Guide to updating psp firmware
This guide will function as an update of the previous guide, and yes, I will be copypasting some chunks of text, but it'll not be that bad. This guide is updated to the PSP Firmware version 6.60. There are two ways to do this, and the choice is yours (haha Morrowind reference. Basically if you just drag that ' PSP' folder from within the download onto the ROOT of your memory stick, you should be good. The CFW that I am choosing for this guide seems to be the most popular and well-maintained for 6.60, and with such a small (and arguably, dying) scene, it's good to stick with the champs. You can grab 6.60 PRO-B10 from here (please let me know if this link dies, I will replace it! Just like before, download it, unzip it, and put the folders in the correct areas. We'll get to exactly what that means later, but check in XMBSystem Information and you should see a shiny new 6.60 PRO-B10 label in there.As far as my knowledge goes, 6.60 is the final official update to the PSP system, so this guide should hypothetically work til, well, the end of time. If there is another update (unlikely) I'll try and fit the guide to the new firmware. From there, unplug your PSP and go into Games Memory Stick on the XMB (Cross media browser). Click on that, follow update process, blah blah blah restart PSP and bam you're on 6.60. Step 3: Installing the CFWIf you're still following the guide, congratulations! Disconnect your PSP and then run the ' Update' application (it has a big PRO logo on it to not confuse it with the official update). The next step, assuming you'd like your CFW to stay on when you turn off your PSP, you're going to want to permanently patch the CFW to internal memory with that CIPL Flasher file. But seriously, you now can do all these fun things Welp, that about wraps it up.XX PRO CFW for all PSP models (reference's pro-b9 but is accurate for pro-b10)link has info on identifying motherboard, upgrading & downgrading, switching from m33/5.50 GEN or 5.50 Prometheus 4 to pro-b Thanks, I'll add an addendum, but I'm gonna keep the guide focused on 6.60. The reason being that certain games require the check for higher firmware- and not being permapatched is not a big enough deterrent for many users. Essentially all homebrew solutions on the PS Vita (TV) include a CFW of some kind.For information on how custom firmware works, please see this post by Yifan Lu.
We encourage you to check this page from time to time for system software updates and to always maintain your system to use the latest version of the system software.It is more convenient than other CFW solutions (such as HENkaku or h-encore) as it does not require you to trigger an exploit on your device after every reboot manually.Ensō is available on all devices with firmware version 3.65 or below, while higher firmware version devices can use h-encore to achieve a similar (if less convenient) result.I just found a PSP 1000 and I am very new to this, I've known about the hack but I am having trouble with some things. Since you said it is a pain in the ass to downgrade, I downloaded the Non-PSPgo files, I went into the USB mode through my PSP to open up the files and it says something about formatting the F Drive, after that it allowed me to go through the folder but there is absolutely nothing there.
