If you have internet on your psp goto the left all the way and then go all the way up and there should be a update icon in your settings icon.

If this does not work you can download the update via sony's website and put it onto you memory card via usb from the computer and then update that way.

If you found this awnser useful please give a thumbs up or even better write a Testimonial.

How can i upgrade my psp2001 5.50prome-4 to 6.20?


How to Update PSP to Firmware Ver 6.20

It's easy to update/upgrade the Playstation Portable (PSP) 3000 system software to firmware version 6.20. There are two ways to do a PSP 6.20update - regular file download and network update. We did an update on our pink PSP 3000 using the network update procedure since our place has wifi.
Why did we choose network update in updating our PSP firmware to ver 6.20? It's much simpler. Here is a quick tutorial on how to carry out PSP 6.20 update using Network Update (Method 1):
  1. Go to Network Settings to configure your PSP WLAN by setting up an access point.
  2. Under Network Settings, it would be best to choose Automatic to simplify the process. Your PSP console will search for any wireless network available nearby.
  3. To Update System Software to the latest 6.20 firmware version, Go to Network Update. Be sure your battery is full because the update will fail if you turn off you PSP console or if the unit shuts down due to lack of battery power.
Method 2: Download File To Update PSP 6.20 Firmware Using a PC. If you prefer to update your console using the download method, here are the simple steps in doing this:

How 2 upgrade


It depends what firmware you are trying to upgrade to. If you want to install custom firmware on your PSP, check this YouTube channel:
http://www.youtube.com/user/ubeenstryked
If you want to install official firmware, you can find a list of downloads here: http://downloads.exophase.com/category/psp-official-firmware/
When you select the firmware you want to install, download it. You will get a .zip file with a file inside called EBOOT.PBP. Follow these steps to update:
1.) Connect your PSP to your PC. 2.) Open the PSP folder and then the GAME folder. 3.) Right click INSIDE the GAME folder, and click New Folder 4.) Name the new folder UPDATE 5.) Place the EBOOT.PBP file you downloaded into the UPDATE folder. 6.) Disconnect your PSP from your computer, and select the MEMORY STICK ICON in the GAME section. 7.) Find the PSP Update Version.. and run it, complete the on screen steps to install the new firmware.

Everytime i started to update my psp to version 3.51 it tells me that THE GAME COULD NOT BE STARTED (DADADADA). what is this and what will i do with this? my current version right now is 3.40 OE-A


If u r trying to update ur psp by any umd in this firmware, It may not be possible so all u have to do is download the update file(official update whichever version u like) and copy it inside a folder named UPDATE, the UPDATE folder should be inside a folder named PSP. The folder PSP could be found at the front(root folder) or when you open ur psp drive by using a computer...
NOTE: a)Do not cancel or switch off the psp during update...
b)Do not rename the update that you have downloaded...

How can i update the firmware of my psp in firmware 6.00


  1. Get the firmware upgrade data. You can get one on the official PSP website[1]. When clicking Download Now, remember to Save it, not open it. The file name should be EBOOT.PBP Save somehwhere where you can access it easily e.g. Desktop, My Documents, C:\. 180px-psp_619.jpg magnify-clip.png
  2. Plug in your USB cable that you have bought or had to your PC or Computer (same thing). On your PSP you should go to System Settings and on the 2nd from the top press (X) on USB Connect. On your computer it should say something like New Hardware detected USB Mass Storage Device. In My Computer there should be something named "Removable Disk"
  3. Click on the Removable Disk and inside there might (might not be) be a folder named "PSP". Click on the PSP folder to go inside of it and inside the PSP there might be a subfolder named "GAME".
  4. Inside the GAMES folder, create a new folder and name it UPDATE in caps, no spaces. Inside that UPDATE folder drag and drop that EBOOT.PBP that you downloaded earlier.
    • If the PSP folder and GAME folder are not there, you can just create them. Remember that the folder name MUST be in CAPITAL LETTERS and the the GAMES folder is INSIDE the PSP folder, don't mess this up or your PSP will ignore your folders
  5. "Safely Remove Hardware" -- this should be in your Icon Bar on the Right side of your start bar.
  6. Fully charge your PSP and plug it into the wall. Go to the Games Area; there should be an Icon that says Memory Stick Choose that by Pressing "X" and you'll see PSP Update Version *.** (* meaning what version you've downloaded onto your PSP).
  7. Press PSP Update Version *.**, It'll clear the screen for a few seconds and come back on saying "PSP System Software Version *.**" It has a "Start" option or says that you already have that version. Press the Start if you want to upgrade.
  8. Go through the User Agreement and start the upgrade Process. When it starts, remember not to even touch that PSP. Just leave it alone on the floor, desk , chair, etc.

[edit]Steps-Method 2
  1. Go to network update, under Settings.
  2. The PSP searches for possible updates.
  3. When the updates come, bypass all agreements etc. by pressing X button.
  4. Let it update in peace.

[edit]Steps-Method 3
  1. Make sure you have a UMD inserted.
  2. Go to game and choose PSP update.

Firmware 4.01 is not installing in my psp


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.

It will not work if it was the Official firmware. If you have custom firmware then there is probably a problem (Bug) which will be fxed in time.

Cant upgrade psp


Here's what you can do:

1. Connect your PSP to your PC.
2. Check if the proper folders are on it's Memory Stick. There is
a folder called PSP which had the following folders
underneath.


GAME
PICTURE
VIDEO
SYSTEM

3. The folder you need is GAME. Go in there and create a subfolder called UPDATE.

4. Go to www.playstation.com

5. Look for your local site.

6. Look in the PSP section for firmware updates. Here's the link for the most recent firmware update for the USA.
[PSP Firmware 3.80]

* If you need other regional firmware you'll need to look for it yourself or tell me where you from.

7. Download the file in the above link to a convenient place such as your desktop. Then copy it to the recently created UPDATE folder.

8. Safely disconnect your PSP.

9. Start up your PSP and go to the Game section of it, select Memory Stick. You should now see the file.

10. Open the file by pressing X. The update procedure starts. Be sure to follow the on screen instructions.

If you want to read these steps over again, click this link:
[Updating PSP via PC]

Warning: do not use firmware other then placed on Sony PlayStation's official site. For it might damage your system and it will never boot again. Also make sure the battery is fully charged (a charge of 50% will not do, the update utilty won't allow the update). Since it can take an few minutes you best connect it to it's power supply.

NEVER interupt an update by shutting your unit down, removing battery, removing stick, removing power. The damage done is not covered by Sony's warranty.

About the issue for the connection with your PS3 unit. It's true, you need one of the most recent firmwares.

I hope this helped you out, please rate my solution.

Greetings,
