Yea, you’re going to have to install a custom firmware to do that. Is your firmware hacked?

Nevermind, I don’t want to put custom firmware on my PSP. Is there any other way?

No, because there is no Sony branded Nintendo emulator.

Every emulator that has been released for the PSP is some hacked together emulator released for free by a non-cooperate entity. If they were to sell their ‘game boy advance’ emulator they would open themselves up to a much more surefire lawsuit from Nintendo.

You can do it with an eLoader, dont remember how tho. ask the guys at PSP3D.com, they know a lot.

You can try that method but it’s actually harder then just hacking your firmware. Here’s a link to an afterdawn post about it:

How safe is hacking the firmware?

bodyhead's avatar

I’m not going to lie to you. If you hack it, you run the risk of bricking your psp (which makes it useless). If you do something wrong there is the potential to destroy it.

I’ve successfully hacked two different psps with no problems. How you do it actually depends on what version firmware you have on it now. You might start by reading the following fluther: http://www.fluther.com/disc/12878/how-do-i-install-custom-firmware-on-a-psp/

A bricked psp is not a problem anymore since sonys unbricker was leaked ;)
