    Default Dark Alex Not releasing a downgrader?

    This is just something I've been thinking. As we all saw, a month or so ago the gripshift exploit was discovered. a few weeks later, it was found that the creater of the GEN firmwire has kernel acess, after this happened DA got angry and explained he gave it to him, and that he could no longer trust him. So my question... Why is it he hasn't released it, if he has acess to the kernel? wouldn't it mean he'd have the correct files for pandora if he has kernel acess. So I was thinking it's been a few weeks and no word from him. Is it possible he's holding it off, to allow the psp to get better this year, rebuild it's rep. and leave it as fat psps and older slims will be the only ones that will be hackable? Or perhaps sony sent him something?

    I mean, otherwise why would he care that someone even released a video showing kernel access?

    I've just been wondering this, what do you guys think?

    Now the downgrader wouldn't downgrade PSP but rather directly install CFW.
    As for why there's no downgrade I'm not sure of the reason.

    If you mean the PSP hardware, I wouldn't think so because new firmware already have it patched.

    No, I meant to allow for more game teams to come in and start working on the PSP again. Because, as we've all seen this year looks really good for the PSP, so what would have happened if he had released a downgrader / pandora for the ta088v3 mother board?

    it more then likley is he has the firmwares without the patch running just fine with the gripshift exploit, but he probably is trying to figure out how the pre-ipl works so he can come out with another pandora....

    Have you ever thought that he might be working on a more sustainable exploit? Like you've heard many times, they have heaps of unreleased downgraders etc, but are saving it for when there are new fixes from sony. Maybe there are things that don't work? IDK, and honestly, he has a life, he can't devote everything to psp.

    Jesus guys, I didn't mean to make this seem impatient, I don't even care about the 3000 getting hacked. I was just making this post to see what people thought.

    I personally hope nothing is released until the end of the year. The reason I say this is for the hope of a better line-up of games for this year and maybe next year. Seems like Sony is pushing this year for that better line-up.

    btw gunman only you care about your firmware history

    Umm... That was a bit off topic. I put it there so I remember what firmwires I've been on. But I'm glad you decided your opinion is the same as everyone elses.
