As the title states. I'm doing just that. I am ending my work on the Itadaki Street Portable Patch. PreRelease 3 is the last release. It has come to my attention that by continuing work on the patch, I may be putting myself in danger of Square-Enix's legal team. However, I fully agree to their efforts to protect their copyrights, so I am choosing to end the project of my own free will. I will no longer distribute the patch on either this blog or my youtube account. I don't think there's anything I can do about the Romhacking.net entry, though. I do not know if I will finish the documentation of the Board format, but I'd rather not take any chances.
The patch completed its goal long ago, so I do not regret doing this. I don't believe I did anything wrong, but Square Enix has the right to do what they want with their properties. In addition, I would rather leave the dialogue unchanged as it may even convince pirates to purchase any future official release.
Either way, good day and good luck getting the dominance trophy!
