    I think we will eventually get full control of the vita just in its old age but I don’t know much about programming but there always seems to be someone doing something that leads to a path to another something then eventually makes a big something and all the good hackers like coolbird will not release this un till the right time for the vita or thats what I’d like to believe:)

    we will get the cfw watch

  5. Ghadz says:

    Its too earlyto tell mate. Theres yifanlu exploit in the works right? And the release of ecfw is unexpected. There are lots of upcoming titles to vita and sony will definitely patch this kernel. Hope they wont force you to update via cartidge we will buy…

  6. Andalia says:

    We may never? What the heck, we know so little about the Vita itself, we maybe crushed a couple of projects for the PSP emu, but I’m sure we did not bring the Vita projects in serious threats.

    Personally, I’m sad to see Coldbird leave the scene. I don’t mind TotalNoob’s work at all – and in some ways I support it since Sony is lagging behind in giving us what we want.

    That’s all I want to see though. If we push any harder we could actually crack the PS Vita and if piracy becomes easy to do on it, we’ll just destroy a cosole that had HUGE POTENTIAL. I didn’t pay $300 to have it become a PORTable brick. I want to see some good exclusives in it’s 10 year lifetime. Let’s not kill it in the first year by releasing a Vita KXploit.

  8. Jethro says:

    Given such circumstances, what we need is luck, and more manpower. But I think eventually Sony would make mistake or someone within Vita’s team got fed up with their bosses and release the source file somehow…

    In conclusion, still luck.

    it will come sooner then later

    Hmm I think controll of the Vita will be sooner as we think. I heared that you can make a directory called “MUSIC” in the PSP Emulator via PSP FTP and it appears that THIS IS THE VITA MUSIC FOLDER. So We got indirect control of a VITAFOLDER. Dont know IF someone can do somwthing with that little thingy but I could think of a Code written into a MP3 to start something inside the Vita sytstem….
    Could this Lead to something Wololo?

    I think We may never see full CFW on the Vita. What it looks like is the Vita will be like the 3DS as it will have backup support for the previous device. Vita will support PSP backups like the 3DS supports DS backups.
    Instead of looking for exploits in games I think they should look into making a flashcard for the Vita. A card that lets either PSP backups play or even Vita backups. Do the same thing the DS does, mimmic a game and goto a menu. Maybe more steps than just that but its a start.
    As for the console sales I think a full CFW or flashcard for the Vita will make sales boom. Look at how well the 3DS is selling. It can play DS backups and the DS games are still being made and sold so piracy there isn’t doing any real damage to sales. Look at the PSP, games are still also being made for it and they are still selling so again piracy isn’t really hurting.
    I think they are using piracy as an excuse why sales are low. Thats total ***. Explain the low sales of the Vita then. There is no piracy there and the sales are really low. I think piracy will increase sales not drop them.
    Also if they had more games then it might sell better.

    As the Vita is selling ***, got just about no games and no backups its doomed to fail. As soon as there is some sort of backups playing on it sales will rise but as its still a $ony product it will always suck and $ony will kill it themselves buy locking it down even further and probably start banning consoles or accounts like they do on the PS3. NOT the smart way if you want to sell more consoles. People will just go to the competition if they did that. Noticed when the PS3 started getting banned there were more 360’s sold. $ony’s loss is Micro$ofts gain.

    In the end I see this CFW as a good thing and its now here to stay. The more they lock things down the more the hackers have to do the more they want to do it. If they just left it alone and ignored it the hackers would have nothing to do and give up. Thats the smart way but these big companies arn’t that smart.

      I totally agree with you on the fact that hacking does not kill a console, it is the contrary and if the Vita’s sells are low, it is sony fault and their policy, look at what they did (or didn’t) at last E3.

  12. Thecoldest1 says:

    Ohh and by the way I think the ps vita can reach it’s full potential if we got good people like total noob and maybe coldbird might come back

  13. Gourcuff says:

    One big dilemma is if you want to play the next big games like Assassin’s Creed we will probably have to update the Vita, but we don’t want to lose eCFW and hinder an eventual native vita exploit, so what should we do? wait (maybe forever…)?

  14. super says:

    Alright this is starting to get really annoyed with the “we may never unlock the full capabilities of the console, We may never see full CFW on the Vita.” stuff. Like I said before Coldbird is just a soldier ant (a good one at that) in a colony full of ants. Believe it or not, There are tons of people working on Hacks/Exploits on the Vita itself. And there are developers (soldier ants) out there that have their hands on sensitive information (Hacks/Exploits) on the Vita. It’s just a matter of time till someone releases their work/project.

    What happened to Coldbird’s work sucks because he is a good dev and all of the stuff he puts out was awesome. But stuff like that happens and we devs and non devs just have to stop thinking about how this is the end of the road of the Vita hacking scene. And we should start finding another route in hopes of finding a way to the road that leads us to a full vita hack.

    TL;DR= Patience is a Virtue…

    Hmmm, this article was not even written by me, not sure where you’re coming from here?

  16. Corey96 says:

    Hey! I just noticed something! That’s not the aim! PS Vita hackers and devs are trying to open the console up to homebrew and emulators, etc. Guess what! Sometimes we like to play back-ups of our games so that we don’t need to take as many hard-copies around. Believe it or not we don’t all want to pirate, but sometimes the outcome is piracy, unfortunately.

    Did you know that? Those are some fun facts, hey?

  17. Thecoldest1 says:

    Hey dude common nobody likes when people talk *** and anyways wololo did not make this thread why would you come to this site if all your ganna do is talk stuff?
