Missed the Urbanix exploit? TN has something big coming for you

In the past 9 months, we have released 4 user mode exploits on this site, by letting our forum’s members know about them first, then making public announcements. This has been reasonably successful, and people who know where to look have been usually rewarded by knowing the name of the exploited game long enough in advance.

Some people still haven’t figured that out. One typical uneducated comment I can see here or on other scene websites, when we do the public announcement, is “why do you guys announce it publicly, now Sony will patch it and nobody will get the exploit in time”. Well, for those who didn’t get it yet, we announce the exploit publicly days after members of our community have known about it. This way we guarantee that people who are really interested in homebrew on their vita actually get a good chance to get the game.

The rules slightly changed with the Urbanix exploit, as the exploit for this specific game was leaked. We did try to organize a Ninja release around this leak, but we had to give up when Total_Noob released his own eCFW for that game, and Sony took the game away within hours. As a result, many people missed the chance.

But Total_Noob announced something big today on PSPKing: his upcoming update of CEF TN will bring “another chance” for people who missed the Urbanix exploit, and this will happen on Tuesday. In other words, if you missed the Urbanix exploit, there’s another game exploit coming for you soon.

Of course, if you’re actually waiting for Tuesday to get the name of the game, you are probably missing the point of my article. And by the time you actually get the information (on a related note, believe strangers at your own risk!), it will be a matter of hours, not days, for you to take the decision and buy the game or not. Not only will the game be removed from the store as soon as the announcement is public, there is the additional risk that the kernel exploit actually gets patched with an upcoming firmware.

For people who are on the Monster Hunter exploit or other previous exploits that were used in VHBL, Total_Noob told me recently his upcoming update CEF TN B will make it much easier to port his work to existing game exploits. At this point, I cannot really say if it is better for you to stay on your current exploit, or if you’d rather download the new game. In any case if you have one of those previous exploits, do not update until you actually know what the new game is.

Even more details here.

    I mean really…you all are stupid if you dont think sony dont have someone who is registered on this very site just waiting to get the name of the game. I retire all my codeing and what not for psp a while back. I seriously rather just enjoy new content. All these 14 year old who cant afford games line up praying for iso loader, while site trafic spikes. So much fun to watch =]

      They probably don’t, many of us didn’t have accounts to the forum on here until recently. Plus, only trusted Members are accepted. Even if they did, they can not do nothing about the possible game or games that may have the exploit until the files are released to the public.

        lol…just goes to show you your ignorance. Its not like i do it for work or anything. You think any developer who actually does any form of coding…hell anyone who works with computers…Sure it started as a hobby. But let me tell you guy…its the last thing you want to do when you get home. I dont devlop and release publicly you twat…it doesn’t mean i dont give valuable input on open source codes for other home brew that you yourself have probably ran in the past. Tell me hobby when you have your degree in programming with all your certs to back that it up and thats what you do for a living. But meh, i have no time for people like you. meh too much wine to argue any farther. accuse me of w/e dont think i care honestly..

    Did you idiots not read Wolo’s recent posts? Any one who posts false games, or possibly the real game, can and will be banned from here. Seems like a lot of dumb people are going to be banned for not following the rules, unless Wolo is nice to you.

    KillerBee i think you should delete your post about the wrong game GTA, you may be joking but someone might think its true and use their only $20 psn card/money on GTA and then when they find the REAL name of the mini they wont be able to buy it coz they will be broke.

    Also you say that nobody would believe it, well not everyone reading ur message has English for their first language, and Sarcasm doesnt transfer across in text very well to these members!

    Is there any way we could conveniently get an update to our email when the article containing the next exploit? I was like 2 days late on the Urbanix one, I’d love to catch it this time!!

    The only real problem is, that you loose the possibility to update your console without loosing the exploit after releasing it :(

    I think it would be really interesting to make at least some exploitable games known just by a really small amount of people + a normal ninja/public release lineup :)

      That’s already the case. The people who need to know about other kernel exploits are the ones working on them. These people have access to several user exploits, etc…

    will the title come up today? and is it vhbl compatible?
    sorry for the noobish question.

    1. wololo’s avatar

      It is not VHBL compatible. Or rather, I tried to port VHBL to this exploit and I failed. OThers might succeed, but I don’t see the point
