Sony announced that version 2.0 of the PSP system software will be available for download today. The user agent is “Mozilla/4.0 (PSP (PlayStation Portable); 2.00)” (in contrast to the older hacked web browser’s “SCEJ PSP BROWSER 0102pspNavigator”). If you can upload a picture of the new PSP web browser rendering the HTML version of OSNews, please post a link below.

I just tried the new PSP web browser a little bit (not alot). But anyway, here is a picture of it in action on osnews using the Just-Fit display mode.
I don’t see it. Bad link?

They were linking 127.0.0.1, AKA ‘localhost’, even more useless than 10.*, 192.168.*, 172.16.*-172.31*.

Simply copy-pasting the link works. I guess Blogger doesn’t allow hotlinking.

Link is broken, but I suspect it’s based on the Oregano web browser as used on the PS2 and many a set-top box.
However, the fonts will look nice and antialiased.
Alright, I guess the blogger photos don’t work well with a direct link. So I uploaded it to flickr. Hopefully this link will work… http://photos21.flickr.com/28989572_1f3446f6f0_o.jpg
Some of the new features are great. I hope homebrew development catch-up with these version soon! (unlikely… as versions 1.5.1 and 1.5.2 still no homebrew friendly… but well, I just “hope”… =] )
i went an did a network update on my PSP and it said that i have the latest update already installed. how can i get the browser update?
The Japanese version was released this morning. The US version will be out sometime this afternoon. Just keep checking it will show up. I don’t know what that guy up there is smoking, but unless he downloaded the Japanese firmware, he’s faking the browser shots with a made-up screenshot from something else.

Ever thought that he might just have a Japanese PSP? That is the most logical explanation.

I did download the Japanese firmware because I have a Japanese PSP. And its not a fake screenshot. Why would I need to fake a screenshot? And I am not smoking anything.
Thre japanese version works perfectly with US PSPs.
Ok, here’s another pics showing the menu of PSP web browser (i’m same guy who posted the other pic).
There is even tabs (it seems the limit is 3). The analog stick is like the mouse. There are 3 display modes for a site. One is normal and the page is not adjusted at all (its kind of like you can see part of it and you can scroll all over, left, right, up, down). 2nd mode is Just-Fit where the page width is adjusted to fit the PSP’s screen and the 3rd mode is Smart-fit which reorders the content on the page so the page width matches the screen width. (this seems to be the slowest mode though). Not much else to say, it works pretty well so far.
Sorry for the ignorance but, what is the OS that the PSP run on? And what is the default browser?
I read somewhere that the main reason for the 2.0 release is top stop memstick boot. I’m all for kicking pirates (assholes like Paradox and the rest) but it would be interesting to still be able to do some OSS hacking on the PSP.
does anybody know when sony will release the official network update in the US (network update meaning turning on the psp and updating it with Network Update)?
Just goto the japanese site and download it, make an “upgrade” folder in your psp’s game folder, and open it up in your psp.
The coolest thing is that it now allows me to download podcasts! its über-sick.
is this download safe or is this one of those homebrew things that can mess up my psp and not let me download anymore updates? if i download the 2.0 jap update, will my psp work normally as if it was an official update? please help!!

the jap version of the update runs FLAWLESSLY on american psp’s, in fact, i was at the local internet cafe today, updateing my website.
Support for WPA-PSK!
im posting from my psp
i wonder if this is a gpl violation
it actually looks pretty good on the psp.
Does WPA actually work for anyone? I tried to use it but it just claims to time out exchanging the keys. Two other systems on the network use WPA OK.
Hi , i checked for the 2.0 update on my psp and it keeps on saying ” You already have the latest version”. Which is 1.52 . sO does anyone know were to dowload one or when will it show up on my psp. Help please
where can i find the update, i know jack of japanese, and none of my other friends seem to be able to find it? also is it really that nice the broswer?

Unless it’s powered by Microsoft Internet explorer, it won’t display a part of the webpages correctly anyway. I wonder what rendering engine it uses, what standards it supports, and how it handles badly written HTML.
It’s a shame it doesn’t support flash though, one could have played all those funny Flash games on it otherwise.
Flash, the only truely cross-platform solution (although severly limited in number of platforms supported). Until GPL flash matures and manage to screw it up with all kinds of inconsistencies, that is.
Flash, the only truely cross-platform solution”.
It might be cross-platform (kind of), but it’s certainly not the best solution in most cases. Flash has intrinsic disadvantages which make it well, kind-a s*ck for most types of websites.
No. If it’s powered by MSIE it won’t display webpages correctly anyway. You got that slightly upside down.
