    So... I was scanning the interwebz looking for any possible updates on a 6.38 HEN. And I came across this:

    http://m33user.netboarder.com/f2-m33-custom-firmwares


    What the hell is this? People on the forum are reporting it working, is it all just an elaborate hoax? I am going to download one of these and see what's up.


    Apparently doing further research, this is NOT DAX (as expected) but somebody else just modifying (by hex edit) the name of PRO, and editing a few things.


    I am posting this here now as a warning for people because I have not heard anything about this yet until now and this has surfaced just recently, so... yeah.


    This "M33" admin of the site claims to be releasing a 6.38 HEN soon a well. WTF is up with that? Sounds like some asshole is taking DAX, VF, Coldbird, TN, and Davee's glory. But IF he releases a (legit) 6.38 HEN first it WOULD be a huge contribution to the scene.





    Discuss.

    I remember that. Yeah, it was just fool hexediting and reverse-engineering PRO. I wouldn't even worry about it, as it's nowhere near as popular as PRO and TN.

    Either way, I think people should know so NOOBS don't fall prey to it. I mean... So many people still follow the DAX and M33 names, it's easy to be mislead by something like this.

    Also, look at these assholes capitalizing on his success as well... with garbage scam "unofficial" DAX sites.

    http://www.darkalex.com/psp-custom-firmware.htm

    http://dark-alex.org/

    I HATE these types of people. Don't worry, no ISOs or warez in the links. And they can't even get their info right... first site says "5.40 Revision-a for 3000" was his last released CFW. BS.

    Dude, chill. Anyone with half a brain can figure out that those are fake, and why were you searching for them anyway? Just so you'd have something to post about?

    Don't be a dick. [​IMG]

    I was searching a few things:

    1. if there is any progress on 6.38 HEN
    2. Any news on M33 (every once in a while I check)
    3. "Dark Alex" for the hell of it, to see if his site ever came back up.


    I'm not freaking out, so no need to tell me to chill. I am not "trying to find something" to post about I am just posting these fakes so people know. NOT EVERYBODY knows this shit is fake.

    I always believe gaining more knowledge is a good thing and some people (who posted on the fake M33 forum) even have fallen for this. Not everyone is "as smart" as you, so try to help educate them instead of cluttering threads with hurtful comments Bro.

    Schlupi is a courageous firmware guinea pig. Risking his hardware for the sake of others. Give him some slack. I for one am very grateful.

    yeah i know some people dont get it even though they were noobs before. i believe noobs need to search but they can be helped but not spoon fed the answer. some noobs are quich with their reseach and fuck em selves over by bein too quick on the draw which is what your search will help prevent here.

    well guess i better catch some z's it 2 in the morning where i live. good night all

    If you check the Domain details you can see it's still owned/registered to a Spanish address and by Dark Alex the developer.(registered 2006)

    As for the HEN he has reportedly made, this is quite clearly a load of crap. He claims he found a VSH exploit - this is both unnecessary (seeing as signing can be used to execute code) and would be a user mode exploit on its own - he'd also need a kernel mode exploit. Anyone could fake that screenshot using any CFW or one of the 6.35/6.20 HENs and a simple plugin.
