    By what I read, it's seens to exploit is userland only like they say.

    If that's true so no CFW or VITA-Roms

    So, I wonder what the secret something nice is. We might be finding out rather soon.

    Yeah if it's a Webkit Exploit (Which it is) then it's most likely a Userland Exploit only.

    Close eh? If you say so...

    Anyways once "Stage 3 (ROP payload 2)" is fully reversed, we will release the source up to that point. That should be enough for very easy offline hosting.

    It's sad that you have to reverse-engineer a reverse-engineering tool to get it's full capabilities.

    As far as I can tell having userland does not mean the vita will be fully open. Which means people should stop fucking around and open the damn thing.

    Yeah, you usually do not have access to lower level functions most of the time with userland exploits; Kernel = think jailbreak for iOS, or gaining root access for Android/Linux (although that's almost an entirely different subject/exploits with completely different results).
    Userland can allow homebrew (bypassing simple security checks) but kernel hacks can open up much more lower level functions for complete hardware control (Higher overclocking anyone? We'll see...) and backup loaders. Kernel = God/Superuser. This, mind you, is a vastly simplified example and by no means is me trying to sound versed in this topic, It's just what I've notice through the years of console modding/hacking.

    For example: You use a "web browser" for exploiting some security flaw (i.e. a broken Webkit); since the web browser was in userland (has access to the filesystem, etc.), any exploit spawned from the web browser will inherit the web browser's permissions (i.e. userland). That's why it's usually the first step in hacking and gaining kernel access.

    Again, oversimplification. Please feel free to correct me, it's late/early and I should be sleeping.

    The vita has more homebrew in like a week than the wiiu has had in months! I was glad to wipe the dust off of the both of them, but it seems my vita is the only one I continually use to try the new homebrew. Paint and pacman don't really excite me on wiiu.
