    Some interesting info about RAM issues with OFW 2.60 and release date for TN-V4/kexploit from Jd8531.

    To quote:

    After some analysis it seems the latest Psvita official 2.60 firmware update did a little more than we thought.

    With exploits, the amount of RAM available to use was limited to us to use. However, back in firmware 2.10 Sony cleared up that availability, whether intentionally or unintentionally, it allowed us to use more than normal. After that update it was possible to use around 64MB. Its unfortunate however, that with the latest firmware that space that allowed us to use the extra RAM is no longer available. So the summation is that TN-V4 will not be able to support the increased memory for 2.60 and above. However, this feature will be available to those under 2.60 when Total_Noob releases the new version of his CEF TN-V later.

    So this is something that you’ll need to consider if you are thinking of updating from a previously released kernel exploit. Now, depending how porting goes for the new kernel exploit release it is completely possible to use the new exploit on current user mode releases to be able to use said memory increase features.

    As for an estimated release date on TN-V4 (and possibly a kernel exploit); Total_Noob says that it will most likely be after the launch of the PS4. There are two reasons for this. One, is that TN is very busy and needs time to work on the release and straighten everything out. Another, is that we will most likely see another official Vita firmware update before the launch of the PS4, and that will probably be a very big update. That update (which should be 3.00) will most likely incorporate features for the PS4 such as Remote Play. Waiting until after, is the best option. As for the release of the PS4, there hasn’t been any word on that yet but my best bet is to say around late October/November.

    Either way until then there will be some other goodies, and announcements. So, as always check back!

      Argh, strange but well OK Sony...

      Total-Noob is such a boss, whilst TN-V may not be perfect, he's done a great job for the Vita scene by giving us a fully-functioning XMB for eCFW. Hope to see him add some more features and hopefully an update soon on Coldbird's PSX sound support since he's been back in the scene the last couple of months.

      Indeed.
      Something weird about this last OFW. Didn't update though.

      Announcement: I will release a new usermode exploit soon (Acid_Snake)

      Like I said, there are a few reasons why I want to release a new exploit right after Gamocracy was released not so long ago, here they are:
      - Total_Noob might release a new kernel exploit
      - Firmware 2.60 is a big update
      - This exploit, afaik, is available at least in EU and US, and should also be available in Japan and other territories, allowing for more people to have access to at least VHBL.
      - The exploit’s compatibility is a lot better than Gamocracy, Apache, and most other previously released VHBL exploits.

      Now, let me make this clear: THE EXPLOIT WILL BE RELEASED WITH VHBL UNTIL TN CONFIRMS A NEW KERNEL EXPLOIT, so I don’t want anyone asking “d0es it pl4y 1S0s?” cause I’ll directly ignore you. If TN decides to release a kernel exploit, YOU WILL SEE THE NEWS HERE, until then: VHBL IS ALL YOU GOT. I know I sound harsh, but it’s a pain how the forums becomes bloated with people asking the same questions over and over again when the answer can easily be found with little to no effort.

      On the other hand, I will continue to feed you with news on the development on this: FAQs, Compatibility List, Tech Support through the forums, any possible kernel exploit release, etc, so don’t hesitate to ask questions that are hard to find the answer for.

      Last but not least, if you find someone leaking the name of the game on some other forum, news site, or whatever, tell me or wololo by PM, at the end of the release I will give a 20$ PSN code to the person who reports most leaks.

      Have fun with the exploit, eCFW or not.

      i haven't touched my vita since the uno exploit around christmas last year. i don't even know what menu i have on it. its definitely the first one that was available for the uno exploit. it really blows that the vita did so horribly in sales which in turn gave developers no ambition to develop for it. maybe later today ill throw tn-v on it. thanks for the info [MENTION=186943]hellsing9[/MENTION]!

      I read over wololo that if someone notices that someone is leaking something. They will gift a 20 voucher PSN for the one to alert them.
      (Maybe i read wrong that message.)

      But if it's true, they are dead serious on this matter.

      [MENTION=251555]UrbanAnonymous[/MENTION] Neither do i. I have only one game...lol i use it to browse/skype etc.
