    Well, the title pretty much says it all. Previously you needed to either be on 3.55, or Linux via OtherOS to toggle QA on/off, but Thanks to Smhabib you can now easily do it on 4.21+.
    Habib Toolbox with QA Toggle is available below, along with the QA Toggle standalone source code for those wishing to learn from it or port/build it for other purposes/versions.

    Okay, Smhabib has been pretty busy lately, lets go over some of the details.
    Habib Toolbox 1.02.02 was recently released, and I was a little preoccupied with some things yesterday so I’m sorry if I’m late on anything. Something I hadn’t specifically mentioned but I had briefly listed with the download links at the bottom of the page, is that currently Habib Toolbox is only built for 4.65. There was a little confusion about that in the forums, but it’s only meant for 4.65 Cobra CFWs.

    With his Toolbox release, Smhabib also released the source code he used to toggle the QA Token in Habib Toolbox. He specified that the method would work with 4.21+, but that the code might need to be adjusted. I guess this is where some of the confusion was, I should have been more specific with my original draft of this article. To be fair though, all of this was outlined in the release notes below and discussed within the forums.

    Now, apparently there was a bug with Habib Toolbox 1.02.01 preventing the console from being QA Flagged if it hadn’t previously been flagged before. With the release of Habib Toolbox 1.02.02, this was rectified.

    Also with this update Smhabib has provided us with a QA Toggle pkg for 4.21+ (links below).
    Before updating this article, I decided to give it a go on my Rogero 4.46 Cobra and it worked superbly.
    My system had already been QA flagged; I ran Habib’s 4.21+ QA Toggler, the screen went black for maybe 20seconds and then returned to XMB. I tested the QA button combo, and the QA Token was indeed removed/disabled.
    I ran QA Toggle again, there was another brief black screen and I was returned to XMB. This time when I did the QA button combo, the Debug Menu returned.

    Smhabib’s Announcement:

    since 4.xx(prolly 3.56+) sony protected the qa thing with ecdsa and we cant access it through UM in the gameos(preventing token from being written)

    so i just started once to look around qa.i was able to do it on 3.55 but not on 4.xx.
    now what i did to make that working was that i accessed HV scm through dm using VUART(packet id=0x900C) and wrote the token.this can be done from linux easily but we want from gameos right?
    sooooo I SUCCEEDED!!!
    this has been ported to habib toolbox and is bumped to v1.02.01 with many new features:
    1.lv1 dump
    2.lv2 swap from dev_flash or usb000
    3.toggle qa

    now i also made a standalone version with UGLY UNCLEANED SOURCE with all the **** i have tried past this week almost
    standalone version can be easily updated by updating around 7 offsets(6 lv1 and 1 lv2 for hvsc redirect)


    happy studying and using!!!!

    1.main.c offsets
    2.lv1_hvcall.c offset(lv2)

    this has been tested on 2 consoles and so far no problem is there BUT we dont make any guarantees
    this works on 4.65 but can be ported easily

    UPDATE #1:


    FW INDEPENDANT!!!!!!(unless sony makes GREAT changes)
    on a “non supported fw” it takes 20 seconds to qa
    tested on 4.65 cobra/non-cobra and 4.60 cfw
    if for some reason it doesnt work on some fw then it requires porting offsets.
    and its for 4.21+ cfw only
    how lucky i am to have syscall 11

    UPDATE #2:(2014-10-13)
    ITS FOR 4.65 ONLY!!!!!


    toolbox 1.02.02
    src for standalone is in there
    changelog for toolbox:
    1,fixed token writing of qa
    2.fsm toggle is in there for you(normal 3.55 diag can be used to exit)

    changelog for standalone:
    1.fixed token writing for qa

    p.s i might make this fw independant in future

    do note that toolbox is for habib 4.65 cobra toggle version and any 4.65 cobra edition



    its now fw independant for 4.21+
    for any reason if this doesnt work with the upcoming releases, porting is required
    tested on 4.65 and 4.60

    A new resigned version of Condorstrike’s screensaver, Solar, has been released by franzes80, although Condorstike patched it in the past to work on any CFW. Seemed to have improved compatibility with DARKNET Cobra 4.65 CFW.

    Sony released Vib Ribbon (in NA, Europe to be launched this month as well), an old original Playstation classic for PS3 and Vita. The original game was never released in North America, being this a debut on the continent.

    For those of you unfamiliar with such game, Vib Ribbon is a rythm-action game, from the developers of PaRappa the Rapper that featured a vibrant retro-like style and turned any music CD into a set of unique levels. It was the first of its kind but the concept was re-used later on in other known games such as Audiosurf.

    Though it is released as a PSOne Classic, the game mantains the capabity of reading external music or audio.

    It is also planned to be released to Playstation 4 as well.

    Now, the reason this is labeled as RUMOR is because it seems Amazon will directly stop selling the Kinect bundle still valued at $500, however, you can still buy it from 3rd party retailers within Amazon. Or you could buy it elsewhere as thia is only an Amazon thing for now, though some believe the little interest will result in an overall stop on the sale of the Kinect bundles worldwide, but this is just speculation for now. However I do want to reiterate this as rumor as Amazon could simply just be out on stock, though how that’s possible so close to the holidays remains a mystery if that was the case.

    The original author notes:

    Microsoft dropped the mandatory $500 price tag for the Xbox One along with the required Kinect back in June, and then started selling the console separately for $399 instead of $499. There were no plans to cancel the Kinect bundle, so this news from Amazon comes as a sort of surprise.

    I think Amazon made the decision to drop that particular Xbox One SKU, but that thought is simply a guess at this point.
