Sony Thwarted Again - Firmware 2.60 Hacked - First Homebrew Emerges!
It has only been a couple of days since our in-house Hacker / Coder / Forum Moderator extraordinaire, Fanjita, released the first homebrew game for 2.50 Firmware. Now he's taken the next step and accomplished the unthinkable, running homebrew on 2.60 Firmware! Thanks to his incredible efforts, it is now possible to play homebrew on your PSP no matter what firmware it has. This truly is a historic moment in the PSP Community, and we here at PSPUpdates are thrilled to bring you this exclusive release that you won't find anywhere else: Tetris on 2.60 Firmware.
This has been confirmed to work on PSP firmware version 2.01, 2.50, and 2.60 US
Fanjita just keeps on crackin' Sony's efforts to keep us from our homebrew! He started with creating one of the first ever homebrew on firmware 2.00, then moved on to create his 2.0 eboot loader which enables about 85% of PSP homebrew to work on 2.00, then brought us GTA Hello World savegame binary loader which opened the doors to 2.01+ homebrew. Now today we are proud to release the first homebrew game on firmware 2.60!
Be sure to stick with PSPupdates.qj.net for the latest and greatest PSP news. Fanjita is working hard and getting closer to getting his eboot loader to work with 2.60 firmware!
- v2.6 support
- Better compatibility with 2.01 and 2.5
- Improved the game slightly - now faster, with speed increase as you fill more lines.
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.
Note that this version might be more stable than the 2.50 Tetris released on 1/9/06.
