    Finally, I might be able to get this one this time!

    Eat me. It's an expression meaning "The community".

    No, the game will get removed from the PSN and updated, same as the last 2 times.

    Do you mean "bite me"? I never heard of the expression "eat me" before (although googling the phrase did provide a video of an attractive young lady singing along suggestively to a rap song titled "Eat Me Out").

    Oh, it's just an expression I've been using for years now. I don't think it's all that popular besides the phrase you mentioned.

    These exploits might allow unsigned code, but they're pointless imo.... I mean Sony just simply blocks the exploits they're using in just a firmware release and also makes sure that they pull out the game before a lot of people get their hands on the exploitable game.

    Well it lets you run PSP homebrew, so it's not entirely pointless. Imagine playing GBA games on that beautiful OLED screen!

    Sure you get to emulate retro games on a beautiful OLED screen, but you will be forced to update to their next firmware once they release it and you'll lose the exploit's functionality.

    You're only forced to update if you want to use the PSN or Content Manager. You also get a bunch of PSP homebrew that works as well, so like I said it's not 100% pointless.

    You can still use the Content Manager if you patch the Content Manager Assistant with Open CMA.

    Here's an idea: if you want PSP homebrew, get a PSP!

    Doesn't the emulated PSP environment kinda defeat the purpose of the OLED? ...or am I missing something? Probably the latter.

    Uhh...it only has one screen, the OLED. It's not like it can emulate a LCD screen :rolleyes: lol.
