    but here goes.

    Im currently in australia atm and ive got my hands on a PSP for cheap.
    I have a PSP back at home in the UK which i left behind.... I bought it off ebay with a number of games (ISOs & CSOs) When i want to play a game i just load it onto my memory stick and it comes up in the menu screen and with one click im playing it...

    NOW...

    Heres my problem.. With this PSP ive got. I want to get the same thing happening. I've got a firmware of 1.52.. Where do i go from there? Could anyone take some time to quickly run me through how i can get this psp the same as my one back home? ( I Have a lap top with loads of games but unable to play them)
    Your help would be much appricated.

    thanks

    Are you sure it's 1.52 not 1.50?? cause I've never heard of a 1.52 PSP....check your FW again and post back...

    1.52 was the FW that UK psps were shipped with.

    you will need to downgrade

    i recommend upgradiung to 2.0 and using the mph downgrader OR get a pandoras battery / mstick combo and use that

    you need to dg to 1.50 and then install custom fw (m33 by Dark_Alex is my recommendation).

    About 0%, if you did, it'd be seriously unlucky :/ But you could fix it anyway if you made a Pandora Battery (easy using your other PSP).

    before copying the theme files over to the relevant folders, did you backup those folders? If you did, just copy the backups to the flash again and it should be working.

    Yea, you REALLY should have made a backup of your flash0 before doing anything to it... if you didn't you'll have to recover back to 1.50 using a recover folder.

    Also, in answer to your other question earlier - It needs a UMD in the drive to trick your PSP into thinking you're playing a legal game, same as the copy portection on a PC, try and run a game without the CD/DVD inserted and it'll tell you it can't run. Though, as with a PC, there are ways of getting round this; change your UMD mode to "Sony NP 9660" (using the recovery menu or VSH) and you then won't need a disk in the drive.
