    I heard that you can install signed homebrew on PSP without hacking...

    I forgot
    All you need to do is transfer the folder with the eboot to the GAME folder in your Memory Stick.

    But seriously, just hack your PSP. A lot more benefits than just running signed homebrew and it's easy as fuck.

    I don't have a GAME folder on the memory stick... I've searched everywhere using USB mode. Do I have to create one? If so, how and where on the memory?

    How do you not have a /GAME folder?
    Does the hack install one? I thought it was just always there.

    Hold up how are you looking though your hirachy of folders? are you using a usb cord plugged into your psp or do you have your card itself hooked to a computer?

    So just create a folder called "GAME" under the "PSP" folder and drag em into that?

    I thought so too, so either we both need vision checks or my PSP is just f***ed up.

    If you are doing the USB mode, i think the PSP can only see one level down... or something. I dont know.

    Signed programs can often be inferior (slower, older versions) than ones for hacked systems.

    ^On that matter i read today that Signed homebrew is unable to utilise the full 64MB of RAM and uses less than might be optimal for the programs. If that's the case then something like Daedalus is going to be hobbled by opting for a signed version.

    They also don't have admin access and can't access the ME (at least to the extent emulators like the ME branch of the SNES one needs), which is partially why we just suggest installing PRO or something.

    For reference for readers from the future -

    ME = Media Engine which requires Kernel access, something that the signing process doesn't allow. Which is why signing is inferior to CFW (which permits Kernel access)
