Since kernel mode exploits are rare and scarce, it should be obvious that there won’t be a working TN-V eCFW release for said new firmwares anytime soon.

This brings us back to our old Half Byte Loader, which is indeed still working at firmware 3.10 & 3.12, as long as you own the right game from the right PSN store.

We’ve mentioned some progress on PS3 emulation a few weeks ago, and it was pointed out to me that we forgot to mention one of the most promising PS3 emulators out there: RPCS3.
