102w ago - Following up on the rumor from last week that a PlayStation Vita Hello World was achieved through a PSP Save Game exploit, today established PSP hacker wololo has confirmed it and stated that a Half-Byte Loader (HBL) is incoming!
To quote: Last week, an exploit on the PS Vita through the PSP emulator was announced by Mamosuke. The exploit was found by Teck4, and, we won't stress it enough, is a PSP exploit that gives us user mode access within the PSP emulator on the Vita. So this is not a Vita exploit per se, but it's still very cool.
Mamosuke confirmed this with a video a few days ago, and today I was able to confirm the exploit myself as shown in the video below (and I must admit that I spent way too much time working on that basic flame effect). The video below shows the exploit running on both a PSP 1000 and the PS Vita.
Here's also a screenshot since there is not autofocus on my stupid camera.
I spent a good amount of time today confirming some of my hopes that it will be possible to run HBL, at least to some extent, with that exploit. It doesn't mean I have...
From the ReadMe File: For those that have multiple external HDDs connected to your PS3 and are using the gameData.pkg (released a few weeks ago) this tool (tweak) may be helpful to you, so you don't have to be swapping USBs in order for the gameDATA app to see your current external HDD as the (1) main ext HDD.
So for those that have been enjoying the latest PSN DUPLEX backup games, but running out of internal HDD space, plus those that have more than one external HDD (and don't wish to be swapping the external HDDs so they can be identified as the (1) USB drive, this will help you.

152w ago - Spanish PlayStation 3 developer nathan_r32_69 has posted a Beta release of PS3 CFW Evilnat today along with details on their BackUp Loader WIP.
To quote, roughly translated via Google:
CFW Evilnat BETA
Good fellow, you know that I decided to make a CFW and investigate, since the programming along with the PS3 is a pretty fun hobby.
"This software is shared with no warranty. Neither I, nor members of PS3SOS liable for any damages to your console. Use with caution."
I have access to the archives of the kernel of the PUP, as I can I start to create the Backup Loader.
Took several days creating this CFW as many already know, only with the disadvantage that do not have Kakarot tool as it gives me errors everywhere, so I'm doing everything manually, and it takes more logically.
I know many will think that I'm doing a CFW own seeing what's online and who are very advanced, I know I could be stupid, but the reason is very easy, if not the major draw, if I get SI Exposing LO.
Comment I did not know for sure if it would get, but I always try. For now its beginnings are already made, the CFW 3.41-Evilnat
The firmware that you create and modify debug options enabled take, I have all minimum. At...
