Bypass Firmware Check?

Post by xapth » Sat Sep 04, 2010 10:20 pm


I have a question in regards to whether or not the Half Byte Loader can do something.

My PSP is on official firmware 5.50. I bought a game that requires the use of firmware 6.20 or higher.
I have my own reasons for not wanting to update it any higher.
So my question is, is there a way to use Half Byte Loader and perhaps some sort of homebrew to enable me to play this game without updating to 6.20?

It's not doable, at least, no with the current possibilities of HBL. Most likely you'd need a kernel exploit for that
