    There are mixed opinions of which firmware is better.

    Some say 1.50, the original Homebrew God, next to 1.0.

    Some say 2.71 SE-A, the New God.


    1.50 Features

    1.50 Homebrew
    Have to run DevHook to have 2.71
    DevHook firmware files taken off memory stick.
    Has custom gameboots, Custom Fonts, no SCE intro and hide corrupt icons options; with Custom firmwares.
    Recovery Mode.
    Load PRX ability, Shortcut to Eboot, and launch DevHook via WLAN switch.
    To run a newer UMD you need to run DevHook.


    2.71 Features

    All the homebrew of 1.5 + 2.71 homebrew
    All 2.71's features without running DevHook.
    DevHook firmware files taken off flash.
    Still has custom gameboots, Custom Fonts, no SCE intro and hide corrupt icons options Custom firmwares have.
    Same Recovery Mode as 1.50 to recover bricks.
    No need to run DevHook to run a UMD.



    Looking at that, the only reason to keep 1.50 is "Load PRX ability, Shortcut to Eboot, and launch DevHook via WLAN switch."


    I personally say 2.71 SE-A owns, but what do you guys think?

    I won't be bothering with upgrading until I know the new firmwire is stable, supported and pref. with an easy installer out. And even with that I just don't feel like taking a risk for something so trivial to me, maybe if they ever manage to make a 3.0 custom firmwire, which looks to be something far, far away atm.

    From what i understand 2.71 SE-A just makes the games load without you having to load dev hook first? I'm sceptical when it comes to trying new loaders, If it was the case where you could play 2.8 games with SE-A and still only play 2.71 games with 1.5 i'd switch, but i see no need to at the moment because i can play all the iso's currently out without and problems with 1.5

    I enjoy my highly racist and offensive names in Socom, also I'll wait to see just how convenient this 2.71 SE-A is in the future.

    Hmm, does edisoncarter's LCS cheat device function with this haxored firmware?

    Yes you can.

    But people keep forgeting, 2.71 SE IS 1.50! It just has the 2.71 features.

    what'd they do? just extract files from a 2.71 PSP's firmware and add the few that didn't touch homebrew compatibility and flashed em to flash0:/ ?
    i have a fat PSP.
    No, I will not post the damn firmware history.
    Hippy.
