    Confused by Sony.

    Why did they leave 1.00 and 1.50 completly open to homebrew? The only
    reason I can think of for closing it up is to stop ISOs from loading. But did
    they not think that people would do this if they could load their own code?

    So originally firmware was open but now they are closing up every security
    hole that they find! Could they not just spend more time trying to block
    ISOs and then let homebrew run as normal? Not that I want them to block
    ISOs, but that would let us be happy with homebrew and them be happy
    that we can't rip them off.

    Do they not learn either? Eloader on 2.X was loaded originally using GTA.
    Should they not have done everything in their power to stop anything from
    being loaded by GTA? Their lazyness just landed themsleves with a user
    and kernel exploit for 3.x , hopefully soon a downgrader for 3.03 too!

    Sony are just to hard to figure out! Changing their mind all over!

    What do you guys think about all this?


    I don\'t give a crap about your firmware history

    the only way there going to block bugs is to employ DAX (which aint happening)

    I know this is a banned phrase but

    Quoted for Greatness.

    No joke, DAX, Matheliul (make a better EASIER to spell name!) and Noobz, and also, not to mention Team C+D, are all the GODS of the PSP. Right now, every PSP to date, can downgrade. Well, not the TA-082 users i think.

    That's what I said. Block ISOs, not homebrew. Or make a better protection on the UMDs so we can't copy them.

    They didn't. 1.00 could only run 1.00 encrypted PRXs, but they made a mistake...

    1) Sony wants people to buy games - eg make the PSP not useful. If the PSP were too useful by itself, then there would be less incentive to buy games, wouldn't there?
    2) You can't simply just block ISOs.
