    Well, I decided I'm going to get a psp today. I have 2 iPods, a mini and a 30GB video, I haven't used my video since I got my mini, so i'm takin it back to costco today and trading it for a psp. I read about the serial number determination guide kinda thing, so i'll try to find one with a higher letter. But if I don't get a 2.00, I'll either just trade it for one of my friends, or go to like gamestop and trade it for one there. So anyways, my main question is... I have a 1.8" 30GB hard drive, which I will soon be buying an enclosure for and having an external usb hard drive. Is there any way I can use that with my psp? Oh, and is there a thread somewhere that has pictures of the different kinds of emulators and stuff there are for psp? If not could someone post some? Thanks alot guys.:mrgreen:

    unfortunately you hard rive will not work with your PSP, as your PSP only works as a slave you need a master to transfer data.

    go to the downloads section of this site and you can download the emulators, but you have to get the ROMS for them on your own, it is against the rules to ask on the forum.

    if u need anny more help throw me a PM

    read up, kid. you've got alot of that ahead of you. it's prolly gonna take you about a month to completely understand everything with playing "backed up" games, so you really are gonna have to read alot. read the guide random made. it's pretty good. he wrote this back when runumd was new, and dax wasnt very compatable with much, so i updated it


    ________________________
    This is a complete, idiot proof, guide to running stuff on your 1.5, once your done with it you will be a pro at running 1.5 homebrew. Sorry its so long but its very helpful if you’re a beginner to PSP homebrew. I recommend you save this to your PC.

    Well congrats on your new 1.5, it’s by far the best firmware because you can do a lot of awesome stuff with it. The biggest thing that people like about it is ISOs. ISOs are basically free PSP games, a file format of the little UMDs that you buy. I’ll talk about it later because it’s kind of complicated. The first things you should try are basic homebrew games, and then you can move on to more complicated stuff. Homebrew games are games made by coders and programmers. They are basic but some are very fun.

    Before you start downloading stuff you should get winRAR from www.rarlabs.com, it’s like WinZip. Many files you download will be in .rar format which WinZip doesn’t support. Also get SeiPSPtool from here: http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/110 Its a very useful tool, go ahead and extract it somewhere convenient, there will be a file inside called SiePSPtool.exe, I recommend you make a shortcut to this on your desktop because you will use it a lot..

    Since Sony started trying to block homebrew, for 1.5 there needs to be two folders with an “eboot.pbp” file in each one. (Eboot.pbp files are the files that the PSP reads, kind of like an .exe program for PC) Now this sounds complicated but it really isn’t. It’s much harder for 2.0 and up because of the further developments Sony has made to block stuff.

    I’ll start off with homebrew games because they are the most simple.

    Homebrew Games:

    rRootage:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/261
    rRootage is a shooter game, once you get the hang of it, its very addictive. rRootage already comes ready to run on your PSP so it’s very simple. When you get the file you open it with winRAR then go to the folder that says 1.5 inside the rRootage_PSP 1.4 folder, there should be two folders in there one should say rRootage and the other rRootage%. The folder with the % is the dummy folder that the PSP loads and the folder without is the real folder that contains the real data. You put both of these files in the GAME folder in your PSP folder on your memory stick. Now the program is ready to run and you can play it but it will show the icon for the game in your game menu along with a “corrupt data” icon. Now this icon isn’t really corrupt (you need this icon – DO NOT DELETE IT) but it is pretty annoying. Run seiPSPtool and click on the button in the menu on the left that says “corrupt icon” make sure your PSP is connected and that rRootage and rRootage% are in the GAME folder, make sure your PSP's drive letter is selected in the box that says “PSP device” then type in “rRootage” in the box that says “Folder name” then click “rename”. This automatically renames the folders of the program so that the corrupt icon does not show up in the menu. You can use this method for any program for your PSP to hide the corrupt icon, just type in the name of the program instead of “rRootage”.
    Now the two folders in your PSP should look something like:
    “rRootage _” and “rroota~1%” They look confusing but the file with the % is still the dummy folder and the one without is the real data folder.

    Supertux:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/205
    Supertux is a Mario like game. It is set up just like rRootage, just open it with winRAR, open the folder that says Supertux, 1.5, then there are the two folders you put in the game folder (“Supertux” :Supertux%”) put those in your GAME folder then rename them with seiPSPtool to hide the corrupt icon. It’s pretty easy so far.

    Metroid Planets:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/251
    It’s a Metroid game. Just like the others put the two folders in the GAME folder, rename them with seiPSPtool.

    Laserix2:
    http://dl.qj.net/Laserix-2-for-PSP-Gami … /catid/195
    It’s a puzzle game. Copy to game, run seiPSPtool.

    Zorblocks:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/293
    It’s a puzzle game. Install it same as the others except this one is already renamed to hide the corrupt icon so all you have to do is put it in the game folder.

    There are plenty of other homebrew games; those are just some games I felt you should try, and a good way to start with PSP homebrew.

    Now I’ll move on to emulators. They are basically the same as homebrew games.

    Emulators:

    NesterJ (Nintendo)
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/364
    This is the first file that isn’t already in two files, ready to run on your PSP that I have told you about. This one is a little different. This time create a new folder (call it anything but it should probably be NesterJ since that is the name of the program). Put that folder somewhere convenient on your PC where you know where it is, then extract all the files from the NesterJ file you download into the folder you just created. Now run seiPSPtool but instead of clicking the corrupt icon you usually click on, you’re going to leave it on the first screen that pops up (the green icon that says export eboot). This is where you convert the unpatched “eboot.pbp” file into the two files to run on 1.5. First make sure your PSP is connected to your PC. In this case type NesterJ where it says “name”, then where it says PBP file, click the button next to it that says “…” then click “whole folder” and select the folder you just created and extracted the files to. Make sure your PSP’s drive letter is selected where it says “PSP unit”, check the box that says “Hide corrupted image…” Then finally click “Generate” and “Export to 1.5 PSP”. That creates the two folders, and hides the corrupt icon for you. You also use this method for any other program.

    RIN (game boy)
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/333
    You do this the same as NesterJ, extract the files to a folder on your PC called RIN, run seiPSPtool, type RIN, select the whole folder RIN, click “Hide corrupted…”, Generate, export to 1.5 PSP. Put the game boy ROMs in the folder without the %.

    SnesPSP_TYL (Super Nintendo)
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/291
    This one is already in two folders, open it with winRAR and go to the folder that says Kxploit_Ready, inside is snes9xTYL and snes9xTYL%, put those in the game folder and rename them with seiPSPtool like you did with the homebrew games. As usual put ROMs in the folder without the %.

    These are just some of the emulators you can run for PSP.

    Now of course since you have the emulator running you need to get some ROMs (games for the emulator) to run on it, just Google search for them.

    If you can’t find a specific ROM just Google search “[ROM name] [system] ROM download”
    Example: Chrono Trigger SNES ROM download
    That will direct you to a download of Chrono Trigger which is a SNES (Super Nintendo) game.

    Once you download the files then extract them to the emulator folder in your GAME folder without the % sign (the real folder, not the dummy folder)


    Download more homebrew games and emulators from:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/downloads.php
    http://dl.qj.net/Gaming-Consoles-PSP/catid/106

    Now the only drawback to having a 1.5 PSP is that some new UMD games don’t work for it.


    They are developing programs everyday to run more and more UMDs on 1.5 so just because something doesn’t run for 1.5 now doesn’t mean it won’t ever so don’t jump the gun on upgrading.
    Some UMDs run with a new program called Run UMD.
    Get Run UMD here http://dl.qj.net/Run-UMD-0.01.01a1-Expe … /catid/114
    Install it like normal homebrew. Open it with winRAR, open the folder “runumd_ver00101…”, then open “PSP”, then open “GAME”, there will be your two folders. Drag and drop them into the GAME folder on your PSP, rename with seiPSPtool. Insert the UMD you want to run, run the program (run UMD), then it will give you the option whether to press O or X, the first time you ever play a game with it press O which will make some necessary files to run the UMD. It will save these folders in a folder on your root called “X”, DO NOT DELTE THIS FOLDER. You will need it, if you don’t like to look at it just hide it (right click on the folder, click properties, check hidden, then apply) Then after you press O the first time you play the game press X to start it. Not all UMD games will work this way but they are working on it.

    Now on to ISOs…

    Start out with fastloader, it’s the easiest.
    Download fastloader here: http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/90

    Extract it to your mem stick like other homebrew, open it with winRAR, open the folder that says Fastloader V0.7, then extract all those files to your mem stick root folder.. Make sure ISO, ISOMISC, and ISOSPLIT are in the root folder along with the PSP folder, then check to make sure Fastloader and Fastloader% are in the GAME folder, there will also be another folder called something like – 1.0 FW EBOOT… You can go ahead and delete this. Run seiPSPtool to rename it, etc. Now put ISOs (with the extension .iso) in the ISO folder on your PSP. Run Fastloader and there will be a list of all the ISOs on your mem stick. Make sure you have a UMD in the UMD drive (any UMD will work) and click on the ISO you want to play and it should start. (Unless of course it doesn’t work with fastloader, doesn’t work with 1.5 at all, or it’s a bad ISO)
    For a list of all the ISOs that work on 1.5 go here: http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=14028

    The other good ISO loaders:

    UMD emulator:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/92

    Dev Hook:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/91

    As for acquiring ISOs your on your own. Use torrents, FTP, and P2P.

    There is also a new MPH gameloader that runs some ISOs that require 2.0.
    I’m not going to explain it because its pretty complicated. Read this: http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=23673 and this: http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=22041 on how to use it.

    he didnt write anything about dax or the new Genesis UMD loader (prolly cause genesis wasnt out yet and dax wasnt very good yet) so i'll add them in myself

    DAXZISO loader (Dax for short)--it's a tool used to compress isos. it uses it's own custom compression format and is a MAJOR step in isos for us. here is the newest version. it comes with a tool to compress your iso and has many options for loading games with the various iso loaders. read the read-me for specific instructions on how to use loading options.

    --Update on RunUMD--daxed isos can now be run using RUNUMD. the iso must have an untouched BOOT.bin and EBOOT.bin (you'll know what those are after youve used isos for a while. there is a "runumd" load option built into the dax loader. once again--read the read-me to find out how to use it.

    there you go. all the info you could possibly need. thank you random

    Glad my guide went to use... :sigh: 2.01...

    Anyways, I didnt think about that stuff Killaj, I guess I'll update it. What I think I'm gonna do pretty soon is add all my tutorials together and make a thread (obviously updating it every so often)

    Random m8 if you made a chm file out of your guides that will make it easy for all the noobs.

    A chm file for e.g. is Windows Help. What you can do is get a program from download.com which allows you to create them, I think it is cheesily named chm creator. You can make chm files out of already existing html pages..

    hope that helps
