So I'm guessing OFW 3.51 is pretty old...
So I'm guessing OFW 3.51 is pretty old... –
I just got a phat PSP with hopes of being able to CFW it. I'm in the process of finding out which CFW is the best and what all the differences is, but I see absolutely NO mention of my firmware anywhere. I'm guessing its a dinosaur. Amirite?
Yeah, the firmware is up to 6.xx (can't remember) So yep, you are indeed a Dinosaur. Time to get that thing some CFW man. :P
I'm still in the process of learning and there are a million methods out there depending on what PSP you have, but can someone please confirm what my thoughts are thus far:
1) Since I'm such an old version and PSP1001, I can flash any CFW no matter what, correct?
2) It appears 6.20/6.35/6.39 PRO-B7 is the most current release, but is this the most common? I just want the most compatibility with the dev community for the CFW I will run.
3) for getting to this firmware (I'm still searching for this part), do I do the update method to 6.20 and then CFW like its done for 5.xx cfw? Or is this something I need to go to a 5.xx for first, then upgrade, etc.
Well I determined 6.39 pro-b7 sounded like a good idea to start with. The flash was relatively easy.
I have background in PS3 CFW and I joined up when it was first announced back when the dongle method was needed. So I somewhat know the architecture and whatnot, but alas I'm lost still with all the available homebrew. Obviously I wanted to be able to test some snes type stuff, but what I was confused about was how some of the things like snes9x appear in beta. I bought a psp1000 the weekend they came out, and began joining homebrew forum about 3 months into release. IIRC I joined in on the 'jailbreaking' (as I'll just call it) with the psp as well. I remember it taking some time for a single snes9x program to come out. I really figured they'd be out of beta by now and have nearly every kink worked out. I'm guessing the sources I'm seeing are reitterations of the same program by different developers; but its none the less confusing which is best to use for those type of things.
Now I'm onto reading things like how to use my backed up umd games and if they'll require any type of signing or modifying much like the PS3 does with games requiring higher firmware to play on. If anyone has any suggestions I'm still all ears.
hi tyler, if you are on 6.39 pro you should find most all of your games, wherever they may be backed up from, will run as iso's with no modding required. Imagine being on the latest PS3 official firmware, all of the latest games released will be compatible with that. Regards the PSP 6.39 is an up to date official firmware hence full compatability. Create a folder named ISO in the root of your memory stick pro with the backed up game in there, as either an iso or cso (compressed ISO). It'll appear in the game menu on the XMB to start as if u had a disc in, same as PS3.
Looking at emulators, the snes9xTYL seems to be the one with the best following. I'm using that and gpsp_kai for GameBoy Advance emulation.
