We've uploaded Software Release 17 Beta.
Important: Crystal Chip will autodetect the firmware disc and will load the 'Main Menu'. Please follow these steps strictly in the order they are listed:
Step 1: Insert Memory Card
Step 2: Insert firmware disc
Step 3: Install Bootmanager v1.7
Step 4: Upgrade firmware
Step 5: Put console in standby mode
Step 6: Turn console on again to enter Bootmanager v1.7
Do not upgrade new firmware before Bootmanager v1.7 was installed on the inserted memory card. Please follow this advise to avoid the risk of damage. This is still a beta-release.
This release adds a number of features including the ability to add new devices (USB, HDD, etc) which may be used to load homebrew applications. This also adds v14 support. Please note that this release has known bugs and another new release will follow shortly. PS1 games may not work on some versions of consoles with this release of software. If you have problems with PS1 games or anything else, please give us a few days for us to release our next upgrade to resolve these issues.
