Just when most figured the previous OFW revision would be the last System Software update for PlayStation Vita, Sony decided to release PS Vita Firmware 3.68 which likely patches holes preventing fun things like jailbreaking, running exploits and homebrew on the handheld console. :sneaky:

Those interested can check it out below, and as usual it's advisable NOT to update for most sceners who didn't get a PS Vita or PlayStation TV to use it only for vanilla mainstream retail games and applications.

Thanks to haznpapo for the news tip, and as always when Sony updates their official site and details come in from PlayStation Vita scene developers we'll update this article with what's changed or patched in the PS Vita System Software 3.68 update.

Main features in system software update version 3.68

  • This system software update improves the quality of the system performance.

Code:
uint32_t get_sysmem_base() {
  uint32_t info[0x12];

  // 1) Call a function that writes sp to kernel stack
  sceAppMgrLoadExec(NULL, NULL, NULL);

  // 2) Leak kernel stack
  sceMotionDevGetEvaInfo(info);

  // 3) Get sysmem base
  uint32_t sysmem_addr = info[0] & 0xFFFFF000;
 
  return sysmem_addr;
}

TheFlow is a really persistent guy. I wouldn't be surprised if he dropped a release of a newer exploit sooner than that, but only if kit was patched in the new FW. Don't want to burn good exploits before they are patched (or the life of a system is over).

I swear man someone at Sony really watches the internet 24/7 for exploits in their firmwares to instantly patch them. There is NO WAY this can be a coincidence. I don't believe in coincidences.

let's wait to see if the community tries to see if you can jailbreak 3.68.

For the moment I am left with my henkaku 3.65

This is why The Flow is going to wait at until the end of the year to release the exploit. Companies are doing anything in their power to stop Homebrew. Look how Nintendo released a system update 1 year later. For a system they no longer "support".

As an educated guess, it will stop PSN access and anyone who tries and spoofs 3.68 but doesn't have the proper key will be put on a to be banned list for later. But I'm interested has anyone set their spoof version to 3.68 and connected to PSN?
