    Sweet! I may have to upgrade from 3.71-M33 for this...! (I still haven't updated since installing a few months back because I have yet to find the need to.)

    It came out last week. Look here!

    If you plan to upgrade to 4.00-M33, wait at least a month.

    Why? The save state thing will be buggy as hell first, and it will also throw a monkey wrench into the plug-ins behavior.

    If you give it a month, most of the bugs will be reported and quashed. New versions of plug-ins will also be released.

    Thanks for the tip! I always try to wait out the trial and errors of the first few weeks when it comes to stuff like this!

    I can't wait. Sleep mode is ok, but what isn't fun is getting stuck in a game and having WiFi, but you can't exit to go online for a guide.

    Now THIS is definitely worthy of a 1.xx boost from the previous firmwares. =P

    Did you know that CWCheat has an in-game, multi-file text reader that can be assigned to a hotkey?

    I just hope it has a 1.5 Add-on to come along with it...most of the Hbrew I use is kind of dated, and no one has updated anything(File Assisstant, pepViewer, some other comicbook app, and thats mainly it)

    and some old SNESty9x 2.42me or something

    Yeah, but I could never get it to work. Maybe I have to have a - between the UCUS and numbers?

    Wow, this is awesome news. I definitely can't wait for this release.

    I'm with the poster that suggested it though, I'll definitely be waiting another release or two to upgrade. I only use one seplugin, but I'm sure the save states will be pretty buggy. So I'll wait until they get that ironed out.

    From what I've observed the PSP custome firmware use the firmware that the custom one was based upon as the primary version number, to which the "make", e.g. M33, of PSP custom firmware was added, and THEN they used a 3rd number to denote a version within the custom firmware itself.

    So I'd really expect it to be something like 3.88-M33-4?

    I'm also expecting this to be incredibly buggy as well, since the PSP has so much more memory than the DS, and runs alot of extra things in memory as well as the game, so they'll have to be careful to only save game-related memory state info and register info. Not to mention the states will be relatively huge files, as if they just try to do a raw complete memory dump plus registers you'd end up with either 32MB + change or 64MB plus change RTS files, although I really thinkt hat trying to save the state of plugins and other things probably just isn't going to work so I'd expect the RTS to be smaller once it works well, maybe the could add on the fly save compression to it as well on the PSP.
