    I was thinking of installing some CFW into a PSP 1000, but wondered which would be the best option to work with? I was thinking of going with Dark Alex, but I noticed that there was some 6.60 CFW out. Usually the rule of thumb is that the older the firmware the better (fewer restrictions), but sometimes you need a certain firmware to get something to work. I'm only offering these two up as possibilities, rather than as something I was planning on to go with, as I was wanting to get a more rounded opinion from others.

    The older the better? By far not. The older the less games will work on it. The older the better only works for PS3. DAX has been out of the game for years, so I wouldn't use one of his firmwares (5.00 M33-6 was his last, I think). I guess your PSP is on official firmware at the moment? If yes, get the latest official, then use 6.60 PRO or 6.60 ME LCFW as a homebrew enabler (hen) for installing 6.60 ME latest version full CFW.

    Actually mine is a PSP 1000, and I was preferring a permanent CFW; I've gotten sick of having to enable the CFW every time. Sure, it's gotten easier than what it used to be, but still...

    That's what I described. You are not able to load and install the permanent CFW if you don't use hen or a pandora battery, so just use a hen to install permanent CFW. After doing this the CFW is permanent and doesn't have to be activated every time.

    Sorry about that; I misunderstood what you were saying. I looked into the latest CFW, and after using the current version of hen, got it running just fine. I latter learned that Remote Joy doesn't work on it just yet without some work around involved, but I'll give it a try before having to do something drastic like downgrading.
