I would be happy to receive help about this project! You do not need to know the PSP's internals or be a developer to help out; things like owning a PSP and offering to help with real hardware tests or suggesting a new research topic are great too.

have a look at my contact page to reach out to me personally, or just browse to the tildegit repo. The repo's issues are a great place to see what we already need.
