    As of the release of HENkaku, this thread is now completely irrelevant. Get that instead.

    This thread is also mirrored on Reddit.


    So apparently this isn't common knowledge and quite a lot people are still getting frauded by some of these "VHBL ON LATEST FIRMWARE!!" people without knowing how to do it.

    In particular, instead of contributing to useful efforts to advance the vita scene (shoutouts to #vitasdk on freenode) these specific people have for their interest instead to sell methods that are known by the experienced vita hackers, but not known by many end users, for the sole objective of profit; basically abusing obscurity. As someone who is currently trying to contribute to the Vita via documentation, this is a little unacceptable for me. Some examples would be HackInformer (the most known) and F3bruary, and I'm pretty sure some other people will do this as well as time passes.

    So without further ado, here are three methods to install VHBL on latest firmware. They ALL require a person with a hackable Vita to do the work for you beforehand. If you don't have anyone, read the end of this post. For the VHBL bubble, use Ape Escape demo as a basegame.

    **Account sharing**

    Requires your PSN login creds: the quickest but most unsafe option. The exploitable Vita makes a VHBL bubble via the method of their choice, makes a CM backup, and sends it to the latest firmware Vita.

    Pros: easiest and fastest method.
    Cons: requires psn login.

    **Backup hacking**

    Requires a backup and physical access to the latest firmware Vita. The hackable Vita owner gets a backup from the latest firmware Vita, follows http://gbatemp.net/threads/coldswap-run-fully-unencrypted-playable-games-without-owning-them.427511/ to hack the backup, then gets the VHBL bubble to make a CM backup of the bubble and send it to the latest firmware vita.

    Pros: does not require giving account or swapping it.
    Cons: hardest method for hacker, requires physical access to the PS3 to activate (as act.dat, the file to activate a Vita, is console unique).

    **Account swapping**

    The hackable firmware Vita creates a new account, creates the VHBL bubble there, then sends a CM backup of the bubble to the latest firmware VIta. The latest firmware Vita either formats his vita or get a separate memory card for the new account and transfers the CM backup.

    Pros: does not require end user input from the latest firmware vita.
    Cons: have to switch accounts, memory cards aren't cheap.

    For those who have no friends with a Vita: I am unfortunately not able to offer accounts anymore, due to lack of access to a PS3 for a long time. Sorry :(

    If you want someone to make you an account using one of the other two methods, make sure to leave a request in this thread. Note: I do **not** recommend giving away your PSN login creds unless you have absolute trust in the other party!

    I want to get this done. I've done so much research trying to find something. If you are saying there is a way to get emulators going on my vita I will do whatever I can do to help.

    I also have a 3.60 PSVita which I would love to use for at least emulators, I will send you a PM. And thank you very much for clarifying the process.

    I was wondering the same thing. I can't seem to pm either. Might be because of the newbie status.

    Probably I'm just glad some ones out there trying to help I have almost been scammed 3 times in 2 days.

    That is no surprise as if you only have 3.60 then you can't do it with that alone. But if you want to use your psn account then you will have to give your creds to login. No way around that.

    I don't understand something with the last method. If I have only one memory card and I want to play with my account, do I only need to format once to install vhbl and then reformat to use my account ? I can make a backup of my game and data on my pc and save on ps+, but I want to be sure I can play with my account after.

    No, you can't use both at the same time (you can if you use any other method listed here.) You will need to get two separate memory cards or bother with switching account each time.
