No PSN services

Just a few hours after Sony released their firmware 3.10, people figured out how to prevent the firmware update and access the PSN services from their PS Vitas running firmware 3.01.

Last week we started the most Epic giveaway ever done on the scene: a huge Easter Egg Hunt with a total of $1000 in PSN Codes to be found on our website. Up to $100 could be found so far in various pages of our site, and I revealed all the locations of the 10 Eggs in this article.

In the hours to come, I will be hiding an additional $150 in 15 eggs, pushing our total to $250. To be clear, this means there will be 25 eggs on the site, 10 of which have been claimed by now, and 15 new ones. Similar to last week, the Eggs can be found in the following places:

Hack 'N Slash

I frequently come across comments that indicate a large portion of this site’s visitors would like to be able to “hack it.” Wololo.net even has some nice tutorials that can help those who are looking to find an user/savegame exploit. But with all the different coding languages out there, each with their own advantages and field use, I can see how for the vast majority of gamers “learning how to hack a game” remains wish. Enter Hack ‘N Slash – in development at the esteemed game studio Double Fine -, the core gameplay of this title will allow you to hack and play around with its source code.

Hey people! As you probably know by now, we’re having an Easter Egg Hunt here at wololo.net, and will be giving away a total of $1000 in PSN codes, concluding the Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday (4/20) with a bang. We’ve hidden $100 worth of “Easter Eggs” so far. Did you find them? Here’s where they could be found:

April fools is over, we all had our laughs, but it’s time to move on.
On this subject I want to discuss what hidden “features” and “stability improvements” the new Vita firmwares 3.10/3.12 brought to the table and my overall rant about them from both a hacker’s perspective and a user’s perspective.

A few days ago, Sony released the firmwares 3.10 and 3.12 which both fixed the vulnerabilities in the previous firmware, that allowed the execution of the TN-V eCFW via various exploit game titles.

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.

This is an apology letter for the people at /talk regarding the reason for my banning. Please read the whole article before jumping to conclusions.

(Update: yeah, as many of you guessed, that was our obligatory April Fool’s of the year. The site being down for 8 hours on the other hand… that wasn’t part of the plan) I am getting the question a lot these days: Acid_Snake has been banned from our forum and people want to understand why.

Hey, I couldn’t find much this week, and sorry about missing last week, I got caught up with Infamous, Lightning Returns and FF X|X-2 HD, but I’ll tell you a bit about my FFX HD endeavour.

The title is self-explanatory, this is a how-to and review of VitaUpdateBlocker. VitaUpdateBlocker is a new app, giving you the powers of the proxy trick, with much less of the tedious file editing. Read the rest of this entry »

Hey people, April is coming soon, and it is bringing the Easter Bunny with it. I have been thinking for a while of a nice contest to have with a cool prize in it. Homebrew contests are great (I did organize a huge homebrew contest back in 2011 with insane cash prizes) but difficult and long to organize. They also are restricted to developers.

With Easter coming soon, I had the opportunity to start a fun and simple contest that everyone can take part in: We’re going to hide easter “eggs” on the website. The Eggs will not be made of chocolate (mostly because sending chocolate through the intertubes could damage our server and reduce your internet speed), but they will contain PSN Codes.

And because I didn’t want this contest to be only fun, but also epic, we are giving away not $50, not $100, but $1000 in PSN Codes!

A while back I made a series of articles dubbed 7 Days of Metal Gear. The series was so popular that I decided to make two more: 10 Days of Hacking and 8 Days of Gaming. 10 Days of Hacking is special, as it was open ended as there are some pretty cool hacks I want to talk about, but I can’t do it as they are undisclosed or they have not fully developed yet. With this said, let me introduce you to this new series of articles that will be running for the whole month of March.
