PSP Homebrew Question
« on: December 31, 2012, 06:27:07 PM »
I am looking to put some homebrew or emulation on my PSP but I wonder about the risks as well as the rewards of the homebrew. I have PSP 3000.

Well I had a home brew PSP and it worked pretty well, though I can't use it anymore because it was a 1000 and those are doomed.  But I was able to play Emulators on it and it ran no problem.

... they've finally cracked the mysterious PSP-3000 model?

So, alright.  To be brief: If you incorrectly install a custom firmware on to your PSP, there's a chance you could render it entirely useless -- IE "brick" it.  However, by this point, installing custom firmware is pretty much foolproof.  And of course, once it's installed, you get to do things like play emulators, run custom software, and maximize the potential of your PSP considerably! (I love overclocking my PSP.  <3)

All and all, the benefits far outweigh the risks, if you're willing to take the risks.  :3

Yeah I'm really wondering if you can actually hack a 3000 model because I know 2 years ago they couldn't.

Awwww.... don't say that.

In any case, PSP 3000 is pretty much hackable on any firmware. Just look it up and do intensive RESEARCH into it.

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

Mine can go on the internet just fine, I use that more than I actually play the games.
