    I just got a PSPGO [​IMG] so obviously I am new to the scene and I have been doing my own research on how to play converted PSX games on it. It currently has OFW 6.20 (loaded, not upgraded) on it and I don't see any method (without huge risk of bricking it) to lower the OFW to use a CFW.

    Anyway, my question is, is there currently a CFW that can play converted PSX games on it for a 6.20 PSPGO?

    You need to use a HEN + Prometheus ISO loader OR 6.35 PRO-A in order to play backups. At the momet, there is no support for POPS (PSX loading) but there will be in 6.20 TN-D and 6.35 PRO-B.

    DO NOT DOWNGRADE from 6.20. No reason to, and you can't on the Go anyways (to anything useful, at least).

    Just use TN-C or upgrade to 6.35 and use PRO-A. Check out their feature and see which you prefer.

    Somewhere in the middle
    There's a 6.20 TN-D and 6.35 PRO-B being worked on which are going to include POPS support, so you just have to be patient and wait for those.

    Thanks schlupi, that is what my research was showing me, but I just wanted a straight answer. I have decided to try out TN-C first and wait for TN-D I guess.

    Also, will the emulators work with TN-C?

    Netherlands, currently
    You don't need an emulator to play PSX games on the PSP, just popsloader support.

    You don't even NEED popsloader support, just the ability for the HEN to utilise pops.

    Sorry, I guess I should ahve specified, I actually meant the retro emulators (N64, Genesis, etc) not a PSX emulator.

    You shouldn't have any problems running the emulators from the sticky if you're using 6.20 TN-C
