Tetris on 2.8!

Users of a 2.80 firmware PSP can now rejoice, the first piece of homebrew using the recently found libtiff exploit is now out there. Noobz brings you a version of Tetris that runs on your 2.8 PSP. Simple download the Tetris package, extract it to your ms0:/PSP/PHOTO dir and play away.

While a bit simplistic, this shows us that playable homebrew on a 2.8 PSP is a reality. If I were you I would hold off on installing that 2.81 firmware update.

[Update 1: I neglected to mention in the article that this runs on any PSP with firmware 2.0 - 2.8, I just stressed the 2.8 fact due to it being so damn cool :)]

  5. 5 Demon hunter

    I am unsure of Homebrew, but might try this just to see it.

  7. 7 Mitchyd

    It freezes when you are plugged in too…:S

    this homebrew does not freeze…. I have FW2.8 and it works just fine, ecept for the fact that I can;t seem to take screenies… what is the screen button on your psp anyway??? If you could help me with that it’d be nice :)

  9. 9 Dicer999

    The Screen button is the screen brighness thing. The screen shots go in your root directory, not in PHOTO or something, so you have you hook your PSP up to your C to see them.It also has to have all of the files in including the JPEG in a folder in your photo folder.

    and its got to be paused to take a “screenie”

    Yeah, just you’ve heard of it, and you’re obviously very “HARDcor,” doesn’t mean everyone else has. As “your mother” said, don’t get so angry about it.

    I have a small problem. I have version 2.8 and I DO NOT have that new motherboard but the tetris game won’t seem to work. It is there and its not corrupted. I click on photos and there is tetris. I click on it and it says there are no images. Can someone help me without yelling and using caps please.

  18. 18 bob

    this is brilliant i have been stuck with FW2.6 for ages hoping something good will come cause im too scared to downgrade when it comes for FW2 .
    tetris has become a beacon of light…….keep up the good work.

  19. 19 Dicer999

    I agree Bob. Hope more REAL homebrew comes out like the TIFF Font hacker, stuff like that I wanna see more of

  20. 20 Alex

    Yeah, if any of you guys know how, try to make some homebrew for 2.81 becuase, I foolishy upgraded to 2.81 and i don’t know anything about how to hack a PSP. Or if you could, a downgrader. Thanks

  21. 21 Will

    Mine says corrupted Data could someone give me step by Step im a noob in the hacking world

  22. 22 john

    ok ok if it freezes, dont open the photo folder and click triangle and view slideshow and that will load the homebrew game for u

    email me if u need more help hobojohn67@aol.com

    thanks

  23. 23 Dicer999

    @ Alex: There isnt even a 2.80 downgrader yet!! How could we possibly come out with a 2.81 downgrader. Also, 2.81 gets rid of the vunerability that 2.80 uses to use homebrew.

  24. 24 mr chub

    hey 4 2.81 couldnt they find an exploit thru JPEG or mac. flash?

  25. 25 Atari729

    Anyway…back to my situation. I still don’t know what to do. Can someone step by step me on how to work around the stupid corrupted data. Thanks john for your attempted help.
