First PSP firmware tricker to go back to 1.0 and up to 2.0 released
I just saw on PSPHacks that the first PSP firmware hack that lets you go back to 1.0 from 1.5 has been released.
I tried it out and, lo and behold, my 1.5 PSP can be tricked into thinking it's a 1.0, 1.51, 1.52 or 2.0. (The very first version of the app, which I'd installed a few days ago, could only trick the PSP into 1.51 and 1.52.) This is a definite victory for the homebrew crowd and will probably mean that Phillip Torrone will start buying PSP games again :)
I wish I had more time at the moment to play with my new toy and hack out some examples in Lua or something (Flash would be so amazing on this thing -- that screen, my goodness what a screen) but I just found myself in the middle of setting up and leading a new Flex/CF team on a (really neat) project with quite a pressing deadline. Still, what's the half-hour after midnight for, if not for hacking a little PSP and perhaps playing a round of Ridge Racer?Sleep, you say? Bah humbug! I'll sleep when my pixels are dead... :)
