    THE ULTIMATE PSP GUIDE









    IMP: All the steps which I have mentioned in this guide are only for PSP 1k or PSP 2k (with mobo below TA-088v3) and not to be tried on any other PSP

    However Section 6 is dedicated for UNHACKABLES. So those who have them please visit this section.


    INDEX

    Section 1. Glossary
    Section 2. MMS and Pandora battery
    Section 3. Unbrick your PSP
    Section 4. Downgrade your PSP
    Section 5: Time Machine
    Section 6: Update your PSP
    Section 7: Hellcats Recovery Flasher

    Section 8: CFW for unhackables
    Section 9: FAQ + Cool Stuff







    Section 1: GLOSSARY OF VARIOUS TERMS USED IN MODDING








    Firmware : Firmware is the operating system of the PSP, similar to what your computer runs (eg. Windows, Mac, etc.). Updates are released every now and then that may improve functions of the PSP, add PSX compatibility or it may be an attempt by Sony to fix exploits.

    CFW : Custom Firmware. Allows the PSP to perform extra functions. It lets you run homebrew (unsigned code) and PSX/UMD backups from the memory stick.

    OFW
    : Official Firmware released by sony.

    Kernel (1.50/3.XX/4.XX/6.XX) : The kernel is sort of like the firmware and what it runs on. Think of it as Windows XP running on NT kernel. (Look it up at To view the link you have to Register if you're confused. Some hombrew is dependant on the kernel.

    DCv3/4/5/6/7/8 - : DC or Des Cem means Despertar del Cementerio and is the software created by Dark~AleX that allows PSPs to be downgraded or unbricked.

    Magic Memory Stick. Simply a memory stick formatted with DC software to allow service mode on PSP. Usually a PRO Duo 256mb-4gb.

    Service Mode : This menu accessed with MMS/Pandora allows you to install CFW/OFW or unbrick the PSP.

    Pandora battery/Jig-kick battery. Allows the PSP to boot into service mode when an MMS is inserted.

    Time Machine : Released by Dark~AleX, it allows your PSP to run custom firmwares from the memory stick and run previous versions (eg 1.50). Pandora is required for this. Runs on custom IPL so it would work even if the flash and NAND IPL is destroyed.

    Fatmsmod : A hack that allows the PSP to access the memory stick faster.

    ISO/CSO/DAX/etc..
    These are types of UMD images. ISO is the usual uncompressed image of a UMD game or movie. Many other types can be created from this such as CSO, the compressed version. These can be played from the memory stick with CFW.

    POPS
    The PSX emulation on the PSP. CFW lets you play your own PSX games with the "popsloader".

    EBOOT
    Applications and games designed for the PSP (even PSX games) will be an EBOOT. The file extension is ".PBP" - equivalent to ".EXE" for the PC.

    PRX Plugin
    An addon for the PSP with CFW to unlock more features. For example, the plugin Hold+ allows the PSP to be underclocked with the screen/backlight off while playing music.

    NAND
    The NAND is made up of three things. IPL , idStorage and the internal flash (flash0/1/2/3). When you make a NAND dump, you are backing up these things. If you brick badly, you can restore the NAND and the PSP will return to the state it was in when you backed up.

    IPL
    Initial Program Load. The start up process of the PSP. Decrypts and loads the firmware.
    Similar to how a PC starts up.

    idStorage
    The idStorage is what gives your PSP the MAC address, region code, etc.. What makes the PSP work.

    lflash
    The internal flash. Made up of flash0, flash1, flash2 and flash3.

    flash0 contains the operating firmware of the PSP

    flash1 contains the registry and all user settings

    flash2 contains DRM information that allow games purchased from the Playstation store to function

    flash3 contains the 1seg TV program (only used in Japan currently)




    Section 2. MMS AND PANDORA


    Magic Memory Stick:- It is Simply a memory stick formatted with DC software to allow service mode on PSP 1k or fully hackable 2k.It is Usually a PRO Duo 256mb-4gb.

    Creation of MMS

    What you require?

    1. A memory stick of good brand(Sony or Sandisk will do) of size 256mb - 4gb. I would prefer to reserve a memory stick of 512 mb only for mms
    2.A computer or PSP

    Although there are many ways to create a mms , i shall cover only 2 ways. One is by using Rains mms maker and other is by using PSP Tool

    Creation of MMS by using Rains mms maker

    1.Download the Rains UltraLite MMS maker from here Rains UltraLite MMS Maker for 5.00 M33-4, PSP Hacks - PSP Slim Hacks
    2.download the 5.00 pbp file from here 500.PBP - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

    Place the official firmware update file named EBOOT.PBP or 500.PBP in the same folder as the program OR you will be asked for its location during make MMS.

    3.Run the application and connect your psp or memory stick to the computer
    Choose the option to format memory stick
    4.Select the drive letter of your psp memory stick
    5.Finally select option to MAKE MMS

    if you are getting errors in this step, you probably have to get a new card

    Using PSP Tool for MMS creation

    1.download PSP Tool from here PSP Tool v1.00 - Homebrew Applications - PSP - QuickJump Downloads
    2.download the 5.00 pbp file from here 500.PBP - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download
    3.copy the 5.00 pbp file to the root of memory stick and the PSP Tool app goes into the GAME folder on your ms
    4.Run the app, under Memory stick options choose to create Magic Memory stick and then choose the option to install DC v8
    5.after completion of mms creation, when the option comes to turn battery into pandora, choose no
    6.then it will ask you to hold key to activate mms with pandora
    6.Hold down L trigger till it says completed
    7.Your mms is now ready

    in both the above cases your mms is made to flash install 5.00 m33.

    You can also make your mms to install other cfw like 5.50 GEN D or 6.60 ME using DCv8

    To flash install 5.50 GEN D3

    1.download the GEN D3 installer from here http://www.mediafire.com/?zzhcmknzznt5ngj
    2.place the UPDATE folder into the GAME folder and the 5.50 pbp into the root of the ms
    3.run the installer
    4.choose the option "Install XGEN PANDORA V5"
    5.your mms will now flash install 5.50 GEN D3 instead of 5.00 m33

    To flash install 6.39 ME from mms

    1.download the 6.39 ofw and 6.39 ME v2 installer from here PSP Custom Firmware 6.39 ME v2 Released *Updated* | PSP-Hacks: Hack your PlayStation Portable
    2.Download the OFW 6.39 update, extract and rename EBOOT.PBP to 639.PBP.Copy 639.PBP to PSP/GAME/UPDATE on your memory stick.Download and extract the CFW 6.39 ME v1 package.Copy UPDATE/EBOOT.PBP to PSP/GAME/UPDATE
    3.insert mms, hold L trigger , insert pandora and choose to "TEST m33"
    4.your psp will reboot and now emulate 5.00 m33
    5.Go to GAME in XMB and now run 6.39 ME updater

    this method works even on a bricked psp.

    To flash install 6.60 ME from mms

    1.download the 6.60 MEv1 bundle from here 6.60ME v1 Bundle - Downloads - Sony PSP MODS and Hacks Forums
    2.as in the above steps choose to emulate m33 and run the 6.60 ME updater

    How to autoboot your memory stick using a Pandora Battery

    here's what it means. You have a pandora battery and as you know only if you insert a mms or a memory stick with an ipl it enters service mode else it just show blank screen with green light
    now you can use your pandora battery just like a normal battery to autoboot from memory stick.Great isn't it? so no more swapping batteries

    1.first download PSP Tool and insert your ms into the psp
    2.go to "memory stick options" click "inject IPL to Memory Stick" Then Inject z3ros0ul Single IPL (Sleep Fix).
    3.shutdown your psp and remove ms.
    4.insert your pandora battery now.
    5.it will power on with a blank screen
    6.now insert the memory stick with the injected ipl and your psp should autoboot.
    it also works reverse ie. first insert the ms with ipl and then the pandora battery.

    First part of this video explains what is said above


    How to repair a corrupt idstorage

    Use this method when you get update errors while upgrading from old DA firmwares, or issues with WLAN or UMD drives

    1. insert your mms , hold L trigger, insert pb
    2. in the DCv8 menu, choose NAND Operations
    3. In that choose IDStorage tools
    4. select the region of your psp
    5. select the option to get real/random MAC and select yes to create new idstorage

    PANDORA BATTERY

    It Allows the PSP to boot into service mode when an MMS is inserted.

    There are 2 ways to create a Pandora Battery

    1.Hardmodding a Pandora Battery: it involves removing 5th pin or cutting a strip to make the battery to enter service mode

    Refer here on how to Hardmod a phat or slim battery.

    http://www.pspmod.com/forums/psp-har...-pictures.html

    IMP: a hardmod phat pandora wont work on slim model psp

    2.Softmodding a Pandora Battery :- Unlike hardmodding, which requires you to tamper with battery to make it jig-kick, softmodding a battery involves changing the battery EEPROM serial to 0xFFFFFFFF which causes the console to boot into service-mode

    There are many ways to softmod a battery into pandora battery , however this is supported only by limited psp.

    The psps which can softmod a pb are
    1. All psp phats(1k models)
    2.Psp slim with TA-085v1 motherboard( only this model can softmod among all 2k)

    Ways to Softmod a Pandora Battery

    1.XMBattery Plugin

    1. download the plugin from here XMBattery Plugin v0.1 - Homebrew Applications - PSP - QuickJump Downloads
    2.follow instructions in readme and enable the plugin in your recovery menu and reboot
    3.now under SYSTEM SETTINGS go to BATTERY MODE and now you can softmod

    IMP: XMBattery is incompatible with 6.39 ME or 6.60 ME. Whenever i tried anabling the plugin i used to get crashes

    2.Ultimate VSH Menu

    1.download it from here Ultimate VSH Menu v2.00, PSP Hacks - PSP Slim Hacks
    2. enable it in your recovery menu
    3.you will now have option to Convert battery: pandora, autoboot or normal

    btw the vsh.txt command must be ms0:/seplugins/vshmenu.prx (no 1 must be there after prx unlike the readme)

    this is pointless for those who have the latest cfw(i'm talking about ME and 5.50 GEN D) which has options for softmodding built in recovery menu.

    3. Using your cfw for Softmodding

    1.the option to softmod from cfw is built into the following cfw versions
    5.50 GEN D
    6.39 ME
    6.60 ME

    1.go to Recovery menu on your psp
    2.under advanced configuration>battery options , you will see options to make battery into normal, jig-kick or autoboot.

    To convert a softmod pandora battery back into normal one
    remove battery,connect the psp to AC power , go back to the place where you made the pandora(eg: in recovery menu) and insert the battery to be made normal and choose option to convert to NORMAL BATTERY

    To convert a SLIM PANDORA HARDMODDED BATTERY back to normal

    1.open up the battery
    2. go to the place where you have made the small cut
    3.using a pencil slowly rub the area of the cut with pencil lead
    4.your battery should be normal now.

    Once the pandora battery is done

    1.insert the mms
    2.hold whatever trigger required and insert the pandora battery to boot into DC menu

    SECTION 3 -UNBRICK YOUR PSP

    1. Unbricking a 1k or a hackable 2k

    1.you will require a memory stick in the range 256 mb - 4 gb and a pandora battery.

    2.head to the first part of section 2 to create an mms.

    3.once done, get a softmodded/hardmodded pandora battery.

    4.insert the mms, hold L trigger and then insert the pandora battery.

    5.now set the psp down on some surface so that the battery doesn't come off, if its loose.

    your psp will now boot into service mode with the DC menu

    6.choose the first option, 'install 5.00 m33-4'

    7.wait for it to be done.

    8.your psp is now unbricked

    NOTE :you can even install 5.00 ofw from the mms.

    this tutorial is applicable if you have modded your ms with DC v8.(don't worry, if you did what i posted in the first part of section 2- ignore this)

    UNBRICK UN-HACKABLE 2k (TA-088 v3 mobo)

    Files you Require

    •Extracted Files Original - all of the original image with the extracted files - essentially a set of service cards.

    •MSID 512MB Original - this dump MSPro ID origialnoy service card, taken by MSID Dumper

    •Original Dump MS - full service card image format IMG. You can look through WinHex.

    •Write IPL to MS - utility service record IPL-loader in 16th sector card. IPL itself is already there: multiloader_ipl.bin

    MAKING MAGIC SERVICE CARD

    1.Need MS PRO DUO card neoriginal 512 MB , 2 GB or 4 GB.

    2.Original SONY is not suitable, because Nanda has chips and they do not have specifications (datasheets) and programmers.

    3.Download " MSID Dumper ", insert the memory card into your PSP and run the program. See on the screen the "Serial Number" and MSProID your card and write, although the dump area MSID still remain at the root of the memory card and you can then see the hex-editor. That you can come in handy when you search the data in the dump of the chip.

    4.Thin body with a scalpel raspolovinivaem card in half, not ponostyu, but only the back and slightly more than half the edges.

    5.Then, using tweezers pull out from the housing fee, it is not glued, but just lying in the grooves.

    6.From the boards fed to a memory chip (nand), which is the largest 48 feet. A small square near the memory controller, it can not touch.

    7.Insert the chip into programming with sockets TSOP-48 for this chip:

    8.Keep in mind that with the mind maps are the same, but inside can be different Nanda, such as Hynix or Samsung. Therefore, under your chip is then searched the programmer. See the list of supported chips:Hynix, as far as I know, all have the same standard of conclusions on the datasheet TSOP-48, so if the letters or numbers differ from the list of supported models, it does not matter.

    9.Chip is inserted in socket programming is very simple, where she has designed clothes pegs, push down on the socket, the contacts move away, put mikruha and socket is released, the contacts are pressed against the legs of the chip, so that a newbie is like two fingers on the asphalt.

    10.Further, the programmer is connected to a computer with pre-installed software that came with the programmer. The program specifies a range of pages you want to dump and dump of the memory.

    11.Immediately dumps the entire 2 GB of memory for very long, and not necessary. I must say that we need a service area where the registered MS ID card that serves as a key dekriptovki anbrikera files, is at the end of the chip in the second bank. This area is located on the chips of 2GB Hynix HY27UH08AG5M or analogs, as It consists of two banks of memory to 1 GB. Therefore it is necessary to dump only the last few pages of the 2nd bank. The programmer himself will tell what page ends with Nanda. You need only specify the range (and up). In my case this page with MSID is within the range 07FFC4-07FFC5

    12.Next, open the dump file in a Hex editor, type in the search, what to look for, namely a piece of hex code MSID: 204D5350534E5930 , that means a literal expression _MSPSNY0, that is, it is half the 16-digit key, MSID, which all the cards MS PRO DUO memory is the same.

    13.If not found, then dump the next few pages from the end, until we find the desired one. Having learned the address, now we remove only the following page, where the MSID - this is exactly 512h4 16 x 4 = 2048 64 = 2112 bytes . Chip specification, you can read and write at least this size, that is, by page, but you can just more of a multipage.

    14.In changing the hex 16-digit ID of the card on the ID of the card which was removed set of the original service card. Required ID code can be found in the folder " MSID 512MB Original "in the file ID.txt .
    fact that each service is encrypted with a unique set of MSID that card on which he had written, and accordingly it is decrypted and the files at work. It's just like you do password-protected archive WinRAR - What's the password install, uncompress the same password.

    15.After replacing the ID, do not forget to save the file. Then sewn back this page dump at the same address from which to dump.

    16.Solder in the chip in place. There needs careful not to overheat the chip and the solder legs closed, because feet are small and very close to each other. Control the solder through a magnifying glass, at a minimum there will need an 8-fold, professionals in the workshops is done through a microscope. Although pro soldering with closed eyes, but then you need experience, a good flux, which itself draws the solder to the legs, braiding, to shoot the excess solder, etc.

    17.Format a memory card manufactured by the PSP.

    18.From the folder " Write IPL to MS "run" install_psp_ms_multi_loader_ipl.cmd "

    19.Only then do connect PSP to your computer.

    20.In the console can see how determined flash drive and click on the English " Y "

    21.We see a message " Write MS BOOT CODE "- then everything is fine. If you get the message " Canceled "- means the wrong letter pressed or not in the layout.
    If you get the message " Check Free reserved sector: to Small Sectors reserved "-

    22.Mount a Hex editor stick, like a physical drive and make sure that the 16th sector, there is known to us IPL.

    23.From the folder " Extracted Files Original "copy the contents of the stick and go to flash briknutye TA-088v3 =)

    Disclaimer:

    i have not performed this and so i don't know how it's gonna work or provide you assistance beyond this info.

    this info on creating a service card for ta 88v3 was provided to me by one of my friends and i just copy pasted it from the link.

    regarding the files required, i have them but it appears they are stolen property, so i'm not giving links. However if you can convince me that you are capable of doing this, then i'll think about it.

    a normal 2k hardmodded pandora should suffice for unbricking, the headache is creating the service card.

    it is a must you have a solid engineering background to perform this.(not meant for 12 year old kiddos)

    also make a note that the nand programmer software can only run on Windows XP and is not compatible with windows vista/7



    Recover your 3k from a semi-brick.

    What is a semi-brick?

    semi-brick is a state where you can't boot your 3k into the XMB, however you can access recovery menu on booting up with R trigger held.

    As you might have guessed, this is possible only if you have installed the 3k with 6.20 PRO-B permanent patch.

    So if you have a semi-bricked 3k , that had the perma patch installed, just follow these steps to unbrick it.

    1.remove battery, re-insert and power up holding R trigger.

    2.if the PRO recovery menu shows up, you're in luck else you have a full-brick.

    3.in the recovery menu, search for this option 'Hide cfw files' and set it to DISABLED

    4.Choose 1st option -Toggle USB (make sure USB device set to ms)

    5.make sure you have a 'vshorig.prx' file there (if you haven't tampered with the cfw files it should be there and you can skip step 3 and 5)

    6.download this file from the link below
    Download Semi-BrickRecovery.exe for free on uploading.com

    7.copy that file in this location ms0:/psp/game

    8.now run the Semi-BrickRecovery.exe from this folder.

    9.Done!

    note: the ofw that will be flashed here will be 6.35.

    if you want to flash any other ofw, just goto the UPDATE folder and replace the 635.pbp with the new ofw.

    make sure to change that eboot.pbp to ofw.pbp
    10.if you have any plugins in the seplugin folder delete all of them now.

    11.exit usb mode and choose to reset device.

    12.power on again holding R trigger.

    13.run the third option 'Run /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP'

    14.press X to install ofw.

    15.the 6.35 (or any other ofw you chose) updater should now come up.

    your 3k is now un-bricked.

    [ note: you can also do this method to unbrick psp 3k, if your psp has 6.20 TN D/E installed with the perma patch.]

    should you want to go back to 6.20 PRO-B again just goto my guide section 3, and use the 6.xx downgrader.

    SECTION 5: TIME MACHINE

    Time Machine is a way on which you can emulate 1.5 ofw on your hackable 1k/2k if you badly want to run those 1.5 homebrew
    .

    Q. Why 1.5 ofw ?

    It was the first ofw to be released by Sony (excluding ofw 1.00 for japanese 1k). It had no security checks, and any 1.5 homebrew can be run on it without cfw.

    Installing Time Machine

    For Hackable 1k

    Files you require

    1.Time Machine
    http://dl.qj.net/psp/hacks-exploits/time-machine-v01.html
    2.1.5 eboot file
    http://pspslimhacks.com/psp-firmware/official-firmware-updates/

    Hardware you Require

    1.Magic stick(ie. aldready modded with DC)
    2.Pandora battery

    Installation

    Toggle usb mode and do this
    (you need cfw on the psp to do this. I flash installed 5.00 m33-4 and did this from there but it should work on 6.60 ME)
    or having an mms, choose the option emulate 5.00 m33 from DC and perform this from there

    1.Once you've got those files, first copy the Time Machine folder into the mms in the following location ms0:/psp/game

    2.copy the 150.pbp file into the root of the mms

    3.exit usb mode.

    4. now goto GAME and run Time Machine

    5.choose to install 1.50, wait for it to be done

    6.toggle usb, navigate to the following location ms0:/TM/config.txt

    7.in the config.txt file, you should find a line like this
    L= "/TM/DC8/ipl.bin";

    8.below that line add this line:
    UP= "/TM/150/ipl.bin";

    [note: if you add this line instead of previous line
    NOTHING= "/TM/150/ipl.bin";
    then every time you insert mms and pandora with no key held it should goto 1.5 emulation]

    9.save the file and now exit usb mode.
    10. Done!

    power off psp

    now insert the mms and holding the UP key on the D-Pad, insert the pandora battery.
    you should now boot into the 1.5 ofw. set all options and proceed to run the homebrew.

    copy the 1.5 homebrew to GAME folder and not GAME 150 folder and it should run.

    For hackable 2k

    don't follow the method mentioned for 1k

    here to run 1.5 ofw emulation, you should use the option to install mixed 1.50/3.40 kernel from Time Machine

    Here's how you do it

    Files required
    1.1.50 eboot(rename to 150.pbp)
    http://pspslimhacks.com/psp-firmware/official-firmware-updates/
    2.3.40 eboot(rename to 340.pbp)
    http://www.4shared.com/file/o9iRhtvX/340.html
    3.3.60.psar
    http://www.4shared.com/file/lvN47Fy-/360.html
    4.Time Machine(same link as above)

    Hardware you Require

    1.Magic stick(ie. aldready modded with DC)
    2.Pandora battery

    steps

    toggle usb (again 2k must be on cfw to run Time Machine)

    1.copy the 150.pbp, 340.pbp and 360.psar to the root of mms

    2.copy the Time Machine folder into the mms in the following location ms0:/psp/game

    3.exit usb mode

    4.run Time Machine from GAME

    5.choose the option to install 1.50 with 3.40 tm moudles

    6.once finished, toggle usb again

    7.toggle usb, navigate to the following location ms0:/TM/config.txt

    8.in the config.txt file, you should find a line like this
    L= "/TM/DC8/ipl.bin";

    9.below that line add this line:
    UP= "/TM/150_340/ipl.bin";

    [note: if you add this line instead of previous line
    NOTHING= "/TM/150_340/ipl.bin";
    then every time you insert mms and pandora with no key held it should goto 1.5 emulation]

    10.save and exit usb

    Thanks to dankgame for this excellent video tutorial



    power off psp

    now insert the mms and holding the UP key on the D-Pad, insert the pandora battery.
    you should now boot into the 1.5 emulation. set all options and proceed to run the homebrew.

    Section 6. Update your PSP

    To update to 6.60 ME from any ofw

    First you need to update to 6.60 OFW and the install the CFW. To update you can either do it yourself or you can do network update on the psp.

    Heres how you do it. If your already on 6.60 OFW skip these steps. Also skip if you are going to do system update from the XMB. Just go ahead and update either way to
    6.60 OFW.

    1. Download this :6.60 OFW - 6.Downloads - Sony PSP MODS and Hacks Forums and extract it and have it handy.
    2. Now plug the psp into the usb on your computer and open the PSP folder and then the GAME folder and create a folder named UPDATE and put the 660 eboot in there.
    3. Now exit out of the USB and go to the psp and go to GAME and run that update. That should put you on 6.60 OFW.

    Now to install the CFW.

    When you go back to the game folder on the psp delete the UPDATE folder I told you to make.

    1. Download this:6.60ME-1.6 (OFW Version) - Downloads - Sony PSP MODS and Hacks Forums and extract that.
    2. Place the "me_installer" into your "GAME" folder on your memory stick .
    3. Then go run that on the psp like you did the update and you should be good to go.

    1. For those with old DA firmware (SE/OE systems)

    1. using Hellcats Recovery Flasher update to 5.00 m33(steps mentioned in section 5)
    2. download the 6.60 ME v1 bundle from here
    http://www.pspmod.com/forums/downloa...do=file&id=208
    extract the contents and copy the UPDATE folder from the archive to the GAME folder on your memory card.
    Then goto XMB and run the update.
    After that network update to the latest version of ME cfw.

    2. For those with 3.71 m33 to 5.00 m33 firmware

    first update to higher cfw like 5.00 m33 via hellcats (for those with cfw below 5.00 m33)
    then

    download the 6.60 ME v1 bundle from here
    http://www.pspmod.com/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=208
    extract the contents and copy the UPDATE folder from the archive to the GAME folder on your memory card.
    Then goto XMB and run the update.
    After that network update to the latest version of ME cfw.

    Also you can just run the 6.60 ofw update and install 6.60 ME as mentioned in the first part of section 4.


    3. For those with 5.50 GEN D firmware

    You need to perform GEN BYPASS to update firmware
    There are 2 ways to do this

    1st Method:

    for those who do not have the D installer anymore download it from here http://www.mediafire.com/?zzhcmknzznt5ngj

    once it's installed, exit usb mode and go to your games, run it and choose the 2nd option to install 5.50 ofw
    once it's complete, reboot and discard this updater.

    2nd Method:

    >access vsh menu by pressing SELECT
    >set "USB DEVICE = memory stick" to USB DEVICE = flash 0"
    >plug in your psp, search for the folder "etc", open it
    >you'll see a "version.txt", open it.
    >you'll see a number "X.XX" right beside the word "release" at the very top(if you're upgrading, the default numbers would be set to "9.90". change it to "5.50" or something lower than 6.60. save it. unplug.
    >set USB DEVICE back to "memory stick". plug in again.
    now reboot your psp, and the memory stick should be accessible again in USB mode

    [special thanks to Faustnero for the 2nd method]

    after the bypass

    in case of method 1: you need to update to 6.60 ofw and then install 6.60 ME-1.3 via the ofw version
    6.60 OFW - Downloads - Sony PSP MODS and Hacks Forums
    6.60ME-1.3 (OFW Version) - Downloads - Sony PSP MODS and Hacks Forums

    incase of method 2: just copy the 6.60 MEv1 bundle to the update folder and run it

    Upgrading a 09g PSP after downgrading to 6.20 ofw.(thanks to dankgame for the mention)

    Download the “TA-095 (9g) physical upgrader” from here http://pspslimhacks.com/9g-upgrader-released/

    •Download OFW 6.35/6.39/6.60/6.20 ( a single EBOOT.PBP file).
    •Place the OFW in PSP/GAME/UPDATE
    •Extract the Upgrader folder to PSP/GAME.
    •Run the program and follow onscreen instructions

    Section 8 :Installing cfw on Unhackables

    This section is solely dedicated for those who own unhackable psps.
    By unhackable, i mean those psp's which dont work on pandora and mms.

    Which PSP models are unhackable?

    All those who have PSP 3000 and PSP GO, your PSP is currently unhackable.
    If you want to install cfw on this psp, follow the steps below.

    For those with PSP 2000, matters become more complex.
    You have to first determine whether your PSP 2k has the unhackable motherboard-TA-088v3

    Though there are various ways, i recommend you to go to this thread if you cant determine whether your 2k is hackable or not.
    http://www.pspmod.com/forums/psp-dis...-hackable.html
    Once you have determined it, you are ready to proceed.

    Nature of cfw for unhackables.

    Most cfw for unhackables are temporary, meaning you need to run an exploit(launcher) everytime you shutdown your psp, or if your psp gets stuck.

    CFW for unhackables

    Though there are many cfw versions for unhackables, I shall cover only 3 versions

    1. 6.20 PRO-B9
    2. 6.39 LME-9.7
    3. 6.60 LME-1.6

    6.20 PRO-B9

    This is one of the best cfw for unhackables.

    Reason being it has a permanent patch which works for some unhackables, so no need to run the Fast Recovery exploit everytime.

    Download it from here
    620PRO-B9.rar - procfw - 6.20 PRO-B9 - X-Generation Aftermarket Firmware for Playstation Portable

    Installing 6.20 PRO-B9
    1.Make sure you are on 6.20 ofw else update to it
    PSP Firmware 6.20 Update | PSP-Hacks: Hack your PlayStation Portable
    2.Extract the 6.20 PRO-B9 folder.
    3.Copy the 620PRO_Permanent , Fast Recovery and PROUPDATE folder to the game folder in your PSP Memory card
    4.Now run the PROUPDATE installer from XMB and press X to install.
    5.Once its finished, you have to check if you can apply the Permanent patch.

    Currently its supported for all models upto psp with 05g module.

    Well most people might tell you to download PSP Module Checker to check it.But here is a shortcut.
    1. Make sure you're on 6.20 PRO-B9 , else run the recovery to be on it.
    2.Choose to hide MAC in recovery menu
    3.In system settings , goto system information.
    4.In MAC address section - it should appear HIDDEN and adjacent to that is your module version.

    Once you have done that , if your psp is compatible with the permanent patch, run it.
    Press O and then X to install the permanent patch.
    Now there is no need of running the Fast Recovery everytime.

    If your psp is not compatible with the permanent patch--DONT APPLY IT.
    Use the Recovery every time you shutdown the psp to be back on cfw.

    6.39 LME-9.7

    1.Download it from here:6.39LME-1.7 - Downloads - PSPMOD.com - PSP Forum, Hack PSP, PSV Hacks, PS Vita Hack, PSVita
    2.Make sure you are on 6.39 ofw else update to it
    6.39 OFW - Downloads - PSPMOD.com - PSP Forum, Hack PSP, PSV Hacks, PS Vita Hack, PSVita
    3..Extract the 6.39 LME folder
    4.Copy the INSTALLER and LAUNCHER to the game folder in your PSP Memory card. or just merge the PSP folder in the archive with that of your mem card.
    Run the Installer from XMB
    5.Finally run the Launcher

    there is no permanent patch for 6.39 LME cfw made by neur0n.
    If the cfw goes by accident, run the Launcher to be back on cfw.

    6.60 LME 1.6

    1.Download it from here:6.60LME-1.6 - Downloads - PSPMOD.com - PSP Forum, Hack PSP, PSV Hacks, PS Vita Hack, PSVita
    2.Make sure you are on 6.60 ofw else update to it
    http://www.pspmod.com/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=212
    3..Extract the 6.60 LME folder
    4.Copy the INSTALLER and LAUNCHER to the game folder in your PSP Memory card. or just merge the PSP folder in the archive with that of your mem card
    4.Run the Installer from XMB
    5.Finally run the Launcher

    NOTE: For PSP GO download the ofw update mentioned for GO from here and then follow instructions above to update
    PSP Official Firmware - Downloads - Sony PSP MODS and Hacks Forums

    UNBRICKING THE UNHACKABLES

    You need to be very careful with what you do with the unhackables, since a brick will result in a paper-weight.

    There is currently no way to unbrick a full bricked PSP 3k or PSP GO except to replace the mobo or send it to Sony if its under warranty.

    However if you are on 6.20 PRO-B permanent patch, and you get a semi-brick, your psp 3k/GO can be unbricked.

    SECTION 9-- FAQ + COOL STUFF

    1. DADA ERROR

    REASON: Dark Alex has implemented a block in his older cfw's (i guess upto 3.80 m33), which prevents you from updating to any official firmware by Sony. Also you can't update to the latest cfw since his update servers are down.

    FIX: update to the last m33 cfw via Hellcats. now just normally run the update to which cfw/ofw you want to install.

    2. CONFIGURATION ERROR

    ERROR MESSAGE : The system configuration of this PSP system does not appear to be correct. THe update cannot be completed. Contact technical support of assistance.(DRNFFFFFFCD)

    REASON : your psp has probably been downgraded using the old downgraders and then updated to some DA firmware. Hence when you update to a recent ofw/cfw you get this error

    FIX: Run an idstorage fix via DCv7/8 or use Key Cleaner to repair the corrupt keys of idstorage.

    3. Unsupported firmware version detected Pls power off psp?

    REASON: most people seem to get this error when they have irshell installed on the psp and when they update to newer cfw which is incompatible with irshell
    FIX: remove the memory stick and power on the psp. you should boot up normally. now delete the irshell on the memory stick and pop it back.

    4.After installing cfw , you get a blank screen

    Before you rush to conclude you have a brick, it might be some rogue plugin which might be causing it.

    Remove your memory stick and try booting the psp. If it boots up now, then find out which plugin is incompatible and disable it.Else it must be a brick.

    5. ISO files appear as corrupt in GAME section of XMB

    most likely you have copied it to the GAME folder on the psp memory stick, while in reality you have to create an ISO folder in the root of your memory stick, and copy the iso's there.

    5.PSX games don't work properly

    Sometimes the newer firmwares do not support some PS1 games that can be used on older ones so if you have some problems with some PS1 games you need to get a POPS LOADER for your cfw version.
    Hold R trigger while pressing X to choose which firmware to emulate

    6.Some of your 1.5 apps don't work on the later cfw

    Go to Recovery Menu and try changing the GAME folder to 1.5 Kernel.if it doesn't work and you are very desperate to run 1.5 apps, then you need to install TIME MACHINE on your psp to emulate 1.5 ofw and then run it.

    7. NETWORK UPDATE ERROR

    suppose you are trying to update to latest version of ME cfw, via network update and you get an error "NO NEED TO UPDATE"

    goto Recovery Menu and check if the option to enable custom update is ENABLED or not. If not Enable it and now check
    8. UPDATE 1.5 OFW TO THE LATEST CFW/OFW

    if you get errors or black screen while updating 1.5 ofw , then just use hellcats and update to 5.00 m33, then run the cfw or ofw update to get the problem solved

    TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN A SEMI-BRICK AND A FULL BRICK

    Power on your psp, and if you get a blank screen with the green power light on it's a brick.
    Now, try holding the R trigger and boot up the psp.

    If the Recovery Menu appears you have a semi-brick from which you can recover via Hellcats

    Else you have a full brick and you need a pb+mms to repair your psp.

    TRIPLE BOOT INTO 6.60 ofw , 6.60 PRO-B9, and 6.60 ME (only for hackables)
    1. first update to 6.60 ofw.
    2. then install 6.60 PRO-B9 but don't apply the CIPL flasher
    3. now run the 6.60 ME-1.5 update.

    by default you will boot up into 6.60 ME 1.5
    Holding home key you can boot into 6.60 ofw.
    run the Fast Recovery to be on 6.60 PRO-B9.


    How to update PSP on AC source

    usually when you try to update PSP on AC w/o battery you get error
    Here's a fix
    All you need to do is hover over the update, and press and hold the Left Trigger and Triangle. While still holding the Left Trigger and Triangle, start the update. When it says press X to install, you can stop holding the trigger and triangle and proceed with the update.

    Savegames appear corrupted after updating from GEN cfw to later one.

    There are two fixes for this
    1.Download the patch for GEN cfw from here MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    copy it into the Game folder and run it

    .PLEASE NOTE: this must be used only on 5.50 GEN D 3 after you update from D 2 and get save errors.for other versions please use magic save

    2.MagicSave which is a plugin (Thanks to El guapo for the mention and video)

    follow instructions in the video



    TRIPLE BOOT INTO 6.60 ofw , 6.60 PRO-B9, and 6.60 LME(for un-hackables)

    1. first update to 6.60 ofw.
    2. then install 6.60 PRO-B9 but don't apply the CIPL flasher
    3. now run the 6.60 LME-1.6 update.

    shut-down your psp and you will boot into 6.60 ofw
    run the Fast Recovery of PRO cfw to be on 6.60 PRO-B9
    run the launcher of LME to be on 6.60 LME

    Q. i insert a pandora battery into my slim which is a 2k with TA-88v3 mobo, and only a green light appears , even though i insert mms and hold L trigger?

    this is because the 2k with 88v3 mobo, does not support the per-ipl exploit, and cannot boot into the DC menu.the pandora powers up the psp, as it can access the service mode on TA-88v3

    Q. is it possible to install ChickHen on a psp 3k ?

    yes it is possible, provided you have a 3k with module 03g. Above 03g, it is not possible to install ChickHen since the psp 3k with higher module does not support downgrading to 5.03 ofw.

    Q.How do i go about taking UMD Backups?

    1.make sure you have cfw installed, else not possible.
    2.press select to enter vsh menu, and choose usb device as UMD
    3.toggle USB
    4.copy the iso file from the UMD window to anywhere you want.

    q.When i try to connect to an access point - it says 'unsupported' in the encryption field and i'm not able to access it. Why?

    most probably, you must have set the encryption of your access point to WPA 2, which is not supported by the psp.Change it to something like WEP or WPA to make it work.

    q. How do i run 1.5 kernel apps wih LEDA on 6.39 ME and 6.60 ME

    on 6.39 ME , 1.5 kernel emulation is built in. just goto recovery meny and change the GAME folder option to 1.5 kernel, and copy 1.5 apps there to the GAME folder.
    for 6.60 ME , use the LEDA plugin that comes with the installation folder, and follow the instructions to install.

    note: all 1.5 homebrew need not work by this method.

    Q.how to reverse mod a softmod pandora back to normal one?

    remove the softmod battery, power on the psp via ac source and goto the tool which you used to softmod, now re-insert battery and there should be an option to reverse the battery back to normal.

    Q how do i format flash1 of my psp?

    hold down start+select+square+triangle while booting up your psp to format flash1.

    touche there diab, but this has been a problem of the mods before. people never put effort, not even a tad bit of it, so they jsut post and rant. say we have a guide for the search feature, mostly, they just don't give a shit and post right away. even those who are new here doesn't even give time to visit the forum rules thread. well, i'm just saying, been here for a long time now, and i've seen how goku and the others worked for that.

    This is a somewhat difficult situation here.

    I don't want to piss off dankgame by going against what he did by unbanning you. At the same time, I don't want to discourage someone from contributing to the site so I do want you to write this guide. I realize that's all you were trying to do.

    I'm not going to accuse you of directly copying Goku's guide because quite frankly, you didn't. But at the same time, it isn't too much of a stretch of the imagination to say that you probably had his guide open in another tab while you were writing yours. It feels like you did because of the general structure and "feel" of it and the fact that you're talking about OE/SE firmwares and NOBODY knows what that is unless they've been in the scene awhile. Only you know if this is true or not and from your perspective I can understand where you'd be wondering why it matters. The issue I have with this is that Goku2778 doesn't want his guide on this site because of the recent rule change that is "allowing" piracy (I disagree with that conclusion but let's plow ahead here). I have nothing but respect for Goku2778 and if he doesn't want that guide here, it will not be here either in whole or in part.

    Nobody is getting reprimanded here. Keep making the guide as far as I'm concerned. We do need a new guide and if you don't make it, I will. Make sure it's your own though. If it's good it'll get a sticky.
    n00bs, please read

    I'd encourage you to read the rules for the forum. They're pretty straightforward and there aren't many of them. http://www.pspmod.com/forums/introdu...uncements.html

    I agree with what Slowman says 100%. @pirate, would you be open to suggestions and add-ons to your guide?
