Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Slim (PSP-2000) Console
I upgraded my PSP to OFW 5.02 and it seems I can't play my games saved on my memory stick duo...
I'm new to upgrading firmware and I never knew that there's a custom firmware..
what's the difference between Custom Firmware and Official Firmware??
can i possibly upgrade to Custom Firmware 5.02 M33(if there's any) from my Official Firmware 5.02??
coz I want to play my games...
hoping for someone who could answer my problem... thanks..
Dude this is so simple trust me I am also a newbie to the whole cfw thing.
now all you need to do is download the cfw from www.pspslimhacks.com or dashhacks or even google pro cfw psp.but pro cfw is kinda the best cauz it gives you a step by step instalation .also if you want you can get 5.50 gen-d or something you can go to system update on psp and update to 5.50.then google 5.50 gen d.
ofw cant play iso or cso my suggestion get cfw.you can get free games and emulaters!!![apps]

honestly, you might have screwed yourself over w/ that update. the reason sony updates their firmware is to try to lock hackers out of modding their device. i'm really not sure how long 4.1 has been out or whether it's been hacked or not (i stopped keeping up w/ that since i last updated my custom fw to 3 point 8 or 9, i forgot...). you'll have to check w/ a liable source such as psp.qj.net to see if it has been hacked or not. also there is some new unbricking/downgrading battery called the pandora battery or something like that. i downgraded way before that came out, so i really now nothing about, although i can tell you that it is confirmed that they do work, but beware of fakes, especially on ebay

If you want to upgrade, you must downgrade first. Any custom firmware upgrade cannot take place unless your PSP is firmware 1.5 or lower.
Chances are that you have a different firmware. If you want to get a custom firmware and downgrade, it is a very complex process that I do NOT recommend if you do not know what you are doing. It is very easy to ruin your PSP during the process. If you are still interested, research "Pandora's Battery" and other downgraders. It is a very long process too long to be explained here, and there are many guides online.
If you miraculously have a PSP that is firmware 1.5, I recommend getting firmware 5.00 m33-4 instead, as it is much more stable. Don't attempt anything unless you understand the consequences of possibly ruining your PSP.
Sorry if I scared you...
