Yet again Total_Noob’s popular Custom Emulator Firmware TN-V will be receiving an update.
It seems the Z publishes videos faster than I can type. As I was writing a blog entry about his Hello world running on PS Vita firmware 2.10, he was already hard at work getting a VHBL video ready! Yup, there you have it guys, “Day 1″ VHBL running on PS Vita OFW 2.10!
In the video below, The Z showcases a PS Vita on Firmware 2.10 running Wagic (heroic fantasy card game homebrew, by yours truly) and Emumaster (Masterboy), a Sega Master System and Game Boy color emulator (in the video, running one of the bazillions of video games of the Pokemon franchise).
It is no secret that PS Vita scene member The Z has a PSP hack available and running on the Vita. He actually mentioned that a while ago back when 2.06 was the latest and greatest.
Today, as firmware 2.10 was announced then quickly made available, we got the usual flow of questions: Have exploits been patched? Does VHBL still work? Will TN save the world from the Giant Crab?
Well at least now we can at least answer one of those, as The Z was quick to confirm that his current exploit is still alive on PS Vita 2.10, as shown in the video below.
The new Playstation Vita update is already out and ready for you to download.
Just a few weeks after unlocking essential secrets to PS2 emulation, the PS3 scene has been super active again for the past few days, after initial announcement from developer zecoxao on ps3hax that psp games (and potentially homebrews) could run on the PS3. Zecoxao discussed the idea that potentially any psp game could be injected into regular psp mini games to run on the ps3 (basically using a ps3 compatible mini game as a “disguise” for running other psp games or homeberew); which was quickly followed by proof of concept code, itself followed by fully usable tool suites to run “any” psp game on a PS3.
Finding PSP exploits without owning a PSP was considered impossible because of the absence of PSPLink. But now, PSP emulators are finally starting to behave like the real thing. They have become so accurate that now it is possible to find exploits using just the PSP emulators on a PC.
Great news, an update to TN-V is here to fix a lot of issues and features! Read the rest of this entry »
As we announced the upcoming release of a VHBL port by TomTomDu80 for Vita 2.06, Sony followed what is now a tradition, and pulled the game from their EU store as soon as they got the information. Many people contacted us about this now, and although I haven’t verified myself, this got confirmed by enough sources that I trust this is true.
Can’t log in to PSN because of being on a lower firmware? Here’s how you can still access Netflix. Read the rest of this entry »
PSP/Vita scene famous member The Z has always been a great resource of news, but, believe it or not, this is actually the first time he reports about an exploit of his own. Congrats
A good friend of mine contacted me recently because his PS3 got banned from Sony’s PSN. He owns a PS3 for the sole purpose of playing Videos and music, and mostly runs Showtime (a media player Homebrew, far better than the official PS3 video player) and Netflix. If the default video player on the PS3 was decent, he wouldn’t have to run a CFW at all. As a matter of fact, he never played a single game on his PS3. Nevertheless, he woke up one day seeing that he couldn’t connect to the PSN anymore.
It’s a recurring question we get whenever there’s a hack in approach. Given the nature of the exploits we release, we have to be careful in the process, in a way to provide enough time for as many people as possible to get the hack.
