– Only minimal sprx patches are applied since those are obsolete because those were already pre-applied when CFW was built.

This will minimize usage of LV2 Kernel memory which its temperature decrease is expected.

No more XMB spinning bug, so no need Showtime installation to fix that issue.

– PSP ISO compatibility may have been decreased, from my test results its compatibility is not as good as previous Cobra build, and However, PSP Remastered/Minis PKG won’t have this problem.

This is only ISO compatibility, currently investigating the issue, this will be improved from next build.

– PS2 ISO compatibility

BC/Semi BC consoles are supported, but it has a little glitch bug where you cannot see anything when pressing PS Button, however you can still quit games still, just use D-PAD to select the quit game then exits to xmb.

And Wireless connectivity is also supported. Since BC/Semi BC console use the same ps2 emu for both ISO/PS2Classic

You can use save files for both mode, but Non-BC console will have to use different save files per mode.

Non-BC consoles

Wired controller is supported at the moment, and special thanks to @smhabib for his tip for patching ps2_netemu.self properly.
