Upcoming VHBL release postponed
Hey people, so, as the title suggests, I have some slightly “bad” news to announce here (not that bad, really). Right after we announced an upcoming ninja release for a VHBL exploit on the PS Vita 3.18, Sony decided it was the right time to announce a meaningful firmware update for the PS Vita, an event that happens once a year at best.
Yeah, themes support on the PS Vita is a pretty big deal, it’s coming in October, and many of you have contacted us to ask, beg, demand that we postpone the VHBL release.
In general, I wouldn’t care. There are enough usermode exploits that we could have VHBL releases regularly, regardless of what the next firmware brings. But, this one VHBL exploit is actually pretty good with good compatibility, while many, many people plan on upgrading to 3.30 no matter what, so Qwikrazor87 decided to listen to you guys: The 3.18 VHBL release is postponed to 3.30.
Yes, I know, this will annoy some of you, and I know it’s not great to announce something then withdraw the promise. After all, I did call Smealum out for doing the same thing with the 3DS exploit recently. But I think it’s for the best. So, we expect the VHBL release to happen shortly after Vita firmware 3.30 is published.
Thanks for your understanding, this is for the best!
