    Hi all,

    I've been out of the loop for a good few years, but have just found my old PSP 2000 series, and hope you don't mind if I ask a few questions.

    It's currently running custom firmware: 6.60 ME-1.1

    I just wondered if there's anything I should consider updating to? What I actually want to use it for is to play some old Gameboy Colour games for a podcast I play along with (shout out to Cane and Rinse) and wondered if there were firmwares which were specifically better than others for emulation etc? I also want to play some SNES games, but I remember SNES emulation always being far from flawless on PSP - has that improved over the last five years at all?

    Thanks very much in advance, all replies appreciated :)

    Sorry, one more question (and I wasn't sure how to edit my post)

    When I hacked my Vita a while back (it's no longer hacked) there was a Vita app I installed to enable me to wirelessly transfer files from my Android device or PC to the Vita. It was useful - is there an equivalent for PSP? I found Ad Hoc File Transfer or something like that, not sure if anyone's tried it and can vouch for it? Thanks!

    6.60 ME-1.1 is fine. 6.61 adds nothing as long as you already have permanent CFW.

    SNES emulation has improved somewhat. This is the latest SNES emulator, as far as I know.

    Remember to max out the settings from the default.

    The Vita app that you used probably was VitaShell using File Transfer Protocol (FTP). The PSP equivalent would be PSP-FTPD.

    I think RetroArch is on PSP finally, could look into that.

    If you bought a brand-new gaming PC would you want your games to run at 10 fps just to keep your GPU usage at 30%?
