PSP News – Team M33 releases PSP Slim Custom Firmware 3.60!

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

Keeping their promise as posted a few days ago, team M33 have released the much anticipated custom firmware 3.60 for PSP Slim! That’s right folks, PSP Slim can now run homebrew and “stuff” just like the original PSP. This is great news for the PSP scene, as not only can ANY original PSP be downgraded using the pandora battery, but the same technique can be used to install custom firmware on the new PSP Slim.

Team M33 writes:

We are proud to present the first custom firmware for the PSP Slim, and the first custom firmware that runs using a 3.XX IPL (3.60).

3.60 M33 for PSP Slim has all the features of 3.52 M33, except the 1.50 kernel support, as that kernel doesn’t work properly on psp slim (hardware problems, screen problems). 3.60 M33 will load homebrew from GAME, GAME150 and GAME360 directories, but all will be executed with 3.60 kernel.

This mean that some homebrews done specifically for the 1.50 kernel cannot work on 3.60 M33. However, the adaptation of code to 2.XX+ kernels is not difficult, and homebrew developers can port their aplications to work in these firmwares.
