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.
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!
