Update: this has been confirmed by many trusted sources to be real and working. We also confirmed that this entry is accepted in the Genesis competition
I usually test those things before blogging about it, but this is huge news, some1 is a respected dev, people have reported success with it, and I’m stuck at work with my pspgo without the stupid proprietary cable. So I can’t test it right now, but I’ll report it anyways.
Developer some1, who once ported HBL to the latest firmwares, released a downgrader for 6.38. Does it mean he found a new Kernel exploit? The readme is a bit unclear, mentioning a VSH exploit by TiPi and Nymphaea,
so we’re probably between a user mode exploit and a kernel exploit here, which might be good enough for a downgrade. Some1 confirmed that he found a Kernel exploit. He mentions TiPi and Nymphaea’s VSH exploit because it indirectly taught him a lot, but what he uses for this downgrader is his own Kernel exploit.
This is an entry for the PSP Genesis competition.
, although we haven’t reviewed it yet.

This has been confirmed to work by many testers, and you should have no issue running it. If your PSP is not compatible with this downgrade, the program will let you know, and won’t let you harm your PSP, but use at your own risk
Some1 also confirmed that he is working on a solution for unsupported models (psp 3000 07g/09g) and that he needs beta testers
