Because of the generally illegal nature of creating and using PSP ROMs, we will not discuss how to get them. However, if you know how to use Google, just search how to download PSP ROMs and you will find your way.

Installing Apps From Outside App Store
All recent versions of iOS have been able to install apps from outside the App Store using websites using enterprise app distribution certificates. Apple gives these certificates to big companies so that they can distribute private iOS apps internally within the company.
More recently, developers started using expired enterprise certificates to distribute apps that are not allowed to be published on the App Store. Apps like emulators for old game consoles, screen recorders, torrent downloaders, and more.
This is why apps like GBA4iOS and NDS4iOS required the “date trick” where you would pull the date back to a few weeks to install the app ‘before’ the enterprise certificate expired.
Fortunately / unfortunately, Apple has plugged this useful little hole in iOS 8.1. iOS devices owners will no longer be able to install apps from outside the App Store that use expired certificates. If you upgrade to iOS 8.1, you will be saying goodbye to these great apps.
