    Currently, there isn't anything available. You have to wait until somebody finds an exploit that runs through a game, which takes time, then you have to wait for that game to be announced publicly. Then it's a race to download the game before Sony pulls it and patches it before tossing it back on PSN as just another unexploitable game. Once you have a game to use, you generally have to use a special save in order to access the hack.

    As of now though, we still haven't gotten to Vita mode stuff. We're still only within the realm of PSP mode, and even then, it's generally not worth staying behind to use the exploits since you lose access to all the great updates with stuff like PSN. I would recommend getting another PSP if you want to work with PSP mode anything.

    Technically, if he has a modded PS3 that can access PSN, he could buy and download exploitable games and transfer them to his PSVita as-is, but it's just easier to stay up-to-date, reap PSPlus benefits and wait for ninja releases if you really, really want PSP Mode that much. No native PSVita hacks so far, sorry!

    No PSVita hacks but you can go out and buy this wonderful game called, Persona 4 Golden.

    It's exactly the same as PSP HBL homebrew of yore.

    You're partly right in that this brand of PSP homebrew is much harder to maintain and acquire. That's the difference.

    Currently there's not a lot you can do on a 3.18 Vita. Currently I believe the only exploitable game still on the PSN store is Z.H.P., but I don't think the exploit files have been released for anything but the Japanese version; even then the exploit is only compatible with a handful of homebrews and requires an unreleased kernel exploit to run any sort of PSP-mode CFW. There're no Vita-mode hacks or homebrews currently available.

    THANKS GUYS FOR ALL THE INFO AND HELP. Looks like I must be patient then :)

    Any possible way to downgrade so as to get an exploitable?
