      “Now, I am aware that one does not simply find the next PS4 kernel exploit. I am also aware that most of the ones who do are computer science graduates”

      There are two types of programmers (well, there are two types of people: those who divide into two types and those who don’t…): natural and educated. Natural programmers learn by themselves without formal education. Most people that serve into security are naturals.

        I guess we’ll find out what category I fall in in the next post (spoiler: I don’t think I’m a natural)

      Thanks a lot, I’m very thrilled to be writing this on Wololo!
      The plan is to get one post a week for this series, so the next one should come out on the 25th. Stay tuned!

    Been wanting to learn this stuff for years myself. Will be interested to keep up with your Blog.

    It would be really cool if the first entry included all software, links and setup instructions to ensure anyone wanting to join you on the journey is on a replica platform.

      Thanks a lot, I’m glad to see that some people are interested in this!
      I’ll indeed link to everything I use in this series (that isn’t illegal to share) in order for everyone to be able to follow along.

      I’m very happy to see that I caught your interest, and don’t worry, I’m planning on running this series for as long as possible!

    You know, I’ve studied compute science and O can tell you that you learn almost nothing about hacking there. I Just encorage you to learn on your own, and also will love to read those easy accéss hacking files =).
    Back in The time (when I was at high school) I tried tô start with ps1 hacking and it was really funny tô learn the conceptos behind it, unafortunatelly I didnt have all the tools by then…

    • TheOct0 says:

      I was mainly trying to cover my grounds about why I probably wouldn’t be the best student on the matter, but your comment has given me some more faith in what I’ll be able to learn. I hope you’ll get into hacking as well as I continue this series!
