    Default Benefits of 1.5 system

    Hey everyone,

    I have a 1000 series that I purchased in 2006. Currently it hasv PSP 5.03 firmware but I have been reading a lot into downgrading. My Son (hes 5) plays a lot of games and i dont want to downgrade and not be able to play our UMD disks.

    From your perspectives what are the benefits of downgrading than keeping up with the PSP firmware.

    If this is a repeat post I apologize.

    I appreciate it.

    just get the PSP to 5.00 m33-6
    and it will work just fine
    and you still can play umds and as well ISOs so you can save the umd from getting messed up

    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    But in order to do that youll need a pandora battery and a Magic Memory Stick. If you google for a pandora battery theres one somewhere for $7-$8. And as long as you have at least a 156mb MS you can make a MMS.

    Sorry maybe a phrased my question incorrectly. What do I gain by downgrading to 1.5 and adding a custom FW? More game play capabilities. Am i still able to play all of my UMD games etc. What are the pros/cons?

    Thanks,

    I believe you can't downgrade to 1.5

    And what's the point, it's the same as just upgrading to 5.00 M33-6.

    Just follow Ryu and Gregerson.

    but,

    as for this:

    What are the pros/cons?
    Pros:
    Can play 'backups'
    don't need a UMD.
    Homebrew: i.e. Emulators, and other homebrew apps.
    don't need to buy PSX games from the PSN, if you own the game (or if you don't) you can put it on your PSP.
    etc.
    the possibilities are limitless.

    Cons:
    none?

    OK, I was under the impression that you had to downgrade to 1.5 before going to the m33 FW.

    Thank,

    on certian versions, such as 2.80(?), it was possible to exploit a system weakness to downgrade to the 1.5 firmware, and from there, to whatever firmware you wanted, that's probably what gave you the idea

    I believe 3.50 is the latest FW that you can downgrade from, but only if you have the UMD Lumines. Other than that Pandora is what you need.

    Custom Firmware (CFW) is just as good as Official Firmware (OFW) + more. Just as Xitherun said the possibilities are endless. You can play emulators from atari to N64 and some PC emulators too. There are a ton of apps too.

    Without CFW, I wouldnt even use my PSP, and I use it every day.
