November 3, 2012 // 6:38 am - Following up on the previous release and confirming the rumor, today wololo has officially named the next exploitable game that Teck4 is porting TN's eCFW to is indeed Gravity Crash Portable.

Below are the details from his blog, to quote: If you missed both the Ubanix and the Mad blocker alpha exploits, today might be your lucky day. Japanese Developer Teck4 has ported TN’s eCFW to a new game exploit. The game is, as I type this, still available on most stores.

A few weeks ago, developer frostegater announced he was working on a new game exploit in order to bring Total_Noob’s eCFW to even more Vita owner. Sadly, he discovered while working on international versions of the game, that porting his exploits to all locales would not be as easy as expected. Luckily for us, Teck4 also had his own exploit in the work, and was nice enough to share it with the world. Frostegater eventually contributed to this exploit as well, by porting it to the US and EU versions of the game.

The game with the vulnerability is Gravity Crash Portable. In order to run TN’s eCFW through Teck4′s exploit, you will need a legit copy of that game, that you need to purchase online for your Vita on Sony’s PSN. It is available in most stores, but not all of them. If your locale doesn’t have the game and you still want the exploit, it is recommended you create an account in another locale, and buy the appropriate PSN card (for the right store) online.

As for the previous game exploit releases on the Vita, we have gone through a “Ninja” release over the past few weeks in order to let people know about the game a few days before the public announcement. If you’re interested in joining our future Ninja releases, you just need to subscribe to our forum at /talk. On that topic, I might have an article to write about leakers and the sites that blindly let them leak... but on the other hand I am not sure I want to provide free advertising to the sites that jeopardize the scene.

The files for the exploit will be distributed in a few days. In the past, Sony has usually removed exploited games from their stores within 48h, and we have generally released the files after that.

Please note that I haven’t personally tested the JP exploit or its ports to the EU and US versions, but Teck4 and frostegater are both trusted members of the scenes, as well as their testers.

The name of the new exploited game has been revealed (not pubblically for all yet).

I don't care to much because i have already gotten Urbanix, but who missed the two previous game should be ready for the next few days

The last ninja release was announced days before the exploit and Sony only removed it from PSN when the exploit was released. So as soon as its announced you have a while before its taken down. If they wait a week or a month it should still be available in the PSN store till the exploit is released.

Pretty stupid of Sony to remove a game if there is no exploit so they wait for that to get released then remove it.

ninja released happen DAYS before the public release and the game gets taken down. plus there are always people giving away hints if you're not on the earlier side of the release.

...this time... for sure...

Realistic thinking: I already know that due to time zones differences the ninja release will happen when I will be fast asleep and I will miss it this time too. I feel it.

They are too quick to take down games from the store. Too darn quick.

For who missed the 2 previous kernel exploit, it seems that probably a new exploited game will be announced soon

From wololo (via wololo.net/2012/10/18/so-you-missed-both-the-urbanix-and-mad-blocker-alpha-exploits-seems-like-frostegater-might-have-something-for-you/):


So, you missed both the Urbanix and Mad Blocker Alpha exploits? Seems like Frostegater might have something for you…

Remember when I said there would probably be no new exploit release for a long time? Well, it seems I spoke a bit too soon.

Developer Frostegater, who was behind the Mad Blocker Alpha exploit (which TN ported to his eCFW) started a poll yesterday on our forums to see how many of you would be interested by a new exploit release that would bring TN’s Kernel exploit to even more people. The answers are mixed, but it is showing that a significant amount of people indeed missed both the Urbanix and the Mad Blocker Alpha exploits.

If you’re one of these people (or if on the contrary you strongly think a new exploit should *not* be released), raise your voice and vote in Frostegater’s poll here. But based on the current numbers, I’m pretty convinced the release is going to happen. This will probably be through one of our Ninja releases, although the people behind the exploit might want to go a different route…

Again, there are pros and cons to such a release. If this gets released now, it only benefits the few people who already missed 2 exploits, but if the hackers wait for a firmware update by Sony, then the exploit will be less useful since we can safely assume that TN’s kernel exploit will be patched with the next Firmware… (still confused? Check for an explanation of the difference between the user mode and kernel exploits involved in this hack, here)

Well, either way, stay tuned, and if you already got CN’s eCFW running on your Vita, be a kind soul, and let your friends know, so that they don’t miss out for a third time!
