    I've never had the chance to mess with a Street, but I'll try to help, though I can't imagine I'd be much more useful than Google. What ISO driver are you running? Do the ISOs show up? What happens when you try to boot the ISO/CSO/DAX?

    Install the latest CFW for your firmware from this site: https://code.google.com/p/procfw/downloads/list

    Then use Fast Recovery to boot into CFW Mode. Once in CFW Mode, all your .ISO and .CSO from the ISO folder on the memory stick will show up in the Game section of the menu. You will have to use Fast Recovery each time you power off the device - no biggy, as it only takes a couple seconds to reboot into the CFW again.

    Oh, I was thinking you already had CFW running. To get the options, once you have CFW running, simply press select from the XMB.
    The latest version from there does have some troubles with PSN PS1 games. The builds here are unofficial builds, but the guy did fix that issue and added a bit more to it.

    I wouldn't know that as I always use the full POPS Loader setup, so I never ran into any issues. Either way, I personally recommend official stable builds, especially on systems that are not Pandora compatible, but hey. ;)

    I doubt any changes he made would cause stability concerns as he simply removed the component that was causing problems and added only aesthetic options, but either way (POPSLoader or unofficial build) he should get the same result. I use the unofficial build of Pro on my Go, seems fine. Overall, it's not my first choice for fully hackable PSPs, but the Pro series works well for partially hacked ones.

    It also is rather user friendly and great for someone just trying something new with his Street.

    I too recommend PRO firmwares, they're the best choice these days, I just prefer to use official builds - Nightlies and unofficial builds always have a larger risk of unexpected behaviour. ;)

    I like ME for my Slim cause I tend to load stuff into my NAND, but I can't imagine that many users like to mess with that stuff. I'm not worried about messing with it cause my old Pandora Battery still works like a charm. I'm also wary about untested software. I remember having some nasty problems thanks to some of the old M33 and OE CFWs before they reached their final iterations. I'm not going to recommend something that I don't have experience with myself.

    That said, what may work fine on my PSPs might not for someone that has a Street, something I haven't had a chance to test and mess with.

    You are guessing correctly. When you have them there and you're in CFW mode, they should pop up as normal, installed games in the Game section.

    In that case you'll need an installer for your version of the firmware. What OFW are you running now? The installer has to match.

    I'd go ahead and update to 6.60 OFW then run the respective CFW installer. There's little reason to be on an older firmware on the Street from what I've found googling about. Remember, you need to keep and run Fast Recovery to boot the CFW every time after you shut it off.

    True, he might as well update to 6.60, he won't be able to downgrade down to 6.20 anyways.

    You're not supposed to use cIPL Flasher, it's for earlier motherboards. You were only supposed to use Pro Updater, install the CFW and then use Fast Recovery - it reboots the system to CFW Mode. To check which mode you're in, go to the system properties and check the firmware version - it will either say 6.60 (OFW) or 6.60 Pro-X (Version, for example C, C-2, B-10 etc.) (CFW).

    When you ran Pro Update, the CFW files were written to your NAND. The cIPL Flasher modifies the IPL to allow the PSP to automatically boot into CFW, but that only works on Phats and Slims (with the exception of the v3). You can't use it on your Street. Fast Recovery does the same as the custome IPL does, but you have to manually run it. So, whenever you fully shut off your Street, you need to run Fast Recovery again to boot into your CFW.
