Something interesting. Smallest Homebrew

Post by Proxima » Wed Jan 15, 2014 3:43 pm

It's been a long time since I've posted in this forum, but 3 years since the big breakthru's in the PSP Security, I thought it was time to share something interesting and security related again.

For those who dig into the details of this, I am sure it will prove interesting. The homebrew itself is not important, the fact that it runs on ORIGINAL firmware is more important. No forging, no faking, no hacking. Just good clean homebrew for original firmware. The size is notable in that the entire EBOOT.PBP is only 38k.

Enjoy!

Um. I don't think the point is for this to directly be used for other homebrew. It would be kind of pointless. The bigger point is what learnings can be had from this to show that there is a better way to do homebrew. This is the first of its kind as far as I know. It shows there is some nice opportunities for a new class of "legit" homebrew.

It demonstrates a new way to create homebrew to run on OFW in a completely legitimate way with no hacks or forging. The homebrew itself really doesn't do much. The way the package is encrypted and signed is really the point. Sorry if I was being too subtle.

So, it's signed, but not the way we've been signing tons of homebrew for awhile now, this is something different?
Sounds interesting
