    The non-permanent hackable PSP 3000 09g (current retail motherboard) looks like it is about to get a status change:

    This means that light-cfw PSPs might soon have a permanent cfw solution if Davee releases this!
    Thanks to Davee for this awesome development! [​IMG]

    Released! (open beta)

    Download link is at the bottom of Davee's blog entry (which is a very interesting read).

    Updated: Downgrader + Frostegater upgrade fix.

    Pretty nice, not that it matters to me since I have a fully hackable one [​IMG].

    The fascinating thing about this is that it was supposed to be impossible for a PSP to have a firmware lower than its factory default. The 09g has 6.30 as its default firmware.

    DaveeFTW indeed.

    Interesting, but doesn't concern me with mah PSP 1004 and PSP Go. Nevertheless nice to see that there is good development going on with different types of hardware [​IMG]

    If it's lower than the default then it may not be a clean 6.20, it may just have later modules inserted.

    Since the important part of that chat was between Larry94 and Davee, I edited out all the noise for clarity.
    Looks like Larry was skeptical of this thread so he showed Davee the link, Davee looked at the thread, and saw nothing wrong with it. Agree?

    Furthermore, upon reading Davee's twitter again, he has since revealed that he will release the new downgrader soon! [​IMG]

    unbrick wiis and psps which have been called unbrickable lately. even a simple hardware mod will do.

    I never did like that butt ugly bumps at the back, as well as the screen.

    It's funny...of all the hacks, whilst one of the most accomplished, it's also the least essential. It allows impatient people to install a permanent version of a CFW when before they had temporary. It doesn't unlock the PSP any more at the moment (though this may follow) and as soon as 6.20CFW's fall behind it'll become mostly redundant.

    Great work but massive fanfare for little real change to the majority of users.

    Was just about to ask about if this makes a difference when comparing 6.60 temporary and 6.20 permanent. Thanks for the info!

    PS. Another, could ya add that piece of info to the original post? For people who're confused about what's the fuzz about and are too lazy to go through all comments before replying to this thread.
