    French Hackers and PSPGen have announced that fresh off the bat, after the Gripshift exploit was found in the Euro version of the game, they have developed a Homebrew enabler. Not quite a custom firmware, and not for public release, but this surely is only going to set the scene ablaze as developers race to find more exploits and achieve fame and notoriety. Straight from PSPGen themselves (and run through Google Translator)

    Source

    Here's hoping for a second exploit!

    Wow, so something good did come from the Gripshift exploit! Neato.

    The bit about it not flashing the system is interesting. Reminds me of FlashMe-Stealth, in a way...

    From an earlier report they stated that this exploit should work across all firmwares (all the way down to 1.0) and across all motherboards. I guess only RW testing will prove it true.

    from what i understand using this is kinda like installing m33 cfw, but instead of installing in the usual firmware memory(which can brick your psp) you "install" it in your RAM(which won't brick a psp, but will revert to ofw after a reboot).

    this does mean more data from TA-088v3 and TA-090v2 can be obtained, since it will now be possible to run a full-function cfw(although you can't install one yet)

    Well here's a turn up for the books...seems that Miriam = ketchup = HelldashX, who apparently used code stolen from DaX and reverse engineering of the M33 code to produce this. Needless to say DaX is a little annoyed.
