217w ago - Russian PSP hacker mc707 has released EBOOT Patcher v1.0 for Sony's PlayStation Portable, which will allow you to play 5.55 / 6.00 games on 5.00 M33-6, 5.03 MHU, 5.03 GEN-A and other Custom Firmware.
1. Remove with UMDGen from the image game EBOOT.BIN loader and export the File list (menu File> File list> Export)
2. Decrypt loader EBOOT.BIN
3. Apply the patcher to decrypted loader EBOOT.BIN (check that this is decrypted - the header ELF).
4. Pack the boot back into the image (with UMDGen replace the boot EBOOT.BIN in the image).
5. Import File list back, agreeing with the question of the desire zaforsit file locations in the image! (this item is required for many games, in particular DiRT 2 without this procedure falls into a black screen)

227w ago - This seems like intresting stuff going on.. LEU-Loader OtherOS v1.0 for PlayStation 3 Linux.
To quote, roughly translated: Some time ago we started this project, known as LEU (Launcher Emulators for USB), as you know I care for every detail to make it pleasant and comfortable to use.
To start LEU Linux as it is you need a BootLoader.. usually used in terminal mode type which makes text more compliacado use.
In our case this is, graphics adapters to the environment we want to LEU to reach wider audience and that people lose that fear of the word Linux.
BootLoader has very interesting things like:
• Power-Track Initiative SixAxis
• Recognizes LEUs icon which will be installed (USB)
• Recognizes disc, marking an installation disk icon
• Recognizes HDD with Linux installation
• And finally we have a very cool key indicators from the new XMB that is created from the code Petitboot.
The video that shows how the LEU Loader is being used in conjunction with RAW iSO.
To quote: The Homebrew Channel (HBC) was designed to be used with the Homebrew SDK aka devkitPro. So any files you compile with devkitPro should load OK via the HBC.
If you try to load a file that was compiled with the Nintendo SDK however you will get an error that "This is not a valid Wii application". This is because the Homebrew Channel retrieves the load addresses for each ELF program segment from the Physical Address field, and in Nintendo SDK files this field is set to zero.
Hopefully the HBC guys will fix this in the next release, making the HBC more compatible. In the meantime you can use this little tool I made to patch your ELF file. It copies the values from the Virtual Address field into the Physical Address field for each program segment in your ELF file.
