It is possible to downgrade the software on a PSP, but it is relatively difficult and voids your warranty. Also, it may harm your console, so before you decide to do it be sure that you understand the process and that you are willing to accept the potential consequences.

The first thing to do is determine what version of the operating system you are already using. To do this, go to "settings" in the main menu, then select "system settings," then "system information." Write down you version, as what version you are running will determine how you are going to downgrade.

After you determine what version of the operating system you have you must find an appropriate downgrader and follow the instruction given by the developer. The first thing you should do when trying to find a program is to find one that is specifically designed to downgrade your system from your current version.

However, if you cannot find one, or you don't trust any of the downgraders for your version (remember, if something goes wrong your PSP could be damaged, and your warranty will now be voided) there is a one-size-fits-all tool called "Pandora's Battery," which can be found at http://www.noobz.eu/joomla/news/unbricker-for-all-firmwares.html

Pandora's Battery is a good utility, but it isn't perfect. I recommend using it only if you cannot find another program for your specific version that you trust and understand.

After you done all of this, be sure that you understand what the program you chose is going to do, and what you need to do to make it work. Every program is different, and there are tons out there so I can't give you detailed instructions on using your downgrader, but if you don't understand it, don't use it.

I know I have already said this before, but it is important so I will say it again: doing this will void your warranty and may harm your system in a number of ways. Be sure that you are fully committed to downgrading, that you trust the program you are going to use, and that you understand the program before deciding to follow through with a downgrade.

Please let me know what you decide to do and how it works out. Also, if you need any additional support, feel free to leave a comment and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

How can i downgrade my psp version 6.30 ofw to 5.50 gen-d3.without using any pandora battery


I am afraid this is not possible, if it is a PSP 1000 or 2000 you would need a pandora battery. However if it is a PSP 3000 upwards there is no way to downgrade the firmware at all. Anything above firmware 5.03 is not possible to downgrade on a PSP 3000.

Hope this helps

Can i downgrade the psp ofw 6.20? or is there any way that i could play downloaded game for that version?


the online is always coming up with ways to downgrade/upgrade. when a new ofw comes it it takes a bit for the mod community to come out with a way to downgrade those. just give it time and they'll have what ur looking for... also check youtube for all the necessary files n videos you'll need to downgrade n install the newest cfw.

You can use ChickHen R2 to downgrade your PSP without a pandora battery. You need also to download the ofw ver. 5.03 and cfw 5.03 GEN-C to hack your PSP. You can find many ChickHEN R2, cfw 5.03 GEN-C and step by step instruction in the internet.

Why is my psp not recognize the games after upgrade my psp to 6.00


Because you are using an Official Firmware(OFW) try
downgrading to a 5.00M33-6 Custom firmware(CFW)
you can easily do this with a pandora battery which will install 5.00 OFW on your psp and then you simply download the 5.00m33-6 CFW update
OR
download
1. Hellcat's Recovery Flasher
2. 5.00 OFW it is 25.83MB

install the Hellcat's Recovery Flasher on the psp
and put the 5.00 OFW on the psp
This files should be put in this directory
PSP/GAME

open the Hellcat's Recovery Flasher in the memory- stick of the Game section when the psp is on

follow the instructions
ENJOY..!!
