No GTA or downgrading needed to run homebrew

PSP owners are getting even more and more choices every day. People with older PSPs could emulate newer ones. People with newer PSPs could downgrade to older ones. For those that want to have fairly new firmware for new games, and also have the ability to run homebrew on one machine without too many confusing steps now have an alternative: simply running homebrew on PSPs, up to version 2.60. Ditlew and Fanjita have released a new eLoader called "Porter" that lets you run homebrew apps on your PSP. In order to use it, you'll have to download the appropriate files, and then run it on your system before using homebrew. While this may sound complicated, it's a lot better than the previous method, which involved having a copy of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

The hard-working team of coders won't stop there. They're already working on getting PSPs 2.80 to work, and eventually... a way to run homebrew directly from the XMB without even having to use the eLoader. Wow.
