PS Vita Exploit Enables Ability To Play Pirated PSP Games


Its official, the first definitive PS Vita Kernel exploit has emerged, the hack even has the ability to to play pirated PSP ISO's, more details inside......

A hacker called "Davee" has managed to get Kernel access in the PS Vita by emulating the entire PSP kernel in the PS Vita. If your not familiar with hacking mumbo jumbom it basically means that the hack allows full compatibility with the PS Vita. The hacker has also already managed to get PSP ISO's running perfectly well using the exploit.

Davee has posted a video in youtube using a "PRX Loader" that seems to be used to run the hombrew apps. As you can see, there's a bit of Ratchet and Clank gameplay, and that reveals that Davee already has PSP isos working with this exploit.




This seems to be the first PS Vita exploit that strikes new ground.

Let us know what you think of the hack in the comments below!

Really? You guys are getting people interested in killing the Vita so soon? 

Snake said...

I understand how people think this will kill 3rd Party support, but its a news regarding the PS Vita and has to be posted :)

Rede said...

Haha, LIES!!!

Raphael Michael said...

Thanks, man! But I still don't regret I bought some of the PSP titles I had a lot of fun with for the PSVita! : D

Pokemon on a Sony console? Awesome! (but it seems weird)

Smfh said...

Just because its news doesn't make it good news. Somethings should not be mentioned or risk having the handheld ruined. It has happened before and will happen again if people keep talking about it. By putting out this news a hacker that had no interest in the might pick it up now and might be able to hack it like they did with the PSP and we all know how well that worked out for the poor handheld in the end. Im fine with hacking it so that it has features that it didnt have before ( I hacked my psp so that I was able to listen to music while playing games, and changed the UI theme to make it look like a PC or xbox) but pirating leads down a bad road. I visit your site daily but I hate it when you put out news like this.

this wont kill the device... this is kinda the r4 in 3ds that boosted its sales... if you know what i mean..

psp iso only>> good.

ps vita backups>> NO GOOD

MrRandygt said...

This is the best thing to for Ps Vita since launch. When the Ps vita dies out its because of lack of support and development from Sony
Where are the games

Sony start putting out games that will make u want to play n not just feel as thats all there is, a poor line up of games wich is the case right now. Maybe people wont have to hack it to enjoy it.

U fucked us over sony first with ur piece of shit phone n now I think its happenning again with the vita......go to hell assholes take care of ur customers cause we're dumb enough to buy ur crappy products.

Ne0s said...

it will be cool when he will make ds emulator in the vita
so we can play pokemon Black or White in the vita

Dufgdsifugs said...

 Please, just stop.  It's PSP games, nothing more.  "But it cou.." No, just stop.  "But it migh.."  No.

Strife said...

LIES! That title lies. Davee stated that he purchased Ratchet and Clank. It doesn't have iso support.

G Hernandez315 said...

I an with you. This could affect the console.

Akumuvirus said...

I actually think the Vita shouldn't be hacked so soon. It's fine the way it is to me. It's the PS3 that's the problem right now. I've also seen a video of somebody else hacking the Vita. I'm not going to ruin my Vita for some PSP games. I still have 3 old PSPs anyways.

Ivan said...

I don't think it can "kill" the Vita,they are using PSP games not Vita,and with the gaming so much evolved now it is impossible to enjoy hacked games,i think the only way that can kill a gaming unit is by introducing new more advanced gaming unit.

St├ęphane Paul said...

It was about time.!!Loll
No, seriously, It doesn't surprised me at all. But why void the warranty of 300$ investment a month or so after byin it...But it's good to know for when it won't be still on warrant.

Rball0954 said...

GUEST said...

motorstorm arctic edge game save buffer overflow exploit. Good luck getting it working since $ONY have taken it off on PSN!

hillmiw said...

Anybody know if you can play ps vita games on an older psp 3004?

Rich said...

Think about that!?

NeoOS said...

Genius!

Abc said...

random said...

yournigga said...

What the fuck are some folks complaining about.....hack the damn vita and give people the opportunity to play more games for a lesser price.....I'm tryin to imagine how svr franchise will look and function on it...

Andrew GWiz Orser said...

Where do I download or how long should I wait?

Pranav said...

where can u download it?

James 'bigmeatstick' Conrad said...

Are you guys retarded? It will be able to play PSP games, not PSVITA games. THAT would kill the Vita, not normal PSP games.

Manny7 said...

the reason there is lack of support and games is cause no software houses want to create something just so cheap ass pirates can hack it and distribute it free. If all hackers died horribly then software would be safe and prices would once again drop.

Akmad1 said...

WTF man a 400mhz pap CPU vs a 1.2 ghz ps vita CPU an u Wanamaker paly games on the psp
lk man do a research before u start speaking cause seriously this is the worst question in ps history

Babydabes said...

if people want everything for free then the games will become poor because more money is invested in drm. if u want free games get an android phone. if u want propper games buy them!

Babydabes said...

a bit harsh just becasuse you want to give developers the finger and not pay, when they invest around 10,000,000 in the game for you to enjoy

Whatsup said...

cry before the release cry when patched cry when you can't dl

Blabla said...

Developers don't care about you, they care about how much money they are going to get with their games. so you shouldn't be taking like if your momma works there.

Slow990 said...

Stfu. People have the right to know about new things. Its Sony's responsibility to prevent the hacks from happening. Why don't you get off their dick...

Ac Dumpa said...

at least you can download PSP games on the internet for free.

vitata said...

Fuck u mahn,stick ur thoughts abd vita up ur smelly arse.hack d damn vita!

NBA 2K13 tIME :)

Name23 said...

As exhibited across the vastness of the internet, digital piracy tends to lead towards people buying what they pirate. If they like it of course. On a side note, why do we have to die horribly for that to happen? Why can't people realize that money is just an illusion and if we left if behind we could go forward even faster. Go suck it and thank you for your time. How much do I owe you for the bj?

emteedee21 said...

how can i play pirated games on psvita tell me plss

poolfloatangel said...

the truth is ps vita 2.0 ghz

Kenou said...

does it still work like the super bubble pop version or is it a completely different method?

Jackblack said...

well not anybody has a psp you know, and the vita games are gonna screw people with its prices

David M said...

Well, would you go to work for free? Obviously not, unless you are retarded. Well, game developers worked very hard to make games, so pay for them! We all deserve to get paid for our work!

If one does not ethanol fireplace 101 have many fire safety tools?
Transform the fireplace area into your mini home office, it could mean that your chimney will work well.
They closely mimic the waving, fluttering, and
jumping around of ethanol fireplace 101 a real fire.
