How to Run ISO From a Memory Stick on PSP

Running custom firmware on your PSP has many added benefits, but probably none more useful than the ability to play all of your games directly from your memory stick. This allows you to carry many games, depending on the size of your memory stick. You have to make the ISO files yourself from the games you have legally purchased.
