PSP-3000 HEN will not have ISO / CSO support
Davee has posted that he will not be implementing CSO or ISO support on his up-in coming HEN / Homebrew enabler for PSP-3000′s and Ta88v3 motherboards. Why? Mainly because davee has not been able to get M33′s permission to use their modules to would enable iso & cso support. Also because of davee’s stance on PSP piracy via ISO’s..
Here’s what davee posted today on the M for Mature forums
I assure you I have absolutely no intention of adding ISO/CSO loading at any stage of HEN. HEN will have next to no features of M33 except patching the firmware for homebrew. My initial idea was to load the M33 firmware and modify but I couldn’t get into contact with M33 for permissions to use their modules as of such I am using my own reverses.
To everyone begging their asses off for ISO support you can easily forget it. Even if I was to add it, about 50% of M33 is for ISO support and frankly I cannot be assed reversing that just to feed the pirates and the minority who actually use it for personal backups. I also believe you people are being incredibly ungrateful about there being no ISO support. For one, I have a homebrew enabled PSP 1000, I have no 2000 or a 3000. I should be technically studying for my exams but I still take the time to create this HEN for you folks. I think you need to take your time and realise what you’re saying.
We agree that ISO support will just feed the pirates out there. Homebrew support on a PSP-3000 will be great!. Although it is nice to convert that UMD we brought into a CSO/ISO for faster load times off the memory stick…That’s an added bonus but that leads to piracy and its killing the PSP. Well that and used games which are just as bad if not equal in the eyes of game developers.
