    Requirements: Minecraft Patch Kernel Hooks Payload CUSA00265 decrypted eboot named as eboot_dec.bin CUSA00265 filesystem (minus sce_modules) The Playroom encrypted sce_modules Playground that supports Code Exec and Elf Loader / Extreme-modding.de playground / etc Filezilla Client (Transfer mode MUST be binary) NetCat Socat Tutorial: 1- Create Folder in data folder named app2 (with ftp payload, binary mode always, NOT ascii) 2- Put in Folder original sce_modules from playroom (encrypted, not modified) 3- Put eboot_plugin in folder 4- Put eboot_dec.bin (from game we want to use, in this case, Minecraft Trial CUSA00265) 5- Put game files and folders (from game we want to use) 6- Reboot to clean memory from previous ftp payload patches 7- Execute kernel_hook payload (socat -u FILE:kernel_hooks TCP:my.ps4.ip:5054). Note that this is hitodama 8- Run listener to grab logs (nc my.ps4.ip 5088). You should see some logs on it 9- Minimize browser with PS Button 10- Run Playroom. Instead of the usual app, Minecraft Trial version should show up. Notes: This is only a POC, so treat it as such Most games SHOULD work with this method, but each and everyone of them will require a "patch" (i call it like that because it's the file that allows the eboot to run) Additionally, games that require modules besides libc and/or libSceFios2 will most likely not work, at least for now. Homebrew DOES work with this method, but as you can see from the SDKs available (the open source ones) there is no Graphics API whatsoever. This method however supports hitodama compiled ELFs. As for credits/source code, we're still discussing the best way to release this without any lawsuit from Sony (not that they're very interested in 1.76 but whatever...) The next game that we're working on is P.T. Some people are also working on homebrew. Hopefully that'll happen soon, but until then, STOP ASKING! In the meantime, maybe there'll be a source release on how to do the eboot_plugin "patches". Just be patient Video:

    Seriously this bullshit has gone on long enough and enough is enough, i am at a point where i can no longer keep this confined to the PlayStationHaX Twitter account. You all know i have a problem with @Hackinformer, i think he is a dishonest sleazy piece of shit, who is ONLY in the PS Vita scene to make as much money as he can, he is in it for no other reason than that and he has proven this time and time again, from the rubbish Bubbles Scam, to forcing members to disable their AdBlock in order to view the forum, the only type of people who do shit like that are money greedy scum. Now don't get me wrong, people need money in order to run a forum which is why i have ad's here and on the front page, but if you want to use AdBlock i am cool with that, i even occasionally do Amazon and Play-Asia affilaite links, i am a small website with a small amount of visitors, i do not get a huge lot from Ad's and i get basically nothing from affiliates, i also get some donations, but the levels that Hackinformer goes to to earn money is the type of thing a shady business gets up to, the fact is Hackinformer does not need much money to run his website, he pays TurkReno for quite a shit server and pays for a domain, that is it, nothing else, the front page software is free, the forum software is free, so all the money he gets from ad's, affiliation and scamming scene members goes on him buying himself loads of toys and other things to make himself feel good, that is all cool, but you guys shouldn't have to pay for him to live a life of luxury, when he does absolutely nothing in order to earn that money. Now back to the main story, the drama over SD2Vita adaptors and Hackinformers SD2Vita Plus adaptors, i was aware that they were doing something like this, but i had been busy and didn't bother saying anything until i seen Hackinformer post this tweet, using the HENkaku and Enso: So of course i had to make my own tweet: The link in the image goes to this listing, which is a link a random adaptor from a random person i grabbed to make a point, i got on with my night and went to bed, when i woke in the morning and seen this tweet: So i replied with this: This is crap that was posted by Hackinformer on his website: The rest of the article is a form to fill out and buy their adaptor, now lets critique the article: 1.) They claim that they want to give you the best they can afford, if that is the case, why did they then sell the older adaptors which they claim are dangerous for your PS Vita? 2.) When they created the adaptor, they did it so that their pockets were lined, they don't care for your Vita, they care about the $$$. 1.) If these adaptors are not up to it, then why were they selling them? 2.) Bit in red = Sales pitch, the type of shit a business does. Here goes the sales pitch, "the competition isn't as good as ours" the type of shit a business does. 1.) Seriously this has to be the dumbest part of the lame argument that i read, they are placed beside a Nintendo Switch, so what, why should that matter, you place small things beside other well known things to show size reference, it is to shop people what size the adaptor is. 2.) Bit in red = Sales pitch, the type of shit a business does. 3.) The adaptor from the competition is sitting beside a Nintendo Switch so you must buy a SD2Vita Plus because of this, how the fuck does that even compute in his tiny fucking mind. Where is the proof of these claims? Where is the proof that your fingers will corrode the board? These are the same type of bogus , scaremongering claims a shady business will do in order for you to buy their product and not the competitions, even though there is no proof that there is anything wrong with the competitions adaptors, its all assumption and Xenophobia due to them being Chinese devices You will notice a running theme with Hackinformer and his crew, where all you will see is "It's Chinese so it's bad". 1.) Again where is the proof that these adaptors will only last 100-200 injects/ejects?, where have the Hackinformer people done the tests on these adaptors? 2.) Bit in red = Sales pitch, the type of shit a business does. If you look at the link, you will see the article on reddit was created not long before the one on Hackinformer, coincidence? But Hackinformers design had exposed boards and SD card slot connections, but they are still better than the competition ? Why did they sell them knowing that they were dangerous? The answer they couldn't make enough profit from their first adaptors so had to make a new adaptor and then create articles scaremongering in order to get uneducated people to buy them, they abused their place in the scene by convincing you guys that only their new adaptor is the best and most safe, this is all bogus of course. Don't worry guys, i am not yet finished, we will go to a twitter conversation that took place in the past 24 hours: Silly Hackinformer replied with something like "But it's got zero sale", well that's is because it is a preorder dumb dumb, perhaps your stupidity is why you deleted your tweet, then we had this: Of course the con artist TurkReno had to pipe in: Now you will see from those tweets that TurkReno is changing the 100 -200 inject/ejects to 10-20 inject/ejects, so basically he is making all these devices to be worse than they originally claimed. Also you will notice the back pedalling, first they said that all the OG ones were bad, even their own, now they are saying 'only some', this article should be all you need to know about the scam train that is Hackinformer and his cronies. My advice is to get a refund from them, wait until a cheaper and better clone comes out, one that will be the same as Hackinformers SD2Vita Plus, but cheaper. TL;DR Hackinformer and his gang are dishonest scam artists, lying to you and trying to convince you to buy something you DON'T need. Oh and here is a little video thanks to @centrino

    Ok, Im going to be constructive here.. Or at least try to... As far as Ive seen, none of those have even claimed to be in a plastic case at all? I might've missed some odd one though. Its true though that having a plastic case is generally better when dealing with PCB's youre going to fiddle with, because it does offer some protection from outside moisture and the like. I dont think I need to comment on this... But I'll do anyway - ITS A FKING ADAPTER! It can sit on top of the Eiffel tower and it still wouldnt change a thing. Ok this one had me laughing out loud.... A) I highly doubt that, however I have no way of counter-proving this claim but... Doubt it.... B.) Wait what? Lets read that again.... "the oil from your fingers will corrode the board".... "the oil".... "oil".... *ahem*.... No, thats not going to happen. First of all, oil does not corrode metals - if anything it protects it from corrosion. However, MOISTURE causes corrosion, and yes - our bodies, including our fingers, carries a fair bit of moisture with them. But, and this is important, its NOWHERE NEAR enough to cause metal to corrode, not even the cheapest conductive metal in the world. The only scenario I can see "fingers" causing corrosion to "cheap" metals would be if you squeezed it in your hand very hard for a fairly long time with a lot of handsweat involved. But why the fk would you do that? I'll come back to this topic at the end. No shit? You dont say? Yeah cause thats totally not the entire point of them or anything.... Also, everything is created in bulk except for very early prototypes(or very very specific premium ultra-rare "handmade" things) and then shipped off to the ones ordering the manufacturing for the finishing touches(such as casing, branding etc etc), before being sold off to consumers at a fuckton higher price than it cost to make it(there are exceptions, but generally speaking). What we have here is a product directly from the assembly band without any meddling middle hands. Also I'd just like to point out again - ITS A FKING ADAPTER! Its not rocket science.... This is another claim I find very hard to believe, but again I have no solid way of proving them wrong(or time, for that matter). I have built some very questionable adapters and slot-in cards, they are crude, dirty, and utter crap no matter how much you polish them.... BUT! They work just fine, and while I dont keep count(cause why would I?) I'm pretty sure some of them have seen a lot more "ejecting" than the 100-200 claimed above. How were these boards made you ask? Solder. Yup, plain old solder aligned, heated and shaped to match the connectors(told you they were crude :P). Thats right, theyre made out of a material made for "glueing" things to a PCB, which is most likely about 100x weaker than the "tin immersion plating" mentioned above. Are there any scratches on them? There are, on some, because the shape is/wasnt the 100% correct thickness for the socket. But, they work. Would I recommend such a crude method? Definitely not. Would/will I use that method again? Most likely. Am I worried they will break? Nope, not really. Ok, lets continue with the oily-fingers-bs. I dont think anyone would disagree that handling bare PCB's with your hands aren't the best thing you can do to the PCB. However, ITS A FKING ADAPTER!(Have I said that enough yet?). In fact - it doesnt even have a single component on it! All it does is reroute the gamecard pins to a SD-standard pinlayout. Its been known for ages that the gamecards are basically just re-routed SD cards(with some additions such as HW DRM etc etc). The only reason we havent had any adapters before(actually we have but... yeah...) is because theres been no way to enabling the functionality in the firmware/software - until now. The odds of a PCB breaking - one without ANY components - simply by handling it with your hands, is astronomically small ASSUMING youre not doing it while washing your hands, or showering, or having live current applied to you - a current high enough to burn the traces of the PCB(btw, you'd be long dead before that would happen, dont try it). Now I cant fathom anyone stupid enough to use their vita in the shower, bath or similar. And even if there would be such a person, some corrosion on a <$3 PCB would be the least of their worries. You have undoubtedly noticed I've kept talking about water and moisture, thats because moisture is the biggest cause of corrosion when dealing with metals. But, there is one more thing to factor in - contamination. Humans carries a fair bit of this on a daily basis(and, ironically, is usually mixed with the "oil" mentioned), and getting rid of all contamination is almost impossible(theres a reason surgeons use pure alcohol to wash their hands and not touching anything until they got gloves on). However, contamination - or impurities, distributed from your fingers to a PCB isnt enough to start a reaction just from contact(assuming youre an average clean-hands-person). But what can and do cause a reaction is heat in combination with these impurities. One prime example here is when soldering. Having fat/oil residue on the PCB where youre going to add liquid metal WILL affect the joint in a bad way, and this can indeed lead to corrosion and other unwanted side-effects. But all of that is completely irrelevant in this case, because youre NOT soldering on this board, youre NOT adding liquid metals to this board, and therefore, the odds of damaging the board simply by handling is, again, astronomically small. If youre still worried though, just clean the board with some alcohol every now and then. TL;DR: What we have here is some basic, insignificant, facts, taken out of context, stretched to oblivion and beyond and painted out like the devil incarnated to make people think this is a serious issue. As a final note I'd just like to point out that ALL commonly used conductive metals can corrode or rust - including this "super" adapter. As a matter of fact, the purer the metal the more sensitive to contamination it is. So in a weird way, a "worse" metal can be more resilient to contamination than "premium" metals such as gold(which, by the way, practically doesnt exist in the world of hobby-electronics.. Theres gold-plattered metals though, which is something completely different). Final words: ITS A FKING ADAPTER!

    I have been working on 8-bit Memoirs for the past 5 years, and now it seems it'll finally be released this December. It is an eBook that'll run on your PS3, PS4 and XB1, because it uses the same technology as Blu-play games: Blu-ray Disc Java. This project will be interesting to anyone who likes to read and has an interest in the old 8-bit consoles and computers from the 80s. If you're that generation yourself, you may find it interesting to recognize scenarios from your own life. And if you're a younger generation, you may find it fun to read about how my generation experienced the beginning of what has now become the modern PC's and gaming-consoles we use today. You use your gamepad to navigate the menu and pages. Usage guide available on the first pages, but it's very straight forward: General: Click left/right to browse pages back and forth in the current text. General: Click up/down to go to previous or next text. PlayStation: Click SQUARE to enter MENU MODE from where you select another text with X. PlayStation: Click SQUARE again in MENU MODE to exit to main menu. PlayStation: While reading a text, click X to show screenshots and illustrations in fullscreen. Xbox One: Click MENU to enter MENU MODE from where you select another text with A. Xbox One: Click MENU again in MENU MODE to exit to main menu. Xbox One: While reading a text, click A to show screenshots and illustrations in fullscreen. 8-bit Memoirs will be available as a free ISO download, so you can burn your own copy. But I will also offer a physical disc release that you can buy if you're too lazy to download and burn yourself - or if you just want to support the project. The book itself contains the equivalent of 250 pages of text, 5 hours of background music, 9 hours of supplemental videos, 100 screenshots and 14 illustrations. Enough entertainment for a while. Early YouTube preview available at http://8bitmemoirs.com/ Will post again when the project is available.

    Offline PS4 Remote Play View File Sony did a great thing by releasing Remote Play for PC's and other devices, however they forced it upon us that we need to be connected online in order to use it, there are numerous occasions where that is not possible, Sony did not take into consideration situations where people would not have the internet or could not use it in their current situation. Thankfully however to developer MysteryDash you can now Remote Play without the need to be connected online, here is a quote from him: Submitter GregoryRasputin Submitted 08/26/2017 Category PC Software(PS4) Developer MysteryDash Source https://github.com/MysteryDash/Offline-PS4-Remote-Play Twitter Donate

    Hi guys. Throwing it back old school with a PS2 Tutorial. Today i will be showing you guys how to install FMCB with ANY ps2 game disc on most slim consoles (not including 9x models - these are untested) Please watch the video below for instructions, otherwise please read below, there will be a written tutorial for more advanced modders who do not need videos. Okay guys so what you will need today ---➣ Phillips screw driver ---➣ Flat head screw driver ---➣ Magnet (not needed but good to hold screws) ---➣ Hobby Knife (not needed but Recommended) ---➣ Memory card ---➣ USB (Formatted to FAT) ---➣ At least 2 burnable DVD discs ---➣ A PS2 game to do the swap with ---➣ Blue Tack or tape of a sort (blue tack recommended) Okay, Firstly you will need to disassemble your ps2. There are 6 screws on the slim console underneath it, the back 2 rubber feet come off, and then just pop off the remaining 4 covers. one of them may be under the warranty seal (cut that crap out... there ain't no more warranty) Once you remove these screws, you must separate the ps2 from the back first at the fatter section (where the power port is), then move to the front where the memory card slot is, and finally move down to the thin end. You will need to tilt the cover up from the fat end in order to separate/gain leverage on the thin end Once you have the lid off, congratulations!!! now we can jam the sensors Please see image below of sensor locations. one is on the power button board and the other is next to the back of the disc drive caddy to the left of it on the main board. You can use either Tape or Bluetack to keep the sensors down, it is recommended you use Bluetack as i found it stuck better and did not come off at all. Now you have set your PS2 up for the swap trick. Congratulations!!!! On to the computer Download my package full of all the files you will need. otherwise you can download these files from sksapps.com ---➣ MY PACKAGE ---➣ Apache1.1 ---➣ Apache3Preview ---➣ COGSWAP ---➣ uLaunchELF_v4.12_CD OR uLaunchELF_v4.12_DVD ---➣ Noobie_Package Download and extract these to a folder where you would like to save them Now Grab a disc you do not care if you damage as we will be using this for the swap Take note of the disc. It is recommended that you use a DVD as the swap disc. this can be seen on the front. it will say "DVD" or "Compact Disc" Insert the game you have chosen into your pc's DVD drive Now open Apache3Preview (DO NOT LET IT UPDATE - it will not function if it does) You will need to click on the drop down menu and select your DVD drive. Once the DVD is loaded up, you will need to click the option to "Create ISO" its the one that looks like a disc with an arrow Wait until ISO is successfully created. Once this is done you will need to open Apache1.1 Press the Browse button in Apache1.1 and select your newly created ISO file You should now be able to see the files inside the ISO Now open windows explorer and go to the DVD drive. Open the directory to view files on disc. It should look the same as Apache1.1 Locate the file that says system.cnf Copy and paste this file anywhere as we only need it for just a moment. If you have a text editor you can open this in your text editor to view contents, otherwise change file type to .txt and open with windows notepad on the first line you should see something like this BOOT2 = cdrom0:\SLES_536.36;1 Now, my one says "SLES_536.36", but your one will most likely be different. take note of the file name. You can now close the explorer window with the Disc open and go back to Apache1.1 Now you should see a file with the same name as the one from the text document. (This is the file we are going to modify) You must now extract your version of Cogswap and rename it to the name of the file on your disc. (for example, i would name my cogswap as "SLES_536.36") Now you must Right Click on the cogswap file we just renamed and press "PROPERTIES" to view file information. You should now be able to view the size of the file in Bytes (Perfect!!) Take note of the size, keep the window open Go back to Apache1.1 and Select the file we are modifying Click on menu option "ISO Tools" and then click "change TOC for selected file" You must modify the size value to the one of cogswap shown in properties. it is show as a byte value. DO NOT MODIFY LBA [make big an bold and red] Click update! Now select the file we are replacing again and go to the same menu like so -- ISO Tools --> Updaate selected file Now browse for the cogswap file we renamed to the one on the disc, select it and open it. This should now be updated in the ISO (Yayyy!!!) Close Apache1.1 as it auto saves to the ISO Now chose a method of your own to burn this ISO to a DVD, i just used the burn option in Apache3Preview. MAKE SURE YOU SELECT SLOWEST BURN SPEED (YOU CAN NOT USE REWRITABLE MEDIA - DVD RW) Press Burn and wait... Congratulations!!! You now have your swap disc We must now create the uLaunchELF_v4.12 disc Decide weather you are using a CD or a DVD to launch uLaunchELF_v4.12 Open the RAR file and either Burn the DVD .ISO to a DVD, or burn the CD .bin file to a CD with a burning tool of choice Now we have uLaunchELF_v4.12 Disc!!!! Last Step for the computer Insert a USB of choice (no need for anything larger than 500mb) You must format this USB to FAT. This can be achieved by right clicking on the USB in explorer and selecting format --> FAT --> Quick --> start (BE WARNED THIS WILL WIPE ALL FILES OFF USB) Now open Noobie_Package and copy "INSTALL" folder and "FREE_MCBOOT.ELF" to your usb That is all for the computer now guys. On to the tricky part Booting Cogswap Start off by inserting the genuine PS2 Disc into drive Please Read this a few times before attempting Congratulations, that was the hardest part!!! Now that you have cogswap open, if you selected burning Ulaunch to a DVD you can remove the Genuine game disc and insert the ulaunch disc If you did not, please open this spoiler Now insert your USB with noobie package on it Now you can press [X] to boot the Ulaunch disc Once loaded press [O] and navigate to "Mass" directory and hit [O] Now you should see "FREE_MCBOOT.ELF" Navigate to this and hit [O] to launch Tadaaaaa, you now have the FreeMC Boot installer open. Make sure you have a memory card inserted Select what you would like to use for your boot method. (Normal or Multi) I selected Multi so i can use the card on other systems Wait until it is finished. This may take a few minutes One it is complete, navigate to "Launch FMCB" and Voula, you should be booted into FMCB Attempt to reboot your console to double check it worked, make sure to remove all discs, you should be greeted with FMCB menu Congratulations you have now successfully installed FMCB without having to pay a cent for any games or swap discs like 007. You can now remove any bluetack, sensor jamers you used and reverse disassembly to reassemble. Let me know if you have any questions! Peace out guys!

    Having a reasonable amount of ads and/or aff. links are fine* imo. Running a website isnt free, and requires quite a bit of work and maintenance. The bigger the site, the more maintenance will be needed, e.g. more time lost that couldve been spent elsewhere. For example resting to be fit for fight at ones real work tomorrow to earn a living. * theres a very fine line between whats reasonable and whats annoying for the users. Having a couple of discreet non-intrusive ads, on a layout designed to accommodate said ads, isnt something many people will bat an eye at. However, plastering ads at every inch of empty space on the site, or having an ad in the middle of a forum thread, is beyond annoying. Affiliation links in product posts or similar is also not something many users complain about, as long as the link is transparent and not obscured, because then the user can chose for himself whether to use that link or not. However, one cannot deny that plastering ads and aff. links all over a page does give more money than a more user-friendly option...

    Developer TheFloW announced NoNpDrm a plugin for Vita's with HENkaku via his Twitter account. According to the developer you could call this plugin Vitamin 3.0, however it's not actually a game dumper. How does it work? After installing the plugin you simply copy and paste a game from gro0:app/ux0:app. You should then be able to install and launch them on any device and account (if HENkaku is installed). This is possible because the plugin creates and uses a fake license. How the license is generated is not yet known. What's the difference with Mai/Vitamin dumps? Unlike those dumpers this plugin assures you that the game remains untouched, which should be safer. All games that require firmware 3.60 or lower will be compatible. There's also good news for people without an activated Vita. If you are one of them and still have official games installed but aren't able to run them the plugin will generate a fake license so you'll be able to play them once more. A release is expected this month. Source: PasteBin Twitter: TheFlow

    I really love these SD2Vita adptors from @Hackinformer. They are such a thing of beauty, such as the ones he sent a Reddit member and the ones he sent developer @Rinnegatamante, here are the adaptors he got: Hackinformer sent the Reddit user one and it arrived damaged, one could give him the benefit of a doubt that indeed it was damaged in the post, but what one cannot excuse are the 'spacers', here is the one from the Reddit user followed by one that Rinnegtamante received The opposite side of Rinnegtamante's adaptors: Now of course Hackinformer has an excuse for these: And here are responses to that excuse If you want to compared Hackinformers to a good board check this one without the metal crap: Enough about these damn adaptors, lets talk about something else, such as people deleting the shitty articles they wrote: Did they delete it because people would see them as the ignorant fucks they are, or were they worried that people would see as them as Xenophobic as they clearly hate Chinese stuff, did they do it for damage control?, your guess is as good as mine P.S You can enter this competition, in order to win a 3G2SD adaptor and an SD2Vita adaptor that doesn't have shitty spacers: Win PS Vita 3G To SD Card Adaptor And More

    Wololo does alot of good, but he does have that business mentality and can't exclude MaxConole (garyOPA) in that mix as well, but yes i would agree that Wololo is the best out of the bunch and i do believe he does alot of good, but you can't deny he does some head scratching stuff. Nothing wrong with making money with your site having ads and even having that business approach. It takes alot of time and effort to run and operate a site as you well know and even those mentioned guys know. The problem is when the subject matter is manipulated for those reasons.. Its how tasteful it is but all that comes down to personal opinion which mine is no stronger then others. I think all those sites have some positives, and some have negatives and some more then others,
  18. 2 points
    Well we have our differing opinions on Wololo, he hasn't quite gone to the sleazy lengths the other two have and unlike the other two he has a huge family to support, so i can give him somewhat of a pass on the things he does, i don't like some of them, but they are not detrimental to the scene, if he pulled any of the BS that Hackinformer has, that would change though, as long as people aren't shitting on the scene they are OK with me. I also believe in giving people second chances, which is why i gave PSXHaX a chance, even though i knew he was PS3News, that backfired spectacularly, which is why i would never give Hackinformer a second chance, people who treat the scene as a business do not deserve to be in the scene. Yes i have ad's, they can only be seen on the front page and by new members on the forum, i do not make much from them and i hate using them, but they do help a little bit with server management, however they can never be compared to Hackinformer deceiving the scene, not once but twice.
  19. 2 points
    Kind of a like how i called out Wololo's various questionable money making tactics as well. He blocked me on twitter also. They just do not want to see other sites rightfully calling them out. Looks bad for them.. They can't really defend themselves well as they know they are guilty of some wrong doings. I just see hackinformer / Wololo / psxhax as very similar forums, as they will goto great lengths to make a dime. They all 3 run their sites as profit first and the community is secondary. its funny to think that these guys who came from the community would have more ethics then the outside companies who bought up scene sites. Of all the scene sites out there are there 3 other sites that do more questionable things and tactics then these three sites?

    My favorite homebrew is enso installer. Even if I had to use it only once I think of it as number 1 essential homebrew. Thanks to that I no longer have to trigger henkaku exploit (and tai framework with it) every time I reboot my vita. It made our lives so much easier.

    Tony Montana was the greatest American: I never fucked anybody over in my life didn’t have it coming to them. You got that? All I have in this world is my balls and my word and I don’t break them for no one. Do you understand? That piece of shit up there, I never liked him, I never trusted him. For all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed. But that’s history. I’m here, he’s not. Do you wanna go on with me, you say it. You don’t, then you make a move.

    Awesome, look forward to the release If you want to check the new IRC channel it is at irc.gotbrew.org , it isn't a new server, just a new home for PlayStationHaX IRC, it is run by members from here such as @BobbyBlunt, @pbanj, @moogie and others.

    Amazes me how these guys can break security on devices this "easily". I don't give a shit about vita games as I'm more of a retro gamer myself and just use my vita for retroarch and adrenaline for a couple of ps1 games but this is a great convenience tool for me Mateys

    Best. Excuse. Ever. . . . . . . ... Those are not rivets, those are clearly drilled, tinned and etched solder/testpoints. No one in their right mind would ever think of using.. alright, lets call them rivets... rivets as "spacers", and even less so TINNED, CONDUCTIVE, rivets. If you'd really needed "spacers", you know what you should've done? MADE. THE. BOARD. BIGGER. While I cant comment whether the slots are different sizes between 1k, 2k and PSTV-versions, I can say this: Original carts fits just fine in any of the systems. The locking is not preventing the cards sliding sideways or wiggling back and forth, the lock is only preventing the card from falling out, so that is completely irrelevant. If you'd ever taken the time to actually feel on a gamecart in the slot, you'd noticed it moves around quite a lot with no force whatsoever... And, they work without a single issue. In fact, it HAS to move freely a bit in order to slide out and in without damaging itself(or the reader). The pins are not static in the slot, they are flexible/springloaded to accommodate the movements of the card without losing connection. This is also in place to compensate for the temperature differences that may or may not happen, since metal and PCB's expands and contracts based on the temperature(which we all know all too well with the PS3...). Not much, but enough to cause problem had the pins been static(cracked solderballs anyone?). Ok, the ps3 example isnt strictly relevant, since there wont be nearly as much temperature differences in a card reader as on a processing unit, but the principle is the same. Jesus fuck, this is kindergarten stuff.... But lets do a real-world example: I dont have anything to measure with other than this random SD card+reader I have next to me, but in that the card would be able to move +-0.3mm sideways and almost a whole mm upwards without losing connecting. I dont remember if the vita gamecarts have the same size on the pins as a normal SD-card, but this card is using roughly 1mm wide and 2mm high pins, and the reader's pins(the part that actually touches the sd card) measures roughly 0.2mm wide and 0.3mm high. So yeah, theres a lot of room for the card to flop around in before the connection is interrupted. TL;DR: You WANT the card to be able to move around a little bit. And come to think of it, if you make it too tight so you'd have to force it in, theres a possibility the pins will bend too much and wont regain the original shape when the adapter is taken out, which might cause original carts to stop working, cause the pins wont "reach" the gamecarts anymore(been there, done that with random SD adapters , always fun having to carefully pry the pins back in place, even more so when they snap!).

    Believe it or not, i once considered myself a friend of @Hackinformer's, but after i disagreed with and spoke out against his Bubble Scam, he blocked me on Twitter and stopped speaking to me, he then set his pet dog @turkreno on me, who after failing to fix my server and giving it back to me worse than it was before, decided to post my private IP address on his Twitter account, then blocked me because he seen that his stupid pathetic excuses for the bubble scam were not working on me. Regarding TurkReno, i had decided to use his servers after my own server that i had with BlueHost got hacked, i trusted Turk to help fix my server and he took it and placed it on his servers, but he got afraid because his server was now getting hacked because of dangerous files that were in my websites files, he couldn't find the files that the hackers had left, so decided to give me back my server which i placed back on BlueHost, i then proceeded to get rid of all the hacked files and fix the server myself, i do thank Turk for advising me to get a firewall and for teaching me that people like him were shit and to fix stuff myself, the only thing that i worry about is that he kept a backup of the server and used the database to add members to Hackinformers website. So both cowardly blocked me, because i called them out on using the scene as a business, whilst pretending to be a scene site, recently @Freakler blocked me on Twitter because he accused me of telling lies on his friends, these were the 'lies' i told: These two made him unfollow me: Console Scene Sites Who Enforce Disabling Of AdBlock Are Lame Greedy Scene Site Lets It Flow With Crocodile Tears This one made him block me: When People Cry About Others Making Money Now the ironic thing about Freakler, is that he bitched at me for posting Amazon Links on PlayStationHaX Twitter a couple of years ago during Black Friday, all whilst Hackinformer had his website filled with ad's, he then complains about people making money, whilst that is all his master Hackinformer does and when people point out these truths, Freakler calls them lies. Hackinformer does have some cool staff, the thing is Hackinformer needs to buy his friends and that is basically what he has done with his staff members, he sends them gifts through money he has scammed out of you guys, through ad's and affiliation links, people like me though earn their friends, i have very little friends, but those i have i know they are my friend because of me and not because i bought them off. Anyhow i guess ill stop ranting now.

    I am sure you have read this thread in which i was describing the scaremongering @Hackinformer was doing in regards to SD2Vita adaptors. But perhaps i was wrong, perhaps he was right to scaremonger adaptors, i mean just look at the state of this adaptor that a PS Vita owner received, look t the damage on that board that was no doubt done before being packaged and the seller: That adaptor is completely unusable, so perhaps i was wrong and indeed scaremongering was needed? . . . . . Lets look at the bigger picture . . . . . Oh shit look at that, it is one of Hackinformers original SD2Vita adaptors, here is what the buyer posted on Reddit: And here is the lame excuse of a reply, they typical Hackinformer taking no responsibility for his inferior adaptors: Not taking responsibility for not cleaning the board of the filler rings, those little things could have fell off inside the Vita and cause damage. Disclosure: I DO NOT know Shinji257, i had never spoken to him before and have not been a server he was in before today, today is the first time i met him, or rather seen him speak on a server where i got this information.

    hmm.... Overall it looks like a really crapily made board. I would take one of those dirt-cheap ebay adapters over that abomination any day. Those things on the edges are no doubt breaking points but, generally you dont tin those, or even use metal at them. Generally its just drilled holes. So my next guess is that they doubled as testpoint, which would explain WHY THE FUCK the traces are crossing over them. You should always leave a good 2-3mm empty space from the edge of the board to the closest component/trace/whatever. That has clearly not been done here. Its also clear that the SD-socket has been handsoldered, probably by a demented monkey by the looks of it(same monkey that snapped the edged). Just look at all those pores on the joints on the sides. You could fit half a van in those holes! Sure, you could argue that they serve no purpose other than anchors, but still... If you cant even get those right, god knows how the actual pin-points looks like. Its a bit hard to see on the images due to their small size but, I think I can see hints of melted plastic as well, especially on pin 8... And then theres the entire look of the thing.... That thing is barely passable as a prototype, and definitely not something that should be sold to consumers. I dont know how much those specific boards were sold for, but anything above shipping cost is too much(pro-tip: most of those "chinese dangerous sub-$3 adapters" have free shipping). Im fairly sure I could pull off a better looking board, or at least equally shit, using just a double-sided breadboard, as in, not a custom board with all traces pre-made etc. Hm, I might actually even try it if I get bored enough Hardest part will be getting it thin enough to fit. Well if I do I'll make sure to document it

    I do not normally do this, but @centrino is a trustworthy person so i do not mind making an exception for him, he is selling a PS Vita that he refurbished himself and which is on Enso and has an SD2Vita adaptor, the ability to charge the console the normal way is not possible, but being the hardware genius that centrino is, he has modded his own charge port into the console, from the images he has on his ebay page, the console looks in great condition, here is a quote from that page: It is being sold for £100, you can view the listing here

    VitaShell is a pretty impressive evolution of the old PSPFiller mixed up with MolelularShell, it takes the cake mostly because of TN/The_Flow amazing work throughout the years, always pushing the scene one step at a time (the facility of switching between usb/wifi is priceless). The above mentioned HomebrewBrowser is quite a neat homebrew as well but my mention goes to Adrenaline Bubbles Manager, since I'm a lazy sob I was impressed by how simple and practical the whole renaming/cloning folders was made by that homebrew. Long live the Vita scene and Molelule Team, and hey... it's about time we see some real cracks on the PS4, isn't it? haha By the way, great competition Greg, it's what the site needs to get the usual lurkers out of the shadows. Cheers.

    My favorite homebrew is Vita Homebrew Browser! It makes the work of installing other homebrew a lot easier. My second choice would be VitaShell, of course. And my third favorite is Adrenaline Easy Installer, for the same reasons as VHBB.

    My favorite homebrew is the Taihen framework, I haven't seen anything more useful than that lately, if that can't be counted as a Homebrew (some people would argue it's not, depending on your definition), then my second choice would be Ensō installer, if that's still no good, then Vitashell is my 3rd choice.

    My favorite vita homebrew is Vitashell because for me its the most useful homebrew ever , not only for its functionality within the app but also for the useful and open-source code the fl0w wrote. Many homebrews use parts of Vitashell code to achieve their functions.

    You could use MLTactivator to activate. It does tie your system to another PSN account. Just wait it out as Adrenaline without the need for a base game or activation is coming Funny thing about PSN and henkaku... they blocked us from activating, they blocked us from downloading stuff from the store, but we can still play online multiplayer games.... Kind of dumb that they revoked store access considering even people with Henkaku do still buy stuff Enso is good. I like it a lot. Once you get it setup so that your SD card is mounted as UX0: on boot you are good. Now need to run henkaku everytime, and no need to mount the SD card manually after every reboot.

    so, after some deliberation with Zer0Tolerance, we decided to release an updated version of the lv2 exploit that my friend released a long time ago. First, some notes: This exploit was patched on 4.40, NOT on 4.45 There isn't just ONE non checked pointer, there are FOUR! they are all 4 now checked in 4.40 /* * lv2 SysCall 670 (0x29E): sys_rsx_context_allocate * @param context_id (OUT): RSX context, E.g. 0x55555555 (in vsh.self) * @param lpar_dma_control (OUT): Control register area. E.g. 0x60100000 (in vsh.self) * @param lpar_driver_info (OUT): RSX data like frequencies, sizes, version... E.g. 0x60200000 (in vsh.self) * @param lpar_reports (OUT): Report data area. E.g. 0x60300000 (in vsh.self) * @param mem_ctx (IN): mem_ctx given by sys_rsx_memory_allocate * @param system_mode (IN): */ /* After some verification it turns out that 4 pointers aren't checked They are: context_id lpar_dma_control lpar_driver_info lpar_reports we can write values at: rsx_context + 0x04 (4Bytes) - context_id rsx_context + 0x20 (8Bytes) - lpar_dma_control rsx_context + 0x30 (8Bytes) - lpar_driver_info rsx_context + 0x40 (8Bytes) - lpar_reports to properly specify a kernel address use ULL for big numbers */ you can test this for instance on a 4.21 cfw console by specifying an address in one of the parameters and then dumping memory before and after running the syscall. just be careful that you need to be able to write to that region! https://www.sendspace.com/file/rnf0eg ^ link to the exploit Many thanks to @IronMan and @AlexAltea for the help. this exploit will be even better later, so stick around
