Release: VHBL for PS Vita 2.06

March 26, 2013

Sony removed the Apache Overkill game from their PSN stores in the past 24 hours. If you are one of the lucky people who could buy and install the game in time, you should now be able to enjoy some good homebrews on your Vita.

I want to emphasize once again that I haven’t personally tested this VHBL port. I want to stress this out, as I am usually closely involved with either testing or developing each port, but this time I decided not to. Some of our beta testers said the compatibility was poor, while other people such as the Z showed us that some emulators such as gPSP, which we thought didn’t work correctly, actually worked well. Bottom line is, VHBL is never perfect, and you’ll have some hit and miss with compatibility, but hopefully comments in this section, as well as threads on our forums should help you find compatible homebrews fairly easily.

In parallel, TomTomDu80 told me personally that he plans to continue working on this port and improve compatibility with time. This might take a little while though, as apparently he lost his existing sources in a hard drive crash, but we’ll see how that goes. For now, just download VHBL, and report working/non working homebrews :) . A few working ones can be found here, and you can also find a much more complete list with pre-packaged homebrews here, although compatibility with this version of VHBL still needs to be confirmed.


TomTomDu80 has spent a huge amount of time on this work. If you enjoy VHBL, please consider donating to him for his work.

Download and Install

VHBL for Vita 2.06 on the Apache Overkill exploit can be downloaded from the VHBL page, as usual. The page also contains explanations on how to run the exploit and install homebrews. Feel free to ask for help on our forums if you need additional help.
