Earlier today a question was asked regarding installing custom firmware on a PSP. It was quickly closed (and commented) as off-topic by myself and four others. However, it was then pointed out that modding questions are not specifically listed as off-topic in the FAQ and a search on meta turned up a question and answers indicating that they were allowed.
The question has now gained a few reopen votes, but it is still generating comments, and I felt that it would be best if the question was discussed here in meta, rather than in the comments of the question.
Should this question be allowed? Are we all OK with the possibility of having questions and answers that detail how to mod specific gaming hardware?
