    So I use temporary CFW of the PRO kind. I first turned my PSP on so CFW wouldn't have been applied yet, but accidentally chose an old paused game I had from months ago. When I exited the game my CFW was applied and all of my homebrew worked fine, despite me never applying the CFW. What's that all about? Does the pause game feature also take the PSP back to the state it was in when you made it? Just wondering how exactly it works, and if I might've screwed anything up.

    That's normal . The only time the temp cfw gets deleted is when you shutdown the psp .

    ^ Might be it, last time I accidentally started a paused game from a full power down (unloaded 6.39 PRO), the game just didn't start.

    If that isn't it, you might have signed homebrew? Did all your other games in ISO format work too?

    Guessing here, Rydian or xist can tell me if I'm wrong :3

    Pausing your game saves everything in the RAM and since semi-CFW is in the RAM, it saves that.

    Well, I just tried it and it worked, loaded a bit slower than usual but prowler_'s explanation makes sense here.

    Edit: Even on 6.20 PRO perma, I unloaded it first. It deleted the hibernation file though.
