PSP-3000 finally hacked

Team Typhoon finally conquered the new PSP, opening it to homebrew, customization and piracy.

This is a demo of the 5.03 firmware running the tiff exploit and booting into a HEN environment on a PSP 2003 (3000 Support also) on 5.03 Official Firmware. This proves that the code survives a reboot and the system software and MAC address can be changed. This is something that only can be done with a kernel exploit. A video launching homebrew will be posted later.

You’ll have to wait, though: packaging it up for public consumption is the next step.

    I’ve already had a card slot fail in one of my Dingo A320s, so if the Chinese grey market doesn’t keep me fixed then it’s a hacked PSP all the way for my emulation satisfaction.

    Keep up the great work!
