And how is that some kind of "hack"? Only thing what I see is that his Vita got stuck and he was unable to proceed, Vita probably didn't shut down because of his work but rather than some kind of Sony's handler which works like "something is wrong and we cannot boot, try to make it work in 1 minute, if it doesn't work then quit".
Even if it has crashed because of his modification crash is not an exploit if you have no idea what, or at least if you are controlling something, if the NX and/or ASLR is implemented (what probably is the case) making it extremely hard to do something useful etc.
You can basically do the same with your PC, go to Windows folder and delete something, I'm pretty sure you will also get stuck with the difference being that Windows will tell you what exactly went wrong.
Go on Google and search for "PS Vita boot loop", or anything other freezing related and you will definitely see that it might be just a simple corruption which he may caused accidentally thinking he did something.

Most likely a corrupted database. Most likely not exploitable. Because if it is exploitable, it would be completely frozen instead of having the spinner move on screen.

Bootloop != Hack :|
but I suppose we don't know anything, especially because we're script kiddies and that dude is the only one serious about hacking the Vita

Well let me explain more what's happening with a new video.
+ in The Video 2 Ps Vitas with different firmwares (3,01 and 3,12) and using same psn account
+ This Bug is in Firmware 3,12 ! and not related to PSP Emulator which make it interesting !
+ @Yifan Lu, the spinner is freezing later too after some minutes. and restart the Vita after some seconds
+ its not a corrupt data base as everyone said

Devs and Hackers, you can contact Koala in his page for collaboration and Hacking progress. he did some stuffs too. and soon he will start hardware investigations too. https://www.facebook.com/koalavita

That's not PsP Emulator..., That's a Ps Vita APP... i think you didn't even read my last post... why would we fake and lie ?
well, i think Yifan lu, Katsu, Davee and devs like them will understand what happening there.

Edit 1 : if you notice the videos , there is no app open to cause that freeze. its a fresh restarted vita
