    Esteemed homebrew developer Dark_AleX has released PSP custom firmware 4.01 M33. In addition to minor bug fixes, this edition of the M33 firmware series of course brings 4.01 kernel support, complete with multi-language support for Recovery Mode. Instructions can be found in the included readme on how to translate the recovery text to your native language. And no, this release does not include in-XMB recovery or savestate support. As Alek noted last week, those enhancements are still planned but will likely be added in a forthcoming update.

    As usual, the firmware update can be applied directly via Network Update if you are running a previous release from 3.80 M33 and onward, or by following the manual installation instructions below, provided that you have a homebrew capable PSP.[blockquote2]* Extract the archive. * Copy included UPDATE folder to X:/PSP/GAME
    * Place the official firmware 4.01 update EBOOT, named as 401.PBP, in the newly created UPDATE folder
    * Begin installation from the Game menu.[/blockquote2]If you require a more in-depth installation walkthrough, look here. Additionally, a 4.01 M33 specific 1.5 kernel add-on is due to be released within the next couple days, possibly tonight.

    Hey, does the new recovery supports unicode and right to left text? (for foreign languages)
  6. x3sphere

    Right to left text shouldn't be a problem but I'm not sure if Unicode is supported. Best to just try it.

    I don't wanna upgrade yet.
    but what I mean in RTL text is:
    In English, we write from LTR, in some other languages, we write from RTL.

    Is that what you also mean?

    Yeah I know what you mean. It shouldn't be a problem, Unicode support is the only thing I am unsure on.

    ok thanks.
    Can you explain me how the translator works?
    (Like, opening a source file and editing, or it's a text file etc...)
    Because I really don't wanna download this untill:
    1. My favorite CXMB theme will be on 4.01
    2. I'll insure all my homebrews from 3.90 will work with the 4.01 kernel (alot of NID changes as i've heard)
    3. That's pretty much all:D

    It's just a standard text file that you'll need to edit. Each line corresponds to one of the recovery menu items.

    <p>2 questions:
    1- Does the fatmsmod work with this CFW? (Or did Sony fixed it?)
    2-Does the popsloader work?</p>
  12. x3sphere

    Using the patched fatmsmod PRX hasn't been tested, though it probably wouldn't work. As for popsloader, a new version is in the works.

    <p>mravec, you need a homebrew compatible psp to be able to upgrade to custom firmware. you need to use pandora's battery to upgrade to 3.90 m33 and from there upgrade to 4.01 m33.</p>
