On this episode of ModChat we're delving into a couple of huge releases which graced the PS3 and PS Vita scenes! First up is PS3HEN, a homebrew enabler for the PlayStation 3 compatible with ALL models running 4.84 HFW! Secondly, TheFloW released his third PS Vita jailbreak about a week ahead of the initial ETA, this being the Trinity exploit chain! Among this we also take a look at A Dark Room's hidden Ruby interpreter on the Switch as well as several more topics we've seen the past few weeks. Stay tuned!
On this episode of ModChat we go over a bit of everything from teaser announcements, to YouTube developments, and of course the latest releases in the modding scene! TheFloW has given the public an "eta wen" as well as more details for an upcoming PS Vita 3.69/3.70 exploit update. We also discuss Nintendo's new tactic of taking down Nintendo Switch related homebrew videos on YouTube. And due this releasing right after ModChat 050... We give PS3Xploit some love with their latest release of tools for firmware 4.84 on the PS3!
50 episodes into ModChat, crazy! We definitely plan to touch base on this milestone, but we of course have to have our modding topics as well. Some of this episode's topics include highlighting a few awesome Vita homebrew games from VitaHEX, a new GTA patch from TheFloW, Switch controller support in Chromium, and more! Stay tuned.
A slower news month this time around, but still some awesome releases and news to cover regardless! In this episode we discuss the teased progress of homebrew coming on PS Vita firmware 3.70, PSXITA releasing their own distribution of Linux for the PS4, a PS Vita downgrader released by TheFloW, and more! Stay tuned.
New year, new month, new episode! Over 4 years of ModChat going strong now! In this episode we discuss RetroArch being ported to 3 consoles, an amendment which could throw a wrench in the modding scene in Japan, and the release of reF00D for the PS Vita! Those are just a few of the highlighted topics we have for this month, stay tuned and listen for more.
A light month for topics this time around due to the third annual end of the year celebration of making this a big Q&A session! For the most part we normally start these with no topics in mind and focus everything on what the audience wants us to talk about, so be prepared for a laid back show. We are wanting to touch up on some big topics this time around though! Including the rapid progression of PlayStation Classic mods and Nintendo going after a few people selling pirated games, such as Soulja Boy! Aside from that, we'll be hanging with you all and answering what we can. Alcohol might or might not be involved, tune in to find out the answer to that.
ModChat 046 - PS4 HDMI-CEC Code Execution, Legal DRM Exemptions, PCSX ReARMed in PlayStation Classic
More news coming out of the Fail0verflow camp with a new write-up detailing possible code execution on all current PS4 hardware models thanks to the console's HDMI-CEC features! We also discuss several new legal changes towards the way DRM can be broken at a federal level. We also get to revisit the PlayStation Classic we fanboyed over with MVG in a previous episode, as news has come out that it uses the open-source PCSX ReARMed emulator as opposed to what many expected to be an in-house, closed-source emulator written by Sony. Other topics include the troubles Fallout 76 could have once it retails, YouTube terminating channels focused on reverse engineering, and more! Stay tuned.
MVG returns for another episode of ModChat, this time with even more emulation! We look into the recent release of RetroArch 1.7.5, with this having an official port to Switch as opposed to RetroNX. We also discuss the initial tease of RetroArch coming out on... PS2?! And of course we can't forget Nintendo's official NES emulator on the Switch now getting cracked open to play your own choice of NES games. In terms of Jailbreak news we also look into the PS3 getting an update which patches PS3Xploit on the latest firmware, a PS4 reseller sued for preloading and selling PS4 consoles with pirated games, and even iOS gets some love! Pangu has announced that they've Jailbroken iOS 12 on the iPhone XS, so look forward to Paranoid Coder's thoughts on it with his recent switch from a Pixel 2 to the iPhone XS.
This episode has us taking a look at the latest news surrounding the 6.0.0 update for Nintendo Switch, as well as the preparation being done around this update for CFW and other applications in the homebrew community. We check out some new releases, such as SwitchME and a guide dedicated to ReiNX, as well as chime in on a new takedown Nintendo has put through for the RPG Maker toolkit called Pokémon Essentials. Also, PS2 support dropping in... 2018? More on that in the show.
Is a ROMsite still a ROMsite without the ROMs? We plan to tackle that in this episode of ModChat when we discuss several ROMsites taking down their collections of downloads with or without the intervention of another company coming into play. We also take a look at the upcoming news Al Azif, known for his awesome ps4-exploit-host program, assembling a blacklist of users the PS4 homebrew community can point newcomers towards and let people know who cannot be trusted in regards to anything newsworthy. Finally, a segment about a 3DS update? Normally this wouldn't be a big deal but it seems 11.8 made a ton of under the hood tweaks, as well as server-side tweaks which seem to backport some of the anti-piracy challenges from the Switch over to the 3DS!
