The same who released a dump of the flash0.
An anonymous hacker, who -apparently- also released a dump of the flash0 a few weeks ago, got PS1 games to run on the Vita.
Looks like the same dev who also released a dump of the flash0 of the VITA PSP emulator a few weeks ago, got PS1 games to run on the PS Vita.
Seems that, this could be a port of POPSLoader for Vita's PSP emulator. However, as of right now, the sound doesn't work yet.
According to Wololo:
The anonymous dev also said he would release his files, but, they will be useless without the associated Kernel exploit.For those who wonder, I have no reason to doubt the authenticity of the video, I wouldn’t see any good reason for a guy who has proven he has a kernel PSP exploit to then produce a fake.
It is important to clarify that our forum member the Z is in contact with this anonymous developer, but they are (AFAIK) not the same person. I tried to contact the developer through the Z, but sadly, he rejected my offer for an interview, as I am craving for details. The offer still stands, if he reads me
The developer says he will release his files if he manages to get sound to work on his hack. Without much details, I can only assume he has been porting popsloader to the PSP emulator of the vita. For somebody with good experience working on the PSP (especially HENs or CFW) this sounds like a doable task.
Well, stay tunned and watch the video below!When contacted through the Z, the dev confirmed he would not release the exploit itself, as he, like many other hackers who have access to those exploits, knows there are not enough of them.
Until then, the only way to run unsigned content on your Vita is still VHBL.
