PSP News

Been a while since you dusted off the old PSP? Perhaps you’re one of the die-hards that just won’t put it down. In either situation a coder named Acid_Snake has developed this little beauty to help ensure your PSP will last for years to come.

Included in this software you’ll find several different testing applications. There is an analog tester, a pixel fixer, a file sweeper that helps clear space in the NAND, and even a directory checker to make sure everything is in the right place.  If you are worried about getting back into the PSP scene or can’t be bothered remembering how badly you goofed up your NAND, catch the download link below from our downloads section.

Here’s a program that Brewology user crait created called TeleCommand that allows a user to control their PC over the internet using POP instead of SSH, VPN, Telnet, or anything like that. The only thing that needs to be installed is the host program on the PC and that’s it. Connection is a breeze and the program works wonderfully. You can run programs, open directories, or send commands. Supposedly, you can even open programs with arguments.

Right now, he has it specially configured and secured for use on his personal computer, but he has stated that he will be releasing some code so everyone can get it set up when it’s safer and faster. It’s pretty awesome that he has this simple application set up to remotely control your PC using web-enabled devices like the PS Vita!

PSVita Half byteloader

Today I updated my Vita to 1.60 and could confirm that HBL for the Vita still works as of firmware 1.60 (assuming the game itself hasn’t been patched). A few days ago, Teck4 had confirmed on Twitter that his exploit still works on the most recent firmware.

One thing I noticed is that the Vita, after being updated to 1.60, made me update the Content Manager Assistant on the PC as well (is it because my PC was connected to the internet? Maybe, although it i also possible that the OS on the Vita itself has a minimum version requirement for the PC client, and refuses to connect if that number is too low… something that can probably be bypassed at some point). It’s good to note though that Virtuous Flame’s OpenCMA still works fine and allows me to copy files while not being connected to the internet.

As far as the release is concerned, it will happen in a few days, for now all the info I can share is on this page. Stay tuned!

Coinciding with the release of PS3 Firmware 3.70, Sony has released a minor update for PSP — PSP Firmware 6.60 — which is said to patch some1′s 6.39 kernel exploit … and that’s about it.

The good news is, if you’re following neur0n, you’ll see he’s already made some progress — new tags, new keys … he even posted this picture:

Alright, everyone. We are on day 6 of this PSN outage and many people are hating it while fanboys of other consoles are rubbing it into PS3 owner’s faces. Do you guys have a PS3? What have you been using it for during this near-week of PSN-less features? No Home, no PSN Store, no online play, no Netflix… etc. Have you guys picked up any games to take up your time?

CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE FORUMS!

On another note, Xbox Live is now unbanning consoles! On top of that, it is kinda suspicious that they offered a ‘free Live weekend’ during the weekend the PSN is down. Of course, the 360 was planned to have this for a while, but it makes you think, right?

Sony pushed out PSP firmware 6.38 just a bit ago and guess what! You can still run signed homebrew! Of course, no one know if using the downgrader will work from this new firmware or if the recently-released custom firmwares will install from this firmware, so take caution! All Sony says that they released in this update was a “Security patch to add stability.”
Of course, that’s code for, “We’re trying to combat homebrew!”
To download and install this firmware on your PSP, you just need to go to Network Update on your PSP’s XMB and install it from there.

Oh, wow! This is no April Fool’s Day joke! Just hours ago, a user of Microsoft’s developers forum by the name of Kit3Katz has found and released information on a folder on Microsoft’s XBox website’s server! All that was in the directory an few corrupted images, two green banner images, and this image!
I just checked 20 minutes ago, and the fie was still on their servers and able to be accessed at this link:

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/Shell/Apr/images/PRN/001.PNG

Unfortunately, the directory has been removed and all that remains are a few back ups! But here is the new XBox 720!! No files in that directory contained any information on specs, but it is widely believed that it will be announced and released alongside Windows 8 as it contains many cross-platform system structures.
Looking at the games depicted, there is definitely Gears of War, but the other three games are yet to be identified. Also, notice that no disc tray is visible! Perhaps Microsoft is going to go the way of the PSP Go!? Or will it take on the challenge presented by its new slogan of, “Become a legend” ??

PSPJust yesterday, RoxFox64 met up with Hellcat and Davee who were in the final stages of making their new, signed downgrader. As it turned out, he had upgraded to 6.35 from 6.20 recently and needed to use it, imagine that coincidence! After waiting for Davee to give him the compiled version to test, he was more than happy to see that it had worked 100%!
With this downgrader, it will be very simple, and very safe, to downgrade from 6.35 to the 6.20 firmware!

From the ReadMe:

[What does it technically do?]
It uses the utility/power exploit to gain kernel access and reboots into the updater with a special PRX running. This PRX uses the pspdecrypt functionality to decrypt the updater PRX when needed. This allows the updater to boot in the newer firmwares.
So, in order to use this you need the official update for OFW 6.20 (SPECIFIC TO YOUR MODEL)
Installation is very simple:
Place the 6.20 update in X:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE/
and extract the downgrader’s folder into X:/PSP/GAME/

Why OFW 6.20?
Currently, 6.20 is the latest firmware we have full Kernel access on. This is the firmware you’ll find the absolute most functionality on along with HEN TN-C.

Yes, you read that correctly. All firmwares ever released or to be released by Sony will have homebrew. Why? Well, the company has no way of making their gaming machines know what is homebrew and what is officially released programs.

How is this possible? Well, the makers of both products have added a secret encryption to everything that is ran on either machine. Without this encryption, your programs will not run. But, that secret key has been released for both of the devices and this year, we will see both devices explode with homebrew and Sony won’t be able to do anything about it!

Thanks Geohot, Team fail0verflow, Mathiuel, and the others! :D We love you and truly appreciate everything you’ve done for us!
