PS Vita: Hello World running on firmware 3.30
Thanks to japanese developer 173210, this is a thing of the past!
He was able to successfully execute a Hello World on firmware 3.30 via a well known game!
As you can see, it is possible to run unsigned code on the PS Vita firmware 3.30.
While this is simply just a “proof of concept”, it means that it might be possible to run a VHBL and TN-V on 3.30, as long as you have the necessary exploits (usermode + kernel mode).
This also means that Sony did not patch the leaked exploit games (yet), and that some of them might reuseable for a VHBL. Keep in mind that the VHBL homebrew compatibility varies from game to game.
A VHBL release for firmware 3.30 seems realistic, while an eCFW release seems unrealistic (at least for the public).
Stay tuned for more information!
