    Well you could buy a psp with 1.5 then upgrade it to custom firmware so you can enjoy all your ISO games and homebrew and other stuff. But if your to buy a psp new your best bet is to look for one with a box indicating it has a 2.80 or below firmware psp in it.

    Your words, while incomprehensible at best, indicate a sense of ignorance. It depends. If you get a new PSP with 3.10 or later, you need to wait until a higher firmware downgrader is available. If it is is 3.03 or below, you can perform the tough task of acquiring GTA:LCS and downgrading it (that game is required), or anything below 2.80 (that, or 2.71) will be able to downgrade without that game.

    Apart from that, your intentions don't mean anything, and you don't really specify what you mean by "upgrade." Custom firmware? Or new official firmware? You don't say.

    And for integrity's sake, I hope you don't speak English natively. If you do not, then I understand that learning a new language is hard.

    Oh Thx for putting me down because of the way i formed the sentences, you could have just left it out and given me the straight answer, which i got, thx for that.
    And for the record i am not a native speaker, but more like the lack of laziness that made me spit out the sentences that way.
    Don't worry i'm not mad at you more like disappointed!lol
    But thx for your answer that is what i wanted to know exactly!
    I'm also not ignorant more of a noob in the psp arena.

    But what i wanted to know is, what firmware do i have to have on my psp, that plays games that are not store bought! (Hacked)

    Get any version upto 2.80. Because these versions are easily downgraded.

    Better off get a PSP with factory 1.5 firmware. I just bought a PSP from Hongkong (Region 3) with factory 1.5. They have 1.5 indicated on the boxes in the form of an orange sticker. (applies to region 3 only).

    It's around 100 hongkond dollars expensiver than the normal version that could be 2.80-3.03.

    100 HK dollars = 12 US dollars
