    LOL, I would, I don't have a psp xD, but I'm not dumb enough to use an emulator before it has been proven by a lot of people.

    Aren't PSP games bootable on a PS3 without an emulator anyway? Or rather some guys figured out how to hack one Sony built so it'll boot them.

    Anyway, nice trick guys you caused chaos among uneducated PS3 hackers [​IMG]

    yeah, I'm not getting a PSP, just hoping PSP2 will be better, but I've seen that guy on other forums too, plus it's his first post, I wouldn't exactly trust that guy anyway

    I wonder how it exactly bricks the console, I can imagine there are a handful of different ways to do it but is it recoverable?

    Yeah, that's the same idea with everything, because you can never really trust people on the net, even I scammed before, but then I got scammed years ago and never scammed again, but yeah, I'd never trust anyone with 1- maybe 25 depends if they are well known etc, otherwise it might be like 80+ lol.

    Since the internal flash memory is still not writable, I guess they only write garbage data in the HDD.

    But since PS3 have a built in recorvery mode, you can restore it yourself.

    exactly my point. who would be playing PSP games on a PS3 "without knowledge of the emulator itself"

    thanks for a good reply. you completed my thoughts for everyone.

    I know poeple who dont have PSP wants to try in an emulator but I sure hope they will research more if it's proven or not.

    PS: Im still intrigued on the Prometheus CFW of the PSP but im one step on installing it on MY PSP 2000

    This is a horrible start for the PS3 hombrew Scene. Instead of a good start its starting from a really bad root. Come on people grew up and stop trying to make fools of yourselves by making harmful stuff that won't even make any good to you. If you are not going to do it for a good cause then don't do it.

    It reminds me of DarkFader's DS bricker. [​IMG]
    Why would anyone do such a thing?
