    Seems like the "hacker" actually existed, NWPlayer123 was posting about it on twitter and he/she's a trustable source.
    In the end they got the kexploit to work but couldn't get network dumping to work in time to dump the whole game.

    The "hacker" was legit, they just didn't manage to get it done in time.

    Yeah that's what I meant. I remember reading a thread on this site here a guy got his hands on one. It could not pull up the internet browser and only could run demo discs.

    The units were CAT-R units. The exploit didn't work as is, but was trivial to port.
