I really love to hate my PSP. My dad bought it for me as a graduation gift, but he got the latest PSP (PSP 2003, with the cursed TA-088v3 MoBo), and I happened to be stupid to update it via wireless to version 5.50, therefore decreasing any further chance of being installed with any custom firmware.

Dammit, I can't play ISO games that I really love, plus I hate to buy UMDs--not worth the price!

Anyone of you who experienced having the same scenario as I did? And is there anything workaround for this? Because frankly, I don't wanna limit my PSP to just a portable audio/video player. Sigh...

Ehh? A piece of hardware that wirelessly auto-updates? That sounds like something I should stay away from.

Not exactly... I updated it manually... out of sheer ignorance... not knowing that the update would lock up my PSP... T_T

I had this problem. I found out about custom firmware the day after I updated to V4.05. While there may be two ways for me to still get custom update to play emulators on the go, it's just too risky. The Pandora's battery seems very complicated and downgrading could brick my PSP. Oh well.

I use my PSP to listen to music since I don't have an mp3 player or fancy stuff like iPod. I also use it to watch videos I download from youtube to watch later "on the go" or in bed since I would get caught not being in bed when I should be. Gaming videos on the psp ftw. However, I couldn't find my psp charger recently. :(

I got mine second hand and it turned out to be pre hacked :) I love it so much I'm not sure what I'll do when it dies and getting a replacement becomes difficult. The emulators, easily loading loads of films and tv shows, better battery life as a music player just turn it into an awesome system.

I love my PSP and will never hack it. I love having the actual UMDs of the games I like, so that's no problem.

I wish they would start making more games for the PSP, the new releases are limited in the USA. Over in Japan they always have a ton.
