Vita SDK making steady progress
Not so long ago, Yifan Lu asked the scene to start helping with building a Vita SDK, one of the critical components that is still missing to ensure the future of homebrew on that portable device.
It appears 2 different projects have seen the light of day.
The most recent one, led by famous Japanese hacker 173210, has been receiving (directly or indirectly) contributions from several well known names of the Vita scene: 173210 himself of course, Hykem, Smoke, Josh Axey, tomtomdu80, as well as Mysterydash and frangarcj.
You can already get the SDK at https://github.com/173210/psp2sdk. According to 173210, it is pretty much done already.

The other project, named vita-toolchain, can be found here.
I wish I could personally help these initiatives, but it’s now been a long time since I last had the time to dig seriously into coding. Parenthood and my day job are taking their toll, so I’m glad to see that others are actively contributing to this. Wololo.net is open for any kind of hosting you guys might need for these projects.
People are still waiting for YifanLu’s “big reveal”. Please keep in mind that he did *not* announce any kind of release date. Just because May 31st has come and gone doesn’t mean there was any plan to release at that point. Stay tuned.
Anyway Keep it up guys! 😉
You’re last in originality.
I’d say first.
You sound jealous. I bet you’re jealous.
Great work. Can’t wait to finally play homebrew on vita
Ohhh, that sounds delicious.
my 3.18 vita and 3.50 ps tv is ready yeah
Here’s to hoping the big reveal that requires the PSM Dev Assistant and the request for an SDK are connected.
This my friends could be the begining of a great homebrews 🙂
Are there any news about fw needed?
I bet this will upset a few moany impatient leechers lol
Always nice with a progress update. The only thing I wish they announced though is whether its safe to update the FW to whatever-the-latest-may-be-at-that-time. Personally I updated to 3.51 because I wanted to buy a game(and proxy/updateblocker had been blocked already). The PSM stuff still works fine, so I hope 3.51 is fine for the exploit 🙂 Im going to cry if they come out and announce it wont work on anything above 3.50 lol.
Ok so my question is if I have 2 vita and one is 2.02 with tnv, am I able to use the sdk?
Once the exploit is released yes (if you downlaoded the psm dev suite on your psvita)…
Yifan Lu,you are the best!!
you do realize that this is not yifanlu’s work don’t you?
But it’s him who asked for the help (of others to contribute). He practically fired the 1st canon which started this psp2SDK.
Cant wait to sink my teeth into this. Qemu ftw.
howw cann i bleeping say thankyou to Yifan Lu, i will call him cutie yufi from now on.
heh heh 😀
DONT ASK FOR DONATIONS :p
It’s about time.
Homebrew…… Emus….. Soon™
Looked at code so far. Emulators so far are not possible because some drivers are missing.
unbelievable progress .
nice done guys
“You can already get the SDK at https://github.com/173210/psp2sdk. According to 173210, it is pretty much done already.”
So how can i install it on my vita? Or is it possible yet?
SDK is not installed on the Vita, the SDK is installed on the pc and it is to develop and compile binaries to run on the vita.
git clone it and follow the instruction on your pc, then code an application, after that wait for the release of the exploit by yifanlu
excelent news, sdk maybe is one a a lot of ways to hack vita
Can i use this to play psp homebrew?
Probably PS Vita version 3.52 will come out after exploit release. Maybe Sony is working on it right now.
LOL no, the exploit itself is still undisclosed you dingus
yo can’t read, do you? stop stupidly insulting people if you aren’t even able to figure out what they write
“Yo can’t read”??? Looks like we have a dingus that can’t spell. XD
There’s a high possibility that Sony engineers might have found the same or other exploits in PSM in the past and since it’s ‘the end’ for PSM. They will definitely release a patch to disable ANY PSM codes.
This sounds like a good time to buy a ps tv.
The sdk is ok but is a long way from what the many want to do to the ps vita. Its important that we recognize this will be a long progress until we get true professionals involved at taking a crack at exploiting this console and others that have not seen that exploit light.
cant wait this is what we need.although not the end game we can still say we are moving forward.thank for all the hard work everyone involved.word
PSM exploit was said to be a user mode exploit so I am wondering why the kernel exploit can’t be released out?
Because it cant be released in.
i like this report. better than the news about texas cops almost reaping what they soe.
Is there posibility to get psm dev (other way) if i`m not developer and didnt not sing in on psm page
maybe waiting for someone to release how to invoke package installer on recent firmware :/
I have cloned the repository and installed it according to this page : https://github.com/173210/psp2sdk/wiki/PSP2SDK-Directory-Structure
I’m currently using cygwin. Anyone now how to compile a basic hello world? Running ./configure give me a lot of error. Do I have to switch to linux for this or cygwin is okay?
Dunno, but personally I’ve suffered so much with CygWin stupidities in the past, that I’d recommend using a VM instead. VMWare, if I recall properly, the freeware version let you create a Linux VM, so you can run a truly *NIX instead of that CygWin crappy-ware.
Thanks for you comment, I have an arch linux running in vmware @ home, i’m gonna try with this. I didn’t saw the travis.yml, I hope it will be working 🙂
