    Which program did u use to compile ur code?

  2. wololo says:

    My code is written in Ruby, it doesn’t require a compiler, just an interpreter. I just use cygwin and the ruby package, But I think there are ruby interpreters for Windows as well

    I tried this with a gif image and lots of unsupported data, BUT i found that some of the images (opens and closes instantly) has resolutions of 96, then 97 then 98 (all ‘something’ x 100) the first resolution was the same as the file name. Quite interesting =]

    Really great tutorial.
    There is an error for me in the ruby script you wrote though :
    I had to change “y[i]=j;” to “y[i]=j.to_s” or it would give me an error (Cannot convert fixnum to string).
    Good job !

    When I run the code, it does some spaces in the file and decrease the size. ¿Why? I copy exactly the code like you.

    Ok i have shot in the dark question Wololo. Say when u crash the psp with ur .Mp3 Fuzzing it crashed at song 33 so is there maybe a way to possibly have song 33 or 34 or even 32 be a string of code to manipulate the psp?…. Was wondering cuz i guess from what i understand when the psp crashes certain walls are temp broke security i guess but at that point is when u can inject code and what not? isnt that how HBL works?….. Just a noob to the PSP scene recently <just an old time Html writer lol ty any pointers or advice would help.

    […] What’s left for us is hope: the last weeks have proven once again that the PSP is not 100% secure, eventually something good will happen. Oh, and if you’re looking for user mode exploits, focus on non game ones […]
