Re: PSP Update


You can do this at home without going anywhere. If your PSP is from the USA go here...if it's from Asia go here.

How do I update my psp console?

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.

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...

Psp was turned off while downloading the latest update, It won't turn on.

Here's an article which identifies your problem. Hope it helps:

"Oh, do I have bad news for you. I have heard from many people that have unplugged their PSP accidentally during an update, got bored during the slow download, or had some other glitch interrupt a network update or processing a downloaded update just to end up with a completely dead Sony PSP device.The only advice I can offer you and other people in this situation is to call Sony and talk to them about how lame it is that you can kill your expensive Playstation Portable device by a relatively random or unlucky event during a firmware update. It seems to me - though I'm definitely not a part of Sony and cannot speak with any authority here - that Sony should replace PSPs that are killed during a failed firmware update. I don't know if they do, but they should.
Which makes me think: if you have had this experience and call Sony about your dead PSP, please leave a note here to tell us who you called, what your experience was like and how it turned out. That is, did they make good on the problem or did they just say "ah, bummer, dude." and hang up?
I can't emphasize enough how important it is to:
  • plug your PSP into the wall during the entire firmware upgrade process, and
  • don't interrupt it during a download, even if it's taking a long time
lest you "brick" or otherwise kill your unit.
Also note that you can likely minimize the problem of slow or stalled downloads by actually downloading the firmware update package on your PC or Mac. In that situation nothing bad will happen if you kill the download halfway. Then all you have to do is copy the downloaded firmware package onto your Sony PSP and run it. Elapsed time once you've finished the download? Just a few minutes. Much less risk."

I have the psp 3001 in version 6.00, and i want to

Sorry, but your psp is UNHACKABLE, like mine. Just dont update your firmware, and wait for something to be released for firmware 6.00. On psp 3000's, only firmware 5.03 is hackable. So just wait, and keep checking back at the psplimhacks home page for news for psp3000fw6.00 hacks.

Yeah you can update your psp, just make sure it has at least 70% charge, 100 would be be better, plug it in and make sure you don't switch it off during its update. if you do, it will be bricked. as long as you do it properly, it will be fine.
