    Hi,


    I have not been keeping up to date with the PSP firmware scene so I'd appreciate some guidance.

    I have a PSP-3000 purchased in 2009 or so. I've installed dark alex's 3.90 M33-3 firmware on it at the time. I used a pandora battery (which I've now misplaced...). It played the few games from Memory Stick that I had just fine.

    Now I want to play some games, including Motorstorm but I keep hitting 80020148, which I couldn't overcome despite following some configuration guides.

    So I guess i need to install the latest slickest custom firmware, so my questions are:

    1) What firmware should I install, keeping in mind my need to upgrade from 3.90 M33-3

    Please don't just throw names of firmwares - links to actual files and guides would be appreciated, this is because of the confusion with so many fake websites and what not.

    2) I would prefer that I don't need the custom battery, but do mention if I need it.

    3) What's the risk of bricking the machine..

    Thanks.

    PS, also, if you don't know your stuff, don't post. Bad advice is worse than no advice

    1. 6.60 is the latest. Choose either ME or PRO (they're both pretty stable and runs smoothly) in your case since you have 3k psp, you should use LME.

    2. no, you don't need a pb. just update using either system update or hellcats

    3. no risk of bricking the machine using my said method on #2, but don't run ME or cipl_flasher from PRO and it will brick your machine forever.

    Ok, thanks.

    Link to firmware download?

    It looks like all the 6.60 files are updated to some LCFW firmware that I need to install first?

    Sorry, the steps are not obvious to someone who's not been following the "news" day to day.

    So I went and downloaded the 6.60 LME...

    I put the directories installer and launcher as requested.. when I launch the installer it says I need 6.60 OFW...

    I went and downloaded EBOOT.PBP (what looked to me like 6.60 ofw), put into psp/game

    no dice...

    Information is scant as to what to do.

    go here http://faustnero.blogspot.com
    go to utility zone and get hellcat's. my upload file alreaady has the 500.pbp in it so no worries anymore. just put it in ms0:/PSP/GAME and run it. select target firmware to 5.00 then start. it will start flashing and wait til it finished then you're good to update to latest.

    sorry for the late reply.

    yes, try the system update on the psp menu. if it doesn't work, download the 6.60OFW on the same site i gave you on the firmwall section.
