Some videos showcasing 173210′s upcoming VHBL port for Vita 2.61

We’ve announced recently that Japanese developer 173210 is going to release a port of VHBL for Vita firmware 2.61 soon. The following videos showcase his work in progress. We have shown these videos before, but at the time it was not clear that a release would happen.

The first video shows a very simple homebrew (PSPONG) running inside the exploit. This was at a time where 173210′s exploit did not have enough available ram to load reasonably complex emulators.

But with help from Qwikrazor87 (famous for his port of VHBL to firmware 2.12, as well as his help for the latest VHBL on 2.60), 173210 was able to free more Ram and load more advanced homebrews. The second video shows that the exploit can run Daedalus (N64 Emulator), Wagic (trading card game), PSPFiler (file manager), Bookr (ebook and pdf reader), MVSPSP (Neo Geo emulator), PSPCalc (a calculator utility), pspdoxManager and PSPlorer (other file managers) and Snes9xTYL (Super NES emulator).

VHBL is a utility to load user-created software on the Playstation Vita, such as user-made games and emulators. VHBL runs through an exploit and typically requires you to buy a vulnerable game from the playstation store. This upcoming release leverages an exploit for a game that is only available on the Japanese PSN.

Stay tuned for more info on the release… don’t forget the way of the ninja :)

      Hey, give the guy some credit.

      He is releasing this exploit for us, while he has the chance to keep it private. Consider it a privilege and not a right..

      “ninja release” means the name of the game is given in waves through special notifications on the forum.
      the better your standing on the forum(contributions, no warnings, join date) the sooner you get the name of the game.

      if a moderator finds out you shared the name of the game(or asked for it) you will be excluded from any future ninja releases.

      I don’t think you understand
      There was no HBL release just a blog post showing the most popular homebrew for the month and now this post showing a bit more of the upcoming release

      If you want a release for your region than either wait for one to be found and have the finder willing to release it or find it yourself

      Also, there is not a release every month, releases depend on when and how each dev wants to do it.

      ninja releases come in waves.
      if you only joined recently, got warnings, and/or have a low (valid)postcount you may receive the notification later than people who have been active on the forum for a long time.

    PSPFiler works? Is this the first release in quite a while that it runs on? I couldn’t get it to work on the 2.12 exploit. I had to use PSPlorer. Didn’t try on 2.60 though.

      Indeed, it’s pretty rare, but some versions of pspfiler have worked in vhbl releases in the past

        Not really, qwikrazor found a way to get PSPFiler working by essentially moving VHBL globals away from the scratchpad as PSPFiler also uses the scratchpad. So this technically should work on most exploits (except those with memory issues).

          I found the way.
          qwikrazor make VHBL copy game stubs to VRAM before kill the main module and copy them to the same place after then.
          The way is not good. It disables to load some homebrews which is very large because the stubs are near the place to load homebrew.
          So I make VHBL copy stubs to another place and.
          Taking the opportunity, I make VHBL copy stubs and globals of HBL to the place.
          qwikrazor created the chance for me to find the way.
          This way don’t need so much memory. It needs only 1KB.

    Hi guys, Im entering the vita universe in the last months, I can say that Im really enjoying the psvita and the games, although the many locks it has in comparison with psp. I saw in some forums here that the next exploit to 2.61 will be through a game to be released only in Japan. There is some way to get this game (I live in south america)? There is a way to do a Japanese PSN account and buy it? Thanks and congrats for the site, really supportive!
