Lumines can be used to unlock homebrew on the Sony PSP's latest firmware upgrade, and thus increasing sales of the classic puzzler 59-fold, the folks at Noobz! have released a v3.50 downgrader that uses the newfound exploit.
All you need is a US or EU version of Lumines (support for the Japanese version coming soon), "sufficient intelligence and english language skills," and a pocket full of dreams.* Also, be advised that by downgrading the PSP, you run the risk of bricking it, rendering the portable nothing more than a paperweight. Instructions and files for download available at the Noobz! website.
* Pocket full of dreams not required but is certainly helpful as part of a well-balanced lifestyle
