    Hmm, now I'm seriously considering getting one of these, although I'll need some money for it... Anyone care to donate to 'charity'? [​IMG]

    A little old, but still it's news. Right now I'm just waiting for a full speed n64 emulator (DaedalusX64) to work 100% on the GO. GPSP Kai is just going to have to hold me over.

    Hackmii had an article about this kind of thing recently. Lots of groups don't release their exploits because they don't want piracy (which, while bad and all, also causes companies to tighten their security, as seen with the PS3) and there's no real way to stop pirated games while allowing homebrew as long as unethical coders have access to the exploit...

    I really can't fathom why they're holding on to it. It's not as if Sony will be introducing new hardware any time soon, so there's nothing "later" to hold out for.

    "fimeware"? [​IMG]

    OP needs fixing.

    I'll probably still be fine with my 1000 for now, and for now the 3DS is getting more attention from me...[​IMG]

    Because having an exploit can help finding and testing new exploits on newer firmwares. Kernel mode exploits are hard to find, so are generally kept until there is more than one known, and something particularly useful can be done. Some devs also don't release their kernel mode exploits because of piracy, notably Team Typhoon, whose ChickHEN was abused for piracy by the temporary CFWs, and so despite their efforts to prevent piracy (blocking a few calls commonly used by ISO loaders), piracy went ahead, and understandably IMO, they will not release their (already shown) HEN for newer firmwares.
