Team Xecuter Mod Allows Downgrading!
user posted image

QUOTE
The moment you have all been waiting for.. Team Xecuter has announced that they have created a PSPX Mass Storage Converter mod that also allows downgrading of firmware. It gets even better, this mod allows mass storage via Smart Media Cards, Compact Flash Cards, USB Flash Drives, and even USB HDD’s. Check out what they had to say on their page:

For some time now we have been working hard on a PSP hack. If you remember we never said it was a modchip or anything that could boot dumped games or homebrew (currently you have psp-dev and the WAB team to thank for these breakthroughs). In fact what we designed was our own development hardware to tap into every aspect of the PSP, from the Memory Stick port through to its NAND flash memory and infrastructure.

As there are more and more homebrew applications and games and other exciting developments within the growing PSP scene there is obviousley a need for more storage - and with that comes a heavy price. The cost of a 2Gb DUO memory stick can cost over $400 !

However, what if you could use a Smart Media Card, Compact Flash Card, SD Card, USB Flash Drive or even a USB HDD !

Well it's possible. We are developing a simple plug in device where you can expand the PSP Memory Stick Port to connect to several other memory devices, thus saving massive costs and giving you a multitude of storage options for your PSP no matter what you wish to play with be it games, web browsers, ebooks, music players, media managers and much more !

Using this same development kit we have been able to downgrade v1.52 / v1.51 down to v1.50 or even a v1.00 with no problems whatsoever. We can also tell you its easily possible to patch the kernel to be able to boot anything you like without any type of software loader. It can be acheived in both a modchip AND a non-modchip form so no doubt teams like WAB and others will have solutions for you in the coming weeks as the methods to achieve this are indeed known by others - we are simply confirming its very possible. Before anyone makes a rumour - no Xecuter is not doing any form of modchip for the PSP - it will be a waste of time as every patch can be achieved without the need for this. However maybe certain dealers will have capabilities to downgrade your PSP firmware for you - or to repair PSP's damaged by the over zealous hacker - who knows ?

On a final note good luck to teams like WAB and PSP-DEV - they are worth supporting.

They have some really gifted people working over there at team xecutor.
Props to them for everything they have ever done to help the scene. beerchug.gif
Ill be grabing a psp when they finally get released here in Aus, mainly because i know the psp hacking scene will continue to develop.
I wonder what will be brewed from this, a portable remote server?

UK man develops PSP "Mod" to rollback PSP firmware!

Today we received word that a Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire UK man previously convicted by SCE on more than one count has allegedly made his move from the illegal X-Box mod-chip market towards $ony's PSP handheld! The PSP Mod pictured to your left he claims will "rollback" any version of the PSP firmware to a less-protected (and older) version even on PSP v1.51/1.52+ units!

Of course this could be considered an even bigger (and long-term) threat to $ony's PSP developers than the "homebrew" loopholes found in older PSP 1.00 and 1.50 revisions, but according to a post reply made by himself on his own Web site Forums "the pic is a dev device, the actual product will be small plug in where you can just stick in a usb flash drive etc" so perhaps the product he brings to market will not face the same result as his past experiences with $ony Computer Entertainment.

And they actually believe people are going to buy that nonsence crap they always talk about. It's just plain funny. jester.gif

LOL, what is ps2nfo going to do when this is released to the market by Team Xecuter, not "Stoke-on-Trent"? Are they just going to ignore it and not say anything about it being released?

the team xecuter device will not allow firmware downgrades. it is only a mass storage device.

from their site:

"It will not downgrade your PSP firmware or patch for any illegal or even legal activity - we made a comment that we had discovered how to do this using discoveries made by dev hardware but we are not going to be making any such hardware to perform this task - there will be no need - groups like WAB will be doing all this via software soon enough. We imagined this was clear but you don't expect news to be edited censored and twisted by scene-terrorists so I guess the best option is to post no news at all."
