How to play Playstation 1 games on your PSP via Popsloader?
Do you still remember playing Playstation 1 (PSX) when you were still a kid? How many games can you still remember? It was the playstation that made me addicted to Role Playing Games and the first one I played was Breath of Fire III. I was just in elementary school then… I only finished the game when I replayed in via an emulator when I was in college.
It really feels good looking back at those games where I still could not beat because I was young then. I want to play those games again but I don’t have a PlayStation anymore. So the solution would be to play them on an emulator. You can play them on your PC (via ePSXe) or using your PSP which this guide is all about.
By default, PSP’s with custom firmware are already able to play playstation (PSX) eboots. But in the case it doesn’t work, continue reading.
This can be done via popsloader, a PSP Plugin that serves as a psx emulator.

This is normal. Popsloader is a plugin and not an application that you can run via the memory stick. It will run automatically once you enable it.

Press select on your PSP and go to the recovery menu. Go to plugins and enable popsloader.prx.
