Hello everyone, I've been away from the homebrew community since FW2.50 so you can imagine the state of ignorance I'm in about all these new applications.
Recently someone I know has shown me a working ISO of monster hunter freedom 2nd on his psp, so I was thinking I'd like to get back into homebrew. Anyways, I looked around the guides on the boards and I'm still confused about some things, so I would appreciate if anyone could fill me in on a few things:
NOTE: I have 2 Older model psps that were bought when they first came out. One is at FW 3.00 and the other at FW 2.00 and I also own a copy of the unpatched GTA:LCS UMD and enough large memory sticks to hold whatever I need.
Am I able to install it with either firmwares that I currently own, or do I need to first use the 3.03 downgrader to go back to 1.50 before installing?
What exactly is devhook capable of? I don't understand the technical mumbo jumbo specs. More specifically-
What's the latest version/most updated Devhook available?
Which custom firmware is the latest/most debugged? Is it 3.02OE?
Same as before, do I need to downgrade to 1.50 before installing, or can I proceed using the 3.02OE installation guide with either of my current firmwares?
What is Custom Firmware generally capable of? ie- ISOs, emu, flash, etc.
Am I able to install both custom firmware and devhook on the same psp?
Which one would you recommend for ISOs/Emus?
Quite a lengthy list, thank you in advance for any help. Also, please notify me if I've gone against any TOS and I will promptly remove any part of my post necessary.
