    Since the key/upgrade issue was fixed, has anything else come out, or is chronoswitch on 09G considered safe enough to recommend as a standard method for getting a perm hack on 09G?

    Trying to simplify the guides a bit.

    Personally I don't think any downgrades at all are a recommended method for non-Pandorable PSP's - too much can go wrong during the process, especially when a newbie performs it, to recommend it to anyone and recovery is not an option... but yeah, 09G appears to be compatible with Chronoswitch.

    Chronoswitch uses the same method as OFW updates (literally, it launches the OFW update software), where flash0 is dismounted and re-written, so as far as that is concerned it has the same risks as an OFW update.

    I suppose, I suppose, but it still voids the warranty and is potentially dangerous unlike an OFW update.

    According to Davee, it's compatible, so if you feel like updating, go ahead.

    Was just wondering if any other issues have cropped up since the original (the original being why I disregarded the method as safe in the first place).

    The articles I've read so-far state that the issues were resolved, but hey - it's downgrading. You never know. :P

    Welp, I'll list it as a way for people who have a 09G and really hate being temp to get perm if they want.
