    Basically, just give me the lowdown on what kinda modified PSP you are using by telling me step by step what was done to it. Keep it short and simple but include program names and personal program modifications if necessary (like writing to the GUI or writing with xflash).

    include: the updates/downgrades, applications used (or still using), any other generally important things you used or are still using: PSP tips and tricks, most pimped out programs, etc.

    Your timeline should start and end something like this (but be better than mine)

    1. 2.01 US psp
    2. I use the GTA:LCS exploit with fanjita's ELoader v.x
    3. EasyDowngrader should have been already installed. Now I can use it because of Eloader (or eboot... I forget if I need eboot).
    4. 1.50 US psp
    5. I use X-Flash or Devhook?
    6. da
    7. da
    8. da
    9. da
    10. da
    11. Installed a new font using ______
    12. I customized the home screen (icon arrangment, etc) using ______
    13. I added an wallpaper and tunes.
    14: I added these things to make it cool ______________________

    In conclusion, I would like to know what were the steps taken when you MAXIMIZED your PSP. In your steps you should include what was used, how you used it(if it isnt obvious), and any other pertinent information. There is no need to mention past revisons that got trashed. But you can get technical when you mention how you customized your firmware to get it soo fast or soo easy and sleek looking. What are the best programs on it? IRshell or file assistant for instance?

    What does YOUR psp have that mine doesn't (mine is straight out of the box), why is YOUR psp awesome, what did you do to it?

    I was looking more into what programs were used to deck out your PSP

    example
    1. my new psp
    2. change firmware to 1.5 (how? what programs were needed and in what order?)
    3 hardware changed (how? found the mother board and I added a chip and took away another chip
    4. I emulate custom firmware (how? I use devhook or xflash OR....
    5. ....WHATEVER IT IS that needs to be done to turn my psp into a fancy, good looking, speedy and hi-tech movie player/game player with all the wonderful extras: shortcuts, bells and whistles, tips and tricks.


    I figured that by starting a thread like this I would find a person who would give step-by-step instructions on how to turn your psp into a psp all macked out (with the best programs, customization, internal mods, easy or speedy interface and controls, and the stuff I don't know about but would certaintly rock my psp.

    ALL you have to do is tell us why your PSP is a hot item lately -- because of the things it has (what things?). And because newbs like me need step by step instructions on how you eventually go you system settled in the way you like it.

    1) Bought a 2.5 non-TA-082.
    2) Spent the next 3 or so hours figuring out how to upgrade (talk about noobish).
    3) After upgrading to 2.71, I spent the next 3 or so hours making sure I had everything in place for the downgrade. (still noob at this stage).
    4) 1.5 (friggin sweet).
    5) Installed DevHook 0.46 (back in the days).
    6) Found out about custom firmware in the next few days and decided to give it a shot.
    7) Fucked up the installation of the custom firmware (still noob as it has only been a few days)
    8) Semi-Brick. (Yes, I was a dumbass)
    9) Worked things out with the CF and got rid of it (don't ask).
    10) Went back to stock 1.5 and 0.46 DevHook.
    11) Played lots of games and then 0.51 Devhook came out.
    12) Installed 0.51 and still playing lots of games.

    fun, fun, fun till this day.

    no-one is gonna do that.

    Just downgrade and put your own stuff on the memstick. And getting the system the way I like it wont be the way YOU like it.

    1) PSP 1.52 from first release day in Germany
    2) Thought: "Why not install this 2.00 upgrade from the Demo-UMD? Updates are always good"
    3) Friend told me about Hombrew but he said that it only works on 1.50
    4) I tested an early SNES Emu because I didn't belive my friend
    5) Getting a "The Game could not be started" error
    6) Shouted loud "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!"
    7) Got bored with PSP because I had no money for a game
    8) Surfed the net a school few days later, a read a article about the MPH Downgrader.
    9) Almost got a heart attack while downgrading
    10) On 1.50 hacked my version to 2.00 using WAB Version Changer to play Burnout and changed Wallpaper with WAB Skin Changer
    11) Played a lot SNES and stuff
    12) Watched a Video of modded PSP at youtube
    13) Hacked my Font with Easy Font installer (that thing that flashes only flash1)
    14) Found X-Flash
    15) Changed Gameboot (+brand removed) + Bootound
    16) Upgraded to Custom Dualboot 1.5
    17) Upgraded to 2.71SE-B
    18) Done the same things with X-Flash
    19) Upgraded to 3.02OE-A
    20) X-Flashed again....

    I have left out a few things because it got too detailed^^

    saw psp fs ad at college, started looking at psp sites
    bought psp value pack used from a guy at college (spiderman 2 and demo umd, with white headphone controller and ear buds) (I think it was 2.71, maybe 2.60)
    got gta:lcs and eloader and other games
    downgraded to 1.5 and used devhook .46 w/ 2.71
    1.5 CF from harleyg
    kid at a lan party ran update from burnout so I was back to 2.00
    mph downgrader to 1.50 then 2.71 se-b''
    2.71 se-c devhook .50 with 2.71/2.80 hybrid then .51 with 3.01
    3.02 oe-c devhook .51 3.01

    I think I've had irshell and wifisniffer on my psp since I found those apps. The homebrew was the reason I bought the psp, and I have not been disappointed.
