      Yup, this is due to how simple the spam parser is and the fact that your username contains something it thinks is offensive

    if this is an exploit kernel means that the bubbles will be back for PSP / PSX games? would be great

    It really is exciting times for the Vita scene at the moment. Really reminds me of the early days of the PSP. (Perhaps I should say day one of the PSP)

    when you mean kernel exploit, what do you mean? kernel exploit for vita side? or for the psp side? and what can we achieve with that? better emulation, ps1/psp(homebrew)/custom bubbles on live area?

    everyone wanting a vita cfw.. have you ever thought that henkaku could be just that? it allows unsigned code to install, its a kernel exploit, ability to run backups, and even has psn spoofing now.

    Will this help the research on ps4 kernel exploit?

    “… PS Vita’s security, which Yifan claims is one of the strongest he’s seen on a consumer device.”

    It obviously has to be. It’s a consumer device that wasn’t jailbroken within the first two weeks. Not even the first few years. And even when it was, the first real jailbreaks were a pain in the ***.

    Gotta love the people who spend all day and night hammering F5, only to be able to comment “First” as soon as a new post comes up…
    That’s internet and people with no lives for you xD
