Im currently downgrading to 1.5 so im able to do the things ive always wanted with my psp! but is there more up to date firmware such as 3.03 by Dark Alex? that will allow me to run a ps1 emulator?

well i use 3.40 OE-A and it rocks because you have internet browser psx games and you can play higher firmware required games.

Ok Steve thanks, can i ask do u need any emulators? or can i just use my roms of my ps1 games i already own?

Im pretty sure you can burn your own but im not sure how to use it because i just download mine so theres probably guides out there for it though.

PS. no u need no emulators its built in just look for guides on how to get them running.

I definitely recommend upgrading to one of the custom firmwares. Whether you chose 3.40 OE-A or 3.52 m33-2 is a matter of personal preference, but I would recommend going to 3.40OE first.

The advantages of the custom firmwares make it well worth it. You get the web browser and RSS stuff, the PS1 emulator (POPS) and the recovery menu, which makes customising the VSH easier and safer.

i would say that there is _NO REASON AT ALL_ to stay on 1.5. and there hasnt since last christmas when we were able to play psx games + all the old emus on the new Custom OE firmwares!
