UPDATE: Ok, some of you guys seem to be getting confused. Clarification: This is in no way a way to facilitate downgrading, upgrading, or in any way “hacking” any firmware versions.

One of our forum members, ritterrav, has done an interview with Discordia on their upcoming PSP shell program. Interesting to note is that he hopes to have it released before college on September 4th. Here?s the story:?

ritterrav: So, can you tell us, what your making, and why.

Discordia: I am making a new shell for the sony psp, to give the users a new look and feel instead of the old boring menu system sony has given us. It will give the user a feel to something they are more comfortable with, as it resembles windows in a way. It will also allow 1.5 users to only have to deal with 1 eboot file instead of 2 separate folders. I am making this to help the community and to give myself some good programming practice.

ritterrav: Ok, so besides making it more homebrew friendly, what other features are you adding?

Discordia: It will have usb support, mp3 playback, homebrew launching, umd launching, full customization – wallpaper, the gui bars, icons – everything you see on screen can be edited to your liking. I will also be adding some wifi functionality, as well as IR port for a built in tv remote, as well as a handful of small homebrew apps built in such as file browser, address book, calendar, etc… and probably more that I cant think of at the moment.

ritterrav:Ok, for the noobs… Will this over write the original OS?

Discordia: no it wont, it will be launched once like a normal homebrew application and then you will not have to launch it again. When you exit out of homebrew games or umd games it will go straight back to my shell, not sony’s os.

ritterrav: One more noob question, What firmware version will this work on?

Discordia: this will work on any firmware version that can boot homebrew. As of August 19th, 2005, the only firmware versions that can boot homebrew are 1.0 and 1.5. Maybe by the time this is released, homebrew will be working on higher versions, but as of now, only 1.0 and 1.5.

ritterrav: ok, so how long have you been working on this “Shell”?

Discordia: well, if you saw the latest 3 videos i released a while back, that was 3 days into working on it. Since then I have been on vacation in Canada. Now that im back in the USA, I have been getting ready for college, having not much time to work on the shell. However, I was able to put a good amount of time into it today and yesterday. It looks like I’ll be having more time shortly..soo total time worked on the shell so far, about 5 days.

ritterrav:Ok, so do you see a release day insight at all?

Discordia: Well.. not an exact date, but i am really shooting to get it out before I leave for college, which is on September 4th. So hopefully before then =)?
