July 21, 2012 // 7:30 pm - Following up on his previous update, this weekend PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has announced that a new PS Vita exploit and VHBL port in the works by Xerpi.

To quote from his blog: "Developer xerpi twitted a few days ago that he has a new user mode exploit available, and that he managed to port VHBL to it fairly easily (it took only 10 minutes to port VHBL according to what he told me).

I believe for now this exploit with remain under wraps since we are already working on a release with Neur0n, but this is of course up to xerpi.

In the meantime, enjoy a few screenshots!"

Finally, below is yet another exploit from Acid_Snake with details as follows:

it's not a PS Vita Hello World, it's a PSP Hello World for the Vita's PSP emulator.

I'm sure people somewhere will misinterpret this as the Vita being actually hacked.

With the price of the Vita after you paid for it you don't have any more money for anything extra. I was lucky it came with a free memory card.

prob best not to give hints , and sorry don't mean to be insulting but you can afford a vita but a 20$ purchase is too much for homebrew?
