    It depends on what you want to do with it. If you are looking just to add homebrew on it or emulators, then you might want to upgrade to firmware 2.60 and then back down to 1.50 after that. 1.50 is the way to run everything.

    If you want to get some PSP games too, then look into dev-hook to run higher firmware without changing your existing firmware.

    You can find a lot of info in the stickys here and searching. Also, a good site to check out is pspupdates.qj.net. That is where you can find all the things you can download.

    (Also I think you might need an older copy of GTA too)

    You can downgrade a 2.0 to 1.50 without needing GTA. You can also downgrade a 2.71 without the need for GTA.

    Once you get to 1.50, you should get devhook which will let you emulate the 2.71 firmware and play backed up psp games. 1.50 also lets you run homebrew and emulators, like NES, SNES, Sega Genisis, etc.

    Look in the software section at the stickies. You should find all you need there. Let us know if you get stuck.
    Before you post please
    Read the sticky's Read the manual Use the search button Google it

    I see you are asking about ISOs. Just keep in mind, we will NOT discuss them here, give you links so you can obtain them, or anything. Just keep that in mind. We have a strict policy about ROMs and ISOs here at PSPMod.com

    Oh ok, well thats a different story then, then we can help you.
    Well, first you will be downloading DevHook. I would recommend the latest version Install that and get your BACKED UP ISOs and put them in the ISO folder in the root of your memory stick. I recommend reading the DevHook read-me or looking around the forums on DevHook
