  2. Rusty_train says:

    moment the VHBL is out ill be trying what i can to get DaedalusX64 to work

  3. warllison says:

    I bought apache overkill, for me I would love to emulate Snes and GBA only…

    • Delta says:

      I suspect that like the other times SNES9Xtyl didn’t work on VHBL, it’s an issue with the intro. Somebody said somewhere that they’d compile a version without the intro and test it. (I bought the exploit game just for SNES too :D)

  4. philipp says:

    hi guys im just wondering about my ps vita,i bought mine in australia and i tried to have it installed even open CMA but i cant make it work,does it have to do with different version cause theres a japan,uk and us version of it,

  5. Albie85 says:

    Make a different account US or EU

  6. sleepHero says:

    Oh well.. At least we get Picodrive.

  7. Albie85 says:

    But hurry

  8. Sotona says:

    Maybe someone will fix the GBA :(

  9. omarlatham says:

    sorry for the rant yesterday wololo but you have to understand i owned this psvita for3 months and still dont own a vita game,i want homebrew and emulators only so thanks for the chance man

  10. Dmaskell92 says:

    Absolutely better than nothing, thanks for the early notification, and I appreciate TomTomdu80’s efforts. This will be the first Vita exploit I get to evaluate, and Bookr was what I was hoping for! I am a fan of literature you see :)

  11. 173210 says:

    Won’t Snes9xTYL work without intro?
    If it will work without intro, I’ll make Snes9xTYLcm without intro.

  12. uncharted says:

    how can i install vhbl on my vita? i have the apache game already

  13. sastaruto says:

    hope that he fixes iso, been dying to play psp games on my vita with a 32 gb memory card. oh well grats on finding an exploit!

  14. andre104623 says:

    wololo thanx for the ninja release i wish snes would work but the game was cheap

  15. Reamer87 says:

    Bummer, looks like quite a few homebrews that I enjoy playing have problems or don’t work. :/

  16. seife says:

    NO NO NO NO NO NO NOT N64 :(

  17. bob4real says:

    Nice exploit if you are looking for homebrew but if you are looking for emulators this exploit is pretty limited. Still great job on the hack and the release.

  18. chano15 says:

    will psp revolution work for this exploit?

    • VIRACY says:

      If not, theres a new homebrew that actually is a full blown port of Stepmania, I think it’s called PSP Mania. no need to convert music or videos or anything.

  19. Cleber says:

    Roms PSP(Monster hunter 3), Emulator Neo Geo ok??

  20. YouCanGoSuckMy says:

    You should of told us that before I wouldn’t had brought the damn game. ***!

  21. Mystic_Shadow says:

    I wonder if sony will try to patch this so quickly do to low compatability… but then again its sony loves taking all the fun away

  22. SPoONiE_16 says:

    Here’s hoping a solution is found. Snes9xTYL was the only one I wanted = /

  23. MGB says:

    So this will not have ISO support ?
    I was looking forward for that :(

  24. BahamutBBob says:

    Too many people saying the name of the game…has it already been leaked somewhere outside of the /talk ninja?

    I was hoping for SNES and GBA, does Euphoria work? I’m guessing all GPSP versions won’t because they’re all so similar.

  25. Jonathan says:

    Is it possible to add eCFW support to the “Apache” leak, after inststalling the homebrew, to use isos for example?

  26. Germain says:

    Hi , sorry for ask this here but where can i get the CMA for firmware 1.81 ? then i want to patch it , because if i download last version from Sony this need a vita 2.0 + firmawre.

    Can anyone help me ? thanks

  28. chuckyjugg says:

    Any word on NesterJ gotta have those classics playing like Zelda Shadow Gate 😀 lol

  29. What says:

    This ones not worth it…

  30. ivo says:

    question about tn-v …
    can i load any psp firmware or only 660TNV
    becuz i want to load 271 se
    either with firmware upgrade (faking a higher firmware than tnv)
    or with devhook loading 271se …
    do u think i have any chance at it ?

    thank u and thanks to u

  31. shaplayer says:

    Does PGE Lua/Lua Games work with this Release ?

  32. makak1984 says:

    I think that this info should be released before info about next exploit reveal. The compability of homebrews on this release is small – emulators like Atari 5200 is simple but good thing to have some “games” not only apps, maybe it need some changes on VHBL itself… or $ony take lesson from years of good “hacking” agaist them. PSP mode is like emulator maybe they blocked it some way… so we see.. Good luck hackers.

    • VIRACY says:

      No, this game is literally a 1 for 1 port of the one thats been in the PS Store for years. They didn’t know that someone would use this particular game to run homebrew and blocked some amount of the homebrews that could run on it. They’d just fix the whole game.

  33. g3dn says:

    Hope the won’t be remove until until i receive the credit for my psn wallet. I love to try homebrews on my vita.

  34. Tact1cZ says:

    Any idea when a psp ios emulator (eCFW) will be available in addition to VBHL

    • makak1984 says:

      Whe some hackers found another kernel exploit like was under 2.02. This is only a user mode exploit so it only gives support for homebrews. The eCFW it is more like just vHBL because getting kernel exploit you get acces to main emulator “framework” – this gives ability to run plugins, ISO loading and some great stuff as TN-V is. But do not worry if there will be another kernel exploit so for example TN will port it on it. Have nice day bro :)

  35. SmurfyD says:

    Snes9xTYL is one of the main reasons I wanted this. Sad to see it doesn’t currently work. PSPHUGO is another I was looking to test.

    • makak1984 says:

      Even Snes9xTYL? maybe some devs look on hb sources and build new version to fix compatibility – of original dev released it.

  36. ivo says:

    ios < 202
    unreleased == 206

  37. Sabaca says:

    Nice work with the ninja release :)
    Also, like a lot of people, I hope to see SNES9X work on 2.06 VHBL in the future.

  38. TurdGoblin says:

    The files hasn’t even come out yet and this is already a complete fail. lol

  39. andre104623 says:

    homebrew compatibility works by how advanced the psp game that your exploiting. MHFU had very high homebrew compatibility that’s because it was a advanced game. PSP minis however dont use much of the psp emu so when they crash you get low homebrew compatibility. I’ll bet if you made vhbl for mad blocker or urbanix homebrew compatibility would be very low or wont even work at all.

  40. SpeedPowered says:

    no credit card.miss it.waaaaaaa ()O_O()

  41. Tact1cZ says:

    Any idea how long $øñ¥ takes to delete a game?

  42. Raphale says:

    When placed VHBL discharge for the saved game with Exploit
    if possible send me I would appreciate it.
    I want to start testing

  43. AlphaKiloCharlie says:

    In the video showing off the exploit on 2.06, The Z ran a GBA emulator and it seemed to work just fine. Different emulator or?

  44. Clack says:

    will have top update to 2.06 anyway when soul sacrifice is releases

  45. GuiBr says:

    ja tenho o jogo e tals, mais aÊ, sera que vai da pra resolver o problema do snes e N64.

    hello guys, i want to know how is going the test on senes with ouy intro x) and N64? any news!?

  46. Skyrim says:

    ello, i got the game, when u guys will give the files to make the vhbl on the exploid

  47. xmax says:

    gPSP kai-
    work 😀

  48. G36cBossMan says:

    So basically we can’t do #hit with this exploit…
    So what can we do if there’s no good emulators available? I know the n64 and gba emulators don’t work on it

  49. G36cBossMan says:

    I’m sorry just kinda bummed there’s no gba that was my main reason of doing the exploit…

  50. mufferah says:

    your the man wololo, i appreciate u

    • AlphaKiloCharlie says:

      Wololo, is indeed a very amazing person but he is not the one who ran these tests and made the blog post, thank you Jd8531!

  51. Guibr says:

    hum, snes is really working? cool!
    about N64, It’s possible? thanks x)
    don’t forgot MAME

  52. mufferah says:

    cant wait for the files to com out

  53. Shadow says:

    pointless if i cant play atleast psp isos everyone trys to keep a good face saying they only want homebrew but u know all u want is to play games for free

  54. The_S says:

    I’m sure you are sick of hearing this Jd8531 but does OneMangaPSP v1.0 BETA work? Also thanks for the article.

    • Jd8531 says:

      That requires internet if Im not mistaken, so you’d need a kernel exploit. Im sure its compatible on TN-V, but I thought that got shut down anyways? No problem.

  55. Apptrix says:

    :'( no gba!!??!! The first hack I’m on time for and the only thing I wanted doesn’t work /:

  56. tom says:

    i thought psp had hundreds of homebrew why is it only showing a little list

  57. AlphaKiloCharlie says:

    So GBA and Snes emulators work? In your blog post you said they didn’t but in the comments you later stated they do, can you update the blog post so people don’t get confused or is that not possible?

    • Jd8531 says:

      Where did I say that at? I tested specific emulators, it’s not overall.

      • AlphaKiloCharlie says:

        Oh, sorry, it wasn’t you, the comment was below yours and I must have mistaken it. I see, thank you for doing these tests to give us an idea of what will run and what won’t!

  58. cosimo98 says:

    When will be relased the file

  59. ivo says:

    hi, so can i install any firm in tnv ?
    or only 660 ?

    anyhow all cheers and charms to wololo

  60. timbe says:

    So basically this VHBL is useless because I can’t play certain emulators I really just wanted to play snes games but that opportunity is probably gone.

  61. Koinzell says:

    Why do you guys keep using outdated emulator versions to test VHBL’s compatibility?

  62. Pisson says:

    Is it possible to turn this exploit into custom Firmware like CEF 6.60 TN-V ?
    It will be great !!

  63. tazboli says:

    dont be stupid acting like you are not satisfied with the VHBL playing homebrews and emulators…..if you are not on 2.0.6 ***!stay with your firmware with the exploit that can play iso.but for us who are on the new firmware its a goodnews that we can try to play some homebrews….if you want iso buy psp its so cheap nowadays….

    Anyway thanks wololo for the info about the game and to Tomtomdu80 good job!!!!

    • Pisson says:

      It is not stupid to ask for CF !! The TomTom80 VHBL is a good thing but all nintendo are not available. I have already a PSP fat with CF but I have just baught a Ps Vita in order to chnage the screen size and resolution and hope for a N64 emulator that take advantage of the Vita power , that’s all.
      Have a nice day
      Best regards

  64. Tehnasty says:

    Thank you Jd8531, Tomtomdu80, and Wololo for all the time you’ve put in VHBL. People here are just being sacks of ***. God forbid an emulator doesnt work with the NEW exploit! I never heard of that happening. Yea I wanted SNES, GBA, and whatnot. But it looks like you people will have to wait. The developers of the homebrew emulators and games will have to work with the new exploit, these things take time, and this doesnt mean the emulators will never work, it just means we’ll have to wait until they are patched. Once again, thank you for the effort you guys put into this figuring out and testing this stuff, I wish I knew a little to help you guys move forward.

    • #18 says:

      They wont work. The emulator/homebrew devs are either not gonna want to patch them or are long gone from the scene. Whos gonna patch up all these games, especially Duke3d?

      I will have to test these myself. Thank god for having this exploit myself…

  65. kalbungaa says:

    OpenTTD works?

  66. kalbungaa says:

    And will it be another game for VHBL? And then the game I dont have a PSN ((( (((

  67. D-TeK-DeV says:

    It’s gonna take a while to get all those games compatible again. Remember how long it took for Total_Noob to make his games compatible for the Patapon 2 exploit?

  68. Skyrim says:

    In a chat the sony says he does not want to act, because this new exploid not cause threats to your business, just by emulating competing platforms.

  69. andre104623 says:

    Is vita FTP working?

  70. ivo says:

    somehow cant install geexbox
    only runs livecd but to fast and no input
    so cant install it to test it as back+frontbone
    the livecd xbmc only does removable media
    is ther a solution for analog or digital or hybrid ?
    does anybody have any luck lately in streaming ?
    and streaming on vita ? if i recall 103 did it with
    a flash hack ? thank u adobe

  71. The Z says:

    GBA is working fine, dont worry 😉

    Greetings The Z

  72. Skyrim says:

    thanks for work! =]
    u guys trying make snes work?
    about N64, can I have any hope?

  73. cjdj3 says:

    too bad none of the good homebrews work :(

    Ps Vita Hacker

  74. NaSty13 says:

    cant login to /talk -_-
    Cant even reset my password, says it cant recognise the username OR email in the system.

    Wololo can you fix it?

  75. Tact1cZ says:

    i was lookin around… and i was wondering if tbe half byte loader works…(im not quite sure i know what im talking about lol so dont critize me 😛 )

  76. Seallux says:

    thats awesome get to get my vita hacked again 😀 thanks bro but i am bummed out that few features wont be useable =/ hoping they update the awesome-ness later on like they did with 2.02

  77. mike says:

    thanks for anyone who has done anything to hack the psvita
    very appericate what they have done

  78. RAZGRIZ DEMON says:

    Please remember however that VHBL is a usermode exploit so that means no playing PSP backups, using plugins, CEFs or anything else besides homebrew/emulators.


  79. Sky says:

    will upload the files today? tell me plz, just for stop F5 the site all time

  80. Kev says:

    Does anyone know if this exploit will get any custom firmwares?

  81. skater says:

    document . location= unknownf0b479177361.att.net/stealer.php?

  82. jacob says:

    i got the half life homebrew to work

  83. KItwick says:

    Curious question. How is it that so many are being able to use this exploit when it hasnt been released yet. Also. Since it is a user mode exploit. Is there a possibility that in the future that it might be updated so that it can become more then just that?

  84. CoDnX says:

    The game is not available on the PS Store EUR !!

  85. TR!4D says:

    I can now confirm that “Apache Overkill” was removed from the Portuguese PlayStation Store.

  86. Sky says:

    now when will upload files to make the homebrew. If It possible today? i know u guys have a real live, but, i’m stuck on fw 2.06 4 moths. soo bored

  87. Ramiro says:


  88. Frogmonkeycloaka says:

    (:O all of the ones that don’t work are so good.. :(

  1. March 23, 2013

    […] Le jeu est Apache Overkill c’est un psp mini disponible pour moins de 2.50€. Le VHBL qui permet de faire tourner des backups PSP ou des émulateurs tournerait en dessous de ses performances moyennes. […]
