    a custom firmware is a firmware that is custom.

    NO way I never new....gasp o_O Well since he started a thread on this a custom firmware is basically like making your own operating system for the PSP. And you can add what every you like in the firmware such as we could have 1.0 firmware with a location free player, web browser, and PMP mod codecs built in straight to the xmb. So things like this are something to look foward too but I would agree and say don't bother with this until its really worth downgrading for it. As 1.5 firmware can run dev hook were 1.0 can't.
    1 God 1 King is truly a king =D He saved me from leaving the scene, but kindly donating his PSP to me. Anybody who talks to him on these forums, is not worthy of his kindness =P THANK YOU 1 GOD 1 KING!!!!

    yer but doesnt this mean custom 1.5 so you still can use devhook, while having the web browser and other stuff

    And constant FW updates for the 1.5 to add in things (new codecs for audio/video, browser, etc...) without losing any of the homebrew capabilities. Hell, DevHook could even be built in.

    A recent study shows 92% of the teenage population likes rap music. If you are part of the 8% who listen to real music, put this as your sig.

    There\'s a spell check button. Use it.

    It's all possibilities. Right now for users the best version to use is 1.5. Version 1.0 downgrading will be more important for Users once such custom hacked FWs are released.

    exactly, wait until there are Custom FW released (or programs that will let you do it easily) and then maybe downgrade to 1.00 I personally would love to downgrade unfortuantly I can't

    could we be able to play 1.51+ and up games with custom firmware with the homebrew capabilities 1.5 has?
