Coldbird leaves the scene after his Vita kernel exploit leaked
Welp this Is typical for the scene like with the whole “GEN” (custom firmware developers for PSP) incident and the releasing of the Monster Hunter Portable 3rd CFW patch. Their was basically a CFW In development for the Vita and was actually loading ISO’s (there Is videos of this on youtube) and then! that CFW’s files fell into the wrong hands.
The CFW files originally belonged to a coder that went by the name of ColdBird, the kernel exploit was originally given to a very private group of beta testers. And then!…by a guy that has strong social networking skills that goes by the name of Sam Jordan (How ordinary) and found their way to the files and decided to take them totally public. But don’t get your pants sucked in to your butt crack just yet, just keep In mind that this does not mean you can load ISO’s yet, the kernel exploit IS encrypted very heavily. ColdBird has quit the scene but this Isn’t the first time he quit, he also quit before PRO-C CFW was released.
Comment by Wololo:
Some files containing a User mode exploit in Urbanix, as well as a Kernel exploit (that still has to be reverse engineered) were leaked by a youtube user named Sam Jordam. This guy was a known a##hole for some time already, and has proven to be up to his reputation. The files he stole then leaked are encrypted and not usable for anybody in their current state. One of the only persons who could have helped with this, famous hacker Coldbird, decided to leave the scene after this. There is so far one can go for the love of homebrews.
And a new game-related user mode exploit that may or may not be able to allow the running of VHBL on Sony’s newly-released 1.81 firmware. The title of this game Is called Urbanix. So If you had any sense at all you would grab this game before the exploit becomes “famous” to everyone.
