From what research I have done I have found that the custom firmwares released by Dark_Alex are the way to go.
I want to make sure I get everything right, so I don't totally screw up my PSP or brick it or something.
Just to get things straight - if I was to put 3.40oe-a on my PSP when I got it, I would-
1)Be able to play almost any homebrew 1.5 could play
2)Be able to play PSX games (taken from discs that I already own, properly converted with popstation)
3)Make all PSP games think I have a v3.40 firmware?
Am I correct?
The readme for 3.04oe-a says:
will check for them for you):
- Copy 340oeflasher and 340oeflasher% to /PSP/GAME if you are in 1.50, or to /PSP/GAME150 if you
are in any SE/OE version. Move the DATA.DXAR to 340oeflasher directory.
You need 75% battery, although you can skip this if you pressed L+triangle while loading the program.
What program is it referring to when it says "Execute the program"? Is it one of those eboot.pbp files? If so, which one? Is it the one in the oeupdmaker directory?
It talks about moving files to the 340oeflasher directory - is there another program I need to run after that is done? And what's the "75% battery" thing about?
If anyone can help out, it will be much appreciated
