    Hi.
    Either today, or soon, i'll be getting a PSP at the PX for $219.99 + a 10% discount, so it would be around the $198's. It comes with some ATV game, a movie, and a 1GB stick.
    But yeah i'd like to mod it and stuff, so where would I start. I read a few tutorials and stuff and they seem kind of easy.
    As for firmware, I always want my stuff to be updated to the latest...stuff as possible, and a lot of these mod threads are making you downgrade. Is that really necessary?

    OK dude. First welcome to the Forums. Second, are you in the Army or one of your relatives? Third, when you get you PSP go to settings, then system settings and check the firmware version you have. If you have 3.10 or higher, then you are not going to be able to mod. It you are 3.03 or lower you will be able to mod.

    When people talk about downgrading it is because you have to have firmware version 1.5 in order to upgrade back up to a custom firmware. There is a few custom firmwares you can choose from, all of which allow you to mod, such as customize your psp and play homebrew applications. I personally run 3.03OE-C, because it allows for more customization that any other custom firmware at the moment. So yes, if you want to mod, then it is necessary to downgrade. But understand that when you upgrade to a custom firmware it runs just like a official sony firmware, just allows to mod. So don't worry about it being any different. But im letting you know now, if you get your psp and automatically upgrade to the highest firmware which is 3.30 at the moment you WILL NOT be able to mod!

    If you want to mod it you will not be able to keep it up to date with the latest firmware. The reason people downgrade is because newer official firmwares block the ability to mod your psp. You can install custom firmware that will have most of the features of the latest firmware but still allow you to mod your psp. Whatever you do, make sure you research before rushing home with your new psp and updating to the latest firmware. If you update to the latest firmware you'll be stuck there and unable to mod since there is no downgrader for it yet.
