    Hi,

    I updated my psp 1003 to (official formware btw) firmware 6.37 (to play FFIV) and the other day the Laser rail seemed to not move and the PSP wouldn't read UMDs. I moved the rail back and forth and it seems to be loading UMDs now. ( this left me paranoid that it would happen again)

    so, I was wondering if there is some sort of ISO loader or hacks that I can apply to this model?

    Or in general, what can be done with my unhacked PSP?

    Thanks

    btw, I'm not used to the PSP tech speak so, please try to keep it simple

    If I were you I would do this, or you could do one of the steps El Gaupo mentioned.

    First you need to update to OFW 6.60 and then install CFW, here is how you can do it.

    You can either update to 6.60 OFW by system update or you can manually download it yourself. If you do system update with the psp skip these first steps.(also skip if your already on 6.60 OFW)


    1) Download and extract the 6.60 OFW and keep it where you can find it:6.60 OFW - Downloads - PSPMOD.com - PSP Forum, Hack PSP, PSV Hacks, PS Vita Hack, PSVita
    2) Go to USB connection on the psp and pull up the drive that the psp is connected to on the computer.
    3) Now open the PSP folder and then the GAME folder and then in that GAME folder make a new folder named UPDATE (all caps)
    4) Put the 660 OFW EBOOT in that update folder and then exit USB mode.
    5) Go to GAME in the psp XMB and run it.

    Now to install CFW.

    1) Download the CFW from this link: 6.60ME-1.6 (OFW Version) - 6.60ME-1.6 (OFW Version) - Downloads - PSPMOD.com - PSP Forum, Hack PSP, PSV Hacks, PS Vita Hack, PSVita Now Go to USB mode on the psp
    and go to the GAME folder just like you did in above steps. (See steo 3 above if you don't know how to find the GAME folder)
    3) Delete the UPDATE folder because you will no longer need it. (Only do this step if you did the above steps for installing OFW)
    4) Place the ME_INSTALLER in the GAME folder.
    5) Exit USB mode and go run the ME_INSALLER. Run that in the XMB, go to GAME and then MEMORY STICK.


    If you decide to do this get back to us on this thread and someone will show you how to dump your own UMD's to your memory stick.
    In an Ideal world I would have all ten fingers on my left hand and my right hand would just be used for punching.

    So...I have a few questions

    -if I install the custom firmware will I be able to play emulators and converted PSX games?
    -is there an ISO loader?
    -Will I still be able to use my UMDs without dumping them?
    -is there a chance of me bricking the psp while getting the CFW installed?

    Yes you will be able to use EMUs and converted PSX games.
    ISO loader is already in the CFW
    And yes you will be able to still use the UMD drive as normal.

    So which is better? to stay on 6.37 or update to 6.60?

    I don't have a pandora battery or magic memory stick, would I need them?

    I have never used 6.37 but I figure its mainly the same, So if I were you I would just update to 6.60 since its the latest.
    No you don't need Pandora or MMS to hack PSP's anymore, you only need them to unbrick just in case you get a brick.

    But as long as you follow the directions you shouldn't ever get a brick. Just as an example I have been using CFW for years and I
    have never had a brick.
