VHBL: The Z’s exploit only available in EU stores, release postponed?

We’ve mentioned recently that The Z is in possession of a PSP user mode exploit in an undisclosed game, and that he has a VHBL port ready for the game. A few days ago, The Z shared some good and some bad news…

VHBL is a PSP homebrew loader for the Playstation Vita, a tool that allows you to run PSP homebrews inside the PS Vita’s playstation emulator. VHBL has the particularity to only require a psp user mode exploit to run, and was designed to be as easy as possible to port, but its low entry bar also comes with limitations (it will only run psp homebrews, not plugins or isos).

The Z had announced a few weeks ago that he has a running port of VHBL, and he confirmed recently that his port is complete, and could be released any time soon.

Sadly, the PSP game he uses as a vector for his exploit is only available in EU stores (and Australia), in particular it is not available in the US or in JP. This means that only people with an account in a European location would be able to use this exploit. It’s relatively easy to set up an account in another location and to buy PSN credits, but Sony has made it a pain to switch between accounts on the Vita.

The Z announced he would probably release his port for a future Vita firmware (not 2.1x), depending on the importance of releasing a VHBL port at the time (which I understand as: if something better comes up, such as a new release of CEF, he will probably not bother)

      I do agree. I am definitely pleased with all the work done to the uno exploit. I have collected all exploits available and still feel fortunate for whwt has been provided at the current cost :-) . I am actually going back to school for coputer science and hopefully will be able to contribute at some point in the future. Thank you to all the devs that invest there time.

    I’d actually care more if it was a kernel mode one..

    its better to release both kernel and user mode exploit even its for EU account only than nothing. new vita owners at least will have an experience playing PSP games/isos in their Vitas.

    I think he should keep it for later as its only a VHBL so very limited to what you can do anyway and as its only in the EU store its even more limited to the users of it.
    Wait and maybe he will find a way to turn it into a kernel exploit on a later firmware maybe then release it.

    The last vhbl exploit for me did nothing as everything I tried failed to run.
    I will now wait for those kernel exploits where they let ISOs run. Thats what I’m after and waiting for.
    Thats coz the games I run via ISOs are banned in my country so I have no choice but to run them as ISOs. I cant buy them in the PSN store or in the local shops. If they unban them I will gladly buy them.

      This is actually a pretty good idea, though it obviously depends on if the Z is aware of any coming CEF releases. It could help out some EU people after whatever kxploit firmware game is pulled, although it would still probably be limited to people with PS3′s or two Vitas since Sony is pretty quick to push out a mandatory firmware upgrade after each kernel release.

      Depending on how many Vitas he has, though, he might think a personal current firmware VHBL is more useful than an extra game for CEF for a few hundred or thousand people.

    As for me I am very happy I had to update to play my new games sadly so I lost my UNO exploit, the worse part for me
    is the emulators but that’s all. thought that a New TN-V in firmware 2.20 would be good.

      so you have two PSVITAs and one of them you use it for playing PSP games….Wow you’re wise!, i wouldn’t have thought it before… you genius.

      1. mlc’s avatar

        Plenty of people who were big on PSPs ended up buying multiple… it’s a bit of a waste, but if you can afford it and still pay your bills and eat, it’s not much more wasteful than multiple TVs or any other piece of electronics.

        Also a hacked Vita is basically like a super fancy PSP – it can’t be matched in display quality by the cheaper alternatives, so at the moment it is the “ultimate” PSP. ;p

        That’s a pretty simplistic response there. I actually use it to play my current Vita games too.

        And on the topic of genius, if you’re gonna go off slagging others’ intelligence quotients, you had best reflect your superior I.Q. in your writing. On that point you fail, and badly.

        Until now, Freemy, the only copying I’ve done is my entire library to my new Vita. I made a backup of my 2.02 Vita and the restored games ultimately played fine on my new Vita once I activated the console to my account and that activation registered on the memory card.

    i have followed wololo since the earlier vita days and thought that u guys are the only one working on the vita exploit, i just came from china and the philippines and damn guys.. i can completely play and import psp games cso/iso on my vita without buying anything from the ps store, i paid 20$ for the exploit and they said that the vita game hacks will be available soon.. i dunno, i’ve searched the net frequently for any new hacks but never found any, i guess they kept it from the public or something

      I call BS. If such a method existed in stores in China, it would be all over the web by now. These “jailbreak” stores in china and the Philippines only resell other people’s work, there’s no secret for them to keep.

        LOLOLOLOLOL – Why would someone sell others work? I saw a video of a Japanese video game store installing CFW on this guys PSP and a game for like $40.

        The guy wanted them to explain what they were doing and they said “Well, we have to unlock your Bootldr, and hack your psp with our special CFW.

        You could also clearly see that it was someone elses work. Given the fact that they talked like they barely knew how to put the CFW on the MS in the first place :p

    I have one question. Is there any possible way to transfer a Downloaded PSN game to the Vita other than through the vita itself and the PS3? I still have my vita running 2.05 and was planning on using the 2.06 exploit. Do I still have a shot? or would I have to wait for the next exploit?

    1. FreemyVita’s avatar

      Download the game with the exploit then refer to the tutorial on upgrading to specific FW.

      1. Tonystarx90’s avatar

        Will this even work for the 2.06 exploit? The vita is on 2.11 right now i think? I don’t wanna spend money on something that absolutely will not work. It’s cheap I know, but I would rather risk my money on something that MIGHT work, rather than WON’T work.

        Thanks for the answer by the way, FreemyVita.

        no that wont work bc the game checks your fw during the booting process

    one back up your data threw openCMA.
    two make sure you check your whole data, see if somethings missing.
    Three format your Memory Card.
    Four Connect Your Formated Memory Card to your older firmware version
    Five Connect That one. :)

    wouldnt it be funny if this was posted just to see how whiny and grubby and selfish we all are? Im bummed a little cuz im in the U.S. and im into my Snes and gba emulators and hexen and stuff, meanwhile everyone else is whining about a kernel exploit. gee how many people read the rules here? keep calling the People who are doing this selfish and see what happens…….i dont have the time to get into finding exploits and causing crashes because i a full-time student and dad, but i support this scene and i love how people devote time to things like this becasue they love, not because they want recognition or the want to be cool. And who cares about whether paypal donations are accepted? Im an Artist and im trying to sell my work too but its only whos interested in supporting me, its the same with Programming for homebrew, its something they love so if yo want to support them do it and if you cant or dont want to, dont whine about it. :)
