Good news for those who did update their PS Vita to firmware version 3.30 comes as developer The Z showcases a proof of concept video via YouTube. The developer does caution against updating your PS Vita passed 3.18 and 3.20 due to them been able to run ARK or TN-V and even the PSOne Loader. So this only goes out to those already running firmware[break].[/break] 3.30, which is said to only run VHBL. The Z also mentions via Twitter that they are trying to use one of the older game exploits that was released a while back when 50+ exploitable games was released by developer Acid_Snake. So if you happen to own the game one would not need to purchase a new one and this also prevents the developers from wasting a new and unannounced exploitable game that can be used in future PS Vita firmware updates. The game in question is yet to be announced.
