Finally, wololo reports (, to quote: "Mamosuke confirmed to me today that Teck4's exploit for the PSP Emulator in the vita is still working on 1.52.

Note that it doesn't guarantee 100% that some of the techniques used to get HBL to work on top of this exploit haven't been patched, as I haven't tested myself. But for now I'm confident. I might update to test that, at some point."

About the claim some user have read my news post on monkeydesk and posted it on gbatemp but i or you never sayed that you have HACKed the con. I named the news with "PS Vita Hot News" and translated some posts into german.

This guy then made the post with "PS Vita hacked?" or kinda like that and his first words written was like "nabnab claims to have the ps vita hacked" but some other guyes on gbatemp with a higher rep teached them they should learn to read

Now it seems they understand. But i haven't read anything about that to copy a savegame exploit to the vita we will need your work, the debug mode enabled to get full access to file sys and place the exploit where we need them. Also im sure we can get hands on on some nice importend files of the vitas fw. But anyway they will fully understand when it's time for it

USB Debug mode allow more than we expect but it's pretty unstable for now. Every person who have a PS Vita can do it and without anything else than a PS Vita and computer

Oh yes i saw that some people said that i claim i have hacked the PS Vita. I have never said i hacked the PS Vita, i explain what i have discovered and what my investigation/work is about.

Actually some executions on the PS Vita are pretty unstable and give me some errors (a security from the PS Vita that i need to fix) but i am working on it. I keep you informed for any updates of all my work and i will show you how to reproduce it when it's easy to do but need to keep it a bit as a secret before the EU/US release.

Nothing about my works but i really recommend to use the last version of openCMA on Windows -> thanks to Virtuous Flame

Ok let's back to work now

Nabnab: Does USB debug mode allow much/anything that couldn't be done before? Or is it still in the investigation stage? Also, is it hard to get into, or is it something anyone could do?

Yep, you can always start a new thread and we can merge or promote any posts made from it to the main page.. this was our ongoing thread for the Vita FW and Content Manager so people started posting here but if you wish to start your own I'm all for that too!

You could do a new Thread named with "Universal Vita Dev Thread" or kinda like that. But best would be to ask the boss he also can move all the stuff from here which hase nothing to do with the OCM to this new thread then.

Great about the wiki and shows you that maybe more peoples recognize your work then yourself expect

I also was surprised as i have googled for my work and have seen where else it get spreaded.
