(Video) Virtuous Flame introduces Vita eCFW ARK

Developer Virtuous Flame, the dev behind many projects including the recent Open CMA, just recently revealed some information on Chinese scene site duowan.com about a kernel exploit and Vita eCFW (a Custom Firmware running on the Vita within the PSP emulator) he’s been working on, dubbed ARK.

Virtuous Flame revealed that he has access to another working kernel exploit other than that of Frostegater’s, working on 2.02 and running his own version of a eCFW. This is extremely good news considering kernel exploits in the psp emu can be hard to come by, it’s always good to have more.

Virtuous Flame’s eCFW ARK is something similar to that of Total_Noob’s CEF. Virtuous Flame is already hard at work on a new eCFW Ark through a new kernel exploit, on the latest Vita 2.02 official firmware update.

ARK along with this exploit has some advantages compared to TN-C such as a neat feature of being able to instantly go into loading into the eCFW ISO menu instead of having to load the save data (note: this is most likely a feature of the game used for the exploit rather than ARK itself), like what we have seen with other exploits. Another advantage is that game compatibility and homebrew/emulator compatibility seems to be on par with TN-C, if not extremely better. The release date seems a bit unclear for now, especially with Frostegater’s upcoming exploit release.

You can see a video of it running below along with more information from the source, however do note that its not in English:

Sources close to the Pro team have hinted that more hackers than Virtuous Flame have been involved in this project, and that this could be the CFW Coldbird had been working on months ago, for which an encrypted version got leaked recently.

We will be following up with VF to get more details :)

    this is coldbird’s eCFW I think, because he mentions “project arc” in this article: http://www.coldbird.uk.to/?e=8

      There is quite a possibility about this, coldbird handed over command of the PRO team to Virtuous Flame (who was a good friend of his) so I really agree with you.

      The only thing that I am wondering now is, because Frosty is also part of the PRO team and I have heard that PRO and TN are enemies so I would assume that the kexploit is going to be released with ARK instead of TN and maybe that is why there is a delay, so that the kxploit could be ported to ARK and properly tested.

      But then most of this stuff is baseless

    Otherwise, however, I would be glad to see a release of ark on frostegater’s kernel exploit

    You never know.

    Coldbird might be helping out behind the scenes, all secret like. I know if I had labored away on a piece of software like he did I wouldn’t want to see it go to waste.

    Also gotta give mad props to the developers for their awesome work so far, as well as to Wololo for keeping this great website going despite all the constant drama.

    Keep up the great work guys!!!

    i see no one get to see the exploits yet..well x’mas almost over & devs, dont use ninja claus term anymore if u dont want to release it on x’mas..so us will not waste our time to wait for it on x’mas. Dont gove any false hope like saying ninja claus if u dont plan to release it coz it’s very annoying to us..

    1. james’s avatar

      i 2nd to that. just saying that no exploit released in x’mas & will release at the end of the month or maybe not..is it really difficult to do that?. I wonder if frost & others like to see us like a stupid waging our tail with something that might even be released..FUCK U ALL..

        2 things:
        - first if you were not replying to yourself you would have a bit of credibility
        - second, if you can’t be patient, find your own exploits and feel free to distribute them or not. It’s not rocket science, and this is largely documented.

    guys the z said the exploit will be released 5 to 6 days from now..so dont waste ur time waiting anymore. It’s not ninja claus anymore so in summary it is at the end of this month, maybe the last day in December which is really stupid & annoying.

    I hope the rude people posting comments on this site don’t ruin my chances of getting this exploit considering that i actually donated money in support.

    You can either be patient and wait or try to find your own exploit and learn patience that way because im sure its not a quick process.
