    My psp was bricked and got it unbricked myself but when I did the Network Update the 2nd time I did not realized it was the 3.95 firmwarel and now I cannot play my iso games. I want it back to 1.50 or latest as long I can play my iso games. Also when I want to open my RECOVERY MENU whenever I press and hold the R button it doesn't do anything. What's wrong?

Ya need a pandora battery = magic memory stick with the original sony 1.50 update. put the memory stick in, then battery. it should turn on automatically, all lights on. then show you a screen that says install 1.50. install it, then go to and download all the updates, you can start with 2.71 special edition then go all the way to 3.90 m33-2. in my opinion, go to 3.71-2. best CFW so far.

SOURCE: downgrade psp firmware 5.02

Someone will have to run the flash program to get you back to M33. Pandora battery and Magic stick with M33 flash on it. Most homebrew and programs will not run on any M33 version above 3.9. New UMD games from sony will have the latest firmware and the children will usually run the firmware upgrade to play the game. It will allow the new UMD to play, but the Sony Firmware will write over the Custom M33 firmware and you will not be able to run the games on your Memory stick.

Can i downgrade my psp from ver 6.37

It depends on which motherboard version your PSP has. If it has a compatible motherboard, you are able to downgrade and install custom firmware. You will, however, need someone with a psp already running custom firmware to create what is called a "Pandora's Battery". A guide on how to do this can be found here:

I hope this helped!

Hi, how can I download luxor the wrath game of set then transfer it to Sony psp

you can only download the version that has been ripped and designed to work on pirated or downgraded psp(as you may know it)
you see, there are no places where you can download full psp game that are still in the official format that the psp is designed to work with. the formats available are the .cso and .iso formats which would work only on psp that has been downgraded.
anything apart from this, im sorry is likely not to work.

How can i downgrade my psp version 6.2?

Hi. Unfortunately, there is no way for you to downgrade Ver 6.2. Pandora Batteries (the only known way to downgrade PSPs) do not work with the PSP-3000, and, as such, you can not downgrade it.

Psp to downgrade it

You need to chip your PSP with Pandora's Battery and a 'Magic Memory Stick'
If you have a Fat or Slim PSP it works. If at the bottom of your PSP it says -3000 at the end, sorry but your PSP is unchippable.
After you downgrade your PSP to 'Custom Firmware' you can place ISO and CSO roms onto it.
