    So, a post on twitter was made by (I think plutoo?) that says "NO" to a question about heaphax. Is heaphax dead?

    Gambia, The
    AFAIK yup. I think they patched the exploit in 11.0

    How ironic to see you on one post I commented on, then another.

    Tbh, I don't get the whole heaphax thing anyway, we've known it was patched on 11.0 for a while now, and yet people can't seem to be able to read 3dbrew and just come on here and post about it

    even if we had heaphax, we could only install legit CIAs, except downgrade CIAs because it's being checked by ARM9

    Not exactly an arm11 kernel exploit, but a (n3DS only) way to take over a service called NS to get the am:u service (legit CIA installation and formerly downgrading).

    Tbh I myself couldn't tell you how it was patched, but smea himself said:
    I don't know how, though. Maybe I'll look around 3dbrew later, but it's really a pain in the ass to navigate the vulnerabilities/exploits page.

    Yeah because legit cia installation would be a big step up for 11.0

    I mean, from what I read heaphax isn't dead or patched. Its still there but Nintendo added a security to memchunkhdr to not be able to write on it. Making it harder to use the heaphax

    Devs have to somehow try to evade/exploit the new memchunkhdr security to be able to use heaphax

    But for my understanding it's still there...

    Uh, no. That's memchunkhax2.1, a full blown arm11 kernel exploit. This isn't that, it's a service takeover to get legit CIA installation without kernel access.

    I suggest you read the heaphax part of it (specially the one who explains that if it has been fixed or not) here.

    I must be confused... I thought heaphax was just another name for snshax. snshax is just spawning 2 instances of ns pushing it below the gspwn cutoff. It has nothing to do with memchunks... Right?

    It could be using some memchunk parts, maybe this is snshax 2.0? XD

    But tbh, I'm pretty sure this can be revived with an exploit on/by evading the memchunkhdr security...

    Trying to revive a patched exploit is stupid, there are plenty other exploits in kernel11, it'd be smarter to try to take one of them over.

    i love that people don't understand what heaphax exactly does and are describing it as snshax which was patched

    im sure there are 2-3 arm 11 kernel exploits but they're not released publicly

    it's already possible... afaik, ctr-httpwn still isn't patched...
