Multiplayer PSOne gameplay emulated over WiFi-linked PSPs

- From Joystiq:

"A hacker called "AhMan" has created a software mod that enables two PSPs to play PSOne games over an adhoc WiFi connection, although apparently this software is in early development -- really, when isn't this kind of hack? For now the evidence is a YouTube video showing a pair of PSPs playing synchronized two player PSOne games, so we'll have to give them to [sic] benefit of the doubt that it's actually legit. If it is, you should be able to procure the software required within a reasonable amount of time: if you're willing, of course, to jump through the usual series of firmware related hoops to get there."

PSP Slim Hacked

- News from MaxConsole:

PSP Slim Security defeated in record time - M33 PSP Custom Firmware v3.6 RELEASED!!!
It didn't take Team M33 long did it now? Just FIVE days after the official European release of the PSP Slim & Lite, M33 have released custom PSP firmware v3.6! Moreover, this release confirms Pandora's Battery can be fully compatible with the new PSP Slim & Lite! Sony will have to try harder than that to 'protect' their system from avid homebrew fans!

- From the read-me:

"We are proud to present the first custom firmware for the PSP Slim, and the first custom firmware that runs using a 3.XX IPL (3.60)
3.60 M33 for PSP Slim has all the features of 3.52 M33, except the 1.50 kernel support, as that kernel doesn't work properly on psp slim (hardware problems, screen problems).3.60 M33 will load homebrew from GAME, GAME150 and GAME360 directories, but all will be executed with 3.60 kernel.
This mean that some homebrews done specifically for the 1.50 kernel cannot work on 3.60 M33. However, the adaptation of code to 2.XX+ kernels is not difficult, and homebrew developers can port their aplications to work in these firmwares.
Included with the release is the M33 sdk for programmers."
