So of course we all know that 1.5 is the best firmware for homebrew.
We all know that when you upgrade to 2.1+ your ****ed.
So, I got this idea after watching the video from lik-sang about installing the psp tv. They take the unit apart, and insert a custom circuit strip that connects all the points in the psp related to controll and video. The strip integrates perfectly in the psp and the end result is a nice little port on the top of the PSP for the PSP tv attachment.
Why can't something be done like this for the firmware chip on the psp? Like a computer, im sure that the psp has a chip JUST for storing the firmware. If it were possible, in wich I believe it is, why can't someone solder points onto this chip and have an interface on the outside of the psp? The interface could be a serial port, or it could be an eprom socket for any other firmware.
Imagine a year from now when all the best games require 3.0 firmware. Again, we're 'imagining' here so keep that in mind before you shout at me. Imagine the homebrew scene alive and kicking extremley well still becuase people are still running 1.5 yet they are playing version 3 firmware games. Imagine that the user could simply 'switch' a 3.0 firmware chip to a 1.5 firmware chip using the above described advice.
Its pretty crude, but it would work perfectly.
Downsides would be installation, hard as hell, but possible. Another downside is getting an eprom writer or whatever the hell its called to load up a 1.5 firmware into your 'blank' chip to fit into your socket that you installed.
Hopes and dreams I spose, but tell me what you think. If your gonna be a prick or a 9 year old when it comes to comments, kick yourself out of this thread.
