Just got a PSP 10 hours ago, since then I've been reading the newbie forums here and also what you guys have to say. But I have to assure you vets I did search for this answer before asking. My PSP is brand new and in the System Information it says that my System Software is Version 2.60 (makes sense) But in one of the newbie threads it says you can determine your firmware by a letter right above the topmost UPC code on the box. Based on me not having a letter there I have Firmware Version 1.5 (North American Release) here's the link to that page: Determining PSP firmware using box codes (Dec 23, 2007). So Could I possibly have a coveted Version 1.5 so I can start customizing. Or am I misunderstanding something basic. And believe me I know one says Firmware and the other says Software. and If I seem a hair preemptively hostile it's not you, it's me, and my past experiences with being the new guy on some forum that seems like it has predatory computer tech's that hang around the newbie pages to attack us and take our dignity away from us. But Thank you, I appreciate any help. And if anybody had a short list of immediate changes or mods, that a new user might be interested in knowing about; I'd appreciate that too.
