And it is that its creator has published a notice on the emulator’s official websitewhere he announces that he has decided to **cease the development of the project, due to the bullying you have received over the past few weeks, including threats of death.

The communiqué begins by informing that due to the incessant impersonations, complaints, lawsuits and death threats, It has been decided stop development of AetherSX2 indefinitely.
Despite this, it will still be possible download the appand its operation will not be affected in the short or medium term.
Although not specified Where did the threats come from? to which it refers, does affirm that since AetherSX2 was little more than a hobby for the developer and did not obtain any type of economic benefit, “it does not make sense to continue working” on the project.
Alert, in addition, on alleged unreliable apps that masquerade as AetherSX2, and that users should avoid downloading to their devices. The only reliable apps are available in the official AetherSX2 APK file repository. It is also possible to download the latest available version of the app through the Google Play Store.
