PSP Downgrader halted - WAB dissolved
This is a dark day for the PSP community, thousands of fans awaited eagerly for team WAB’s promised downgrader. We were even given a downgrade movie to prove that the project existed but now, due to reasons they do not explain, the collaboration with PSP-Dev has halted and team WAB has dissolved.
PSP-Dev clarified that they only obtained about 17,72 euros (about $20) since July and they have always chosen to keep their work free. On the other hand it’s unclear how much money WAB got from their donations.
Was it all a big scam? Personally… I doubt it, due to the team’s past programs they’ve released and the progress they’ve been having flashing PSPs, however, they should have at least left an excuse or goodbye message in their address instead of simply taking the site down, which was quite unprofessional.
Maybe we’ll hear from them again, maybe not, but one thing is certain, I doubt that any future promising project for the PSP manages to acquire much from donations, due to this move by WAB the faith of thousands of fans (including my own) has decreased a lot.
