Custom 1.50 Firmware – Media Edition

PSP Updates has posted information about a Beta Custom 1.5 Firmware

The concept of creating a custom firmware package that will allow the best of both worlds above and below the 2.0 mark has been around for a while. Thanks to GameShark that’s all starting to change. He has created the first “custom” firmware package that has all the abilities of a 1.50 PSP, but has the added media capabilities and codecs of 2.0+.

At the moment, you can only run this custom firmware using MPH’s Firmware Launcher. Do not try to use this package as an actual upgrade.

You can download the Custom 1.50 Firmware – Media Edition here.

I haven’t tested this yet as I am waiting for a non-beta release but I would be interested in the comments of anyone who has used this.

    This is a big step for homebrew if you could get it packed as an update with patched updateinfo, for example “Update 2.7″, as it would be able to update (downgrade?) a 2.6 psp with it. It’s too good to be true, but if it’s a too big thing, just imagine a thousand of custom updates with updateinfo 9999.9…

    Anyway, it’s a big step in a small world of updates…

    Kinda sucks tho…

    BTW, I’m working on a custom firmware with browser and WPA…
