A while back the scene had seen the return of well known PSP hacker Davee when he released a tool called RopTool that could aid in ARM CPU hacking. The developer has now released a native exploit through Webkit that in its initial release only ran on firmware 2.60. The developer has now promptly updated the exploit to run on all firmwares [break].[/break]up to 3.18. So if you updated to firmware 3.30 you are out of luck. The developer via his blog also gives credit where credit is due and mentions that the driving force behind this exploit comes from developers BBalling1, Josh_Axey and Archaemic.


You can test the vulnerability on your Vita by visiting the link provided below and when executed correctly you should be met with a message that reads "Congrats, this vita is vulnerable". On some firmware versions it is reported that anything but error codes such as error: 1, error: 2, error: 3 is a good sign that the exploit is working. For example when the browser page hangs for a few seconds then refreshes. Developer BBalling1, aka Codelion, has also released his version of the exploit for firmware 3.18 which requires netcat. More about that can be found on his github page which is also quoted below.

Following the recent release of developer flatz source code from various of his work & tools. The useful EID Root Key Dumper of the developer has now been updated to support additional firmware. Now the utility that was once was restricted to only 3.55 & 4.50 cfw, Now has 4.21, 4.46, 4.53 & 4.65 CFW support thanks to developer zecoxao making use of the recent source coderelease. See additional details below:

Update: Haxxxen has provided a fixed version of 4.21, after a minor error was discovered.


Universal Media Server, the DLNA compliant UPnP media server, reaches version 4.2.0 today which adds further support for 3D rendering. These include 2D to 3D subtitle conversion as well as 3D video conversion. The update also addresses a few bugs for Windows and OS X users by updating FFmpeg. Devices such as [break].[/break]the Xbox One console, Panasonic and Philips TV's also get improved support.


A while back it was announced that the upcoming PlayStation 4 2.00 update would add theme support for the console. Many have been waiting for the update and its release date. Reading over at the PlayStation blog, SCEA's Scott McCarthy has once again revealed[break].[/break] further features that you can look forward to.


Developer Littlebalup released an update to PS3DumpChecker. In build 468 of the Windows application the dev introduces many fixes which can be viewed below.

Good news for those who did update their PS Vita to firmware version 3.30 comes as developer The Z showcases a proof of concept video via YouTube. The developer does caution against updating your PS Vita passed 3.18 and 3.20 due to them been able to run ARK or TN-V and even the PSOne Loader. So this only goes out to those already running firmware[break].[/break] 3.30, which is said to only run VHBL. The Z also mentions via Twitter that they are trying to use one of the older game exploits that was released a while back when 50+ exploitable games was released by developer Acid_Snake. So if you happen to own the game one would not need to purchase a new one and this also prevents the developers from wasting a new and unannounced exploitable game that can be used in future PS Vita firmware updates. The game in question is yet to be announced.

Developer Samson released a PS1 Homebrew Game packaged for the PS3. Zblast (v1.3) a game originally developed by Russell Marks. Samson packaged this PS1 homebrew game using Aldostool's RetroXMB Package Creator Tool (the PS1 Portion of that app). If you like Retro Shooters this is a very fun game and I highly suggest user's give this a try. [break].[/break]


Developer 3141card has released a new and improved PS3 LuaPlayer with update v5.2.3, this version was used in Swing Copters (v1.0 Final) by Sandroron. In this update 3141card added sound support with using Estwald's (aka Hermes) spu sound library and also his tiny3d library for 2D/3D graphics. This is no doubt a huge improvement for the LuaPlayer. Already it was put to great use. Hopefully we see some additional creations from this work by the developer. [break].[/break]
