psp knowledge needed
Hey guys! slimvader here again with some more questions.
The whole point of this thread is for me to understand what i have. First off, i have been reading around and i still dont understand my UMD mode in recovery mode. What does all the options really mean? The things i have read have been pretty vague. The next one i dont understand is the 1.fake region. i understand that i can change regions for diff countries, but what about the debug modes? what are they for? 2.What is Hide pic0.png and pic1.png in game menu? what is this? im not getting any answers on that as well.
3.What is the purpose of toggle flash 0-3? i have used flash 0 for my custom theme, but dont know what the others are. Another question is, 4.how much space is used for each directory under each flash? 5.What are the 2 options under advanced? (PLAIN MODULES IN UMD/ISO) and (EXECUTE BOOT.BIN IN UMD/ISO) i have put some cso's on, and have noticed a bin file. IS BOOT.BIN FOR THESE TYPES OF FILES?
6.What are kernals for? In my recovery menu it says i only have 1.50 and 5.xx. Are these used for certain apps in my game folder that require a certain CFW? On that note 7.can i add new ones? or do i need to install additional CFWS? Also, talking about kernals im wondering if my CFW (5.00m33-6) will run everything homebrew wise? 8.What is HEN?
And lastly, I'm going to buy a memory stick adApter to use 2 micro sd cards. if i buy this 9.can i make it into a mms? And if i can, 9.can i just use 1 micro sd card and mod the other later? Sorry about all the questions, but this has been on my mind for a while.
thx agaain, i could search for hours on this topic, but i have a full time job and 2 children and my time is rather limited, so im asking here.
1)I don't know what it the debugI and II too :(
2)It hides the pic0.png and pic1.png in game mune in the xmb.The eboots have a icon0.png that is the small icon that appears in the menu.An pic1.png that is a pic that used as wallpaper in the eboots and it comes out after the icon0.png.A pic0.png that probably contains some info fort he games.A icon1.pmf that it has a small video that appears in the game menu after the icon0.png and a snd0.at3 that contains sound for the eboot.
3)In the flash1 are saved all the settings.
4)It depends.It isn't standard.
5)If you open an ISO game then you will see a BOOT.BIN and a EBOOT.BIN files.The BOOT.BIN is the decrypted version of the EBOOT.BIN but in some games is only a dummy file.Now some files need some modification to play in the older FW so we mod the BOOT.BIN and then enable this option from the recovery to execute the BOOT.BIN instead of the EBOOT.BIN.
6)The 5.XX kernel is your current kernel(5.00 m33/5.02 gen/5.03 gen/5.55 gen).Now If you select the 1.50 kernel you will be able to run app for the 1.50 FW.They are some app with two folder and one of them has the % symbol.
7)Yes you can use 1.50 and 5.00 kernel apps in 5.00 m33-6.
8)Hen is exploit that used to hack psp in some FWs.
9)You can use it as mms but my opinion is to buy a PRO DUO.If you want high capacity and high speeds then buy a Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo 16GB Mark II
Hey. Hope this will clear some stuff for you.
Your UMD modes are for using ISO's and stuff. We can't go into detail because of the nature of it, but you can pretty much stick on Sony one and have no issues.
1. Fake region allows you to play games from different countries and zone, etc.
2. Hiding the pics will hide the pics you see when you hover over a game without starting it. To see, try it and find out.
3. All the flash is used for firmware and settings. Dont need to really worry about it.
4. I have no idea, really.
5. Again, I have no idea cuz I never used them.
6. Kernels are for games. 1.50 are for homebrew released when CFW first came out. You need special files for this. 5.xx is for the homebrew that is being released nowadays. Best stick to 5.xx if you dont need 1.50.
7. No, I dont think so.
8. HEN is a form of homebrew. Look here: HEN
9. I dont think so; you need a Magigate supported memory to use it a mms.
Hope that helped!
Ahh Nick, you beat me by 2 minutes!
Q1 UMD MODE: The umd mode if the driver the psp uses for running the UMD.
Q2 Fake Region: The Fake region just lets you use programs/applications (like GO!)
Q3 Hide PIC: The hide pic hides the Small Picture and the Background picture when you see it on your psp
- Flash 0: This partition holds the "OS" for the psp, all the Firmware files etc.
- Flash 1: Hold all user settings
- Flash 2: I think this holds the licensing details for the PS STORE.
Q5 Space: OPen the flash and go into properties
Q6 Boot.bin: No idea :)
Q7 Kernels: In the old days <3.XX FW homebrew was coded in use for the 1.5 kernel, now everything is coded for the 3.XX kernel. If you have a PSP SLIM you can't install this Addon because the earliest firmware it can run is 3.60
Q8 Hen: Hen stand for Homebew Enabler, basically allows a user to run homebrew from a specific explot (Eg. GripShift)
Q9 MMS: You can, but i suggest you buy a REAL Memory card to make a MMS, just buy a legic 512mb Pro Duo.
Hope this helps :)
I am the champion. :D
i was too lazy to answer so many questions :p
Lol it took me 10 minutes to answer in all of this question.
But i don't care it.
I just want to help the slimvader. :D :tup:
:(, man it stinks to not have internet in my home. Internet quota is limited, so I can only go to a nearby shop to help here. I will get back my activity by the end of the month. Until then, no one can beat nickxab. XD
much love to those who have answered my questions. back on the memory stick question. i wanted the adapter because it would be the cheapest way to get a lot of space for my apps and games and such. i really wish there was a way to mod this adapter and micros to be a mms. well, if not, i looked aroud on ebay and seen a 16 gig one for close to a hindred bucks. is there a cheaper stick that can be modded so i can buy a big un'? also, i really would like to know what debug 1 and 2 is in recovery. since i have a slim, what would be the most comaptible cfw to do everything? i have dl'ed some apps and i cant get them to work.
For my most compatible firmware would be 5.00m33-6, what apps can't you get working?
Cheap 16gb MS: DealExtreme: $36.65 MARK2 Memory Stick Pro Duo Memory Card (16GB)
Or just buy like 2 8gb. HAVE A LOOK AT THE FILE COMMENTS FIRST, some of those MS's are fake.
I have bought 3 things from DX, and they are very reliable.
