    I was thinking about buying a PSP Go at the beginning of the summer because I just don't like carrying around my current PSP in my pocket along with my phone and keys and I want something with me that plays my music, a few TV shows, and games. The thing is, I currently have a PSP-2000 and have a decent amount of games for it. It would be great to dump my UMD games to a memory stick with my current PSP and then put them on a PSP Go, but for that I would need CFW on a PSP Go. Has there been any word on anyone releasing PSP Go CFW? If not, is it likely that there will be CFW by the beginning of Summer 2010? I'd love to have most of my music along with some PS1/PSP games with me.

    My guess is that it will either take a long time, or never come at all.

    If you are truly waiting for a CFW to be released for the PSP Go, I advise you to be very, very patient.

    Well, a long time is kinda vague... Do you think we will have it around July 2010? If I can't have my PS1 games like the Persona 2 games and Policenauts and my PSP games that aren't on PSN (aka Crisis Core), I don't think I'll buy a PSP Go.

    There is no way to tell when it will come.
    Lets just sit back and relaxt or if you are skilled put some time into finding exploits.

    Meanwhile if you want pick up a fully hackable PSP 100x or 200x model to play your backuped UMD`s and to play your homebrews so you do not have to buy them again for the PSPGO! untill it gets hacked. [​IMG]

    Seeing the fact you have a 200x model you could buy a PSPGO!
    I would put it in the closet till the day it gets hacked.
    To be on as low as possible firmware and be able to enjoy any possible hack as it comes out.

    I would say if the PSP Go! is likely to never be hacked. The only people skilled enough to find an exploit aren't stupid enough to release it with only a window of a few hours where the exploit will be useable (if the exploit is a game exploit).

    The reason being for this is that it's uncommon to find an exploit which can be used from the XMB and the Go! doesn't have a UMD drive so the game would have to be acquired from the PS Store and Sony can remove the game as soon as it hears word of the exploit.

    Although it's unfortunate I am somewhat happy Davee hasn't released his exploit. It's rubbish how he was treated like shit for no ISO support in his 5.03 HEN and he's been flamed intensely for his PSP Go! PoC hack. So many PSP owners are ungrateful little pirate turds who can't give a shit about any of the homebrew and just want custom firmware for their ISO loading needs.

    If you are really interested in using a custom firmware just stick with the PSP-2000 and then you won't be able to update to newer custom firmware releases and not be trapped on a specific firmware.

    Why spend $200 when you can get a perfectly fine refurbished Phat for ~$110?
