    pro is really a LCFW so all you would need to do is update to 6.60 ofw then run the installer but every time you fully shut down the psp you will need to run the recovery app that comes with the installer or you can just put the psp into sleep mode and you won't lose it any other questions please feel free to ask

    They are not "fully hackable" meaning that when installing PRO cfw it doesn't modify any boot components. And the only way to get a lite-CFW is by running a file upon boot which modifies the RAM. Files are only added to the FW. And they will only have an effect if somehow loaded - in your case via "fast recovery" whilst a hackable PSP would load the additional files at boot.

    And it is theoretically impossible to brick a PSP by installing PRO or LME. What you do from that point on is what could brick it...

    If your on 6.60 then you use 6.60 LME.


    There's honestly not a difference for the average user between LME and PRO.

    I myself the first time I hacked it I was also very worried. But there is by installing CFW no chance of a brick. Just be careful what homebrew apps you'll run on it. If you just want to play backed up ISO games then there's a %0 chance of a brick, same with Emulators.

    And if you want to be super careful I wouldn't install the CXMB plugin if that's why you want to hack it, since it might brick.

    But normal plugins like CWCheat or ZeroRco_patcher (install custom XMB waves, custom game boot animations) are safe.

    If you want PRO cfw get PRO-C2. B9 is popular but C2 is the latest, just not popular on YouTube.

    It actually means hackable as in not permanent by injecting a CIPL (initial boot program).

    Now by defining CFW it means "permanent"
    And the image is saying the 3000 cannot have a CFW,

    Now LCFW meaning lite-CFW is temporary, since it doesn't modify system files (it adds) as oppose to CFW which modifies the IPL which the 3000 model is too locked down to boot from a CIPL ("Custom" initial boot program).

    So the only way hackers can get a LCFW on your model is by modifying the RAM, since every game and program when it "loads" is simply transferring the information required to the RAM, so since the 3000 is permanently unhackable the only way to get LCFW is by modifying the RAM, which means you'll have to load the file which does this task every time your turn ON the PSP since RAM gets reset when the PSP shuts down. But you can leave it on sleep mode.

    By doing this you have a LCFW without modifying system files. But instead "adding", the files don't have an effect since the IPL has to specify these files to be loaded, which "fast recovery" does.

    The WORST case scenario when installing PRO or LME cfw is it will crash. Solution: turn it back on. That's it. But that's very unlikely.
