    NICE good job
    Please publish about how long distance?Every day I wait

    Hong Kong PSN can USE?

    If you can answer me thank you

  3. Michael says:

    thanks wololo, I hope you succeed 😀

  4. notauser says:

    Are you certain that the game isn’t the same one as TN’s? It would really suck if the game was pulled for a usermode rather than a kernel.
    I’m going to assume that you guys are in touch and I’m just a little paranoid.

  5. FishSticks says:

    Eww usermode…

    It this going to be a Ninja Release too?….
    I hope S Gravity & Bugz work on this one…
    THanks to you guys… :-)

    • D-TeK-DeV says:

      EVERY usermode/kernel exploit will be a ninja release. You don’t want kids scattering all around the place yapping the name of the exploit before it’s released.

  8. francis says:

    thanks in advance acid snake. i wl be waiting for drealease!

  9. brunoso says:

    Now im feeling like a clown. I bought the apache, then the gamocracy. Now we get another game exploit. Why, a said why, we dont work in a native exploit? We are chaising our tail like a dog… we need able to manager psimg files….

    • AMD says:

      There IS NO NEED to update. Seriously, NO NEED.

      Sure, staying on older firmwares for VHBL makes you lose access to PSN, BUT the moment you update to get another VHBL game … You are stuck on that firmware. It’s circular logic to keep updating …

      I honestly don’t get people like you.

  10. Me says:

    That last bit about rewarding people for finding the most leaks. Be careful with that; you just might encourage people to leak the info just to get the card.

  11. Rabbio says:

    GJ acid_snake, and thx to wololo to tell us.
    How about JP PSN, Will the exploit comes with EU vision?

  12. x-eye says:

    Sooo you guys release vhbl Sony patches it in an update. Vhbl-update. Vhbl-update. Vhbl-update. Vhbl-update. When is this gonna end? I’ll tell when: when consumers in UK and US have to pay $400 for a single game. Then we will see a unified gaming community that will support the hacking community and send a message to companies that they can’t continue to rip off consumer. Right now the gaming community is divided into 2 groups people who live in developed countries/or are economically well off; and people who are economically challenged. The latter supports vhbl and, let’s face it piracy. The former says ‘if they can’t afford games let them eat cake’. What i got from reading about the recent mess with apple and the e-publishers, is that they were overcharging for e-books. Maybe the question we should be asking is: are we being overcharged for games?

    • D-TeK-DeV says:

      When making a game for the Vita, you have to know the vitas engine and all its capabilities. The Vita is the first handheld system that allows you to use the back touch pad and it’s multi touch screen. You will need some mighty fine developers to make these games and even they have a hard time getting the game to work correctly on the system. If you put yourself in a developers shoes, you will notice that these Vita games take a lot of work and you would want your work to be above $29. I don’t know who the heck put the price on Declassified. That looks like a game you could get for $5.99 on ipod with all of its features.

    • predator says:

      … look, I don’t want to rape you, but you’re really forcing my hand here.

      … aw f*ck it. forget it, bend over and let’s party.

  13. murxx says:

    Does this mean we should already start downloading a certain game?
    Has the games title been released somewhere?

  14. Deagle275 says:

    Hope to get this along Rayman Origins :)
    , hey acid_snake , is it a mini or a full game?

  15. MovingxTarget says:

    Wait but than if we get yours we wont get the higher memory mod in Totals kxploit :(

    He said 2.12 and lower will have access to the higher memory

    • Acid_Snake says:

      like I said in the forums, if you already have 2.12 VHBL and want high mem, simply don’t update. This exploit is for people who either want to be on latest firmware or simply missed out on the previous exploit. All I want is for as many people as possible to be prepared for TN-V4, and Gameocracy simply wasn’t good enough as it was only on US store.

  16. Gyugyu says:

    Hey guys, I’m new to this vhbl stuff, can U plz help me, how shall I get started? As far as I understood, there will be a game, that I shall download, and what next? I want to play P_mon, do I need something else than the released game?
    Thankx for your help!

  17. arkh says:

    Thank you!

    I only hope to be lucky enough of getting the game before sony removes it. usually i arrive always late :(

  18. CrzyLegz says:

    so what is the difference between a usermode exploit and a Kexploit?

  19. PS_VITA_2012 says:

    Hey Acid_Snake ,
    what you’re doing is more than just great work !
    You and the others like T_N , wololo and all these are heroes for the scene. Hope to see the ninja release and download the game out of the Eu store before it gets banned.

    Also waiting for the new TN-V release with the (usable?) kernel exploit :)

  20. m1k33 says:

  21. compccs says:

  25. alpmaster says:

    Thanks Acid Snake I love you man you Rock very informative but I was wondering what compatility issue effect Gamocracy? All the main emulators I care about work is it possible we might get 64 MB access?

  26. Yanox says:

    Hi, good news for the peoples on 2.60

    @Acid_Snake, I am on 2.12 with GOLOR exploit, you suggest me to stay on this FW ?

    And since when you possess this exploit?

    Thank’s for answer.

  27. Ryan says:

    Oh cool so this will be able to play isos?

  28. CNmoosky says:

    I am looking forward to it

  29. XSpalter says:

  30. bflauzino says:

    oooooooh so just reply this pls
    clarify for me… i need update for 2.60? i just have the gamocracy so if update i lose the vhbl access. so i need this new exploit because wololo said this its a lot better.
    tnv wont work on gamocracy? the new update work on gamocracy?
    sorry about this sh@! english im brazillian and i work hard on woman with biquinis on ipanema beach and forget the language

    tks guys

    • Lyian says:

      TN-V4 Will work for all firmwares below the firmware which updates “fixes” the exploit. If you have a firmware with an expolitable game, just stay, or update for the features.

      Pro -> Update to get features for the Vita which introduces Sony

      Contra -> With 2.12 and below you will have access to more memory. Which means you can load and play more “complex” homebrews.


  31. I think I'll wait says:

    Assuming TN-V v4 uses a different game for its exploit, I think I’ll pass on this one. No need to buy 2 games from PSN. Thanks for your work though Acid_Snake.

    • Acid_Snake says:

      the kernel exploit used for TN-V4 can be backported to any usermode exploit. The key is to have an entrance point -> usermode
      from there on it doesn’t matter if you have a different game, the kernel exploit will be the same

  32. AliFOJ says:

    Tell me whill this kernel exploit support the VHBL on 2.12? Or will we need the new VHBL for 2.60?

  33. S1NFUL says:

    Great article, Acid. I just wanted to ask if (if you’ve already tested this homebrew) the latest version of Daedalusx64 works on your usermode exploit?

  34. BahumatLord says:

    Can you clear something up for me? I have the 2.12 Gamocracy VHBL exploit and I’m happy with it. I have no need to update for any game or anything like that. You say the new exploit is better as far as compatibility. Basically I’m waiting for the new kernel exploit. Can you give me a straight answer yes/no if I should stay where I’m at and not pick up the new exploit you’re talking about or should I try to stay on 2.12 and use my PS3 to grab the exploited game you’re talking about

  35. Kamil says:

    I have a question about this release:
    1) I’m on 1.81 FW with Gravity Crash exploit, and I’m thinking about update to 2.60 and getting new kexploit. But I heard something about Sony blocked renaming files on FW 2.06 or something like that. Can any1 explain me what is that about?
    2) Recently my Vita started rebooting itself often with some numeric error (even if I wasn’t using VHBL) – the solution was to format memory card and reinstall FW. I succeeded activating my PS Vita by trick with transfering app from my PS3. BUT I red that this trick is working only on Open CMA 4.5, version 5.0 already blocked this trick. Is that mean that with updating to 2.60, when the new FW will be released I’m stuck and in any case I won’t be able to restore my PS Vita system, because there is no way to activate it?
    Thx for answering.

  36. SmashADBurn says:

    Really hoping that kexploit comes out.

  37. jv says:

    mr. acid snake, you are so generous, thank you for this essential news,

    • ien1587 says:

      thnks acid_snake and all the people behind making playstation a station to play not to be a paystation.. i will be watching for this to be released.. tnx guys.. :)

  38. /.-./ says:

    Money?interesting :P, btw we can leak this on other forums,and then report the leaks to you?thought you didnt think that :p

  39. yoon says:

    so its goin to be 2.60 or 2.12 ? just curious :)

  40. Wololo cobra ode is going to be released and good job acid_snake thank you and thank you wololo

  41. User1 says:

    Thanks for the hard work Wololo. Will i be able to play pirated PSP games with this native Vita hack? I am really keen to play Call of Duty: Roads to Victory.

  42. User1 says:

    Thanks for the hard work Wololo. Will i be able to play pirated XBOX games with this native Vita hack? I am really keen to play Call of Duty: Roads to Victory.

  43. VictorWei says:

    I have questions that should I update to 2.60 or just keep my Gamocracy? If a kernel exploit is released , can Gamocracy exploit play the ISOs as fluently as the 2.60 exploit ?

  44. LennyVita says:

    This is good news for people that don’t have an exploit. As for updating with Vhbl already, for me there is no need. it plays emulators on apache. I am waiting for a Kexploit, that will allow more features of the Vita.

    if you already have a usermode exploit it will do 99% of what the last one did. so don’t waste your money updating every month making $ony rich.

    i know the developers here working hard to bring us new exploits, its great in any form. Keep up the good work.

  45. jwd says:

    Thanks for your hard work! As someone who worked on a few projects in the 3.6-5.x psp days I know how much work this implies. Just getting a vita I’m realizing how much i loved this scene. I have a question though is vita programing close to psp? Have the syscalls or much changed?

  46. Leires says:

    It’s kinda sad that vhbl is ‘all we got’, it makes it sound like it’s not good enough. People gotta ask themselves, has -anyone- else so far publicly released ANYTHING remotely close to such a thing on vita? No? Nobody? Now ask yourself, can i (as in yourself) do these things with my vita, without the shared knowledge that this site and it’s admins and such provide? Possibly, but it’s doubtful. Stop being so damn entitled, these people have done something that you can’t do yourself and on top of that they’re risking legalities (minor or otherwise, i’m sure sony is upset about this stuff) to publicly provide something nobody else can do.

    Lets be honest, most of the people who come asking if it plays ISOs are probably pirates, since ripping the ISO requires a PSP, in which case most of them would be fine just using said PSP until a ksploit was released, not asking every damn time something is released relating to VHBL. If you’re after piracy, go shell out like 80$ for a PSP and go to town.
    It’s easier on the hard working people who take time out of their schedule to appease the beggars if they don’t need to spend said time taken out on people asking DOES VHBL PLAY ISOS? CAN I ISO?

    Yes, TN-CEF is amazing. Yes, playing ‘backed up’ ISOs are nice. But for the love of god consider what you’re doing before you rush in asking every damn time if something does what -none- of the prior VHBLs have. Do some research. If you find an exploit yourself, don’t be pestering the ones who can.

    Ask yourself just how much manpower is wasted and stress is added on users who complain and beg and don’t do any research at all. If everyone just shut the heck up and was patient, we’d probably have even more exploits than we do now because said people finding them wouldn’t have to stop and address the single-minded horde that doesn’t think for themselves or read things.

    Sorry for the rant but good god people, come on. If one of the admins here has to put it in the blog post that VHBL ‘is all you got’..there’s something -seriously- wrong here..

    Thank you all of you guys for the hard work you do, i know you got people defending you like this and i’m sorry that the human race is so damn greedy that it can’t figure out even a modicum of patience. ;_;

  47. Leires says:

    if you can’t find an exploit yourself*

  48. schmief says:

    Ok. i saw that 2.12 vhbl has more memory to use, but vhbl 2.60 has better homebrew compatibility. would you think that DaedalusX64 would be able to run on this 2.60 exploit with fast speeds and non-lagging sound? please reply man, just wondering. BTW im on vhbl 2.12 and i have to say that DaedalusR13 isn’t that good. I would hope to see some DaedalusX64 in the future.

    • DarkenLX says:

      snes9x had lag issues so its maybe more a hardware limit then the memory could poor code or bugs but fact is if snes9x lagged in 2.12 with more mem and n64 emulator did too memory is unlikely the cause

  49. Logan says:

    Kinda of sad, considering I don’t remember exactly when I updated my firmware from 2.02 to 2.12…

    Boy do I regret that now. Now I am stuck on 2.12, having no way to get VHBL exploited cuz 2.60 was just made available on the 5th. I haven’t touched my Vita in awhile and now I know if I was to go onto PSN, I would have to update to 2.60.

    Sony wasn’t *** around they just jumped the shark from skipping 2.20 and going to 2.60 XD So what should I do in this situation, wait it out?

  50. DarkenLX says:

    when vhbl exploits are made is there any effort to try to make sure the game used does not cost alot?. not everyone is able to buy stuff off ps store for various reasons.

  51. sdf says:

    will these make vita read vita/psp backups?

    • avasdv says:

      o.m.g. read..

    • Casavult says:

      Read the damn post!

      “Now, let me make this clear: THE EXPLOIT WILL BE RELEASED WITH VHBL UNTIL TN CONFIRMS A NEW KERNEL EXPLOIT, so I don’t want anyone asking “d0es it pl4y 1S0s?” cause I’ll directly ignore you. If TN decides to release a kernel exploit, YOU WILL SEE THE NEWS HERE, until then: VHBL IS ALL YOU GOT.”

  52. luis says:

    why not announce three sets exploitable (or more), two are lying and only one is the exploitable to have if sony so takes longer to withdraw the game.

    • Alexander says:

      It would be the same, we would have to buy a few games, that cost us a lot more money, and sony would remove all the suspicous games for a couple of days, until they get the real. So, the sadly truth is that Ninja Release is the best way to do it… PS: sorry for the bad english

  53. internally-blazed says:

    Thanks Acid_Snake!

    I’ll update my vita to 2.60 and await this!

  54. Gyugyu says:

    Usually how much time do we have before they remove the vhbl? Hours, days?

    • Lennyvita says:

      VHBL will stay for ever and is available here. If you mean the exploited game it is usually a day or two at the most. If you wait a week it is too late. exploits are provided by ninja releases in the forums. Sign up and in time you may get notified of the next ninja release. The best way to not miss the next exploit is to sign up on the form and check regularly.

      if you are notified of the newest exploit you should get that game as soon as possible, if not instantly. Sony will pull the game once it is known to them. so to answer your question it is hours to a few days.

  55. pspfanMOHH says:

    @Lennyvita vHBL is limited source to amount of vita/psp games and minis there are

    @Acid Post the leak reports have to have proofs or else for example some can randomly point to me
