Here's a treat for you guys hoping for another exploit. A Japanese coder by the name of mamosuke has found a hole in a particular UMD (The name of said UMD is not given so Sony cannot patch it).

The following video displays him booting up the exploit. From there you can see a special screen displaying the exploit and credits to the following Coders/Developers.

Here's the developers note for further inquiry:

  • What is this exploit?
    This is a savegame exploit for PSP that works on the latest official firmware.
  • We want to know the name of the game.Tell us plz.
    I can not reveal the name of its game, but now on line with only a video. My exploit in now working on JP version,but in fact, there are another regions of the game so I think it would have a same vulnerability.
  • Only video never show us the proof of anything. Probably FAKE?
    Now I made only a binary loader. If I would say the name of the game, Sony could kill my exploit before I would release anything in the next firmware update.
  • Is yours the same as J416 exploit?
    No. Another one.
  • When will it be released?
    I am going to think it over before releasing from now. But I know that I do not have to make public before getting some results: at least I am not going to release only the “Hello World” like stupid malloxXX who released patapon2 Hello World for the first time in the world. But if Sony would patch my exploit, I would release it.
  • Is there a DEMO version? Can I buy it at PSN?
    I have never seen a demo version which can have a savedata. We can find a downloadable version in PSN but I tried my exploit on my PSP go, it froze after reading a savedata.

There you have it. What are your thoughts? Is this the real deal, or another fake? Will we see a potential 6.30 CFW? I for one am intrigued.
