Updating psp firmware 6 31
The permanent patch takes two forms: either the c IPL flasher that comes with the CFW, or the Infinity 6.61 patch (which is bit more involved but provides the same functionality). First check which version of the official firmware (OFW) your PSP is currently running by going into your Settings menu, then System Settings / System Information.
If you’re on a version older than 6.60 then you must perform this update, otherwise skip this step.
The common feature of all custom firmware available for the PSP is to relax the signing process for PSP applications, so that applications that developers that aren’t Sony approved can be installed.
MFC, copy this file into the FLASHER folder on your memory card and now run the Flasher application from your PSP. You are technically still running the OFW at this stage, just a compromised version of it, so now you’ll need to reinstall the CFW just as you did in the Once that’s installed download the Infinity Configuration folder from Davee’s website, then unpack and copy the files within into your PSPGAME folder.
Regardless of which hardware revision you have, go ahead and copy the PROUPDATE into the PSPGAME directory on your memory card.
You’ll now see a Pro Update application in your PSP, run it and allow it to complete the installation.
You can play games in the UMD drive, you can play games you bought from the store, but when it comes to trying to play games in an unconventional manner, you will hit a road block.
If you try to play a backup copy of a game, activate a non-sony theme, or install an emulator you will find you can’t progress in some manner. Custom Firmware (abbreviated CFW) relaxes restrictions put in place by Sony, and allows you to do much more than you could do before with your PSP.
