    So im in 3.55, did the exploit on the game, have TN-R running, PSP games run fine.

    Now i spent hours searching how to put PS1 or emulator on it and it just seems impossible, i tried: 1_Doing the install.zip thing, it just shows a BSOD when loading the memory stick. 2_Writing to /PSP/GAME via FTP, throws an error. 3_CHanging the folder name to PSP2 and then renaming it, doesn't work, when you change the name it fucks up everything.

    What else did i miss? =(

    PS1 requires TN-X to get proper sound emulation, the audio is being run through Vita hardware inaccessible via the standard PSP exploit, and so cannot be fixed. The alternative sound plugin is quite dodgy, you pretty much have to be on 3.18 for proper PS1 emulation on the Vita.

    The rule is, if you go past 3.18, you lose near-perfect PS1 emulation via TN-X. But you can gain faster speed in Rejuvenate so it balances out a bit.

    ^ I was told 3.20 was the sweet spot for anyone running TN-X

    3.20 is the PSTV version of 3.18, nearly identical. So 3.18 is the last TN-X compatible Vita firmware, 3.20 the only (as it was the initial firmware I believe) TN-X compatible PSTV version.
