Eggsclusive: the tiff exploit works on all models! (yes, 3000 too)

My titles are so funny I can’t stop laughing :/

Ok, I haven’t tested it myself yet, but a trusted source confirmed that Matiaz’s tiff exploit for the slim works on all slim models, including ta88v03 and the psp3000.

Here the email I got a few hours ago from Noob81:

Yep… just tested it… code is running on my psp 3000! p2s2p showed us a way to get it working! Too hard to explain here… got to DAX forums! (oh yeah, you have to upgrade to 5.02 though.) there is a video there also.

here is the video:

And another one:

They keep coming:

Now, I wouldn’t trust that kind of claim without testing it myself first, but I definitely trust Noob81, and seeing everyone started confirming it over at DAX’s forum, this is real, and I’ll try to confirm it with my eyes on my own model tonight.

Now, it seems the exploit works way better on recent firmwares, namely 5.02 and 5.03 (actually, nobody’s managed to have it run on 4.xx). But unless you’re a developer, don’t stupidly upgrade until this whole thing is actually useful for you as a user!!! Especially, if you upgrade, take responsibility for it, and don’t blame other people for your own mistakes.

If/When it is useful to really upgrade, big PSP news sites will let you know, until then, this is still work in progress.

To continue with the good news, Davee confirmed on MForMature’s forums that he is working on a Kernel Exploit which will probably become the key to a HEN on new firmwares. Let’s stay calm, it’s not done yet, anything could happen, but so far, all of this is looking very promising :)

For those who didn’t get it, in simpler words: The PSP 3000 has been hacked, for real!

    3000 was to break the V3 we will remember it? Hope you answer


  9. lanyudidi’s avatar

    you are so cute for explaining why you want pspers to comment in english not in chinese~~~~
    but i really want to know that
    how do you get the materials for hacking psp?


  10. NyghtcrawleR’s avatar

    So we are getting closer to ad-hoc being worked on/thought about implementing soon if this allows you some homebrew goodness on your 3000 are we Wololo? :)


  11. wololo’s avatar

    @NyghtcrawleR: definitely! When the HEN is out, first thing I’ll work on is having Wagic to run on it (in case it is not already compatible). When this is done, I’ll start working on network features!

    @lanyudidi: I have 2 PSPs, a Phat and a 3000. The architecture being very similar, I do most of my research on the PSP Phat, and usually, any firmware hack found on the Phat will work on the 3000 too. I have no extra hardware, except a USB cable to plug my PSP to the computer. For the rest, I mainly use PSPLink, which is open source software (you can find it on

    HEN cant come soon enough! haha


  13. jeerum’s avatar

    wololo, who confirm that tiff kernel exploit is real?


  14. wololo’s avatar

    The tiff exploit is not a kernel exploit. The tiff exploit is what led to the Hello World, and is different from the Kernel exploit Davee is working on. In the end however, the HEN will need to use both the User exploit (to start) and the Kernel exploit (to access useful functions).

    Also I am not directly in contact with Davee so I can’t confirm if the Kernel exploit is real or not. however he has a good reputation and was involved in the tiff (user) exploit as well, so I trust him.


  15. jeerum’s avatar

    but have we some tutorial, how find kernel mode exploits?


  16. wololo’s avatar

    Nope, no tutorials… :(


  17. jeerum’s avatar

    we can use this fo study
