    From what I've heard, there's no kernal exploit and *hax still work on 10.x.

    People like to stay on the lowest firmware they can in case of future exploits, and a lot of people(myself included) only got into homebrew recently.

    That small strand of hope a kernal hack will be released for their version.

    noun; a particular place or position.
    The rule of thumb is that you don't update until you're sure that everything is okay and homebrewers give the go-ahead. It's also in the hope that something shows up that we may not have found until much later. It's unlikely but still a possibility.

    There was a ARM11 Kernal sploit "scare". It was real (I think that's what I read, idk) but it wasn't an exploit. Just a vuln, and no exploit to get us their so yeah no use unless @MassExplosion213 has made only progress. Hope that helps.

    I will say that as soon as the next Sm4sh character is released my hand will be forced and I'll need to update. A man has to have his priorities.

    a better question is why rush to update to 10.x. do you have money burning a hole in your pocket so you need to buy a eshop game . . . "you can give it to me instead :mthr: "

    they stay on 9x inhope. hope that they can forget the system for like a year and come back to find all kinds of tweaks for it like i did my psvita:teach:

    Honestly, for the answer to this, just check 3dbrew. See what all was patched. And then realize this. The "elites" have a lot of private stuff. Would they really tell you that their exploit was patched? No. There's always unreported updates and fixes.

    Well, we do have proof at least some of that is correct.

    Was the 9.2 kernel exploit disclosed? Not until after someone publicly found it. So yes, it is true. But I won't say much more on this. I don't wanna hype things.

    The secrets are driving everyone nuts. Still I can understand why some of it would be kept secret.
