A look-see at Undiluted Platinum, the PSP modchip

Not merely a modchip for your PSP, Undiluted Platinum, as we know, is supposed to be a complete flash / firmware replacement solution. But there were a lot of unanswered questions when we first found out about it a few days ago, but thanks to MaxConsole, we've got some answers. The 32MB flash storage area is booted to by default when installed in your PSP (shown above -- default PSP firmware can be accessed by holding L1 when booting), and can be written and modified freely with its own USB connector, which is routed through the battery compartment, making it completely enclosed, isolated, and independent. So much so, in fact, you can supposedly restore a bricked PSP with this thing. Expect a $90 US MSRP, and keep an eye out for more deets and pics as we get 'em.

[Thanks, Brad]
