Outdated PSP - What to do?
First off, let me apologize if these questions have already been answered, but I, myself, couldn't find them.
I've got the Star Wars Edition PSP (model 2001, and I believe it's non-TA-088) that a friend Pandora'd for me. It is currently running 3.71 M33-2 firmware. It also has no other plugins that I'm aware of. My questions are:
What CFW should I upgrade to, and what would the process be? Does it still run ISOs and CSOs? Do I need to get my hands on a Pandora to do it? (A bit of a sub question: I've read that homebrew can now be executed on OFW. Does this include ISO launchers?)
How can I enabled registering the PSP for Remote Play once the FW is upgraded?
Are there any plugins I might need or want?
As you can tell, I've been out of the loop for a bit, and need some help coming back in it! So I also apologize if I seem n00bish as well during our communications.
You might want to upgrade your PSP's firmware version to either 5.00 M33-6 or 5.50 GEN D3, then patch whatever firmware version you've chosen with 5.00 Prometheus 4 (5.00 M33-6) or 5.50 Prometheus 4 (5.50 GEN D3). No need for Pandora battery + magic memory stick. All you need are the right updates for your PSP which can be downloaded here on this site.
All custom firmware and semi-hack firmware on PSP's are capable of running ISO/CSO games which the official firmware is not capable of.
You might want the following plugins installed in your PSP:
cxmb = to enable custom themes be applied on your PSP
TimeBatteryPercent = displays the battery charge, date, and some notes (optional) while on xmb menu
game categories = categorizes files contained in the ISO folder, GAME folder, GAME150 folder according to your menu style of choice
batterywarning = shows a warning on your screen whenever your PSP's battery charge has gone low
Does 5.50 GEN-D3 with Prometheus allow Remote Play to be activated?
Turns out Remote Play does work. So, to recap what I did:
Started with a Star Wars Edition PSP-2001 (TA-085 Motherboard) running 3.71 M33-2.
Had to do an intermediate update to 4.01 M33, as XGEN updater crashed when running straight off 3.71.
Once updated to 4.01 M33, I was able to use XGEN Updater to upgrade to 5.50 GEN-D3.
After that, I patched to 5.50 Prometheus-4.
Once that was said and done, I installed cxmb, Game Categories, and Battery Warning. TimeBatteryPercent didn't work for me for some reason, although I could have just done something wrong. I'll try it again.
NOTE: Make sure you're not attached to your theme if you do this, as upgrading will format your flash at some point. Luckily, mine was still on my MS.
NOTE2: When cxmb is enabled, normal .p3t themes won't register in the system at all.
Big thanks to you, dothackjhe!
Glad to be of help!
Ummmm... .P3T is a PS3 theme, you mean .PTF, right?
