    Hacking Can we port Nintendo Switch OS on Nvidia Shield TV?

    Some interesting discussion points in here. I do wonder if it could happen. But the main thing that makes me interested is Fusee Gelee. That same exploit was considered so dangerous that everything other than the Switch actually got a service warning and computer bug number because of the power...

    Hacking Can we port Nintendo Switch OS on Nvidia Shield TV?

    The advantages would be obvious, considering it'd literally be a super-powered switch. And for dock mode titles, it'd work nearly flawlessly. It would also benefit from the Switch's near multi-task free environment, which would likely allow it to emulate devices that it couldn't handle on top of...

    Hacking Can we port Nintendo Switch OS on Nvidia Shield TV?

    I know this title sounds very strange because it's actually rather similar to another thread, but is actually very different. See Fusee Gelee, the hardware exploit as some may have saw, doesn't just affect Nintendo Switches. It also affects Nvidia Shield. However, unlike the console...

    Hacking QCMA Headaches...

    Kill me now. Well, on the bright side. At least I didn't update without it. I think that needs to be in the documentation: If you accidentally update without a PSN account, you're literally doomed, as QCMA won't work to get Vitashell, and without Vitashell you can't install ReNPDRM to get QCMA...

    Hacking QCMA Headaches...

    So...I have a problem. My Vita is 3.60, Slim. I have Enso installed. I'm trying to use QCMA to make the backup. I've never used QCMA before. It's complaining about my Vita being unregistered and not communicating with my Vita. It says apparently to use QCMA, you need a Vita with a PSN account...

    Hacking (HENkaku) Homebrew Request Thread

    A very quick request here. Is there a way Desmume Vita could be modified with one additional feature? Could there be a CPU clock control added, like SNES9X Vita? It actually runs very very well, so a little extra CPU speed would go a long way!

    Gaming what's the status of ps3 CFW in 2017

    If you watched the talk on PS3 at 27c3, you know that barring incredible amounts of rewrites to the PS3 hypervisor and other things, the PS3 itself only needs one thing, not two, to get hold of the ability to run a Henkaku equivilant on PS3. The LV1/Hypervisor for the ps3 does not properly...

    Hacking A Question Regarding PS3 Security (From a Simple Noob)

    Geohot only got sued because he's very public about what he's been doing. Consider Yifanlu, the guy who cracked Vita, and his team. Completely untouched. Not even a sniff in his direction. Because he didn't tell everyone his name is George Hotz and he comes from California. George Hotz and his...

    Hacking A Question Regarding PS3 Security (From a Simple Noob)

    Bump! Does no one have any answer to my question? o.O Is it just a bad question, or is it more just not really sure why either?

    Hacking A Question Regarding PS3 Security (From a Simple Noob)

    ...This may be one of the silliest questions around, so I apologize regarding this. I am fairly unfamiliar with the PS3 and do not know much about why this would or would not be difficult. So I'm just going to ask a very simple question here. I watched 27c3 when it first came out, and I watched...

    Hacking PS Vita needs Linux (Hear me out!)

    To be fair, I didn't personally want to run Kodi. I thought it'd be an interesting usage, but I felt other users would enjoy that more than I. For me, being able to boot into a Linux that is semi functional and could run a few programs...Firefox or K-Meleon, Java, and could functionally use an...

    Hacking PS Vita needs Linux (Hear me out!)

    I've looked at the Vita's hardware spec. Does it really use that much more required custom hardware than other consoles and devices? I guess what I'm trying to say is, I get why the PSP didn't have it, for example. But devices like the Wii, DS, the original Xbox, Xbox 360, use equally as...

    Hacking PS Vita needs Linux (Hear me out!)

    The PS Vita is a fantastic device. But one thing that I think would make it absolutely phenomenal, is if it had support for KEXEC into Linux (kinda like OtherOS from PS3). It has ample power to run it, both processor wise and has more than enough RAM to run smaller distros. But the real thing...

    Homebrew safefirmraunchhax - new Arm9 exploit discussion

    ...Um, but Emunand has similar problems. Try explaining to an 8 year old that to use DSIWare, you need to 'inject' it into both Emunand and SYSNand, and they might get a bit confused. But see, funny thing is...if you get confused on Emunand and SYSnand, and you mess that up? GG, Brick, device is...

    Homebrew A Reference Thread - How to uninstall A9LH properly?

    Will likely have a better implementation in firmware. So SD card payloads will probably become optional, as 'standard feature' CFWs could be used without any issues arising, like POCs like Shadownand deal with.

  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembly is actually great, gets you to run everything about 80% faster than C massaged code
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    with that all your assembler base will actually work

  • Coto @ Coto:
    even on embedded systems, without a damned debugger
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly
