Note from Wololo, a bit of context on this article: if you’re running a CFW on your 6.60 PSP such as Pro CFW, you are regularly using the 6.60 kxploit without knowing it.

660 kxploit is within ifhandle.pfx, which is the PSP port of mbuf. mbuf is the basic unit of memory management for network packets and socket buffers.
