    Chaos Zero has stepped up to the plate with a public apology for all the confusion caused with the fake TA-082 downgrader. I, for one, trust Chaos Zero and respect his contributions & loyalty towards the scene; especially helping those who need it most ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬ ¡Ã‚¬? the noobs. Hereâà ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã ‚¬Ã¢ââ⠚¬Å¾Ã‚¢s the apologetic excerpt:

    On behalf of PSP-HaXors, I would personally like to apologize for the recent release of the fake TA-082 downgrader by dark_thug.

    Once it was emailed to me, I was skeptical. The sizes of the so-called ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â €šÂ¬Ã…“.thugÃà ƒâ€šÃ‚¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â⠀šÂ¬Ã…¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒà €š? files matched the sizes of the Official Sony 1.50 firmware eboot and 2.71 eboot files.

    So instead of releasing a fake downgrader to the scene, I held on to it.

    With no proof, I finally decided to get it tested in a live test.

    Without a TA-082 PSP myself to test it, I gave it out to test to 3 people who asked for it.

    When all three came back saying it worked, I released it, with the proper cautions.

    After which, PSP-Hacks and QJ posted the article. I kept an eye on the comments, on the post and on the forum.

    Numerous people from PSP hacking sites reported success, and a few, bricks, so I assumed it was working.

    That was until birdman and Dark_AleX said it was a hoax, and could neither downgrade nor brick a PSP.

    So that said, I would like to apologize to PSP-Hacks, QJ, DCEmu, MaxConsole, and any other site who stumbled upon the article.

    It was fake, and weÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ ’¢â€šÃ⠀šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†¬Å¾Ã‚¢ve all seen fakes in the past. And will probably continue to see them.
    Instead of pointing fingers at the testers, itÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ ’¢â€šÃ⠀šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†¬Å¾Ã‚¢s better to just move on.

    Again, I am sorry for posting it without the proper proof.
