PS Vita Half Byte Loader (HBL) Progress Update By Wololo

165w ago - Following up on his previous update, PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has shared a progress update on the PS Vita Half Byte Loader (HBL).

Additionally, Nabnab has also made available a video showcasing some hidden PS Vita information for those interested!

To quote: A quick report: I'm making some progress on porting HBL to the Vita. Although I'm sad to say that I can't get syscall estimation to work, I got some major homebrews such as Doom to run already, so overall I think it's in an acceptable shape.

Because it is roughly stable now, today I focused on porting HBL to the EU version of the exploited game (I was working - obviously - on the Japanese version of the game so far). This went smoothly and I can confirm HBL runs fine on the EU version of the game, although of course I could only test on a PSP, not on a Vita.

I used the opportunity to refresh my two guides, how to write a binary loader and how to port HBL. The guides are now simplified, and the binary loader tutorial now has download links to the tools used in the examples.

Writing the first "usable" version of HBL for the patapon exploit took several developers and about 4 months. Thanks to the portability of HBL, bringing it to Teck4′s exploit took me only a few days. Adapting that to the EU version took a couple hours (including porting the exploit itself), so I am confident for the US version.

Now that we know that $ony will remove games without an exploit actually being released, can we troll them by announcing exploits for their most popular games. Eventually they will get sick of losing revenue for no reason, and will delay the time until they pull games. This would potentially give people more time to buy them in the future.

The only problem is communicating which one is real to the community without $ony knowing.

How do you mean ? They removed the game from your Vita ?

I downloaded both games to my Vita and haven't turned it on since.

Us version doesn't work anyway...

Note for North American readers: that game, despite being available on the US Store, is marked as not compatible with the Vita in the US. People who have bought it in the US and tried to transfer it to their vita have failed as far as I know, which is why a few days ago I recommended people in the US to get a European PSN account.

Seems sony removed the game from all stores... better be quick and get the other game that has the exploit ...FAST !!!
