Homebrew Preparer: no more headaches to install homebrews on VHBL

Many people have contacted me because they have been having trouble packaging their PSP homebrews correctly in order to install them through wMenu on VHBL.
Fear not, as developer SILENTGame comes to rescue you, with PS Vita Homebrew preparer, an app that does most of the work for you. Note: version 0.2 released recently fixes a critical bug that prevented the zips from actually working.

How to use

  1. Download PS Vita homebrew Preparer here
  2. unzip and run from your windows machine
  3. Select a zipped homebrew
  4. click on the big “Prepare PSP homebrew game” button
  5. Done, now you can copy the game to your CMA Data folder (remember, it is actually recommended to use Open CMA), and from there copy it to your vita, and install it from VHBL
A Nice tool indeed, and I sure hope that some updates will make it even more convenient to use (possibility to choose an unzipped folder containing one or several homebrews could be nice).
don’t hesitate to say thanks to SILENTGame on this release.

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?
