    @wololo,
    Just want to say thank you all and I appreciate your work. As in my country there is no online money transferring process I cannot donate anything right now expect my good wishes to you and all the other devs. BTW I like your homebrew game “Wagic”.

    whats the procedure to donate???

  8. Joe Brown says:

    I can’t even THINK about donation until
    He release a 6.3x solution. I’m not going to pay for something and not know
    That I’m going to benefit. Christmas was ruined thanks to all of this hen bs.
    And, then to be called stupid because I got a 6.35 for Christmas, and now you
    Money? Ridiculous and he’ll fuckin NO.

    Yeah I said it.

      @Joe Brown: I understand your feelings and I’m not begging for anything. As I said, donate for the work done so far if you are satisfied, not for something you expect to happen.
      Actually what you posted is exactly what I meant: don’t get tricked by someone who will promise you the Hen for 6.35 in exchange for money.

      That being said, HBL works on your firmware and has been working on it for several weeks now…actually, a user mode homebrew loader for the PSP was never released so fast. I understand that most people are waiting for the Hen, but insulting my work (and the work of other devs involved in the HBL) is not going to take you very far in the scene.

      If you think that only TN Hen for 6.35 would deserve your money, then I guess it’s fine, but bear with me and read along:

      I’ve spent the last 3 years of my life dedicating 100% of my free time to the PSP scene, either with Wagic or with HBL or with the articles in this blog. I do this mostly for fun but sometimes it turns into actual work (for example when I have to reply to comments like yours). If you think I don’t have the right to ask for donations in exchange for 3 years of work, then I think something is wrong with you.

      Regarding your Christmas PSP. I don’t know who bought it for you, but when it comes to expensive electronics, if I were you, I’d ask Santa to be involved in the choice of your hardware. Not to insult your parents/friends or anything, but usually family doesn’t understand why you’d rather have an older model :)

      My point is that people who bought a 6.35 PSP and wanted to hack it should have made more research on the internet before buying it. The only 6.35 users who deserve sympathy from me are those who had a broken PSP that was sent to a repair centers. The other ones made a choice at some point. In your case, you made the choice of not being involved in the selection of your PSP model. You then made the choice of not returning that PSP to the shop where it was bought.

      Again, don’t donate if you’re not happy with our software, but as far as I’m concerned, I’ve proved already to 6.3x users that I’m doing the best I can for them. You have HBL and some people on the forum started reversing TN Hen to do a port.

        Holy crap! That comment alone is bigger than the article!
        You tell that poor, oblivious bastard Wololo!
        I greatly appreciate your work. I have never witnessed such devotion in my time here and you were the first to shed light on my 6.2 PSP 3000 back in the beginning of the year.
        Thank you again, mighty Wololo.

    Today I got online and went to a bunch of scene sites and saw how much fun and enjoyment the 6.20 people were having, and it put me in a very shitty mood!

    After reading your reply, i realise that it’s not your fault. But, I still dont like being called stupid and being told to shut up by someone who WANTS respect. If you want respect and $coin$ from the people you are working for, then it would be in YOUR best interest not to insult these very same people. This will keep YOU from getting far in the ‘scene’. You need to issue an apology. Period.

    TN, has never insulted anyone. No matter how much craziness he got on the nets. He may curse us out under his breath, but he continues to do the ‘work’ without malice, greed, or Jealousy. This is what will put $coin$ in HIS pocket.

    Yes, you worked hard. But, YOU chose to do this.

    In all of that, I am sorry for my tone. As well you should be for insulting the very people whom you want support from.

    6.31-6.35 users still await for a solution. This isnt going away. And, everything else will pale in comparison to that. This is just the facts of life in the psp scene right now. Playing KH:BBS on a PSP Go simply owns>>playing homebrew on a PSP Go. Real talk.

    • wololo says:

      I completely understand your feelings but I won’t issue any apology. I still believe most (not all!) people on 6.35 are people who made a choice. most (not all!) people in 6.35x are people who spit at the face of HBL (when it was available for 6.20) and homebrews in favor of PSN access and official games. That’s a choice they made, and I don’t work for this kind of people, I am not looking for support from them.

      You (Joe Brown) are in a very specific position where your firmware is not a choice you made personally, and I’m sorry this happened to you. But you probably still have the possibility to return your psp and get a different model. As I said you probably also had the possibility to be involved in the choice of the PSP when it was bought (correct me if I’m wrong).

      I bought my first PSP 4 years ago, and at that time I was clueless about the scene. But what I wanted was homebrew, so I did my research, and I made sure to get a model that worked with noobz’ eLoader at the time.

      I am not cleverer than anybody else. I just read the information that was available on the internet to get the model that fit my needs. This is what I do when I buy a 250$ piece of hardware that I expect to last for years. I think you didn’t do that, and you can’t ask me to apologize for that.

      Total_Noob has never insulted anyone publicly mostly because he has only posted a handful articles on his blog. I have posted hundreds of them, and I’m generally much more emotionally involved in what I do than your average dev, I think :)

      I’m sorry for my long and somewhat aggressive replies to you. This is nothing personal. This is 4 years of accumulated frustration towards all people who upgrade and then complain, or people who “didn’t know” and make devs responsible for not working fast enough. Believe it or not, I feel sorry for you, and this is also why I am insulting people, the same way you would insult your best friend if he intentionally jumped in front of a train (and survived).

      Yes, I used strong words. However I took extra care in my “insults” to make the precision that I wasn’t talking about “everyone”, and your case is borderline IMO.

      Nevertheless, I’ve seen countless people upgrade from 6.20 to 6.3x when HBL was available, because “it doesn’t run iso”, or because “homebrews suck”, or because they wanted psn access, or being able to play this or that game. My disrespect goes to these people. Why? Because people who don’t like HBL but demand a Hen are people who are in for piracy.

      And don’t get me wrong, it is fine to upgrade your PSP, or to buy a new one when you KNOW that you’d rather get a used one in order to check the firmware. What’s not fine it to complain afterwards.

      What I should apologize for (and I believe I did in a comment) is publicly announcing that TN Hen would be released for 6.35 when I had nothing to make sure this was true, except my trust in TN.

      Sorry again for the long post :(

  10. Joe Brown says:

    Yeah your right Wololo.
    ……im sorry. I was just angry.

    And, you have worked pretty hard. No doubt about that.

  11. Jonathan Arnould says:

    everyone who feels like Joe did should read wololos comments.

  12. noob says:

    Yeah we owe it wololo TN and the other devs out there, i hope this will inspire other noob to do the same thing in the future. thanks

  13. andrew says:

    what i like about wololo’s website is the very…white, and heavenly design. it relaxes me every time i visit your website.

    plus wololo translates things for us from pspgen.

    furthermore, wololo seems to be updated with everything that’s been going around the psp scene, which makes it very convenient for us who’s too lazy to search around google for forums and etc.

    i hope to see more great news from you
    more power WOLOLO!!!! :)

  14. noob says:

    anyone here have a problem with rockband unplugged on PSP 3K or GO? mine it shutdowns the system

  15. shien says:

    i would like to have abilities to help you and TN but… i don’t. thanks for your work wololo

  16. Zepheral says:

    I’m happy with the hbl but many of my friends online were concerned why i wasn’t online so I upgraded to 6.35(bad choice) but to be able to play mega man battle network on my psp at least thanx wololo. I’ll wait for a down grader for fw 6.35 (just hope it won’t take over 5 months) not to sound ungrateful.

  17. Alan says:

    @Joe, you don’t deserve any respect for this matter bud, you didn’t do shit, this stuff is all free, they’re not even requiring you to donate. Your christmas was ruined because it wasn’t released on time? Why don’t you try to develop something like this. Instead of bitching, just buy the real game / make your own programs.
    The fact you say you won’t donate unless 6.35 is released is pure retarded. no one demands your damn money and wololo/total noob and all the other people can charge you for it.
