    Sure, running PSP homebrews on Vita is fun, and VHBL is a very nice piece of work, but it’s about time we move on, isn’t it?
    Developer yifanlu started a new project called Usermode Vita Loader (UVLoader), it will be a homebrew loader for the PSV, basically.
    Not PSP homebrews, but native PSV code, isn’t it awesome?

    This project is based on a PSV exploit he found (there are no details about this for now, for obvious reasons), but it’s still in its early stages.

    Just a few lines of code have been written so far (you can find the code on his github), so, back to the title, developers are needed.
    If you’re a developer and you want to help, fork the project on github or get in touch with yifanlu on /talk or on IRC (#vitadev on EFnet).

    If you’re not a developer, there’s nothing for you…yet. But it’s still an awesome news, isn’t it?
    And please, avoid asking useless questions: there’s no release date yet and it doesn’t work for now, just be patient for now and let the developers do their job.

    Yifan Lu will eventually post updates about this project on his blog or on twitter, so make sure to follow him.

    Last but not least, congratulations to yifanlu for his Vita hack

    This is surely a great start for the PSV scene!

      Sure, running PSP homebrews on Vita is fun, and VHBL is a very nice piece of work, but it�s about time we move on, isn�t it?
      So much truth in that one phrase!

      In any case if this great project goes well i will finally have a good reason to pick up a psvita.

      Although I have 0% interest in the vita as a games machine I constantly find myself drawn to it in the hope it will be hacked.

      Today marks a great start, I might finally pick one up after this is completed

      I wonder if PSP homebrew can be easily modded to work and take advantage of he vita.. A mightier Daedalus FTW

      Another step for the PlayStation Vita to be potentially fully hacked.

      Good to hear but a exploit does not mean a permanent way in, for all we know sony patches it next month or it never really works out in the first place still nice to hear there may be a way in.

      his exploit is only the user layer and not any deeper to allow for what we all want. it might lead people to program a user layer exploit that can go down a deeper layer.

      I'd be pretty content if this didn't lead to anything else for a long time. Sony probably won't just let it be :\.

      Just a comment... "PSV" is a file format used in game saves (intended to export/import game saves between sony consoles)
      Its common between PS3, PSP, and PSvita... all this sony consoles recognizes this format

      So i suggest dont use "PSV" as an acronym of "PSvita" because will confuse people.
