PS Vita: Custom Bubble creation on Firmware 3.36 possible!
A few days ago we have told you that the new PS Vita firmware 3.36 patches the ability to create new custom bubbles from said system version.
While this has been correct, for a few hours, another trick has been found, which, once again, enables the creation of custom bubbles on firmware 3.36.
The previous trick involved renaming the /PSP/ folder into /PSP2/, since this circumvented the protection of the /PSP/GAME/…/ directory.
As of firmware 3.36 you are unable to do said thing… Well, kind of…
Another famous trick to modify (rename, delete, create, move, etc) EBOOT.PBP and PBOOT.PBP files has been to add one or 2 dots at the end, which then enabled you to touch said files.
If we use the E/PBOOT.PBP dot trick and apply it to the /PSP/ folder, then we are able to rename the /PSP/ folder once again, which enables us to create custom bubbles from scratch on firmware 3.36 (as long as you have access to the memory stick – via VHBL, PSPFiler or FTP).
Since this information is publicly available, we expect a PS Vita firmware 3.37 in near future, which tries to fix this…
That is, if they can fix it (the E/PBOOT.PBP dot trick has been public since months).
