Is my psp bricked ?

So I tried to put old firmware on my psp so that I could play homebrewed games. However something happened a couple days later and the psp when I turn it on the green light stays on and the only way for me to turn it off is to take out the battery pack.

How to download a firmware 5.55


If you're referring to Official S0ny Firmware, it's in your PSP menu. You should connect your PSP to internet to do this update. It's a guided procedure so you would not have difficulties in doing so.
If you're planning to install ChickHen and Custom Firmware to your PSP to play Homebrew games, think twice. You should know the consequences of possibly "Bricking" your PSP. Things to put into consideration are (a) Your PSP version, some 200 series and the all 3000 SHOULD not be installed with CFW because they cannot be fixed once bricked. (b) Your MotherBoard version, if you have PSP 2000, make sure that your MoBo is lower than TA088v3. If not, DO NOT try ChickHen. Just a warning though.

How to Download Games on a PSP for Free


1.Check to see if you have the right firmware. Firmware is the proprietary operating system the PSP requires for functioning. You need Firmware 1.0 or 1.5 to download free games on a PSP. These versions allow you to play PSP homebrews (later versions have protections that avoid use of non-commercial PSP games).
To check your PSP's firmware, press the PSP's "home" button. Scroll down and select "Settings." From there, select "System Information." The firmware information can be found in the section where it says "System Software." If this section has the number 1.0 or 1.50, you'll be able to play PSP homebrews. If the number is higher, you won't be able to download free games on a PS

2.Format a PSP memory stick. (The size of the memory stick doesn't matter since most PSP homebrews are relatively small.) Insert the memory stick into the slot located on the left side of the PSP, where the directional buttons are. Pop open the cover and slide the memory stick in, making sure it's face up and follows the direction of the white arrow.
Press the "Home" button and go into the "Settings" section. Scroll down and select "Systems Settings." In the next screen, continue scrolling down until you can select "Format Memory Stick." The PSP will ask you if you want to format the memory stick. Answer "Yes," and the PSP will format the memory stick within just a few seconds.

3.Download free PSP games onto your computer. Sites like PSP Brew, UR PSP and PSP-Homebrew.eu contain tons of free PSP games. And the downloading process is pretty much the same. You either select an option to download, or you right-click on the file and use "Save As" for downloading.

4.Unzip the files. Usually, when you download free PSP games, you receive files in a compressed (or zipped), format. This allows a developer to send larger files without the hassle of breaking them up into pieces. However, before you can use these games, you will have to unzip them so you can have access to the individual files.
To unzip files, you need to use an unzipping utility. Windows comes with one, and it's relatively easy to use since you just select options from a Wizard. But if you prefer something more sophisticated, consider using WinZip, (for the PC), or Stuffit, (for Macs). Both of these programs can be downloaded free, though the legal version of WinZip only offers a 30-day trial. Either way, unzipping is as simple as selecting "Extract" and entering in the name of the file you want your games in.

5.Connect your PSP to the computer via a USB cable. Make sure you place the smaller end of the USB cable into your PSP. Place the larger end into any of the USB ports available on your computer.

6.Switch to USB mode. The PSP cannot communicate with your computer unless it is in USB mode. This is accomplished by pressing the "Home" button, scrolling towards "Settings" and then finally selecting "USB Connection."

7.Transfer the games onto your PSP. This step is the heart of downloading free games onto your PSP, and, it is simple. With your PSP connected to your computer, take whatever games you plan on downloading and place them into the PSP > GAME folder. If this folder doesn't appear automatically, you can create one by 'right-clicking' in the PSP directory and then entering in the name "Game."

8.Run the games you downloaded. After you have installed the desired games onto your PSP, disconnect the device from your computer. In the main menu, scroll to the "Game" section. Select the "Memory Stick" option. The PSP homebrews you downloaded will be contained here. Highlight one of them and press "X." Assuming the homebrew is coded properly and you have the right firmware, it should run just like a commercial PSP game.

Hey my Friends...... I put a software to my psp 3006.... so after putting it, my psp didn't turn on? can anyone help me to solve this problem????


Hi there...
Hmmm, I think what we've got here is a BRICKED PSP 3006.
Unluckily, those models of PSPs is not yet completely hackable because S0ny made sure that Homebrew games cannot be played with it. However, if you were careful with your installation on CFW (that's Custom Firmware), you should have known that 5.50 GenD3 or higher CANNOT be installed on these models as it will only brick your PSP.
Sad to say that there is yet a way to unbrick your PSP. Even the greatest PSP Hackers may have given up to their quest in finding a way to unbrick these kinds of PSP, starting from PSP 2000 with TA088v3 Motherboards...
You may try to send it to S0ny and tell them it happened because you were updating your firmware from their site and it tripped off while you were updating... They MIGHT be able to do something for it...

How can i put hole games on psp for free with no custum firewire


This is not possible for free, for a low charge you can get alot games from playstation network.

The original Sony firmware also won't run homebrew software, it will only run the games bought from Playstation Network and original UMD's

If you want to play backuped game and homebrew, you still have to flash custom firmware on your psp.

simply, yes. custom firmware is hacking into your PSP to let you play games off your memory stick and run programs called "homebrew", all custom firmwareing is is unlocking the potential of your PSP to the max it can go.
Basically:  You can play games you download, Run Homebrew and etc.
