The PS Vita has hit its first rough patch.  A hacker has found a way to install unapproved apps and software on the Vita.  Should’nt be surprising since some of these Hackers are way ahead of curve, and Vita held on as long as possible as being unhackable

There’s no game gaming companies hate to play more than cat and mouse with hackers. Proving once again that no gaming hardware is hack-proof, Eurogamer has learned that hacker Yifan Lu has found an exploit in Sony’s (SNE) PS Vita handheld that will open doors to hackers to develop unapproved applications and even piratesoftware. Lu’s exploit is reportedly based on another hacker’s work — the Half-Byte Loader that allows homebrew on the PlayStation Portable — and is the first real hack for the Vita since it launched in December.

Whereas last generation’s Nintendo DS and PSP were plagued with piracy due to bountiful firmware exploits, Sony’s Vita and Nintendo’s (SNE) 3DS have remained largely safe from piracy since their respective launches. Although Lu says he will try his best to ensure the exploit allows only legitimate homebrew code to run, he also said on Twitter that there’s no telling what others will do once his exploit is made public.
