Problems playing downloaded games(cso files)

Hello. Well i had my PSP for about 2  months. I'm still a newbie. I tried to install dev.052 and could not get it to work. I found a forum that helped step by step. I followed them and still nothing. HELP!! PLEASE!! i Followed these steps. I get stuck on step6. My PSP says my data is corrupted and PSARDumper reads the game can not be stated(8002014c).

Remove all previous devhook files from your memory stick.

2. Copy the devhook 0.52 package to the root of your memory stick. This would be ms0:/ and the three folders should be "dh", "PSP" and "fbm". If you are running OE, make sure that the DH052 folders are going into the GAME150 folder.

3. Download the 3.11 update here.

4. Get PSARDumper here. Unpack it and move the program to your GAME folder, or GAME150 if you are running OE.

5. Extract the DATA.PSAR from the 3.11 update you've downloaded with PBP Unpacker. Once thats done, copy the DATA.PSAR over to the root of your memory stick.

6. Run PSARDumper on your PSP, once its loaded up press X to dump a sigchecked 3.11. Once its done your PSP will return to the main menu.

7. Open up your memory stick, you will now see that there is an "F0" folder in the root. Move that to the "311" folder inside of "dh".

8. Finally, choose "FIRMWARE" from the devhook menu and pick 3.11. Now start devhook and you should be good to go!

i would really appreciate your help.

This problem occurs when there is some problem with the firmware, it can be happen If you are running official sony firmware, and/or if your firmware in custom OE/SE, you will need UMD inserted for execute devhook app. if so, i recommend you to upgrade your firmware to use the latest version of the custom firmware. 3.71 can activate the plugin for using M33 or Sony-NPL9960 driver. see here for guide. but what version is your psp?

Please let i know if you experience any problems in the future. I hope i can make the appropriate adjustments, so do not hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions.

I recently updated my psp 3000 to Version 6.38, and once the update was installed, my Action Replay PSP data was gone and i had later found that it was Corrupted. i formatted the memory stick more than...

you have to downgrade your system to 6.20. thats the only supporting firmware ar psp could run on. and plus, the server is currently down and it will take time to fix it. i received this info from datel customer service via email. im guessing about 1 month for the ar server to work.

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

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 :)
