Getting a second hand psp and need your guy's help - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
Ok I may be getting it really soon because my parent stubled upon a nice lump of cash, so I have to ask do the 2nd hand psps at eb games have firmware 2.0? I have settled on 2.0 because I can use the gta lcs method since it is the 1st game I'm gonna get, and all I plan on doin is putting emulators on it. Last thing what sites do you psp modders use to get your emulators?

Well, if you get 2.0 you can downgrade to 1.5 to have the maximum homebrew capabilities with less hassle than 2.0.

If you have anything higher than 2.0, you will need GTA:LCS to play homebrew games like someone said earlier.

That's going to depend on how old the PSP is and whether the original owner upgraded the firmware. Newer PSPs hit the shelves with newer firmware, but I would be surprised if a second-hand PSP is new enough to have had anything higher than 2.0 out of the box. After that, it's a matter of whether the original owner did a firmware upgrade or not.

It shouldn't matter anyway, the GTA:LCS softmod has been made to work on all versions higher than 2.0, even 2.6. The only big deal about 2.0 specifically is that you can downgrade to 1.5, which is not an option for you since you want to play GTA.

Ohhh ok so now I get it I can use emulators on firmwares above 2.0 but I have to use the gta mod, ok. Before I thought that 2.0 was the last firmware that could use emulators.

It was until about a month ago, maybe month and a half.

The only ones you can't use emulators on are 1.51 and 1.52, but you could easily just upgrade to 2.0 or above.

I wouldn't suggest going above 2.0 unless you need to for a game because if you ever wanted to, you could still downgrade to 1.5.

Ok, good thanks, the reason why I didn't know all of this is because I talked to a freind of mikne who has a psp and has it all hacked out, but he is a little behind in psp info I guess, thanks again guys.

Dude go on ebay and search for PSP's with firmware versions 1.5 - 2.0.

2.0 is the highest you want, i payed a ton for mine, well £240 with GTA:LCS, that golf game, Litte britain UMD + Its a white PSP

Give me a bell on MSN or whateva, ive got tonz of programs i can sed to ya.

Plus yes 2.01+ has homebrew but tbh its nothing compared to 2.0 and 1.5, half of them crash and jsut to much work to do an emulation.

Now as i have a 2.0 plus its white (that means im idolised at skool lol), Emulators and Sonic 2 rom i play it on the bog

Nerly completed by jsut playin wen on the toilet lol.

Ok, well freind is giving me a great deal on one but he said he already updated it so it might be like 2.5 or 2.6, and if this is gonna really affect my emulator abilities then I will forget getting it from him. So my question is will 2.5 or 2.6 affect my emualtor wants serverly compared to 2.0, and if it does can I downgrade the 2.5/2.6 to 2.0? Thanks for leading me through all fo this I just really don't want to waste my $ or time.

You cannot downgrade to 2.0 from 2.5 or 2.6. Homebrew that runs in application mode (as opposed to kernel mode) should run with the GTA:LCS softmod. You'll have to find a list of the specific homebrew packages that do or don't work on specific firmware versions on one of the PSP mod sites, I don't know any more than that (I'm still on 1.5, so I'm not paying that much attention to the 2.0+ world yet).
