Install PRO CFW on your PSP

install pro cfw on your psp

In this guide i’ll teach you to install pro cfw on your PSP. This guide works for all PSP even if you never hacked the console or you have a very outdated one so just follow this steps and you’ll end up a very solid CFW that can play every new game released, PSN games, homebrew, emulators, themes and all you need for you PSP.

Disclaimer: nicoblog-games.com does not take any responsibility for the damage this may cause to your PSP. Follow the instructions precisely  pay attention to what you are doing and read beforehand, if you shutdown your PSP while updating it will break. If you are unsure don’t do this.

Start by checking your actual firmware:

  • On your PSP go to SettingsSystem settingsSystem information.
  • Look at what it says on System Software:

psp_update_cfw

Once you know what firmware you have proceed accordingly:

  • If you have NO CFW proceed to “Update PSP to 6.60“.
  • If you have a version of PRO older than 6.60 run PROUPDATE and press triangle to uninstall it. (PROUPDATE is included with 6.60 PRO-C Fix3 download)
  • If you have Prometheus 5.50 CFW installed you might need to edit the “version.txt” before you cna move on with the guide:
    • Press select on your psp then change usb device to flash 0.
    • Connect your psp on your computer go to vsh folder.
    • Go to etc folder and open version txt.
    • Change release from 9.90 to 5.50 and save.

Things you should know:

  • This can be permanent only for PSP 1000 and some earlier 2000 models but for the rest you’ll need to reactivate it if you shutdown your PSP.
  • Your old saved progress in games might not work after updating.

Update PSP to 6.60: 

  1. Connect the PSP system to the PC using the USB cable.
  2. Go to the memory stick of the PSP, navigate to PSP -> GAME folder
  3. Inside the GAME folder create a new folder and name it UPDATE.
  • This is the full path:

ps_clip_image

  1. Download the official firmware version 6.60, choose the one corresponding to your  PSP model:
  • For a PSP 1000/2000/3000 series 
  • For a PSP-N1000 (PSPgo) series 
  1. After downloading the EBOOT.PBP for your model, copy it to the UPDATE folder created on step 2.
  2. Unplug the PSP, now use the PSP to navigate to the Game menu -> Memory Stick -> PSP update and press X to launch it.

psp-6.60-ofw-install
DONE! (But not over!) proceed to install pro cfw…

install pro cfw on your PSP:

Note: There’s a newer version of PRO (C2) which have problems with some PSN games so i recommend you to use PRO-C Fix3 which works for all games

  1. Download 6.60 PRO-C Fix3 - (Mirrors)
  2. Wait 5 seconds and click skip ad to start downloading, extract the package.
  3. You will find 3 folders in there:
    • PROUPDATE: Needed to uninstall/install pro cfw.
    • FastRecovery: Needed to reactivate the CFW after shutting down the console.
    • CIPL_Flasher: Neeeded to permanently install pro cfw (Only works with 1000 and some 2000 models)
  4. Connect the PSP system to the PC using the USB cable copy those folders into your psp GAME directory. Example:
    • E:\PSP\GAME\FastRecovery
    • E:\PSP\GAME\PROUPDATE
    • E:\PSP\GAME\CIPL_Flasher
  5. Unplug the PSP USB cable, now use the PSP to navigate to the Game menu use PRO UPDATE install pro cfw.

snap001c

  1. After running PROUPDATE a menu will appear, press X to install, the console will reboot itself and that’s it.

pic_0000

Make sure everything is working fine:

  • Settings – System settings – System information.
  • It should say 6.60 PRO-C now:

psp_6.60_PROC

Every time you turn off your console (by holding the switch like 10 seconds) you will have to run the FastRecovery utility to activate the CFW again.
But If you have a PSP 1000/2000 it’s possible to make the CFW permanent using CIPL_Flasher, if your model is not supported it will tell you so.

    hey, umm, i only have to install right, no need to delete my “PRO PSPS FIRMWARE Fast Recovery” right? i have tried to enter recovery menu (turn off, then press r and turn on) but it’s not working, so after i’m searching on internet, it says i have no cfw. and i found these, so i ask this question. thanks !

  • Rothcall

    oh and my system information is
    System Software 6.39 PRO-B10
    Nickname P910
    MAC Address [ Model: 09g ]
    so no cfw right? (sorry, i’m very confused and very bad in english @_@)

  • Rothcall

    eh wait wait…

    after i’m searching 6.39 PRO-B10, it says it is CFW!! @_@

    haaaaaaaaaaaaaa @______@

    but why i can’t play persona 3 then? @_____@

  • Rothcall

    nevermind, i’ll just download it. heheh

  • Rothcall

    wait, after i copy it to my game directory, it says
    sorry. this program doesn’t support your FW (0X06030910)

    time to google :P

  • Rothcall

    well, never mind , now i know what to do :)
    and i can play again
    thank you very much, this blog is great

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    hey, im a bit late did you solve this?
    pro-b10 is indeed CFW.

  • Rosemarie Wong

    Thanks for this.

    I hate other websites that requires me to fill out the survey(which they need $$) just to download the update. _(:3_| Z)_

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    That people don’t care about helping you, they are just in for the money.

  • Kelvyn Bienvenido

    i cant update i try so many times but the update dont start

  • Kelvyn Bienvenido

    those pages are SHITTY ONES

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Didn’t think you own a psp ha!
    What is the software version on:
    Settings -> System settings ->System information.

  • Kelvyn Bienvenido

    the 5. i dont remenber well its pass from my cousin becuse the psp STOP of reading isos when i try to update i have WHITE SCREEN and no more than that

  • Kelvyn Bienvenido

    and thast why i using PSP emulator :P

  • Kelvyn Bienvenido

    ok ok i get its 5.50 gem D-03 or something like that its the version i have in this psp

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I think you need to put the Gen D installer on your memory stick, just run it again and choose the load OFW option.

    Once you are back on Official firmware use the guide to upgrade to 6.60 and then 6.60 pro CFW.

  • Kelvyn Bienvenido

    ok i will try it thanks

  • Koga

    I cant update it..It sais “doesnt support your FW”

  • Koga

    Im also using 5.50 gen-D3

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    you can’t update if you are running a CFW, must uninstall that first.

  • Koga

    How do i do that tho?

  • Koga

    I did and its on 6.60 pro C now C:

  • zєxɪσи

    Nico, can you upload a picture of the psp system which accept this software .. like from 3.5 , cus I am planning to buy and I dont know what I need to run iso downloaded games

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    =) AWEESOMEEEE!!!

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I think it’s safe to say you can do this to ANY PSP.
    6.60 is the latest final official firmware standard for all PSP.
    And pro CFW works with 6.60 so..it will work regardless of the model.

  • Steebunn

    So I tried upgrading my CFW yesterday by following the directions (I have 5.50 Prome-4). My PSP says PSP 1001 so using the first download link for 1000/2000/3000 is fine, right?
    I followed the directions and everything, but when I tried to upgrade it tells me I can’t upgrade my 5.50 cause it’s version 9.90 o_o
    I can’t seem to play any JPN games (English patched or not).

  • breaker

    change 9.90 to 5.50:)

  • Steebunn

    How do I do that? :( lol
    My system info says 5.50 Prome-4 already :l
    But attempting to upgrade says 9.90

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Prometheus won’t let you update!
    you need to use prometheus installer to REMOVE it, then you can follow the guide.

  • breaker

    press select on your psp, then change usb device to flash 0. connect your psp on your computer go to vsh folder. then etc folder and open version txt. change release to 5.50 and save.

    release:9.90

    I did this and it worked fine. Thank you! Now I have Firmware 6.60 :)
    I just need to install PRO-C2 now right? No needed equipments or anything else but that? :D

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Great yeah install pro-c!

  • Renzo Kai

    Sir, should I go remove 5.5 prome-4 before putting the EBOOT.PBP in my psp?
    In removing prome-4, Should I just copy the EBOOT.PBP of it? or should I go copy the whole folder and run the installer?

  • Renzo Kai

    Toukiden also works on 6.60 pro-C right?
    and so is SAO and .hack//link?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Yeah the games work on 6.60 pro-C.
    You have to run prome installer, and choose to remove it before upgrading to 6.60.

  • Steebunn

    You could check my post below yours on directions to update 5.50 Pro-4 to 6.60 c:

  • Renzo Kai

    I see thanks… but,
    Nothing happens when i press select in my psp… i enter the recovery menu by turning it off and turning it on while pressing the R button.
    Changed it to Flash0.
    But still..I can’t see the vsh folder

  • Renzo Kai

    Found it sir. Thanks for helping :D

  • Renzo Kai

    Followed the instructions and went to 6.60 pro-C2 smoothly. :D
    Thanks a lot! :D

  • Renzo Kai

    Thanks sir. :D

  • zєxɪσи

    I have a question , so if I did all of these things and turned my psp off and I mean OFF not sleep and its 6.60cfw will everything be gone or what ?

  • Zander Valkiera

    For 3000-PSP models above, that would surely HAPPEN… I have 3000 myself, its natural for me ’cause 3000-PSP models hibernate and it doesn’t literally mean that EVERYTHING WILL BE GONE, it’ll just hide the games and return back to its OFW if you FULLY turned it off… just use FAST RECOVERY if that happens on your PSP, but usually, that doesn’t happen to 1000 and 2000-PSP models…. :D correct me if I’m wrong…
    [Edit]
    OFW could only detect the games on the PSP/GAME folder and not ISO folder, OFW could not also play homebrew PSP games.. :D

  • zєxɪσи

    So zander you mean if that happens the iso only will not be affected

  • Mr.Oppai

    it will not be affected it just wont show then you use you Pro Update and then the ISOs will show and are playable

  • Steebunn

    You’re welcome :) I’m glad things worked out! I was pretty happy myself xd

  • zєxɪσи

    thx for clearing that up , I am going to buy one so just preparing

  • Zander Valkiera

    Well, Pro Update re-installs the CFW if you use it after you fully TURNED YOUR PSP OFF.. you should have FAST RECOVERY or so… :3

  • Cross

    when i tried to play FF8 an error flashes on the screen (FFFFFFF)

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    If you completely shut it down (holding power button like 7 seconds, or removing the battery) it will go back to original firmware again, to go to pro-cfw just run “fast recovery”.
    As the guys said under OFW you will not see the games but they will be there, no change is made on the memory card, OFW just hides the info from you.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    FF8 is one of my favorite games, the version i uploaded i played a lot on my own psp with the same custom firmware.
    Try disabling some plugins you don’t need. And shut down the PSP (hold power button 10 secs) until the light turns off. then turn it ON and launch “fast recovery”, then launch the game again.
    It should work, if the eboot extracted fine it should work.

  • zєxɪσи

    Thank you I was kinda worried , but now ready when I buy it .. before that I am going to buy galaxy s4

    Then update to 6.60
    THEN update to Pro-c2 6.60

    or post a screen shot of where your folders are in your psp memorystick

  • Yaggyu

    kinda confused on the how to remove the Promethius and whats release:9.90 for?

  • breaker

    if you don’t change the text release:9.90 to release:5.50 inside the version txt, when upgrading to 6.60 you’re psp will tell you that you don’t need to upgrade you’re firmware.

  • Yaggyu

    ok so what ur saying is delete 9.90 and replace it with 5.50

  • breaker

    yes.

  • Itachi Uchiha

    Help.. i can update to 6.60.. Im currently on 5.03.. when i put the eboot in my psp>game>update. Its says its corrupted..

  • Itachi Uchiha

    oh, nvm.. can update already.

  • Itachi Uchiha

    err, guys after i update to 6.60.. i can load my save data.. Help? anyone….

  • SEi JOnas

    thanks for this finally it works :D but its always changing to 6.60 when i turn off the psp, what would i do ?? my frmware is 6.60 pro c2

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    As is explained on the post, it will go back to original firmware if you completely shutdown the psp (by holding the power button 7 seconds or removing the battery).
    To get back to Pro-C2 you need to go to game and run “fast recovery” to reactivate the CFW.
    To avoid this, don’t shut down the psp. By presing the on/off button 1 time (no holding) the PSP will go to sleep mode, it will not drain any battery, you can turn it back on again pressing the same button and Pro-C2 will remain active.

  • SEi JOnas

    ahh thanks ! but is there a method that will not change it back to official frmware if the battery were removed ? just asking, thanks by the way :)

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    No there isn’t.
    Small price for what it does. You’ll get used to sleep mode. And running fast recovery takes 5 seconds.

  • Yuji Sakai

    When I try to save the edited version.txt it just says “you can’t save here. Please choose another location.” :(
    What do I do?

  • Yuji Sakai

    Will it also work if mine was version 6.39 pro b?

  • Yuji Sakai

    I’ve successfuly updated my psp, yet I can’t still play cso file games.
    Please help. Thanks. :)

  • Mochie

    Heyyy umm… I really have no idea about these stuff so please bear with my idiocy. XD
    For example I upgraded to 6.60 PRO-C2, will my patched old games (5.00 m33-6) work even I upgraded?

    Also, is there a chance for my PSP 2000 to get bricked while upgrading to 6.60 PRO-C2?
    I’m kinda afraid of that happening..
    Thanks in advance!

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Patched games will also work.

    There shouldn’t be any problem if you follow the instructions and don’t shut down while installing/upgrading.
    But do it at your own risk.

  • Mochie

    Alright thank you very much Sir Nico!

  • breaker

    run fast recovery first. after you run fast recovery you can see & play iso or cso games:)

  • SEi JOnas

    ahh okay thanks :)

  • Fernan De Castro

    Nico Help i cant play iso and cso games using 6.60 pro C i try the select button and holding R button when rebooting psp and its not functioning pls help

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    there’s no “holding R button while rebooting” on PRO-C
    Go to: Settings -> System settings ->System information.

    Does it say 6.60 PRO-C or 6.60 only?

  • Roger

    there is no pro C just 6.60 and when i try to run fast recovery the just shuts down no rebooting

  • Kuroi

    So my current version is 5.00 M33 do i still need to do the “How to remove prometheus” section? If so then I am to change the version.txt to exactly what the example is? My Psp is a 2000. my version.txt is:

    release:5.00:

    Hello, I just updated my Prome to CFW. . I just want to ask what is the use of
    CIPL Flasher?
    I’m Using PSP 2000 . .
    also how can I play a PSN version of a game(I have Final Fantasy VI PSN )? it sends me an Error says “The game could not be started”(FFFFFFFF) please reply. .

    also why does my PSN version of FFVI can’t start? I sorry for asking too much and thank you for replying my message. :)

  • Hyperionx7

    about psn ff you can using popsloader, check guides in this site

  • SEi JOnas

    yes, aw is that so ? is there an emulator for psp that can run ps2 games ? thanks for replying

  • Hyperionx7

    there will never be. my assumption psp more like advanced ps1 but less powerfull than ps2. if you want play ps2 games there are some remastered ports games for ps vita example metal gear solid 2 and 3.

  • Angel Caponpon

    Sir Nico, can you help me? when I tried to run the PSP update app, it says “The system software of your PSP system is version 9.90. There is no need to update.” please help me :(

  • someonee

    im sorry I didnt read it carefully. thank you so much Sir Nico. works fine on my PSP :D

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Great!

  • Shir Shir Moo

    nico i got the same problem

    The system software of your psp system is version 9.90 There is no need
    to update (what should i do pls tell me) :(

  • Guest

    =.=” cannot found the vsh folder

  • Guest

    now is say (this game cannot be started) what should i do?

  • Shir Shir Moo

    what should i do now (the update fail Contact technical support for assistance [LPTFFFFFFFE]) :(

  • Shir Shir Moo

    and now i cannot play any iso games :(

  • Shir Shir Moo

    nico what should now? after fail it turn to 6.60 and i taught no problem at all so i install PRO-C2 6.60 and it turn out ok noting happen but i cannot see any themes i put in y?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Wait you installed 6.60 pro C and it works fine you can play iso right?
    only problem is you can’t see themes?

  • Shir Shir Moo

    now i can’t even start my psp now :’(

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    You made a big mistake!! The guide specifically tells you that if you are running another custom firmware you have to “Change release from 9.90 to 5.50″ on version txt. THEN Update to Official 6.60 and only then install PRO 6.60.

    You must pay attention when doing firmware updates!
    Can’t just install pro 6.60 above your Prometheus like you did.
    I have no idea how to fix such a thing..
    Maybe ask on a video game shop, there must be a way to fix it but i don’t know how to.
    I’m sorry this happened to you.

  • Davide Guzzardi

    ehm…I have a problem…I have successfully followed this guide and now I have a beautiful 6.60 PRO-C….but now…I can’t see the icons of the games! when I “click” on the “memory stick” by my menu, i see only “660 PRO-C Fast Recovery”, “CIPIL Flasher For Pro-C (what is that?)”, the update one and two games not for the psp (one is an emulator for snes, the other is FFVII psx to psp)…

    what can I do?

  • Davide Guzzardi

    EDIT!

    ok, I make something stupid…I’ve put all the games into the “Games” folder because I think that in that way they runs…now I placed all of them into the ISO folder again…it’s all ok now! yuppie!!!

  • Davide Guzzardi

    i’m sorry for my english, just in case i wrote wrong! (I’m italian!)

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    What CFW have you got now?

  • Rachman Arief

    i have problem here,
    i succesfully upgrade to 6.60 , but i can’t see my games , i already put the game at ISO file …
    Help me pleasee…

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    6.60 is official firmware you need a custom firmware like PRO-C2 to play ISO, have you done what it says below “Installing Custom Firmware PRO-C2 6.60″?

  • Rachman Arief

    nope , i directly install the OFW

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Original firmware will only allow you to play games you buy on stores (UMD) or games you buy from PlayStation Network.
    If you want to play ISO files you must install the CFW as explained on the guide.

  • Rachman Arief

    thank you very much Nico :D

  • Alvin Nathaniel Huang

  • Animetrix

    Dear Nico,
    this is my first time updating my PSPgo by myself. My version is 6.20-C, do I have to upgrade official firmware to 6.60 first then install the custom firmware?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Yes.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Make sure version.txt says 5.50.

  • Dude

    I have the same problem, it keeps getting back to 84% then up to 99 only to go back to 84% again. My firmware is 5.50 Prome-4.

  • einlegacy

    Hey nico
    I have psp 3006 with ofw 6.39, can i upgrade to 6.60 pro c2?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    select button.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    make sure the ISO folder is not inside any other folder, for example:
    E:ISOgame.iso

    Where E: is the memory stick.
    Don’t put isos inside game folder.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I don’t see why you couldn’t.

  • http://www.facebook.com/umangone Umang Bhatia

    Finally it worked….thank you nico!

  • Memento Mori

    Thank you, Nico!

  • Joselito Serrano

    HELP!
    It says sorry this program doesn’t support your FW(0×06020010). What should I do?

  • lawls

    Have you updated your PSP’s original firmware to 6.60? The CFW will not work with other firmwares such as 5.50. (I’ve tried)

  • Tan9995

    Just a question I have a cfw 5.50 do i still need to update to 6.60official firmware before the 6.60 cfw and do i still need to set the version txt?

  • Tan9995

    OH MY GOD IT WORKED AND MY PSP DIDN’T BRICK!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH NICO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sugiarto Kosasi

    i open the file pro update
    what i found just black screen
    when i extract 660PRO-C2.rar i found seplugins , PSP and sdk
    does i need to copy all of them to my PSP or just copy CIPL_Flasher, FastRecovery and PROUPDATE.?

  • Matthew Peter

    Thank you nico for the guide :)
    btw, should i delete the CIPL_Flasher after installing PRO-C2?
    thx

  • Sugiarto Kosasi

    you can?
    where do u dl PRO-C2?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    You can delete that one yes.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    What are you trying to do? 6.60 pro-c2 is already latest firmware.
    The guide tells you exactly what to copy and where just re-read it.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Awesome. Enjoy your new PSP.

  • joi_NAME

    I’m having issues with installing the 6.60 C-2 firmware: I already have the official 6.60 installed but when I run the PROUPDATE on my PSP 2000 the reboot doesn’t go through, it just turns off midway… someone help please??

  • joi_NAME

    Nevermind I got it to work. Apparently my memory card couldn’t handle the data for some odd reason so I had to use a new one…

  • FLACKNUTZ

    WAY BETTER THAN YOUTUBE THANKS ALOT MAN!!!!

  • Brosman

    I installed successfully but my saves got corrupted…what can I do about that I was using MHU 9.90 before.

  • kamatso

    i have 6.20 pro b10 permanent cfw. can i switch to 6.60 pro c2? or i should not bother?

  • kamatso

    anyone???

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I would do it, some games will not work on 6.20.

  • kamatso

    ty for the reply. can u plz tell me what do i need to do to upgrade. as i mentioned i have the permanent cfw. i must uninstall it first with the 6.20 pro installer?or the cipl flasher first of the 6.20? sorry for the noob questions

  • Rifky Iyan Aristama

    Nico, I have cfw 6.35.
    1. Do i have to uninstal it before?? , or
    2. Do i just need to upgrade to ORIGINAL FW 6.60 and then install CUSTOM 6.60??

    Number 1 or number 2 Nico ??

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    If you can unninstall it and go back to OFW 6.35 it would be safer to update to OFW 6.60 and then to PRO-C.
    So 1 and then 2.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    6.60 pro-c is not permanent, you will need to run fast recovery if you shutdown the psp to reactivate it. (takes 3 secs)
    That being said.
    Download 6.20 pro installer and choose to uninstall pro.
    then follow the guide to update to 6.60 original firmware.
    and finally install 6.60 pro-c CFW.

  • Rifky Iyan Aristama

    thanks nico for your fast response.
    but i can’t find pro installer for my cfw 6.35 pro-b4 in official site of CFW (too old maybe?).

    can i upgrade to OFW 6.60 when my psp in condition not running fast recover (after shutdown and switch on it again) ? doesn’t it like running ofw ??

    *i have psp GO in semi recovery*
    thanks :)

  • Sarah Login

    6.60 Pro-C2 can be flashed to PSP-1000 and PSP-2000 units. My 1000 is flashed to run Pro C2.

    If you have a PSP-3000 or PSP-Go you will need to run it (fast recovery) every time you shutdown the PSP.

  • kamatso

    ty for the answers. now before i do anything stupid.i have the 1000 series .downloading the 6.20 pro installer and chossing to uninstall will get rid of the permanent flash too or do i need to uninstall the permanent first somehow and then run the 6.20 pro to uninstall the cfw.

  • Rifky Iyan Aristama

    OMG i have spent last night without sleep just for watch and learn tutorial upgrade cfw in this site, other site and youtube.
    i really worry if my PSP GO will be bricked, coz i use internal memory 16Gb, dont have and dont need memory stick. i’m so scary if my psp become trash and i can’t play my game again. :’(

    finally, in this morning i have courages and take risk to upgrade. i have CFW 6.35 pro B4.
    First i download installer for 6.35 pro-b4 firmware. put it in my psp. uninstall CFW so my psp become OFW.
    And then upgrade to OFW 6.60, and install PRO UPDATE CFW 6.60.
    i do that with battery low in psp, i’m so worry. (dont try this, if your psp off it will be BRICKED!!)
    but after 5 minutes the miracle happen. MY PSP ALREADY HAS CFW 6.60 PRO C2.

    I dont know that the step is so simple and just need courage and carefull.
    THANKS NICO THIS SITE SO ROCK !! BIG THANKS FROM ME !! HAHAHA
    *LOL*

    *sorry for bad grammar, english isn’t my mother language :p*

    AND NOW ITS TIME TO SLEEP, ITS ALREADY 9 O’CLOCK IN MY COUNTRY (Indonesia). THANKS AGAIN NICO !! XD

  • Sarah Login

    I don’t know sorry, I had a base 6.60 PSP without CFW when I flashed Pro C2 onto it.

    This was the tutorial I used when I did it. http://goo.gl/uvWMM2

  • Rifky Iyan Aristama

    i already upgrade my psp go this morning and it success.

    u need to download PRO INSTALLER for your firmware, 6.20 pro BX (can search in google). u will get 3 folder, cipl flasher, proupdate, fast recovery.
    Just copy proupdate folder (file eboot inside it ) to your psp. so the pattern:
    I:/PSP/GAME/PROUPDATE/EBOOT.PBP
    unplug psp. run proupdate, choose uninstall (push triangle).

    and then u just need follow step from nico’s tutorial.
    upgrade to OFW 6.60 and then install CFW 6.60.
    hope this will help u :)

  • joohyun

    after im finished with every thing, what is the pro update for? You said that if you shutdown your psp by holding the power button for 10seconds you have to use fast recovery utility but is the update thing now useless? can i delete my pro update?

  • Ron.

    Nope. just leave them alone. you’ll need that for future updates. if you delete it, it can semi-brick your PSP

  • Ron.

    Selamat ya gan :3

  • joohyun

    Thanks, glad I didn’t delete it yet. But won’t there be no more updates because psp is kind of past it’s time?

  • Rifky Iyan Aristama

    did you have upgrade it to OFW 6.60??
    u can run proupdate if your psp has already OFW 6.60

  • Edgar Asuncion

    WHEN I FINISHED UPDATING MY PSP THE MAC ADDRESS DO NOT CHANGE ITS OKAY RIGHT

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    you missed this part “Installing Custom Firmware PRO-C2 6.60″

  • Edgar Asuncion

    how to do it

  • Edgar Asuncion

    nevermind but when you upgrade your psp into 6.60 the select button it still can use right

  • kamatso

    Thanks for the effort all. I guess I’ll stick with my current cfw since I don’t have any comp ability issues yet.

  • darrentdante

    i hv 6.60 PRO B & want upgrade to PRO C-2…
    is stiil can upgrade without unisntall CFW or
    uninstall first then upgrade ??

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    finished updating! thanks for the guide nico! now i can play any psp games without worries!!!

  • Salman Mulok

    hey … i just deleted my “PRO-UPDATE” and then the 6.60c2 in my psp becomes 6.60 only .. how can i make it return to 6.60c2 ?. everytime I retry the procedure above … my psp dont show the 3 folders … why is that ?

  • Salman Mulok

    Nico heelp ! ..

    I already did the procedure and i made it till the 6.60-c2 … and then after that i decided to delete the “PROUPDATE” one … and then after a few while … my PSP which is already 6.60c2 becomes 6.60 again ! … why is that … and when i tries to do the procedure again to make it 6.60c2 my psp dont ready the 3 Files .. and it says “there are now games ” FTW !

  • Ron.

    I think that’s because you deleted the core files of the Fast Recovery and Pro Update. since i don’t have a PSP, i can’t help you any further

  • Ron.

    If Pro Team does release an update, it will be around… PSVita 3000?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    If you shutdown the console it goes back to 6.60,
    Run fast recovery to reactivate.

  • Salman Mulok

    but my psp dont read those files anymore .. when i open my magic stick`s memory … it says “no files” but when i check through PC the 3 files are there … thats my prob . T_T

  • Salman Mulok

    thanks man … Fast Reply ! .. I appreciate it

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    As your first commemnt says “by running fast recover”, you must have deleted the fast recovery folder if you don’t see it.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Use the PSP to format the memory stick.
    Settings->System Settings -> format memory stick.
    Then connect to the PC: You will see a folder named PSP, inside that folder a folder named GAME, inside of it copy the 3 folders you downloaded.

    -E:PSPGAMECIPL_Flasher
    -E:PSPGAMEFastRecovery
    -E:PSPGAMEPROUPDATE

    Unplug PSP go to GAME menu and run pro update.
    Now you are on 6.60-pro. if you ever turn off your psp or remove battery, run fast recovery to reactivate.

  • R-Jay Caluya

    i’ve just done updating my psp 5.50 to 6.60
    after that….my psp dont read psp games anymore….
    every time i run a game..the game freeze and shutdown..
    please help me!!!!

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    So you can see the games?

  • R-Jay Caluya

    yes,but everytime i run it…it freezes and shut the psp down

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I assume these aren’t new games you downloaded from this site? They must not be clean isos but fixed pre-patched to work on prometheus and that’s causing trouble.

  • R-Jay Caluya

    like monster hunter portable 3rd and bakugan?

  • R-Jay Caluya

    ok i mean what games are for version 6.60?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    All games on this site are untouched isos all will work on 6.60, what i mean is if the iso you have was already fixed to work on the 5.50 firmware it can have problems to work on 6.60.

  • R-Jay Caluya

    even the the emulated ps1 games are not working now >.<

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    what’s the system software on Settings -> System settings ->System information.?

  • R-Jay Caluya

    system software: 6.60 PRO-C2

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Seems alright. You are the first person who experience problems after updating, I think the problem is on the games, everything should be fine if you get untouched isos.

  • R-Jay Caluya

    BTW…what do you mean untouched iso? and thanks for replying messages

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Any game from you see on this site is untouched, (not fixed for 5.50 prome) and any other site which doesn’t specifically tell you the iso is “fixed” then it’s untouched and will work on 6.60.

  • R-Jay Caluya

    thanks alot nico for helping!! :)

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I’m sorry the games you had don’t work properly, but from now on every game you get will work.

  • R-Jay Caluya

    do you have the apps to lock the psp folders?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I don’t know what that is.

  • R-Jay Caluya

    ohh sorry…a game where you can hide your psp folders

  • Jay Empleo

    after i update my psp to 6.60 all my games ( FF VII CC, godseaterburstundub, avatar, tekken 6 , naruto ) are gone but the save files are there . but when i looked in the pc ( USB cable connection) it is still there so i reinstall all the games again.

    P.S
    I cant see the games anymore but it occupies space .

  • Jan Daryll Palanca

    Did you update your PSP to PRO cfw yet??

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    updating to 6.60 is half the guide. you need to do the part that says “Installing Custom Firmware PRO-C2 6.60″

  • Schion

    my current version is 6.39 PRO-B10
    pllanning on playing VC3 but would it work?

  • Jan Daryll Palanca

    I’m currently and proudly using a slightly older 6.20 w/cfw PRO-B8!
    And it works great!!!just make sure you extract the game first! That’s one of the >main< issues if you know what I mean…

  • Scarlet

    Hi Nico:)! This is my first time posting on your blog and thanks to you I was able to update to 6.60 Pro C2 :)! Thanks very much :)!

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

  • daniekl

    hi, after updating from 5.00 m33-6 to 6.60 OFW, my psp doesnt turn on just the power light is on. but when i remove the battery and plug it in with the ac adapter, the psp turned on. is it something wrong with the battery? or did i do someething wrong. oh by the way, my psp model is psp2004.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    what happens if the psp is on while plugged in and then you add the battery without unplugging the psp.

  • Paopaopao

    Help please!
    i did everything correct as far as i know but when i try to acces ANYTHING from the setting tab after installing the 6.60 PRO Firmware my PSP crashes. i have PSP – FAT

  • daniekl

    well the situation is that i need it to be plugged in to turn on the device. once the device is on, i can unplugged it.

  • Tendou Souji

    Hi. I’m on 5.50 Prome-4 right now and whenever i try to launch the 6.60 OFW update. A message will pop up saying that the system configuration of my PSP system does not appear to be correct. The update cannot be started. The error code is DRNFFFFFFD7. Any way to fix this?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Did you try what it says below the red letters?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    shut it down completely, when you are back on original firmware try reinstalling pro.

  • Tendou Souji

    Yes. I have accessed the version text document from “Flash 0″ of the psp and changed the release to 5.50 however, I am still unable to update my firmware to OFW 6.60

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Well i don’t know something on prometheus is not allowing the official update to happen. try googling that error code i’m sure there will be a solution out there, sorry i can’t be more precise than this.

  • Afiq Juwaini

  • Muhamad Mustaqim

  • Ron.

    Nope

  • Muhamad Mustaqim

    Thanks, Ron….. :)

  • Iseliz

    after I installed the 6.60 pro c-2, I can’t access the system settings, the psp just turns off and reverts back to 6.60 ofw everytime I try acessing system settings. What should I do?

  • Iseliz

    Same here. Have you fixed it yet??

  • Iseliz

    holding L button for re-installing doesn’t work for me

  • Daniel Ng

    Hi, Nico,
    I have updated my psp 1000 to ofw6.60 already, but when I tried to run the proupdate of 660pro_c2, the MS indication light was on for a few seconds, then the screen blanked out (no character displayed) and no response to any key. When I turned off the psp and rebooted, the cfw was not installed and the psp is still ofw660. What have I done wrong or what should I do?
    Thanks for help.

  • Micheal

    Hello Nico
    i found a forum says ”if you’re memory stick is not original it may brick you psp”
    is this true ??

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    My memory stick is not original and works perfectly fine.
    It’s not even a PRO DUO stick it’s a Micro SD with an adaptor…so i doubt not buying a Sony stick will break anything but your pocket! lol

  • Sarah Login

    I’ve been using a 4GB Sandisk for the last 4 years. Without any trouble at all.

  • passerby

    Er, asking here. If i got no data cable and insteas use memory card reader for upgrading it, will it work? And also where to download 6.60 upgrade and is it 6.60 pro or cfw? Andafter upgrading it must i download that cfw thing for recovery? Because i had something similar like it, thanks in advance ^^

  • shinomori_kyo

    I’ve been using the same pro duo to micro sd adapter since about a month after I got my first psp way back in 2009. Best three dollars I ever spent :) (btw, they’re now a little cheaper in price) I haven’t bricked either psp I owned… The only problem with my first psp was that the umd drive was busted and had to be taped shut.

    Well, if you don’t follow the exact instructions on installing firmware, you could very well brick it. I about did when I installed 6.60, good thing that I looked at the comments and figured out where I was about to go wrong, I can’t afford another psp… and I want to get a 2000 or 3000…

    With the memory card adapter that I have, the max size is 16gb.

  • shinomori_kyo

    it probably will work. but the psp may make you format your card. I think that for 6.60 you have to upgrade to 9.90 or something like that and then downgrade to 6.60

    You really should get one of those usbs. Some dollar trees sell them (that’s where I got mine, that and with my ps3…)

  • Ivan Sydorenko

    Thank you so much!
    This helped me fix my problem!!
    REALLY WORKS!

  • WangDi

    Hey Nico, i’ve followed the instruction as posted but i’ve encountered a problem with the 6.60 C+ fix. seems that the CIPL Flasher is corrupt when i extract it. Is there any sort of problem from my end?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    i have reuploaded pro-cfix3 download begins as soon as you skip ad and it doesn’t require password to extract. try again.
    PS: CIPL Flasher doesn’t work with most models.

  • passerby1

    too bad where i live doesn’t have any store that sell it., and i just can’t take the risk that while upgrading that it will fail. btw, thx for reply. i think i ought to borrow my friend’s usb cable XD, well, the user above is me, i just forget to register id XD

  • passerby1

    asking again, sorry i am very mislead in stuff like this. i got a pro firmware that said 635 PRO-B Updater, must i uninstall it? then in the memory stick data i got PSPTM Update ver 6.35. must i uninstall it too? thx in advance

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    steps are uninstall pro 6.35,
    update to official 6.60,
    install pro 6.60

  • jjtonix

    Hey Nico im am about to install this but what is the chance that it would work

  • curry-ninja

    100% if you put it in the right folder :)

  • passerby1

    so i must uninstall the 635 PRO-B updater? ok thx XD

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    run pro updater and press triangle to uninstall that’s all there is to it.

  • WangDi

    Ok did the re-installation and it works now. Although i’m having a second problem, most of my ISO games won’t work after i download it here. Only games working fine are Corpse Party and 3rd Birthday, i’ve tried some methods but so far none of them seem to work. I’m using a PSP Slim 2000 with the current 6.60 C+ fix and did almost everything i can fiddle in the CFW menu. Some say that my memstick is a fake one. I don’t know what to do now :(

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Odd what game doesn’t work? are all games in iso format inside the iso folder?

  • FunkenMaster

    What should I need to do to upgrade to 6.60 C? I have 6.39 B7 right now and I want to update to 6.60. thanks!

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I’m pretty sure everything you need to know it’s written on the article above.

  • WangDi

    Yes all of them are in ISO format. The only games working are Parasite Eve and Corpse party, Silent Hill will make my PSP automatically shut down whenever i play it, you can’t past the starting logo of the game, GE and MH on the other hand will be playable only when you’re on standby and not taking any mission etc., once i picked up a mission and head out either the game will freeze while loading or an infinite loading screen will occur. I did every method i see (Even did a re-format) i even downgraded it to 6.35 but that’d only made my psp black screen for a couple of minutes.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Try with a different memory stick.

  • WangDi

    Thanks Nico. changing Memory stick did solve the problem, Thanks a lot man!

  • Schiffer

    I have a problem here when trying to launch the proupdate. The program starts but the menu where all the choices (install, launch etc.) doesn’t show up. So do you have any idea on why it is like that and how i can fix it. Thanks in advance.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Great!

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    On what firmware are you?

  • Nora Voc

    anybody know how to unbrick psp(Without pandora battery)
    my psp is 2000 ver.

  • passerby1

    If I’m using an old psp 2000 that was on 5.03 gen -C would this guide still work? my psp is one of the ones that couldnt be fully hacked and had to reload the cfw everytime it fully shutdown

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I think it will. I don’t have it to try. PRO-C is not permanent either. But it’s better.

  • passerby1

    Ok, I can confirm then that this cfw indeed works like a charm for any 5.03 gen c users still out there. Worked like a charm, thx nico.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Great! =D

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I don’t know sorry, google a bit i think there are ways.

  • 313

    is pandora battery required to use to install this custom firmware?? and can i install it while my psp system is 5.50 prome-3??

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    it’s not.
    the article tells you what to do if you have prometheus, give it a read.

  • Hiruma

    what if I only got Prometheus 5.00 m33-6 on model 1000?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Follow the post instructions.

  • Guest

    i already did the above instructions, i have prome 5.50 and it is now 6.60, now the problem is that the select button is not working anymore, i can’t revert back to usb device from flash 0, please help, thanks in advance.

  • Wahyu Allawy

    i’ve done all of the instruction now when i start my game(all of my game) won’t work, please help me Nico.

  • Wahyu Allawy

    it’s only show the PSP labels then goes blank(turn off automatically)

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Try formatting the memory card with the PSP. and copy back a game to test.
    Maybe the games are patched for prometheus? or you downloaded from this site?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    6.60 official firmware? i don’t understand how updating to OFW can cause that. I think the select button doesn’t make proper contact maybe it’s dirty or something physical is going on i never opened a PSP so can’t really help much with that.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I have no idea sorry.

  • flash 0

    the vsh menu, it’s not showing whenever i press select, i don’t think it’s a a hardware problem, and the games are not visible anymore, pls help.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I believe you didn’t install PRO Custom firmware at all.
    Basically the guide tells you to do 2 things:
    1. Update to oficial 6.60
    2. Install pro custom firmware.

    You haven’t done the second. Just follow the guide if you skip half the guide of course things will not work!

  • A.F

    Thanks Nico! ><
    But I thhing it's not vhs.txt but vsh.txt

  • Wahyu Allawy

    if i format my memory card, will my save data be formatted to? or should i back up my save data to my computer first before formatting my psp memory card?

  • Koudon

    I can’t update my psp anymore…when i run pro updater for PRO-C FIX 3 it says “Sorry. This program doesn’t support your FW(0×05050010).” then goes back to the main menu.

    When i try to run the regular 6.60 firmware update it says “The system software of your PSP system is version 9.90. There is no need to update.” when my firmware is only 5.50 GEN-D3
    Please help!

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    solution right up there just read.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    when did i say vhs?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    back it up. format deleted everything.

  • Koudon

    Sorry, yea it was there. Thanks ! I updated to version 6.60 and then went into 6.60 PRO-C Fix 3 now! Now the last thing is am I allowed to delete any of these files off my PSP for some space? I got both updater on my PSP. Thanks for telling me the solution was up there =)

  • A.F

  • Quintin Martin

  • shine444

    I followed all the instructions above and the system information says that it is running 6.60 PRO-C but my games won’t work. When I try to run them, all I get is a black screen before the system shuts down. I have tried reformatting the memory stick but it doesn’t solve the problem.

  • Guest

    In case you have Prometheus 5.50 installed:

    If you have Prometheus 5.50 installed and you can’t update to 6.60 because you see a message saying you already have the latest firmware then do this:

    Press select on your psp then change usb device to flash 0.

    Connect your psp on your computer go to vsh folder.

    Go to etc folder and open version txt.

    Change release from 9.90 to 5.50 and save.

    this is also my problem but when i press the select button to my psp it’s doesn’t work can you help me with my problem ?

  • vincentloo

  • Sofyan Oliviera Jr

    hey nico
    is PRO-C (FIX-3) still be able to play PSX games ?
    which is better, PRO-B or PRO-C ?
    thanks

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    PRO-C (FIX-3) is better than PRO-B and PRO-C!

    =)

    I recommend you use this in case you have problems with psn games!

    go here for details… http://www.nicoblog-games.com/psn-bug-with-6-60-pro-c2-better-downgrade-to-pro-c-fix3/

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    I prefer PRO-C (fix-3)than PRO-B and PRO-C

    nico recommended this to all of you if you have problems with psn games! =)

    go here if you want to know why: http://www.nicoblog-games.com/psn-bug-with-6-60-pro-c2-better-downgrade-to-pro-c-fix3/

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    nico said if you have problems with playing psn games
    use PRO-C (FIX-3)!

  • barpnagget

    Do I need to format my memory stick before installing the CFW?

  • Ranieri Mazzeo

    huh, i have the 6.35 PRO-B, is this 6.60 version is better than mine? whats the advantages of changing to 6.60?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    It’s not necessary.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    All games work on it.
    If you don’t have problems with any game stick to it. Until you find a game that doesn’t work on 6.35 you’ll have to update to play it.

  • Ranieri Mazzeo

    ty nico !!!! u’re da best !!! o/

  • Mark Pedraja

    Hi, i have followed your guide and installed the cfw 6.60 pro but in sys information it says ’6.60 PRO’ only without ‘C’, how can i fix it??? thx^^

  • barpnagget

    thank you and nice site. this site seems to have everything I wanted and I like the layout. my adblock will automatically be disabled for this site.

  • Justin

    Can I play chrono cross multi disc eboots here without using a popsloader? Thanks for the guide though.

  • Sofyan Oliviera Jr

    but what is the difference between PRO-C and PRO-B ?

  • Sofyan Oliviera Jr

    www

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    the truth is I don’t know actually………
    =)
    ask nico!

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    With 6.60 pro-c & the PSN version of chrono cross i uploaded no need popsloader.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Thank’s it really helps a lot it’s a hard time for websites right now.

  • Wolfzen

    My cousin has a PSP 3000, and he’s giving it to me (yay!) but well, you always have to launch the CFW (PRO-C 6.60) when you start up his PSP, or else no games or themes. Any way to fix it? The CFW always works on startup for my PSP 2000, but not on the 3000.

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    wait what?
    when you start your psp 2000,your cfw automatically launches!?
    I always launch my psp 3000 using fast recovery………
    anyway,what are you gonna do with those 2 psps?
    =o

  • Wolfzen

    Idk….. Well, the one my cuzzy gave me has NO BATTERY, and plus the PSP he has is 16GB memory stick…. And it’s black D:<<<
    Do you have to use Fast Rec. every time? Seems annoying to me -.-"

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    That’s correct you have to.
    Solution: Don’t shut it down. Just send it to sleep if needed.

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    ah,that’s why your cousin gave it to you…..
    about the fast recovery,yes!
    you’ll get used to it after using fast recovery many times……. =D
    like nico said,just put your psp to sleep!
    you’re lucky to have another psp and 16GB memory stick……
    well do you have your brother and sister to play with?
    just askin! =o

  • Ryouma Ryuunosuke

    hey , can anyone tell me how to backup my oldest version before update to new version because i’m afraid if this version not working.

  • josh alan

    so you need a pro update afterall so that you can play your psp :( i suddenly deleted my pro update and i lost all my psp games .please can anyone help me

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Use the guide above to install pro again.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Don’t do it you are afraid.

  • Wolfzen

    Yeah, but I’m lazy to do Fast Rec.
    I don’t shut it down on purpose…. 5/6ths of the time, it just messes up.
    I found a way to do it permanently, and you basically have to downgrade to 6.20 apparently….

  • Wolfzen

    I have a brother. Who is a jerk.
    Anyway, my cousin doesn’t have a battery for it…. I’m just takin’ it as back-up/it has better graphics. I dunno anymore.

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    your brother?
    I’m starting to think that you’re the same as this girl from
    watamote right here! (look pic below)
    and that annoying boy is your brother!
    (just kidding kitten!)

    hey,what kind of games are you playing anyway?
    I’m curious………. =D

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    you know that some games can’t be played on 6.20………
    just asking……… =)

  • XAraragiX

    lost all psp games?? u mean they dont show up on xmb??

  • XAraragiX

    newer game will have problem with 6.20

  • XAraragiX

    pro c adds the compatibilies of newer games which pro b didnt have

  • XAraragiX

    if u do that u will lose access to your pirated games

  • XAraragiX

    this back then with pro B even if i disable all plugins grrrr will never succeed but pro c oh its smooth

  • CISphil

    There’s likely a million of these but, my version comes up as 5.00 M33-6. I’d like to play Monster hunter Portable 3rd but it doesn’t seem to be working. Do I need to/ can I change?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Yeah you need to update.

  • CISphil

    Thanks. Do you know, will it have an effect on the other games I already have?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Games that aren’t clean (pre patched/fixed) might or might not work.
    Your old save data (progress) might show up as corrupted data.

  • CISphil

    Ah ok. Thanks for the help.

    could be a virus

  • josh alan

    i would but i am using my parents laptop so i am taking my psp to the game shop and ask them to install the pro update

  • Wolfzen

    Does it show up on your mem stick-nya?

  • Wolfzen

    DON’T.
    You’re not supposed to be hacking your psp in the first place; they’re going to charge you for hacking….

  • Wolfzen

    Corpse Party, Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, Hexyz Force, Obscure: The Aftermath, and some others.

  • Wolfzen

    I think .ctfs don’t work on it either….

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    not visual novels and otome?

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    he’ll go to jail if he does that?

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    so,are you going for 6.60?
    or 6.20?

  • CISphil

    Just another thanks as I’ve finished and tested the game. Works perfect. Very much appreciated!

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Great!

  • XAraragiX

    if the game still shows up on mem stick then just use fastrecovery
    this is light cfw u need to run fast recovery or the proupdate everytime u turn off (resets, sleep dont count) the psp
    oops i replied to wolf LOL

  • XAraragiX

    depends on where u live, in indonesia the game shop encourage pirate LOL, even the store in mall sell pirated games XD

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    I believe there’s another file available (aside from PROUPDATE and FastRecovery) to make PRO CFW permanent? It’s only for PSP 1000 and 2000 with TA-088v1 motherboard and below afaik. It’s good for those who really are lazy to run FastRecovery every time they boot it up after shutting it down.

    Anyways, thanks for all the games Admin. :D

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    for doing illegal acts?
    =0

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Added the file to the pack and edited the guide to acknowledge the permanent install as well. Thanks.

    I followed this steps, but after I copied my games from my laptop the only game it shows is NBA2k11 and it’s playable, how can I fix this? thanks in advance

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    Please elaborate. :P

    Well, in which folder did you put the games? If those are .iso or .cso files which most likely is, try to put it in the ISO folder. The path would be like this – Memory Stick>ISO

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Yeah i guess he resolved it cos when the comment show as “guest” it means the user deleted it.
    I was just waiting for him to resolve it on his own cos it didn’t make much sense.
    BTW thanks for helping others.

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    hacking your psp?
    =)

  • XAraragiX

    i mean try t hook up your psp using usb to pc and see if the iso still there or not
    if its there then follow the above if not u’re screwed dude
    really i never experience firmware deleting iso by itselves

  • Wolfzen

    No, I mean did you plug it in your PC and check if it’s there?

  • Wolfzen

    It’s not hacking, I mean you’re sort of making SONY lose money and GameStop is losing money too, ’cause you’re getting those games for free…. And one of my friends met a guy who showed it to GameStop and got charged for it….

  • Wolfzen

    o.o” Technically you are playing games that cost money for free, so technically hacking your PSP…. I’m confused now-nya….

  • Wolfzen

    NO. Just a fine to pay for all the hacked games.

  • Wolfzen

    Not jail, a huge fine-nya.

  • Wolfzen

    True…. Then, josh alan, where do you live?

    so what you are trying to say is that If I get the the gameshop guy to install pro update for me then I get the game that I already had right :)

  • josh alan

  • Izumi

    I’m using CFW 6.60 Pro-C fix 3, but I have some games I can’t move my characters (all my buttons are working fine). Example: Fairy Tail Portable Guild 2, Fate/Extra USA ( for FT and F/E is that I get stuck at the title screen. I pressed everything on my PSP but still stuck there) and Akiba’s Trip Plus. Please help me!

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    I’m not sure if I understood well, but, maybe you have accidentally moved the power switch to hold ?

  • Rafli Hanyalah Rafli

    How do i know that mine is PSP 1000/2000/3000

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    look under the battery.

  • Rafli Hanyalah Rafli

    .thanks,mine is 1001..

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Nice!

  • Izumi

    I checked, but the Hold button wasn’t switched on. This only happen with the games I mentioned. My analog stick is working too. Is there any way to fix this problem?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    This is so weird, but when did it start happening?

  • Arisato Minato

    I’m using 6.60 PROMOD B-10 but if I Install 6.60 PRO C fix3 will my old save game data still work? Will 6.60 PRO C fix3 works on scenario 013 in dissidia duodecim freeze problems?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I don’t know but you can always try and if it doesn’t work go back to b-10

  • XAraragiX

    save data wont be corrupted but back it up just in case
    as for dissidia i dunno never played it (just not my type of game)

  • XAraragiX

    this is firmware problem reinstall it

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    First of all, did you have this problem right from the start? Did these games play normally at some time ?
    If not, then, my guess is that either there is somthing wrong with the ISOs, so maybe try redownloading them, or something went wrong with the firmware, so try reinstalling it…

  • XAraragiX

    i doubt its iso problem if the iso isnt complete it will show up as corrupted

    my quess is the firmware

  • Izumi

    It only started happening when I started the Fate/Extra game. It never happened before to any other games, so I thought it was the game’s problem; I even downloaded from other websites, but the problem still remained. And then I saw from this page that CFW 6.60 Pro-C2 is new and has bugs, so I went and installed CFW 6.60 ProC fix3. The problem remains. I tried reinstalling the CFW from the downloads I got from other web, nothing works.

    EDIT: The START button problem happened to Fairy Tail Portable 2 too. For Akiba’s Trip Plus, it’s that my character just doesn’t walk/run/etc. I can make him jump and fight, square and triangle buttons work too, but I just can’t move the character.

  • Izumi

    No, only these three games have these weird problems. The other games work properly. The CFW I’m using is 6.60 Pro-C fix 3. It works with P3P, God’s Eater 2, Phantasy Star 2 Infinity, etc. It just doesn’t work properly with these 3 games.

  • XAraragiX

    this is so weird

  • BingLingSao

    i have CFW 6.60 PRO-C2 does this version still work with this theme pack??

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    ALl 6.60 pro work.

  • Nora Voc

    sometimes i use avira antivirus and found some error on my memory stick or i just format memory through laptop

  • Rafli Hanyalah Rafli

    And how do i Know That Mine is 5.50 prometheus?

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    The first part of the tutorial. Instead of the 6.35 PRO stated in the image it’ll say 5.50 Prometheus.

  • Rafli Hanyalah Rafli

    Mine says that is my psp is already updated to9.90

  • Rafli Hanyalah Rafli

    I could’n update it because it says is already updated to 9.90

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    Last part of the tutorial; change the USB Device to flash0, connect your PSP to your PC, locate version.txt and then change 9.90 to 5.50. I did this waaaay back when I was udpating 5.50 to 6.20 and I had not encountered any error while updating.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Thanks i wish people take the time to read what they have in front of them, it would save so much questioning.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I know you did =P

  • http://www.melikesart.com Will

    I tried to install the first Eboot file for the update, but it stopped at 89% with this error message: “The update failed. Contact techincal support for assistance. (LPTFFFFFFFE)”

    Then I checked my System Info and saw that the PSP is now running on 6.60, so I figured maybe it did work. I tried running the CIPL Flasher but it told me that the file is corrupted. I tried the PRO Update. It worked.

    So I’m now running 6.60 PRO-C, but I’m worried that the sudden halt at 89% during installation had some effect somehow. I still can’t run a FFIX PSN ROM I downloaded, but at least nothing majorly tragic happened to the PSP.

  • Don

    I thought this was such a clear and good instruction, until I came to step 5 of “Installing Custom Firmware PRO-C (fix 3)” section.

    I have psp 1000 and was trying to run CIPL_Flasher, which told me the game data was corrupted and could not be run. I tried redownloading the CFW again and again and finally decided I was stuck with OFW 6.60 (actually, I knew that there was always a way to hack psp1000 from any kind of disaster, but it would’ve been another day’s googling and research for me… and that’s what I feared).

    Anyway, as it turns out, I had to run PROUPDATE first, and then CIPL_Flasher.
    Including this in the above instructions will really help. Maybe it’s a common sense that CFW should be installed, and then a flasher run, but to the uninitiated, the instructions above just sounded like you could run CIPL_Flasher straight away and be done with it.

    “5. Unplug the PSP USB cable, now use the PSP to navigate to the Game menu, if you have a PSP 1000/2000 and you want the CFW to be permanently active you can try running CIPL_Flasher to attempt a permanent Install, if your model is not supported it will tell you so in that case use PRO UPDATE to install PRO:”

    Right? Doesn’t say if you have a PSP 1000/2000, you gotta run PROUPDATE first, and THEN CIPL_Flasher. Again, maybe I am lacking a common sense, but I am sure a lot of people will appreciate explicitly being told to run PROUPDATE first. In fact, that paragraph is telling me to run CIPL_Flasher and if it fails because my model is not supported, then use PROUPDATE. But no, everyone needs to run PROUPDATE first, and depending on whether your model is supported or not, run CIPL_Flasher once and for all, or FastRecovery every time you turn on your PSP. The instructions were otherwise exemplary, compared to all those messy and confusing instructions you find elsewhere.

  • XAraragiX

    this is OFW update loop error (scary error that can brick the psp be carefull)
    uninstall pro c
    keep the ofw 660 update folder
    i suggest u to install pro b10 fix 1 http://procfw.googlecode.com/files/660PRO-B10.fix1.rar
    open downgrader and install 6.60 OFW from downgrader https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B6rjp6ojj0-pQk10dWx0elNNeU0/edit?pli=1
    then u’re free to update to pro c
    Good luck bro, i’m praying for your success

  • Lee Jaejin’s Wife

    Hi Nico. So I did all this so I could be able to play Peace Walker and it all worked out, but I’ve been having a problem where pressing start does nothing and when I press home, I can’t toggle between yes or no to quit a game. In other aspects my d pad works fine except for in this case. So basically I can’t play the game simply because the start button isn’t doing anything.
    Do you have any idea on how I can fix this? Thanks a ton!

  • Guest

    also, the it says the CIPL Flasher is corrupt :/ and I’m trying to enter recovery mode so I can’t do it

  • Guest

  • XAraragiX

    u certainly pointed something good job there

  • XAraragiX

    firmware issue reinstall it
    ( it seems many people is having this problem i will try to search for a sure fix)

  • jayson

    “If you have an older version of PRO CFW installed you can
    run PROUPDATE and press triangle to uninstall it. (PROUPDATE is included
    with 6.60 PRO-C Fix3 download)
    If you have Prometheus 5.50 CFW installed you might need to edit the
    “version.txt” to be able to update. (details at the bottom of this
    page)”

    what if i am using gen d version?

  • jayson

    already installed, nvm…

  • http://www.melikesart.com Will

    But I’m already running 6.60 Pro-C with no problems so far. I now don’t have any problems playing PS1 games that were crashing before my update. So can I consider the update successful even though it stopped at 89%? Nothing bad seems to be happening so far. I can play FFIX now.

  • http://www.melikesart.com Will

    I got the same Data is Corrupted warning when I tried CIPL_Flasher. Let me try your suggestion. Thank you.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    You are right, i just don’t have a 1000 model i only have a 3000 and i assumed CILP_Flasher worked on OFW just like PRO Update, i guess not, thanks i’ll fix this on the guide. Sorry for the trouble.

  • Lee Jaejin’s Wife

    I’ve been having the issue when I was on 5.50 gen d3 too though. Should I just completely reflash my PSP? I was hoping that updating would also fix the issue.
    What I’ve concluded is that my start button is being held down even though I can still click it. Is that still a firmwae issue?~ I’ve found a small fix for it so that I can play games (I put the PSP on hold and then unhold so it clicks start again) but it’s still annoying T.T

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    Err… I think it’s got nothing to do with the Firmware. Probably some dust, or something similar got under a few buttons, and they put pressure on the connection points. You could open the PSP, and clean it. I had a similar experience with the R-Trigger a few months ago…
    It’s just a thought though…

  • Lee Jaejin’s Wife

    Yeah that’s what I first thought it might be as well. :/ it sounded weird to me too that it could be a firmware issue but I read from some one else who had the exact same issue as me say that reflashing it worked. I don’t know which to try. Plus, I’m worried about fucking up my PSP by opening it lol and I don’t have a Pandora battery to hack it again.

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    Well… If you know what you’re doing, opening it up is not that hard… xD If you know someone good with that kind of stuff, you should definitely give it a shot!
    BTW, what do you mean you don’t have a Pandora battery? Aren’t you supposed to make your own battery into a pandora? You do have the PSP battery, right?

  • mit999

    i had 5.50 prome-4 and i tried to change that “version.txt” file to 5.50 from 9.90 but after that when i disconnected my psp something happened but i could not select anythingnot even could i connect my psp to the pc again. what do i do?

  • mit999

    PLEASE reply quickly

  • Claudio Frollo

    So, once again, ps1 games will work with this method too right?

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    YES

  • Claudio Frollo

    Awesome! last question, im waiting to receive my 32GB card, in the meantime I got only a 4GB, if I do this cfw update, do I have to do it all over again when I get the 32¿? Or I will have to swap cards?

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    Just switch those two. The custom firmware is like in the PSP’s internal memory, not in the Memory Stick afaik.

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    You will only have to copy the CFW files from the 4GB memory stick to the 32GB memory stick. Just that. No need to re-install the CFW ;)

  • Claudio Frollo

    My PSP says its 6.60 already, where shall I start, im just scared to mess it up. It lets me download games via PSN store already though

  • Audiks Orxz Trece

    you’re sad aren’t you? T^T

  • Valent Vincent

    Hi Nico, my CFW is 6.60 pro-C(fix3). the problem is I can’t start FFIX. It says “The game could not be started. (80010002)”. What should I do? thank you.

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    The game cannot be started with fix 3 ?? That’s weird… Hmm… Which version is it? The PSN, or the PSX version ??

  • Claudio Frollo

    So I think I got it now, and im ready to do it. Do I need the memory stick inside the PSP to start the process or can be done just with the USB and the computer??

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    After copying the files you need to run those on your PSP.

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    Yes, It won’t be installed through PC

  • Claudio Frollo

    OK now I plug my PSP into my macbook and it shows nothing, psp folder is totally blank. All I got to do is copy the PRO FIX 3 to the game folder, but I can’t see it. The Memory stick is brand new, and unused. and my psp is already official 6.60, what should I do’??

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    The memory stick is new, and it has nothing inside, right? Then, format it from the PSP. Most times it automatically creates all the folders needed. Or just make a folder called “GAME”

  • Claudio Frollo

    Thanks everybody! Done and done! hopefully, now I must copy some game into the PSP to see how it runs…the images go into the GAME folder too, right?

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    The images go to PICTURE, or PHOTO folder lol xD

  • Claudio Frollo

    lol would had never thought that, but everything is working smooth, great guide and helpful people here. Ready to have a few sleepless nights rofl

  • Rodrigo El Toto Acuña

    Help, it says PRO doesn’t support my fw
    it’s 6.35

    Btw, i can’t seem to access the folder to edit Prometheus, where am i supposed to press select?
    I just got the psp today, it’s a 3000

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    You are at OFW 6.35, right? So you tried to install the 6.60 CFW right from the start? You’re supposed to install the 6.60 OFW first.
    Also if the PSP doesn’t have Prometheus installed already, you don’t need to do that

  • Claudio Frollo

    hoho yes, all great. but PSP games run perfectly, not so PS1, they show as corrupted =( plz answer seriously.
    I put all psp in an ISO folder I created in root and its great, but ps1 mostly don’t show, and 1 that shows, its an ps1 iso shows as corrupted. Now im once again clueless

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    If I understood well, then I have to say that the PSOne games go to: PSP/GAME folder. NOT inside the ISO folder ;)

  • Claudio Frollo

    is that in the same folder as the CFW goes? or do I need to create a GAME folder, same as I had to create an ISO folder for psp iso files?

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    Same as CFW ;)

  • Rodrigo El Toto Acuña

    It’s got Prometheus installed, i use it to load .iso but the firmware version doesn’t mention it.
    How do i install the 6.60 OFW?
    I suppose i just need to be online and update from the psp, right?

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    You don’t need to go online and update from the psp… Do you see that picture? You have A psp 3000, so you press the first “Download now” button. Then you take the EBOOT, and put it in the PSP/GAME folder. Then, you go to XMB, go to game > memory stick, and press x

  • Claudio Frollo

    Awesome man, all done and works perfect. Cheers xD

  • Rodrigo El Toto Acuña

    Nevermind, installed it and everything works just fine.
    Thanks!

  • Valent Vincent

    it’s the PSN version and i got the fix-3 CFW from here. What went wrong? Help pls. Thank you.

    u sure nothing wrong when extracting it??

    Nope. I don’t think so. But I’m trying to get another copy in case mine is corrupted.

    Nico can you help me ? I can’t open my Vsh and recovery menu after installing 6.60 pro!
    My home button switched to the button the sound button before select button too!

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I don’t understand the second statement.

  • Marina Diaponon

    i said that my home button switched to the button the sound button before select button too! so when playing a game , to access the exit menu i need to press the sound button not the home button like a normal psp!

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    So the home button is now the sound button, right? Which button is the select button? Just find it and press this instead…

  • Marina Diaponon

    i was think it too but i never found this damn button….

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    what if you run pro update and press triangle to uninstall. After reboot run it again and reinstall it.

  • Marina Diaponon

    still doesn’t work

  • Earl Ty

    Nico can you help me because i can’t find the Version Update thing in my games

  • Maou Sama

    sorry i am noobs at these thing, i notice that old saved won’t work after updating, so it’s useless even if we backup the save data? and we need to play from the start for all game after update?
    currently i have cfw 6.60 pro b10 , do i need wifi connection in psp to update the cfw?
    does the game in psp affected/deleted after the cfw update?
    how to use/play psn in hacked psp ?

  • XAraragiX

    pro b-10 to pro c wont corrupt save if done right
    no u dont need connection just download the pro c fix 3 rar and extract the contents inside PSP/Game fodler then
    since pro c is a LCFW u will need to run fast recovery everytime u turn off your psp completely (sleep dont count)

  • Maou Sama

    well 6.60 pro b10 is using fast recovery too, at psp 3000 .

    pro b-10 to pro c wont corrupt save if done right , i don’t think it’s very hard and cause mistake from updating because i just need to download the pro c fix 3 rar and copy the pro update, and uninstall the previous cfw with triangle in pro update, then relaunch pro update and install by press x only right ?

  • XAraragiX

    yep thats basically it
    i was only thinking that u may have the pro permanent one but u just stated its 3000 series so its never permanent XD

  • coy

    Hello, i have some problem here
    im using 6.60 pro-c and now sometimes i got these problem:
    1.home button disabled but auto pressed randomly (before turn psp off)
    2.after restart psp(because cant exit with home button disabled) it cant detect iso/cso game, only eboot in psp folder and all plugin not working
    3. cant access recovery mode when turn on +R and vsh menu when press select
    strangely my psp back to normal after i turn off and leave it for 1 days or more. .but the problem always back again. .how to fix it?

    thanks

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Every time you turn off your console you have to run the FastRecovery utility to activate the CFW again.

    There is no R button recovery on pro, it’s select button.

  • coy

    oh sorry, when i check now its 6.60 only, not pro. .
    but what i remember is its 6.60 pro-c before (not sure lol *_*)
    oh and im using psp 1000 already permanent

  • XAraragiX

    try disabling all the plugins and see if that problem still there

  • coy

    i try disable plug in by deleting plug in line in vsh.txt in seplugin folder then restart, because i cant acess recovery mode and vsh menu, but still not works. .maybe i should reinstall cfw
    thx anyway

  • Maou Sama

    may i know the diffference at 6.60 pro b10 and the latest 6.60 pro cfix 3 ?
    is there any changelog i can see?

  • XAraragiX

    uhh to disable plugins u can just edit the last number on each line
    0= deactivate
    1= activate
    what about the game.text try disabling all too
    if all dont work then reinstall is the best way

  • http://www.melikesart.com Will

    Thank you. Now CIPL_Flasher has worked.

  • coy

    just to make sure :D,
    where is the game.txt? i dont find any . .
    yeah thats the last option,

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    Create one yourself ;)

  • sprite

    hey i have the same problem here. FF VIII doesnt work

  • XAraragiX

    Okay i just emailed baldassano and he suggest this
    Backup your game
    Uninstall pro cfw
    Fomat Memory Stick
    Reinstall Prp cfw
    and see if the problem persist

  • XAraragiX

    lol i never saw the changelog
    Pro cfw site already took down the link for fix 3 (i dunno the reason)
    they only link u to pro-c2 which have many bugs

  • coy

    ok thanks a lot. .ill try and post the solution ( if i got one :D )
    i forget where the cfw from, but it works fine for the last 5 month. .maybe this is some kind of soft brick?
    now its not back to normal anymore,ussualy it back to normal after 1 day. .maybe because i messed up things lol

  • teej

    Hello, I’m currently on 6.20 PRO C(permanent) and I am planning on updating to 6.60 PRO C3 fix.
    the problem is, do I need to uninstall my CFW? (I tried running PROUPDATE but it said it’s not supported by my firmware) so I am currently assuming that I immediately update my official firmware to 6.60. is it safe??

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    Just to be safe, uninstall your CFW. Try running the PROUPDATE for your firmware (the 6.20 one).

  • teej

    Ahhh! no wonder why it wasn’t working XD anyways, thanks for the tip :D I’ll look for a PROUPDATE for 6.20 right away! :D

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    It seems you were a little faster than me! xD

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    FFVIII, not FFVII ?

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    Okay, I’ll DL it to test it, but since it’s a “big” game (1,77 GB) it’ll take some time. Maybe a day or two. What exactly is the problem though? You get the same error? But first, are you on CFW 6.60 pro-C fix 3 ??

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    You sure you have Pro-C fix3? (not C2)

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    No need to get another copy Install http://code.kliu.org/hashcheck/
    Check the eboot properties if the CRC32 matches the one listed here http://renascene.com/ps1/info/61 then it’s proper PSN release.
    Make sure it’s fix3 you have and not C2.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico
  • teej

    one question though, Nico.

    as long as my firmware is 6.20, any 6.20 PROUPDATE eboots would work with mine just to uninstall the CFW?(mine’s 6.20 PRO C)

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I think any proupdate can uninstall it, but you can download 620PRO-C2 from the link i gave you so why use something else-

  • teej

    noted. thanks :D

  • teej

    thanks for the assistance, Nico! Upgrade to CFW 6.60 PRO C fix was successful!

  • teej

    Update was successful! Thanks for the assistance earlier :D

  • Ezzy Kisuke

    hi CISphil..mine are same as ur version – 5.00 m33-6…btw hw u update ur psp to cfw 6.60..?? becoz when i run EBOOT..they said THE SYS CONFIG OF THIS PSP SYSTEM DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE CORRECT. THE UPDATE CANNOT BE STARTED. CONTACT TECH SUPPORT FOR ASSISTANCE.

  • XAraragiX

    baldasano never experienced this problem
    which is amazing considering he has been in the psp scene for quite some time
    (evey time i search google on jumbled buttons error it only gives the hardware related one like open the psp and clean the thing under button -_-) (how can it be hardware if it just happen after updating)
    try reformat the memory stick just use the format options on psp settings

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    Wrong post lol

  • CISphil

    If you followed the above instructions exactly then you’ve done exactly as I’ve done. Make sure you do them in the right order and you’ve downloaded the right 6.60 patch for the PSP model you have. Can’t really help you further I’m afraid.

  • coy

    sory maybe my first problem description is too raw so its confusing,(im newb :D) now after some searching i think maybe the problem is my home button. .thats why i cant access vsh n recovery and cant detect iso because im back to 6.60 ofw when turn on psp
    (i heard if turn on+home = back to ofw?). .
    I already try as baldasano said and still no luck,then i try downgrade to 6.20 and follow above tutorial back to 6.60 pro-c. .
    now it can detect iso but home button still not working, i already install cipl_flash for permanent cfw, but when i turn it off, it always back to 6.60 ofw. .
    so ithink its the home button,but the home button is not stuck. .or maybe water spilled on it and shorten circuits,thats why sometime it back to normal(now not anymore). .i’ll try open it later. .hardware = bad ending T_T

  • XAraragiX

    Hardware = PSP Repair shop
    but i still think its too sudden though
    before updating its working just fine right??

  • coy

    yeah. .it works just fine. .
    maybe its just a coincidence lol
    i just figured one more thing. .when im in game the home button function (exit game) is moved to brightness and mute button, but brighness and mute button still work normaly

  • SRJ

    Hey there. I just updated my PSP to 6.60 PRO-C. The issue right now is that PSPdisp is not showing up on my PSP. As to my understanding, PSPdisp will not show up if I have an OFW. Is there anything else that I can do? Using PSP2006 TA-088 v2.

  • SRJ

    And by the way, my FW was 5.50 Gen-D3. As soon as I updated to 6.60 OFW, pspdisp was gone.

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    I immediately found PSPdisp v0.6 when I searched so I’m assuming that’s the latest release.

    I think the problem is that it’s outdated. Last support was 6.35, if what I read was right.

  • SRJ

    Yep. I’m using PSPdisp v0.6.. Outdated, huh? Dang. So the PSPdisp wouldn’t work on the 6.60 versions? Should I downgrade?

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    It doesn’t show up in OFW, right? Does it show up in CFW ??
    Cause AFAIK, there is no use with the OFW anyway. Just the CFW

  • SRJ

    I’m a bit of a noob at these stuffs. Is 5.50 Gen D3 a CFW? I had 5.50 Gen D3 PSP when I added PSPdisp, then upon updating to 6.60 PRO-C, it’s not showing up anymore.

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    Yes, 5.50 Gen is CFW…
    This is a little weird though. I’m on 6.60 Pro-C, and it does show up. Did you check if it was deleted accidentally? But in anyway, try to put it again… It’s a little too obvious to be the reason, but you never know lol xD

  • SRJ

    Nah. It’s in there. Tried it multiple times. Been here for 4 straight hours. XD

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Games work?

  • SRJ

    Yes. Games are working just fine. Now it’s showing me Corrupted data after I uninstalled-reinstalled Pro-C.

    *Edit. Corrupted data wasn’t PSPDisp. Not sure what that was.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Try reinstalling latest version, it should work. http://jjs.at/software/pspdisp.html#download

  • SRJ

    Yeah. I agree with you. It should. But it’s not. LOL. Will the mac address be a factor? Mine’s MODEL:0.2g.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    i don’t think so, you said it shows as corrupted data so you can’t even launch PSPdisp right? that’s the problem then. Delete the PSPdisp folder and reinstall it. not sure what else to suggest.

  • SRJ

    Welll. It seems that the PSPdisp was supposed to go the exact GAME folder not on the GAME5XX or what not as what instruction 4 tells me. Though I did follow the instructions without knowing what KERNEL is. So probably it’s me after all. Anyway, it’s working now. Stupid me.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Oh dear haha! forget that “GAME5XX” folder from now on put all homebrew on the “GAME” folder =D

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    I’m guessing you have either 5.50 GEN or 5.50 Prometheus? If yes, then follow the last part of the tutorial – it should work.

  • Oktavius Cool

    So can u help me? Bcause i can’t upgrade to official 6.60, always say data corrupted IDXFFFFFFFF, i really want to upgrade it to 6.60 fix C… :(

  • gabawesomeeeee

    I have the same PSP as yours, 3000 except with 6.20 Pro B-10. I went straight to update, then followed the next steps. It worked out for me fine.

  • ♥Jai♥

    I got 6.60 pro B9 on my PSP, my original version of my psp is 6.60 psp 3000 and, im curious in the 2nd Step, I really need to download Update 6.60 or not? or just uninstall pro B9 by pressing triangle on it. then put the pro c fix 3 on my psp ? I dont have fast recovery and cpl_flash since i got the cfw pro b-9 :o

  • Lelouch511000

    hahaha! Thanks nico-san!!!
    I have 6.60pro cfix now :D

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    Nope, you don’t need to download the 6.60 UPDATE file, just the PRO C fix3…

    If you don’t have those two files ever since you got PRO B9, I’m assuming you have a perfectly hackable PSP.

  • ♥Jai♥

    Yehey ! thnx alot! :*

  • Oktavius Cool

    Nice, but why i always ended with data corrupt and IDXFFFFFFFF, it’s so frustrating, bcause i just bought it and get 6.20 Pro C.. :(

    “In case you have Prometheus 5.50 installed:
    If you have Prometheus 5.50 installed and you can’t update to 6.60
    because you see a message saying you already have the latest firmware
    then do this:
    Press select on your psp then change usb device to flash 0.
    Connect your psp on your computer go to vsh folder.
    Go to etc folder and open version txt.
    Change release from 9.90 to 5.50 and save.”

    Go do that. That’s what I did when I switched from Prometheus to PRO.

  • kentoy

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    Hmmm…. I really ain’t a pro in this kind of thing, I just followed some tutorial back then.

    Hi, I have a PSP 1000 and currently, my Official firmware version is 6.60. I seem to be doing fine up to Step 5, but when I select the Pro Update, my PSP starts the update, but freezes, and then just shuts down without restarting. The screen from step 6 never appears either. This is currently my first time trying custom firmware (Meaning my first attempt at installing and using ) Is this a common problem? or am I shit out of luck?

  • Jan Daryll Palanca

    Maybe your updating the wrong pro cfw? Better check again, if you have the 6.60 pro cfw before installing! I’m amazed you didn’t brick your PSP after crashed.

    I think I said this before, but try to follow the last part of the tutorial – that is to try and connect your PSP to a PC whilst the USB Mode is flash0. There should be a version.txt there. Edit 9.90 to 5.50.

  • kentoy

    yes i fallow that and its work. . i mean when downgrade my psp to OFW version 5.50 and its back in original version.., and then when i try to update to 6.60 thats what he say, i dont know whats going crazy into my psp. please friend help me. or maybe i have to install any firmware CFW. to my psp?. and after that when i lunch other file . its “say the game cannot play” it is because i downgrade to the original firmware and when i selece there is no recovery. its totally back to the main version.” AM GOING CRAZY”

  • KillingEdge

    right?

  • Yazan Markabi

    same error happens,
    i think i should install 6.6 official now form PSP > Setting > System Update.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Wrong, first update to official 6.60.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Either that or follow the guide.

    Please help,
    i updated to 6.6, it was ok
    i installed Pro-C fix 3, was ok
    tested FastRecovory also was ok
    but when i run CIPL_Flasher my psp no longer worked.

    it keep having black screen when i run it, i remove battery and put again, turn on also black screen only.
    i can access menu which open with L + R but what can i do to restore it without
    CIPL_Flasher? because CIPL_Flasher caused the problem.

  • Yazan Markabi

    i also can access menu which appear by holding Select.
    but what to do to recover system without CIPL_Flasher?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Not all PSP support CIPL_Flasher, use fast recovery instead.

  • Yazan Markabi

    but i don’t get menu which allow me see Photos, Videos, Games, ..etc so i can’t do anything. only L + R and holding Select both with black screen.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    You must have plugins of your old 6.35 firmware enabled, delete seplugins folder.

    Hi i am a noob about ths, i have my firmware,

    5.03 GEN-C(full)

    does this work on my psp properly,
    my firmware last updated 6 years ago TROLololol

  • Vincent Reyes

    can i have a permanent patch if my psp is 3000???

  • shen

    after updating to 6.60 the pro update and the other files on my psp appears as “corrupted data”. can you help me… T_T.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    No.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    That’s ancient. It will work read the post carefully.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Make sure proupdate is on the right folder.

  • shen

    i put it under game then under update… but after that it still appears as corrupted data and i also formatted my psp but it still did not work. help me…

  • shen

    what do i do… can u help me nico…

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    As i told you wrong location. The guide says:
    E:PSPGAMEPROUPDATE

    And you are doing:
    E:PSPGAMEUPDATEPROUPDATE

    That’s why it says corrupt data.

    Only official firmware goes to update folder, not CFW.

    Excus me..but when i try to place game on my psp ISO folder(ISO AND CSO game) it start to transfer and then stops and says:”the ISO folder is no longer located in E/:, VERIFY this location” help!!!
    p.s my psp’s MAC Adrees is :”model 02g” is that suppose to be?
    i did everthing u said as you said
    help!

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Hmm faulty USB cable probably try with another one.

  • khan

    thank u so much for replying
    but these kind of usb cable are rare
    and i only got one
    but i never tried transfering it directly to the memory stick without using the USB
    so i might try that ans see

    the USB tranfers music fine
    sometimes

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Alternatively you could try switching USB posts (the ones in the back of the case being more reliable).
    And format the memory stick with the PSP go to settings->system settings->format memory stick.
    it will erase everything and give the stick proper format. Backup your stuff first (if any) and after that you’ll have to copy the CFW files again to the PSP.

  • khan

    Thank you :)
    i alredy did that, i downloaded naruto ultimate ninja imapct
    but when i click it, it starts, then the screen goes blank

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    And what CFW you have?

  • khan

    it says “6.60 pro-c””
    Mac adress’
    : “Model 02g”
    i jus tried playing the game agen and it said “the game could not be started(GED2204 8-8-8-8)

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Gmm dunno have you installed pro with proupdate first?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I don’t know much about psp’s on those conditions. Have you tried this:

    “Your problem sounds like this: http://www.dashhacks.com/psp/psp-hacks/psp-3000-ta-095-9g-upgrader-for-620.html

    The download link doesn’t work but this does http://dl.qj.net/psp/homebrew-applications/psp-3000-ta-095-9g-upgrader-for-620.html

    I don’t know if that will work though.”

  • Anonymous

    Nico i Have a problem when i update to 6.60 Pro it just freeze. i followed the guide right

  • Dennis

    yes. i did follow every step in there. I’m just confuse because it says it’s possible to make it permanent if you’re using a PSP 1000/2000 and mine is a PSP 2003, which is a 2000 series. :|

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I thought so too. Maybe it doesn’t work for all 2000′s models there are many of them, many different motherboards.
    Look: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/PSP/Motherboards
    TA-088v3 Motherboard can’t use cIPL, Maybe that’s what you have.

  • Dennis

    Thanks for the reply and info. :D

  • Dennis

    Nico, I saw this 6.60-Pro-C2, do you know it? Is it safe to use?

  • Guest

    Hello Nico,

    I have a slight problem and I was wondering if you could help.

    I wanna play some PSP games that are Eboot.pbp but for some reason I can’t anymore, I already have CFW installed and everything I can play PSP Iso’s and PSX 1 games just fine.

    I’ve got a PSP 3000 Version 6.60 now but I’m not sure if it was because I updated to firmware 6.60 (I had an older version before forgot which one) and Eboots worked like a charm but I didn’t have CFW back then.

    Reason for this is because some Eboot.pbp games that I’ve got are less heavy than the actual Iso’s such as DBZ Tag Team the Iso is 1.27 GB big and the Eboot is 607 MB but at the same time I have a GBA Emulator that I wanna keep if possible.

    So in other words I wanna be able to play Eboots,Isos and Emulators.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Icefrogmentation

    Hi, I followed all the steps on how to update the firmware to 6.60 but I cant update it, it shows as corrupted data…

    I have psp 1000 , 5.50 Prome-4

    I already also changed the release date from 9.90 to 5.50 from the txt file on the vsh folder.

    Please help, it’s been so long after the last time I used my psp lol, thanks.

  • kentoy

    I WILL try .nico and tnx allot you doing

  • Roger Nicod

    If your getting that corrupted data showing up then all you need to do is either download PSP Tool and make a magic memory stick to install OFW then go forward to install 6.60 OFW. I’ve never used 5.50 Prome-4 lol. I’m still on a outdated 5.00M33-6….

    some people are genuine and believe in helping others out …. you are of them …. thanks a lot ………:)……….

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    If it doesn’t work then the model doesn’t support it.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    If it’s already 6.60 then start from “Installing Custom Firmware PRO-C (fix 3)”

    hello sir Nico, i have 5.50 prome -4 CFW, and i want to upgrade to 6.60 Pro -C… so that means i change only the version txt in vsh folder? little confuse here and this is my first time to change my CFW,

  • Dzunja Bien A. Balan

    Nico bro, there’s a problem with my friend’s psp. After updating it from 5.50 prome 4 to 6.60 PRO C (Fix 3), game’s not working anymore. They crash after the PSP logo. Then I checked his plug-ins, disabled the cwcheat… the game’s working again. We tried different versions of cwcheat (including your cwcheat plug-in), but we failed. I know cheating is bad, but this guy can’t live without cheating, LOL. Do you have any idea how to run the games in 6.60 PRO C (Fix 3) w/ cwcheat enabled without crashing?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    after that start from the begginging of the guide

  • Dylan Kenneth Shea

    Hello Nico I have a question is it possible to avoid losing my save data by putting it in my computer? Will it still work after updating it? Many thanks.

  • Alpha

    Thank you. I was looking everywhere for this and most of the guides kinda confused me. this was very simple and fast :D Ty

  • Andy

    i have a first gen 2000.i had M5 gen 3 permenantly flashed on it bevore i wen to 6.60. now with 6.60 pro c fix 3..allot of things dont work,the snes emulator doesnt work,the gba emulator doesnt work,translated roms dont work.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Depends on how old was your CFW. i don’t think it will work if you have 5.xx, but 6.20, 6.39 savedata might work..haven’t tested it.

  • Dylan Kenneth Shea

    Where can I find my CFW?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    If you update the firmware can’t keep using programs that worked on the old CFW you have to get emulators that work on 6.60
    http://www.nicoblog-games.com/emulators/
    And what do you mean by translated roms?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Give the article a read…..

  • Andy

    The japanese games like gundam that god a english patch.

    also the snes emulator wants to exit(popup) straight away when im in the emulator.i try to cancel,but it keeps the popup asking to shut down,if i chose shut down,my psp frezes.

    The GBA emulator has ghrapical glitches and doesnt run any rom..or atleast doesnt show it running.

  • Animegirl1993

    If you have a PSP 3000, will you have to find the custom firmware PRO-C for PSP 3000?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    I don’t know what you mean =(
    All you need is provided on the post.

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    Uhh… I’m guessing you’re thinking that there’s a specific “PRO-C” you must use for 3000 only? If so, then no. Just run the PROUPDATE and use fastrecovery once you turn on your PSP after a shut down and all will be fine I guess.

  • Animegirl1993

    I got it nevermind :P

  • jhethro

    On your psp, press SELECT. .then navigate to USB DEVICE and change to MEM STIC to Flash 0. thats it. when you connect your PSP to in a PC. VSN folder will appear then follow the rest on the about post

  • qwerty

    Can i use card reader ?

  • Cyle Joshua E. Viray

    yeah mine is a 6.20 GOD VI but when i reset the device it needs a recovery thingy…
    can i put the update when the GOD VI is inactive….

  • Wolfzen

    Not sure what you mean exactly, but I *believe* you can.
    I have a laptop with an SD card reader so I don’t really know….

  • Wolfzen

    I don’t even know what language that is….

  • Wolfzen

    I looked and your name and thought it was Yuma for some reason….
    ….
    …You must join the Nicoblog Army…. For you are worthy….

  • Wolfzen

    You can downgrade to 6.20 of the OFW, but you can’t play specific games….
    Like Nico said below, no if you want to play all the current and new games….

  • Wolfzen

    No idea.
    Let’s pray that someone else can fix it…. *hands together, kneeling*

  • Satoshi Kyouma

    it’s tagalog…..a language for Filipinos……
    wata is a Filipino too so…….
    deal with it..

  • qwerty

    thank you i did it men

  • Garuda357

    Maybe he’s asking if he can use a Pro Duo card reader on the PSP, yes you can, I use one.

  • Garuda357

    I Think it is better to have a soft mod CFW than a permanent patch, anyway why would you like to turn off the console? just put it on sleep mode…

  • Wolfzen

    Sometimes it happens Garuda…like when a game glitches or you want to safe power~

  • Wolfzen

    :D Hooray! Congrats! :D

  • Wolfzen

    I’m confused now. I think my cousin has one, but I don’t know if we’re talking about the same thing.

  • Wolfzen

    I’m Wolfadian. Nya~

  • Garuda357

    Yes that’s true, that’s why you would prefer a soft mod than a perma mod, because the console restart clean.

  • Wolfzen

    O.O STOP CONTRADICTING ME!!!
    RAWR!!!

  • Igor Aji Prakoso

    can I done this in PPSSPP ?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    No. You need this only if you have a PSP.

    is this like the best CFW up to date?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    it is to me that’s why i recommend it.

  • Cyrell Magtagñob

    Hey my games wont display when I updated it to ver 6.60 and I cant install the cfw because of it

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    The games will show up again when you install the CFW, you don’t need the games to install the CFW now just follow the steps of the guide more closely.

  • Cyrell Magtagñob

    Oh thank you it works but last time the proupdated didint show up so I formated it and there it is.

  • Guest

    Thanks a lot for the guide, I was a bit apprehensive to install custom firmware onto my PSP but it all went off without a hitch. Just wanted to clear two things up:

    1 – From what I gather, even though you need to run FastRecovery every time you turn on the console, this actually installs PRO onto your system (although it stays inactive before you run FastRecovery), but you can still reverse the procedure by running PROUPDATE again and pressing triangle, right?

    2 – “Your old saved progress in games might not work after updating.” – This only applies to people updating from a previously installed CFM, right?

    So with a new memory card that doesn’t have anything on it, should I create the file extensions? I can copy them from an older memory card but not include any other data like saved games or pictures. Or maybe I need the psp to format it? Very unsure but thank you for your time in advance.

  • Steven

    For some reason when I formatted my new memory card and tried to connect it to my pc it didn’t accept it as a viable destination. I can make the “UPDATE” destination in the GAMES folder but I’m unable to put the EBoot file in it.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Try formatting the stick with your PSP.

  • suhendro

    can i install permanently the 6.60 pro C on psp 3000?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Nope.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Added mirrrors.

  • suhendro

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    All 1000 and some 2000 depends on the motherboard.

  • suhendro

    i don’t get it T_T what kind of motherboard u talking about ?

  • Edward Andipratama

    If I had 6.39 with other cfw (ME9) and I want to make it into pro cfw *no need to upgrade it since psp 1000 only supported up to 6.39 as far as I know, the I just need to install the pro cfw (overwrite it without think just copy paste the cfw and run it) or I need to setting it all over from start? I really scared to taking any risk before I know it for sure

  • Hung Xu

    I have PSP 1000 too and I just update it to 6.60 pro C2 from 6.39 pro B8 just fine. PSP 1000 can support anything.Just follow the whole guide, update to offical 6.60, install 6.60 pro C, install permanent patch CIPL_Flasher

  • ZeheartEX

    sorry wrong section to post :P

  • Mark Wintersmith

    I got a really old custom firmware, It’s Prometheus 5.00 should I follow the guide same as before or should I do something Different?

  • Fatih Abdurrahman

    is that something weong with it.
    sorry for bad english

  • suhendro

  • Edward Andipratama

    ok I’ll try, but my old save from 6.39 can be corrupt right? Probably I need taking the risk
    edit : Am I need to follow the prometheus method to change the version.txt or just install the ofw?
    edit 2 : It’s done, thanks for your advice to reassuring me Hung Xu :)

  • Ale

  • Boromir Thefreeman

    Ok

  • Nachtus

    They have new builds on their googlecode page I believe. I think they are nightly though.

  • Rey Adiguna

    Hola Nico, i don’t have a problem follow all your guide until when i running pro-update. it’s success, but when in main menu, all the d-pad and button is not work. when i restarted again, it worked, and when retry to running pro-update or fast recovery, it not worked again. please help me ^^

  • Rey Adiguna

    Nico, one more thing, your MAC address is 05g & 09g, I,ve also 0,5g, but now is (before update to cfw): 0C:EE:E6:7C:B7:52. Is it weird? thanks ^^

  • Guest

    can’t find the guide for updating versions…
    Have a psp w 6.39 version [unmodded]
    What work do I have to do to upgrade to 6.60 so I can mod using this guide?
    Can’t find any info

  • Georgi

    Hey, Nico. I currently have Prometheus ISO Loader in GAME and my PSP is version “6.31 PRO”(after activating it from some kind of chinese game), does that mean that I have Prometheus 5.50 CFW installed? Shall I edit the “version.txt” before moving on? I am unsure what to do as I just got the PSP. Would you please advise? Much appreciated. ^^

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    The CFW hides it.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    C2 is bugged it can’t play official PSN games it is not recommended, this is the last “good” build.

  • Rodolfo Reynaud Rodriguez

    Hi i have two psp slim with custom firmware the m33, one with 5.00, and the other with 3, how i can to update to this formware, if i uptdate to this formware, all the homebrew, ems, posone to psp games that i have converted or downloaded and isos that i have and running well in my psps now can still be running in the psp with this update, i want to update because all my new psp physicall games the newones cant run iin this psps, i hope can help me with this, thanx in advance

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Run the official 6.60 updater and see what it tells you.

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Things that worled on prome/m33 might not work on PRO.
    PRO needs clean games while prome needed to “fix” the isos to play them.
    All the games on this site are clean and work on PRO.

  • Jan Daryll Palanca

    Nico I have a quick question, do you know what’s the difference between PRO-C fix 3 and PROMOD-C?
    I just noticed that’s the cfw that I updated with.. …and not PRO-C fix 3! Plus I can’t seem to find that cfw for 6.20! (PRO-C fix 3 I mean..)
    Note: it says here, it’s a lcfw or light custom firmware which I am fully aware what is about since I own a 3000 model. My question is, if this is the right cfw that I should be using right now or should I install a different one that doesn’t say PROMOD-C on my PSP’s system software..

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    PROMOD was not released by PRO Team it’s a fan made mod. If it works fine for you then stay with it.

  • Rye Yi Fan

    Nico, quick question here.. my system says this message..
    “Sorry, this program doesn’t support your FW” followed by an error code.

    What should I do.. my firmware is 6.39 PRO-B7.. cannot play TYPE-0 with this.. please help..

  • kris

    nico, I’ve download the EBOOT.PBP but it says corrupted data when I want to install. Hows that ?

  • kentoy

    hey.. nico..thank you very much…, now i update my psp 1000 to 6.60., it was a long months to solve my this problem.

  • Georgi

    Everything is smooth now. Got 6.60 PRO-C. Big time thanks!!

  • Jan Daryll Palanca

    Just a quick favor Nico ~ do you by any chance have seen/found a PRO-C fix 3 for the 3000 model with 6.20 ofw? I’ve been through the official code.Google site and i found nothing except for their recent release (which you mentioned doesn’t work well with psn games..) the PRO-C2.
    I really hope you can find one..I’m afraid this installed cfw might give permanent damage to my PSP since it’s probably the first non-fixed version..

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xXMatsumiXx coolwaterinaglass

    solidfiles(dot)com/d/90f6bad1c4/620PRO-C.fix3.rar

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    it’s not on the correct location, check that the location matches the one on the guide.

  • Rye Yi Fan

    I’m on OFW now.. 6.60.. then tried to install CFW 6.60 PRO C as indicated above.. whenever the installer runs and prompts me to press “X” it restarts saying it is booting in CFW, it automatically goes into black screen and turns the PSP off..

    any suggestions?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Hmm try formatting the memory stick with the PSP and try to install the CFW again, if you have another memory stick you can try with it too.

  • Jan Daryll Palanca

    Thanks! Is this applicable to PSP 3000?

  • greyheart

    i got the same problem, and yes, i placed it in the right place, please help

  • Saufi TohoinIkuto

    I just finished updating my PSP and this works just fine! Thank you very much!

  • Saufi TohoinIkuto

    so its working? what is ur psp model?

  • Isaac Boyes Mora Omega

    hi! I have a question, my PSP is 6.20 PRO-B9. I have games and emulators installed in my PSP, let’s say I want to install this CFW in my PSP, I will be able to use my games and emulators with this up to date CFW?

  • karu_maikeru

    chances are some files may be corrupted .. but that chance is very low~

  • Rav3nLun4tic

    There is one thing that I don’t see answered so I’ll ask. If my PSP runs out of battery, do I need to run fast recovery or will it still have the CFW when I plug it in and turn it back on?

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    Usually the PSP doesn’t totally turn off when it runs out of battery. it just turns off the display and controls and waits for you to plug it in to resume your game, if that’s the case you won’t need to re-enable the CFW.
    If you physically remove the battery then you’ll need to re-enable it when you turn it on.

  • Rav3nLun4tic

    Alright, thanks Nico. Ran the PROUPDATE eboot to remove my current CFW and received the error “Sorry, this program doesn’t support your FW(0×06020010).” Any idea what’s going on? PSP Go Model 05g, running 6.20 PRO-B8
    Nevermind, I found the solution. I had to run the permanent patch for 6.20 and uninstall that, then run the 6.20 update and uninstall that, then follow the steps of this guide.

  • Nachtus

    On the regular download page, yes. However, if you go to the Wiki section to NightlyBuilds, you can get the latest compiled build. These have all the latest bug fixes, including the one the prevented the usage of PSN games.I tested it on my Go, and I can confirm it works with no issues.

  • ZeheartEX

    I have found that pro-c fix 3 doesn’t play my psone eboots. What do?

  • Andy Boe

    where is the newest? 6.60 PRO C_fix3 or 6.60 PRO C2 ? thx..

  • Bleu Rabbite

    Anyone had tested on psp-go and working?

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    It’s a 3000. You should be able to install CFW ;)

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    Are you sure it’s pro-C fix 3? Because fix 3 is the one that was supposed to play the PSOne eboots. I can play them fine. fist of all, do they show up ? If they don’t show up, or you see corrupted files, this means that something’s wrong with the eboot. Like maybe you put the game folder inside another folder. What exactly happens?

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    You mean the Proupdate and the others? There should be a folder called PSP inside the memory stick. inside that folder, create a folder called GAME and put the 3 folders there.

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    Create backups of the files just in case. If something happens to one of the files in the PSP, replace it with the backup file.

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    Update to 6.60 Pro-C fix 3

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/ChromeJailer ChromeJailer

    The newest is 6.60 Pro-C2, but 6.60 Pro-C fix 3 is kind of better.

  • Sukhdev

    Its working, I tested it out today.

  • Sukhdev

    I can’t seem to get games to work. Can anyone help me out? I drop the ISO files into the PSP/Game folder, but games either show up corrupt or do not show up at all

  • http://www.nicoblog-games.com/ Nico

    The iso don’t go into the game folder.
    Create a new folder on the root of your memory stick name it “ISO” and copy the isos in there.

  • Sukhdev

    Thanks, it worked

  • Reversi

    The least you could do is clarify your problem. Be more specific like what game are you playing (though I probably assume that’s FF Type-0). My only guess is that the problem is not CFW related (6.60 is already the latest PSP firmware), but game related.

  • Raziel Nephilim

    First, i appreciate all this. It’s good to know the PSP comunity is still alive and well. I have a question: my psp has the 6.39 me-9.2 firmware. How do i update it? Thanks in advance :)

    Yes you can update it (Mine is 3000 too), just follow the step carefully so you don’t brick your PSP.

  • http://skywindmusic.blogspot.com/ skywind08

    It’s right there in the guide, just read all of them started from:

    If you have a version of PRO older than 6.60 run PROUPDATE and press triangle to uninstall it. (PROUPDATE is included with 6.60 PRO-C Fix3 download)

    I’m sorry this might be a stupid question
    But do i need to install my psp to 6.60 version first?
    It only says to launch it in the guide
    Or do I need to just launch it [not install] then do the ” install pro cfw on your PSP ” guide?

    Sorry I’m newbie to this kind of thing.

    Thanks for the attention.
