Dark AleX's Time Machine: Install 1.50 kernel on your PSP Slim


"Sony PlayStation Portable homebrew developer Dark AleX has certainly contributed a lot to the handheld homebrew scene, and his latest project is certainly looking to be quite the contribution indeed. Introducing the Time Machine, a handy app that installs the 1.50 kernel onto your PSP Slim. Yes, that's what it does, and there's a video to prove it, too!"

Yesssss! no more magic memory card!

Dark AleX i salute you sir! Sony need to give this dude a job!!

Well I think still Magic Memory Card + Jigkick

I guess this Time Machine will be an add-on to install within a already custom firmware 3.xx Slim to switch to 1.50 if nescessary.

I thought 1.5 kernel would not work, because of the new PSP Slim's hardware is uncompatable.

But if it is true, good news for PSP Slim users.

Obviously it's now discovered that it does work, that was the thought before.

I'm a little nervous about this. Allowing the 1.50 kernal will probably stop developers from taking advantage of the slim's extra RAM and keep everything at the phat level. Good and bad I guess.

Nah don't think so. If a developer sees a change to improve the application with the 64MB space of the Slim, they'll do so because of the appreciation they get from the users.

The good thing is, homebrew that hasn't been developed anymore since 1.50 and is great, is now within the hands of the Slim users. More and more Slims are sold and will be sold for a long time, so the number of those out will outdo the Fat PSP's and be the main developing platform.

If you had the choice:

Make a good app on 32MB

or make a great app on 64MB

What would you choose?

Skype seems to be an example of Sony themselves. I am excited though to have a whole bunch of software homebrew that didn't ran on my Slim up till now to test out when Time Machine/1.50 is released by the mighty DAX!

I'm such a noob. I still don't know how to do all that homebrew stuff. There needs to be a place I can go get this done! LOL!! You can tell I'm an American. :)

Update just came in:

Time Machine also does 2.70 on Slim with Flash 6. Question is why you would want to use it though I can't figure it out yet. Because 3.xx has Flash 6 also, right?

1.50 is logical, but 2.70? Anyhow, the Time Machine seems magic. My God Dark Alex knows the PSP better then Sony themselves which is pretty funny
