PS Vita Hack: (Video) VHBL (still) running on firmware 2.11

Ah, yes, the obligatory “it still works, guys!” Video. Come on, I know you love it as much as I do!

So, to most of you if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, or if you know how Sony handles the PSP hacks lately, this probably won’t be a surprise, but The Z published a video showing that his VHBL port on PS Vita’s firmware 2.10 still runs on Firmware 2.11.

In the video below, The Z shows that VHBL runs a few homebrews perfectly fine: Wagic (come on man, only 2 expansions unlocked out of 106? You can do better than that ;) ), Masterboy – the GBA and Master system emulator – running Pokemon [insert some color here], as well as PSP Filer, probably the most useful File Manager on the PSP, and by extension, on the Vita, as of today.

Source: The Z

By the way, did you know? Half Byte Loader is now a bit more than 3 years old (if you count from its first beta release, even more if you count back from m0skit0′s first source code release back in November 2009) which probably makes it one of the most resilient hacks on any Sony platform (up there with Dark Alex’s M33 code that has been reverse-engineered and compiled so many times it’s probably gained human consciousness by now)

      There’s a new content manager update, so should I update it? Who knows if they might’ve changed the way you send and receive files.

    Still surprised that this is still alive.

    If there was a Cockroach award for any hack, this is right up there on the top.

    I’d love it a lot more if it was a kernel exploit
    I’m so hoping for a kernel-mode exploit for 2.11 or 2.10, it’s fine anyway

      Find one yourself if you want it so badly. If you’re like the rest of us mere mortals, be patient.

      Who the hell knows when. So far it’s a hard nut to crack. If it has PS3 security like, then it will probably be cracked in 3-4years.

      Imagine VHBL and TNV exploits for 4 freaking years….jeshhhhh this is becoming pathetic people you know?

      Sony is laughing their azzes at us. Damn….

    when the psp was hacked, sales became a “big awsome high”.. even with just homebrews like VHBL, the vita can increase its sales for sure..

    So basically you can get any exploit as long as you are on a lower firmware?

      sorry for the crudelty but I think you do not realize what you’re saying. if it came out the hack for ps vita the console surely fail, because it is true that the console would be sold a lot but it is also true that no developer would create games for psvita. for example, I expect only a cfw TN for the latest firmware. I hope that the hack to download games of the psvita will not come out for another three years.

    I think its a travesty that the Vita has been out as long as it has and we only have a handful of “good” games. Sony stop being a dic k and get more 3rd party game developers to hurry up and release games! You are making me constipatedly disappointed

  34. antonio’s avatar

    we will see why this is laughable and shows yna sony new update of software and within hours VHBL do you find a video of running in this update without even probrar before faults that may have safety or sony as I have since you have found new and on top of that is what my turn but the balls Tardais well over a month to put the putoi game that has the exploit but we will see souls pitcher bALLS BECAUSE yOU HAVE NOT SEEN IF FIRST loaded the ISOS / CSO wELL AS THE HOMEMBREW ETC … FIXED AND AFTER THE EXPLOIT THE INPERFECIONES BE PREPARED WHEN degas PUT THE VIDEO AND NOT SO THIS IS A POST SONY tipped off AND IS FOR JUMPING TO REMOVE THE FUCKING GAME STORE you think that people like to be looking day after day to see when it comes out the name of the game fucking clowns I poruqe computer and I have no time if I already would have done the exploit myself and when I have tried it have made ​​people aware of not earlier than real disappointment
