    Hey guys,
    I've been doing research for the past few days on how to hack my PSP and I keep running into tutorials with missing files and such, mostly I believe due to how old they are. I have a PSP 2000 (Vader) system software version 5.55. I mostly want to set this up for SNES, NES and Genesis. Could someone point me to a tutorial that is a updated permanent hack, without needing to get a Pandora battery? I wasn't sure if Pro 6.2 was a good choice or if there is something else I should use?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    The stickies here are updated and have links to filetrip, gbatemp's file hosting site, which is working fine.

    You'll want to use the 6.20 PRO option, yes.

    Alright I got the hack to work! That was pretty simple, thanks! Next question, when running through the emulator page, I notice some of the "folders" don't have an actual Rom folder in them along with the boot file. Do I need to add one? or do I just place the Rom files in the folder with the boot file?

    You can usually add one wherever, many don't include one just in case you want to keep your ROMs somewhere above that folder (say, /ROMs/ in the root of your memory stick).
