OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know im very religious but I cant believe this!!
ITS SEEMS I HAVEPROOVEN MYSELF WRONG!
THE MOD CHIP IS REAL!
The U.P. (Undiluted Platinum) is a flash replacement system for the PSP™ which allows the use of previous flash updates or custom firmware builds, opening up the possibility to run unsigned homebrew code on even the latest PSP systems. The U.P. contains 32MB NAND flash which is programmable from the PC via a high speed USB connection, using our user friendly software. You may boot the PSP from either its onboard flash or the flash contained on the U.P; the flash which is used is determined by a button press as the PSP is powered on (U.P. flash is used by default, hold L1 to use the PSP onboard flash). Since U.P. provides a secondary flash which the PSP can boot from, it can even be used to restore a PSP which has been "bricked". Every effort has been made to make our flash updater software, which will be freely available for download, both as easy to use and reliable as possible. The software also contains diagnostics which can be used by installers to determine if an installation has been successful or not.
Undiliuted Platinum
The U.P. has been designed to minimize installation difficulty and effort. A FPC (flexible printed circuit) cable is included which routes the essential signals from the PSP motherboard to the U.P. main board and U.P. USB connector. Copper enamel wire is included, which will provide the connection between the FPC cable and the motherboard signal traces. The FPC cable also helps by reducing the mechanical stress placed on the solder points, making a U.P. modified PSP shock resistant which is important for handheld systems. Installation aids are included, and installation diagrams for all PSP hardware revisions will be available for download, together with flasher software application, from our reseller's websites. More about installation together with install pictures closer to release.

The FPC cable end to which the USB connector board attaches is routed into the battery compartment and sits above the battery. The battery cover can be replaced after flash updating and the cable remains safely in the compartment until the next update is required, whereupon the USB connector can be clipped in place within a few seconds. This means that the U.P. is completely contained within the PSP under normal usage and avoids any unsightly external modifications to your PSP. PSP is after all portable, let’s keep it that way!

In order to maximise the benefits that U.P. can provide its users, we have decided to take an open source approach with U.P and will be releasing source code for any software we release as well as full documentation for the U.P. hardware interface - including information on how to control U.P. from within PSP programs. This will allow anybody to create software which can take advantage of what U.P. has to offer. We have also sent a few prototype units away to some of the scene's best software hackers in order to give them a headstart at working on custom flash replacements - cant wait to see what people will come up with!


Features Announced:

* Ultra reliable and feature rich Actel ProASIC Plus FPGA
* Full Speed USB 1.1 ASIC onboard
* Branded 32MB NAND flash onboard (same flash as used in PSP)
* Stable and reliable flashing software freely available for download
* Installation verification using flashing software
* Ultra compact four layer PCB
* High quality Japanese connectors
* USB cable included
* FPC cable included, reducing installation effort and improving shock resistance
* Copper enamel wire included
* Open platform development system for software developers
* Installation has been optimized to fit entirely inside PSP
* All PSP hardware versions/regions supported
* User updatable flash
* Low power consumption
* Flash select via button press
* Ultra compact PCB has been designed to avoid signal bounce

Bundled Stuff:

* U.P. MAIN MODULE x1
* U.P. USB BOARD x1
* USB CABLE x1
* INSTALLATION AIDS 1 SET
* COPPER ENAMEL WIRE 1 SPOOL
* FPC CABLE x1

It will be priced at around 75 Euros, or $90. A bit high, if you ask me. But completely worth it. I guess this is enough to silence the skeptics. And making the PSP 'brick-proof'? Wow, that's something which will excite everyone. This would obviously lead to more hacks since the hackers can experiment without fearing bricking their PSP.

wow

I too am also excited very much also am I. This is sweet guess I better study up on my sodering. I was very precaucious with even putting homebrew on my psp, but this I am paranoid about. I like the idea, and plan on buying one. Just have to get my friend to order one offline for me. Me no tengo un credit cardo. Money orders are nice. My brother will love this. POWER TO ALL THOSE WHO WERE STUPID ENOUGH TO UPGRADE TO 2.7!!!!! And he thought the os was stored on the 32MB card... Idiot....
Kingdom Hearts is the best video game ever made, and if anyone wants to challenge this... ** **** ********. There, I said it.

-Now I feel better

Well Bye Bye bricking eh? This is really a very nice development. Personally I'd rather use my skill with a red hot iron than risk bricking my PSP.. PLUS you get the advantage of having 2.7 on there.. Kewl..

Alas though I am in Canada and the $90 price tag is kinda crappy.. I think in Canadian $90usd is like what? $4,000,000 or something like that?? Ohh well. I'll save my pennies!! hehe
