Regarding Koala's latest "hack"

Post by haxxey » Wed May 07, 2014 1:28 pm

Does it even need to be a kiosk Vita? Can't you just, start downloading something free off of PSN but use charles proxy, so you could replace the PKG link it downloads from with Netflix's PKG link?

I have no idea what I'm talking about though so please tell me why this isn't possible.

Do you mean, commanding vita to downloading something you already had but having served a different package, i.e. eReader?

I think you may have to send your PSN details to that pathetic "hacker group" in order for koala to do the magic. -- effectively compromising the security of your personal details too.(:

The thread starter is talking about a way to avoid to "send your PSN details to that pathetic "hacker group" in order for koala to do the magic".
It's as if someone said "I think I've found a way to go to C from B rather than from A", and the other guy answers "to go to C you need A".

CPUzX probably just looked at the title, but I still think it's related to what the Op is talking about

There are some checks done, as soon as it starts downloading different pkg it errors out

I agree with you, its a trick not a hack ... He is not a hacker afaik, he just has something that we haven't.

Im pretty sure hes fake or hes already been taken down by big S. His Youtube videos have all gone, not to mention his twitter is also been removed.

Edit: Yeah so i was wrong, not a fake, but also not a hacker, just using tools that arent publicly available. :/
Im a dragon in the scene. I've modded everything i can get my hands on :)

Learning C for the vita :)
