Hey guys and girls! Here is an updated list with all the compatible homebrew for the upcoming VHBL exploit. For those who don't know, we recently announce a PS Vita 2.12 VHBL exploit by developer qwikrazor87. So for those waiting in anticipation and for those who might want to download the mystery game and try this new exploit, below is a list of all tested homebrews one can expect running.
About PS Vita 2.12 Upcoming VHBL Exploit:
The lack of compatibility of PSPFiler, however, is a bummer. wMenu does not have any File manager features, and that could become a problem if no alternative exists, if only to delete/reorganize homebrews.
As a reminder, Qwikrazor’s upcoming exploit will be in a game that is only available in the US store. I explain here how you can buy US PSN Credit if you live outside of the US, and we have an ongoing tiny “contest” on twitter to win a $20 PSN Code. In parallel, I got contacted about a possible EU exploit that could be available, and I am following up on that as fast as my free time permits.

However some testers have been reporting that the exploited game is actually available for some EU stores too, but there’s a trick…
The idea seems simply that, although the game is not available directly from the PSN on your Vita, it seems possible to buy it from your PC on the PC PSN store, to then magically see the game appear on your download list on the Vita… and voila… (Update: other people have reported that they can buy the game on their PS3, and then transfer it to their Vita. A technique that has been proven to work in the past for several games marked as “not available” on the Vita)
But there seems to be a catch: although lots of trusted testers have reported to us that this technique works, roughly the same amount of testers have reported to us that the game actually does not appear in the vita download list after buying it from your PC (making the purchase basically useless). We are still unclear if this is some sort of bug on how the Vita manages some of the PSN permissions, or if it depends on the country you live in, or something else…
Nevertheless, I’ll be in touch with Qwikrazor87 to make sure his VHBL port gets readied for both the US AND the EU versions of the game, just in case. Qwikrazor actually had early versions of his VHBL port ready for the EU version of the game, but he didn’t maintain that version actively since the game was initially found to be available only on the US store. However, I’ve seen the port for the EU version, so I know the exploit works fine on the EU version of the game as well.
What remains uncertain here is if it is actually possible to actually buy the game for your Vita on the EU stores. Try at your own risk, but we’d still recommend to go with the US version for now.
