    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    one more

    • ScoobyDoo says:

      Sorry to be a noob, but why do you write “one more”.

      Also, my vita is version 1.61, would I be wise to upgrade to 2.6 or should I stay on the lower version?

  2. Raphale says:

    WOOO one more

  3. Raphale says:

    wololo, is the vhbl you have going tol delay its release?

    • Dmaskell92 says:

      Non scheduled, unexpected ninja release, is the most effective. You don’t want Sony to have an ETA, because they patch everything.

  4. SteelWolf89 says:

    The Z should save it for the next firmware update, As the current one soon to be publicly released will serve the same purpose.

    I’m personally hoping we eventually get another kernel exploit that can be released after a MAJOR firmware update.

    also, i’d be willing to pay Coldbird to finish his work on decoding and re-implementing the Media Engine, as the drama that eventually caused him to leave the scene was just straight up unbelievable, and we could REALLY use his expertise at this point.

      yeA after a major one

      • Hugo_Mundo says:

        I agree with SteelWolf.
        I think The Z should wait until a more significant update is released.
        One thing that i’ve noticed though is that SONY is now enforcing updates througout the psn games. I’ve bought Nun Attack, downloaded it on my PS3, and when i’ve copied it over to my 2.02 vita and opened it the game gave me an update message.
        Now i can’t even play the games I BOUGHT on the firmware that I WANT to.
        SONY, ***?!

  7. J3LACK--EAGLE says:

    yea he should wait for the next firmware release so we can get new features and theres already a exploit on this one so why dont you just release tomtom’s exploit then One the next update release the z’s

  8. Yuu says:

    Awesome work z, please keep us updated and i also agree wait until next major firmware drops to release but ultimately it is up to you ;)?

    The future looks promising for all our Vita’s, very nice.

  10. gunblade says:

    the home button looks nice on the white models.. wasent there more color vita coming out or sumthing… oooh n um the 4g models wouldent they be differnt from the current vitas but more like the slim ps3…

    • stOneskull says:

      sony should release a spiderman ps3 and vita with a new spiderman game that can be remote-played, cross-played, etc.. or even a south park version when the new game comes out.. anyway, yeah.. would like to see some other versions.. japan does have some other colors coinciding with their price drop.. so we’ll probably see them too.. or you could order one from japan

    • E says:

      The other colors (red, blue, etc) were released mainly in Japan, I believe. For now at least.

  11. gunblade says:

  12. joyeop says:

  13. vhblfans says:

    good job.The Z should save it for the next firmware update.

  14. Dyzy7 says:

    vhbl does not seem too tempting, what are the chances that in future be replaced with eCFW or ARK ?
    should i’ll wait for a eCFW / ARK?

  15. Rusxaker says:

  23. mkc88r says:

    great job Z,thanks guys for all

  24. AlphaKiloCharlie says:

    I remember the blog post talking about the limited amount of exploits coming out and how it might be the end of Vita exploits, now we already have 2 that are known to be released. Thank you Wololo and all the other developers that take there time to find these exploits and release them!

    • Not Sure says:

      I got the impression those were mainly talking about Kernel exploits.
      (A much rarer type which plays psp isos.)

      This homebrew-only kind is still rare enough to space between updates, but another ARK/TN may not come for a long time if ever.

      I believe that’s how they explained it.

  25. francis says:

  26. Akira123 says:
