This is certainly one of the weirder homebrew projects I've heard of. Using the libtiff exploit we've come to be so familiar with, SG57 has created a tool that allows anyone to open a Master Lock. It takes advantage of a logarithm that was cracked back in July 2005, and Master Lock may have changed...

Remember when TIFF games were all the rage? They were simple games that just needed to be placed in the PSP's PHOTO folder in order to work. One of the great things about TIFF homebrew was that almost anyone could use it, without any complicated ELOADERs and what-not. Another plus? It worked on home...

Remember how all the cool kids were making simple games for 2.80 firmware that took advantage of the libtiff exploit? Lovingly called TIFF games, these applications were placed into PSP's PHOTO directory, and were (for many people) really easy to use. They were coming out on a near-daily basis until...

We've been reporting on new homebrew on a nearly daily basis ever since the libtiff exploit was discovered. There are two more games to report about today. First is Penguin Scramble, which has you saving penguins Al Gore style. As with all of these TIFF games, it should be fairly simple to play. An...

The retro games just keep on coming. Mere moments after Tetris and Pong successfully appeared on the platform, homebrewers have crafted Tron for your enjoyment. Once again, it's fairly easy to install and launch: download the file and then place it in your PSP's PHOTO folder. Some users have express...

It only feels like yesterday when we were taking advantage of the libtiff exploit on firmware 2.80 to play Tetris. (It was just three days ago.) Well, it appears that the amazingly talented homebrew community has come up with yet another relatively simple game to run on our systems: Pong. Although t...

Wow, it's finally happened. The libtiff exploit that allowed users to downgrade their PSPs has now been used to launch a game application. Although a bit primitive, this piece of homebrew from noobz can be installed and launched very easily. Simply download this zip file and extract it into your PSP...

Looks like Sony's ready to counterattack against that libtiff exploit that's been so helpful to homebrewers over the past few days. The European PSP site has revealed text suggesting the impending release of firmware version 2.81. Most likely, it won't include any new functionality. However, I hope...

Downgraders allow people who regret having upgraded their PSP firmware to take a step back in time. Previous downgraders only worked up to 2.5 firmware, but today's downgrader will work with PSPs, firmware 2.71. This program takes advantage of the libtiff exploit uncovered a few days ago and is prov...

Homebrew can be a little confusing and intimidating. So, I guess it's a little understandable when tons of confused people write comments in the blog, having absolutely no idea what the latest libtiff exploit does. Sure, they could've read the article, or even the helpful comments, but remember: I'm...

Over the past few weeks, the homebrew community has been working hard on a new exploit in PSP firmware that would allow users of PSPs 2.0+ (including the recently released 2.80) run homebrew without Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. NOPx86, a team of coders, worked to take advantage of a flaw...
