[Release] ARK-2 (bubble) (3.36)

Post by qwikrazor87 » Fri Jan 30, 2015 8:18 am

Here's ARK-2 for 3.36.
FW336_ARK2_bubble.zip

ARK-2 source:
FW336_ark-2-source.zip

Tested and working with Uno US (signed with fake_np) as the base game.

From the readme:
Use sign_np (I suggest fake_np) to sign ARK2.ISO with your base game.

Transfer ARK_12345 save to your Vita.

For the base game I suggest cloning the same game you used for VHBL.
The base game must NOT be a crappy minis or 3.18 exploit game.

When you start the signed ARK2.ISO you should see a gray screen,
then a white screen (first "stage" of the exploit passed),
then a green screen (second "stage" of the exploit passed),
then you should see some text from ARK running the menu, etc.

Once in a while the kexploit attempt will throw an error, if so, a hard reset is required, otherwise launching games again will freeze.

Enjoy. :)

A beer or two would be greatly appreciated.

You need to make sure you don't use a crappy minis or 3.18 exploit game as the base, but yeah, it should run.
If you update though you'll be giving up TN-V and webkit, just saying.

Let's assume you're using Uno EU as the base, which has the ID NPEH00020.
You have VHBL already installed and you should have these two folders in /PSP/GAME/, NPEH00020 and NPEH00020&.
Backup NPEH00020& to your PC from your Vita.
Start PSP Filer in VHBL, make a new folder, something like NPEH60020,
then copy the signed ARK2.ISO EBOOT.PBP to NPEH60020.
Rename NPEH00020& to NPEH60020&.
Start CMA and restore NPEH00020& to your Vita.
Shutdown Vita and rebuild database.
You should now have two Uno games on the live area, which should either launch VHBL or ARK.

So now we can play both PSP ISO and PSX ISO on ARK like TN-V without converting them ????
