Preview: Upcoming PS Vita Half Byte Loader for Firmware 3.18
Not long ago, Wololo told you about another plan to release yet another PS Vita Half Byte Loader for Firmware 3.18. I got my hands on that soon to be released VHBL build for our next exploit game, and I have to say, I am really impressed by qwikrazor87s work!
Lets take a look at it…
The best way to showcase this, next to trying it yourself, of course, is a video.
In the video you can see a white PS Vita 1000 running the VHBL on the (currently) most recent PS Vita system software, firmware 3.18.
The PS Vita is able to properly start homebrews, it is able to properly start various emulators, it is able to properly exit those homebrews and emulators, so it can return to the wMenu (the VHBLs default menu), so that you can start a different homebrew without restarting the exploit game and redoing the whole exploit process, like it used to be the case with some games (e.g. Arcade Darts, Apache Overkill and so on).
What really surprised me was the fact, that you can not only run PSPFiler 6.6 without any major problems, but you can also return to the wMenu after using the PSPFiler 6.6 homebrew, something that was not possible in any kind of PS Vita HBL we have released in the last 12 months.
The compatibility of the VHBL is really really REALLY good, since it can run a lot of things, can exit everything properly, and can even use PSPFiler!
I do not want to spoil anything, but you guys will love to use this exploit game, since it is not only a good game itself, but it is also not a pain in the neck to get to the VHBL menu after starting the game (I am looking at you Gravity Crash Portable and friends).
Details about the games price, the games size, the regional availability and of course the games name will be published in near future in form of a blog post.
