    So, as you alll may or may not already know.. 3.71 M33 is pretty much the epiphany of Sony's attempts at destroying psp homebrew/custom firmware.

    Sony came across the leaked "custom firmware" source code and made changes to their firmware to make it a lot more difficult/ impossible for DAX to add a lot of his features (recovery menu, 1.50 full support, theme support, etc) to the firmware.


    Why the fuck would SOny, in their right minds remove the KD folder? Which houses the recovery.prx!?

    That was one of the most important pieces of Custom Firmware and actually was one of the best additions to the PSP EVER... so SOny goes and removes the most important piece of firmware that is needed on a psp..hell..I bet in the next firmware Sony is going to go and release a recovery menu..or probably not..

    Well I dont really know what else to say..but jeez Sony, atleast pay some respect to the homebrew community..

    it there,
    just HIDDEN form the PC
    the flash0 has mostly hidden files

    turn on "show hidden files" and you will see it

    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    Sony probably doesn't care because even though homebrew has helped them sell more PSPs than they would have otherwise, it enables piracy. Since they make far more money on software sales than hardware sales (on which they may even be taking a loss, I don't know about the PSP, but the PS3 is being sold at a substantial loss) they could care less.

    What's funny though is that even though the overall percentage of PSP users running CFW is probably relatively small compared to the entire install base; it seems that homebrew users generally own more than one PSP. If Sony is able to kill off the homebrew scene entirely (which is highly unlikely) or at least cripple it to the point that it's no longer as big of a draw, they'll lose out on these multiple purchases.

    I've seen the point raised that the CFW community is so small that it doesn't matter...I don't buy into that completely...I wouldn't have purchased 3 PSPs without the CFW capability and based on the sigs I've seen here, I'm not the only person with more than one PSP...

    Just by friends seeing what my PSP with CFW could do gained Sony several hardware sales...of course if they're losing money on the hardware, that hurts them to some extent. On the other hand, game developers take into account the number of units sold of a platform when deciding what they're going to develop for...more quality games means more profit for Sony from users who don't pirate games (either because they don't know how, or because they choose not to).

    Umm... just to let you know, the 'recovery.prx' is not a sony module so it technically isn't there in the first place. I mean, try to enter recovery mode on an OFW.

    Besides if they did remove the 'KD' folder, DAX woulda found a way to make the module work anyways.

    Stupidity killed the cat, curiosity was framed.

    Yeah, seriously do you think Sony cares about the homebrew community? If anything they hate the homebrew community with a passion.
