    Really? I might update as well since i wanted to make a psn account later on 😀

  3. Rafael707 says:

    I wonder if we have to pay for the game.. There are no free psp demos on psn

    If you’re planning to release HBL on USA launch, then shouldn’t you use the most up-to-date firmware till the launch?
    ’cause if the recent firmware patches some tricks you used to run HBL better on VITA so that it no longer works, then what’s the point of releasing it on USA launc since, most likely, USA version of VITA will be shipped with the latest firmware out there.
    So I think you have to use the most up-to-date firmware until the USA launch and test HBL.

      Or arguably I could get other people to test it for me, and guarantee that at least *I* can keep investigating the potential benefits of this exploit. Just like a PSP1000 is still very useful to understand how a pspgo works without breaking the pspgo, a lower firmware is interesting to find breaches in higher firmwares. If I lock myself out, I get information and I can tell people to stop hoping for the release, but I also prevent myself from doing further (maybe useful) information

      • Cercata says:

        Yes, and there is always time to upgrade the firmware, but at the moment is imposible to downgrade it.

        • Reine says:

          if a kernel exploit found on lower version, boom, u pass most exciting chance :(, waiting longer for another one T_T

  5. Crimson Flamebreaker says:

    And i managed to link my psn account without upgrading :3

  6. dimy93 says:
    apparently more than one bug was fixed but I cannot understand why Sony doesn’t mention in details what’s been fixed

  7. syafiq tatsuya says:

    thank you very much and good job for all hacker and wololo:D and i hope we can play all psp title on psvita 😀 thank everyone

  8. HackThiefCoder93 says:

    I’m going to wait for more news on this before I update.

  9. AE says:

    NICEE update btw wololo how’s wololo 2.0?

  10. h4ckNsl4ck says:

    I hope the exploit is a retailed physical copy of a game like the zelda hack for the wii. Sure miss team M33

    • Cercata says:

      There are no physcal PSP Games on Vita. You have to trade them in with a PSP with UMD reader on PSN, pay, and then you can download them from the PSN on your vita.

      Until someone makes an external UMD reader for the vita … based on a psp perhaps.

  11. h4ckNsl4ck says:

    I am not updating nothing not my vita not any of my other consoles they stay updated with the latest cfw’s and hax.

  12. h4ckNsl4ck says:

    Thank You to wololo and all the other peeps not mentioned. That take the time too make all these wonderful things happen to the devices we all love. You know Nintendo,Microsoft and Sony could all learn a great deal from people like this and others because they not only show the weaknesses of a system they also show what the system can really do. No one wants to buy the same game over and over again like oh I got super mario bros for the nes and the snes and all these other consoles and I just bought a wii and have to buy the game Again just to play it on this new kool console heck with that thats not what we want we want a fair balance here they over charged for years and now its the users turn. Thats my rant and Thank God for gifted minds like this and be very thankful for roms and emulators

  13. R.A.V.S.O says:

    Why do I have this strange feeling we’re about to be
    enveloped in another cat-and-mouse game?

    oh well… brings back some thrilling sensations
    when people were trying to hack the early FW’s XD

  14. natsu says:

    i think that REASON why we cant use CMA is that we cant connect to ps store…

    im from the Philippines… any thoughts on our situation wololo? have a nice day

    • natsu says:

      when we try to connect to ps store, it says it the server is not available…

      when we connect the vita to a pc with cma, it asks to install it.. as if it cant see CMA running on our vita..

      were on 1.52 anyway… its somewhat ok that we cant connect… the best part is that we have the unit,…lols… we just dont have mp3 and vids for now…:(

      it also a value pack with uncharted… if this is of any help…^_^

      • streme21 says:

        Its the driver problem on the PC if u still can’t connect Vita to PC, try uninstall the driver for vita on ur PC upon connecting the vita to ur PC, I also encounter the problem but then I try on my other PC and it can connect, then I figure out the problem lies on the driver

    • wololo says:

      You need to say you live in a country where the PSN is available. I don’t know if that’s the case for the philippines. Try to reset your console, and say you live in Japan, or in Hong Kong, then try to create a psn account there

      • natsu says:

        im not sure if its because of the maintenance of ps store… i just read a minute ago about it…

        anyway, are you referring to factory reset thing? what about the trophies i got?

        • wololo says:

          Yes, it’s the factory reset. You will lose the trophies, but you will get them back next time you reuse the other account. Make a backup before you do that.

        • chrisuros says:

          @natsu nakabili ka na pala ng ps Vita. San mo binili at magkano? Parang gusto kong bumili…

  15. syafiq tatsuya says:

    any idea psvita hbl coming?

  16. Numb.X says:

    that’s how the ps vita should be !
    it’s a powerful portable console and it has got 2 analog sticks so we will play what we want 😀
    & i have a question..
    can the psvita run ps2 games ? & if it can
    do u will make an emulator for it to run the ps2 games?

    • StepS says:

      No. Sony said that PS2 support is very unlikely to be introduced. If yes, then people will need to wait for first valuable Vita hacks first, and then some third-party dev can make an emulator (I’m pretty sure the Vita hardware allows it well)

    • rafael707 says:

      die troll..

  17. syafiq tatsuya says:

    if psvita can play psp game can we use the dual analog? 😀

  18. Crimson Flamebreaker says:

    Possibly, like the monster hunter game

  19. syafiq tatsuya says:

    yes hoping to get the cfw on vita in may 😀 so i can play all my psp game 😀 i just bought the psv but i like my psp better but now my psp have broke i just have to wait for the hbl or cfw on psvita and thank wololo and anyone that hack the psv 😀 psp game i play!! the psvita game i buy!! 😀

  20. Crimson Flamebreaker says:

    Don’t forget to thank Coldbird 😀

  21. syafiq tatsuya says:

    ok thank coldbird XD

  22. natsu says:

    we got CMA to work.. YAY… haha

  23. syafiq tatsuya says:
