About the webkit exploit

Post by CoolMan1999x » Sat Jan 31, 2015 11:07 am

I don't want to sound spoiled but lately I have noticed that the homepage started talking about kexploits again, is there gonna be any progress regarding the web exploit? if not does that mean releasing the 50+ exploits was a big loss to the ps vita scene?

Thanx :D

ps: Tried learning reverse engineering for the modules but hhhhhhh its too much for me :lol:

Guess there is always work being done behind the scene even if its not announced.
As of right now, webkit is our best crack to the vita's entrance and our best shot to discover an even bigger one which will hopefully lead us one day to running unsigned code on our vita.

Just be patient. Rome wasn't built in a day. Just because you haven't heard anything and we are still getting PSP stuff doesn't mean there isn't a lot of work going on you don't know about. Just chill and hope. That's what I do. LOL

Also lol at let PSP die, let native Vita live. It is not like PSP devs are stopping people from exploring vita by threatening them.

Vita devs are completely incapable of making any progress while PSP devs release stuff. :D (being sarcastic for those who don't know)

What surprises me is to see any release on smthg like the 3DS, somehow vita-similar security wise (smealum hacks really looked complex anyway so I just wonder how they got so motivated to achieve that)

IMO there is one big problem with Vita hacking: separation.
All vita devs I know either work with a "team" or another, but rarely do they work with "everyone".
This meas there's a big gap between the various people that are actually doing something, so when one "team" hits a wall,
it usually makes progress stop rather than make them focus on something else (like helping another team with something).
There is also trust issues. None of the "teams" actually trust other people or like the idea of sharing their info.
This is both good and bad, on one side they want to protect their information as we never know how Sony could change things
up and impove security just with very little info, but on the other side it also slows things down a lot, usually to a halt.
Also, PSP hacking doesn't exactly stop already established developers, but it does prevent newcomers from being interested
in the Vita (I have heard about a lot of devs who would have joined Vita hacking had it not be for PSPemu hacking taking
all the news and glory) it simply gives the image that the Vita scene is not interested in native hacking to outsiders so they
just end up ignoring it right away and going to other platforms like the 3DS, which has successfully moved on from DS
hacking to native hacking.

these scenes tend to be incredibly insular + not good for newbies. Just finding people who are friendly enough to help with compiling basic programs is even something that's probably not going to happen. I shudder to think of how bad it'd be for someone trying to jump straight into vita stuff.
