Release: VHBL for Vita Firmware 3.15 (Space Invaders Extreme exploit)
The time has finally come to release the latest VHBL port for firmware 3.15, running through the Space Invaders Extreme exploit!
A few days ago we publicly announced the name of a new exploitable game for the PS Vita: this is the PSP game “Space Invaders Extreme”, that will let you run VHBL, a homebrew loader for the PS Vita. Sony, as usual, removed the game from their stores, and will most likely put it back once the exploit is patched.
People who were able to purchase and download the game in time will now be able to run the exploit.
As a reminder, it is strongly recommended to use OpenCMA, and to make a backup of your Vita memory card, to avoid losing the game, as Sony will not let you re-download it without forcing you to update and lose the exploit.
What is VHBL
VHBL is a homebrew loader for the PS Vita, running through a game exploit in the PSP emulator of the Vita. The exploit is triggered by a game that people need to purchase through the Sony PSN. VHBL lets people run homebrews and emulators. It does not let people run PSP “backups” or “isos”, let alone Vita pirated games.
Download and installation
Credits go to Wistine for the exploit and VHBL port.
You can download VHBL for Firmware 3.15 (Space Invaders Extreme Exploit) on the VHBL page, as usual. That page contains explanations on how to run the exploit, install homebrews, etc…
