    There's been an amazing breakthrough on the PSP homebrew scene - an exploit has been found and now pro developers have confirmed it IS POSSIBLE to run homebrew and possibly downgrade ALL FIRMWARES from 2.0>2.80.

    The file "Hello World" is a homebrew application which proves the exploit is real and can be found on noobz's website (see links above).

    To see the exploit in action yourself:

    1) Download the "Hello World" file.
    2) Extract the file to your PHOTO folder on the PSP.

    I've tried this myself on my 2.71 PSP and can confirm it DOES WORK. It's not only a matter of time before homebrew is possible on all firmwares WITHOUT GTA: LIBERTY CITY STORIES.

    I'm really excited myself and can't wait to see what comes of this. [​IMG]

    Why are you that excited? It's only good for the people with >2.7 PSPs, homebrew won't be any faster [​IMG]

    I myself actually want to play with homebrew, and until now people have thought anyone with the latter firmwares were doomed. Now it's definately possible without GTA, and noobz + friends have said "it shouldn't be too hard now, though 2.70+ has tighter security it'll just be done a bit later." Personally I think this is incredible news for the PSP scene and for alot of people it's just breathed life into their PSPs.

    Oh, sorry, I didn't know you didn't have access to homebrew [​IMG]. Well, for the people that will be able to downgrade now, here's something to look forward to: http://digilander.libero.it/calimerosegg/g.../cps2/cps2.html

    Yeah, that's right, PSP has CPS2 emulation [​IMG]. Also, a full-speed GBA emulator is in the works, with some games already running full speed, along with sound.

    Haha, it's okay. The CPS2 emulator looks really nice and so does that GBA one! GBA games on the PSP must look really nice.

    Well, if any firmware will be downgradable I may consider buying a PSP.

    This is great news. My original 1.5 PSP had so many dead pixels I exchanged it and got a PSP with 2.01 firmware, which made it impossible to run homebrew. I finally gave up and upgraded to 2.7 for the Loco Roco demo, then the downgrader came out and I was f'ed. Now I finally have the chance to run homebrew again, since I wasn't dumb enough to upgrade to 2.8.

    why did you upgraded to 2.7 just the Loco Roco demo?
    if you have a 2.01 you could upgrade to 2.50 or 2.60 then downgrade back to 1.5v
    (not a TA-082 (If you do have this PSP version, it may result in a brick).


    the psp 1.5v can play Loco Roco + full version.

    Why not actually read his post, he found out too late and was upgraded already BEFORE the downgrader came out.

    It is obvious that the downgrader is coming with the advent of the tifflib exploit, was only a question of how long.

    I'm sitting on 1.5 but good news none the less, Sony certainly aren't having a good day.

    The PSP is at a very reasonable price. $200 to play movies, music, games and more. The movies are great quality if you convert them to AVC (they're alright quality with normal MP4), and the music is good too. The games are getting much better as well (guilty gear judgement ftw).

    But you're probably one of the people that thinks $499/$599 for a PS3 is too much.

    Last time I heard work on the downgrader will resume at 12PM GMT today, but I'll try and see what the lastest info is right now.

    I've somehow ended up with 2 psps one 1.5 and another 2.7. I've no idea why I upgraded the firmware to 2.7 but it was before the loader came out to run any game. Sony have revised the motherboad on the newer versions of the psp so you can't downgrade, at the moment I think piracy is the only thing keeping the psp alive. Nintendo DS ftw.
