Dark Alex (http://www.dark-alex.org) has released his custom firmware for the PSP:

Please remember to check the included readme for alot more information on getting this up and running.

This is a custom firmware that lets to have in a single flash the advantages of firmware 1.50 and 2.71 at the same time.

Homebrew can be run on both kernels, the 1.50 one and the 2.71 one, letting almost all current homebrew to work on the 1.50 kernel, and 2.71 homebrew compatible with HEN C in the 2.71 kernel.

Note: the installer writes to FLASH0. I'm not responsable of any damage of what happens, since this software is provided free and without warranty. TA-082 users cannot use this because a 1.50 bootstrap is needed to boot the system patched.

At the moment, there is only installer for 1.50, although it could be easily ported to whatever firmware with kernel access such as 2.60 and 2.71, but at the moment i prefer not to doing it to avoid TA-082 using it and bricking their psp's.

Note that this package DOES NOT contain any illegal material. The user has to provide the 1.50 and 2.71 updaters pbp's to legally generate the DXAR file used for the flashing.

Read the readme, too long to copy it here.

Just downloaded. THIS IS EXCELLENT!!! Takes a while to install though. If i were you, i would only do this if you DON'T use harleyg, cause it's a little safer.

The next flash could be your last, so after upgrading my 1.52 to 2.00, then downgrading to 1.50 then upgrading to 2.0 and finally downgrading to 1.50. Think, I stay on 1.5, I remember doing my load, downgrading my brothers brand new 2.60 PSP, dont think I can afford replacing a PSP.

So, ill hold off on this until I see the full benefits, as I use 90% homebrew and 9% my umd games and 1% my umd movies.

Hmmmm im not sure if i want to get this. I already have a custom firmware that boots directly into ir shell.

Then you shouldn't upgrade!!
I did and I'm sad to say I didn't get IR shell working.
~~Maybe I'll downgrade to 1.50 again....

Unfortunatley, no. I have yet to see the 2.80 firmware involved with any devhook action, and im guessing that is going to come first before anything.

And shame on you for upgrading to 2.80, but some things cant be helped...
