It was back in 2012 when PlayStation Mobile launched and just a couple of weeks later YifanLu came up with something called UVLoader (UserlandVitaLoader). One can see his project as a Hombrew-Loader just like the famous VHBL (Vita-HalfByteLoader) for PSP and ePSP. This native usermode loader was never released and later announced to be "patched" for newer Firmwares. However to make UVLoader run, a usermode exploit is needed. In 2015 just after the PSM Service shut down, YifanLu decided to release his PSM Exploit as it will be of no further investigational use in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I really need a PSM Dev License to run this?

Not anymore! Yifan found a way around the licensing.

Can I make use of this on my PSTV?

Yes! You will need the Dev Assistant for Unity installed.

Is this worth updating from 3.18 or any older Firmware?

This hack works on all 3.XX Firmwares for now. It's your choice!
