There seems to be a lot of confusion when it comes to mods lately, there’s a lot going on and it can be quite daunting trying to follow it all, especially if you’re new to the scene. I hope that by writing this we can keep the forum flooding to a minimum. let’s try to understand what these mods are and what they aim to do, if only to get a better perspective.
First we have the flagship mod of our wonderful site, VHBL. being sort of a community Developer project it combines the work of many talented people including: Neur0n, Wololo, m0skit0, JJS etc..
It’s main purpose is to run Homebrew applications on your PS Vita, in the PSP emulator on board the machine.
What it can do: Run certain homebrew applications such as Wagic, Doom, and a whole lot of emulators for various systems.
What it can not do: Run PSP ISO’s, Vita backups, Make you a cup of coffee while it brushes your teeth.
You can find various tutorials on how to install this program here http://wololo.net/vhbl/
Now let’s move on to UV Loader, Developer/Hacker YifanLu has apparently discovered a way to access User Mode on the PS Vita, Which is great news…..for the future.
He is currently seeking assistance from talented Developers, so if any are reading this head to his thread here http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=13841
What it will be able to do: Run Homebrew applications in the vita environment, using many more resources than the PSP Emulator on board the vita.
What it will not be able to do: Run backups of Vita games, install CFW or give you a magic bag of pixie dust that makes your mortal enemies cry at the sight of you.
all jokes aside, I would like to point out that it will NOT incorporate piracy. also, there is no release window as of yet so it could be a ways off from getting into our ready hands.
