    I'm glad its happening, because of PHA psps like late 2000s and 3000s. From my understanding, you cant flash them because the way XMB works on them is different, but thats a non-issue if you're not using it in the first place. Which would mean I dont have to rely on sleep mode all the time.

    If I'm wrong, then that sucks but its still a good project and I want to see it go far.

    I'm afraid there's going to be no way to flash this into memory just as there's no way of flashin CFW on a late 2000 and 3000. This is due to the motherboard and not the firmware as Sony have blocked an exploit in the hardware which used to be used to access the flash.

    That's incorrect Jamstruth...it's the Pre-IPL and IPL that are causing the issues. You can flash whatever you want to a latter day 2000 or 3000 if you've gained access via the Chickhen, but once done unless you're only making a tiny and safe edit then you're in a big danger of bricking it.

    Since this is just a new XMB, and NOT a totally new OS it won't be a new hack for the "difficult" PSP's...
