Many Torrent sites go offline...



Stockholm police raided the free-speech focused firm (PRQ) this Monday and took its servers.
Wikileaks and many Torrent sites are now offline as consequence...

Swedish police raided the Stockholm-based web host "PeRiQuito AB", or PRQ, taking four servers and possibly dozens of file-sharing sites -and WikiLeaks- offline.

PRQ is owned by founders of the Pirate Bay. Coincidentally, the PB torrent website also went offline today, however, this was apparently unrelated to the PRQ raid, as it no longer relies on PRQ for hosting.

Coldbird leaves the scene



A Playstation Vita CFW that uses the PSP mini game 'Urbanix' to work has been leaked.

Good and bad news for all Playstation Vita users. The good news is that the PSP Kernel exploit and a CFW for Playstation Vita was leaked some days ago by a "Sam Jordam" guy on Youtube. The bad news is that after this leak happened, Coldbird, one of the main persons behind this project (which wasn’t supposed to be released now), decided to leave the scene.

This CFW allows users to load ISO's, CSO's, PSX games and PSP homebrew on your PS Vita. The game used for this exploit is Urbanix (PSP Mini), so if you want to try this CFW you'd better download it before Sony removes the game from the PSN. This exploit works from firmware 1.67 to 1.80.

If you want more info about this, you can read the Wololo's explanation in the link below....
