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."

You don't need to do that cfwprophet but thanks anyway !

I was thinking to make a topic and put all what i did and what i'm doing on it but i think it's a little bit too late.

Some people probably don't understand why all that are on the firmware update/CMA topic.

It would be nice if we can create a topic for all the PS vita underground stuff (not only mine)

Between 0 and 0.04 (picture shows the helloworld with my python/pyusb script available on PS3news) and about the video, i show that the PS Vita is really turned ON (and not off) and on debug USB mode.

This is just the beginning

After a test and some kernel playing.

Check the error of my PS Vita

Just to clarify that is not only a simple Hello world, it's also show you how to communicate with the PS Vita, in here we don't talk about the variant of the PS Vita but about the process of the PS Vita and as you can see i don't need to launch any program from the PS Vita to make a Hello World possible.

(simple example) -> The difference between the PS Vita and 3DS, it's that with the PS Vita you can communicate by USB Transmission, on the 3DS you can't.

BIG NEWS !!! I found the PS Vita USB Debug Mode ! finally ! i was working on it from the beginning with all my other stuff... finally it's here, i'm gonna make a video to show you. Get ready for it !
