    psp PSP Games That Can Detect Custom Firmware Out Now

    Some very interesting news i found at pspita who in turn got it from french site pspgen:

    Heres the translated details:

    Sony and the software house to pass counterattack. E 'of the news yesterday that the game Evangelion: Jo, for now this only on the Japanese market, is able to recognize the presence of the PSP Custom Firmware that is started. This is done by making a check on the RAM of the console, and whether this is positive, the game will not start. The solution to the problem might be but just around the corner. Like the CF-A 5.02GEN has a feature that allows you to emulate an official firmware, soon also the last 5.50GEN CF will benefit from this option.
    We will keep you updated when new.

    We thank you for reporting cesy94

    How long before every game features some anti custom firmware check, interesting times ahead, bit of a downer if you buy a game and because you have custom firmware you cant play it

    If it does catch on it will be irritating for a month or two at most and then a workaround will be discovered and it wont even be a problem...

    Its almost comical how hard Sony tries to stop homebrew and yet each and every time the hackers find a new workaround.

    I imagine the idea came to be in a conversation like this:

    Person1 "Hey, how can we make it so that the hackers don't want to buy a game even if they want to?"

    Person2 "I have an idea! Lets make games not work on hacked PSPs so that they ALWAYS have to download patched, pirated copies!"

    Person1 "Great idea! You get a raise for being a retard!"

    Don't you just love sony?

    We need a real psp2 not a psp go anyway.

    Now back on topic.

    If anyone with a custom firmware psp really wants to play the game. They would buy the game. Then downgrade their psp to official firmware and then upgrade it back to custom firmware when they are done finished playing.

    Less there is anything in the new firmwares that keep pandora's battery from working. Which I doubt.

    Or you can do what others do, which is wait for another more elegant work around.

    But what if this prevents the game's dumping ?
    Or the game that checks for cfw , even as iso . So we might have a paradox where the iso checks for cfw and does not start .
