My VHBL Release: FAQ
Note from wololo: this post, and the release, are by Acid_Snake, not by me. Just giving the precision here for those who don’t take the time to read the author’s name at the top of the article 😉
Still having some questions about my upcoming exploit? read this first!
What type of exploit is this?
It’s a usermode only exploit, no kernel, no ISOs, just VHBL.
Will it ever be compatible with a kernel exploit?
Yes! when Total_Noob releases his TN-V4 I will immediately port it to this exploit, so it’s a good idea that you hold on to it and don’t update the firmware until then.
What can I do with this in the meantime? does it have good compatibility?
Yes, compatibility is decent, better than Apache or Gamocracy, so you can use it for some of the best homebrews in the meantime.
Does [insert homebrew here] work?
As time progresses, I’ll be releasing compatibility lists, if your homebrew is not listed, you can ask us to test it here: http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=34368
When will it be released?
I don’t know.
How much does it cost?
I can’t tell you the exact amount. All I can tell you is: be prepared with the maximum amount of money you are willing to pay for the exploit.
Is it a normal PSP game or a mini?
I can’t tell you, and to be honest, it doesn’t matter.
I don’t speak English well, are there other sites that speak my language where the release will happen?
We are working to gather partners from other sites so that most users can get the exploit, specially PSP scene sites in other languages. When time is right, I will publish a list of Approved sites where you can ask for information and maybe obtain the Ninja Release.
Can I make my own Ninja Release in my site?
It depends, your site must have some prerequisites and must follow a few rules.
The golden rule here is that if your site is backed up by trustworthy scene members, and you know what you’re doing, we can allow you to do the release. But you have to be in constant contact with us for everything you do to make sure you’re doing it right and no leak happens.
About the $20 PSN contest, is there any requirement for submitting an entry?
[note from wololo: Acid_Snake announced in this article he would donate a $20 PSN Code to whoever reports the most leaks as part of the ninja release. To give a bit of context on this: leaks put the ninja release at stake, and we are trying various techniques to prevent them. This is one of these attempts. However I want to clarify that this “contest” is 100% driven by Acid_Snake, this is his money, not mine, and his decision to drive this]
There isn’t any, but if the leaker posts a screenshot of the Ninja Release it counts a lot more than if he only says the name.
What if someone leaks the game on purpose to report it and win the $20 PSN prize?
We have ways to tell if the reporter is legit or not. I wouldn’t have done the contest if I didn’t know what I was doing.
I found a leaker, but he’s leaking the wrong game!
He’s most likely a troll that wants people to buy the wrong game, it has happened before, nowadays we have photoshop and the like, so it’s easy to fake these things. You can/should report it as a real leak though, so we may stop these users from trolling other users with fake names.
Where do I report a leak?
Either send a Private Message to me, Wololo, or any other mods, so we can take action.
You may also send me an e-mail to email@example.com
I CAN’T SEE THE NINJA RELEASE!!!
Chill out, you’ll eventually see it, just check the site every 5 hours or so.

Can I contribute somehow?
If there’s something in which you think you can help, ask me.
If you want to donate I will make a donate link available at launch.
How many people are behind this?
Lots of people. I will name them all when time is right.
Is VHBL all we got?
Like I said before, TN will release a new kernel exploit, and when he does, I will port it to this exploit. Other than that, there are a few surprises with this release.
