    Following rumors of an impending PS Vita EOL hack, TheFloW has just released a PSA as well as some important information on his next and last jailbreak targeting OFW 3.69 and 3.70 of Sony's latest handheld console. The document, published on GitHub Gist, describes the exploit chain as drastically different from the previous ones: instead of relying on a WebKit or save data exploit, it will attempt to escape the PSP emulator and take control of the rest of the system from there. While novel, the downside of this approach is that it requires users to have a PSN account activated and linked to download a PSP game from the store - as such, Sony may be able to patch it in the future and lock out anyone who hasn't taken advantage of it yet.

    As a result, the developer is giving an abundant amount of time (6-8 weeks) to let interested users be prepared for the eventual release. His instructions on how to set up your console for the hack are as follows:
    Aside from the aforementioned timeframe, there is no definite ETA for a release yet.

    Sad that again, the self entiled fuck wits of the internet are still causing grief to possibly hinder ones motivation to continue their work in the console hacking scene.

    I have said it before many times. Devs should not use Social Media at all and just release their work silently without no possible ETA or, if anything is in development.

    That way you can get on with real life and attend to coding when desired without having to siff through spam on Twitter/FB because Billy Dickhead just bought a Vita on 3.70 and wants his CFW released today.

    I disagree. Social media is a decent way for devs to get their name out there. They can share their work, form connections with people in the industry, learn new tricks from fellow devs, etc. All of that can potentially lead to a job offer. That's not to say it's for everyone, but it can be useful to those who use it right.

    If it runs in PSP mode and you can back it up through qcma, it should be fine. Whether it's a demo or not isn't what's important.

    I would prefer it if he gave us more time to prep for this. There's already a good hack out for 3.68 and below, which is much easier to find nowadays. It would suck if sony patched this right away

    I forgot
    Use QCMA, not Sony's CMA. It's suggested because you can use it without having to update your Vita to the latest firmware, unlike CMA which does require it, and it has a couple extra features.
