Updating psp through ps3 dating politics religion
As of September 24, an exploit in libtiff has allowed people to execute unsigned code, using the Image Browser.
October 3rd, 2005 marked the release of the firmware V2.01, this firmware corrects the libtiff issue and thus does not allow the downgrading of the system or use of any homebrew applications.
The downgrader has a high success rate, and returns the PSP to the homebrew-friendly 1.50 firmware.
The exploit is in very early beta stages, and seems to have a less than 50% success rate (with the failures resulting in bricked PSPs).
Downgrading to 1.00 can open the door to totally custom firmwares, thereby allowing people to have full control over the PSP, while at the same time allowing people to "emulate" newer versions of the firmware, to retain compatibility with newer games.
Most importantly, the Play Station 3's 2.50 firmware update finally allows for background downloading on the system, bringing it in line with the Xbox 360.
Now, instead of letting your console idle while downloading game demos or videos, you can turn the console off, walk away and the system will continue its task without you.
