Half Byte Loader Rev 96 Stable Released. Huge improvements!
Wololo has released Half Byte Loader Rev 96 Stable. This version I can see everyone wanting to download asap, why? Well its much, much faster for your emulators. Just check the above video and see how much faster Mario64 is running on Daedalus R13 on the PSP Go with Half Byte Loader Rev 96. These improvements are down to JJS who recently found a way to estimate most perfectly syscalls on most models of the PSP. This means your favorite emulators for example will now run at full speed without the need for a configuration file and without Sacrificing stability. There is a slight set back, Rev 96 update doesn’t improve HBL on firmware 6.20 for the PSP 2000 and PSP3000. Read more about that from Wololo below:

I know I said a few weeks ago that it was fine to update to 6.20, and people will probably hate me for that, but hopefully we’ll make progress on these models and this firmware one day too.
You know the drill: you need 5.50, 5.55, 5.70, 6.00, 6.10 or 6.20 firmware, the Papaton 2 demo, the save game data exploit and of course HBL revision 96 stable. You can download them all below.
