    "In the underground world of PSP, there are currently 2 motherboards that cannot install custom firmware, the PSP Slim & Lite motherboard TA-088 v3 and their counterpart, the TA-090 motherboard in the PSP-3000. Both are distinguished by the fact that the TA-088 v3 can start in service mode, but it is impossible to save any custom firmware because it checks in the hardware.

    For the PSP-3000, it is impossible to start a Pandora battery and there is no doubt that the same security checking IPL has been put in place.

    Dark_Alex has commented on this security check IPL... to learn more, see the news Dark_AleX explains the safety of TA-88 v3. A developer, hitherto unknown, brokencodes, found the signature used by TA 088v3 and just published it.

    We can therefore expect the next release of a Despertar Del Cementerio adding support for TA 088v3 and hopefully in the future, a future PSP-3000 hack."

    A future PSP-3000 hack, which means it has traveled back in time.

    And that's why the PSP is awesome [​IMG]

    sony should just hire him and pay him a hefty sum to develop exclusively for them.

    but i doubt he would take the offer.

    It's funny how people are like "ZOMG YAY DARK_ALEX" when he didn't even do it... It was brokencodes...

    Not to mention the rampant and mindless shouting of the words "custom firmware" that hits pretty much any thread about homebrew on a system.
