is the cipl flasher pretty much ah full version (as in i can power off my psp and it will still work upon power up) of the cfw that i just installed?
how would i go about reverting back to my earlier ofw? just delete the cfw files?
Yes, it stores PRO in the flash of your PSP basically like older CFW's did so it loads automatically when ever you turn on your PSP.
As for reverting back to OFW, that I'm not 100% on (I own two PSP 3000s and everyone I know does too, so I've never dealt with fully hackables)

1. play emulators of umd games, psx games, gb/gbc/gba, snes, sega genesis, and gamegear games <---- this is the reason i bought a psp again in the first place. sure it would be nice to have online features, but they take a backseat to the emulation aspect of this cfw. i really want to be able to play psx and gameboy advance games.
2. watch movies be them umd's or movies ive loaded onto my memory stick (i probably wont be doing this that much at all)
3. surf the internet
1. Emulators are simple, there's an entire sub forum dedicated to them (found here - viewforum.php?f=47 ) (I'm not sure what you mean by "play emulators of umd games", I think you mean UMD backups (i.e. ISO's you ripped from your own UMD's), if so then yes you copy them into a folder titled ISO at the root of your memory stick (the main part of your memory stick with the folders Game, Video, Music etc). PS1 games (PSN downloaded or games ripped from your PS1 discs converted to EBOOT [I usually use icetea1.3. See attachment] go in your Game folder like any game you download from the PSN.
damien907 wrote:the online aspect of the PRO intrigues me though, what exactly does this mean for online-ness?
It basically means that almost 50 games that are Ad-Hoc (local multiplayer, i.e. two people in the same location with two PSP's) can be played online with people around the world (for more info about games and how to set up AT-PRO visit the Prometheus forums)
damien907 wrote:all in all if i mostly want to play emulators and watch movies, for various different systems do you think i should probabably go with the me 1.8?
All of my experience has been with PRO (and previously TN-HEN) so I can't really give you an unbiased opinion on which is better (I've seen many debates and from what I gather both are basically equal until you come to PRO's online and ME's LEDA.prx[1.5 homebrew] support) so it's basically a coin flip, heads online play (PRO) and tails old homebrews (ME1.8)
damien907 wrote:and to be clear i would be dl the permanent version of either of these, not the (L)cfw version right?
That's also up to you, you can use the light versions so you can instantly go back to OFW if you need to for any reason (I know PRO has a "CFW blocking" feature that lets you use the PSN if the CFW is enabled and I'm sure Neur0n has the same feature in ME1.8)
one last thing, i just put my breath of fire umd into the psp to see if it would work, and it did (im still running 6.20 pro-C) but it wouldent let me save; it said i didnt have enough space. is this because my memorycard isnt formatted? i should have plenty of space because i have an 8gb memory stick in there, i installed the cfw without formatting it and it worked fine, but maybe thats my problem? will it erase my cfw if i format my card?
If you format your memory stick it will erase everything on the card, just like it would if you didn't have (L)CFW. The (L)CFW will remain on your PSP until you turn it off though. I wouldn't format the card right now, first backup anything that you don't want to lose.
Is the memory stick new? Have you saved anything to it before? I don't know why it's saying "not enough space" unless there isn't enough space on the card (which isn't likely since game saves are usually less than 100kb which is extremely tiny)
