    Once again Sony releases another useless update for the PSVita. As of August 7th 2014, update 3.18 is ready to download. I only found out because I woke up this morning to a notification that my Vita had already downloaded 3.18 and wants to install it. Other than finding out it improves system stability, I see nothing in the changelog, but I dont doubt this is in response to the 3.15 exploit floating around online. We’ll keep you posted as we find out more.

    Quote from Sony website:

    Main features in system software update version 3.18 (including 3.15, 3.12 and 3.10)

    New for 3.18:

    System software stability during use of some features has been improved.

    Hackinformer presents ARK which is port of the PSP’s Pro CFW, an alternative to Total_noob’s TNV eCFW. You will see many features in this new version of Ark for firmware 3.15 for PSvita.
    Now if you are looking for a 3.15 release, you have to show some love to it’s developers, who put in a lot of hard work and time for something we can all enjoy. :)

    More info:

    What is ARK? Basically it’s an alternative to Total_Noob’s TNV eCFW. ARK is a port of the PSP’s Pro CFW, for the PSVita and it bring features that might be lacking in eCFW. In this new version of Ark for firmware 3.15, as demonstrated in the video below, many features have been updated. If you are looking for a 3.15 release, then show some love to it’s developers, who put in a lot of hard work and time in for something we all can enjoy. 

    You can donate to Qwikrazor here and Acid_Snake here,

    To answer the question that will be fired in rapid succession by everyone watching “when could we see a release of a VHBL, TN-V or ARK?” Well, that’s up to the people that spend countless UNPAID hours working so hard to bring you all your favorite retro and homebrew games to the PSVita with eCFW or VHBL.  

    If I was a gambling man, I’d have to guess to the next release of ANY kernel exploit allowing ANY eCFW would be after the launch of the Playstation TV. If you read between the lines, you can assume that these kexploits are yearly releases, but hey, who knows? Maybe the devs will surprise us all if we show ‘em how much we appreciate their work.  But for now, just sit back, relax and wait to see what the next big move is, because I have a feeling it’s going to be something good for everyone. :)

    All credit goes to qwikrazor87, Acid_Snake, codestation, GUIDOBOT, DS Marine, xerpi, & lets not forget the original PRO Team.

    ARK is the PSP eCFW that you may want.  You’ll be able to take advantage of a lot of PSP Homebrew and other stuff thanks to the support ARK eCFW provides. The list of featues is quite impressive.  Some include support for your PSX games, a customizable menu, plugin support and a lot more…

    The Wii U scene has been up in arms over a web browser exploit that was recently leaked (then later on, officially released).
    Though the files were only recently leaked, Nintendo had already partially patched the exploit in firmware 5.0.

    Wii-u Browser exploit tested on a PS Vita causing an infinite loop on (Ps vita) browser. heleius made a youtube video, showing that loop with this exploit. Thist raised some questions about a possible CFW. Eitherway this is good thing for further exploring Ps Vita’s vulnerabilities. As you may see, wololo team and specially heleius are in the *zone*, razor-sharp as always.

    To quote:

    The files are readily available to the public, but won’t do anyone without access to a web server any good (though it’s reasonably easy for anyone to set on up on their local network. If required, some tools will definitely show up).  I personally don’t own a Wii U but we all know that leaks hurt any scene more than they help. That being said, since the files are readily available I decided to test them out. On the PC the exploit simply shows up as an empty iframe, but when tested on on the Vita, this exploit appears to put the Vita into an infinite loop on the browser. I made a YouTube video of the exploit in action on my Vita you can watch below.

    For those of you reading this on your Vita you can check out the Wii U browser exploit in action by following this link. http://hackinformer.com/p/wiiu/index.html

    So what does this mean for the Vita, could a possible native Vita hack come from this? In the hands of the right devs could this lead to the first Vita CFW? Or is it little more than an auto reloading browser?

    Don’t get your hopes too high: Fail0verflow had explained a while ago that the reason such exploits can run on the Wii U is because the NX bit is not set within the browser on the Wii U. This, as far as we know, is not the case on the PS Vita (and has been confirmed at least by Yifan Lu here).

    Nonetheless, it is interesting to see this Wii U hack running on our beloved handheld, and people might find additional vulnerabilities on the Vita that could make this useful eventually.

    I’m not big into the PS Vita scene, like i am with the PS3 Scene, so i don’t fully know nor understand what is going on with this hack, i do know the Vita scene, just like the Wii U scene is basically non existent, so this may be a lift in morale for those looking for a native PS Vita hack.

    This native hack is by KoalaVita who posted a video of exploits he had been working on, which i of course questioned the legitimacy of and it hadn’t really crossed my mind again until the weekend, when he posted on his twitter account asking for beta testers, i was offered but didn’t take it up, as i was in bed, but a couple of trusted Ps Vita scene members such as Hackinformer and heleius did test this exploit and confirm that it is indeed legit and works.

    Here is a quote from heleius:

    At first I was a bit skeptical when I heard the news, but after a little chat I mentioned how I would love to have Netflix, a US only app, running on my VitaTV, which uses a JP account. Within 10 minutes of our conversation, Koala had Netflix ready to go on my VitaTV. No crazy tricks or anything, I simply put the folder he sent into my Vita directory and copied it with Open CMA r5.

    If you want to read more information on this, check Hackinformer’s blog on the link below:
    KoalaVita’s Region Bypass Hack

    You can also follow KoalaVita by clicking this link.


    PSP/PS Vita developer Wololo has given an explanation on this “hack” and it seems that it is more of a well known trick than a useful hack, here is a small quote from his blog:

    We have an article ready that explains the whole process, as we believe the Koala team has done it. We believe this trick will only let people install a very limited subset of free apps and demos (Netflix, JP eReader,…), which, really, besides the excitement of tricking the console, and the possibility to install Netflix on a vitaTV, is not going to be extremely useful. I, for one, believe the “Netflix on Vita TV” thing is awesome enough that it deserves an article on its own, but I would not call this a groundbreaking hack.

    The plot of the game is that some “Catcher” for an unknown reason into a world of 1D. There’s a voice out of nowhere and says, well, we need help, we were attacked by the evil pixels, save us, you’re elected. The challenge is to catching pixels. When one of them falls into the white area you have to press X or O. As the game will meet

    * Added ‘Plugins installer’ to recovery menu (Plugins -> Plugins installer ->).
    * Added option to hide non-working items in XMB (these items will be hidden: Character Set,
    UMD Auto-Start, USB Auto Connect, Format Memory Stick, Power Save Settings, Network Settings and Remote Play).
    * Added option to hide the volume bar in the home menu.
    * Fixed bug that made some ISO’s showing as corrupt.
    * Fixed plugin loading crash.

    * Renamed ‘Hide CFW folders’ to ‘Allow anti-CFW games’. People who play DJMAX game should enable this.

    If you have TN-V4, you can download it directly from inside the eCFW itself on the PS Vita, if you haven’t installed it yet, then grab it from Hackinformers website:

    Wololo made a quick easy to follow guide to use SKFU’s proxy tool. This will allow you to sniff incoming/outcoming traffic and learn how your PS4 communicates with Sony’s servers. Huge thanks for this one to Wololo and many kudos to SKFU.

    To quote:

    The following guide covers the very basics of how to install and run a proxy server on your local computer to use with your PS4. This allows you to study how the PS4 communicates with Sony’s servers, for various reasons. A proxy lets you block some of the traffic (which has been useful in the past to let users access Netflix on their PS3 even when they didn’t have PSN access), or replace some of the traffic with connections to your own server (useful for being able to connect to the PSN on a lower firmware), or simply because you’d like to know what type of information your console sends to Sony’s servers.

    Charles proxy is probably the most popular proxy around here, but it is commercial software. Thankfully, scene dev SKFU has been creating and updating his own proxy server for windows, and this is the tool I will be showing today. There’s nothing really complex with installing and running SKFU’s pr0xy server, but many people assume it’s difficult and don’t even give it a try. Hopefully this tutorial will prove them wrong.

    Wololo strikes again, now running Emulators on the Vita TV. Mathieulh (beta-tester) of TotalNoob’s upcoming TN-v4, and to own one of the Japan-only Vita TVs. He was successfully able to run TN-V on his vita TV.
    This is getting interesting, they always find a way to make this products even better.

    If you dig, running emus for the major old school consoles, GBA, SNES, Neogeo, megadrive, NES and Nintendo. Well spect more news from their side.

    If you have read my Vita TV review (and if you haven’t, do it now!), you know I have been hugely disappointed by the device so far, mostly because of the poor level of its game compatibility and services offer.

    Mathieulh, of ps3 and psp hacking fame (remember pandora batteries?), happens to both be a beta tester of TotalNoob’s upcoming TN-v4, and to own one of the Japan-only Vita TVs. He was successfully able to run TN-V on his vita TV, now making the device much more interesting to my eyes.

    TN-V is a homebrew enabler running in the PSP emulator of the Vita (and now Vita TV). It lets users, among other things, run emulators for the major “old school” consoles, such as the GBA, SNES, Neogeo, megadrive, NES, Nintendo 64 etc…

    TN-V also has support for psp plugins, homebrews, and also the infamous “psp backups”. Let’s just say the possibility to run emulators alone makes the VitaTV that much interesting to me.

    Below are a few screenshots of the VitaTV running TNv4, as shared on Mathieulh’s twitter:

    According to a NeoGaf member, who bought PS Vita TV, says the device is locked to only having the ability to use his Japanese PSN account, it will not let him use his US account, now this is a strange move by Sony, considering the PS3, PS Vita and PS4 are all region free, but then it could be a way for keeping the console in Asia, until they plan to release it worldwide, that’s if they decide to, im sure that the region lock could be disabled via a future Firmware Update.

    10.1.4. any additional terms provided by the Software publisher; and
    10.1.5. any additional terms provided by the company that operates the social network you use (for which you might have to have an account).

    10.2. When using community features, you may be able to share messages, comments, pictures, photographs, videos, game assets, game videos and other materials and information (“User Generated Media” or “UGM”). When doing so, you must behave decently, respectfully and with consideration for other people. You must not share anything that is offensive or vulgar or use community features to harm or alarm anyone. For example:
    10.2.1. do not share anything that is defamatory or racially, ethnically, religiously or sexually offensive;
    10.2.2. do not act in a threatening or bullying manner;
    10.2.3. do not stalk anyone;
    10.2.4. do not access, use or distribute any content or material that infringes someone else’s privacy or intellectual property rights
    10.2.5. do not conduct any activities that violate any applicable laws; and
    10.2.6. do use common sense and good manners at all times.

    11. Creating and Sharing Online
    11.1. UGM created and shared by you belong to you but we and, where applicable, the relevant Software publisher still have intellectual property rights in your UGM so you must not commercially exploit UGM without our consent and the consent of the Software publisher.

    11.2. You authorise us and other PSN users, to use, distribute, copy, modify, display, and publish your UGM, your PSN Online ID (and, if you choose to use it, your name) throughout PSN, the Sony Entertainment Network and other associated services such as websites associated to the Software. You also authorise us, without payment to you, to license, sell and otherwise commercially exploit your UGM (for example, selling subscriptions to access your UGM (alone or in combination with other UGM) and/or receiving advertising revenue in connection with UGM), and to use your UGM in the promotion of PlayStation® products, Software and services. You recognise that we and other PSN users may alter your UGM and you waive any moral rights you may have in your UGM. By posting UGM you are telling us that you have all rights necessary to post such UGM and to grant the rights set out in this paragraph.

    12. What if I have a bad experience online?
    12.1. We want you all to enjoy our online community but we can’t guarantee that everyone will behave properly. As such, we accept no liability to you for other PSN Users’ activity and UGM and no liability to others for your activity and UGM.

    12.2. If you experience any unacceptable or inappropriate behaviour in-game, we want you to let the relevant publisher (which might be us) know.

    12.3. Although we may enable you and other users to post to social network services, we are not responsible for those services. If you experience any unacceptable or inappropriate behaviour on a social network service, please report it to the social network service using their grief reporting process.

    13. Reporting from games we publish
    13.1. To assist you in our Games and for functionality we provide via our Authorised Systems (e.g. PSN messaging), we include grief reporting mechanisms where we think they might be most relevant. For example, you’ll see a report option next to messages you receive on PSN and in-game reporting tools in each of the games we publish, if that game offers the ability to share UGM. If you use the most proximate grief reporting tool, when you submit the report, you may also be able to send us applicable evidence which will help us assess your report. For example:
    13.1.1. if you report a PSN message, when you send us the report you will also send us a copy of the message you are reporting and any attachment to it; and
    13.1.2. if you grief report a game asset or level that someone created, when you send us the report you might also be able to send us the asset or level.
    Of course, this means other people can grief report you and your UGM too.

    13.2. If there is no grief reporting facility within a specific game we publish, please go to eu.playstation.com/griefreporting to make your report.

    14. Are we monitoring PSN?
    14.1. Yes but we can’t monitor all PSN activity and we make no commitment to do so. However, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to monitor and record any or all of your PSN activity and to remove any of your UGM at our sole discretion, without further notice to you. Your use of PSN and our community features may be recorded and collected by us or sent to us by other users as described in 13.1. Any information collected in this way, for example, your UGM, the content of your voice and text communications, video of your gameplay, the time and location of your activities, and your name, your PSN Online ID and IP address, may be used by us or our affiliated companies to enforce these Terms and the SEN Terms of Service, to comply with the law, to protect our rights and those of our licensors and users, and to protect the personal safety of our employees and users. This information may be passed to the police or other appropriate authorities. By accepting these Software Usage Terms, you expressly consent to this.

    14.2. Use of the community features provided by your Authorised System and authorised Software published for use on it in accordance with the applicable agreements described in clause 10.1 will not breach clauses 6.2 and 6.5 of these Terms.

    15. Online Stores
    15.1. Whilst using Software online, you may have the opportunity to purchase items from an online store, using your SEN wallet. All purchases are made from Sony Network Entertainment Europe Limited and are subject to the SEN Terms of Service. Please check usage rights and age ratings for each purchase as these differ from item to item. Stores may not be available in some countries and some languages see eu.playstation.com/legal.

    16. Software Updates and End of Service
    16.1. Software may be updated from time to time, which may include adding to or removing existing functionality.

    16.2. We and other publishers sometimes find it necessary to cease online support for a game. This means that features such as online multi-player and leaderboards will no longer be available. If a game is an online-only title you may no longer be able to use it.

    16.3. If we decide we need to turn off online support for a specific game, we will endeavour to announce that decision with at least 90 days’ notice via our game forums and at eu.playstation.com/gameservers.

    16.4. Other publishers may withdraw online support for their games and may notify you of forums or websites you should check for updates.

    17. Copyright Ownership
    17.1. All Software contains library programs, the copyright to which is owned by Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. and exclusively licensed to us. Other copyrights and intellectual property rights subsist in the Software and may be notified to you from time to time.

    18. Enforcement of Software Usage Terms 
    18.1. You agree we can enforce these Terms against you in respect of all Software whether or not we are the publisher.
