  2. JeoWay says:

    I was making an attempt to test 20 more homebrews but I went and got some nice warm open fire pizza :3

  3. loljejelol says:

  4. J_lo1992 says:

  5. 173210 says:

    s9xTYLmecm is for PSP, not ePSP.
    Test s9xTYL”cm” Mod.

  6. VictorWei says:

    Much better than 2.06 VHBL!! At least N64 Emulator works !! GREAT!!!

  7. VictorWei says:

    I heard that there is a new kernel exploit for 2.12. Is that true ?? :)

  8. Phil87700 says:

    I know that this can also play BUGZ…

    My personal favourite pass time game…

  9. aeruzven says:

    is this can play psp iso/cso games?

  10. Wickedchew says:

    but..but ..but its not available in our country..

  11. Skullboy99 says:

    Is this Exploit expensive? i dont need a Exact price but i would at least like to know if its over 15$ or under 15$

    • Acid_Snake says:

      have in your PSN wallet whatever you are willing to spend on the exploit, f it turns to be cheaper than what you have, then use the rest of the money for something else

      • Skullboy99 says:

        well i certainly hope this Exploit isnt over 15$. I sold my psp not realizing that i should’ve searched up if you can get Homebrew for the vita easily. and from what i see its not to easy to get homebrews for the vita. Also, do any of you guys know since Quake can run on this, can Quake Mods be played on it as well? such as Left 4 Quake, or Qmod, or Halo Soltitude?

  12. Dxcool223 says:

    Ya I would like to know too the cost

  13. dooox says:

    any ftp server works???

  14. Gogo says:

    Daedalus r13 + Starcraft ?
    is even possible?

    Daedalus r13 + Starcraft = No Go

  15. Evo_ExiLe says:

    Can’t wait for VHBL to come out for 2.12

  16. Brian says:

    they can’t release the name of the game because sony will remove it from the PSN store and update and patch the firmware like release FW update 2.13 and I know it’s hard to wait and I hate it too

  17. ron says:

    Can you test some versions of daedalus x64, snes9xtylmemc to see if some of them are working. daedalus x64 r777 is not the last release.

    when the VBHL come out is it possible myself to download some others versions of daedalus like r1800 to test it ? or it wont working because we have to download the emulators from your list because they are special format. Thanks for answer. SORRY it was not simple to explain, i hope you understand.

  18. manleong says:

    its enough for me if can play iso psp game D:
    hope that the 2.12 vhbl could make it

  19. kojo says:

    can it run ebooted games

  20. brunoso says:

    by what i saw the vhbl its the same of the ofw 2.06. The developer stopped to improve his source code?

    • wololo says:

      Besides making it work on the vita, nothing much has been done on vhbl to improve it in the past 12 months. The people with the skills to improve it either dont have the time or the motivation. But feel free to help :)

  21. Stuart says:

    Without pspfiler how would we get emulators and roms and such in place?

    DOes vhbl read from the save data folder directly? I suppose that would be okay..

  22. Juan says:

    I have a question wololo. If I get this VHBL in my ps vita then I won’t be able to go through the web and play multiplayer? pleace answer me

  23. Jomann says:

    can you tell us if the file of the game is going to be fuckhuge or will it be manageable? ive got a 4gb card and less than 40mb of freespace 😛

  24. hellsburn says:

    try openbor thats one of the greatest apps

  25. Sylen7Nato says:

    wow, thanks for all the testing guys…this exploit looks more promising than the last couple released…im still on 2.02 uno, but i think ill pick this game up still, just for possible future purposes…thanks again to all who are putting so much of their free time into this.

  26. Yovanni Perez says:

    Hi everyone I have a vita on 2.06 ive been keeping it there for a possible exploit like in 2.2 should I update to 2.12???

  27. maitry says:

    ola eu gostaria de saber se teria alguma custom finware pro vita 2.06 q n precise de nenhum jogo para ser instalada

  28. relented says:

    i recently noticed previously exploited games for the vita available for download, and was curios if it was possible to purchase then revert to an older firmware to use said exploit? Sorry to ask herebut legit question none the less. noticed it while running ofw 2.11.

  29. Ats says:

    And what about Frontier 1337 ??? I could hack my Vita just for this game.

  30. Ron says:

    im curious about one thing, but im not really interesting to do it. But do you know the very old psp iso loader could boot some psp iso with this 2.12 vhbl.
    i dont remember the names of these iso loader they are so old. Anyway thanks for answer.
    i dont worry too much about daedalus, R13 is running a little to slow to me but im still very satisfied with snes,nes,genesis,gameboy emulators THANKS FOR YOUR GREAT WORKS ALL !!!

  31. Hardin says:

    I don’t see any news on PSX. Should I be getting this if I’m on 2.02 (Uno) and only interested in PSX emulation?

  32. Multiboy2k says:

    Im just glad to run my precious, BOOKR again!
    I upgraded to play, Soul Sacrifice. It was worth it. But, im now looking forward to Vhbl again.
    Bookr, immediately upgrades my Vita to a device that does more than just play games.

    Thanks again Wololo for Vhbl.

  33. StepS says:

    The lack of compatibility of PSPFiler, however, is a bummer. wMenu does not have any File manager features, and that could become a problem if no alternative exists, if only to delete/reorganize homebrews.

    the latest PSPlorer is an ok alternative that always worked

  34. bruno says:

    hello being that this exploit uses the psp emulator on the vita the snes emulator, for example, will work in the same way than in the psp. i wont be able to play super metroid at his best? i only want a god snes emulator in mi vita, damn.

  35. bruno says:

    in mi psp go it dont!!!

  36. Golden Axe says:

    So….sounds like it’s tested enough to be released to me.
    will the free games from my psn network still work If I don’t update the firmware to keep the vita hacked?

  37. Flutterpony says:

    Can you test JzBMSPlayer?
    Pwease 3:

  38. Flutterpony says:

    Also, since I’ve never used such exploits before, I’m wondering if all these homebrews run in Vita’s native resolution, or does it work the same way as PSP games.

  39. GlueGun says:

    Do’s a sega emulator work?!?

  40. GlueGun says:

    Sorry, I did not see the title,

  41. GlueGun says:

    Man Wololo, there’s gonna be a lot of noobie questions,
    be ready. :)

  42. slenderman says:

    I got 2 Vita, one original version and a brand new one.. if you need a tester contact me..

    J’ai deux vita, une une d’origine et une toute neuve si vous avez besoin d’un tester contacter moi..

  44. kenny2858 says:

    Anyone know if Nazi Zombies: Portable works for this?

  45. ron says:

    OLD psp iso loader could work isnt? or it still need kernel mode ? ( first iso loaders released 5+ years ago)
    thanks for answer

  46. dont know when you guys gonna release it but pls dont put any survey web to download or passwords cause it take time just to download a file lol,reading everbody com seems it gonna release soon,im guess ever one just waiting for the new update release then the new explode arv or so,keep up the good work and have some break…

  47. one more thing,any one know how to jb 2.12 cause i got the file put dont know how to put the file in psv or it dont have any jb..

  48. HeadMaster says:

    and psn UK?

  49. Brian says:

    I want to be a tester, how can I do that

  50. Holdingmybreathonthisone says:

    Not trying to sound ungrateful or anything, but why haven’t you guys released it yet? Can you at least release the VHBL for 2.12 so we can try to find the exploit? or is it already out?

    • wololo says:

      Vhbl is open source, there is no point in releasing it without the exploit, nothing was added to vhbl itself and you can grab it from the svn or the previous release.

  51. DarkenLX says:

    Wololo How will we know who won the psn card? (anounce on twitter , Forums , blog etc..?) also when is the entry deadline for the card? and is this kernel or usermode?

  52. Devin Smith says:

    Does this one require that we buy a game?

    • Flutterpony says:

      Of course it does, at the moment there’s no other known way of running VHBL. Well, there might be one, but it doesn’t seem to be released anytime soon.

  53. ironysteeth says:

    lol filer would make manga reading stupid convenient, so thats a bloody shame. but the bookr is really cool.

  54. omar says:

    hi can you please tell how much the game would cost?

    i currently have 5 dollars in my account.will they be enough?

  55. meteor says:

    How much time do we have after ninja release?
    if sony cut off the game between the download we will lose it any way?

    • Tingee says:

      The time usually goes from one day to about a week until sony pulls the plug on the game, stay tuned for more updates if you are that cautious.

  56. rob says:

    What about a Australian release ? Is it the same as a us or eu game?

  57. gunblade says:

    think not to update my ps3 for now….might just get a new super slim if anything i guess..but tree months to the ps4 i might as well save i guess..probly get tv n sum new gear if anything a Wii U..

  58. TJ says:

    Question, any idea of when the game will be announced? It would be great to know! :)

    • Qraze says:

      it will come when it does. ninja release is just that, if a time is announced, you can bet sony would be watching that day very closely.

      have patience young grasshopper.

  59. spiderboy says:

    Great job guys

    we will stay tuned! for name of the game I hope that in the near future

  60. when will you announce VHBL when I had another uptade the ps vita?
    why I do not have ps3
    ps vita only have $ 22 on psn waiting to be buying the game but is after uptade I can not vo uses VHBL why to purchase the game has to update the ps vita you could help the day before? me the name of the game?

  61. josh w says:

    im really nooby at this sort of thing where is the download for the ps vita hbl?

  62. Robert W says:

    This is the reason I bought the vita 😀 I cant wait for the release!!! ^_^ Anyway that I could play my n64 roms?

  63. RickyD says:

    You can add Wolfenstein to the list of non working. The menu where you pick between Wolfenstein and Spear Of Destiny loads up fine, and you can move around, but you can’t select a game. All my data files for the games are where they should be. Looks like the keys aren’t getting mapped properly

  64. jaffar says:

    After i copy the GAMOCRACY ONE: LEGEND OF ROBOT in my ps vita it does not appear on the home screen so i dont know how to run the game i can find it in the setting but i can’t run it so if you can let me know what to do thanks.
