Hmm heres the apology from the PSPhaxors website for the fake downgrader released yesterday:
On behalf of PSP-HaXors, I would personally like to apologize for the recent release of the fake TA-082 downgrader by dark_thug.
Once it was emailed to me, I was skeptical. The sizes of the so-called ".thug" files matched the sizes of the Official Sony 1.50 firmware eboot and 2.71 eboot files.
So instead of releasing a fake downgrader to the scene, I held on to it.
With no proof, I finally decided to get it tested in a live test.
Without a TA-082 PSP myself to test it, I gave it out to test to 3 people who asked for it.
When all three came back saying it worked, I released it, with the proper cautions.
Numerous people from PSP hacking sites reported success, and a few, bricks, so I assumed it was working.
That was until birdman and Dark_AleX said it was a hoax, and could neither downgrade nor brick a PSP.
It was fake, and we've all seen fakes in the past. And will probably continue to see them.
Instead of pointing fingers at the testers, it's better to just move on.
Again, I am sorry for posting it without the proper proof.

Remember all, Fakes only ruin the scene we try so hard to work for.
