March 18, 2012 // 7:58 pm - Following up on the previous PSP SaveGame exploit news, this weekend PlayStation Vita developer Zer01ne has Tweeted news of a new PSP game exploit that works on Firmware 6.60 and has also been confirmed working with Sony's new PS Vita handheld console as well!

Below is a video of it in action, and to quote from his Twitter updates:

New PSP Game exploit found (This time the game was not already used).

No plan for any HBL portage (We will see). http://pic.twitter.com/m5bUpwt7

I have broken my right arm, the VHBL portage will take time. I will try to do something on with my left arm.

The exploit works on Vita.. See video:

It would be nice to have a standalone packaged exploit, but I know this is asking way too soon. I really hope Sony's security hasn't dramatically increased since the PSP/PS3 to defeat this completely.

Perhaps a hardware solution is being worked on?

What does VHBL stand for? o.o

You really never know... Sony tends to get ahold of this info pretty damn fast... and they'll screw us over at any time. They are pretty predictable when it comes to them stripping us of features and forcing us to "pay".

Anyway I was gonna say since I don't have a Vita I'm not gonna worry about this now. It's not really hacked now anyway so there really is no point in getting one. Especially at that unrealistic price.

^^ at least one more PSP game exploit has been found which could potentially lead to another half-byte loader port and an opportunity for homebrew for those who missed Motorstorm: Arctic Edge.

- HBL is exploit for PSP
- it uses gamesave data overflow to write RAM (and load executables from memory stick)
- hopefully it can be used in PS Vita's PSP emulator (thus the name "VHBL")
- 1st VHBL is released early this month using Motorstorm Arctic Edge PSP game (downloadable from PSN)
- Motorstorm AE not available anymore @ PSN (?), therefore new Vitas user (like me) must wait for next exploitable game
- VHBL can't load ISO/backup and only access User mode in PSP emulator within Vita. only emulators/homebrews.

Any of you guys turned their Vita back on after getting Motorstorm ?

I havent turned it back on yet... (I didn't disable WiFi before shutting down).
