    Softmod Guide - Updated.
    Prowler did this.

    Newbie Guide - Updated.
    I did this.

    F.A.Q. - Updated.
    I did this. Merged the newbie guide with it since both are shorter now that 6.x is a lot easier.

    Plugin Thread - ???
    I think we need a plugin thread. Since there's so many plugins and there's like 3 plugins to do each task, somebody should make and update a list.
    Any volunteers? Here's the info from the F.A.Q, for whoever wants to use it in the guide.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Firmware Comparison - In Progress
    I vote for Xist to do this one. [​IMG] A thread comparing various firmwares and such, so people have a place to see about 5.00 M33 and such.



    You know the plugin one make a good tutorial competition entry for whoever thinks they can do it well...

    Just so you know, SOME of the Kratos Red PSP 2000s also are older mobo models. You said the Madden on can have either, so can Red.

    You sure on this? There were TWO God Of War limited editions released, one was a 2000 and one was a 3000 (and 6.x can be installed on any 2000 mobo).

    Somewhere in the middle
    All God of War PSP2000s are hackable. Same for the Star Wars one.

    Star wars ones are, but IIRC there was some reported TA088v3 GOW packs.

    Yup. You just have to get the hen for the fw you find on it.

    False.

    He could get a pre-owned PSP with newer firmware which can't play ISOs.

    Plus stores sometimes sell pre-owned stuff as new.

    Assuming the firmware is 6.35 or less, it's hackable in a way that will let you play homebrew and ISOs. The lower the firmware, the better.

    Anybody interested in doing either of these two guides for the competition?

    True, he can get a pre-owned. I didn't think of that. Though I don't think he will be getting pre-owned.

    You're saying to him that you can play backups with the firmware he finds it on, which is false because newer firmware can't play backups.

    Anything is possible.

    seeing as i'd be getting a new one from a retail store... what are the chances of being on a newer firmware or such thing? :S

    Yes, yes, I know. I should have said that "You should try and find a psp that has a compatible fw for hacking." Then I would have said to get the CFW that came with the psp.

    I know I could have said that better.

    Xist is working on the comparison one and the bulk is complete.

    Just need somebody to make a plugins one, but it should be somebody that can edit it every so often if a new interesting plugin comes out.

    I'd be willing to try, may take awhile though to track down each one, but I'll do my best.

    Though what would be needed though exactly?

    An explanation on what plugins are and how to use them, and then a list of some of the most popular and best plugins for both 5.x and 6.x firmwares, listing alternatives for each function (for example there's 3 or 4 cheat plugins and multiple ways to do screenshotting).

    Bump for a plugin thread, just in general. If somebody could cover the aspects of custom CTF themes as well that'd be great.
