    Zer01ne, mainly known for MyCCF and some other plugins has announced something more interesting. A PSP CFW.

    His "Project Open Idea" is to develop a cfw including ideas and suggestions of users from the PSP community. Project Open Idea is a community project which aims to expand the selection of custom firmwares by offering yet ANOTHER cfw to add to list of existing ones already.

    Obviously, This is not a one day project and so he will continue the project until he finishes. But he also requests other developers to assist him in the development.

    The developer has announced features such as:

    It is an ambitious project and we all hope he succeeds.

    My french does suck. I have tried to make it english understandable as possible so it is not a direct translation.

    I thought all homebrew/pirating related stuff we're made by ideas from different people.
    That's what they take suggestions for right.

    I'm pretty sure there's not a single capable hacker except the good ol' DAX able to crack the preIPL out there.
    The 3000 seems a lost cause nowadays. Which is a shame, since I'd love to buy one to upgrade from my fat PSP :|

    I hate those things. I refuse to call them CFWs [​IMG]

    I can't stand having to reset 4-5 times just to get ChickHEN right, then load this "temporary" thingy.

    They should've just cracked the preIPL in the first place, instead of giving us something like that [​IMG]

    agreed and since old psp's are rare nowadays somewhere....
    even i had to get stuck with a ta-088v3 motherboard -_-
    it is a good idea to crack that motherboard because at this rate cfw is lost [​IMG] for the people who got 088v3 and above (2k latest and 3k)

    its kinda risky since there may be too many suggestions and waiting which will result into annoyance... though if it is controlled, the project will develop very well

    I wish people people would stop acting like DAX is a god of some kind, the are plenty of people that could do it out there, it is just most of them don't have the time / cant be bothered to do something like this because they have good jobs.

    DAX is not a god. I was just stating he was the only one out there which had the persistence to do something like that.

    Next time please don't read too much in what others write. Kthx.

    Does "Anti-Pirated ISO Security" mean it'll detect if ISOs being played are pirated?

    I think it means that say a game like Birth By Sleep is played which has anti-piracy measure, it will detect it. At least from my understanding anyway.

    telecharges = download
    ISO = ...iso
    securite = security (obviously....)
    contre = against

    so if you put the together, it would be "One security against the ISO download"

    I assume it will not allow you to play downloaded isos..

    My psp 1001 can't play disc anymore. If you can't play ISOs with it, what is the point of it? I bet this "Anti-Pirated ISO Security" blocks store ISOs bought from the psn has aside effect. SCREW NOT SO OPEN CFW! I'll be staying with GEN

    You don't know what you're saying. PSN games don't come on .iso formart and people have been saying that "Anti-Pirated ISO Security" is just a mistranslation. Also no one made you change firmware.

    A lot of these terms are screwed up if you interpret them literally, "copy protection" would mean protecting copies literally, etc.

    in fact, even in French it's still not very understandable.

    "a security against downloaded ISO" sounds like it will prevent iso from booting (what is the purpose then? custom firmware only for homebrew maybe?)
    or it could be a (bad) way of telling "bypassing the AP check".

    I don't think it can detect downloaded against self-dumped iso, so they could have labeled it only "iso" instead of "downloaded iso".
    I don't get the point here


    Edit :
    I read their forum regarding this news, it's indeed a way to prevent the custom firmware from booting iso, they think Sony would accept the firmware more easily (or something like that. it's not stated clearly).

    They're making a point about CFW not being Piracy related. Not being able to play downloaded ISO's and only self dumped ones (via some form of random key creation on dump) is an expected thing at this point.

    Kind of like Davee's refusal to craft an ISO Loader for ChickHEN.
