I think you are trying to install a CFW update on an OFW PSP. Just rename 401.PBP to EBOOT.PBP and get rid of the other EBOOT.PBP.

I was adding a game in my psp version 6.60, but when i opened the games in memory stick, there was no game, just a message came "There is no games...". I failed to find its proper solution so please help...


I had this problem (same firmware), and this is what I did. It works a treat. You need to downgrade from OFW (Official Firmware) 6.60 to 6.20, and then install CFW (Custom Firmware) 6.20. This guide shows you how to downgrade and gives you the program to do it:

http://pspslimhacks.com/6-xx-downgrader-v4-released/

Here is the 6.20 official firmware:
http://www.mediafire.com/?6kj00wdwe8nwfzp

When both of those have been downloaded, extract them to X:\PSP\GAME, where X is the drive your PSP is in.
Disconnect your PSP and turn it on. Then go to your memory under the Game section on the XMB. Run the downgrader (you need at least 75% battery, otherwise the program will kick you off). When the update's at about 85%-90% you may get an error, but don't worry about it. After it's installed, it should boot and show you a blue screen. Press circle. When you load up again, feel free to delete the update files from your memory stick. Then reconnect your PSP.
Now that you've downgraded to 6.20, you'll be able to permanently mod your PSP with custom firmware.
Download this and extract the folders to the root of your PSP (don't worry about overwriting; the folders merge):
https://code.google.com/p/procfw/downloads/detail?name=620PRO-C2.rar&can=2&q=#makechanges
Disconnect your PSP again and head to the memory stick section under Game in the XMB. Run the Pro Update program.
Your system should reboot.
Go back to Game > Memory Stick Utility, and then click on the permanent patch. It'll ask you if you want to install the patch. Press X.
It'll tell you that it's saved a file. Run it on the fake vshmain.prx. Connect your PSP to your computer and copy the file (vshorig.prx) to your desktop. If your PSP bricks (unlikely), putting that file back on should unbrick it.
After that, run the permanent patch again on your PSP but this time press circle to go past saving the file and install the custom firmware.
Now, if you're trying to put PSP ISO files on your console, you need to create a folder called "ISO" without quotation marks in the root of your PSP. When you download a PSP ISO, they go in this folder.
If you want to play PS1 games on your PSP, you'll need to create EBOOT files from the disc images you download. Just follow this tutorial and you should be fine.

HOW TO UPFRADE THE PSP?


Hello. It is very simple do to this. You should only follow my steps:

First of all, you have to download a file name called EBOOT.PBP (psp upgrade) which is located HERE
Save it on your desktop and do not rename the file.
Plug in your USB cable and go to your PSP's System Settings and on the second from the top press X on USB CONNECT. Go to "My Computer" and click on Removable disk. Here it should be a folder named PSP followed by a subfolder called GAME. Enter this folder, create a new folder and name it UPDATE (in caps without spaces). In the folder you have just created, move (copy - paste) EBOOT.PBP here from your desktop. Also, if there is no GAME folder, you have to create it in the folder "PSP". Be carefully! Remove your hardware and fully charge your PSP and plug it on the wall. Go to Games Area and choose Memory Stick by pressing X. You will see now PSP Update version
*. **. Press PSP Update version *. ** (it will only clear your screen for a couple seconds). Press Start if you want to upgrade. Go to User Agreement and start the upgrade process. While it's started, do not touch your PSP. Leave it somewhere until the upgrade is done.

I hope I helped you!

Runescape on my psp


freewebs. com/ roshanb/ runescapeonpsp.htm helps(take out spaces)

Latest CFWEnabler : 05/07/2009
Download:
http://2f19b96d.seriousfiles.com

Changelog:

- Fixed a bug when playing within Infraestructure
- New system version
- Improved the Pops flashing system
- New update server.

Just copy the CFWEnabler folder into /PSP/GAME , then go to Games and run the installer

1)INSTALLING 5.03 OFFICIAL AND LOADING CHICKHEN R2



a)INSTALLING 5.03 OFFICIAL

Firstly, you CANNOT do this unless you hava a PSP with Version =<5.03 . To check your PSP FW go to Settings-> SystemSettings-> System Information . If the version is 5.03 , skip thispart and follow the guide below to install ChickHEN . If you have alower version follow this GUIDE in order to install OFW 5.03 .

-Download 5.03 OFW (http://135ff34d.seriousfiles.com)
-Connect your PSP to your PC via USB and create a folder in PSP/GAME named UPDATE.
-Copy the .EBOOT file in PSP/GAME/UPDATE.
-Run the update from your PSP .
Now you should have a 5.03 OFW PSP , just what you need in order to load the Tiff Exploit.

b)LOADING CHICKHEN R2

Some useful tips for those who can't get the ChickHEN to work :

-Restore Default Settings
-Set UMD Auto Start and Cache OFF.
-Make sure you're on 5.03 OFW
-Format Memory Stick. ( this will erase all the data from your MSso you'd better backup your files on your PC before doing it )

-Try another method as this video shows :
(http://ad452dd7.linkbucks.com)
-Don't give up , just try and be patient.

Note that the files needed for PSP 2000 and 3000 series are different than the ones needed for PSP 1000 so don't screw it up.

Note that the files needed for PSP 2000 and 3000 series are different than the ones needed for PSP 1000 so don't screw it up.

DOWNLOAD:
FOR PSP SLIM ( 2000 & 3000 ) :

-Download ChickHEN R2 Easy to Load
(http://0639570b.thesefiles.com)

FOR CLASSIC PSP ( 1000 ) :

-Download ChickHEN R2 Easy to load
(http://d249d993.thesefiles.com)

-Copy h.bin to the Memory Stick ROOT .
-Copy ChickHEN folder to PSP/PHOTO ( create one if needed )
-Navigate to your PHOTOS folder , and enter the ChickHEN folder.And wait, you will see some images, these will start to loadthumbnails.Go all the way down to the last image. Your PSP may freezeand reset. Just keep retrying and ChickHEN R2 will load up….But if yousee flashing colors, your PSP will reboot loading the ChickHEN.

For those who can't load the ChickHEN files check above for useful tips and remember to restore default settings.

Check your PSP's version to make sure. If the version is somethinglike 5.03 ChickHEN R2 you should be fine and ready to install CFW.

2)INSTALLING CUSTOM FIRMWARE

Do NOT try this on any PSP 3000 or PSP 2000 unhackable mobo's this is only for PSP Phat and 2000 hackable series.
This will permanently install CFW onto your PSP
ChickHEN must be enabled.

-Download Recovery Flasher 1.60
(http://926291d9.thesefiles.com)
-Download 5.0 OFW
(http://a3b04c08.thesefiles.com) -direct download
-Copy the Recovery folder to PSP/GAME .
-Also copy the 5.0 official update renamed as 500.pbp to PSP/GAME/RECOVERY folder .
-Go to GAME and run the program and install 5.0 M33-6 !

In the end , press SELECT while in XMB and change UMD Iso Mode to''M33 Driver'' or ''Sony NP9660''. I also recommend formatting memorystick. Place your CSO/ISO games to the ISO folder on your memory stickroot.

You just connect the psp to your computer using a usb cable.Then create a folder in your Memory Stick Duo named “PSP“, under this folder, create a sub-folder named “GAME“, under this sub-folder, create another sub-folder named “UPDATE” (Note: all folders name must be CAPITALIZED).Download the PSP 5.51 update file via this link: http://du01.psp.update.playstation.org/update/psp/image/us/2009_0611_148d2a024741df54eacabbc79d9f3014/EBOOT.PBP.Save the file as “EBOOT.PBP” to your desktop then inside the UPDATE folder copy the EBOOT.PBP.Then go to games>memory stick and hit the x button there should be an game press x again to upgrade.The udpate process will take about 10 minutes.Thats all.

Can i play eboot.pbp on psp?


yes you can if you have a custom firmware. the psp will not recognize the eboot file itself unless you put the eboot file inside of a folder with the name of the game as the folder name. then you save it to psp/game. iso and cso files are placed in the iso folder of the root.
