Prometheus Hack Creator Exits PSP Scene

Chinese PSP hacker liquidzigong, otherwise known as hrimfaxi, pioneered the widely-used custom firmware plugin dubbed “Prometheus.” He’s now decided to part ways and leave the scene, citing the looming threat of legal pressure and concerns over his “personal safety.”

The plugin allows users to bypass required firmware updates, running titles that may require 6.20 on a 5.00 M33 or 5.50 GEN unit, for instance.

The author has also asked the administrator of Chinese forum A9VG, on which he released the statement, to delete his user account and associated posts.
