The Beginning of a New ERA for the PSVita hacking scene



“Update this now works on firmware 3.18 and it also works for PlayStation TV firmware 3.20 “

Yesterday, DaveeFTW released some interesting info on the Psvita Webkit exploit. At the moment it is only good for firmware 2.60, but as dave said “it should be simple to adapt to new firmware”. So now that this info has been released, other developer’s can start playing around with ROP script’s.  Use this to test your vita:



” Webkit Exploit

This is a PoC of webkit exploit running on psvita. The PoC will work on firmware 2.60 only, but should be simple to adapt to new firmwares.

The modified PoC removes the JIT working of the exploit and replaces it with the ability to launch ROP based scripts. This will allow interested developers to play around with ROP and learn about the securities of modern day systems.”
