-Some Savegames from 1.50 Devhook don't work (Play it again with 33% more FPS (333MHZ) on 3.03 OE-A :-)
-NoUMD Mode Compatibility Problems for some Games
-Nearly full Flash 0 (Not much Space for big Gameboot.pmf's etc.)
-Location Free Player removed (Not enough Space Left in Flash0 but nearly noone uses it)
-Big Korean Font Files removed from Flash 0 (Relinked to other small Font)

3.03 OE-A/B is definately the "Golden Firmware". It's better than the plain 1.50 and any other official or unofficial Firmware out there. So stop asking. It has all the strenghts and none of the weaknesses of 1.50. And it's getting better with every update. You can downgrade everytime to 1.50 (Really Senseless). If anyone asks wich is the best Firmware, send him to this Thread. Now with the new Popstation cracked to play nearly any PSX-Game compressed and fullspeed i feel like in Heaven. Dark Alex is definately the King of the PSP Homebrew scene. Muchas Gracias.... For now, i can't imagine how to make this beautiful Firmware any better, but i'm shure it will get better... Anyway. Stop asking this Questions and update your PSP with the new Golden Firmware. SONY definately got owned....

im still waiting for a near to final release
something like c or d

maybe eggman needs to change the title to avoid confusion, i think he meant 3.02 not 3.03 oe because he mentioned oe A/B, maybe they would not make 3.02 oe-C if they're planning on releasing a 3.03 oe-A

I went from 1.5 to 3.03 OE-B and I havent regreted it. This is without a doubt the best/golden firmware... and if you dont like it just revert back to 1.5! :)

Happy days. :)
