Hey guys, just to make sure I’m getting this on time I’ve been drafting this since Wednesday, just so when I get my PS4 most of it will be done so I’ll be not rushing it because I’ve been playing my PS4 Read the rest of this entry »
It is already the 2nd December 2013 and we are still patiently waiting for the official release of the new TN-V4 eCFW, which will bring us a kernel mode to the firmwares above 2.02 (up to 3.00+) and will turn all usermode exploits, that we’ve released this year, into kernel mode. But now let’s take a look at the changelog of TN-V4:
Our scam of the day is an interesting one, as it is the first fake PS4 hack claim since the console was out. Don’t worry, many more fake hacks will come along the way, trust me on that. But this one’s special, as it’s the first one. Earlier today, rumors started spreading about a potential PS4 Hack. The initial pastebin for the “exploit” from user Reckz0r claimed a PS4 running on the Day 1 update was able to install and run a “jailbreak” update program.
The pastebin pretends to provide download links to a “PS4 Devkit” (whatever that means) and a Jailbreak package. Of course, the files do not actually exist, and no mirror is to be found anywhere. Confirming the growing suspicions of fake at this point is the fact that no mirror of the files seem to be found anywhere, something that would be a first in the history of the internet for a release that big. Well, at least be glad it does not take you to a “survey”.
It is the holiday shopping season in the US, and, although I do not live there, I follow closely some of the video game deals: many of them actually work even if you don’t live in the US.
Let me start with a disclaimer: the links below are affiliate links, it means I get a percentage of the sale if you purchase the item through my links, but you don’t pay anything more than if you went to the site “normally”. Independently of that, my recommendations and excitement for those sales are genuine
First of all, all of the Videgame related deals on Amazon for the days to come can be found on this one page. It is extremely convenient and if you want cheap games or accessories I suggest you get back to that page regularly.
So, what’s exciting there in upcoming deals?
The name Dark_Alex should ring in your ears, when you hear it. He was THE man, that made a lot of PSP CFWs (1.50 POC, 2.71 SE, 3.xx OE, 3.xx/4.01/5.00 M33, etc.), helped with the Pandora battery service mode, and released a lot of software for said pandora method. Dark~AleX should be known by most informed PSP scene people, and the fact that he updates his website for the PS4, might be an indication that he could return.
Where the hell is TN-V4, and why hasn’t it been released yet? Well, if I got a dollar every time I got that question… you know the rest.
The truth is, TotalNoob has been extremely secretive about this project and his release plans, probably for good reasons. As a result though, for the moment I cannot give a precise date as to when he plans to release his upcoming Homebrew Enabler (his most precise answer so far has been “somewhere between November and January”).
As of late the PlayStation brand has had its, in my opinion, fair share of public support. If next –gen sales numbers are correct, gamers worldwide have (re-) embraced PlayStation and I hope this trend continues when in a few day time the PS4 officially lands in Europe.
A large aspect of the new found love gamers show for PlayStation stems from the gaming company’s ability to learn from past mistakes. Hmm, no, let me rephrase that; Sony has done an excellent job at communicating a message which resonated with gamers and arguably the gaming industry as a whole. Time will tell if they can truly deliver on their message. Read the rest of this entry »
It is no news that the first steps in hacking a device often include hardware reverse engineering. For those who don’t know Chipworks, it’s a company that specializes in reverse engineering semiconductors and electronic systems. Once in a while, mostly as a publicity stunt, they publish their work for popular electronics. Today, the PS4 gets the Chipworks treatment.
So guys this week we’ve got: me asking for your PSN id’s, a supposed Game Of Thrones…. Game, and a FABULOUS game known as ‘ultimate gay fighter’. No, really! Read the rest of this entry »
For fans of the Atlus hit series Persona, the midnight hour struck hard last night. Atlus had been teasing Persona announcements for over a week to drum up interest for their announcement. And it seems like the Publisher behind the Persona series had something up their sleeve for all, so Persona fans can get their fix on a large variety of game systems. Is your favourite among them?

A lot of you guys might know Mathieulh from his days in the PSP and PS3 scene, he is a good developer and got a version of TN-V4 from TN himself, which he could try on his PS VitaTV. But does everything work like at a 2.02 Vita? Well, lets see…
Here is a topic I often talk to other gamers about, though most couldn’t care less until they’re system doesn’t work anymore.
Passed off with ether an “I’ll do it later” or a “I don’t want to break it”, nether of which will ever happen, never to be thought of again until the system is dead and all those games, saves, and spent data bandwidth are now as worthless as a paperweight.
Well protecting your gaming system starts the moment you get the shiny new thing out the store glass case.
Protection measures differ from home console and handhelds with their requirements and ability to protect the console.
I’m hoping to make a guide for both home consoles and a few handheld consoles (they differ so much.)
It seems that some of the European Playstation Network accounts have been re-set, so if you can’t log in, don’t worry!

If you have read my Vita TV review (and if you haven’t, do it now!), you know I have been hugely disappointed by the device so far, mostly because of the poor level of its game compatibility and services offer.
Mathieulh, of ps3 and psp hacking fame (remember pandora batteries?), happens to both be a beta tester of TotalNoob’s upcoming TN-v4, and to own one of the Japan-only Vita TVs. He was successfully able to run TN-V on his vita TV, now making the device much more interesting to my eyes.
TN-V is a homebrew enabler running in the PSP emulator of the Vita (and now Vita TV). It lets users, among other things, run emulators for the major “old school” consoles, such as the GBA, SNES, Neogeo, megadrive, NES, Nintendo 64 etc…
It has been about 2 months now since PPSSPP had their last release and November 1st marked the one year anniversary of PPSSPP. ”While nothing is perfect, there have been plenty of improvements since the last release, and thanks to all of the contributors!” Here are a few thing that have been fixed with the release of 0.9.5
