    does anybody know if this exploit will also work on the game which was bought from the asian psn store?

  4. GEoffrey says:

    I bought Arcade DArts
    The game is so so bad

  5. 110706 says:

    And the point of this is? playing PSP games? i can do that on my PC too.

    • watswat5 says:

      The point is to let you run homebrew games and emulators on a convenient handheld you already own rather than be tied to consoles, PC’s or phones with funky touch screen controls. Also, if a Kernal exploit is released, you can play backups of any of your psp games at full speed on the go

  6. Aidan says:

    Sorry but what update version will this vhbl be on?

  7. intuitivehealer says:

    does this work on asian singapore region? totally tempted to buy arcade darts from the minis store. pls reply

    • Acid_Snake says:

      it will, so buy it if you can

      • Astro GmR says:

        Why the heck did you give the names of ALL the exploits?!? Seems to me that those leakers want followers and you want fans. If you kept the other name of the games secret. there will be 3 more exploits we could’ve used, but nah, you rather lose the whole wallet instead of a dollar. This is the first time that 4 exploits were floating around, you caught the exploits with a net and put them for the world to see. I needed this exploit to delete the homebrews out of my PSP emulator. Thanks god that there was a price drop for the PS Vita memory sticks cause dang.

        I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE THAT YOU GAVE ALL 4 OF THE DARN GAMES AWAY! For now on, I know that it isn’t good news to the public when YOU find an exploit.

        • wololo says:

          All games are from the same company, and rely on the same vulnerability. Once one of them got patched, Sony would have quickly figured out the others need to be patched as well. This is what happened for the patapon series, and once one of the games got patched with 2.60, this accelerated the decision for a release.
          Those are not “4 different games”.

          • Dmaskell92 says:

            That was precisely what I got from the article. I mean, if people would just read they would have no questions, as they have been answered already.

  8. berrios30 says:

    I just downloaded the arcade darts on the ps vita

  9. maxzilion says:

    sorry i didnt chatch will this pay iso

    • Haze7 says:

      No it won’t. Only a kernel exploit can run isos this exploit can only run homebrew games,apps and some emulators for the psp (There is a whole list of all that stuff in the forum). the last kernel exploit only ran on 2.02 and it required the game UNO. But as far as I know a new kernel exploit is supposed to be up after the PS4 has been released for 2.60.

  10. Haze7 says:

    Anyone who has run a kernel exploit. Can you function your PS Vita (like access the internet and go onto psn) after you have exploited your vita?

  11. maxzilion says:

    hey haze7 yea i had uno and internet worked fine

  12. ManOverboard says:

    11:50 am in the US, Arcade Darts and The other Arcade games are still available for download.

  13. Evil_Dooms says:

    the eu psn is “currently down for maintenance” as of 20:14 gmt.
    i hope the games are there when its up.

  14. Ker~Man says:

    Damn… I Bet anything it’s because they’re removing it. Under maintenance I the US now, too…

  15. Brian says:

    PSN STORE MAINTENANCE TODAY and i already upgradded from 2.10 to 2.60 and i hope they don’t remove the 4 games doing the down time

  16. David says:

    Yea i just checked the PlayStation Store and there just now pulling the Games off the store (US Store)

  17. Ker~Man says:

    SON OF A ***! Exact minute I was going to buy it the store goes all maintenance *** on us! And, obviously, just updated to 2.60. That’s some REAL ***…

  18. Hellbelial says:

    PSN Maintenance thank god i bough it but now we will see if the exploit still works,im mad because i was about to download Dead or alive 5 plus and now i have to wait,again,thank god i bought the exploit and the game DOA5+ XD.

  19. Tman says:

    Thanks guys.

    I will definitely try the completed work upon finished.

    As of late the some of the games are still available on PSN.
    I’m in the US.

  20. Tonny says:

  21. stillmad says:

    Acid_Snake you can go *** yourself for leaking and ruining secret exploits all over the world! The REAL communty thanks you alot…

  22. Geoffrey says:

    I don’t get it .

    I managed to install VHBL without problem but when I try to send INSTALL.ZIP the save appears as bigger but it doesn’t copy the Zip to the vita


  23. Edzo says:

    This maintenance was already planned so there’s a chance they will still be up

  24. Evil_Dooms says:

    the psn is back online but the latest store version is still down for maintenance (uk)

  25. mrcrew says:

    wololo you had to post that on the day the PSN goes down. now I will have to watie for 3.00 update. cheers

    • wololo says:

      First, this was not my article, second, in case you haven’t read, we had to post this since the exploits had been revealed a day before on another site.

      • ducky420 says:

        This exploit was revealed months ago when it was 2.05, many people were running the exploit safely til this day. Now we can forget about VHBL on future firmwares with this game.
        Cheers to Acid_Snake who took full credit for it. And spoiled it.

  26. Srokaty says:

    In EU stone i have error (NP-2238-5)

  27. itsugawakun says:

    well US Playstation store is down for maintenance as of 12:00 Pm Hawaii Standard Time

  28. Ryan says:

    Can’t tell if there are just really bad trolls or I am just being paranoid (probably both, lol) but this exploit HASN’T been released yet, correct?

    • ducky420 says:

      Sorry, but this is not correct, and I’m not a troll. This was a truly successful ninja release months ago. Just telling the truth..

      • wololo says:

        This was announced on many other sites before acid_snake took the painful decision to write this article, so what the heck are you talking about?

        • Ryan says:

          Is there a guessed time/date for when it will be released? Keep in mind I am not trying to be like “HURRY UP AND GIVE IT TO ME” I just like to keep things in check so I know when to come back here, etc. I tend to check on everything daily but if its going to be at a specific time then taken down. I do not want to miss out.

          Thanks for all you guys do btw, really good stuff. I have been around here since the first HBL. It was quite fun. Cheers

        • ducky420 says:

          The less I speak, the better it will be for future ninja releases. There is no way back anyway, so I stop here.

  29. gatopsy says:

    yo me compre hustle kings snooker pack no saben si este tenia xploit ?????????

  30. me says:

    calm down. it was just fine from acid_snake, but next time please leak one game a day. so can get more people any chance.

    • Dmaskell92 says:

      They are all the same, easily patched, and essentially the same exploit. It’s better for everyone in other regions to get this. Why release a single game and have the other 3 patched and useless?

  31. SilentKnightXII says:

    I will be sad face if the games are down when the maintenance is done, I had to take driver licence test

  32. Antichrist84 says:

    maintenance just finished on EU store and all 4 games are still on the store 😀

  33. me says:

    i checked, arcade darts is still available.

  34. gatopsy says:

    por que en la de mexico no sale ninguno??

  35. elrey says:

    I’m sorry I do not speak English … I can download the games from any store??? no matter whether it is the U.S.A. or EU version of the game?

    • agp670 says:

      Si cualquiera de los juegos mencionados te aparece en el store, lo puedes comprar con la confianza de que te servirá para el exploit, no importa su fué descargado del store de Europa, Estados Unidos, México, o cualquier otra.

  36. gatopsy says:

    that on the psn of mexico and not leave any games?

    • michel says:

      no se por que no lo estan en mexico pero lo que si te puedo decir es que el arcade pool si esta en la store de PS3 en caso de que tengas la consola buscalo hay y despues pasalo a tu ps vita yo eso fue lo que hice

  37. Victor says:

    Is there a FORSURE US vhbl exploit for arcade darts i don’t wanna go and buy the game for nothing please respond.

  38. CrUmp says:

    I was going to switch to the US store and the second I format my memory stick all stores went on maintenance, ***…..guess I should check their plans before doing something like that. and then I was afraid that when the stores are back online, exploitable games will be updated.

    good thing I bought arcade darts and arcade pool & snooker. and I used PSN DM to download the second game. it’s pretty safe to say that pool & snooker has not been updated. I can tell because it downloaded the title from the proxy cache. So although I don’t have arcade darts cached, I will assume that the games has not been updated. but i’m not sure, good luck 😀

  39. wizardinblack says:

    surprisingly, this game has not been removed yet! just got it.. super mario here i come!

  40. Ker~Man says:

    YESSS!!! Arcade Darts is still in the US store upon being back up & running! Just snagged/downloaded it! Amazingly lucky!!!

  41. iphone 5s says:

  42. BeastyX says:

  43. Hamish Claxton says:

    Will a kernel exploit allow the wifi to be used? As wifi doesn’t work on this exploit.

  44. Meki says:

    Anyone has a clue if it still working ? just managed to see this post ! Should I grab any of them fast ?

  45. airjer says:

    Mis-leading title… it makes you think that Acid_Snake’s VHBL exploit was actually released. I grabbed arcade darts when the info first leaked (the game’s worse than gamocracy, jesus) so psssshhhhhhhhhh

  46. Mud says:

    I want to download this exploit. iam currently @ fw 2.10 us store but psn force me to update to 2.60… any help asap… i really want to keep up on exploits ever since i got my vita… thanks in advance

    • exo_gurei says:

      use this link using your pc and sign in with your account;!/en-us/home/games

      If the game is still there, then you will be able to download it. Buy the game using the link. Once you purchased the game you should see instructions about queuing the game in your PSVITA’s download list. Once it is queued, turn your PSVITA’s wifi or then restart. Then, you’ll be able to see the the game being downloaded at your download list. TRY it. It worked for me. I am currently at 2.10 too. And I have the Gamocracy exploit but I just downloaded the game for safety reasons. The last time I checked, the game Arcade Darts is still up. hurry!

  55. xlovenuggetx says:

    I wonder how much longer it will be up in the US. 4:49am CST it’s still on PSN store.

  59. fingloi says:

    No asian love? huh? wololo?

  60. ezekielx2 says:

    i have the arcade darts, is it still ok? did sony already patch this game?

    • wololo says:

      Sony don’t/can’t patch the games, they patch the firmwares. You’re fine. Just make sure the game is properly installed by running it at least once. So many people think it’s ok to just have it in their download list: It’s not

  61. Logan says:

    I guess all the games listed have been taken down in the US PS Store, as I can’t find them. Sad I downloaded Arcade Darts from Media Go…and I have no PS3 =w=

  62. Edo says:

    What do I have to do now? Can someone help me out?
