Sony Updates PSP System Software to v6.35, Media Go Updates
Sony's VP of Network Operations Americas Eric Lempel has announced today that PSP System Software update version 6.35 is now available which supports Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity along with Media Go updates incoming.
For those unaware, according to http://wololo.net/wagic/2010/11/24/6-35-is-out-blocks-the-hot-shots-golf-exploit/ this update patches the Hot Shots Golf exploit.
To quote: The next PSP (PlayStation Portable) system software update (v6.35) is coming soon.
This is a minor update that prepares your PSP system for the upcoming launch of "Music Unlimited powered by http://www.qriocity.com/us/en/" - a new, cloud-based, digital music service from Sony that will give music lovers access to millions of songs stored and synchronized through the cloud.
A new icon for the service will be added to PSP's XMB (XrossMediaBar) under the "Music" category. You can read more about Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity http://www.qriocity.com/us/en/how-it-works.html, and we'll report back when a launch date is announced.
In addition, the http://mediago.sony.com/enu/introduction/ for managing PSP downloadable content on your PC will be updated with enhancements to the user interface and advanced photo editing tools.
From Wololo.net: "Total_Noob told me a few days ago that the Hen was very close to completion, and he confirmed that in a post on the german site pspking.de. He announced that his Hen now has 98% homebrew compatibility, a VSH menu (probably similar to what we have on the m33 and Gen CFW), and a “NanGuard” feature, which will prevent people from stupidly writing stuff to the flash.

Last time I spoke to Total_Noob, there were still a few thing to finalize and a few bugs to fix, such as unlocking the 32MB of extended memory on models that support it.
Note that although Total_Noob announced that his Hen will not have ISO support, several teams are already actively working on game Loaders (such as Open Idea Iso Loader by dridri, which supposedly loads ISO/CSO and PSX games). Such loaders will probably be made compatible with firmwares 6.xx with little effort, and I am more and more confident that it will be a matter of days after the release of the Hen before things such as iso loading or plugin support are made available.
A Hen (Homebrew ENabler) is a tool that allows to run unsigned software (homebrews) on a PSP directly from the XMB. By default a HEn only allows homebrew loading (even though Total_Noob pushed the limits a bit further by adding features such as a VSH menu) and is not very different in its goals from a tool such as HBL. But unlike HBL, it relies on a Kernel exploit, which basically gives access to all the features of the PSP. It allows users to get full control of their psp, for better or for worse."
