PSP fangirls and boys unite! It looks like you can now run homebrew apps on your PSPs that have version 2.00 to 2.80 firmwares installed -- no more downgrading! Apparently it involves a simple viewing of an image file on your mem stick. And for you überfans, you'll probably want to know that according to QJ.net: "This application runs in 'User Mode,' but kernel mode will be achievable on all firmwares except 2.80." We'll give it a spin and report back soon with our findings.

[Thanks, Crome T.]

Update:
Oh yeah, this thing works alright. It works so well ou don't even need to actually load the image on 2.8 -- just scroll down to it, and the thumbnail read takes over the homebrew hack. Nice.
