    Hey everyone. How's it going? My names Matt and I'm a complete n00b to the PSP, lol

    I only just brought a PSP from EBay last night.

    This place looks good, so I'll stick around.

    Do you mean, don't upgrade my firmware? If so, why not?

    yea you should downgrade so you can put a custom firmware and play homebrew. but do research first and do everything right and don't be a noob or you could brick. i'd suggest keepng it normal for a while before playing with homebrew.

    BTW, Sorry if this isn't allowed but.. Do I need a hacked PSP to play games and movies from my memory stick?

    a brick is an artificial stone made by forming clay into rectangular blocks which are hardened, either by burning in a kiln or sometimes, in warm countries, by sun-drying.

    movies anyone can do, games youll need to have downgrade to 1.5, then upgrade to 3.03 oe-c,
    a brick is a non functional psp, which is basically nothing more than a paperweight... hence brick

    EDIT

    I know that means Firm Ware 1.5 and Firm Ware 2.71, so what would I need to do next to be able to put games on my memory stick?

    well upgrade to 3.03 oe-c, and then you must BUY a game, then install it onto your memory card with umdgen, and you should be fine, there are tutorials on the site to play UMD backups (called iso's)

    minor if you follow directions, its just as easy to brick your psp while upgrading to SONY's 3.03, so use easy installers and youll be fine, just dont turn it off and such..
