How are firmware "dumps" normally acheived? Are the ones that have been done so far just from hacking into the update or sere they extracted from the already flashed chip? If the latter, is it done through a homebrew on the psp (thus can't be done on 1.51-2.0) or is it through some other means that 2.0 is protected from?Originally Posted by psycho
Also, this is probably way out there, but what would happen if you tried to run the update on the psp emulater? Could that provide a way to get to the contents of the update? Sorry if these are stupid questions--tenuous grasp and all that. Mostly I figure if any of my ideas would work someone smarter than me would've done it by now; I ask more because I'd like to know why they won't work.
