PSP - Image 1

We’ve had a lot of updates about this one (not to mention some PSP scene drama on the side), and now it’s finally out: the highly-anticipated 3.80 M33 Custom Firmware for our Sony PlayStation Portables, from none other than the treasure vaults of Dark AleX and Team M33. After delays, bugfixes, and the occasional appetite-whetting, we can now finally unlock the fullest potential of our own PSPs. Awesome!

If you’ve been keeping up with the news, then you’d know about the brand-spanking new features in this new firmware. But for the sake of completion, here’s the changelog:

  • HEN core: user mode can load now signchecked files from flash.
  • recovery: flash1 format will create flash1 directories after format.
  • This could fix some flash1 issues with the previous versions.
  • Network update from dark-alex.org page. By default is enabled. You can turn it off in recovery (when off, network update will download sony updates as usual).
  • Nids resolver for various kernel libraries.

Now, don’t get too excited. While this IS the latest firmware, it carries with it the same risks and dangers of updating. Please be sure to read up and get yourself up to speed with the updating process before doing anything. This includes perusing the included readme file included in the archive.

Make sure you guys give thanks to Dark AleX and Team M33! With that, enjoy!

*Update* We hear from NorthenFusion in our forums that Dark AleX has given some clarifications on CFW 3.80 M33. As some have reported, they’ve already encountered some problems upon installing the latest custom firmware. Here’s what DAX has to say:
