    Hey guys and girl ;)

    I just got my psp

    I like the idea of home-brew.

    I downgraded from 2.8 to 2.7 then to 2.0 and now I'm at 1.5

    I've been playing around with all kind of stuff
    (still looking for a nice mp3 ogg player)

    The 3.0 update from sony seems cool.

    I just want to know if I should stay at 1.5
    To use home-brew and iso games

    Or upgrade to 3.0

    Thanks

    DONT!...

    Use the custom firmware thats out... 3.03OE-A'

    It does all the official 3.03 sony stuff and all the 1.5 homebrew stuff too...

    Repeat... DONT UPGRADE... instead...install customfirmware 3.03OE-A' (its not official sony firmware)

    PSP History: 2.6-> 2.71-> 1.5-> 2.0-> 1.5-> 1.5CFW + DH0.46 = 1.5CFW/2.71EMU ------
    -->3.02OE-B -----> 3.03OE-B/DevHook 0.51.0101 = CustomFirmware and never bricked!

    Don't upgrade using with official Sony firmware updates or you'll be screwed... no more homebrew or iso's.

    Dark_Alex has released a custom firmware 3.03 OE. download it from the main page or from the hacks cracks and mods section and install it. You'll have all the benefits of 3.03 (expect for location free player and korean language) and all the benefits of 1.5.

    You can load iso's straight from the XMB (psp's main menu) so no need for devhook. 1.5 homebrews work eg snes emulator etc. And to top it off you can play PS1 games. If you don't like it (which I doubt you will) it as a recovery mode so you can downgrade to 1.5 agian.

    Hope that helped and welcome to PSP hacks.

    Just put the ISO in the ISO folder and you should see it on the xmb right?

    Try holding down R when you power up your PSP, A blue screen with some options should appear.

    Select configuration -> Game folder homebrew (currently: x.xx kernel") if it says 3.03 kernel change it to 1.50 kernel.

    Exit and try your iso agian. see if thats the prob.

    Do you have a UMD in the drive? Because you need a UMD inside your PSP for most games to work. Some games will work with no UMD inside but you need to go into the bluescreen menu on power up to change it to No UMD mode. What game is it that you are trying to run?

    EDIT: It has to be a game UMD, any will do even a demo UMD.

    When I was in 1.5 with the iso loader.

    It would take 3 seconds to see the game load.

    The drive light is on and work... still nothing on screen
