    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    I know that the god of war runs the cpu at 333 mgh (its mgh right?) instead of the usual 222. My question is, if I play the same game from my memory card via jailbreak, will it automatically run at 333 mgh (really tell me if I'm wrong about my abbreviation) or do I have to manually have to switch it?

    I'm guessing you mean megahertz? That's MHz.

    Yes! MHz!

    Yes, ISO-loaded games can change the clock rate too. Hell, you can even force the PSP to run at a certain speed with plugins and such.

    It does automatically change, though, I would recommend you to set 333 MHz for every game to boost loading times, because most games do not change MHz frequency. You can easily do it on jailbroken PSP while in XMB via VHS menu, which is triggered by SELECT button.

    EDIT - apparently, I've just checked the MHz speed in Mega Man: Powered Up via cusHOME plugin, and I'm wrong. I've set the game speed in XMB at 333/166, but the game was still playing at 222/111.

    PRO fakes the speed (that plugins and such will read) for compatibility. Whatever is listed in the recovery menu is the real one.
