    So I recently purchased a PSP 1000. It's used, but in good condition. I've been looking around for methods on how to play roms and isos and such on a PSP and am already aware that I'd need custom firmware and I'm relatively sure I know how to do that. Before I do it though, I'd just like to know what the risks are as well as any disadvantaged and such this may cause me.

    There are no real disadvantages. About the only risk would if your CFW (custom firmware) installation gets interrupted somehow and possbily the system gets partially 'bricked'. I have no experience with this and it's never happened to myself or anyone I've dealt with. Otherwise, CFW uses the same interface/XMB that the official Sony firmware uses - so the switch is pretty transparent. And updating to CFW these days is easy and pretty fool-proof. So no worries! Once you upgrade, you'll at least have the OPTION of putting on whatever homebrew applications you wish. Good luck citizen!
