I had to format psp and now need to update it so it works for my son, please help!

Hello Yasmin,

You need a wi-fi connection in order to update your PSP.

Turn ON your PSP, go to settings (all the way to the left)

Then press UP all the way to Network Update and then press X.

Connect to a wireless connection and then the PSP should automatically check for updates.

If the PSP found an update, it will ask you if you want to update your PSP.

Press X.

I hope this helped you.

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:
If you want to install official firmware, you can find a list of downloads here:
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.

How to upgrade sony psp

Go to and download the latest PSP update. Connect your PSP to your computer using a USB cable. Wait for your computer to recognize that the PSP is connected (a bubble should appear that says "New hardware detected" or something similar).

Once you computer sees the PSP, go to "My Computer" and look for the PSP. It should be called "Removable Disk" and have an icon.

Open the removable disk icon, and look for a folder called "PSP." Open that folder, and then open the folder inside of it called "GAME." If either of those two folders don't exist, create them by right clicking, clicking "create new folder," and name the folder correctly in all caps with no spaces.

Once you have opened the "GAME" folder, create a new folder inside it using the method above, only this time name it "UPDATE." Open that folder, then drag and drop the file you downloaded for the Playstation website (should be called Eboot.pbp).

Disconnect your PSP. Fully charge it, then turn it on and select "Memory Stick" in the "Games" area. You PSP should then prompt you to press start to update your firmware version. Press start, and then just let it do it's thing.

Hi i want to ask how to downgarde psp 6.20 to 5.50 without pandora battery please help me in that...thank you


You can downgrade your psp without a pandora battery but you will need a Lumines game hack,Follow these steps to do so.

Download the 5.50.pbp file. Rename the 5.50.pbp file to "UPDATE.PBP." Connect your PSP to your computer with the USB cable and select "USB Connection" to place the PSP into USB mode. A window will appear on your computer and you will be able to see the PSP memory stick files.

Download the downgrade pack. Open the "MS_ROOT" folder from the downgrade pack. Right-click the "PSP" folder and click "Copy." Go back to the PSP memory stick and right-click it. Click "Paste" and "Yes" to overwrite the data.

Right-click the UPDATE.PBP file that you downloaded in step one and click "Copy." Open the "PSP" folder on the PSP memory stick and you will see the "GAME" folder. Open this folder to reveal the "UPDATE" folder. Right-click the "UPDATE" folder and click "Paste" to transfer the update file to your PSP memory stick. The downgrade pack and 5.50 update file are on the PSP memory stick. Press the "O" button to safely disconnect the PSP from your computer.

Insert the Lumines PSP game into the PSP drive. Select the game from the PSP menu to start. Press the "Start" button when you get to the Lumines start screen. Your screen will blink red and will turn completely blue. You will be brought back to the PSP screen. It is important to not press any buttons before you get to the Lumines start screen.

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.
