    When I but a homebrew and I run VHBL I Still error ”Error! Couldn’t find any homebrews in ms0:/PSP/VHBL/ Please check your config file and/or restart VHBL” and I have but homebrew.

    Game U.S. 2.12

    • Wenuz says:

      I do not but homebrew

    • BigPimpin says:

      Try reading the article when you download VHBL. It says clearly to hit L1 to bring up the save files. From there you click on them to install, then the next time you load the exploit just pick the app you want to run

    • wololo says:

      @wenuz: breathe deeply, focus, and read the article again.
      Or press left trigger.

      make sure you have winrar install on your computer and then right click on the homebrew you wanna zip and click on the option add to archive and change the name of the file to INSTALL.ZIP and click on the zip option and go down and it should say normal change that to store and it should work now i was having the same problem

  8. evilevoke says:

  9. geo says:

  14. evilevoke says:

    @wololo any help ? files install but don’t show up on my ps vita

    • phil87700 says:

      Press L (shoulder button) when on the VHBL page to see the installed games/homebrew.
      i.e after you you install the same.
      And R (shoulder button) to go back to savedata folders..

  23. owanef says:

    Holy *** Prometheus Iso loader is working but how do I get iso on my vita any ideas??

  24. ryan says:

    My literally going crazy here im installing emulators and no roms work im going to give up and sell my vita @wololo please help

    • RickyD says:

      There’s a number of reasons for roms not to work. You could be using a bad set. You could be using a no-intro set without headers. You could be missing your system BIOS file which has to be added in manually since it’s illegal to distribute it with emulators

      You give no info about what emulator or what roms you’re using. I take it you’re expecting people to guess what the problem is? Give me a minute to check my crystal ball and I’ll get back with you

  25. owanef says:

    All I have to do now is get my little brother’s psp and use adhoc file transfer to transfer his iso folder to my vita and bam I got psp iso yeahhhh

  26. evilevoke says:

  36. Zaca PiPo'S says:

    PSP2600 not work. Error C1-2858-3.

  37. Carlos says:

    The CPS2PSP works fine, but, unfortunaliy, dont charge roms.. Just me or somebody have same problem?? The homebrew show the roms, but, after charge, appear ”could not open cache file”..

    Daedalus R13 dont show to install, in VHBL.. Sad..

    Im using PSP Vita 2.12 with Gamocracy exploit..

    • Dante69 says:

      You need a program to help you make cache files for the games you want to play. They usually bundle the program with the emu.

  38. Haze7 says:

    Why don’t you just exploit an indie game?

    Sony needs permission from the dev before removing the game. So the dev could be someone you know….

  39. usernameno1willtake says:

    ive made sure of the on multiple homebrews but still not having any luck. i uncompressed the rar file zip archive and store, CAP INSTALL.ZIP tossed it in a game save and no luck thats all correct right?
