Who leaked/Decrypted them?
Well given that shuffle2 wrote the fail0verflow articles and loves emulators it was most likely his criminal dumb ass. Or it was vpikhur but he cool, so I wouldnt care. Or it was the Save Wizard asswipes, aka Wayne Hughes Beckett - an old employee of Datel, who have the rom.

Nonsense. Of course Sony would patch those bugs, because otherwise they run into danger that ALL games are playable via backups methods, in case that the exploit maybe will be published some time... And Sony wants to earn MUCH money with PS4 games / licenses, even if PS5 is out for 1-2 years.

So to fix a bug as soon as possible is always better as to know them and not to fix it

sure, in almost 2 years devs only have one exploit chain and is the same to everybody, what a aim... i prefer to believe that they just dont make it public because they dont want to.

and i really dont care about this baby devs that go to twitter to cry like another teen.

They will most probably release the exploit after the final exclusives are released of The Last of Us Part 2 PS4 ..That's gonna be the last Big title released on the PS4 I suspect... So I would imagine you could expect a exploit release sometime in March of 2020.

Best Regards,

Nothing will be released after TLOU2 before PS5 arrives. I mean no more big releases before PS5. So possible KEX didn't arrives before next X-mas. Or it already will be released in 2020, but year is long... IMHO SONY already knew about all holes in the sw, and didn't patch it, thus new kex not released. Maybe they pay to the devs, or already hire them to show & find holes in system sw...

By the way, I found this fake stuff (I think, because there's no manual to install that format software) by Sony.

I have a PS4 Pro Japan version, but everywhere I searched at the internet, they only show like Plenty of PS2 games on PS Now. If this is bogus, I'll be disappointed.
