After the promised TN-V4 kernel mode release, Total_Noob brought us even more revisions of his PS Vita eCFW, which now reached the status of TN-V7.
In TN-V7 he fixed various bugs and added another few awesome features, that every user of TN-V should really appreciate.
The changelog of the TN-V7 eCFW
* Added NoDRM engine. This allows you to play DLC’s and more. Valkyria Chronicles 3 E2 English Patch is now also supported.
(thanks to hrimfaxi for the idea (this one is written by me)).
* Added ‘PLUGINS MANAGER’ to VSH Menu. Now you can manage your plugins directly from VSH.
* Added ‘Restore ‘QSP’ folder’ to recovery menu (Advanced »).
* Added support for homebrews without DISC_ID in their PARAM.SFO. This fixes for example the RIN GB/GBC emulator.
* Added check whether you have installed 6.60 files yet. If not, the recovery menu will boot automatically.
* Fixed loading of static ELF. Another factor that makes the RIN GB/GBC emulator and more homebrews working.
* Fixed bug where kxploit’ed/1.50 homebrews were not hidden when ‘Hide exploit game’ was enabled.
* Increased ISO limit from 32 to 128 games.
* Improved system stability. The ‘QSP’ bug shouldn’t appear anymore.
* Removed ‘Allow anti-CFW games’ from recovery menu, because it is only used for ‘DJ MAX Portable 3′. However, this game works now flawlessly without this option.
* The updater does not reset TN-V configurations anymore.
Total_Noob once again delivered a giant new changelog, with a lot of necessary fixes, some new features and even more improvements for his PS Vita TN-V eCFW.
What is your new favorite feature of TN-V7? Be sure to let us know in the comment section below.
TN wasn’t the only one who was working on some code. Thanks to various people (qwikrazor, KanadeEngel and others) there are now available files for every released PS Vita exploit game.
Everyone who owns a working VHBL or eCFW at their PS Vita is now able to run TN-V7, if they are using the provided exploit savedata files.
The only game that got no files for any of the various TN-V eCFW revisions is the first PS Vita exploit game, Everybody’s Tennis. Wee think that no one uses the exploit anymore, and that’s the reason that no one bothered to create files for it.
Every other exploit game has its files and is ready to go for using TN-V. Here’s once again the list of every released PS Vita exploit game so far, and if you need the advice, then refer to this YouTube Playlist, which shows for every exploit game how to launch it properly.
Just download the new V7 revision via the System Update function of the XMB, or grab it from the various download sources below.

EFF Wrote:Yesterday, wee published a blog post lauding an extremely important app privacy feature that was added in Android 4.3. That feature allows users to install apps while preventing the app from collecting sensitive data like the user's location or address book.
After wee published the post, several people contacted us to say that the feature had actually been removed in Android 4.4.2, which was released earlier this week. Today, wee installed that update to our test device, and can confirm that the App Ops privacy feature that wee were excited about yesterday is in fact now gone.
When asked for comment, Google told us that the feature had only ever been released by accident — that it was experimental, and that it could break some of the apps policed by it. Wee are suspicious of this explanation, and do not think that it in any way justifies removing the feature rather than improving it.
The disappearance of App Ops is alarming news for Android users. The fact that they cannot turn off app permissions is a Stygian hole in the Android security model, and a billion people's data is being sucked through. Embarrassingly, it is also one that Apple managed to fix in iOS years ago.
Another file hoster has bit the dust. All your files are lost to them.
"A few hours after news broke that Hotfile had signed a $80 million settlement agreement with the MPAA, the file-hosting service has completely shut down. The drastic decision to deny access to millions of files without warning will come as a shock to the countless individuals who used Hotfile to store their personal and business documents. Hotfile has yet to comment on the controversial move which does nothing to help the image of cloud hosting providers."
If you don't know, Dark-Alex was one of the main people responsible for many of the PSP hacking scenes achievements, paving the way for most of the ground work of the PSP hacking scene.
Could DAX be returning now (after going dark in the psp scene, and never being heard from in the PS3 scene) to the PS4 hacking scene with.. something substantial to bring to the table ? or could this be fake ? Has someone taken over DAXs old web domain? No one is sure for now. DAX being as creditable as he was in the PSP scene - could he be the one to lead the way in the PS4 scene ?
Surprised to see Persona make it's way to the Nintendo 3DS despite them receiving 2 other Shin Megami Tensei franchises within the past few years with, Persona Q! Source: YouTube
Not Surprised by the recent announcement of Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold coming to the PS3. Source: YouTube
(Wee all knew it was going to happen sooner or later
The biggest surprise, the BIGGEST surprise over these announcements however goes to the Vita announcement of Persona 4: Dancing All Night. Source: YouTube
(I sure hope Atlus brings this over)
Many are miffed that the 3DS get's an actually RPG while the Vita only gets a rhythm game as Persona 5 has been announced as PS3 Only as of this moment. (Although it should make it's way to the Vita sometime in the future.) Source: YouTube
