    Some people would like to play downloaded Games on their PSP's, but don't want to go through all the risks of bricking their PSP while soft/hardmodding it.

    In this Tutorial, I'll show you how to play Games and Homebrew on your PSP without hacking it.

    Very, VERY interesting. What firmware does this work with? I never heard of this, but it's pretty damn awesome!

    I guess i dont really have a use for this since my PSP is on 5.00 m33-6. I have really good compatibility but hey this is great great work. Does this work for all PSPs?

    Do you mean all PSP by model or Firmware?

    Model: Yes.

    Firmware: OFW's 6.31 and above. CFW, not very sure [​IMG] .

    Okayback.

    While CSOs can't be used, there's still a way to trim the size down. You can convert an ISO to a CSO and rip/resample stuff, and then convert it back to ISO and while it won't be as small as the CSO, it'll still be smaller than the original. You might want to include a guide on ripping when converting to CSO, such as the update folder, resampling the music/video, and hints like taking out bonus videos entirely and such.

    I think iso2eboot is the compiled (exe) form of what is being used here. It's the same thing except that it's a program, so you don't need UMDGen and you don't have to convert to ISO (as the program converts the file automatically).

    The same rules apply though: no files higher than 728mb.

    Also, I believe the EBOOT.pbp file must be smaller than 4mb in order to sign it.

    Nice guide overall.
