    Wait, so does this mean he found an additional kernel exploit along side what Team Molecule had already found?

    everyone is really focused on the vita, I bet PS4 hackers are using this distraction to quietly make something, especially when henkaku uses the same exploit for the 3.55 PS4

    at the end of the the 1st paragraph of the blog “All Vita devices and firmwares before 3.61 are affected.” .. Does this mean that it is possible to have this in lower firmwares? Henkaku for lower firmwares anybody?

      There’s no reason it shouldn’t work, unless the exploit is written on code that came after a certain firmware. From the sound of the articles linked and explanation given, it sounds like they used the lower firmwares to run the hack and tested it on the latest available firmware at the time. Since Sony didn’t patch the exploit used until 3.61, I would bet that it works on any firmware that is 3.60 or less; but the lower firmwares are still reliant on the code they have available and some newer homebrews will fail to run or crash do to the lack of code necessary to run them.
