After nearly 4 months of playing cat and mouse, Sony finally brought the exploit titles, used to trigger the TN-V eCFW at firmware 3.01, back.

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.

While we are still waiting for a new PS Vita firmware, the PS4 is getting firmware updates more regularly.

Despite the fact that it just got a new firmware, Sony has announced yet another, yet bigger, firmware for the Playstation 4, which adds some new cool features to it, which implies that the next firmware update will be something bigger than just a potentional 1.63.

A few days ago we’ve told you about the latest exploit game for running the TN-V eCFW at your PS Vita: Fifa (Soccer) 2011 and 2012.
Even though it was planned to release the game at a weekend, like we usually do, we (well, the developer of it) had to rush it, because some, let’s call him jerk, jerk had to leak the name of the game and therefore pretty much f#cked up the release for everybody who was patiently waiting.

PS4 Update

A new feature of this new Firmware is the support for various Headsets, e.g. the Gold Wireless Headset by Sony Computer Entertainment (And no, I am not getting paid for advertising this Sony product… Or am I?).

The ninja release is over and a lot of people bought the game 101-in-1 Megamix, which will be necessary for using the TN-V4 eCFW (and kernel exploit) at the PS Vita Firmware 3.01, but there seems to be a problem with the game itself, when you are using a non-japanese PSN account with an asian PS Vita. But what is this problem and where does it come from?

TN-V4 at a PS Vita Slim

… this little devil of a Firmware patched again some (at least 2) usermode exploits. This time two games were patched, one that wasn’t used at all, it just functioned as a hello world, and one game, that might got leaked some weeks ago. But what about our kernel mode relase and TN-V4? Well …
