Don't upgrade to a sony firmware at all, get the cutom firmwares from Dark_Alex, 3.71M33 is the latest and greatest. You can still run homebrew and play backup ISO's but you also get all the benefits of the current sony firmware.
psp-hacks.com has all the files you would need.
omg thanks man. so its best I buy the psp with firmware 1.5. Thanks
Well the main reason why I want a psp is to browse the net not really games
I have one and never knew you could browse the net with it.Is that so?
yes, it has it's own web browser but it's not very good and flash support is very limited (flash 6 and below just abuot work). But the browser constantly runs out of memory.
I've been useing it just for games and movies.Had no idea,will have to try it out.
lol ok Azoth. Hell i just need it to experiment my hacking abilities.... lol like streaming my satelite pc tv to the psp and so much more..
Public domain torrents and Miro have movies already converted for use with the psp format.
