After years of acting as the mortal enemy of PSP users the world over, Network Update is finally giving back to the community with this latest hack, which allows you to use the nefarious bit of software to update your homebrew-happy Dark_Alex firmware. Of course, to pull it off you'll have to install a plugin from Xandu and Team 280, which involves fiddling with your BIOS and possibly bricking your system, and apparently the plugin is only working with about 2/3 of users so far, but we deem those risks a small price to pay for the sort of moral triumph involved in this hack of hacks.
