    hi guys and girls.

    Ive had my psp for about a year now (its the fat one in white). been quite happy playin gta and the like, only then i heard about "hacks". ive always asumed u need to be a master of computing to be able to do this only from what i hear u dont

    Basicly i would like to get into the light hacking scene like putting pograms on i didnt think were possible, (msn. vista. and changing the theme and backgrounds. What do i need to start ive been doing some reading and it would appear u need "firmware" what does adding this firmware achive? is there a chance ill break my psp and render it useless! what on earth is a pandora battery as it sound slike i need one of them..

    im a complete newbie to this sort of thing and would like to get into it so what can u suggest to get me going ive got wireless and can connect to the internet on my psp so does that help with hacking? lastly is it true u can download a game insted of buying it? are they full games or little arcade games?

    thanks Jamie

    Kury, since this is my first post of the morning i am going to be nicer on you. This is the wrong section to post this in, it belongs in the help section.

    I would suggest you start of by reading this post:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=101037
    It is a guide on how to post for help, generic topic titles like yours don't get you helped faster.

    Now on to a list of definitions for PSP related topics:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=139680
    Read through that thread it will give you more detailed information on what these terms you will encounter are.

    To learn more about M33 which is the newest line of custom firmware you can check this thread out:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=125380

    And to learn about Pandora check this thread out:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=112065

    Now after reading those threads you should check this one out it is a starting point for noobs:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=119276

    Now to clear a few things up, The PSP has a go messenger which acts like MSNs messenger. You are already able to change the background on your PSP as long as you are above 1.5 official firmware. Themes are changeable once you get into custom firmware, but some require you write to your flash 0 memory, this can lead to problems. To learn about firmware do a google on firmware to understand what the basic functionality of the term firmware means. Wikipedia has a good article to help you understand it. And as always when changing firmware on any device, since almost all electronic devices use firmware, there is a chance that something can go wrong and your PSP will not work. This is recoverable though using a Pandora downgrader.

    Having a wireless connection with your PSP wont do anything for you until you get to custom firmware 3.8 M33 then you can use a wireless update to go from 3.8 M33 to 3.9 M33. But that is not a topic we should cover for now. We will do it later when you learn more.

    And yes you can download games the PSP, it is illegal to download games, but you can make copies of your own UMD games and run them from a memory stick on your custom firmware so you don't have to carry a bunch of game disks around with you.

    And one last thing, don't ask for links to ISO and Game downloads as those things are illegal and are not allowed on this site. I would recommend you look into torrent sites, or use newsgroups if you want to acquire such things.

    Now go post a topic in the help section once you have read through those links i gave you and have a better understanding on things, or some more specific questions. And remember next time post a useful thread topic and required information so someone can help you better.

    And don't ask a question till you have looked at those threads and read through them. Thanks.
