    Theres so many new things to do to pimp your psp, has anyone wrote a faq/guide that details the pros and cons of each thing, or what each thign does and doesnt do,...firmware emulators, devhook, custome firmware, etc....

    I currently use devhook 0.46 and was wondering which is the next direction to take, but with so many options, I have to wonder which is best for what...

    I am at 1.5, and have to say that playing ISO's is way cool, but its also good to be able to do the homebrew stuff, emulators, Doom, Sudoku, stuff like that....and now theres the "popstation" or PS1 emulator, which id like to learn more about....can anyone guide me in the next evolution of my PSP?....

    thanks in advance...and sorry if I sound n00bish.

    You can only play PSX games on 3.03OE custome firmware, you canplay ISO's straight from the memory stick, no need to to run devhook. Homebrew straight from the memory stick and you get all the functionality of 3.03 too.

    Quite why anyone wouldn't upgrade is beyond me. You still get people saying they will stik with devhook, but that makes no sense to me. But each to their own I suppose.

    @ggbarnum...so you say that 3.03 oeb can do everything devhook can do and more?....but 3.03oeb is not actual firmware right?....i start with my 1.5 then install all this oeb stuff?

    yes 3.03OEB is firmware. It is custom firmware created by Dark Alex. It is a fusion of 3.03 and 1.5, it gives you the functionality of 3.03 with all perks of 1.5

    Yes you need to be at 1.5 to install it. I think the order is something like install 3.03OEA, upgrade to 3.03OEA' then upgrade to 3.03OEB, but follow a guide for the full instructions.

    The only reason I didn't wanna upgrade from DH 0.46 cause I had no interest in playing PS1 games at the time, now that has all changed, since I upgraded to 3.03OE-B (thanks to guano) but yea there is no need to upgrade if you're not interested in PSX games... I kinda liked those DH customs gui's though.

I just want to be sure before i go through the steps...sorry, that was more than one question....

    Yes, you can. whether you have a TA-082 system or not, but first you would have to downgrade to 1.5 then upgrade to 3.03 OE-A and then upgrade to 3.03 OE-B if you want but there isn't much difference between these two CFs.

    I'm still a noobz and already succeded making my 2.71 PSP with ta-082 into 3.02oeb. But I still get confused how to play ISO. Where to put the ISO files?
    Could you explain to me, what do you mean by saying that we can play ISO right from the memory stick?

    Here's where some people get confused I guess. Some say that you can upgrade from 2.71, some say no. I am sold on the OE thing I guess, but I'd like to know first if it's advisable to upgrade to 3.02OE first and then to 3.03. Or can you just jump into 3.03 OE-A? I am currently running devhook 0.51, 3.02 FW.

    Thanks.

    I think what people mean is that you can upgrade to Dark_Alex's 3.0x OE from 2.71 SE.

    Revision C (3.03 OE-C) is an upgrade. They're all upgrades (Revisions A, A', B, C), and C is the latest.
