    I learnt over my own curiosity, i knew any console is hackable, i did my ps1 when i was 7 y/o, and found out about custom firmware through google, and eventually did it, now all i do is listen to what a feeling on it and help others on hacking theres

    I have a similar experience the the one above. I've modded different consoles and I am a quick learner at anything technology related. Someone that knows I can fix electronics gave me their bricked PSPs thinking there was nothing they could do to fix it. (He said SONY told him it would cost over $100 to fix it)

    I googled "psp black screen green light" and kept googling until I found out how to repair the PSP. I got CFW and hooked the PSP up and gave it back to him. From there I got my own PSP and put cfw on it and started a website.

    I've been in the "scene" since nearly the start, long before custom firmware existed. How did i get into hacking in the first place, well i really don't remember, but i assume curiosity, as i've hacked/chipped other things before it.

    Oh by the way:

    Back in 2005, I was curious to see what my new psp could do. So I went online and found PSP-Hacks.com (I believe is no longer available) Somehow, I ended up here. Maybe through a link?

    i was stupid, had no idea what a pandora was, made one (thus destroying the only battery i had xD), and got stuck with a "broken" psp. searched more around the intawebz and found hercules' amazing guide only to realize i successfully made a pandoras battery. made the mms and installed the custom firmware. but i never really knew it was custom untill a week or two after

    love in my mind..."
