    What the title says... I understand the group working on it is busy with KTM, but we've had no updates on the progress of memchunkhax2. So has it been cancelled?

    KTM is memchunkhax2. Or it at least uses it to get ARM11 Kernel access and downgrade

    Any app that downgrades uses memchunhax2. It grants you ARM11 kernel access. Otherwise, you won't be able to launch sysupdater in the first place.

    What do you think downgrading is? It's installing CIAs. :P
    It can also be used to install legit CIAs, but there's not much point in that when you can downgrade.

    I think it's safe to assume it's still going. It really even hasn't been that long so I'd say the current pace of work is pretty impressive.

    Also, just some advice for maintaining sanity on this site. An absence of progress reports (especially every single) does not mean an absence of progress. Some people have free time and other people don't. Stuff like this isn't a job and the more it starts to feel like one the more inclined people are to stop doing it.

    Memchunkhax2 is an exploit, the exploit is out there and FBI/Sysupdater are using it right now, KTM is going to use it too.

    This.
    memchunkhax2 is a complete exploit. It's not cancelled. It already exists...
