    good job guys

    Nice! I’ve seen The Zett on YouTube running the homebrew I want on 3.52, so I’m a happy camper! 🙂 This time, though, I’m going to be smart enough to not update my Vita. Just incase 3.52 gets something nicer. 🙂

    i wasted my many for nothing…very bad work

    Seriously thinking about getting a 3.18 vita and selling my own 3.51 if the rejuvenate hack does not work out well (as in: does not require a pc to run). We’ll see in a couple of weeks.

    Doesn’t seem to work for me on 3.52 US Pool Hall Pro. It just loads the game. At first i thought it was because of an update to Pool Hall Pro it looked like my Vita downloaded. So I deleted that, and used OpenCMA to load the copy of the game I downloaded a few weeks ago. No dice. Not sure what i’m doing wrong.

    almost disappointing that this is good for nothing or play a simple game of Game Boy Color flagpole makes me want to mourn for my lost money. but hey I do not blame them is that everyone makes mistakes and just thank you all for your hard work and dedication time. I have all pro pool PSvita 3.52 US, Gladiator Begins US, Valhalla Knights 1 US, US Monster hunter join. exploid will wait for a new one of these games hopefully leave some. Thank you

    Also I would like to remind everyone to donate a little bit of something to qwik as he does an amazing job and really could need a little bit of extra coins for his laptop and internet. I did already. Thanks 🙂

    Thank you for your hard work, The Zett, Qwikrazor, and everyone involved.
    If I understand well, Sony has patched only the Pool Hall Pro and World of Pool, which means that, if someone finds a new ePSP exploit from a game that hasn’t be patched, this new game won’t have this limitation.
    So I’ll wait for another game with no limitation, I’m not in a hurry. Thanks again for all your hard work !

        • joe047

    Could someone say how to get that game itself with out updating. Tried ps3 method, playing with router, update blocker, charles so far no luck getting game. on 3.51 atm, actually ps3 was the easiest onefor previous uses. If anyone could say or drop a link (how to)for a working method, would be really nice. Btw sorry for giving this kinda question seen others asking same thing but didn’t see or simply somehow missed answer. Thanx

    So what you’re saying is that Sony patched the EU World of Pool in the PSN? I still have the first version on my Vita from the 3.50 exploit, would it work without the restriction or is the problem firmware-based?

    • notwololo

      woah, that’d be awesome I downloaded my Pool Hall Pro, on 3.50, I really hope that it is the game updated as a problem so we could still use it.

    • d4rk51d3

      They don’t patch the games. They just pull them until they patch the firmware.
      I only wish they could improve that godawful excuse for a browser.

    RIN should work since the Eboot for it is well under 1MB. Latest should be 662KB. But does this mean the Emu and whatever you LOAD has to be under 1MB?

  15. NsShadowSerpent

    The drama surrounding the supposed “lie” was both uncalled for and unnecessary. What on earth would gain? Happy to see it released.

  16. Galion skyedragon

    any install guide i dont know if i did it right. cuz its crashing and getting an error

  17. Galion skyedragon

    nevermind found instructions on hackinformer

  18. notwololo

    Ah well slightly disappointing, I bought Pool Hall Pro when it was first announced months ago but updated, to 3.51. Kinda sad it won’t work for PSP games, but hey beggars can’t be choosers, plus I got my money out of it playing older PSP games.

    Plus I am sure Rejuvenate will continue to bring more great things. 🙂

    Also my condolences for you guys having to deal with the people upset over this.

    I’m using the provided SavedData…I can load VHCL successfully (no emulators) and after a couple minutes I get the typical error message “c1-2858-3”.
    Also the posts says that 3.52 exploit only works with 138menu….but I saw a video of “TheZett” running VHBL using other video and loading (what it seem to me) games bigger than 1 MB….how big can Pokemon Emerald be?

    I have got a couple emulators installed and working in vhbl. The rom I included in the install zip does not show up anywhere within the emulator or the vhbl explorer. Why?

  21. Daniel Whittlesey

    Anonymous. How in the heck did u get anything working. All I get is error. Please explain as for your rom try unzip it. A video or detailed tutorial would be awesome

  22. Daniel Whittlesey

  23. ItzJaay

    Visit hackinformer, there’s a few kind guys that threw together a few complete pre packaged saves.

  25. NoPatience

    I see y the price had been reduced for the game…….4 bucks……worth it!

  26. Ross

    Is there no HBL for the EU version of World of Pool?

    “These exploits have been quite controversal, like… ” You missed an “i” in “controversal” 😉

  29. woo too

  30. 风君子

  31. doggjojo

    Thanks for your work !!!
    What if i have a 3.36 world of pool, but no hacked psp and no ps3? possibility to run a cfw and psp iso?

  32. NoPatience

    Can we like run backupz of psp gamez that are like more than 700mb or so, hehe??????????
    They are legal………purchased…..before….lost em 7 years ago lol

  33. afeg

    How many years still buying games for vhbl? ps vita hackers are lazy

  34. jam007

    I’m inexperienced in the subject, the a way I see that could add more than 1 mb is to create a new false game.
    Let me explain, that jump protection will be on writing the game (at the end the 85 megs game or used half of the to load the exploit, only the save menu, background music, menu and I think already) or creating another but this does not work.
    only serious new game memory space to add roms and emulators.

    I say no, because not is how works the vita with psp games

    Can anyone “confirm” if this game’s still up and running for purchasable exploitation as of Sept.17th/3.52?
    And what emulators are confirmed running? (There’s a strong possibility its been removed/updated by now..)

    Really wanting to get my other Vita going with some emulators now that I’ve “upgraded”.. So I’m heavily considering this if anyone can confirm good things with actual sources.. 3.52’s my stop!
