About: I've been with Instructables for over 3 years now, and I'm loving it! Thanks to everyone who's supported me by giving feedback. It means a lot. If you have any questions please feel free to send me a message.

Did you ever wish to play Minecraft on that old PSP 1000? Perhaps you have considered tossing the PSP, but this hack will give some new life to that old game console. A bit of history with the PSP: Released on December 12, 2004, this console was ahead of its time with A screen of 480 × 272 pixels with 16,777,216 colors, 16:9 widescreen TFT LCD, 3.8 in wide. A CPU speed of 333 MHz MIPS R4000.

It also came with Wi-Fi (802.11b),[4] and IrDA. USB computer connection and stereo speakers. This console produced crystal clear 3D graphics that are high by even today's standards, making this console A perfect candidate for playing Minecraft. Let's get hacking!

Step 1: You Only Need:

You'll need A laptop with internet access and USB 2.0 support. A mini USB cable and A PSP 1000.

(NOTE: Your PSP 1000 MUST have custom firmware installed!)

As far as software, you need to download the file from the following link:

Minecraft PSP Edition v.1.3.1

When you go there, the download should start automatically. Once you have the file, you need Winrar. Get it at Rarlab.com

Step 2: Eeeks-trak-shun!

Continue on by extracting the downloaded .rar file onto your desktop using Winrar.

Once complete, connect the PSP to your PC via the USB cable.

Step 3: Final Step

Now, open up the PSP root and simply drag the extracted Minecraft Archive into the GAME folder.

Thanks for reading!

    For those who haven't installed a custom firmware yet, wololo has excellent resources on how to accomplish this (not too sure whether direct linking is frowned upon or not). Just google wololo psp cfw and you're in business.

    Will be trying out Minecraft PSP as my first forays into Minecraft :D

    I don't care if you do. Many (Dozens I've counted) post direct links and no one frowns on it. Go ahead, I forgot the website already. Thanks btw for reminding me...

    Maybe. I never tried this on a 2000 though. I make no promises!

    No problem. Just remember though, you need the custom firmware installed. I made this as a draft a year or so ago... I forgot the whole process. Thank Google we have online tutorials!
