155w ago - Just under a month ago Sony released PSP System Software v6.35, and over the weekend some1 via wololo (linked abaove) has released a HBL Homebrew Loader for PSP Firmware 6.35 via the Minna no Sukkiri Demo Exploit by Jeerum.
To quote: some1 had been working with m0skit0 and JJS on porting HBL to this exploit. It is unfortunate that the release has to happen like this, but some1 had to release his files much earlier than expected because of the leak.
You can download HBL for the sukkiri exploit here. I haven't tested it yet, and we will be working on a "proper" release in the days to come. If everything goes well, we will probably drop support for the previous exploits (the golf ones at least), in favor of this one.
This release makes HBL work on 6.35, in theory (haven't tested yet)"
165w ago - This weekend Total_Noob at PSPKing.de (linked above) has shared news of a PSP Firmware 6.20 kernel exploit recently found via reverse-engineering Rebootex alongside a few video demos including a peek at TN (HEN).
To quote, roughly translated:
"As the title suggests, I work at 6:20 TN (HEN). I have long found a kernel exploit, but never made it. Yesterday I started with programming and I come forward very quickly."
Those interested can check out the video footage below!
"I told you, it's not fake, here is a video where I show you my spoofed version and mac. when the screen is flashing purple, it means systemctrl is loaded. This time I use a better cam xD."
"The screen lights at the end of purple, which means that Rebootex was executed."
201w ago - Update: Flyer has found a savedata crash exploit (pictured below) that may also work with PSP Firmware v6.20.
A few months after the Mercury PSP Exploit was released comes the next discovery, specifically pspjoke of LAN.st (linked above) has found a new PSP exploit that should work on PSP Firmware 6.20 and the PSPgo!
While it isn't released yet, SilverSpring is examining it and if possible stated he would make an exploit from the game save crash... which may even be useful for eLoader fans.
To quote: "If this looks exploitable I would like to speak to one of the pros via pm to further the development of the exploit and to learn more about exploits in general.
The overrun string was just a ton of A's or 0x61.. as you see I managed to overwrite ra so I think I'm on to something.. changed to 0xEE and it is for sure."
To quote: 5.03 ChickHEN Homebrew Enabler - Team Typhoon (Article by Granite) So comes the release of the highly anticipated ChickHEN homebrew enabler by Team Typhoon.
After 1800 Lines of code, 4 weeks of stressful developing and countless amounts of tests the dawn of a new homebrew era for all the 3000, 2000 and 1000 users is on the horizon. What was said to be impossible by many is now a reality, all styles homebrew are now running on the "unhackable" T88v3 and TA-090 motherboards rolled out by Sony.
What does the ChickHEN do?
ChickHEN as a Homebrew Enabler that allows the execution of homebrew via the PSP XMB. Running via a vulnerability in the lib TIFF the launcher takes advantage of the system by performing a kernel exploit and rebooting into a homebrew enabled enviroment.
The ChickHEN remains active until the PSP is fully reset in which case official firmware loads from the flash....
