KanadeEngel' next Project...
That's right, as its name says, this little PSP app allows you to dump the NAND IPL.
The NAND IPL Dumper by dev KanadeEngel allows you to do precisely that on your PSP.
If you don't know what IPL is...
While -right now- this isn't very useful for the "normal" user, it's still to see the PSP scene isn't dead yet.The IPL or Initial Program Loader plays a role in the boot process of the PSP. It's basically one of the obstacles that must be conquered when it comes to putting together a custom firmware for the handheld. In the PSP-3000s onwards, the IPL is encrypted which prevented them from having a permanent custom firmware when they were first released.
In any case, you can play around with it by downloading the tool HERE!.
