Looks like Team M33 & Dark Alex are going to be removing/disabling support of the 1.50 kernel add-ons for their Custom PSP Firmwares starting with the release of M33 4.0 sometime this week.
I can understand the move. Pretty much anything you needed the kernel for is working on current firmwares now (emulators, etc.), and it works for phat psps anyway which are becoming a rarer commodity. Keep on trucking Alex & M33, hopefully everything works with 4.00m33
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Wait, I don't even know what this means (do I care? I should research this) Agrees and bubbles to you and the next three replies to your comment
Agrees and bubbles to The Phantom Agree, and the next three replies to my comment.
I've not been following Alex latelty, looks like he's into some good things though. Need to read up on it. Go M33!
Woot LJ handing out bubbles!! I cant wait for the 4.0 though. Wanna keep playing my old nes games.
As agreed bubbles and agrees for you
Piracy is killing the PSP.
Or helping it flourish, its a gray area. Piracy isn't as rampant as people believe. As a psp pirate myself I can say its quite the involved and complicated process for the Slim. The phat was very easy to hack but that was the past.
Killing?? is because Dark Alex that the PSP is not dead right now
That is definitely killing the psp. NOT! Its nice to try out any game before buying though. That probably decreases a few sales since I can steer clear of crappy games.
i wouldnt even buy a psp if it wasnt for dark alex
very true. i wouldn't have bought a psp if it wasn't for Dark Alex and Team M33
I researched everything on M33 firmware.surprized myself,chopped up the battery to make a pandora battery. Downgraded from Ofw 3,70 to M33 2,80 then to M33 3,70 ,and the rest is history.why? I dont copy psp games,nope.but. . .I do. . .love playing Dino Crisis 2 and Gran Turismo 2 on the go :D ,and btw,Dark Alex,dude,u and Team M33 are a bunch of geniuses. Keep up the great work. Lol Sony and M33. their like I.S.A Vs Helghast lol. m33 is the I.S.A Lol.
I knew there was something missing from my psx collection on my psp. I completely forgot about Gran Turismo 2. Definitely playing that on the plane this Thursday.
Dark Alex should now concentrate on PS3...
no way, that will kill the ps3. the psp is selling units because people can customize them the way they want and have it on it the go. they want to customize it because sony doesnt have anyone driving them to add sweet features to it. the cost of this hacking is more units are sold but fewer games are being sold, thus making devs stay away from losing money and thats why the psp doesnt have as many great games. now the ps3 on the other hand has microsoft and sony trying to outdo one another. sony is adding features left an right but it already has problems getting devs to make games because its still behind in the overall sales. devs will be even less likley if they know there is a chance their game will be pirated. thats even less money and those ps3 games cost way more to develop than psp games. plus the cost to get a bluray burner and bluray discs to copy games would make you need to burn about 20 or 30 games to break even.
