Homebrew Browser v0.3現在開発中、だそうです

CodeMiiで、現在v0.2.5aバージョンのHomebrew Browserについて次期バージョンであるv0.3を目下開発中であることを伝えていました。

Homebrew Browser v0.3 Development

The Homebrew Browser v0.3 is under development and I would like some feedback on what needs to be changed or what works well. The two main changes will be the main page which the homebrew is displayed and having a proper about page. The Main page is a rough design, the icons/text will look better.
Homebrew Browser v0.3は現在開発中です。変更して欲しい点やちゃんと動いているかどうかの情報をいただきたいと思います。主に2点変更予定です。メインページではHomebrew一覧表示、それと詳細説明のページです。

Homebrew BrowserのいいところはWiiのHomebrewアップデートがWii本体で出来ることだと思います。HomeblueChannelにはない大きな特徴です。



Exploit Fever Is Here Again

Image You’ve probably seen the news that MaTiAz and FreePlay have found an exploit in the ancient game GripShift, which works on all PSPs (including PSP3000) and up to the latest Sony 5.02 firmware.

This is great news, it’s been a long time since a new game exploit was published, and it opens the way for at least user-mode homebrew on the PSP3000. Here at Noobz we saw the bat-signal calling for “someone who has experience in progressing exploits” to help out with developing this one further, and I’m glad to announce that we’ll be joining forces with FreePlay and MaTiAz.
すごいニュースです。ゲームを使った新しいexploitの発見は久しぶりです。PSP3000で少なくともユーザーモードでHomebrewを起動できる可能性が出てきました。我々Noobzチームは”誰かexploit開発の経験者いないの?”というお助けコールにお答えいたします。 FreePlayとMaTiAzらと一緒にやるとお伝えできることを嬉しく思います。

The exploit already includes an SDK to allow porting of homebrew by devs, but that’s cumbersome. Our initial focus will be to make it easier to run standard homebrew via this exploit, by adapting eloader to it. This will be restricted purely to user-mode homebrew, since there is currently no public kernel-mode exploit that could be used here, and compatibility is likely to be patchy due to the security measures in the later firmwares which make determining all the syscalls almost impossible. Still, you can expect that at least some emulators and other popular pure user-mode homebrew will run.

Beyond that, if anyone finds a usable route to kernel-mode then a HEN and downgrader ought to be doable, but we’re not focussing on that at this time.

Pre-announcements aren’t normally the Noobz way, but in this case it seemed worthwhile to let people know, in case anyone was thinking of doing similar work. We won’t predict timescales, especially as everyone is very busy at the moment and there’s a fair amount of work to be done – so please don’t ask.
