 here’s the 2nd interview with Total_Noob 🙂

After the big news with the kernel mode exploit in the OFW 6.38, gave Total_Noob me also the opportunity to conduct a short interview with him. In the interview he has given us once again surprised to see Especially the questions and answers in red!

***Interview

You’re 15, right? When did you birthday? 

  One day in January.

What started you on the with the PSP? 

  My first plugin was hold music. After some time came DayView,  UltimateVSH Menu, XMB Icon Manager and dozens of other plugins,  I have always been interested in patching / Hooking.

 From what did you dare to something like a HEN? 

  Prior to the announcement from 6.20 TN-A I could not even reverse correctly.  That is, I could only understand and   reverse control system during development.

 How long did it take (see Incl. Kmod Xploit) the HEN to make up for release on 12/24/2010? 

 As of October, I had worked all weekend on it.

What was your first thought on the PRO HEN? 

 Nice, ISO loader:)

 How do you stand on the PRO CFW, Especially for 6.20er version? 

  For me, no matter, but alas I see my features in there ….

 Is the PRO CFW from your point of view and from stolen code ? 

  I was angry that no one had mentioned PRO – that was the kernel exploit to me.

 What was your first thought to the TN-D Permanent? 

  Nice, I will try it:) 10 minutes later – damn bricked.

 What was it with the Bricken your PSP?  (Please describe in detail how it bricked what you had done before, etc.) 

  I found the Perma-Patch **** and wanted to restore vshmain. No idea why,  but I could not turn PSPgo, and recovery.prx I could not access.

 What is (Sold, in the trash, etc.) with your old Go 

  It is with dust in the closet xD

 Why a new Go? 

  I think the PSPgo very practical and image quality is umpteen times better.

 Do you have other than the PSP’s new Go? 

  Yop, PSP-1000 and PSP-2000, all at 6:38 OFW.

  Starting when you’ve been looking for a 6:37 + Kmod Xploit? 

   When I got my new PSP Go with firmware 6.38.

   How long did it take? 

    Ca. a week oh, btw, I’m not one, I 2 Kxploits . 

  Why are you on OFW 6:38? Can you downgrade? 

   Clear i can downgrade, but since i’m at 6.38 i can make a CFW/HEN for it :D

  Will you make another more detailed video clips on the new HEN? 

    Why should I? Is anyway not released. Maybe if 6:38 TN-A 100% complete..

  Are you a beta tester or help in coding HEN? 

    Yes, Hackman and Vegetano1. Therefore,  TN-E 6:20 was a bit buggy at that time because they had tested it enough xD

  

   As you can see it has done it again and even Total_Noob 2 kernel mode exploits  found in the current Sony OFW. Besides the thing with the PlayStation Network will now add the problems too.

TOTAL_NOOB, THANKS FOR YOUR TIME . LET’S START WITH THE BASICS, CAN YOU QUICKLY INTRODUCE YOURSELF ?

Total_Noob: My name is Andy, I’m a fifteen years old student. I came to the scene sometime in 2008

WHEN DID YOU GET YOUR FIRST PSP ?

Total_Noob: I got my first PSP phat when I was 13. A present from my parents on my birthday. Soon, my cousin hacked my PSP and I had CFW 3.40 OE-A. I really enjoyed my homebrews.

SO, YOU WERE INTO HACKS FROM THE START…WHEN DID YOU JOIN THE SCENE AS A “DEV”, WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CONTRIBUTION?

Total_Noob: Hm…initially I joined QJ.net. My first plugin was MusicHold, maybe some people will remember it: It allows you to press right and left trigger, while your PSP is in hold mode. Torch, the developer of Hold+ added this feature to his awesome plugin.

WAS THERE A HACK OR A HACKER ON THE PSP THAT REALLY IMPRESSED YOU ?

Total_Noob: The hack wich impressed me (and still impresses me) is the Pandora battery. My cousin downgraded my PSP with that and it was just like magic . Every developer who worked on this project impressed me

LET’S MOVE ON TO YOUR WORK ON THE KERNEL EXPLOIT. SO… TO PUT THINGS SIMPLY, HOW DID YOU FIND THIS EXPLOIT?

Total_Noob: 2 years ago ( or one ? ), Yoshihiro gave me a hint about a vulnerability in utility.prx. I was a noob and at first I didn’t understand where the Kernel Exploit was. In August 2010, I was actively looking for a Kernel Exploit and I stumbled upon a function in utility.prx wich was calling a buggy power function with k1 shifted. At that point I remembered that Yoshihiro had told me about this
wololo: So from then you started working on a Hen….

Total_Noob: yes.

HOW LONG DO YOU THINK YOU SPENT IN TOTAL WORKING ON THE EXPLOIT + THE HEN ?

Total_Noob: Veeeeeeery much. Since October 2010 till now
wololo: do you have an idea how many hours you spent?
Total_Noob: Well, I worked every weekend on the HEN, so… thousands of hours maybe? Maybe that’s a bit exaggerated…but definitely hundreds of hours.

ARE YOU STILL WORKING ON TN HEN ?

Total_Noob: Of course I am! I’m a bit sad, ’cause people think I left the scene. I invented maaany new features and I promise, you guys will be excited once you know what the features are
wololo: Oh, so TN-E is coming…can you reveal a few features you are working on ?
Total_Noob: Well….I think TN-E is ready for release. But maybe my brain will tinker some new features . OK, here are a few:

– Added OSK Character Limit Increase (the Internet Browser OSK only supports 512 characters. This patch allows you to use 1518 characters).
– Added password control at startup.
– Added UMD patch (umd4hombrew is not necessary anymore).
– Added usbdevice.
– Added PSX multi-disc support.
– Added possibility to hide hen eboot in the game menu.
– Added version.txt display.
– Added more functions to kubridge library.
– Added a surprise
Total_Noob: The suprise will hew you guys down
wololo: hehe, can’t wait

WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE WHEN YOU WORKED ON TN HEN ?

Total_Noob: There was no huge difficulty. Fix bugs, add patches for stability, fix bugs again… the most difficult part was probably to fix bugs I couldn’t reproduce myself.
wololo: ah, good point, so how did you proceed to fix those?
Total_Noob: Trial and error, send new versions regularly to the testers. Sometimes it took me a whole weekend to fix a bug! Like the 32gb Memory Stick problem (Homebrew execution crash)

wololo: Thanks, moving on to your “future” projects…

LOTS OF PEOPLE ARE EXPECTING A HEN FOR 6.37 (AND NOW I SEE THAT 6.38 IS OUT)…DO YOU HAVE AN ANSWER FOR THEM?

Total_Noob: Yesterday I saw a new function wich has a vulnerability, but it is probably not exploitable. I’ll investigate more after the TN-E release.
wololo: Ok, not sure yet if this is really exploitable, right? But at least it means some vulnerabilities are still around.
Total_Noob: Exactly.

WHAT KIND OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BECOME CONSOLE “HACKERS”?

Total_Noob: Learn with practice, do NOT start with the hardest thing, such as a CFW.

I ASSUME YOU KNOW THAT GEOHOT WAS RECENTLY THREATENED BY SONY (THEY SETTLED THE CASE EARLIER THIS MONTH). ARE YOU AFRAID THE SAME KIND OF STUFF MIGHT HAPPEN TO PSP HACKERS?

Total_Noob: No, I’m not afraid. They care much more about the PS3

ARE YOU GETTING AN NGP?

Total_Noob: If I’ve got enough money, I’ll buy it for sure
wololo: hehe, any games you’re hoping to play on that new console?
Total_Noob: Assassin’s Creed! or God Of War
wololo: the best part of Assassin’s Creed is Jade Raymond
Total_Noob: Haha, yes she looks nice

THANKS A LOT FOR YOUR ANSWERS , ANY FINAL WORD?

Total_Noob: Yes, I am developing with my friend HacKmaN.
wololo: Say hi to him, and thanks a lot for your time, Total_Noob!
