I'm so sick and tired of reading the word piracy.
How sanctimonious are you people?
You basically make it a hobby to break DRM which is just as bad as piracy.
And then you type things like filthy pirates.
If people buy a PSP ...
Then only run Homebrew on it ...
It still kills Sony's business model.
It's just as bad as stealing the PSPs off of the shelf.
hacker == pirate
Nonsense... I bought my PSP1000 on the day of NorthAmerican launch, purchased lumines and RidgeRacer, then never updated firmware because I knew my 1.50 OFW would be hacked shortly. The FolderName-%-trailing thing came out and I was playing homebrew ever since. Didn't pirate a thing. Played old japanese Capcom Arcade games that I wouldn't otherwise *ever* get my hands on - same goes for the bunch of old Nintendo roms that I play. *Nobody* today is selling the games I play via homebrew. Intense-playing of Lumines peaced-out the Dpad on my PSP1000. So, I've got my PSP3000 with 5.01OFW and I'm currently looking at the dust-covered device on my table. Other than to quickly test the TIFFhelloworld thing, I'm waitin' on anything that gives me my Capcom CPS2 & NesterJ emulation back.
BTW, I invite everyone to play this game... it's in Capcom Sports Club and you need CPS2 Emulation for it. YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
