    well, theres not too much you can do with your 2.0 psp homebrew-wise other than to downgrade to 1.5, then you have access to everything

    Actually there's been quite a lot of progress.

    We now have an EBOOT loader that attempts to run homebrew eboots on the 2.0 firmware.

    It's still a work-in-progress, but the signs are promising that we'll be able to get some emulators working. Various standalone homebrews also run now, using the loader, including:

    - Attack of the Mutants
    - Doom
    - PSP-Quake

    to give you some idea of what's possible. The only thing that looks like it is definitely impossible is using ISO loaders and UMD emulators under 2.0, because these would require kernel mode access, that's not currently possible.

    Alternatively, you can downgrade your firmware. This gives you full compatibility with all the homebrew, but you lose out on the v2.0 features:

    - AVC video support (smaller files than the SP support on v1.5)
    - ATRAC3plus audio support
    - web browser
    - better wi-fi security

    Plus, to play some of the newer games you'll probably need to run a version changer to fool them that you're still at v2.0.

    So, if you need to use ISOs, you'll have to downgrade. If not, the decision is really down to personal preference.

    The only emulator so far known to work properly is the Sega Master System / GameGear emulator.

    There's a PSP Quake port that also works (good for novelty value, but it's only barely playable).

    Attack Of The Mutants is a nicely put together game, works fine.
