I have psp slim (PSP 2000) with 5.03 GEN C (Full), i cant play with the new downloaded games,,,...what's the latest cfw i can upgrade my psp, so i can play the new games i have,,,<>?? thank...

Hey there.
Before updating to 5.50 Gen-D3 (which is a higher version than yours), try knowing your PSP MoBo first. Why? Because, you may brick your PSP with the upgrade. Use PSPident to do that. Here's a link for that (MONSTER here!!!). Don't mind the monster, I just thought it's kinda nice doin' that. LOL
Now, do that PSPident in your PSP. If your MoBo appear to be TA088v3, DO NOT (never ever) upgrade to 5.50 Gen-D3 or you will have your PSP dead... If your MoBo is LOWER than TA088v3 (like, say, TA085v1 or v2) then go on with the 5.50 Gen-D3.
If upgrading doesn't solve your problem with playing homebrew, you may have downloaded a corrupted ISO or CSO file... Find a new torrent for that game again...
Happy playing...

I upgrade my psp slim to 6.31 but cannot use my hombrew

I think upgrading to higher versions will disable you from playing homebrew. Try CFW that is 6.20 or upgrade it to 6.35... Be careful though, installing CFW to your PSP (especially it's slim which has the chance to have a TA088v3 MoBo) may result to PSP bricking.
Try to search the web as many as possible to make sure you're doing the right thing. I cannot give you the answer here because playing homebrew in PSP is quite vast and if I were you, I'll browse a lot before touching my PSP again... Here's what you need to know;
1. Your PSP Slim MoBo (Motherboard) - make sure that it's not TA088v3. To know your MoBo version, download and install PSPIdent in your PSP and run it. It will create an image file detailing what is your PSP MoBo version.
2. Being ready for Pandora and Magic Memory stick in case you brick your PSP (which works only to those with non TA088v3 boards).
3. Files you are downloading. Installing CFW to play homebrew is tricky. You need to download the correct file which is ultimately relative to each other in order to do it right.
Now, you may consider browsing PSPmod and everythign Dark Alex is doing to get a worthy solution to your problem...
Good luck...

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 can i downgrade my ver 6.10 software psp????

Hello there

Download MPH Downgrader and Firmware version you want(e.g 1.50) to the Windows-based computer. Connect the PSP Slim to the computer's USB port using the USB connector. Transfer the two programs to the main folder of the PSP Slim. Disconnect the PSP Slim from the computer's USB hub when the transfer is complete.

Turn on the PSP Slim. Go to the Settings/USB Connection in the Home menu and select the EBOOT.PBP file in the PSP\GAME\UPDATE update folder. Extract the MPH Downgrader zip file to the root folder of the PSP. Click OK using the X button if you are prompted that this will replace some files.

Go to Photo/Memory Stick in the Home menu. Wait as the screen goes black and numbers appear. Wait two minutes and then press and hold the power switch until the PSP Slim turns off. Release the power switch.

Wait as the PSP Slim turns on and reboots. Go to Game/Memory Stick in the Home menu and select PSPS Update version 1.50. Press the X button to start the update.

Wait as the update finishes and presents an error message. Press the O button to restart the PSP.

I upgrade my psp in version 5.01, now i cant play my games

the PSP has to be hacked in order for you to play downloaded games. If you get a magic memory stick and a pandora battery it can be done easily even with the 5.50 firmware version. Google pandora battery, and magic memory stic or (psp mmj tutorial) and you get lots of good info.

Hope this helps.

I cant put games on my psp slim

if you have downloaded the firmware from the internet, that is really not advisable. it would be best to go the nearest gaming zone for updating firmware.
some firmware are not compatible and not updated. downgrade your firmware to a more stable firmware.
