Hello World for 2.01/2.5 PSPs has now been released by Fanjita. Using Edison Carter's GTA cheat machine, Fanjita has successfully found a way to load custom code on firmwares 2.XX of the PSP, through a savegame exploit/glitch in GTA.
This program he has compiled successfully demonstrates how to run the Hello World homebrew application on 2.01/2.5 PSPs (which prooves external code launching on 2.XX). In the future, expect things such as an EBOOT loader and more soon!
Quoted by Fanjita, "This Hello World demonstrates the proof of concept that this can be used to run applications, and provides an easier platform for other people to work with - not to mention, a platform for me to get the EBOOT loader working on top of."

Note that you will need a copy of GTA: LCS in order for you to run this hack! So go out and buy your copy today (heh, Sony should be seeing a lot of profits).
For installation steps, check out the readme.
Big ups to Fanjita on this hack, and extended credits to Jim Paris, psp123, EdisonCarter, abu, toc2rta, groepaz and bitmap1 for their contributions. Great job! Thanks to pspupdates for the news.
Well guys this could be the biggest break through for a while, but i will still be buying a White 1.5 or 2.0 downgraded for Christmas. I love the white lol.
