April 14, 2012 // 1:25 pm - Following up on Sony's PS Vita Firmware Update v1.67, this weekend PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has announced news of a new Hello World on PS Vita 1.67 alongside details of a VHBL update with a demonstration video below.

To quote: Hope you didn’t wait too long since our last VHBL release a bit more than 2 weeks ago… This is a new PSP user mode exploit by thecobra (also discovered a while ago by WosRet), which I confirmed runs on a PS Vita with Firmware 1.67. Unlike Motorstorm and Everybody’s Tennis, this game is available in the US store as well as some other countries (details to come). Check the video and details below.

Thecobra already ported VHBL to this exploit, and we already have something running, that just needs a few tweaks here and there before being released. So far I didn’t see anything that would prevent HBL from running on Vita 1.67, but that will need to be fully confirmed in the days to come.

The name of the exploited game is obviously kept a secret until the public announcement, and if you don’t want to miss the release, remember that history repeats itself. Sony will most likely remove the game within hours following the announcement, so stay tuned.



Congrats and thanks to thecobra!

Update: Below is another brief video update (via wololo.net/wagic/2012/04/17/vhbl-on-vita-1-67-tweaking-in-progress/) to quote:

Hey everyone, quickly showcasing the work in progress for VHBL’s port to thecobra’s exploit. To be honest, thecobra’s really done most of the work here, and I merely tweaked it to clean up the code, before compiling and giving it a try.

On the video below, I’m playing doom (again? I should be a bit more creative...) on PS Vita firmware 1.67.




The release should happen soon, although please keep in mind that I also have a real life to deal with in addition to this release, so please be patient while we’re getting ready.

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?
