PSP: Custom Firmwares for Firmware 6.61 possible – Currently being updated!
Just a few days ago a new PSP firmware, version 6.61, has been released by Sony.
After taking the firmware apart, we were able to check if the firmware 6.61 patches the 6.60 exploits…
And it does not. All the signed content is still working (Homebrews, fake signed ISOs, sign_np signed ISOs) and so is the HBL, at least if you use the VHBL builds, instead of the old 6.60 XMB HBL build.
The most important things, the Custom Firmwares and the downgrader, are, as of now, not working on firmware 6.61.
But dont worry, it does not look like that the firmware 6.61 changed that much, which therefore means that the CFWs can easily be updated for firmware 6.61.
Through a few dirty tricks it is possible to install a cIPL CFW (those for the PSP 1000s & non-88v3 2000s) on firmware 6.61 as of now, but it is worth to mention that the 6.60 CFWs are not fully working on firmware 6.61.
The custom firmwares are currently being updated for the new firmware 6.61, so that a properly working 6.61 CFW can be released in near future.
It is currently unknown if the downgrader will be updated for firmware 6.61, but we think that someone will do it, eventually.
