Video: Laughing Man TIFF exploit working on PSP-3000?
Man, when exploit fever hits, it hits hard! A user by the name of p2s2p on the Dark-AleX.org forums has apparently been able to run MaTiAz's Laughing Man TIFF exploit (the slim.tiff one, it seems) on a PSP-3000 with OFW 5.02. Here's a video:[CODE]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/euFXzKRaSqw&color1=0xb1b1b1&color2=0xcfcfcf&hl=en& feature=player_embedded&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/euFXzKRaSqw&color1=0xb1b1b1&color2=0xcfcfcf&hl=en& feature=player_embedded&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/CODE
As you saw in the vid, merely opening the TIFF file doesn't cause the exploit to run. You have to make sure that you have other photos in your PHOTO folder (around 10 seems to be the safe choice) and let all the thumbnails load first and then scroll up and down a few times until the crash occurs.
You might have to make sure that the TIFF file stays at the bottom of the thumbnails list too, although I'm not so sure about that part. There's also this post on the same thread by user cypriotbro, who says he's been able to reproduce the exploit 100% so far:
i have 8 pictures in my psp/photo folder (including the slim.tiff which is at the bottom) i turn my psp off fully(hold power switch) and back on. then i go to pictures and click on the ms. very quickly you have to scroll all the way down and back up twice, then press o then x and scroll all the way down.
Some posters think that the key to making it work lies in clearing the PSP's RAM first, hence you have to turn it off. There are other tricks to doing this such as changing the language, so try them out too. There's a lot more info you can find in the source link.
There are also some user posts on the forums saying that this also runs on a TA-088v3 mobo. I don't have a Brite myself so I can't really test it out. Feel free to try it if you have one lying around, though.
Thanks to InTeNsE-OnE for the tip!
