Only 'minor enhancements'...
The next Vita update is live, 'minor enhancements', according to the official Sony PS Blog, but apparently it also blocks VHBL Loader.
The new PlayStation VITA firmware update, which is version 1.65, is live, according to the official PlayStation blog.
It contains only "Minor enhancements":
Looks like not too much will be added, but you are warned in case it contains a few other "security" fixes.Hi, everyone. The next PS Vita System Software Update (v1.65) will be released soon and will include the following minor enhancements:
- A “Notification Alert” option will be added to Settings, so you can toggle alerts on or off
- “After 10 minutes” will be added to the time options under Power Save Settings
- An Arrow icon will now appear when PS Vita finds new activities in the LiveArea
- Caps Lock will be supported in the On Screen Keyboard
Apparently, it currently blocks the current VHBL (Vita Half-Byte Loader) exploit, according to a post at Wololo's website...
So, you are warned!Just updated to 1.65 f/w.
I knew it might be a problem, but decided I wanted access to PS Store more than I wanted the homebrew stuff.
Result - no more access to homebrew, so DON'T upgrade to 1.65 if you want to keep VHBL working.
PS - The game reports that the save file is corrupted and won't allow the game to run before you allow it to create a new savegame.
I tried re-installing the game and the exploit, the open file manager still allows the exploit to be copied over, but the game still insists the save file is corrupt - so preventing VHBL from initiating.
Got to get to bed now, catch you all later.
