    When I bought the game , I thought I can run ISO games.
    So noob at this :(
    But I am going to play some cool homebrews instead :)
    Thanks.

    • gunblade says:

      was thinking about that to since its a vita but then i started fixing my 3000 psp so i prety good on psp backups..probly mod new speakers and media storage

  2. benjiTK says:

    As always, thanks for the heads up! This is the first title I’ve been able to grab, so I’m very hopeful PSP-ISO compatibility gets ported in at some point.

    • internaly-blazed says:

      PSP ISO/CSO will never be ported to this, That requires a Kernel Exploit.

      • JeoWay says:

        IF a kernal exploit is found, it can be ported to the game.

        • #18 says:

          Not to this one though. Jeez, you guys dont understand!

          • ZgamerR says:

            You don’t understand* If a kernel exploit is made, it will work in any exploited game before the one that the kernel exploit cam out with (if it does).

            There is no public kernel exploits right now for the psp but there are some, just hidden as they are very rare to find

      • benjiTK says:

        “Historically, when a psp kernel exploit is released, the exploit gets backported to older user mode exploits, and maybe that will happen too, or maybe no new psp kernel exploit will ever be released after the 2.02 CEF/ARK series.”
        -From in the damn article. Jeez you guys.

    • ROFL says:

      lololololololol failure

  3. Cammax says:

    Can’t wait for it to get removed! But may I ask why it needs to be removed from the store in the first place? This is my first exploit, sorry for the questions!

    • wololo says:

      It’s just that historically we assumed Sony would be less confident to remove the game from their store if they didn’t have any proof of the hack.

  4. knipknap says:

    … Apache Overkill PSP Mini have not been removed from the europe market… Also not in the ps vita shop, I buyed the game yesterday in the netherlands …

  5. compccs says:

    Looked on the web based store since I’m at work right now and couldn’t find Apache … didn’t come up at all not like reported on the euro store that it gives an error when trying to purchase… don’t quote me on it but I didn’t see it … 10am est here

  6. Ronin says:

    After i bought the game what are the chances that the game is updated from my vita?

  7. dopefish says:

  13. knipknap says:

    chuckyjugg The game is still in the shops in us? People buy the game now!,

  14. StepS says:

    I’m a bit confused… I remember that months ago, Acid_Snake has stated that it would offer “a pretty good homebrew compatibility, not so many exploits provide this”. now I see that it’s in fact the opposite.
    ?

  15. Seto says:

    I just want to play gba and snes. hopefully these emus work!!

  16. Darky says:

  18. BeastyX says:

    Thanks To The Amazing Effort Put Into All This We Have Life Breathed Back Into Our Device. People Never Stop To Put Into Perspective The Time People Take Out Of Their Life To Make This Happen Its Not Magic Its Dedication And Determination. Perfection Takes Time And I Imagine There’s A Lot Of Trial And Error Remember Patience Is Key.

  30. GamerMjm says:

  32. chuckyjugg says:

  35. MIAMIRICAN305 says:

    1:34PM Tuesday March 25, 2013 Miami, FL. Checked PSN for Apache Overkill and saw that it has been REMOVED. Thank god I got my copy before it was too late! LoL

  36. Cammax says:

    in the US store i can only find it if i search for it! It is being removed! yay

  37. Cammax says:

    Nevermind if you click the game it says it was removed :) FIRST EXPLOIT FOR ME CANT WAIT!!!

  38. Z says:

    Checked PSN store at 11:42am( GMT -8). Game still listed, but when tapped( using a Vita), it says “This content may not yet be for sale or is no longer for sale”

  39. kenny2858 says:

    When I looked it up it there… but when I chose the game (Apache Overkill) it gave me an error. “This content may not yet be for sale or is no longer for sale (NP-2247-5)”

  40. andre104623 says:

    The game has been removed from PSN and my download list

  41. miamirican305 says:

    1:55pm 03/25/2013 Miami, FL. The game was removed for PSN (US)

  42. icedoc says:

    so if the game gets patched will the vhbl still work if u have it already?

    • tinostar91 says:

      Sony don’t patch games, they usually fix it with new fw update so the only way how you can keep your exploit is that you will not update

  43. hell_knight says:

    Yup the game isn’t in the US store. Even if you can see it, while you click it you will get a message reporting that it isn’t there anymore.

  44. SmurfyD says:

    Yep just checked and the game is no longer listed.

  45. Ookamixz says:

    it got pulled out of the US store

  46. chriscook says:

    the game has been pulled from the U.S store

  47. icedoc says:

    the game has been pulled from us stores we get it. how about releasing the vhbl comments now lmao.

  48. Finn says:

    Apache Overkill down from the PSS of Mexico ;)

  49. DiabloNocturnia says:

    Got the game on Friday on the eu store thanks to the ninja release. Just want to thank you guys for the heads up. Great work and thanks a million :)

  50. Dmaskell92 says:

    You officially have my word, Apache Overkill is no longer in US PSN. It’s amazing you can mention any game here, without even releasing the files, and they pull it! Ha wololo if you ever hated a software company you could place hoaxes, and watch games disappear! It is probably safe to release the files now. It’s so entertaining I live on this blog :)

  51. qsdakid014 says:

    they just pulled it from the us store good thing i got it 2 hrs ago

  52. decius says:

    I liak VHBL.

  53. Shawn says:

    Its been pulled from canadian server

  54. brunoso says:

    Why we need waiting for the game is pulled to get the exploit files? Anyone can explain about it?

    • The_S says:

      This is what Wololo said to another similar post.
      “It’s just that historically we assumed Sony would be less confident to remove the game from their store if they didn’t have any proof of the hack.”
      This way people have time to buy the game before it’s removed.

  55. miamirican305 says:

    Okay!!! So the game was removed from the PSN store! Bring out the Exploit FILES!!! LoL! I’m working my fingers to a nub from refreshing my page every 5 secs.

  56. lightningmanic says:

    …but please keep in mind that we have a real life to deal with too

    Totally respect that, Wololo – looking forward to the files release!

    • miamirican305 says:

      I don’t know… You guys claim you know the reason why the file hasn’t been uploaded yet and it’s “Cause people have lives and are busy” As I see on the latest feed, He wasn’t to busy to post another article…. “Amazon One-Day Video Game Deal: 30% Off of Tomb Raider, and other discounts” Maybe there is another reason that the files aren’t uploaded yet…. Hmmm…. This sounds pretty sketchy if you ask me.

      • wololo says:

        The sketchy thing is that you haven’t seen that we released the files 2 hours ago already :)
        For the record, it takes longer to write the “how to run” explanations, update the VHBL page, prepare the zip, triple check that the files work, and post the related article, than it takes to write a single blog article.

  57. FedoraFlow says:

    The game was removed from the US store. Just checked.

  58. Dockotis says:

    I was debating on updating from 2.02 UNO exploit to 2.06 AOK (Apache OverKill), but so far I feel that I’m better off where I am… I guess this would help out those that missed the UNO release or accidentally/purposefully updated their Vitas to use PSN… Until something good comes by, or a new good Vita game comes out, I’ll stay right where I am…

    If a new Sonic the Hedgehog game came out (seeing how the past few games were awesome again), I would update for that!

  59. Roberto Camarena says:

    ITS BEEN PULLED FROM USA STORE! :S Uff! im luck, i had it before :)

  60. knipknap says:

    hahaha the game have been removed from the dutch marked haha but i buyed yesterday so i’m dam lucky hahaha “)

  61. timbe says:

    Its off the USA psn.

  62. GamerMJM says:

    The game was pulled off every psn store over an hour ago.
    Please release files, I appreciate you guys who are testing,developing and releasing :)
    Thanks for this :)

    • SEbas says:

      Ehem… i think that they know how to do their work, stop asking them to upload the files, just wait and do other things in your real life.

  63. knipknap says:

    Yea i’m with gamermjm release the files now ;-) good work guys.

  64. newrcc says:

    Out of US PSN NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!

  65. pjdevaney says:

    im going insane

  66. HydraulicElf says:

    I want the files sooo bad.

  67. Edzo says:

    Looks like its gone on the US store for me. 5:44 pm est

  68. Kelsi says:

    I updated my 2.02 uno exploit to 2.06. As much as I loved using xmb I gave into online gameplay, I will wait for the next major ecfw, but I will always be excited for the vita cfw aswell. Any ways happy gaming everyone :D

  69. BearVodkaBalalayka says:

    the game has been pulled from the Russian PSN as well.
    Happy vodka to everyone!
    Sincerely, BearVodkaBalalayka

  70. MovingxTarget says:

    Just putting it out there these people have damns lives.They probably will be doing a night release or something.Give the people a break.They shouldnt even release it because of some of you ignorant bastards.

    Give them time.

    -The Target

    • Elvss says:

      So we should all be punished for what a few say. . .

      Seems legit

    • Tjoeb123 says:

      Not necessarily. Some people, like me, might want to hurry up and get the hacks on our Vitas before the inevitible FW update is released, preventing people from accessing PSN (and therefore, Disgaea 3 for me) unless they do so.

      But seriously – why the heck can’t Sony just open their OS and let us do whatever the heck we want with it?

  71. terriblygrey says:

    Wololo should add a like/dislike button to rate comments.

  72. artmaze7 says:

    Wololo posted on his twitter that he is on a train to work. He might not post it for a while. Chill out everyone. Wololo has a life too. : P

  73. dan says:

    what does wololo stand for

  74. poop says:

    i am sooooo fing bored of this

  75. synapze says:

    Until a kernel exploit comes out (if one does), I’ll stick with my 2.02 Uno exploit running TN-V. XMB is seckzy <3 Keep up the great work everyone.

  76. Julian says:

    Ummm…. they took Apache Overkill off like 9 hours ago and no exploit files

  77. ZunnerX says:

    The game is removed on the USA store. it´s time to download the files!!!

  78. 3DSGuy says:

    The game is no longer on the USA/UK/AUS/EU Stores. Time to release the files I think.

  79. Tact1cZ says:

    i confirm apacheoverkill is no longer available in canada

  80. Already removed from US PSN store

  81. chidreams says:

    okay where the save game ? how are all there people show these demo of it but no links ?

  82. Jhonny says:

    No longer available in US PSN!

  83. elvss says:

    EVERYONE GO TO WOLOLO’s TWITTER AND YOU WILL SEE HE IS NOT AT HOME ON THE COMPUTER SO HE CANT RELEASE THE FILES YET.

    • Tjoeb123 says:

      …but what if he has the files on a USB stick, and it’s with him?

      • Tjoeb123 says:

        Well, looks like I was half right. He DOES have the files, but he’s not going to post them from work. He feels bad enough Tweeting from there.

        But seriously, why can’t someone else (particularly Tomtom himself) post the files instead?

  84. Cammax says:

    Guys go here —-> twitter.com/frwololo That is why there is no download yet :/

  85. Link652 says:

    I know i bought Apache Overkill when it was on the PSN store, i got it when i still had my psp GO, now the mini is noth showing up in my download list and i find that just creepily bothersome.

  86. Tox says:

    Uno is back on the PSN store i hope there can be another exploit with it lol

  87. Kitwick says:

    Personally. If i were them. Id say sorry no not going to release it due to everyone bugging the heck outta it. Be patient everyone Rome wasnt built in a day

    • Tjoeb123 says:

      We CAN be patient, but it’s pretty much a race at this point. Who will make the next move – Wololo or Sony? Some of us have stuff we plan to purchase and download to our Vitas (for instance, Disgaea 3 for Plus members such as I), which will of course require the latest FW.

      Personally, I don’t plan on keeping for more than a few hours at most. I just want to get it, do what I need to do (replace a Vita-loaded PSP game’s EBOOT with Phantasy Star Portable 2’s EBOOT – and yes, I purchased it myself, over PSN), then remove the files, update, and continue on….until someone comes out with tools that allow me to rip the anime cutscenes from Persona 4 GOLDEN.

  88. Tokyo630 says:

    Pulled from US PSN, checked at 12:22AM Mar 26, Central Time

  89. jacob says:

    i really wish they could find one that we didnt have to pay for i keep maxing my credit card evertime there is an exploit

    • smitty88oh says:

      You keep maxing out your credit card over a $3.00 game? Seriously? Must be a new type of credit limit I am not aware of $3.00 credit limit. That’s like the funniest thing I have ever read..lol..

  90. LuKe_AA says:

    I really hope there’ll be a kernel exploit with this game sooner or later.

  91. DeathOfChaos says:

    I kind of hope that as long as people keep asking for the exploit files, the longer they’ll take to release the files. Impatience deserve it and hopefully it would teach people to stop being that way. As for me, I’ll wait for a kernel exploit. :)

  92. I can conferm that it was removed on the US store :'( sad too cause I just got paid lol and I was really waiting for this

  93. Kianthos says:

    Okay so. Im a playstation plus member. I just want to make sure to be honest if i upgrade or not. This exploit is a user mode one right? That means that cannot access enough to run the ps1, psp and psvita roms correct?

  94. VWVictor says:

    Where is the file !!!!

  95. shogrran says:

    well… i’m just waiting for someone to come up with CFW. VHBL is nice and all but I doesn’t really serve my purpose.

  96. n00bBl3sSeR says:

    got credit card blocked dam!!sucks.

  97. dr Gamer says:

    Its obvious that mr Wololo wants to maximize the number of clicks before releasing the files. He will have to release them today though, to keep credibility at a high level.
    Thank you for your good work anyway!

  98. Ace says:

    Man…it sucks that the game is not available in psn asia store singapore…sucks really…but the vbhl is awesome news..xD
    I hate my place store..!!!

  99. Sky says:

    bro , can any1 help me found Bios for Gpsp

    • Someone Else says:

      1) You need to buy a GBA.
      2) Hook up GBA to PC using cable.
      3) Use the tools (just google) to extract the Bios files
      4) Use with Gpsp!
      5) Play backup games that you own.

      Pretty easy, but the cable is hard to find nowadays.

  100. tone says:

    need help wit 2.06

  101. Scott says:

    I purchased the Apache Overkill on my PS3, and today i tried to copy it to my vita and it wont let me… is there a way around this??
