This is by far my biggest project ever. It literally took years of planning, and months of development.
Although I wasn’t directly involved in most of the development phase (I was only needed for the early stages, my wife did the rest of the development), I will be actively maintaining it and make sure bugs are fixed quickly.
Well, I don’t plan to release it publicly, so you wouldn’t care, but I plan to spend lots of time on this project in the years to come, so as a counterpart I will need to reduce my involvement in the PSP scene.
It will become a bit hard for me to keep doing all the stuff I was doing so far, so I will probably post much less in this blog from now on, but this site and the /talk forums will stay open and maintained. I will also of course keep handling the genesis competition until it is complete (you still have 15 days to submit your entries!), and I will do my best to keep working on my pet project, Wagic (don’t be too worried for Wagic, I am not the only dev working on it anymore, and we have lots of stuff coming for Wagic soon, stay tuned!)
As far as the PSP scene is involved, I will of course try to follow it, but I believe my last major involvement with the scene will be the Genesis competition. It is awesome to see that the scene is still alive and kicking, I’m looking forward to what’s coming next for this console, although I must admit that Sony’s recent behavior with the scene is making writing this blog post much easier than I thought it would be.
This is not a goodbye, merely a message saying “don’t contact me if I don’t blog about the latest CFW, because I’ll be busy”.
I want to use the opportunity to thank m0skit0 and JJS for HBL, that was by far the most exciting era for me in my PSP hacking journey, and it was an honour to work on such a great project with developers that are so talented. Special thanks also go to Fanjita who shared the sources of the eLoader with me, this code was a major source of help for HBL, but also I was humbled to be contacted by such a great guy. Fanjita, thanks for letting my PSP run scummvm 5 years ago. Thanks to the wagic devs for sticking with the project for so many months/years, and to the people playing Wagic, or contributing to our community. Many thanks also go to the mods and admins on /talk, they are the ones who keep our forums friendly and safe. Finally, thanks to everyone I met directly or indirectly on the PSP scene. Despite being in this world for the past 5 years, I’m still amazed at what people can manage to do with their PSP, even when Sony try everything they can to prevent customers from actually using their devices.
