Yes, we know it’s a running joke for Play Station gamers everywhere, but at least something is being done, right?And I gather, this might be in response to that whole DDo S thing that happened recently, which brought PSN down.turning the psp into a multifunction device might not be everyone's idea of a good thing, but sony did say the psp was going to be different and should not be compared to nintendo's gba or ds.the list of new functionality being touted seems to put the psp in direct competition with the gizmondo and zodiac machines, and takes the handheld beyond just being a games machine.of this guide, about how to downgrade your PSP and then upgrade to a custom firmware.For those of you who’ve just tuned in; a custom firmware is one that is written by hackers (or crackers, depending on your point of view), which gives you all the possibilities of the official firmware, but also enables the use of homebrew.So if you haven’t got one of those, but you’ve got firmware 3.50 or below, use part one.All PSPs can be cracked, disregarding current firmware.
It is a minor update released more than three years after the release of the previous version 6.60 in 2011.
sony admits that it is sony code that has been released, but that the code was not in a finished form and that the release was not planned or condoned.
so it looks like the psp feature upgrade is actually going to happen, just not yet.
It uses the Xross Media Bar (XMB) as its user interface, similar to the Play Station 3 console.
Updates add new functionality as well as security patches to prevent homebrew applications and plugins from being executed on the system.
