Several of us here have been discussing the theory I'm about to share with many more of you in a thread that's a little out of the way.
Now our main idea is this. It involves no messing with the firmware, or any hardware tweaks, and there has not been a reason raised sofar why it would not work. but we're proposing to use a paging system, much like those shown in ps1 memory cards bigger than 1mb, which only allowed 15 blocks of storage. Bigger (unofficial) memory cards used this paging system which allowed you to change the "page" and move onto a different fifteen blocks. Now if this rule could be applied to the psp's 4gb limit, then essentially even a 100gb usb powered HDD could be used, with 4gb partitions that could act as pages.
The psp would recognise this as another memory card being inserted.
Now I am only just learning C, so my programming abilities would come in dead last compared to many others on these forums. I have to know how easy or how difficult it would be to code such a system? its more costworthy than the microdrive solution also, as you can pick up one of these 100gb drives for around Ģ98 or $180 on ebay.
Now this is not my theory of course... I'm just trying to make it more widely viewed, but if anyone could help me get this theory to datel or neoflash then they just might be able to improve on their devices.
share your thoughts guys. I could be dead wrong. I hope theres a solution to this 4gb limit though.
