Looks like too many people jumped the gun.....reproducing the post i made at CEX..
Updates at D@tel's Battery and 88v3 IPL.
We already explained here when the new D@tel battery came into play, that "To have a LED indicator ON, doesn't means that you can install cfw or hack anything."
Well, from the same maxconsole thread from where the battery was announced as the mayor salvation for 3k and 88v3 users to be able to "downgrade your PSP and pretty much do what you want with it!", it's confirmed that this over exalted battery will leave 3k at least like the 88v3, just with a flashing light, a black screen and nothing but that LED indicator, as we announced.
Therefore, that (strange blue colored) battery won't work for you, instead "someone" makes a bypass for the preIPL thing that Dark_AleX explained here. (Considering that the preIPL on the 3k has the same security) Looks like D@tel was hoping that Dark-AleX hacked it, so only their battery could be available for the hacking proccess. Bad luck, guys.
Now onto the 88v3 IPL. You might remember this post from where part of the signing (there were 2 functions missing) was hacked from Brokencodes; so being as partial as it is, it would be interesting now to say, after reading about it on all the PSP-related webpages, that is NOT conclusive or definitely, so please, be aware that a "hack" for this couple of mobos might need further and longer study.
We'll keep you updated.
Especially for all the people certain that the hack was just around the corner...nope it's not. Stick to the TA-085's....the definitive edition! Meet anyone not named Alex or Alek who's sure of a hack....just ignore 'em!
