Please rename a GAME ROM to ROM.GB and put it to the same folder as EBOOT.PBP. In the firm only version 1.00, operation is confirmed.
Please enjoy it!!!

Yes. The sound has not rung yet.
In the emulator production, it is the most difficult.

This is indeed amazing that a full blown homebrew emulator can be released this quickly. It is amazing sequence of steps:

1. The EBOOT.PBP method of running code is discovered.
2. PSP binaries with symbols are discovered, allowing reverse eng.
3. The PSP firmware is able to be dumped.
4. First large scale homebrew app released.

Very impressive indeed. I don't know if this forum is the suitable place for such applications though, since it kinda promotes piracy. If the talk can be kept strictly dev talk though ;)

Does Mr. Mirakichi have a personal site, or any information on how he did this? :)

*wink* *wink* approaches to sensitive topics are just as bad for the viability of these forums.

This is great and all, but it's still Off-Topic. We can't have the dev boards filling up with app releases.
