Here it is folks, what all you 2.50 PSP owners have been waiting for. Fanjita has released the first homebrew game for 2.50 Firmware - Tetris! As we mentioned yesterday, Fanjita has been hard at work bringing homebrew to 2.50 and 2.60 PSP's, and though he hasn't quite gotten 2.60 sorted out, he does think it will soon be possible. This builds off of Edison Carter's groundbreaking Grand Theft Auto Cheat Device and makes use of it to execute homebrew on 2.50 PSP's:
This is a simple demonstration that homebrew games are possible for PSP firmwares v2.01 and v2.5 via the Grand Theft Auto savegame exploit. It is also a test of the general-purpose GTA loader that will be used as the basis for running the EBOOT loader on v2.01+.From PSPUpdates and QJ.net, thanks to all those who contributed to this project and for bringing homebrew to more PSP's!
At the moment this game will not work on firmware v2.6, but I hope to release an update very soon that will. It also will not work on the censored German version of GTA - again, I hope to release an update soon.
Unzip the contents of this package into the /psp/savedata folder on your memory stick. Note that if you have an existing savegame that uses slot 5, then this will be overwritten by the Tetris savegame.
Start up GTA as normal. When it has loaded, select "Load Game", select the Tetris savegame and confirm the load as normal. After a short delay, the Tetris game should start.
To quit the game, you will need to hold your power button for 10 seconds. The HOME button looks like it might work, but it doesn't, yet.
