    Wololo says this means "and potentially down the road, PSP iso loaders. ", but he clearly did not watch the end of the video linked. Davee loads up Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters via the homebrew screens, which is only available as a full PSP game. This means he HAS to have found a way to load PSP isos on the Vita.

    EDIT: Since I pointed out the fact to Wololo he didn't watch the entire video, he said this to me in reply:
    He also slightly changed his original post to include that fact.

    EDIT 2: I completely forgot this site lets you post youtube videos directly, I can have retarded moments. Here is the video:
    Skip to about 5:05 to see him loading up Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters EUR version.

    Thanks for making this thread, Xuphor. I'm incredibly lazy :P

    It doesn't surprise me Davee figured this out first. He had a track record of being a trailblazer on the PSP scene. Let's just hope this upcoming homebrew will be easy to install (i.e. free) when released. :)

    My main concern is that even if it is free, the CMA we'll be forced to used to install it won't block it somehow. Also that it doesn't require a PSP game already purchased, like the VHBL did. Sony pulled the exploited PSP game within 4 hours, I'm sure they'd do it again if it's another game exploit.

    Let's just hope Davee can push this out before Sony blocks it. :unsure:

    It's not unheard of for a company to pre-patch an unreleased exploit.
    Read up about DSiHax and update 1.4.2 if you don't believe me.

    They don't have to block a specific exploit, they can simply block the 'process' if you will.

    Nobody mentions that it's signed eboot so he hasn't got a way to fully play them yet.

    its a good start for psp on the vita. exploits within the psp vita firmware is so much better than using a game to load homebrew

    All he's done is load a legally purchased PSP eboot from the PSN store. The Vita is already set for playing games so he just asked it to load a different one. Sorry folks, no ISO loader and definitely not one from Davee (he leaves that stuff alone)

    You don't seem to understand what Kernel access means. By launching an application in Kernel mode, you are allowed to bypass all posts of security checks as the system assumes the integrity of the Kernel. ISO loading has been attempted in User mode but the only successful loaders work in Kernel mode, to which *he found access just now*. If he releases this exploit, pro-piracy or pro-backups hackers will take it from there, *especially* since Sony already pissed them off by not allowing PSP game transfering outside Japan and with their general attitude towards modding, hacking and homebrew. On the side note, looks like I'll be getting a Vita sooner than expected. :)

    This is a great advance on the PSVita homebrew scene, we're near full access well... inside the PSP emulator, but still.

    The only problem now is how Sony will react? Is it worth getting banned from PSN and your vita banned too for stuffs you can securely do on your old PSP?

    The structure of PSN allows for user account banning, but the console itself will remain intact. Sony will probably just release an update, what else can they do?

    It has gained KERNEL MODE.

    KERNEL MODE = FREE ACCESS.
