And From : http://188.8.131.52/~naoneo/naoneo/dev/05sept.htmlBreaking News: PSP V2 firmware security completely broken ?
We are hearing news that PSIX lead programmer and MaxConsole forum member Naoneo aka Fluff has managed to directly modify the v2.00 psar files recently and is now able to modify ALL the contained firmware information including version check and the security lock, no one has known how to bypass the psar encryption check which MaxConsole user Mr A described some days ago, it looks like the start of the custom hacked firmware area has begun and we have video proof for this. There is no ETA yet, but we will get in touch with fluff asap to find out more, for now enjoy the video leaked by beta testers .
Normally video's mean nothing, but this one is very convincing and we have all seen Naoneo/Fluff's good work in the past so we'll let you know more as soon as we hear it! For now enjoy the video proudly hosted here at MaxConsole, we have been re-assured 100% this is no hoax or half complete project...take a look at the video and decide for yourselves.
Just to put this into perspective, this will hopefully pave the way for similar developments like Evolution-X and Xecuter BIOS on the Xbox except it is more direct and you will just have to launch the modified eboot.
Let's hope this one is real...we never like to say anything is for sure but this video and information has got a lot of people convinced.

Just a little video i made to prove that any future videos involving the psps original shell, and "hacks", are no longer a reliable source of proof, as you can see in the video my psps version number is "Version 6.66 internal Development unit".
Tthis was done by changing code in flash0:/vsh/resource/topmenu_plugin.rco for an edited version taken from the v2.00 data.psar, the version number was done by editing the version code from sysconf_plugin.rco, and extending the text to overlap the end by deleting the "internal error has occured" text, basically from the image below, you can write anything you want in this area, the wrap begins around the l of "internal" depending on the length of the word used, have fun but try not to brick your psp k?
