Hackers Already Close To Completing PS Vita Jailbreak

The Sony PS Vita has just released in Japan, and hackers are already closing in on a way to jailbreak the brand new next-gen Sony PS Vita handheld.

The infamous hacker SKFU is already hard at work trying to crack the Sony PS Vita, and you have to believe that it is only a matter of time before the job of done and homebrew applications are running on the handheld.

SKFU updated his blog on Friday, showcasing his attempt to try and break into the Sony PS Vita via the Twitter application.

He has been known to be a huge player in the PS3 hacking scene, and wrote in his blog that Sony changed the security on the PS Vita, making his old jailbreak method void.

He stated "The PKG's I used for my testings were pretty old and key update was expected. Nevertheless it's a disappointing but a new nice challenge. :)" ( SKFU Blog)

Sony has had a hard time over the years with hacking, as the Sony PSP was a haven for hackers running homebrew applications, game back-ups, etc. with great ease.

The Sony PS3 has proven to be equally vulnerable through a variety of hacks and exploits.

This is the first attempt at cracking the PS Vita, and it appears already that it won't be long before the security walls are broken down

My personal opinion about this is that it doesn't really prove anything or that they are even getting close to a jailbreak, it just shows that a well known hacker is working on it.

What do you think?
