PSP firmware

When the PSP upgraded to version 3.5 of the firmware, it blocked the ability for people to downgrade the firmware at a future date in order to run homebrew game. However on June 23, 2007 an exploit/hack was found when running the game Lumines: Puzzle Fusion that would allow people owning this game to be able to run programs and change the firmware. By Monday June 25, 2007... the game was showing a 750% increase in sales. By the end of the month, the game's sales had risen by 5000% from what it once was. This exploit has since been fixed in PSP Firmware version 3.51
