    Everyone already knows this. What people really want to know is WHY, so they can finally close the door on the subject.

    Maybe he stopped because the other two left and felt like he had no support and it was basically no fun any more?
    Well, that's my take on it, people will disagree obviously

    Rumours have it that he is currently employed by Sony to help find bugs and exploits and stuff. Note that it's a rumour and i don't believe that rumour anyways..

    EDIT: typo..

    If Sony found DA, Sony will definitely put charge on him for releasing CFW, not employing him to find bugs, etc.

    Actually a buddy of mine said that
    DA was originally employed by Sony
    but when sony was cutting people from work
    the had Alex as one of the people that got
    fired.... Dark Alex Wanted Revenge and he created
    the CFW and Sony Hired him back b/c
    they didnt want him to ruin the PSP anymore
    DA was and still the creator of Sonys OFW on the
    psp

    Obviously it's bullshit. I guess that when those two developers left Team M33, everything was alot harder to do and people were making ridiculous requests and was being under alot of pressure. Chances are, i don't think we'll see DA involved in the PSP Scene again. We can both look forward to the GEN firmware and the Open Idea firmware.

    bloody hell, all this speculation gets everyone nowhere, for all you know he could have been hit by a damn bus and no one on-line would know any better.

    This is mainly bullshit. If DA was actually the guy who made the original OFW it would have gotten out by now, easy.

    The O in OFW stands for Official.
