Updating custom firmware

26-Dec-2017 00:33

For those of you who are new to the concept of hacked PSPs, custom firmware might not sound so familiar. Homebrew is software developed by the user community.Enabling this homebrew makes the PSP an open platform.If your PSP crashes, do a hard reboot and try again. Sony didn’t like this though, so they made sure this wasn’t possible with all next releases and/or firmwares.At one moment, you’ll get an error message as shown below. You’ll also be able to view the files contained within the folder now. Go to Game - Memory Stickâ„¢ and open the installer (1.50DDfor TA-079~081FW2.80PSP). I only suggest this method if you actually own this game, don’t go running to the store to get a copy.They have all the same functions, but have added functionality and the ability to run homebrew.

Some are harder to break than other, but it’s always possible.

A little déjà vu here, the hacker community did it again!

Instead of using Liberty City (more details above), they used a save-game exploit and a copy of the nifty puzzle game Lumines to get in.

If you are prompted about replacing any files, click ‘Yes to All’. As soon as it starts loading the savefile the screen will turn black and restart.

Rename the version 1.50 Firmware file from to UPDATE. Normally, you are now running HEN (Homebrew Enabler) which allows you to run homebrew files.

In this case, a tiff file is used to change the version number to 1.00, after which you’ll be able to update to 1.50. PBP file in X: PSPGAMEUPDATE (where X: is your PSP) and extract the MPH Downgrader zip in your PSP root (main folder). Don’t be afraid, this is just the program doing its work. If it fails to do so, just select the PSP root (main folder) manually. Unzip the Patch SFO EBOOT to X: PSPGAMEPatch SFO and the FW 1.50 EBOOT.
