    Quote(Wololo): “HBL opens the door to lots of legal contents on unhackable PSPs”

    U mean “ilegal” hahaha

  2. cscash241 says:

    @Sony Corp no it’s legal

  3. Lorz says:

    @Sony Corp…. you couldn’t be more wrong, HBL has no ISO loading capabilities, and probably never will….. this limitation alone closes the door to most illegal content, while still allowing for tons of user made content to run…… making HBL probably the most “legit” “unofficial” PSP software enabler available.

    I’ll go on further to argue that even the most capable CFW/HEN/ISO loaders on the scene do no more to “open the door for illegal software” than connecting a PC to the internet….. does your PC attempt to control which software you can and cannot run? Does it attaempt to control what you download? No it does not….. so that means that every time you connect to the internet you are “opening the door to illegal software”….. SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. cv says:

    great info nao ill i gtta do is find an exploit…

    but more importantly is the golf exploit a result of a buffer overload like patapon2 where it overwrites some code because the name is too long, or is it the result of something else?

    plz respond, im tryn to learn as much as i can in the psp hacking scence, because it seems like alot a fun, n u cn give bac 2 da ppl

  8. wololo says:

    @cv: yes, same kind of buffer overflow exploit in the player’s name

    no pressure and please carry on~
    we are all behind you.
    P.S to be honest, I don’t care about legal or not. I think the point is that whether we can use PSP to do what we want.

    wish you good luck

  11. SifJar says:

    “If you plan to distribute your compiled binaries, it is required that you provide your source code as well. Don’t make us ask for it ”

    Technically this is incorrect. All it says in the GPL is that you must provide a written offer of the sources on demand. So you can be made to ask for it :P. Of course, they have to give it if you DO ask for it 😉

  12. wololo says:

    @SifJar : you are very right, but we don’t like to beg 🙂

  13. 1HanPlay says:

    We all know a person keeps the best work to them self so thank wolololo
    for a great product which will be forgotten in 2015

    So wololo was it fun to make the HBL and will you extend the HBL later in the future?

  14. 1HanPlay says:

    i forgot the letter “d” Damn Camera Guy

  15. 1HandPlay says:

    HBL is free to see and may be used freely, distributed as-is, but without any guarantees or warranties whatsoever. It is not the author’s responsibility if the program eats your hard drive,steals your girlfriend, kills your cat, stabs you with a knife or screws up your PSP. So don’t you go crawling to your momma that somebody broke your wookie. HBl is a trademark of Wololo.

  16. wololo says:

    @1HandPlay : lol 😀
    And yes, we will most likely keep working on HBL as long as there are people using it. There’s no reason to stop working on it unless it becomes replaced with something better.

  17. jr says:

    do you think that no this exploit is released and every one can make it now that some day some one will make a hbl downgrade so you can accesses kernel mode??

  18. SugafreePSP says:

    @Wololo, “How about the VSH exploit mentioned, is it still in progress, or has the project been shutdown, i dont wanna jinx it though 🙁 ? 🙂

  19. jaime says:

    men este exploit me funciono el hello world mi psp es version 3010 y 6.31 espero mas noticias al respecto

  20. Alex says:

    it is all you can do??? it is everything you can do??

    really.. ZzzZZzzz

  21. wololo says:

    @Alex : yeah, sorry, HBL is the best I could come up with. How about you? Done anything with your life except reusing some famous hacker’s name to forget you’re a nobody?

  22. 0M9H4X says:

    im wondering why something like HBL didnt already came out.
    an easy-to-port user mode HB Loader.
    maybe cuz firmwares had tons of security issues back in the day,
    so you just had to wait a week for the next downgrader.
    anyone here who remembers “Luminees”? 😀

    A Project like HBL (mostly HBL itself) will become more and more important i think. Ppl will finaly learn to respect HBs instead of beggin for ISOs, when even user mode exploits become more and more rare…

    I won the fight regarding ISOs with myself an easy way.
    I bought a chipped PS2. It might not has all PSP titles, but
    theres always a nice game to replace these.

    Since then, my PSP became a 100% Homebrew device.
    seriously, the 6.20 compability list on advancedpsp is large enough
    to keep me busy for a long, long time.

    Thank you for you work, guys.
    Special thanks to JJS for making HBL such stable on 6.20 PSP-300X’s

  23. sandesh says:

    easy as a pie, u say? i didnt understand a thing u talked about. i dont even know how to find and make a save game exploit to begin with. and as for porting hbl to my exploit, it would probably take lots and lots of work, and still wouldnt work. sorry, but i am a COMPLETE noob when it comes to hacking and C++.

  24. sandesh says:

    now it would be AWESOME to have my own exploit. can u tell me how to find and make 1?

  25. Alex says:

    Whoa! nobody? The only thing you could do was relive what we played 10-15 years ago. nice work .. Now reverse the roles .. I was his idol .. Now I who am the fan.

  26. random dude says:

    http://www.advancedpsp.tk/ seems down, anyone has copies of the important bit in the forum or new URL ?

  27. jim says:

    can you use stuff like gamemaker or fps creator???
