PSP-2000 Update problem

My PSP-2000 is currently running on version 3.60.
I bought the new LocoRoco 2 which requires a new firmware.
I tried both ways - thru direct internet and via PC.
After I execute the firmware 5.02 from the Memory Stick, the system tells me "The game could not be started. (DADADADA)". And no update took place.
What do I do wrong?

Firmware 3.60 is rather old, I would suggest upgrading to 4.01 or something in between before jumping to 5.02, this may clear the problem.

The network update feature of the PSP usually works better than when downloading via PC because there is less room for error. After you upgrade to a 4.xx firmware, try using the network update again.

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.

If you can't load only the NEW games that require higher Firmware versions, then you need to update Prometheus. Unfortunately, I can't help you with that here. Just google it.

My psp used a 6.20 version.but when i update it into 6.37 version,i cant open my games.what i need to do to use 6.37 version.my psp is 3000


If you had custom firmware on your PSP, and upgraded to 6.37, there is currently no way to downgrade to the old CFW or to play any downloaded ISO files. You will need to wait until a new custom firmware is release or a down grade patch is available.

well you are running a custom firmware and its probably having update issues if the custom side of the psp is outweighing the potential to run umd discs efficiently then just update the m33 out of the unit or download a firmware emulator for it i had to on my virgin firmware unit but even these get put out and never updated to run newer firmwares so its a shot in the dark for you but try it so google psp hacks and homebrews and there islots of sites with goodies you can use that custom firmware for even used for loading your iso games rite off the memory card instead of discs ok look around and you will be surprised what a custom psp can do:)

Iso/cso won't run to PSP version 4.20


You cannot play .iso or .cso files (or any homebrew games) on your PSP unless you have firmware 1.5 or a custom firmware. Any "off-the-shelf" firmware such as 4.2 will not support these types of files. They will just show up as "Corrupted Data".

You can go through the process of downgrading your firmware from 4.2 to 1.5, then from 1.5 you may upgrade to a custom firmware such as 5.00 m33-4. Doing so would require a good deal of technical know-how and a LOT of patience. If you do not want to risk ruining your PSP, do NOT try this. Research methods of downgrading such as "Pandora's Battery" and other firmware downgraders.

You were able to download games from the PSP website because they are programmed to play on the current firmware. Even if you were to (somehow) properly convert the .iso or .cso files to an EBOOT.PBP file, it would not run unless you have firmware 1.5 or custom.
