Hi everyone, after trying out the Downgrade scene i have given up and now focusing on the exploit side of 2.00. I hope this thread doesn't go off track and gives false hope to people. I have been playing around with some homebrew applications the mario demo from PSPHacks, and i can get the app to actually launch on a 2.00 PSP and now found that it works for any app. Using my patched version of the eboot.pbp i can get it to actually launch but after the white boot screen, it goes black and then says "The Game Could Not Be Started (80020148)". Next i used PSPBrew to make my patched eboot.pbp in the same way as someone would to run on a 1.5, so made it into two folders, and tried again, this time it booted the same way but it hanged on the white boot screen, then eventually turned it self off. I have made videos of the different steps and have added the files with the corrosponding video's. I recommend downloading all 3 files first, watching the videos in order and then trying out the files for your self, you will understand my progression better.
The mario app is just an example, it does work with any HB application. I was following the PSPHacks thread where this mario app was posted but it turned out to be BS so i started experimenting with it.
