Run Homebrew on your PSP v3.50!!

Following research in conjunction with Archaemic, Noobz are proud to
present the first ever all-firmware exploit for the PSP.  Based on
Lumines, the “Illuminati” exploit is a user-mode exploit using a buffer
overflow in the savedata file – similar to the GTA exploit.

That's right – if you've got a legal UMD
copy of Lumines, then you can run homebrew on your PSP – whatever the
firmware version.  That includes v3.50! Right now, the only homebrew is
the Hello World demo released below – but in future we intend to
release a HEN and downgrader.

To make the exploit work:

  • Check that you have an EU or
    US version of Lumines (ULES00043 or ULUS10002).  Currently we don't
    have a version for the Japanese version, but we're working on it, as
    soon as we get hold of a Japanese UMD. 
  • Extract the contents of the 'MS_ROOT' folder from the ZIP file into the top-level of your memory stick. (HINT: If you wind up with an 'MS_ROOT' folder on the stick, you've done it wrong).
  • Start
    the game, and as soon as it gets to the 'Press START' screen, press
    START.  If you wait until the demo has started, the exploit may not
    work.
  • The screen should go blank, and the exploit will start
    after a few moments.  It doesn't do anything except look pretty at this
    stage – but feel free to enjoy the first homebrew on your v3.10 – v3.50
