PS Vita: 2 more VHBL ports for firmware 2.61

We mentioned recently that both The Z and xXShinkirouXx are in possession of PSP exploits running on the latest Vita firmware 2.61, which was released yesterday.

They both took it one step forward by providing proof of concept videos of each on of their exploits running VHBL on Vita firmware 2.61.

This should not be a surprise to those of you who know how these exploits work (Sony only patch the “entry points” to VHBL, but not the “concepts” that let the PSP emulator run VHBL on the Vita), but it’s still good to know we still have options on the latest firmware.

On a side note, Yosh (wth) confirmed to me that the changes (in the PSP emulator) between firmware 2.60 and 2.61 are minimal, confirming that this firmware update was solely made to block the 2.60 Arcade darts exploits.

Enjoy the VHBL videos below :)

In his video, xXShinkirouXx shows Daedalus, Lamecraft (Minecraft clone on the Vita), Snes9xTYL, Bookr, Jelly Car, PSPlorer, gPSP running on the Vita 2.61.

The Z showcases Snes9xTYL, Masterboy (a.k.a. Emumaster), gPSP, and Wagic on his own VHBL port.

Release dates (if any) for both these exploits are still unknown, as well as (of course) the games these exploits rely on.

        No I meant : TNs Exploit is for Arcade Darts on 2.60, will his exploit probably work with a new game on 2.61?

          OK read the post and saw that the kexploit will be released after ps4 release and perhaps after vita update 3.00

    Still waiting for another PSP kernel exploit..I miss it since my last using with Uno exploit.

    If it is discovered after Killzone released, I would definitely buy the second vita just to play PSP games.

          Buddy, I do know programming. It’s a little thing called college classes. I would love to see you build a simple hello world on a computer. I bet you can’t. The only reason I don’t share exploits is because my computer has an issue with psplink for some reason.

          also, the one we call “stop”. if you think vhbl is a waste, why are you even on this website?

          Reply

    2. AndyEnsanity’s avatar

      that is because atm there is no native vita exploit so the closest we get is psp exploits.
      Also the psp exploits on the vita are useful since you can map the 2nd analog stick on psp games making games like call of duty :road to victory much easier to play.
      Also i wouldnt hold my breath for a native hack it wont be happening soon if ever because there hase been no security flaw found that would allow that kind of exploit on the vita.

      So how about you find something useful to occupy your time with instead of coming here to whine about how psp exploits are being used on the vita.

      If you want a native hack so badly go find a exploit and report it here if you dont know how to code your hack or better yet if you know how to make your own vita cfw and become a legend in the scene.

      theres most likely still bugs in it.
      They probally need to fix the bugs so that people wont complain about constant crashes or worst case scenario their vitas being bricked.

      just chill out and wait.

    yeah more VBL i dont see the point buying those games just for it ,after all when the game’s go public sony will give you week or so to enjoy Silly VBL ,and the money goes like Good Monthly Bonus for Sony ,,its like a big conspiracy(sudden game desipire and back again patched so i dont really care i have bought mini but never ussed ,on uno 2.0.2),and keep the minis alive and develop more holes in game on the other hand….would be nice to see Kexploit goin on :D

    PSP and VHBL hacks are kinda useless now, PPSSPP can play most psp game fullspeed on an android phone, thus removing any need to play those backups on Vita. Plus android has full homebrew support with thousands of apps, games, and emulators available for free and occasionally a small cost. If there was an actual vita mode hack then we could see some awesome uses of the vita hardware, but until then PSP mode hacks are pretty pointless.

      That is crap. Most PSP games do not work with PPSSPP and those that do are glitchy as hell.

        Errrrm It not glitchy at all
        I confirmed (except for dead or alive paradise)
        It can up scale resolution to HD (vita can’t)
        It can up scale texture to make it look a bit better (vita can’t)
        It can use anisotropic 16x (vita got bilinear)
        It can play back up game (lastest firmware can’t anyway)
        It run super fast even on smartphone pause and continue play without lag (ps vita go to sleep mode and tekken 6 lag after wake up) (but well smartphone can crash when pause)

    Hey Wololo, or anyone who can answer this question for me.

    I will try to keep this brief but no promises. Anyhow, I am on 2.60 and VHBL works great, I am playing my emulated games and homebrews just fine. However when I tried to connect to CMA (yes I am aware I am supposed to use Open CMA) it says “I need to update” or whatever.

    The problem here is, I don’t know how to get around this. Every time I’ve tried to get Open CMA to work, it just hasn’t. I run both the run and the setdll files as admin and the run file says a bunch of stuff as I believe it should but when I run the setdll file, it just flashes up and then goes away in a split second. So I assumed that’s what it was supposed to do, but to no avail. It still doesn’t work and prompts me to update.

    Now maybe I am just being an ignorant fool but I really don’t know what to do. If any of you could help me it would be greatly appreciated. If not I understand, you all do enough wonderful things as it is. It is wrong of me to ask more.

    Thanks regardless, Ryan.

    I’ve repurchased an exploit for the 3rd time now, if Sony don’t announce a redesigned Vita by years end, i’d probably permanently have the Vita updated to continue playing my games.

    I mean seriously, Dragon’s Crown, Killzone, Teraway, Ys: memories of celceta. Killer line up for me, that can’t be missed.

    I wonder why when they show a game,always have to be Wagic and pokemon shit XD,adventure island,batman return of the joker,TMNT,Monsters in my pocket,megaman,there millions better games than pokemon shit.Well i updated just for instant game collection for Rayman,i will wait for the next exploit and i hope not to see lags and fps drops in snes,normally gameplay on castlevania and then when you pass to the second 1-2 the fps drops from 60 to 20 or 19,also neo geo has a little bit of lag in some parts.

      Well sir that is called an opinion. You may not like those games, but whomever is making the video, probably does.

      While I am an avid fan of Megaman (and pokemon, tbh) I don’t like to see people smack talking other games.

      Opinions my friend, yours isn’t right, and neither is mine. That’s why they are called opinions. Just a personal preference. Show some respect next time, please.

    Damn will this go on and on??guys discover an useless exploit Sony patches it.I am saying useless as all these hombrews can be run on the psp now.
    Until I see an exploit which can run within the vita all these are of no use.
    Devs do us a favor and stop these stupid exploits as this will reduce the useless firmware updates from sony and help us maintaining the vita in the long run
    This is just my point of view.

Since I could not play anymore on wagic anywhere else, I would like so much to get it on my ps vita ! :)

    n00b question, but I just brought a PSP Vita (I used to have a PSP Generation 1 many years ago) & like a dime bar updated it to 2.61. I only plan on using the Vita for Sega/Nintendo/MAME emulators (I’m old skool gamer & only want to play the stuff from late 80′s early 90′s) is there a working jailbreak for this yet firmware or are we still waiting for one?
