PlayStation Portable (PSP)

Viewing only articles categorized with "PlayStation Portable (PSP)".

It's the end of the year, and its also finally the end of a program I have been working on for 2 years now. Progress has been going on and off due to my participation in university, but I have finally come forward to make the final release. I should also mention, I hit a new milestone on GitHub today with 302 commits. If you haven't heard, Cyanogen Inc is shutting down, and so is CyanogenMod since Cyanogen Inc owns the right to the name "Cyanogen". I also must discontinue this project due to the use of the name. I apologize for such a late release, but it's finally here, although I wouldn't call it a finished product it's definitely been polished compared to last release 6.0 which was released a year ago (Dec 14, 2015).
