PS Vita 3.69/3.70 Jailbreak Public Service Announcement

PS Vita 3.69/3.70 Jailbreak PSA

First of all, thank you for your patience and support, your wait will soon be over. It's been more than half a year since the release of h-encore and it has reached nearly half a million downloads!
Now it's time for my second and last jailbreak for the PS Vita. Unlike previous exploits chains, this one will not use a WebKit or savedata exploit as entry point, but a novel one.

The upcoming exploit chain consists of a PSP Emulator Escape. This means it is exploiting bugs in the emulator to escape the sandbox and run native ARM code. While this is cool and technically very interesting, there is a catch: your device must be linked and activated with a PSN account, such that you can download and install a PSP game from the store. The problem is that in case Sony releases a new firmware which fixes this entry point, you'll not be able to access the store anymore and therefore, not be able to hack your device. Hence, some coordination is required, such that nobody misses the chance (if you're maintaining a blog or forum, please stick this PSA on top, so people are aware of this opportunity).

For that reason, I am giving you 6-8 weeks time to download and install a PSP game, then I will drop the jailbreak. This should also be enough time for you to search and buy a new PS Vita.

Follow the instructions below to successfully prepare your device for the hack:

  1. If you're on firmware 3.69, you have two options:

    • Either update to firmware 3.70 (go to Settings → System Update).
    • Or set DNS to 212.47.229.76 (go to Settings → Network → Wi-Fi Settings → Your access point → Advanced Settings and set DNS Settings to Manual and Primary DNS to 212.47.229.76).
  2. Register a PSN account if you don't have one yet (note that only 3 devices can be activated using the same account).

  3. Download and install any PSP/minis game (PS Vita or PS one Classics do not work). There are demos in most regions (if you know a title that is not listed here, please let me know):

    • EU/UK: Ape Quest
    • NA/SG: LocoRoco Midnight Carnival
    • JP: YS seven

    Unfortunately, if you can't find a demo in your region, you must either buy any PSP/minis game, or register a new PSN account in one of the regions listed above.

  4. Please make sure that your demo is a PSP/minis game. To verify, please launch the game and hold the PS button for a while. Then a quick menu should come up with the Settings option, where you can set bilinear filter, etc. If this option is not there, you've likely downloaded the wrong game. For help, please consider watching some youtube tutorials and see how a PSP game should look like.

  5. Download and install qcma to make a backup of your game (launch Content Manager on your PS Vita and follow the instructions on screen).

If you have completed the preparation, you can now sit back and come back in 6-8 weeks for further instructions. It is important that you do not unlink/deactivate your PSN account or restore your settings in this time.

Furthermore, I am looking for a cool exploit name. Best would be a name that is related to sandbox/emulator escaping. If you have something cool in mind, feel free to make a suggestion.

Last but not least, I would like to ask you a favour: if you're following me on Twitter only for PS Vita news, please stop liking/retweeting/commenting to tweets of mine that are not related to PS Vita. The reason is that I am planning to use Twitter more "professionally" in InfSec. There were so many times when I had conversations with people that got interrupted with "3.70 hack wen". I know this is partly my fault, since I didn't give you an exact ETA, but that's because I have got my own real life. I said I'd release the hack somewhen in 2019, such that I do not put myself in too much pressure, as I am currently studying and working on my Bachelor's thesis. I never asked you to praise me or look at as a god or whatever, but the disrespect of some people nearly kills my motivation. If this doesn't stop, I might completely stop working on the PS Vita.

I'm well dragged about your words... and your last sentece was very touching. I believe we'll comprehend your dedication in studying and I cheer about your success in CS career. I'll be always supporting your work and of course.. will respect your decisions.
That exploit chain is from PSP Emulator..well..I remember Ark from 3.63.. you are pretty re-emulating a new exploit using the same strategy about psp demos.. so you can nominate : Re-Xcaped or , ReEmulated or H-Emulated.
I thank you for all of your work and support for all PSVita Community.

First of all, thanks for all your hard work on the Ps Vita scene, if it wasn't for you my vita surely would be just getting dust.
Now my suggestion for the name is take again the Japanese influence like in the previous exploits, for example in Japanese escape is 逃げる or Nigeru/Nigero so you can take it with some more humor and make it NIGGERo just for fun.
Jokes aside, there are a lot of ways to conjugate that verb in this website:
http://www.japaneseverbconjugator.com/VerbDetails.asp?txtVerb=逃げる
Other alternative is a synonymous for escape in Japanese like Moreru or Afuredasu both somehow can mean leak out/pass through/come through/filter out/pour out/escape/overflow in this case H-Moreru/H-Afuredasu (Weaboos or Hentai lovers will laugh a lot with this lol) would be good names

+1 on @HolyMcDiver's suggestion.

Also, I downloaded the LocoRoco Midnight Carnival demo when I bought the Vita from another person some weeks ago on 3.70. There is an update to the demo, version 2.00. Should we take that update or leave it at the current version when downloaded from the PS Store, which shows as a simple "-" in Content Manager?

Finally, I will say that your work is sincerely appreciated by the majority of us, even some of us that are silent and patient, as opposed to some being loud and pushy FloW. Thank you.

Great job. You grow from zero to here and earned our respects over these years. If this is your farewell project, then I wanna say a big THANK YOU for everything you have done so far. Good luck in your personal life and career.

For the names, I got some in mind:
1 - "SandboxOverFlow"

or (and I think this one will be perfect:)

2 - "detta!" (出った! as it means "it got outside". The real trick on this comes when we look at other translations of "deru"(出る): outflow, go out, efflux, rise out... OutFlow there will make a perfect pun. So it could be "detta!" or "deru" (no conjugations)

I would assume once you can run Homebrew depending on your models official Firmware and the previous statements regarding Modoru and it’s compatibility with 3.69/3.70. In theory you should be able to downgrade fw to 3.65 or 3.60 respectively once your system is hacked then Enso if you desire to do so.

After the movie, The Great Escape.

Although Idaina esukepu is a bit of a mouthful, so I think it could be shortened to -- Idakepu.

Since this exploit would be the Great Escape for the Vita, and the Vita is a Great Escape from reality, so to speak.

Edit: (And naturally, the symbolism between Great Escape and jailbreak can be thrown in there.)

It is ready, but as it says in the article. The fear is that even though the Vita is on EOL, Sony may patch the exploit not long after he releases it. Which would make it useless and require a whole NEW exploit to be created for the 3.71 fix.

As such, he's given the community about a month and a half to procure a Vita, lay down the preparations if it is 3.69/3.70, so that as soon as the exploit drops, they can all rush to perform the exploit.

Sony might not do anything about it, or they might have the exploit patched within a week or two of release. It's really pretty decent of him to give everyone some lead time to get ready for it.

@rodneyoh As long as it's a PSP game/mini it should work that's what the PSA announcement says clearly. You could had created a temporary US PSN account though, then switch back to your brazilian one after downgrade.

pSpwn
sandzone
sceEmuSploit
EmuScape

That's the names I have for now. Good luck on the release of your new exploit. Hopefully I can get a PSVita by then to try this out. Also, do you think you'll do a write up on the current vulnerability for your new exploit? I'm actually interested to see how this exploit works

Perhaps PSP Escape or Escape PSP?
I think PSPE has a nice ring to it

I can honestly say I've never asked, and I don't plan to. I'm the primary software developer on a couple of different sbc devices, so I feel your pain. I just ignore it and move on. Thanks for your work.

Fantastic news. Presumably we’ll still be able to use PS4 Link?
I’ve just downloaded Monkey Ball free demo on my Vita in anticipation:-D

@TheOfficialFloW - Ahhh I thought a demo would be suitable? I’ll buy a minis game in that case :-)
