Firmware 3.00

Its out on network update at the moment and I am waiting to install it. I did have a 2.80 with some homebrew (snes emulator) and I found that the homebrew is shoddy and not worth having. As a warning to all who are using the tiff exploit on firmware 2.80 I think I should mention that the PSPs flash memory can now be accessed on firmware 2.80, this means someone can make a downgrader but also means people can make programs which delete core system files and brick your PSP.

Watch this thread to find out what firmware 3.00 has on offer.

Re: Firmware 3.00

Ok I have played a little with firmware 3.00. The flash player is still exactly the same which was one thing I had hoped would be updated.

There is camera support in the pictures menu (only if you have the psp camera).

There is now an option to have visualizations when playing music.

There is an option in network to connect to the playstation 3.

If you want to play ps1 games then go out and buy a ps3 as there is no other way in which to obtain the games at the moment, this is not to say they will not make it possible to download the games without a ps3.

There is now an option to stop the psp from booting up a game that is in the umd drive when the PSP is turned on.

There is also an online manual now in the network which is not very usefull.

Hopefully there will be an option in the download store for getting ps1 games as I don't want a ps3 yet not to mention its not out in UK for ages.

Re: Firmware 3.00

First upgrade to firmware 3.00
Then go to settings > System setting > UMDtm Auto-start
and then turn it on or off...

I like this new option a lot and the visualizations are pretty too^^

I wonder when the camera comes out and how much it'll cost... I can imagine a new line of eyetoy games lol

Re: Firmware 3.00

There is a loophole in firmware 3.00 as firmware 3.01 is now available for download over network update. If you want to use homebrew do not update to 3.0.1 as the only thing added is security which in the past means someone can get unasigned code to run on the PSP and I gues people will be looking for this loophole maybe I was right about the ps1 emulator we will just have to wait and see.

Re: Firmware 3.00

Yeah, it wasn't me or Jake - i'm a bit worried by that post as someone managed to log in as admin (the default admin account created when you install this forum package). I can't remember what the password was for Admin (so probably the default one for punBB forums) so i've removed admin privaleges from the Admin account. The ip address from the poster is in america, to be precise, about here...
I'd be interested to know more about you and how you managed that post, mystery person smile

Re: Firmware 3.00

Yeah, really good thanks - if a little brief! smile

If you thought i sounded busy before, i'm afraid you're in for a dissapointment - my boat club captain has just emailed out the new training schedule and it's even more hardcore than before sad Top that with a stack of work to do at work, and my time seems to be rapidly getting smaller.
In other words please be patient for everything! I might look into granting more privaledges to people soon to try and spread out responsibilities...? (after a talk with Jake). Let me know if anyone else is a php guru.

Re: Firmware 3.00

I wish i had programming lessons at school. The only thing we are studying is Word and Exel. I usualy finish lesson's task in the first 2 minutes and brows the internet... with an 8kb internet and a browser that has no flash or java plug in on a 100Mhz processored PC with 16 RAM, stripped from administartion rights.

Re: Firmware 3.00

Yeah, the only IT lessons i ever had were like that too. If you want to learn, just browse the web though - i've taught myself everything i know with website design, taken me a fair few years to be able to produce a site like this one, but if i can do it then you can smile
If you want a nudge in the direction of some good sites, let me know
