    I just downgraded 2 psp's
    one using the GTA exploit and another using Pandora's battery.
    I can't believe myself [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They're both on 3.71 M33-4
    I managed to setup popsloader as well and I tested a few ps1 and psp games.
    Is there anything else I should know?

    Also, what games should I get, considering I'll only have the PSP for a week?
    The reason for this is because I told my friend I would need a week to fix it while I did it all last night [​IMG]

    And a final question is... is the PSP charger something unique to the PSP or can you use something else to charge it?
    I'm asking this because I noticed it had a miniUSB cable so maybe I could use other chargers too.
    Its because I'm left without a charger since the guy never gave me his.

    You can play MGS Portable Ops. It's not too long and it has great graphics and gameplay[as good as PS2 games]. I couldn't play much games with my PSP myself yet [​IMG] ALSO PLAY PIRATES SINCE IT'S THE BEST GAME EVER !!!!

    I think you can charge the PSP using the miniusb but I'm not sure. And you might also find some other chargers that are compatible with PSP. I haven't tried it but it looks like it's a standard port so, just look around the house, you'll never know [​IMG]

    I looked around the house but I haven't seen anything which will charge my PSP.
    I was wondering if its possible to charge from the USB port?

    Probably not... Just buy a cheap 3rd party charger.

    Are you sure he's your "friend"? Because from what you write it surely doesn't sound like it. Wouldn't a "friend" give back that stuff immediately?

    Maybe I wasn't specific enough.
    I downgraded 2 PSP's yesterday.
    One was a friends. Another was a friend of a friend.
    Since my "friend" is a complete noob at PSP modding, I told him that because his PSP was already fine, I could do it in a few hours but because his friends PSP was bricked (unbricked using pandora battery) I would need a lot more time.
    I guess I'll have to tell my friend to tell his friend to give me the charger or else I cant fix it [​IMG] .

    Hell yes, every thread has a..

    "Pirating is bad!!!"
    "You're mean!!!"
    "Why so gay!??!"

    But meh, thats why I love this place.

    And yes, pirating is bad, I'm not arguing that fact.

    Yay for hypocrites!

    Piracy is a whole other issue. He lied straight into this guys face and told him he'd need a week to fix his problem. Come on, how can you agree with that?

    to each there own, its none of my concern, by the way he never said he charged either one to do it so i say him keeping it a week counts as a type of payment.

    my mechanic said my truck was only going to take a day to fix and the fucker kept it two weeks and only worked on it for 2 hours hows that fair? lol and i paid the asswipe $262.58

    I can see him letting you use his PSP for a week after modifying. I did the same with my brother, but I told my brother outright that it would take me 10 minutes to modify, but I'm gonna borrow it for a week. He didn't seem to mind [​IMG]

    Mind you, that was a while ago, since then I've gone through 4 PSP's... 2 black ones, a white one (brand new, didn't open, sold to my boss), and now have a Silver Slim. They're great little machines, and if you've got the cash to spare, you should get one. I play on it as well as my DS Lite because both have great games [​IMG]

    No big deal, using it for a week as a reward for repairing it. But, I dunno, it seems just wrong to me telling him it takes so long and not being straightforward with it. But yeah, to each his own and it really is none of my concern. Sorry for sticking my nose too deep into other peoples business.

    Ha ha, I understand your good intentions. It really wouldn't change anybody's life if he were straight forward.

    I don't see whats so morally challenging about me keeping the PSP of a stranger who expects me to do a favor for him without payment?

    You could help me by being a bit more specific.
    If his PSP won't load games then he might have an original FW.
    You need a custom FW to play iso's.

    If he does have a PSP with a CFW then tell me which one it is and I might be able to help you.
