The Other Hacks
This is exactly how the first publicly posted release of the web browser hack worked. Someone went through the trouble of using their own BIND (DNS) server on the FreeBSD operating system to trick the PSP into going to a site owned and controlled by the hacker (Roto). Since this process is challenging and most people do not have the time, resources, or knowledge to setup FreeBSD or BIND, someone else simplified the matter by providing a publicly accessible DNS and web server that had all the right settings from which to start your PSP web browsing experience. All you have to do is configure your PSP to use 188.8.131.52 as its primary DNS server and everything else falls into place. However, this also means your PSP is under the control of the person who is running this service, and when the service goes away, so does your connection!
If you are a tinfoil hat-wearing privacy PSP user, then you might want to know that each time the PSP connects to the Wipeout Pure website, it also passes a unique identifier. For this reason we wanted to provide you with a more permanent solution that puts the control in your hands, and also simplifies the procedure to allow the average user PSP web browser access.
