Well, well! You (probably) already heard about the several PlayStation Developer Wikis like for the PS3 and the PS4, but also for the handheld consoles like PSP and PSVITA, with it's strong communities and useful information for each wiki. But while the actual Console Generations were already satisfied with their own wikis, there was something missing. If you wanted to get some informations about older Sony Consoles, then we had to be honest - your informations kept very short. But since we speak about the "past tense form" from "has", the lack of useful information could change with your help. Thanks to the well-known user @GregoryRasputin, you can now contribute to a PS1 and PS2 DevWiki! Yeah, that's right. Sony's both first released home consoles are getting it's own dedicated wikis and everyone is welcome to contribute.
The PS Dev Wiki's that comprise of PS4, PS3, PSP and PS Vita developer Wiki's are awesome, yet the family seemed as if it was missing something and that something was Wiki's related to the PS1 and PS2, which is why i have created Wiki's for both those consoles.
It will be harder documenting the PS1 and PS2 as the majority of the sites connected to those consoles are long gone and many are not archived properly on Wayback Machine, i am hoping that some people from those scenes will be able to contribute, perhaps some developers such as @bigboss, anyhow here are the links to all the PS Dev Wiki's:
Sure in the beginning, the content is rare on both wikis but with your help, this could change in near future. This makes it so interesting to be a part from the "growing process" when you already contribute at the beginning. And yes, maybe there was already some similar projects in the past , especially for the PS2 but as "Greg" already explained above, the old information are very rare and no one did a proper backup back in time. No question that in the early 2000s during the lifetime of both consoles, there wasn't such "wiki platforms" available on the internet. Therefore it's even more beautiful to see that there is still some existing Progress and Interest as you probably recognized a few days ago with several Releases for the PS2. Those consoles deserved it's own dedicated wikis and finally they got one.
If you want to contribute to both new wikis, please make sure that the registration on both wikis are disabled due to the high Spam amount on all wikis. You can add a message down below (same for the original source) or by contacting @GregoryRasputin at the Discord Channel "PlayStationBuddies". All the wikis itself have their own dedicated Discord Channels as well, which can be found here. Oh and yes, both wikis are hosting at the same server from PSP DevWiki. There is no need to be confused. This is actually intended since those three wikis are the smallest one. A few users from this Forum were already registered, so what are you waiting for? Let's contribute!

The developer has alot of videos on other intresting subjects in his diverse YouTube channel >>> (Bits and More) <<< many very informative video's..Continue reading
ref00d (plugin) Released - Run Games / Apps that require a higher FW from your ownFollowing the big news from Team Molecule several weeks ago and effectively opening the system wide open, it was only a matter of time before we would start to see other developer's start putting the finding to use and we have seen the FAPS Team (team members listed below) have recently released a new (taiHEN) plugin called ref00d, this plugin is a big deal, as it will allows users/devs to use content that would otherwise require a higher firmware to be played/executed on a lower firmware for your exploited PS Vita or PlayStation TV. Typically not an easy task to reach but thanks to Team Molecule's research and the FAPS Team we now have a ready to use simple plugin solution to remove those firmware restrictions, see additional details about this plugin release in the release notes provided below by the development team.
