i just read this news and can this emulator brick your psp because it has kernel access?
Freedom Fry from our development forums just made a break through in "hacking". He made it possible to run the Linux operating system on the PSP. It has to access the kernel mode so it is only for 1.0 and 1.5 PSPs. He does warn you that because it has to access the kernel mode, it can brick your PSP! He said he tested it hundreds of times and his never became bricked but still heed the possibility. The readme didn't contain much information except this is a "proof concept" and it is "very limited right now". He will be updating this within the next few days so look out for it. The readme has all the technical specifications and geeky jazz for you develops who are interested.
