Official ARK-2 testing thread (up to firmware 3.18).

Post by Acid_Snake » Mon Jun 02, 2014 12:42 am

This is the official thread for betatesting ARK-2, an updated and reworked version of ARK eCFW for the Vita.
THIS IS NOT A NEW KERNEL EXPLOIT, although we might release a new one if we get too happy with the results.

To install ARK:
Download the bellow archive and extract its contents into the savedata of your game. Copy the savedata and trigger the exploit.
That's it! no need to recompile anything, ARK should work right out of the box with most exploits, although it may fail with some as we're still in a very early experimental stage.

When providing test results please include the following:
- what firmware version you're on
- what game you're using
- what menu you're using
- where it crashed (what homebrew, iso, etc)
- any other useful information

Download:
ARK 2 testing version 11

Changelog (version 10)
- support for up to firmware 3.18
- comes with arkMenu

Credits:
- original developers: coldbird, hrimfaxi, neur0n and wth
- maintainers: Acid_Snake and qwikrazor87 (when he used to be a cool guy)
- ARKMenu:
----- Acid_Snake: most of the menu
----- DS_Marine: fire and tetris effects
----- GUIDOBOT: some code and assests borrowed from 138Menu
----- Coldbird: FTP app (itself gotten from pspftpd)
----- xerpi: graphics library
----- hrydgard (from PPSSPP): borrowed code for PMF and AT3
----- qwikrazor87 (when he wasn't an *****): fast ISO and CSO code in pyMenu (I ported it over to C++) and DATA.PKG code
----- GodmanGen: main theme
----- Sorry if I have forgotten someone.
- special thanks to SMOKE, josh_axey, orion90, gdljjrod, codestation and probably others.
- BUY ME A BEER!

Hey Acid, I know this is for the Vita, but since it runs as a PSP emu, is it possible to run it on a PSP?

there's some Vita specific code, so it won't work on a PSP

ARK is pretty much PRO CFW for the Vita.
ARK won't work on the PSP unless you update it with patches specifically for your PSP model, and you'll need more patches for the PSP, (VSH patches, etc.), so it's not worth the hassle.

Yeah I knew that, and that's why I was hoping to get it ported to PSP.

With exploits "Arcade Darts" and "Jewel Keepers", both on ofw 2.60, does not work

With Artcade Darts, when I start the exploit gets stuck on the "Starting" and after the crash PSPemu

With Jewel Keepers, when I start the exploit exits the screen that says "Starting, Scan Failed"

But I wonder why, since with older versions ARK was started on Arcade Darts.
