He left the Jesuits because he felt that what his superiors were demanding of him went against his conscience.  He received the ok to leave the order, supposedly from Paul VI himself, who removed from him his vows of poverty and obedience.  He did not renounce his priesthood in any way and continued saying daily mass, hearing confessions, and doing exorcisms.  He received his jurisdiction from Rome itself and was required to travel back to Rome on a regular basis to check in with his new superiors there.

cool, I kinda got it right

You definitely got it right, at least according to my limited understanding of the history of Fr. Martin.  I assume Gerard will be able to give a more thorough answer.
