the name of the game to my email:

  56. DJ SpaceBound says:

    I am kind of a noob when it comes to vita hacking, I had the UNO exploit and a few of my psp game backups on the vita but then I updated to 2.5 and now 2.6 only to be able to play COD online :/ When you guys say there is an exploit for 2.6 but only supports Homebrew do you mean we will NEVER be able to use ISO/CSO files with it or is there just not an exploit for that particular purpose yet?

    • It's Simple says:

      Only a kernel exploit can support can support ecfw.

      Only ecfw can run ISO/CSO.

      This is not a kernel exploit.
      It can only support VHBL.
      VHBL can only run homebrew.

      They’ve written front page blogs explaining this all.

      It’s possible, they said, that 2.02 was the last kernel exploit.

      • Dj SpaceBound says:

        Damn well that’s a fail (On my part for updating) but it is what it is, Thanks for the explanation.

        • Jiposphere says:

          Maybe you should consider actually purchasing games as opposed to looking for ways to download and play them illegally.

          Support the developer (and for heavens sake, don’t give me the “I want to play my UMD backups” spiel).

          • shogrran says:

            Question though, IF i can get a vita with 2.02FW, is it still possible to get the UNO game? Or is it already blocked?

          • The_Ogrenator says:

            well, what if, i really like monster hunter portable 3rd, but as i own a us based psn account, i cannot play my sweet mhp3rd, so as any other person, i would hope that this would one day be possible again, on the vita. what if the game i want to play is in a different language? i dont see sony translating those games, or publishing them over here. so people translate them, for NO INCOME AT ALL and for the good of the community. so others may enjoy them. this is what i hate so much about consoles, its mostly about profit, and not about people bettering each other as a whole, and working together to make something great. a tale of time long lost. while, this is not a post to flame you. im simply stating where you forgot. i also want to mention that the same is happening here, these people are giving up their own free time to do, something, something great if i might add, and are doing it smart, keeping it in a small controlled environment, until they can release it to the others at the most oppertunistic time so they may get the most enjoyment out of their system, without having sony ruin their fun.
