    I just wanted to know if I have understood correctly,

    yet there is little to play PSP games and PS VITA not?

    And if we can not, why?

    Last question, from what little we firemware maximum hack the PS VITA?

    And what's the point if the hacker can not play games PS VITA download.

    (Sorry for my english i'm French :3)

    Ok...not entirely sure what you're asking here...but I'll take a guess and assume....

    ONLY PSP MODE can be hacked currently on the Vita. To do this, you need to OWN one of the Exploited games on the appropriate firmware (see chart below in spoiler) in order to modify PSP mode.

    In PSP mode, ONLY PSP HOMEBREW (and, in some cases, ISOs) CAN BE PLAYED. There are no full Vita hacks released to the public yet, this is because the Vita's security is a big step up from the PSPs. You can find all of this information in the Vita hacking overview that was in the stickies, which you should have read first. http://gbatemp.net/threads/playstation-vita-hacking-news-overview-faq.341851/
