Updating custom firmware on psp
There’s basically 3 easy steps (you were expecting more?
Sorry to disappoint): Skip this step if you already have Firmware 6.60 installed on your PSP.
It is important to note that this is needed only if you reboot the console, not if you put it into sleep mode.
Most people use the sleep mode 90% of the time without ever realizing it.
However, every time you reboot your console, you will have to reactivate Pro CFW, which is done by running the Fast Recovery tool from your PSP’s Game menu, and takes literally 5 seconds.
In this section you will find additional tricks/steps if you want to improve or customize your experience with a Custom Firmware on your PSP 2000Some people think that it is a burden to reactivate the CFW every time they reboot their console.
If you are interested in the “advanced” Pandora Battery method, please go check that guide, or the “Power users” section below.
If, on the other hand, you want to follow the easy method (which for now I recommend), please keep reading.
An update to the PSP® system software was released on January 15th, 2015.The knowledge gained on hacking the 1.50 firmware, made it possible for Dark_Ale X to release, 3 months later, the famous 2.71 SE firmware. In fact, most of hacked PSPs, were still running the 1.50 version devhook, to emulate a 2.71 from the memory stick.With this firmware, everyone could update to 2.71, to get all the additional features, like the web browser, rss reader, and still can run homebrew (and pirated games).Those two need to be extracted to the PSP/GAME folder on your memory stick.Assuming you extracted the files correctly, you will see a few new applications in your PSP’s Game menu. You can erase the “Pro Update” folder from your PSP, but keep the “Fast Recovery” one.
