    Good writeup. One has to take the goods with the bads these days with their technology. I keep my saved personal data to a minimum on my androids and iOS devices for this very reason. I must admit, though, new hacks and exploits are always welcome when it comes to my favorite gaming devices. :D

    Speaking of news, supposedly Naehrwert got level 2 Kernel access on PS3. Im still looking into it….

      He gave the precision himself (twitter) that this was not “such a big deal”. It’s some improvement, but it could lead to nothing if nobody spends a good amount of time investigating if the thing is exploitable or not. That’s how I understand it.

      • Jd8531 says:

        I just got on twitter and saw that and He also gave some more information on his wordpress. nwert.wordpress.com/2012/09/19/exploiting-lv2/
        Seems people and sites like to twist the facts -_-

    Nice article Wololo, I like how your website keeps us up to date on a lot of things like this, not just on vita hacking. More enjoyable to visit then the other hacking websites that can feel dead for days or weeks on end.

    nice article.. for consoles it’s relatively fast patch or at least consoles has the patch even it’s late unlike old smartphone where it’s unsupported after sometime

    Yea, I’m an HTC Thunderbolt owner on Gingerbread 2.3.4 because HTC is a month past their ICS release date, but their still promising it (eventually). I would use a ICS rom but none are good enough for me.

    I just wanted to throw this out there, I think it would do magic for the sales of the Ouya: Have the option for a wii u like console/controller for it. But the real kicker would be a slot for a sim card with phone capabilities. I wish my vita could be a phone or at least a mini windows 7.
