    so i bought that Assassin's Creed bundle. it had 6.20 firmware [​IMG]
    it is completely useless after my friend gave me his PSP 1000. i installed CFW on it and bam, it's useless.
    i could sell it, but probably in highschool. but seriously, can someone give me a simple update on CFW for 6.20 OFW?

    if there are none, then i am probably gonna end up selling it.
    since it is useless for me now.

    Can't you run homebrew at least using half-byte loader?
    You could emulate GBA games with it [​IMG].

    Well you could act normal, buy the occasional game that comes along that really is worth the cash and use it as it's intended, and also it does have that HDTV port so you can stream to a bigger screen whatever you want to it the 1K can not.

    i don't wanna be normal :3

    woah half-byte loader... let me test that out !
    i actually am only interested in emulating PSP games and GBA games on the PSP. that's why i bought it x].
    hopefully this works !

    EDIT: the screen just freezes. the instant i load the save file, it tells me to press any button. i press Right Trigger once, then i press it again. After that, the screen just freezes and nothing is shown but the Patapon screen.

    You are on 6.20 and not 6.30 right?

    I used to have an OFW 6.20 PSP 3000, but was lucky to get rid of it. The HB Loader only allowed me to run a SNES emulator (with problems - at half the speed), I read somewhere that the GBA emulator can only be run if you have OFW 5.50.
    So there. It's a nice option to have but it does not compare to a fully customised PSP i.e. one that has access to kernel enabled. I strongly doubt (and all info I read on this topic confirms my doubts) that they will release a CFW for 6.20 in the future.

    urr... i just took time to wait.

    it says...
    Starting HBL R92 "insert link"
    DEBUG version
    Firmware 6.2x detected
    Building NIDs table
    and a bunch of other text that has the word --success.
    is it suppose to take that long?
    now i have a black screen...

    and yeah, i got OFW 6.20. i never even knew OFW 6.30 existed O_O.

    EDIT: okay, now i am on the screen with the list of homebrew.
    i loaded this version of the GBAemulator. but it says it is only compatible with 5.55OFW and under. when i load it in the through Half-Byte, it gives me a black screen then it turns the PSP off. if this doesn't work, then i might probably sell it since every other homebrew doesn't really interest me.

    It was released just recently, that's probably why you didn't know, the thing is, 6.30 removes that exploit.

    You need emulators and homebrew that work with the loader (HBL). The loader is a recent thing so not everything works with it yet.

    Keep your version of the loader though, yours is newer.

    The closest you can come is searching for 'HBL" on a PSP site that actually updates it's shit more than once a month.
