PSP System software Upgrade

I am trying to upgrade my PSP (1000sv Silver) from existing version 3.40 OE-A (as mentioned in System Settings) to 5.03. I need version 4.05 or more to run Ben 10 Alien Force. Upon downliading it to PC, I have moved the upgrade file EBOOT.PBP to folder PSP\GAME\UPDATE. The UPDATE folder did not exist earlier, which I have created. On starting the game from UMD, I get the message 'The game could not be started (DADADADA).

Please let me know if the steps I followed are correct or I need to do something else.

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:

PSP with corrupt/unofficial firmware 3.03 OE-C (Code DADADADA)


Try to upgrade it 3.52 first and then jump to the latest 3.90. If you want to keep a CFW then check out http://www.dark-alex.org/ for more info.

Worst case you might have to 'unbrick' it with a Pandora's battery. See http://forums.qj.net/f-psp-pandora-discussion-207/t-guide-make-the-perfect-pandoras-battery-124530.html for a really good guide on how to make your own safely and the steps needed to 'unbrick' a corrupt PSP.
