Viewing only articles categorized with "PlayStation TV (PSTV)".

Following up after the Announcement from @TheFloW back at the End of March this year, today @TheFloW "let the cat out of the bag" by releasing his newest Jailbreak for the PlayStation Vita, which will allow you to jailbreak both your PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV even on the newest System Firmwares 3.69 and 3.70 (which weren't able to jailbreak before). But not only that. While you can jailbreak your Devices on the specific System Firmwares mentioned before, you can also Downgrade your PlayStation Vita / TV to a lower Firmware to get the full potential of your Device like with the famous Hacks and Exploits on System Firmware 3.60 (such as HENkaku and modoru) and 3.65/3.67/3.68 (such as h-encore). So while you have been probably already prepared for this release back at the first announcement, together with the fact that @TheFloW was so kind to release his final Jailbreak even earlier as previous announced, we won't keep you on tenterhooks anymore. Here is everything you need to know.

The PlayStation Vita came quite short with some News for this Month. But don't worry. Developer @TheFloW is still there and he has some very good News for your PlayStation Vita today.

Since both the newest System Firmwares 3.69 and 3.70 are still not exploitable, Developer @TheFloW gives you in his newest GitHub Announcement an overview about what you can expect in the next few weeks with the main goal that you can prepare your PlayStation Vita with everything which is necessary needed to jailbreak those mentioned System Firmwares to enjoy your PlayStation Vita again with your favourite Homebrews while staying on the newest System Firmware. And the good thing is, it is actually pretty easy for everyone to get prepared for the Release of his newest Jailbreak! The only thing which could get worse is when you miss his deadline, he gave the community to prepare your PlayStation Vitas. Luckily with the 3G Model, you can finish the preparation while being outside and enjoying the sun together with the start of the spring time, like I already did. :)

Once again, VitaHEX Games is bringing another hit for the PS Vita & PlayStation TV homebrew community with the release of The Hallway, following the release of the smash hit of Zombiebound Reloaded, (A CoD Zombies style game) the developer is back with a Silent Hill P.T. (the infamous demo) inspired game called The Hallway. This game powered by Unity is a reincarnation of the famous PS4 demo that excited many only to see the original game canceled. Now VitaHEX brings his vision with high quality sounds that are great in a surround sound environment or as the developer suggest headphones for a truly horrifying experience[​

The developer has also published a Guide for Unity development on the PS Vita platform titled: How to setup Unity to develop PS Vita Games
With the release of h-encore 2.0 by TheFloW, the PlayStation Vita shines more and more into a strong and powerful Gaming Device by keeping the capability of using Homebrews and other cool Stuff while staying nearby on the newest System Firmware released by Sony. Together with his Release from Modoru, which allows you to Downgrade your PlayStation Vita to a lower System Firmware, Developer TheFloW won't stop here. Since his Homebrew Applications were already known before for older Exploits and Firmwares, it was just a Question of Time when his Adrenaline Application gets updated to the newest "Family of Vita Homebrew" as well. In case you ask what Adrenaline exactly is, it allows you to modify the internal PSP Emulator on your Vita which will give you full access to it, including the famous XMB-Menu. But of course your question would be, why you need this Application? Well, the answer is simple here. While the Vita supports many "PSP Classics", the internal Emulator used by Sony isn't perfect, which can lead to Games, not compatible with your Vita. But with Adrenaline, you are able to fix those mentioned problems by giving a better support for your PSP Games and especially for older PS1 Game Titles.​
So you successfully hacked your PS Vita and/or your PS TV and you want to enjoy all the cool Homebrew Releases outside for this system. Maybe you asked: How? Don't worry, there is help for you. But in fact, while the PlayStation Vita has a very strong Homebrew supply, the Installation for each Application can be complicated sometimes. Many Homebrew Applications installs on the fly so you can start immediately tinkering with it after the installation without any other work necessary to do. But sometimes, there are Plugins where you need to change various Configuration Files (like the ux0:/tai/config.txt for instance) to get them running, which means that a simple Installation won't be enough. Such Configurations and Modifications for those mentioned Plugins are necessary like when you want to Overclock the CPU from your PS Vita or when you want to Install Games which requires a higher System Firmware than 3.60 or 3.65 and modifying something wrong inside those Configuration Files manually can take some hazardous Damage for your PS Vita, which no one asks for that. But there is a simple Homebrew Solution available made by @thehero_ which allows you not only to install such mentioned Plugins automatically, it also modifies those Configuration Files by it's own where nothing can get wrong inside your PS Vita and where you won't need to rack your brain anymore. How convenient is that, isn't it?

Following up after the release of Modoru last week, which allows you to Downgrade your PlayStation Vita to a lower System Firmware to enjoy again great Hacks and Exploits written for System Firmware 3.60 or even below, today same Developer TheFloW released an updated Version of h-encore, namely with Version 2.0! While this update gives you new and additional Features like spoofing your PlayStation Vita to Sony's newest System Firmware 3.70, Developer TheFloW reminds you that if you aren't still in use of h-encore, then now it is the right time, especially since you can Downgrade your PlayStation Vita now if h-encore isn't enough for you and you want even more "out from your Device". This is recommended for a better Game Compatibility as well as for Homebrew, which needs higher Permissions from your Device, such as the famous HENkaku Ensō for instance. This update should also allow you to use the PlayStation Store more easier again but keep in mind that connecting to the PlayStation Store with a "hacked" and "exploited" Device - especially when the core of the Device is still based on a lower System Firmware - can always be dangerous and brings huge risks to a banned Account and/or similar. So please use this with caution.
VitaHEX Games is bringing the heat with his recent release of ZombieBound Reloaded (a CoD Zombie inspired game) and then with the much anticipated game (upcoming) release simply titled "The Hallway", when you see the first screenshot of this game you will see that all the title needs as its remake of the Hallway from the infamous Silent Hill P.T. demo, Then as we all know that game was unfortunately abruptly canceled, but this inspired VitaHEX to bring his vision of the game he created some time ago to the PS Vita / PlayStation TV through the power of Unity 3D which has also been seeing its fair share of PS4 Releases as well of late.. Wink Wink @ VitaHEX have any plans/interest for some PS4 ports of your awesome games creations?

Let's take a look at the recent update to ZombieBound Reloaded (v0.21 currently) as the homebrew game has seen a lot of improvements in the latest updates. Since the initial release of "Reloaded," we can now buy/unlock new weapons and purchase new levels (w/ in-game currency (gold bars)) from the Store that has now been included. 4 new weapons appear, New Level "The Hospital" has been added, New Zombie Sounds, Improved Fog and Lighting are just some of the new inclusions in v0.20 and 0.21 (which was quickly released to address a shotgun aiming bug,)​
Great news for the PlayStation Vita scene, as today developer The_Flow, just hit a huge milestone with the developer's newest release to the community, Modoru (1.0v) for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV (Vita TV) provides user's with the amazing ability to Downgrade your device with supported Firmwares up to 3.68. An incredible achievement that includes additional details below for executing this on your device.

The Homebrew Store for your exploited PS Vita / PlayStation TV known as Vita Homebrew Browser (VHBB) has received an unofficial mod, which adds a new host (Vita Homebrew Wiki) to supply the DL's.. In the official releases VitaDB was the supplier but due to a disagreement with OneLua developers VitaDB does not carry those OneLua powered Homebrew (which is quite alot of homebrew). So this mod to the homebrew browser adds their own Vita homebrew to the store on the popular Homebrew Store in this modded version of VHBB.
VitaHEX Games has revisited one of his Homebrew Games for the PS Vita known as Zombiebound (from 2017) with an update and complete overhaul of the game that is now powered by Unity. Now called Zombiebound Reloaded, the survival zombie experience is back in a big way with this recent update from the developer. This Alpha version comes with two levels and various (4) weapons available, future updates are planned but the dev might get sidetracked for good reason as the next project has already been teased and this one might really interesting.​
