Two days after we revealed DevHook was emulating the 3.01
firmware, Sony has introduced 3.02. As we later discovered, it appears that this firmware doesn't add any security to the system at all.
As with all incremental upgrades, this revision simply increases "system security," making it more difficult for homebrew programs to run on the system. Considering how DevHook's advancement was a crippling blow to Sony's anti-homebrew stance, we can expect 3.02 to be required in new games very soon.
However, for most gamers, will the lack of any new features provide enough incentive for them to update right now?
To get the update, simply use "Network Update" from your PSP's XMB.
According to PSP-Vault
, 3.02 seems to work on DevHook. There is no additional security added to this version. Instead, it appears a certain game
is responsible for this update.]
