Note from Hackinformer: “Hello everyone, before you read this article, I like to apologize for not clearing the air up about this pool exploit stuff. Next don’t blame Wololo or the Zett for any of this as they don’t know about it and only reported the news. Which has been our guide for MONTHS!! but whatever, next why doesn’t anyone ask us on our forums, email, twitter etc.. So sorry about any confusion! Now read the article and this should clear things up.”
Okay, I was really busy the last several days and this statement should have been public a lot earlier. I can’t believe all this became such a big deal…
Anyway, like everyone else you probably heard about these Exploit Games over at wololo.net by The_Zett. He found out about this because of me silently writing it in my news. No one else seemed to care about it + my Firmware Guide stated it as exploitable for weeks!! So you can think of this as a test or whatever you want.
After there was an EU only release with Puzzle Scape I sat down again and started exploit hunting for US games. Since I know most of you don’t want to pay high prices, I started looking to re-exploit popular and formerly used games so that there is a chance some people already own it. The ‘Icon games’ are, once again, full of flaws and so is Pool Hall Pro and it’s european counterpart World of Pool. Additionally they might launch eCFW which Puzzle Scape couldn’t, but we will need to wait for qwikrazor about that.
So the fact is: YES, there is yet another (the 4th) exploit in Pool Hall Pro (and probably in World of Pool)
Why didn’t we do a Ninja Release?
Because I really think Sony has other things to worry about than patching more usermode exploits right now and, as Puzzle Scape showed, they don’t even bother to take exploit games from the store anymore.
Why is it grayed out in the PlaystationFirmwareGuide?
Simple. Because its not released yet and ergo confusing for people using my guide. On the other hand no one noticed that for weeks so whatever..
(RANT) I can’t believe that everyone is going crazy like this and even attacking Wololo and especially The Zett for only reporting this. Right now I am tempted to release nothing. This was a test and that’s why we silently TRIED to spread these news. As it turned out that was not a good idea and we won’t do it again like this. Now, I want to apologize for Zett getting into all this. Why does everyone go off blaming others when we are right here though?! NO ONE asked me or hackinformer about it.
@freakler94 Funny. The info was "just there", and no one cared about it…

Great so when is the release?
Currently on ice because of obvious reasons. It was planned to get released right with the new Firmware Update which now is postponed. Which, btw, might be another reason everything got that f**ed up. (/RANT)
So lets see what sony will do and I will get back to qwikrazor because of the release. We’ll keep you updated..
