    More great scene news for the Playstation Vita. It appears that some unknown dev has managed to get a dump of the flash0 memory of the PSP emulator of PS Vita and posted it online. According to Wololo: "An unknown Vita developer has shared an interesting link some hours ago, which contains a full dump of the flash0 of the vita psp emulator - Including the kermit modules and the psvita kernel keys! This dump can lead some professional Vita developers to kernel access, which will give us the ability to play nearly every homebrew. A backup launcher could be possible as well, but for these ones a high rank developer would be needed for programming it."

    Just seems kinda funny that it wasnt the "professional" developers to dump it in the first place. Nice one unknown person! Anyway it is good news on the Vita front.

    It probably was a "professional," just one that's clearly smarter than geohot.

    Why are they messing with the PSP emu on Vita? If you want PSP homebrew, go find a PSP. Surely people are interested in using the Vita's new hardware.

    It's a segue. A lot of people already know how to get things running on PSP. This allows them to use what the already know to start learning about the Vita hardware and OS. Learning how the Vita runs and emulates the PSP could easily lead to bigger things.

    They found the PSVita Kernel keys in the PSP emulator... I think that's a great reason, even if unknown prior to this dump, to mess with the emulator.
