*Please note you do need custom Firmware and have a hacked PSP. For those of you who don’t know how to do this you need a Pandora Battery I bought mine at http://www.consoleshop.com/search.php?mode=search&page=1
and it was $25. just buy the one that says Pandora
(you only use this once and this is to hack your PSP) in conjunction with the Pandora battery you need a magic stick I bought mine off http://www.phiine.com/shop (I bought 512mb) because I have windows vista and not XP I can’t make one so I bought one
*please also note that you do need custom firmware. I use darkalex 4.01 M33-2, and if your wondering even if you hack your PSP you can still make it normal again just by an update from Sony’s official playstaion website, and have a normal unhacked psp again.
*Just FYI on a normal psp that is unhacked you can NOT play your ps1 games with an EBOOT.PBP file
Now Moving Forward
First thing you need to do is
Step 1:Download ISOBUSTER,SIMPLE POPSTATION GUI 2.21 BETA, and PSX2PSP V1.4.2
Step 2:FROM SIMPLE POPSTATION GUI 2.2 BETA from the data files just copy the BASE.PBP, and the KEYS.BIN file and save them to your desktop. THEN DELETE SIMPLE POPSTATION GUI 2.21 BETA, you have no need for it once you have these files.
Step 3:Move the KEYS.BIN file, and the BASE.PBP file into the FILE FOLDER under the PSX2PSP v1.4.2
Then you can follow those steps.
1.) Put your games assuming you own the game in to your cd drive on your pc. Make sure you have a folder with the name of game your saving iso folder to, also label disc1, disc2,etc.. (Downloading ROMs is illegal and I wont tell what sites)
2.) Open ISOBUSTERS 2.4 and right click on CD. Then click on the first top menu and click Extract Raw data (2352 bytes/block) (*.bin, *.iso)
3.) Then save the iso file to a folder on desktop I labeled the name of game and disc #.
4.) After you save your file and cue in same folder OPEN PSX2PSP v1.4 you can choose CLASSIC or THEME, TO MAKE A MULTIDISC CHOOSE CLASSIC, TO MAKE SINGLE DISC GAMES CHOOSE THEME.
5.) Click on convert menu, ALWAYS APPLY PATCHES. The very first Drop box just click little square to the left and choose your iso file. from the folder you saved with isobuster and open TRACK1.
The output file is where your EBOOT.PBP file will show up. (I normally put it in a new folder with the game titled as well) after all that it populates with the game id automatically.
6.) close the convert menu and click on customize EBOOT.PBP file. This is for pictures and .pmf files and icon files, as well as at3 file. For those of you who don’t know what these files are they are to put animation under your menu is your PSP when you play the file. you’ll hear music with the .pmf file and have your own custom pictures as well.Don’t ask me how to make then I only downloaded them and I’m not giving website you can figure that out google is your friend on that one.
If you don’t customize just skip step 5 and go back to the convert menu in PSXPSP v1.4 and click on convert at the bottom. then your done and can play your game.
As far as for multidisc EBOOT.PBP file SURPRISE I found out how to do it.
OK to do multidisc EBOOT.PBP you need to switch to the classic mode when you first load PSX2PSP v1.4 and then there is a drop down box on the left hand side of you.
Step 1: under ISO/PBP File select you track1 by clicking on the little square
Step 2: to add a 2nd disc,3rd disc,4th disc, etc… you click back in the same drop down box for where it reads ISO/PBP and select ISO/PBP file 1,2,3,4,etc for that disk number, then in little box choose that track1 file for each disk
step 3: make sure you select an output folder
Step 4: to customize you multidisc EBOOT.PBP on the right hand side where it reads icon again you don’t have to but it’s nice to add animated scenes or sound file a boot warning and a background.
Step 5: click on apply patches always apply patches. Then click on convert and you mulitdisc EBOOT.PBP is ready to go to your GAME file in your PSP.
Step 6: on your PSP to switch disc when prompt to just push the home button and it will read Switch Disc. And that is the entire walkthrough.
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION I WILL ANSWER QUESTIONS. ENJOY AND DON”T STEAL ISO FILES.
There are some games like FF7 that needs to run on a diffrent popsloader
so you might want to follow this guide as well
Installation Guide For POPSLOADERS
1. Connect the PSP via USB and enable the USB connection.
2. Download Popsloader. Extract the archive and copy the seplugins folder to the root of your memory stick. (x:\seplugins, if x is the drive letter of your PSP).
3. Download PSARDumper. This extracts required data from a firmware update. To install, simply extract the archive then copy the “newspsardumper” folder over to PSP/GAME on the memory stick.
4. Download the firmware update that corresponds to the version of POPS that you would like to install. Compatible firmware updates range from 3.00 to 3.72. Additionally, download links to all firmware update EBOOTs are available here.
5. Copy the downloaded firmware update, named as EBOOT.PBP, over to the root of your memory stick. (X:\EBOOT.PBP, if X is the drive letter of your PSP).
6. Navigate to the Game menu on your PSP and launch PSARDumper. Once launched, press square to begin extracting decrypted firmware files.
7. After a few minutes, the process should complete and your PSP will return to the XMB.
8. Once again, connect the PSP via USB and enable the USB connection.
9. Look for an F0 folder on the memory stick. Inside, copy the following files to the seplugins/popsloader folder, depending on the firmware update used:
3.00 – 3.03: kd/popsman.prx, kd/meaudio.prx, kd/pops.prx, vsh/module/pafmini.prx
3.10 – 3.30: kd/popsman.prx, kd/pops.prx, vsh/module/pafmini.prx
3.40 – 3.72: kd/popsman.prx, kd/pops.prx, vsh/module/pafmini.prx, vsh/module/libpspvmc.prx
Once you’ve copied the files, make sure to add a version prefix at the end of the filename. i.e. if you used firmware 3.40, then rename popsman.prx to popsman340.prx, pops.prx to pops340.prx, and so on.
After you’ve done this, the F0 folder on your memory stick can be safely deleted. Simply repeat steps 4 – 9 to install another pops version.
10. Now enable the plugin. To do this, boot your PSP into recovery mode by holding R when turning the power switch on, then enter plugins, and enable popsloader.prx. Exit recovery mode.
11. Congratulations! Popsloader is now installed and ready to use!
The first time you run a PS1 game that has no popsloader settings, the plugin will display a menu to select the version of pops you wish to use. To change the specific pops version for a game that already has popsloader settings, hold the R Trigger while selecting the game from the XMB Menu.
For those of you who want to add cheats well
To install the cheats
1.) Download version 02.2 Rev and extract folder
2.) open folder install
3.) copy the seplugins to root directory
4.)for those of you who have popsloader just copy the text from the cheats(pops) and add it to the popsloader (pops) so you can have both in pulgins to work
5.)reset psp in recovery mode which means hold the R button till it loads enable plugins like you did with popsloader and enable cheats and popsloader.

Now copy the .txt file to the cheats folder where ir reads text in the seplugins in your memory stick. Then exit usb mode. Now you can play your games with cheats on them. Then start your game and hold select and choose your cheats and Enjoy
