Updating a psp
the ability to extract the files from your umd and put two or three games on a memory stick to save power and eliminate the need to carry around multiple umds is very cool.i am not sure what the legal issues are with extracting the iso from a umd you own and using it on your own device, but i treat it as i do with dvds that i own and then rip to a portable device format that i play on my memory stick.
i primarily listen to mp3 files so the new audio formats don't effect me.and fairly recently some people figured out how to run full games off of the memory stick without a umd even loaded in the psp.i got the wipeout pure iso via a bittorrent download to test this method out, and found it actually runs faster off the memory stick and requires less power.Back up your save files (so that if they get corrupted, you still have backups) How to install 5.50 GEN-A CFW on your PSP: Extract the 5.50 GEN-A files to your computer.
