h4ck.fi.st Currently Down

Because alot of people have been asking about this, I thought I'd give an update.

Basically, the server h4ck.fi.st was on, sitefrost's "Kiwi" server, was DDoSed yesterday, from what I know. For those who don't know, DDoS is a kind of internet attack involving spamming the hell out of a server. The people at sitefrost are working on getting the server back up, and it should be back ASAP. We're sorry for any inconvenience, but there isn't much we can do but wait for them to do their thing.

Advancedpsp.tk gone

Unfortunately it seems 000webhost is a sack of crap, and deleted advancedpsp without any reasoning or warning. According to m0skit0, it isn't coming back, and suggests you stay away from the host.

In order to try replacing it, TiPi made http://h4ck.fi.st/, which it seems plenty of people are starting to join as the new replacement. It has lots of fancy features which can take some getting used to, but it works.

As an update to the VSH crash I've been working on with TiPi, we've hit a bit of a snag in that the crash doesn't work as we thought it did, and I can't find what we are looking for because of it. I'm not giving up on it, or on looking for other crashes, just thought I'd share. I'm focusing mainly on VSH crashes because we're pretty well set with game exploits right now :P

An Update

I thought I'd give a small update for the few people who come visit my blog, considering it's been almost 2 weeks. Basically what has been slowing me down the past while is that I started helping people go through their crashes on the PSP, to see if we could find any new exploits.

I have been working mostly with TiPi, of advancedpsp.tk. There was one we found a short while ago that had potential, but we found that it had been patched on 5.50, and considering there is already enough on 5.03, we dropped it. Soon after we found a very buggy file that was very easy to cause crashes with, and not just 1, what TiPi eventually nicknamed "crash mode", where the whole system was doomed to eventually crash if you didn't turn it off. Before we got to test many of these, however, we stumbled across something else.

Half Byte Loader Revision 100

Sorry I haven't had much updates lately, but I've been able to free time and get myself back on track, I am working on the LanguageTool and will post it ASAP.

In other news, HBL r100 has just been released. Unfortunately nothing new for older users on the Patapon exploit, however HBL r100 has one major improvement, portability. This means it is easier to move HBL to other exploits, and this includes all three versions of "Everybody's Golf", which means people on OFW 6.3x now have a way to run homebrew. As wololo himself states, this isn't flawless yet, and has kinks to work out, but it works better than nothing.

Enjoy your homebrew, and I promise I will be working on all my projects more actively now. I have been picking up on OSL for graphics on PSP and have come up with some other possible future projects.
