    I personally think It's an April Fools day thing, but you guys can have your own opinion

    The message which comes up on his website :

    "Following recent announcements about movie studios ditching the PSP, and after months and months of battling to bring homebrew to a console whose makers obviously don't want it, we decided that it's time to throw in the towel.

    Therefore, as of now, there will be no more eLoader releases. Sorry. I know this may seem sudden, but it's been coming for a long time, our enthusiasm for the PSP has been slowly dwindling over the past couple of months.

    The final nail in the coffin was spending the last few weeks trying to break a leaked copy of the v3.0 firmware release. Sony have done a really good job on this one, and we've given up hope of being able to crack it. Not even the GTA exploit works - it seems that Sony are really serious about security this time, and it's depressing. The slog ahead to try to crack what amounts to a total rewrite of the firmware just doesn't seem worth it. Good luck to anyone who does decide to try.

    I've decided to move to develop for the Gizmondo, a console that has been neglected for homebrew, but where the battle isn't quite so unrelenting. Work has begun on an eLoader for the Gizmondo, allowing the same rich homebrew platform that PSP owners have grown to love. Some people will ask, "Surely the GP2X would be a better choice?", but I've always said that the GP2X doesn't offer any sort of a challenge. Sorry guys, but the Gizmondo really needs some loving...

    Ditlew has decided to focus his talents on furthering the burgeoning Xbox360 hacking scene.

    So long PSP, it's been nice knowing you."

    And seeing how Gizmondo has been in the dumps lately, I feel that they can use Fanjita's help to actually make something worthwile out of the handheld. Fanjita has made it known in the past that he would probably never go to GP2X development because its so easy. That's why he chose Gizmondo, because he often gets begged to help out their homebrew scene.

    So on behalf of all the community, I'd like to thank Fanjita for all his hard-work. Fanjita, you can leave the community knowing that none of your hard-work has gone in vain. I'm sure the community here at PSPUpdates feel the same way.

    Goodbye Fanjita.


    Edit:
    Unlike what most of our readers think, this matter is a lot more serious. I just noticed this : eLoader is no more, in our forums.
    Plus, the eLoader forum has been closed down. It hardly looks like an April Fools' Joke.
    and here's the link to the story on pspupdates

    Theres gonna be a lot of April Fools jokes. One I encountered yesterday at 11PM CST on Pspupdates.com claiming that a member ,i forgot his name, has succesfully downgraded his 2.6 PSP to a 1.5 It was available for download and I checked the comments and everybody said it was fake. Also people claiming that you cant even download it cuz when you click on the download button it pops up pspupdatespace or something. To my surprise, I went to bed and a moment ago I woke up and checked PSPUpdates again and they deleted that entry!If it were an April Fools joke im sure they would have kept it up there longer. But i dunno....
    But I think this probably is a joke...the Gizmondo?damn, Last time I heard about that was last year telling us that it was trying to compete with the PSP. Haven't heard about it since

    Ya I hope this is just an april fools day joke(bricked a 2.0 psp probily going to get back a 2.6 or even one of those new 2.61) and if there note going to make eloaders and other programs how will I play new homebrew.

    And what is up with that bit about a leaked version of 3.0 (i have hered nothing about it) maybee that means it is just a joke.

    Yo If they have a leaked 3.0, why don't they just release that as a going out gift to everyone, because some people with 2 psp's would love to have 3.0!
