Is De Rebus Antiquis (Xerub's iBoot Exploit) covered?

Back on May 2018 xerub has posted a writeup called "De Rebus Antiquis" of what is pretty much an old iBoot exploit. While his writeup is very good and easily understandable, I'd love to see your take on it, maybe some experiments too. Is it covered in any volume/update/article?

I don't think I can add much to his excellent work (which I have also enjoyed and proved instrumental to me). Xerub's work, including this exploit, is splattered all over Volume II (and he gets a well deserved acknowledgment).

Guess I will wait for volume II then. Also, do you think there will still be a hardcover? I know the issues with printing that many pages/color/paper type et all, I am just curious.

There will be, but either in 3 separate volumes or a binder format. It's simply impossible to fit 1600 pages (which will weigh over 3kg!) in a single book.

Understandable. I think the binder is a good idea tho. I'd like to be able to easily add pages if need-be.
