Release: Firmware 3.51 VHBL for PS Vita & Playstation TV! Exploited game is a free Demo! (JP Store)
Important update: we mistakenly wrote that the US name of the game was “Toukiden: Age of Demons” but it is actually Toukiden: Kiwami. The Japanese name is still accurate, and this doesn’t change a thing: unless stated otherwise, you need to create a Japanese account on the PSN in order to get this PSP Demo.
Japanese developer 173210 has released an VHBL for the PS Vita (and PS TV) firmware 3.51.
The required exploit game is Toukiden: Kiwami (DEMO) and it is only available in the Japanese Playstation Store (as far as we know).
As the name of the game lets you assume, it is in fact a Demo version of the Toukiden: Kiwami (『討鬼伝 極 体験版』) game. This means the game is free!
As showcased in the video above, you can see that you can easily run the VHBL via this free exploit game, if you are capable of getting it onto your device, that is.
Keep in mind that the VHBL is still being improved (its version number indicates version 0.1), but the game is free of charge, so who are you to complain about this.
The demo version of Toukiden: Kiwami can be obtained via the Japanese Playstation Store, or simply via this Online-Store link (Still JP-Only).
Since firmware 3.51 has fixed the public kernel mode exploits, which are required to run the ARK-2 & TN-V11 eCFWs, you won’t be able to use those on firmware 3.51.
If you happen to be on firmware 3.50 (three point five zero!), then you are able to grab this exploit game and run TN-V & ARK-2 (theoretically).
Once again this Japanese exploit was found by Japanese developer 173210. He has released various Japanese exploits in the past, and has also improved the VHBL’s source by quite a lot!
Funnily enough, this exploit has been found by a few other developers as well, but they used the UMD Version(s) of the game for their exploits.
