I've got a RIN emulator, but not NES . You sure the NES emu even works on a V2.0? Never heard of it...... I'm also a newb so it does explain quite a bit...

Heres the readme from the 8.5 loader.


This program builds on the work done by Saotome to load homebrew EBOOT.PBPs
into PSPs with v2.0 firmware, using the TIFF exploit. It will not work
on any other firmware version - including v2.01.

It currently cannot run all known homebrew, but it uses a number of tricks
to get substantially further than ever before. Known limitations are:

- Can't run kernel-mode applications.
- That means anything that uses wi-fi or USB access, or emulates ISOs/UMDs.
- Some minor system calls are still unsupported.

It's also still very much in development, so you should expect a few bugs,
and for not every EBOOT to run perfectly. A common problem is a load buzzing
noise when starting up some emulators, so you may want to play with your PSP
volume turned down.

To use:

- Extract all the files into the root folder (e.g. "F:\") of your memory
stick. You need these files to be in the right place:

- Copy the homebrew you want to run to your memory stick. Usually, this
means unzipping a directory that contains an EBOOT.PBP file to somewhere
under \PSP\GAME\. The exact location and folder name usually doesn't matter,
but for best compatibility you should try to use the same names as
originally shown in the homebrew ZIP file.

If the instructions with the homebrew contain separate steps for v1.0 and
v1.5 firmwares, then usually you'll get best results by following the
v1.0 instructions.

NOTE: If the homebrew is written in LUA, you need to copy it to a subdirectory

- Make sure you have a custom wallpaper set. Any image will do.

- Use the PSP's built-in photo viewer to open the "EBOOT loader 085" folder,
this will cause the loader to start. If your PSP hangs at this point,
then try the following:
- check your firmware version. This loader is for v2.0 ONLY.
- check that you have the loader files in the correct place (see above)
- turn your PSP completely off, then back on again. The loader works
best on a freshly-rebooted PSP.
- try setting a custom background - some people have reported that it
works better if you use a custom wallpaper (any image).
- try 'touching' the TIF image file : see 'fixing up the file times'

- The loader displays a list of files in \PSP\GAME. Use the up and down
buttons to change the current selection (highlighted in red), and X to
open an EBOOT.PBP file or browse into a folder.

NOTE: To load LUA applications, you need to run the EBOOT.PBP that is in
the \PSP\GAME\USER_LUA folder, which will launch Lowser and let you
browse to open the application.

- Once you select an EBOOT.PBP to load, after a few moments, the loader
will either display an error message, or give you the option to run
the application.

- To exit the application, you need to reboot your PSP.
The loader contains in-built support for rebooting, by holding the
Left Trigger, Right Trigger and START buttons together for 1 second.
If this doesn't work, then you can also reboot by removing the battery,
or holding the power switch for at least 10 seconds.
Note that sometimes after a software reboot, the loader will hang if you
try to run it again. This seems to be much rarer if you enter USB mode
briefly, before running the loader again.
