PSP v2.60 firmware hacked for homebrew!

Fanjita, the legendary PSP firmware hacker, has done it again – he’s released a homebrew hack for the latest version of the PSP firmware.

I’m sure you’re all familiar with the situation, but in case you’re not: Sony have decided that only software they have “licenced” (in return for a payment) should be able to be run on PSPs.

The grassroots PSP hacker community has been playing a cat and mouse game with Sony – finding ways to beat their system, resulting in Sony releasing a new version of the firmware that plugs the whole.

With a hacked system, it means you can run games and other ‘homebrew’ applications written by the community.

It’s an interesting argument – having purchased the hardware, why shouldn’t you be able to run whatever you want on it?

Anyway, Sony’s onto a looser with this – I just hope they decide not to pursue this policy, but my guess is that we’ll see a “security fix” v2.61 release very soon.

    As you can see, Fanjita didn’t create that downgrader. He just said that the is a real downgrader which seems to work, and that he hasn’t tested it (which implicites that he didn’t develop it).
