A question of firmwares: Fat PSP & 3.71
So, my situation is this: I have a fat PSP with 3.52-4 CFW (M33). I am ambitions of updating to 3.71 CFW, but will this affect how I make use of my 1.50 kernel and how I current enjoy emulators and the like? I've been squeamish about updating, as I do not wish to lose one of the prime reasons why I got the PSP to begin with. I understand, more or less, the slim PSP's hardware was previously something of frustration to coders as it more or less did not have compatibility for previous 1.50-enabled homebrew. But, for slim PSP users, that has been taken care of?
I suppose my question is, since I have a fat PSP, would updating to 3.71 affect how I enjoy homebrew applications? I'm none too privy to the differences between fat and slim PSPs, and the behaviors of either when using 3.71.
So... could someone perhaps aid me in my education of this? I would appreciate it. Thank you.
