[Video] One more PSP Hello world on the Vita 2.60

If you’ve missed the latest VHBL release a few days ago, you’ll be happy to know that there are still a significant number of PSP games with similar exploits available on the PSN, and it just takes hackers with dedication to find them :)

Such is the case of  xXShinkirouXx who contacted me recently to show me a hello world on the PS Vita, running on the latest 2.60 firmware. He confirmed this is not the Arcade Darts exploit that got revealed a few days ago. xXShinkirouXx also told me he already ported VHBL to this exploit, and will be showing a video proof of that in the days to come.

The exploited game is available in EU and US, and availability in other stores still needs to be verified. As far as a release is concerned, xXShinkirouXx is waiting for the next Sony official firmware release before considering it.

User mode exploits in PSP games are proving to be extremely frequent and relatively easy to find. VHBL was ported to 7 games exploits over the past 18 months, and a total of 11 PSP game exploits have already been used on the Vita to enable homebrews. It is believed that more than 10% of PSP games have security vulnerabilities that make them exploitable with simple buffer overflow techniques. I explain here how such vulnerabilities are found, and here how to port VHBL to an exploit.

    well, that’s always good news. I would recommend waiting till 3.00 comes out.

    Hoping this game is available on the NZ/AU stores, I’ve missed out on the most recent exploits.

    Also, is it possible to have legit games stored on a separate memory card? I still want to get hold of Disgaea 4 Return and maybe even Minecraft..

      Not to break your spirit (you won’t succeed if you don’t try) but it’s not as easy as 1-2-3. But when you make progress, yes, please do post your results!

      Even if we get awesome games over that i agree with you,paying to buy oldest games is not cool but hey those exploits are expensive but most people need to save money to buy Psv Games.I hope someday i can play psx and psp games without paying….AGAIN for them.

        So, I want to play PSP backups on my Vita. Does that mean I’m an pirate? No, I own all my games and I rip them using my PSP and transfer them to my Vita. Just because he wants to play ISO backups doesn’t mean he’s a pirate, he could mean he wants to play ISO backups he made himself.

    hmmmm i sure wish tn-v 4 would be release earlier because i cant wait for new features and so i can decide if ill update later or not because maybe ds emulators can run there but i also need to update because of games on vita that i cant buy and video streams its hard to decide atm haha

    Speaking of psp iso support, I noticed that playing psp games with lots of 3-d jaggy textures look nasty on the vita screen vs my psp 3000′s but 2d images suffer less. If only they would allow us to crop the screen in game via touch D: >.<

      will this exploit be ported to Total_N00b’s TN-v4?? I just hope so because I read last time that a kernel exploit requires a user mode exploit to be able to run it.. Just correct me if I am wrong..

    the only reason I want ISO is because of NFS and test drive unlimited PSP games that are not in the EU PSN
