    "I've decided to cease OE development, and leave PSP scene.
    The reasons are various.
    One of them is the time it consumes, which i'm losing from other things.
    The other is related to my security. I didn't like Sony menaces to PS3 hackers.
    I think it is better to leave now rather than end paying the consequences. "

    What is the future for custom firmware users?

    no 3.51 OE-A could of been cool with more added stuff, like the ability to play iso without a UMD and dat is possible because of the hidden iso loader. man, i think dark-alex should teach someone how to make custom firmware so they can carry on his work.

    This is almost as bad as when I found out that the US Govorment blew up the Twin Towers in NYC!

    They did a really good job covering that up ;)

    But ya we can't live with 3.40oe-a forvever... right?

    Say it ain't so! DaX was the most loved homebrew developer out there! But it's his choice and he's done a lot for us so we should respect him. I hope someone will continue making the OE firmwares. But damn that sucks..

    if nobody else decides to code custom firmwares, were all screwed over. sony has these gay idstorage checks in 3.30 so nobody who downgraded in the past can go past 3.30 ofw.

    This is just speculation but do u think with the suddenness of this all that sony might have bribed him or something because clearly he was the ringleader and for him to stop completely so suddenly is quite odd.

    yea that probably happened. i saw on google that he was paid 2 million $$$ to quit making OE's but its total BS! i hope that DAX comes back.

    This sucks sooooo bad!!! If nobody makes more custom we are f**ked!!! because if s0ny was smart they would make a 3.60 and all of the new games require 3.60 to play them so we wouldn't be able to play anymore new games!!!

    Thats why we need now more than ever for talented coders to step up to the plate.

    If this is true (and seems to be) then:

    **** YOUR'E THE GREATEST DARK ALEX! ****
    **** ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR FUTURE ****
    **** YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE! ****

    {Sorry for Caps Mods, just thought it was appropriate}
