    Just got my hands on my second vita this one hasn't been touch in a while so software is on 3.35. Only problem I'm running into is the vita isnt link to PSN Profile nor do I have my PS3 anymore. So my question do I have any hope to get vbhl or any other hack?

    PS3s are cheap. If you don't want to buy one, try a friend.
    A PS3 is the only way you're going to get the PSP game you need to do the ePSP hack.
    Once you have your one or two games, you won't need the PS3 anymore.

    Without a PS3, you cannot activate your Vita and remain on a low firmware.
    Your choices are either to find someone with a PS3 to activate your Vita or to update your console to 3.60 and say goodbye to the possibility of eCFW.

    If you consider to buy a PS3 you can also buy a PSP instead as it has all the capabilities of the eCFW without all the cumbersome steps.
    There are many great PS Vita games, it's up to you if you want to miss out on new games like World of Final Fantasy, Danganronpa 3, Digimon Cyber Sleuth, God Eater 2, Exist Archive etc. , but with all the sales every now and then you can get many really cheap.
