    so you can't play any PSX games you download from the internet, only games you download through the PS3

    so theres nothing i can do about my downloaded ps1 games. do you have to activate them all individually or is it a one time activation type thing. and theres no way to install the homebrew update either?

    you can't download a ps1 game for your psp EXCEPT FROM A PS3.

    you can't play homebrew.

    if it wasn't the official firmware like if it was 3.03 OE-B (Custom Firmware) Then u could do homebrew, and downloaded ps1 games.

    Currently, no dude. :( Just be patient though, the psp homebrew community has a hand full of extremely talented devs.

    No, you have to buy them from the Sony store via your PS3.

    However, breaking news is that all 3.03 owners should be able to downgrade soon thanks to a new exploit found. Though you will need the use of an unpatched GTA:LCS UMD
