    Well here it is ladies and gentleman the first bit of native vita homebrew, thats right an exploit has been found and now the vita scene is about to be blown wide open courtesy of Yifan Lu and his method called Rejuvenate which is apparently now out of beta

    Ok so its a simple hello world but it looks like there is touch screen support boiled into it, and even the 3ds scene started with just this. This is the sign of many good things to come for the Vita

    You're late. :P

    http://wololo.net/2015/06/15/ps-vit...rejuvenate-platform-native-ps-vita-homebrews/ as well as many other articles on Wololo beat you to it, and there are several threads in this forum talking about Rejuvenate.

    Anyway, neither Yifan Lu nor Wololo/any other dev have mentioned Rejuvenate being a kernel exploit, so where did you get that idea? Just curious. From what I understand, they exploit functionality in the PSM runtime (it has permissions to load and execute arbitrary code), not the Vita's kernel.

    Doesn't say anything about a kernel exploit, ok it did but it doesn't know after i corrected it within a minute of writing the post. This wasn't reporting rejuvenate, i know there is a topic for that, this is reporting that there is homebrew. Hence the title.

    As for wololo thats nice but the homebrew wasn't reported here as of yet so please get off your almighty high horse

    I'm not on a high horse. I'm just saying that Xerpi's hello world isn't technically the "first". But anyhow, thank you for making us aware of his hello world. :)
