    vosman brings you version v2.1 of his PSP plugin, which lets your homebrew enabled PSP access PSN and play online.

    This is an update of one of the greatest PSP plugins ever made.
    Problems fixed in this update (2.1):
    You dont need to change the settings in the Recovery Menu (fixed error 0×20000001, no recovery setting (fake region) required).M33 update must be disabled.
    Changes on 2.0:
    * supports automatic login (auto-sign in supported).
    * disable the menu hotkey.
    * using the new system function modification method is no longer a simple string that changes PSNabler.

    Problems with the first edition: (Translated)
    * Dynasty Warriors download joint raid with the letter can not, network warfare can not, it is because the game has additional protection, need money to buy a license key, and then activated in the PSN account management, similar to the game There are seals 3, Phantasy Star 2 and so on.
    * PSN most shops can not download the DEMO game, because these games to the machine authentication, game certification will appear (80109d80) errors, unexplained, it may try to use the MEDIA GO certified machine, or to rise to 6.20 official firmware, certification good lower and lower back.
    * Some of the unit is a mess of connection error, I do not know the reason why I never appeared. PSP-2000 with the Japanese version of the machine, the system 5.50GEN-D3 final version, 5.00M33-6 also tried, no problem.

    1)Add following line into vsh.txt/game.txt
    ms0:/seplugins/psnfucker.prx 1
    2)Go to Recovery Menu and enable this plugin (if it isnt already enabled)

    Today GeoHot brings more updates from his blog and twitter about his PS3 work, to quote:

    Today I verified my theories about running the isolated SPUs as crypto engines. I believe that defeats the last technical argument against the PS3 being hacked.

    In OtherOS, all 7 SPUs are idle. You can command an SPU(which I’ll leave as an exercise to the reader) to load metldr, from that load the loader of your choice, and from that decrypt what you choose, everything from pkgs to selfs. Including those from future versions.

    The PPU is higher on the control chain then the SPUs. Even if checks were to be added to, for example, verify the hypervisor before decrypting the kernel, with clever memory mappings you can hide your modified hypervisor.

    Ah, but you still didn’t get the Cell root key. And I/we never will. But it doesn’t matter. For example, we don’t have either the iPhone or PSP “root key”. But I don’t think anyone doubts the hackedness of those systems.

    I wonder if any systems out there are actually secure?

    And from his twitter:

    Today I validated my theories about running the isolated SPUs on the PS3 as crypto engines. The PS3 is 100% hacked. So where my homebrew at?

    Stay tuned for more updates.

    A hacker by the name “Dashhacker” has claimed to fully reverse the PSP to PS3 connection (remote play),broke the  authentication system , and promises a API very soon. Hackers such as RichDevX & Kid101Skater have attempted this in the past but were unable to do so fully.

    So what does this allow us to do? We will now be able to access the PS3 from ANYWHERE besides the PSP such as PC, iPhone, PDA via internet!

    A very interesting discovery and cool feature many of us can take advantage of.

    We will give you updates on this latest project when they become available.
