    Looked quite a bit on Google, but:

    PSP 2000
    Trying to update to 6.60 but it gives the obvious 'No need to update because 9.90'
    At 5.50 Gen-D3 currently under System Software
    Have the update file for 6.60 on the PSP and ready, but ^
    (PSP Update ver 2.81)
    I also have 6.60 Pro-C fix files and 6.39 Pro-C2 files stored on my computer

    I've seen the fix where you manipulate flash0, but my problem is that I do not have a usb cord available. Only a direct memory card reader, so the tricky part for me is to get rid of the 9.90 mess without any interaction from the actual PSP, just from the files available to manipulate via Reader.


    Was hoping someone could walk through how to fix this under the circumstances, if possible.

    do you have hellcats recovery flasher? without a cord, your only option would be the most complex fix.

    Thanks for replying~


    Trying to go to any other firmware with Hellcats is giving me an error basically consisting of:

    ERROR OPENING 401.PBP! (0x80010002) (Same for the 500 I tried earlier)



    --------

    If there's a fix for this in conjunction with my previous problem, that would be great.

    If not, I was wondering if making a NAND dump and opening the .bin file to manipulate anything could provide any results.
    I'd like to avoid making a Pandora battery unless it's the only option left.

    Open your "VSH Menu" and change "USB Device" to "Flash 0".

    Now plug your PSP into your computer via the USB cable and you should see 4 folders, open the "vsh" folder and you will then see 2 folders.

    Open the "etc" folder and you will see a text document (it will say "version").

    Open the version text document and edit the first line from "release:9.90" to "release:5.50" (leave out the quotes)

    Save it and then reboot your PSP, your problem should be solved. Dont forget to change your "USB Device from "Flash 0" back to "Memory Stick"

    guapo, he doesn't have a USB cable so he cant edit the file.


    on that note, if you're going to help people, you should read their entire post so you dont give them info they cant use.

    Currently traveling. In Bangkok atm and over the next 2 weeks will be visiting Singapore, India and Cambodia. It's rather difficult to find or order a PSP Cable here.
    Even more so when I don't know the area extensively.
    Then again, that would be the reason I want to play my old PSP [the umd door is broken] ; because flight times, as well as the flight back to the U.S. is 13 straight hours, not mentioning wait time at airports and the like.



    After going through a 6.20 recovery with new files, I only get this error now:

    Error 80010002 loading/starting nand_updater.prx

    Same for 1fatfs_updater.prx and 1flash_fatfmt_updater.prx

    i dont know what you could do beyond deleting the hellcats folder and getting a fresh copy. sounds like your current one is screwed.

    The Mini USB cable (Type B) is not exclusive to the PSP, its a common cable that you should be able to find anywhere in the World

    kinda, its not used very much anymore, so many places dont stock them. i haven't seen any in store for years. but online its pretty cheap.

    Ouch.


    I had ver 1.60, redownloaded for 1.65 Hellcats.
    Same error when attempting to change anything.
    Also tells me that I have 6.20 or higher HEN on 5.50
    It notified me indirectly that my motherboard is a TA-085, and my region is set to Hong Kong. (Fake region setting disabled)
    Ran Key Cleaner and everything was fine.


    Soft modding a Pandora would be the last thing on the list, although I'm rather sketchy on if it ruins the battery as many say to have a spare.
    But it seems like there isn't much else at the moment between that and finding a usable usb cable.

    it wont ruin the battery, you just cant turn the PSP on with it. you'll need to change it back to a normal battery after its done. unless you can find a way to flash a newer CFW, you will need a cable to fix the txt file, if thats even it. i dont think the system info screen would show 6.20 if it was faked to 9.90.

    can you make a backup of your flash0?

    Did a NAND Dump, edit, and restore.
    Worked and I could update normally to 6.60

    Thank you very much for helping me and sticking with it~
