This might take Sony by surprise because a hacker claims he has found an exploit on the PlayStation Vita enabling him to create an application which loads homebrew code onto the handheld.
The hacker, Yifan Lu has also gone ahead to release a few lines of code of his project. He did this hoping that other developers would join in his project.
Yifan Lu’s application doesn’t necessarily links to piracy since he has confirmed that his application is not designed to enable software piracy on the Vita. Still the news is sure to have some gears rolling Sony’s house.
He did mention though that his new loader is based off Half Byte loader for the PSP.
Currently there is nothing available for homebrew fans to download.[via NeoGAF]
