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."
212w ago - Just over a month ago it was reported that Sony's PSP Go console was hacked... but the exploit was not released at the time in hopes that it could be useful to developers.
Today FreePlay has released the Mercury PSP exploit as it was patched by Sony in PSP Firmware 6.20 rendering it useless, however, those who haven't updated yet to PSP Firmware 6.20 can give it a try below along with the source code courtesy of Mathieulh!
To quote: "You need firmware 6.10 or below, and the game of course. The exploit was patched in 6.20, and the PSN version of the game was updated to require 6.20.
The eLoader isn't happening at all unless I can get a 6.10 firmware dump from the Go, which this exploit can't do. It would probably be best to wait until an XMB-based exploit comes along... game-based exploits are too easy to block."
