First (real) 2.0 PSP homebrew game!

I was sick throughout the weekend, therefore I couldn’t be up to date with what was happening with the Sony PSP, but, apparently, the 2.0 firmware has been cracked.

It all started with rumors (well, one of them eventually turned out to be true), and then came the typical “Hello World” program, and finally the first game was released: Pong.

This is all great but the program seems to run on an image. Unless I’m mistaken there are two formats in which you can place code in: tifs and pngs. I’m not sure until what or if there are any limitations but if that happens to be part of the image encoding itself it will be more difficult for Sony to “protect” it’s console from the PSP homebrew scene.

The bad news is that everyone that was/is working on a down-grader no longer has a point in continuing to do so, and no more free Wifi for your neighbours (bad news for them). The good news is that we won’t have to rely upon homebrew browsers anymore and we can finally use our PSPs within a secure wireless network.

The next few days will probably be really interesting for the PSP owners, stay tuned!

To download the program, right click “Visit Site” and save it to your hard-drive. Then place it in your PHOTO folder on your PSP and execute it, that’s it.
