Success! 0okm Accesses Nand Flash on Firmware 2.80

Good times!Yes you heard right! 0okm reports that he has successfully accessed the NAND Flash memory on Firmware 2.80 PSP’s. This would leave PSP Gamers running 2.80 with a big question… Will there be a 2.80 downgrader? Well to quote 0okm, a “DG for FW2.80 is easy” thanks to Team C+D’s kernel mode exploit.

Accessing the flash, now what does that mean for me? Well, not much… just yet anyways. For developers however, the ability to properly access the PSP’s hardware on this level is the required base for developments such as a downgrader, and possibly a new custom firmware with handy modules.

It’s been quite an exciting time here recently for our PSP fans. We’ve seen some incredible breakthroughs that were strongly debunked previously; emulating Sony‘s new barrage of Firmware Updates (right out of the box), new custom firmware such as Dark Alex‘s 3.02 OE-A, and the latest version of Devhook. From the looks of things, it would appear most current PSP Gamers will be sitting pretty for the holidays. While the awesome PSP Dev community gets another Xmas present which could be the first hack welcoming in the new “post-Xmas” PSP gamers.
