Sony's latest hardware revision, the PSP-3000 aka PSP Brite
, is doing well in standing up against pirates, hackers and their tools. According to PSP World
, previous exploits which allow access to kernel memory and firmware are now patched up -- no way getting in there now.
Infamous hackers like Dark Alex
have yet to find a way through the PSP Brite's new specs. Other hackers are getting frustrated; take Royginald
from the Philippines who has swapped in the PSP Slim's CPU into a PSP Brite while keeping the screen and case intact. All that to run custom firmware and homebrew which doesn't even run properly because of signal output differences
. We wonder if Sony has finally found a solution to its custom firmware woes.
