Can anyone help me? My son has a psp with 2.6 firmware, how can he play a cso file?
I would downgrade to 1.50 then upgrade to 3.03 OE-C...this allows you to run ISOs & CSOs from your XMB Menu...
along with the capibility to run homebrew, you also get a recovery menu with OE-C...making it almost impossible to brick your psp...
first step, figure out what kind of motherboard you have(TA-082/non TA-082....and I can get you a downgrader link for your sons 2.60 psp...
Looked in the usb drive and there isn't any writing, does this mean that it isn't a TA-082? Whats a xmb menu? Sorry your helping a complete novice here!
Welcome to the Community!
Your best bet is searching for answers here on the boards before making a new thread.
XMB refers to the memory stick. In the PSP's Interface you can navigate through your Memory Stick to play games. And if you see no writing inside the UMD tray, like this, then you have an original TA-079 Board. The TA-082+ boards require being patched before you alter the firmware, else they will brick.
The CSO's are Compressed versions of an ISO. An ISO is the exact Copy of the UMD Data in one file. These can be pretty large and require a high capacity Mem stick. I recommend a 4GB, some games vary from 100MB to 1.5GB.
u should upgrade to 2.80 and from there on use the easy downgrader to 1.5
once ure on 1.5 u should upgrade to 3.03 OE or 3.10 OE
u can find all the needed files on www.qj.net or www.psp-hack.com
make sure u read the readmes that come with the downgrader/upgraders..u dont want to brick ur psp do u...
cso`s arent usually bigger than 1GB. i compresed my carbon iso that was 1.3 GB to 730MB,so a 1 GB would be enough for one game,but since the 4 gb gotten cheaper,u should buy a 4gb so u can store music and videos on it too
What does a devHook do? I've downloaded one onto the computer but havn't opened it yet - scary stuff!! its version 22.214.171.124
i can see myself doing something stupid and ending up buying a new psp.
u dont need devhook on ,3.03 OE or 3.10 OE devhook is out of date
just make sure u get to 3.03 OE or 3.10 OE,once ure that far,u can just store ISOs in the iso folder and launch them from ur psp under game>memorystick
Devhook is kinda old and pointless now, unless of course your a 1.50 user. Though your better off updating to the 3.03 OE's or 3.10 OE's.
Just downloaded 2.81 firmware update onto the pc, what now?
Downloaded a text file from www.psp-hack.com so i'll read that and hopefully not bother you lot anymore. Thanks for your time i appreciate it.
dont upgrade to 2.81 u must upgrade to 2.80 to use the downgrader
I recomend the 3.03 downgrader, it will patch your mobo if it detects the psp is TA-082 or higher.
yea...but he needs a unpatched GTA:LCS,and if he doenst have one,then hes stuck with 3.03
