Translations for this article: • • EN Important note: the following guide is valid on all regional variations of the PSP 300x: PSP 3000, PSP 3001, PSP 3002, etc up to PSP 3009. Installing a Custom Firmware on your PSP 3000 has never been so easy. In this page I’m describing the easiest possible way for you to install the most reliable Custom Firmware on your PSP: Pro CFW.
Installing Pro CFW on your PSP3000 is simple, free, and is not much risky than installing a Firmware update on your device. It does not require any advanced hack technique or hardware modification. There’s basically 3 easy steps (you were expecting more? Sorry to disappoint): 1.
Download the necessary files • • 2. Update your PSP To firmware 6.60 Skip this step if you already have Firmware 6.60 installed on your PSP. In order to install Pro CFW on your PSP, you will need to first update your PSP to the 6.60 Sony firmware (which, at the time of this writing, is the latest firmware released by Sony), if that’s not already the case. There are versions of Pro CFW that will run on older firmwares, but updating to 6.60 will guarantee the best compatibility for your official games. To install the 6.60 Firmware, just unzip the archive on your PSP’s memory stick, in the “PSP/GAME” folder (you should end up with an “UPDATE” folder in the PSP/GAME folder, if you do things correctly), then run the update from your PSP menu.
Trouble upgrading? Install Pro CFW The Pro CFW archive provides several subfolders in the “PSP/GAME” folder. Two of them are interesting for us: the FastRecovery and the PROUPDATE folders.
Those two need to be extracted to the PSP/GAME folder on your memory stick. Assuming you extracted the files correctly, you will see a few new applications in your PSP’s Game menu. The one you will want to run in order to install Pro CFW is “Pro Update”. You can erase the “ProUpdate” folder from your PSP, but keep the “FastRecovery” one. DAILY USE That’s it, I said 3 steps 🙂 Welcome to the world of Custom Firmwares. There’s no additional step required to install the Pro CFW.
However, every time you reboot your console, you will have to reactivate ProCFW, which is done by running the Fast Recovery tool from your PSP’s Game menu, and takes literally 5 seconds. Power user In this section you will find additional tricks/steps if you want to improve or customize your experience with a Custom Firmware on your PSP 3000 Some people think that it is a burden to reactivate the CFW every time they reboot their console. It is important to note that this is needed only if you reboot the console, not if you put it into sleep mode. Most people use the sleep mode 90% of the time without ever realizing it. Trust me, I’ve used several PSPs for years now, running the Fast Recovery tool is not a problem in your daily usage.
That being said, it is possible on most models of PSP 3000 to downgrade to Firmware 6.20, and install a permanent CFW on this firmware. Honestly I don’t recommend this, but if you’re interested, go and. I have a problem with my CFW. I put the CFW on the right directory on my SD card but the PROUPDATE app doesn’t appear, neither does the FastRecovery. When it DOES appear, I try to run the PROUPDATE but I get a “this game could not be started (80020148)” error message. I don’t know how to put my PSP 3003 (03g) into recovery mode even after following the turn on and hold R button method. My memory card also sometimes becomes unreadable and I have to reformat it to get it working again, then put the CFW on it again.
I personally thing the issue lies with the Memory Card but i can’t rule it out as I don’t have another one around. Mtgo Activation Code. I may pick one up soon though, but just wanted some advice at this moment just in case that isn’t the issue. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
