You need to install what they call a CUSTOM FIRMWARE in order to play games from your memory card...using a PANDORA KIT

    And yes, i recommend for your firmware an upgrade to a custom firmware, e.g. 3.90 m33 and later firmwares for you to be able to play ISO/CSO games on your PSP...and also homebrew games and applications...

Well my psp at first had a version of 3.71(i could play iso games)... then i updated it to 6.00 (i can't play iso games)....now i want to make it 3.71 ....how is that possible?....could you tell me step by...


Hi There!
Honestly, downgrading the firmware is tedious compared to upgrading it. I would suggest you have someone who has the technical knowledge to do this. Failed downgrade could lead to a bricked psp. Which will render it useless. Some can be reflashed and will work back while some cannot.
However, you can purchase a Pandora battery for you PSP. Remember: You CANNOT downgrade your PSP with any firmware higher than 3.50 without a Pandora's Battery.
You may check this link for a self-help guide in making your own Pandora battery. This is for a PSP slim model.

Please need help to downgrade my psp-3000 to lower version for me to play games in memory stick.


if your firmware version is 5.03 or below it can be downgraded, if it,s above that it can not be downgraded as on now because the cracks available works only for version 5.03 or below. there are plenty of tutorials in the net if you want to downgrade your psp by yourself or you can bring it to a game shop which offer downgrade/upgrade or modification of psp.

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


HELLO! There's no need to downgrade ur PSP. If u have upgraded ur PSP from the official site and a official firmware has been installed on to ur PSP, it won't execute games(ISO,CSO) from ur memory stick. It will only run games from the UMD. If u want to run ur games from a memory stick u have to install a CUSTOM FIRMWARE. Try www.psp-hacks.com these guys have many softwares on their site. Dont worry its not that hard to put a Custom firmware onto ur PSP.

Psp not saving or loading


Hi Spazza2,

Did yout try using the same UMD game your brother was using and see if the game format has anything to do with it?  Since you upgraded, the UMD game may be old, and might not work with Version 3.71. It sounds like your PSP is working just  fine other than that.

Save downloaded games


well, you'll require a modified firmware inorder to play games from your mem stick......now installing a custom firmware or downgrading is a risky process , so do it at your own risk! once that's done, you'd require a "ripkit" to compress the image incase if it doesn't fit in to the 1 gig stick.....get ripkits for all games from http://forums.maxconsole.net/
