As I couldnt copy the whole chart correctly.. Its color coordinated... If anyone is colorblind.. let me know..
What have we (re)learned so far in the QJ Homebrew series? First we had the definition of terms, then the identification of specs for each PSP model. And then we gave you the Firmware Database. See where the flow is going?
Right. The next step then is to line up the things you'll need to get your PSP to run sweet, sweet homebrew. And that's exactly what we have here for you in this issue of QJ's How-To series: What you need to get homebrew running on your PSP.
Now, don't be expecting an installation guide in this post -- we're saving that for next week. Let's take this one step at a time so the new ones out there won't be overwhelmed by all this information. Ready? Take a deep breath, then. Here we go with QJ's How-To Issue #2.
Things you need:
However, it is important to note that as each CFW is custom-made (pardon the pun), while they do, in general, harbor the same characteristics, there still are differentiations in their nitty-gritties. Also, before anything else, you have to identify which Official Firmware is in your unit.
But how do you do that? Aw, it's simple. And yes, we're addressing even the noobest of questions. Here's how to check your firmware:
With that done, you can cross-check your FW and what you need to enable homebrew with the table below.

- --> System Settings

That was a lean one, huh? Don't worry. We won't leave it at that. We'll still go in-depth into the installation procedures for the must-haves in homebrew. And what do you know, that's lined up next in QJ's How-To #3 for next week. Same time, same day, Fridays, ayt? Don't forget! Especially to the new kids on the block.
- CFW'ed PSP or homebrew compatible FW
- PSP battery for conversion
- USB cable
And for the veterans out there, do give a shoutout and lend some helping hand as well. We'll have nice long chats about this and more in our forums. Over tea and crumpets. Or nuts and ice cold beer. Whichever you want. Because here at QJ, we're all about giving you whatever you like.
*cue in T.I.* Stacks on deck, Patron on ice, and we can pop bottles all night. Baby, you could have whatever you like. I said you could have whatever you like.
Ahem, Ahem. Yeah. Guess we're done here. For now. Catch you all again next week!
