    A question:

    let’s say you hackers hacked the 3000 and made a CFW for it, let’s say it is this OFW (6.00), then sony released a new OFW let’s say (6.01) does that mean you have to work again to exploit it ? or maybe you only have to include the features of the (6.01) into the (6.00) ?

    sorry for this question, you know I am not a hacker, but trying to be so =:D

  2. Unpro says:

    How are you sure this isn’t exploitable? don’t we have to wait until someone makes 6.00 cfw and then run psplink?

    @S1mm3: it depends on the hack, but generally, yes. Since the hacks exploit a vulnerability in Sony’s firmware, they usually patch it when they believe it hurts their market. They do that with a new update for their firmware, so the hunt for bugs/exploits has to start again

    @Unpro: I found this vulnerability on firmware 5.00. I actually think it’s been here for a while. So myself and other devs (more skilled than me) were able to test it on 5.00, and we believe it is not exploitable. I don’t want to release the file for people to test it, since last time I did that, the file ended up being used for stupid fakes.

  4. wololo says:

    The right people have had access to the files. I won’t distribute it publicly, since last time I did that, it led to stupid fakes. see:

    Again, it’s pretty sure this is not exploitable.

    Please Give the mp3 files:):)

    we will be waiting for any tiny hope to install cfw on psp 3000 5.50

    Good job man~!

    if its not exploitable why does everyone want it so bad… i think this is a case of reverse phycology, say they can’t have the files so they want them.

  11. unpro2 says:

    stupid me. i updated my psp slim to cfw 6.01.. is there any way i can downgrade it?.. pls help.. T_T

  12. indrora says:

    Yep, go use a pandora (0xFFFFFFFF) battery and an MMS, reflash to 5.00M33-6 from a PSP-Grader and go 🙂

  13. unpro2 says:

    whew.. tnx for uplifting my spirit.. lol..

  14. unpro2 says:

    wait, wait.. does this mean that releasing this latest ofw.. they didn’t fixed the hacking thing about pandora?… i was heard this latest ofw(6.01).. have you tried downgrading from 6.01 to a lower cfw?.. or do you know someone?.. tnx..

  15. wololo says:

    @unpro2: Sony can’t fix the pandora vulnerability with software. The vulnerability exists in Hardware. As long as you have a “pandorizable” PSP, you will always be able to downgrade from OFW.

  16. unpro2 says:

    wow.. thanks once again.

  17. Faisal says:

    hey I got a PSP 2004 Slim .. well stupid me too cuz I upgraded it to OFW 6.10 … and is there any way I can downgrade it to CFW 5.50 or sumfin?? HELP!?


  18. wololo says:

    @Faisal: it depends on the model of your motherboard: if you have a ta88v3, you’re sc***. Otherwise, no problem to downgrade, you can buy a pandora battery and create a magic memory stick pretty easily.
    Google for ta88v3 to understand if you have such a motherboard

  19. Faisal says:

    @wololo: thanks man! I had an idea but now i’m sure 😀 .. emm one more thing or rather 2 more things 😛

    1. the motherboard how to check ill try my best to check I can find..
    2. the magic memory stick! well is the memory card formatable and be used again for other stuff after its been converted to magic memory stick?

    ps. I got the tutorial n all on how to make memorycard to magic and how to downgrade it from ofw 6.10 just want to know about thoes 2 points if you can help..

    thanks agn..

  20. Faisal says:

    wow my I checked my psp’s box and it has the letter ‘G’ that mean its freakin ta88v3 isnt it 🙁 .. pls pls do let me know if its confirmed that ‘G’ means its ta88v3 and i’m sc***!

  21. wololo says:

    The only way to be 100% sure is to test with a pandora battery, but if your psp has this letter ‘G’ and originally came with a firmware 4.01 or higher, it’s probably a ta88v3.

    If I were you I’d get a Pandora battery and a DC8 kit (borrow it from a friend and/or get it on the internet, the former method is recommended), and try it. it’s the only way to be 100% sure.

    […] what? Well, you do whatever is needed to reproduce your crash. In my case, I have an mp3 file that crashes the PSP, so on my PSP I go to the music menu, and try to play the […]
