To quote (via Wololo): You might remember the psp2ps3 tools, and all the excitement a few weeks ago around a recent hack breakthrough that allows people to run psp isos (and, potentially, homebrews) on a hacked PS3, by "camouflaging" the game inside a PSP Mini.
Although people believed this trick was reserved to PS3s running a Custom Firmware, this might become an incorrect statement very soon
I was contacted by scene member CapetLeVrai who apparently found a way to run those PSP ISOs on a non hacked PS3 running the latest official firmware 4.41.
The current technique will probably not blow your mind for now, as it requires you to own both a hacked and a non hacked PS3, but it could open huge opportunities in the near future if the right people decide to look into that. The basic idea is that after being installed...
Again this is not for the PSP but it a PSP emulator, now what makes this stand apart, is that it is open source but it is also multi platform, and by multi platform i mean almost anything out there can run from apple devices to android (yes phones can run it as well) to Windows, to Linux.
There is one slight drawback though it is still in early development and only plays a certain amount of games not full fledged (PPSSPP Compatibility List) but homebrew and certain low end graphical games, however, this does show promise. Read more about this in the quote below.
To quote: PPSSPP is an open source project, licensed under the GPL 2.0. Anyone is welcome to contribute their improvements to the code, and the hope is that over time this will resolve the compatibility problem.
136w 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."
