    Psp firmware 4.00 released today new features include:
    * Google Search Functionality directly from the XMB.
    * Functionality allowing for altered playing speeds under [Video]
    * Added Subtitle support under [Video]

    That's about it it may not work if you try updating from your psp so just go online and look for the update if you want to update(I'm not updating since it's not worth it).

    Yea, it doesn't sound worth it to me either.

    They added features that nobody asked for.I really wanted divx support or an update to the flash player.

    Divx support is barely needed unless you're a video kinda guy. I guess it's good if you like to use your PSP as multimedia, but if you use it for gaming/browsing, it's kinda blah.

    In any case, doesn't seem worth it to me either. Googling is nice sure, but it's something I can pass on.

    I was also hoping for Divx support.

    This doesn't sound like a whole number update at all.

    That's because you haven't seen their v4.00 marketing blitz yet.

    I see no use to this update. Hopefully Dark-AleX will release 4.00 M33 and and something to make it worthwhile..

    Divx support would be awesome for me. i use it for such purposes frequently. having a 16GB memstick makes one look for other ways to fill it.

    still, DAX will have to come up with a custom firmware before i even think about it.

    DAX hasn't been working on the scene lately. Maybe he'll make a return for 4.00. Otherwise the GEN team will release their CFW as scheduled.

    Where did he say that? One of the developers mentioned that they might possibly release 4.00 M33, but that was before 3.95 even came out.

    I was so convinced they'd add divx on this update because the ps3 has divx. ah wells.

    Is it possible for custom firmware to get divx support on it?

    I remember reading about DA waiting for 4.00 before working on the M33 version. Could be wrong though.

    As for the official update, I'm underwhelmed. Doesn't seem like that big of a deal unless they did something that we're not aware of? In the way of anti-piracy anyway. D: While I doubt that, it's weird to have such a landmark number have so little in the way of new features.

    No... you have to convert videos to MP4 or someother format the PSP reads thru specific homebrew (like PMP).

    That's the most bullshit 1.XX update I've seen EVER. Major fail on Sony's part. I was expecting something EPIC.

    PSPTube can be used to watch DivX, albeit slowly. I haven't tried it myself, but maybe clocking the PSP to 333MHz could help.

    that's because him and team m33 will only be working on major updates, and since 3.93 and 3.95 didn't had any major changes,team m33 didn't bothered on making a custom firmware for those versions.
