Despite the efforts of Sony to protect their program being hacked, a certain group whom they called themselves as Team Typhoon has announced that they have hacked the PSP 3000 Program.
According to everyjoe Typhoonâ€™s hack takes advantage of a tiff exploit; viewing a carefully crafted image with the PSP-3000â€™s built-in viewer reboots the portable and makes it load the HEN environment. Hereâ€™s the full declaratory message from Typhoon:
This is a demo of the 5.03 firmware running the tiff exploit and booting into a HEN environment on a PSP 2003 (3000 Support also) on 5.03 Official Firmware. This proves that the code survives a reboot and the system software and MAC address can be changed. This is something that only can be done with a kernel exploit. A video launching homebrew will be posted later.

What demo you ask? Here (Typhoonâ€™s currently working on packaging the exploit for the
public, by the way):
Now Sony has to do something to make another version :). What do hackers get from doing it ? Hmm Fame and money ?
