It's deja vu time. Another firmware update which seemingly does nothing. Firmware 2.80 has, according to PlayStation Network's Eric Lempel, a single feature.

Some people are wary that the use of downgraders will leave their systems essentially useless, or "bricked" as they say. The process isn't the simplest to follow, and copying over system files is always a dangerous thing. However, the homebrew team at N00bz have created the "safest" downgrader yet. ...

After an extended absence, it appears that the programmer Booster is back. There was a scare back in August, when Sony approached the coder with some legal action.

Those with homebrew on their PSPs have enjoyed a featured called "custom gameboots" for quite some time. These gameboots replace the PSP's default introductory sequence when launching a game.

As per tradition, Fanjita's latest PSP homebrew eLoader has been named after beer, this time 'Kriek,' a Belgian concoction brewed from fermented sour cherries. Kriek (v0.995) marks the first eLoader release for firmware 2.80 (not 2.81 or 2.82) and features xLoader, which can launch homebrew from XMB...

Sony's not doing well in this battle against homebrewers. Although they just released 2.81 (to very little fanfare), the hacking community never seems more than a step or two behind. Firmware emulation has been an option for many people with 1.5 PSPs, as it gives them the flexibility of running all ...

One of my favorite things about the 2.80 firmware is its ability to download video podcasts. While visiting podOmatic, a sudden realization came into my mind: we can make our own podcast!

Many of you were wondering where the second downloadable demo was today. I was wondering the same thing as well.
