    Do you mean you have to run Original firmware from Sony ?
    Let me know the PSP model no and the firmware you are on to assist you further.

Thats great. Just follow these instructions:

  1. IF you go to the recovery menu (turn your psp completely off, hold R, and then turn it back on) then go to configuration and disable cfw updates option, then exit out of recovery,
  2. Go to network updates, and there you have it,
  3. Otherwise you can just download the update off a computer.
  4. As for getting rid of a portal, just delete your common folder, make a new one, and if you had the portal as your psp homepage, then go to your internet browser on you psp and delete it as your homepage
Hope this helps :)

    there is no cfw on the screen

  • Oss279 Mar 12, 2011

    Ok, if there is nothing there then you can directly head for Network updates. It is just a minor step to make sure every thing goes smooth.

You should be able to remove the custom firmware from your PSP just by doing an official software update from Sony. Go ahead and do the update.

    I have the same problem. Most games work fine but bought a new one (midnight club LA remix) and it wont let you play the game as it says you need to update and game can't play due to (dadadada) I have discovered that this refers to a modification Dark Alex??? I have no clue about all these abbreviations so I need someone to explain in simple terms what I have to press/click via some sort of walkthrough! I have done network update and still get the same message, 'The game could not be started (DADADADA)' no error code! How can it be unmodified without stopping my psp from working.

You're not meant to 'do anything' while the PSP is updating!

You'll need a Techician, or a Magic MS + Pandora Battery!

Psp games

The closest thing you will get to free games are flash games that will work in your psp browser. They are not very good, usually. The are too many sites to list. Just do a google search for 'psp flash games'.
