    It's no longer possible because the game that was used to hack it has been taken down. You should wait for the next game announcement.

    Here's how it goes.

    1 - No hack is available for a while.
    2 - Hackers announce a hack is coming up.
    3 - Hackers announce the game. You need to buy the game from the online shop and wait.
    4 - After people have the game, the hack is released.
    5 - Sony immediately (like within 24 hours or so) pulls the game from the online shop and fixes it.
    6 - Since the game is removed+patched, the hack is dead.
    7 - Go back to step 1, waiting for the next announcement.

    It's worth noting that all current available hacks are only for the PSP emulator in the Vita, so are only capable of doing as much as a CFW PSP. Even then, that's only if a kernel exploit is found, most exploits are only usermode which allows the loading of some homebrews with variable capability, but no full PSP or PSX games.

    If yours is still on 1.67, you can still mod it for PSP kernel hack. You need a PS3 to download the game, though.

    As far as real Vita exploits go, there's one known exploit for usermode access, which similar to the PSP one wouldn't be capable of loading games, only homebrews. It's also currently only known to two people, yifanlu and skfu, who are waiting for someone to make a Vita open SDK so people can actually write homebrews for it.
