    I've had my psp for 4 days now and i just discovered the huge community and mods that can be done.
    Can somebody here tell what I can do with a downgraded psp or direct me to some faq's I'll understand. I've
    never heard of an iso before today.
    Thanks,
    Dennis

    hi, noob.
    Reasons to downgrade:
    1. You can get homebrew. Homebrew is a lot of things. applications that help make things for the psp easier, homemade games, emulators (like original nintendo, super nintendo, sega, neogeo etc...), and roms (roms are the games (ex. mario, mega man X, paper boy etc..) DO NOT ASK WHERE TO GET ROMS AND EMULATORS HERE! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! just google it ;)

    2. ISOS- (I don't use them, but I know what the are. An iso is the main files of a psp game, which can then be played without a umd (universal media disc) SAME RULES APPLY! DO NOT ASK WHERE TO GET THEM HERE! asking for help is ok, after you get the iso.

    3. Customization- You can basically customize every aspect of your psp once you downgrade to 1.5. You can choose if you want the wavy background, you can change your background altogether (there are lots of tuts out there), you can change what your psp says ex. game, music, photo, settings, video, you can change the font. (look of the type on the psp). Some of these things mess with what's called "flash memory". I personally don't mess with the flash for fear of getting a "brick" A brick psp is basically as fun as a brick. The power light will come on, but after that the screen stays black, and the psp eventually shuts itself off. my advice: DON'T MESS WITH FLASH IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING! Oh, ya I almost forgot You can change the bootsound (sound psp makes when coming on) instead of the five sony chimes., you can change the gameboot (every time you open something and the PSP shows up with the white screen). there are some more, but I can't think right now. 0_o

    4. um, You can have the homebrew straight under GAME. You don't have to have loaders. You can just go straight to game, memory stick, then access.

    So, ya if you have a psp with version 2.7 or 2.71, YOU ARE SOL, but if you have any other version, you can downgrade, and get to 1.50, eventually. Good luck and welcome to the psp hacking community!

    must figure out exactly where foxhound's sig loops... O_O

    anyway, turg pretty much covered it 'cept one thing--ask about emulators all you want here. you just cant ask where to download roms from. same goes for isos. we dont care how you got the iso, but we'll help you get it running once you have it so please dont lie and say you dumped it and it came out as 20 pieces with .r## extensions and 24 bit encryption
