AhMan has just released a new version of iR Shell that adds support for the PSP Slim, along with various other new features. iR Shell is a multi-tasking shell that allows users to run UMD games and homebrew, among many other things via user-friendly menu interface.
He notes that all existing and new features are the same between the Phat and the Slim with the exception of the Slim not being able to use the Infra-Red remote (since the Slim does not have an Infra-Red port).
