The PlayStation Portable Homebrew Community latest release comes with the release of version 5.1 of the impressiveCyanogenPSP a project created and maintained by PSP developer Joel16. In this update to the PSP Homebrew(Shell), the developer has made some new additions while fixing and improving the MultiPurpose PSP Applications. One of the the biggest changes you will notice is the speed improvements as the homebrew is much faster and responsive.
The developer also give a warning that this may be the last update for some months as the developer plans to focus more on his exams that are coming up, view more details about that and this latest update below.
This update has increased the overall performance to almost twice as fast as it was in the previous releases. Heck go on and download the previous version, and compare it this one and you’ll come to know what I was talking about. I’d also like to state that there is a high chance this may not work on the Vita. If it doesn’t, just copy the “boot” folder inside the CyanogenPSP folder to your PSP/GAME and it should work then. The bootanimation uses extra memory, so that might affect Vita compatibility. PSP 1000 users should see a more shorter version of the bootanimation due to the lack of the extra memory that is available on slims. (This hasn’t been tested so PSP 1000 users please do report). BTW ISO loading does not work on ME CFW, but POPS and homebrews should work. Everything is confirmed working with PRO CFW.PS. Check the video above to see most of the changes.
Features: - Unify font loading to increase performance - Load more resources before start up. This leads to slower boot, but better performance. - 'Materialize' file manager icon (lol) and reorganized resources - Reorganized app drawer in alphabetical order - Filemanager: update deletion dialogue - Allow quick settings to be accessed in lockscreen - Enabled lockscreen during start up - Added Game and Boot animation - Added boot animation toggle (Settings>display) - Added game boot toggle (Settings>display) Fixes: - More cleaning up for better optimization - Fixed cursor overlay in display section - Fix up many possible memory leaks - Fix power menu crash due to the recent reorganization of resources - Fix up time.day alignment in quick settings - Removed app icons that I no longer plan to support.
