You may not be aware of what happened in the PSP scene these days, if you are you can still play but n'embêtez your friends ... In any case Professor Pyroh will have to decipher it all for you.
In the beginning
The PSP is marketed since 2004 and is the version 1.00 firmware that could begin to run homebrews, so quickly after its release. Then they swore not more than 1.50 firmware which really allowed to do everything as we wanted. But some had updated their PSP as construction and could not therefore benefit from the underground scene. Flaws were discovered (in the lib tiff it seems to me) and saw the HEN (Homebrew Enabler for) that would do almost the same but with manipulation to make first. It was a bit wobbly, some have their beautiful brick PSP gained for the price of a kidney and half the time, he needed an alternative, more sustainable and simple.
Arriving on his white horse, Dark_Alex, who had already done some stuff above-proposes a method for the PSP downgrader and return to good and beautiful firmware 1.50. This has 3 effects on the small world the PSP is to allow everyone to enjoy the scene, for its PSP Bricker more easily and bring down the price of 1.50 on ebay while also showing more models in a perfect state of brick.
The 1.50 was good but it was a time, it was not all "progress" of other more advanced firmwares. Essential features of the web browser rapellant how it was good to surf the net in 1997 and how Sony's engineers were wrong in terms of virtual keyboard. It was not counting on the PS1 emulation which appeared with the + / -3.00, it had to be done. Dark_Alex and Roy (yes, Roy, on the horse is the Prince, he married Princess and jumps and takes the throne, logic) asked his blessing once again and released the first custom firmware, a rainy Thursday.
Custom Firmware or CF is like a 1.50 but with 3.00 in it. Basically we get the interesting thing in version 2 and are mixed to make a super firmware that allows running homebrew (and ISOs too, I assure you) but, and it is good, it also incorporates the killer Sony made in feature! It was at first, now do FC after more than 1.50 in, you must install it separately as a plugin.
All this was great and everything went for mieu in the best of worlds, we had our PSP was everything we wanted and we had better not need to pay 3 of interesting games 'Then, on the Memory Stick ... Brickées the PSP and their owners were crying. Dark_Alex has disappeared and he said I quit. No serious M33 the Russian team took over the baton some time later.
A new wind
It came from the east wind, it was again called M33, it emerged as the new firmware King Dark_Alex or not ... In fact it was he who was behind all this, the rascal. In short, as in "The Return of the King" he returned. It was a gentle breeze, in fact, the real blow for change came when we realized that we had at Sony planqué of something in the battery for the valuable débricker PSP came SAV (all paying huh ).
Today is born the Pandora battery and Magic MS (also a Thursday). It would débriquer any PSP but also to install the firmware we wanted it, freedom, true! Once served by our friend Dark_Alex everything went very well. And the PSP Slim & Lite (PSP 2000) has arrived. Ben, in fact we do not care the Pandora's also walked over, no worries. Thereafter Dark_Alex released their kit Despertar Del Cimentario (yes it is a bit from there) which made things easier, the Swiss Army knife for PSP wholesale, and its firmware. You can do anything with downgrade, débrick, coffee and tea. It was beautiful.
This is where ca se corse
Another Thursday the PSP 3000 came and there was the tragedy. Sony has finally understood that its PSP was hackée to stem the evil and that "pirates" unofficial top for far too long! The kit Pandora did not work above, no custom firmware, forced to stay on as official said, obliged to pay its games (I exaggerate not there). The situation seemed desperate qu'allait take Roy for his kingdom? Ben, like all monarchs installed too: making shit to show who is the head.
The winds of discord
At the time firmware 3.XX we saw coming _HellDashX_ new on the scene and, oh heresy, walking on the beds of the government. Released a firmware 3.72HX who sparked a controversy. The author had it, as claimed Dark_Alex only stole the job to him and changed a little bit to make sure the files fame and fortune? Frankly we do not care a bit, the user is a winner with the opening to competition and the 3.72 was shunned by Dark_Alex who did not 3.72CF version. Nevertheless _HellDashX_ was hated by the scene and its firmware scrapped.
It is well to be a sort of supremacy of DA (Dark_Alex) at the scene PSP, despite the attempts to justify _HellDashX_ did nothing and the people remain attached to DA, he was right to say whatever _HellDashX_ was wrong and was a dirty thief saint of work and deserved to be hanged high and short! It would seem that he has stolen anything at all and he has worked as a single.
It's the site pspgen.com who threw another big stone into the pond Royal. Remember PSPGEN is an open site for some time and met the French PSP scene. There are other sites available gen I let you discover them through links on the site. Note that the gen sites are not always equal in terms of quality content and that's a shame. This is cronyism over, therefore PSPGEN another Thursday released a firmware stamped GEN. Rather, it is past, they are friends with over-DA therefore all is well again, all this competition ... What is interesting to note is that the author of the firmware even if it was limited at the outset appears to be a miriam hitherto unknown to the battalion. Finally, if you will, but later is better than Dallas.
And the industry is to put the game out bad but interesting: Grip Shift. The particularity of this game is that a backup changed little on the run on the PSP homebrew incrackables because of motherboard or protected because it is a PSP 3000. It provides that:
It is doing eh? But it is a good beginning, it must be stressed. This is not the first time a flaw is a game used for these purposes, GTA already had at the time allowed to do that.
However this finding is rather positive and HEN is well considered. Thus the developer house PSPGEN, Miriam, has begun to work and made a PSPGEN news to show that it worked (a POC or Proof Of Concept). Here it is too Roy is unhappy and decides to any rotting.
How to loose friends and alienate people
The current situation at present is not really pretty. First DA wrote a post to express his dissatisfaction Royal:
Quote from: Ladies and gentlemen, Roy
This is about this.
This is about how I trusted someone called "Miriam" and I gave him a kernel exploit of C + D, which was found by joek (the only one that deserves credit of that), just to play for himself, as it is being used 3k modules to decrypt, but the first thing he did was to show to others to get a bit of fame.
Now I realize not to trust anyone anymore, thanks.
Basically he says he is not happy because he had given the code to make the feat possible miriam by specifying that it was right for him not to release. The code is not DA at the base, it is Joek. Nevertheless DA not use the code for releaser anything (the Roy spoke) and miriam he accuses of having launched a POC just for the fame and fortune.
This is the webmaster of Alek dark-alex.org who set foot in the dish with a post in which he revealed the true identity of miriam the _HellDashX_ terrible! Diantre of twists. It is the main person who speaks better:
Quote from: miriam
I will not attempt to classify Dark_Alex as a liar because nobody would believe me, then I'll try to explain a likely scenario to explain this false accusation. I suppose I owe you some explanations after qu'aleK me so kindly (cough) called by my old nickname for a more "flamming.
I will not deny that I am _HellDashX_ but I doubt the fact that this is due to a lie. _HellDashX_était My nickname (Miriam) and my partner Alex (Nothing to do with Alex), when we worked together on various projects including the reverse engineering of Custom Firmware. After reverse several modules, we decided to put online 3.72HX with great pleasure that has been marred by controversy over the fact that these modules were hexa-edited. They were, but the most intelligent here will understand that the patch, you must still know how they work. At the time, we had already returned vshctrl and popcorn. In the 3.73HX, this was followed PPAR a reverse of the IPL and a number of other modules, but the flaming rule continued.
After a certain period of time, we managed to get in touch with Mathieulh and Dark_AleX via MSN following the fact that we expressed hexa-published yet another project. After they have proved they were wrong, we have gained a certain level of trust with Dark_Alex during the following months.
We had to publish their downstream Leun new Custom Firmware (this time, we had fully repaid their Custom Firmware, ie all individual modules and IPL), but I did not want to see my old pseudo was cataloged, and I decided to put it online in one of our names. Miriam is, I am not articiciel and I have nothing to hide.
Now that this is cleared up, turn on the feat. I realize that only a few people believe me, but that's OK, I'll tell you my story anyway.
Several days ago, I found a vulnerability in the kernel and after several conversations with Dark_Alex about it on MSN, he told me to use the same operator. I then said I was trying to install a private HEN but some things do not work, and asked for some advice. Despite this help, I still can not run but a developer friend arrived with another solution that has proved functional. A little later, I received the code of its own exploit via MSN, but this time the HEN was already functioning at 95% and based on my own code. Dark_Alex then asked me not to publish the exploit kernel, but to look for another, what I observed in not issuing the current version of HEN in public.
However, under pressure from some people, I gave MaGiXieN to make a video of HEN in action, but without revealing details. That is exactly what has been done. Nobody, apart MaGiXieN and me, does this launcher homebrew / ISO, and I am the only one to know how.
We would have appreciated if Dark_Alex had at least mentioned this on this problem via MSN but it has stalled. There was absolutely no reason to get this message in public, to reveal my identity and making false accusations, without even a word exchange.
I was looking in the firmware Another flaw to discover another Exploit Kernel, but I think I can get more attention. I do not need this e-drama, I have a real life, friends, family and I wish that I leave this post by saying "Goodbye".
Who's wrong is right? Nobody really knows what it is we should note the attitude of DA that I have not known Roy for nothing in this whole article. Though it was very important at the scene, continues to be, and we can only acknowledge and respect the work done over the years for the stage.
It still moves?
Where is the scene today? From a DA who does not visibly competition and using his fame to get rid of its competitors and competitors who just can not prove their good faith. The underground complex will become formal and official that the world? The user is unclear in all this. I do not want to clip the wings development on PSP 3000, because from the outside this can be noticed.
The scene is bad but is not dead and it is not the rumors of a PSP2 for 2010 that fail to give a boost to it. In any case it is not Red Squirrel which we will say the opposite, he left the scene leaving a message which are: "the PSP scene is ill, with its" boss ", its" smart "and its" Lamers ""
It is going to comment ...
