Hi, firmware installed in my psp is 3.17.i need to download games for it.whether this firmware is enough or another one is needed.and also help me for downloading free psp games.


is that the sony official firmware or is it custom firmware also know as CFW. you will have to have cfw installed on your psp to be able to play downloaded games. on your psp go to SETTINGS> SYSTEM SETTINGS> SYSTEM INFORMATION in there after the system software it should read something like "5.00 m33-6" the m33 part is the important part. if it doesn't have that then more than likely your psp doesn't have cfw installed. another is the "genA"genB"or "genC" these are the more popular cfw out there. so get your psp with one of these firmwares and once done you'll have many options to go from there.

demonoid and pspiso are popular sites for games and tutorials.

OFW 5.51 screwed me


a pandoras battery is just a battery that puts your psp in to sevice mode so that you can restore from bad firmware updates which is used with a memory card containing firmware official or not.

with out the service mode battery and firmware memory card i dont think you can install custom firmware.


what psp do you have the problem with?
you can find one on Google or here:

I bought a new psp n cant play games on it by memory stick


Hi,
Yes '4.21' is the PSP's preloaded firmware. You are wanting Custom Firmware (CFW), so you can avoid paying for the expensive games, I guess.
This is an extremely fraught process involving hacking the PSP's battery, downloading files like POPSLoader and CXMB which are, in turn, difficult to find, and perilously difficult to install without bricking your PSP, then you need to use 'Recovery' and 'CWCheat', and this is just the process of readying the PSP for use..
Then you have to be able to get games, and get them onto your machine. This is another process with many careful steps..

I suggest you go and find a PSP-modding forum and look at walkthroughs of the entire process before you even begin thinking about tackling this yourself. And if you still think it's possible for a PSP newbie to attempt this, then get reliable help from the forums or someone you know personally, who knows what they are doing.

Otherwise you'll end up with a brick!

I won't expand any further, my friend, because while Fixya! is wonderful platform for sharing tips and guidance, it is not a platform for the legally dubious community of software modders, or a place where you'll ever be advised to take questionable risks with your products.

So go check out the PSP-modding forums and check youtube for how-to-guides, if you wish, but, seeing as you asked me, I advise you to get someone experienced with this process to do it for you, or to just leave it alone.

Good Luck :)

My PSP can't read ISO file


You'll need install custom firmware on your psp, the latest cfw update is 5.01m33-3, You can find it by googling or see at my blog here!. how to create pandora - magic stick.

To change your psp from official firmware you'll need pandora - magic stick (latest update DC7 - 4.01m33) for downgrading and install cfw,because since high kernel released, cfw can be installing from 1.50 OF fat(old model) psp.. and 3.60 for slim psp as startingpoint.

Hopefully this help, Pls post back should you need additional information, and also Show your Appreciation, to help other USER.

Psp download


yeah, if your PSP is not Modded and it is running on official firmware of SONY, then you should prolly have it modded or have it made into custom firmware...If you don't know how to check the what firmware version your PSP is running...then here is how:
open your PSP, then on the XMB, got SYSTEM SETTINGS then to SYSTEM information. on the top it says SYSTEM SOFTWARE, then check if your firmware version has a m33 suffix...if it doesnt have an m33 at the end, then it is an OFFICIAL firmware so have it modded, my friend...

How to upgrade my psp version 3.72 to version 3.9?


UMMM you don't need to upgrade you need to downgrade. Once you downgrade you can actually go ahead and upgrade to a custom firmware wich are the ones that allow you to do that and much more. If you really want to know how to do this and are still interested please send me an email at angelitoseriv@gmail.com. I say email because its a long process and i would need to ask you some questions about your psp and other stuff to so if you want more help send me a message with psp info as the tittle.
