Just use 6.60 Pro-C1. Its updated frequently and it works on all the PSPs, even those 3000s or Gos or whatever psp model you mistakenly think it won't work on. Also C2 breaks playing PS1 games, so stick with C1. You can grab C1 here.
Seeing as PSP homebrew doesn't have to involve outdated psp models, hacked batteries, and replacing the firmware anymore; its probably time for a new thread. First off, lets go over some terms that will be commonly used in this thread:
Official Firmware (OFW): That firmware that Sony put on your PSP. Its almost always abbreviated, presumably to annoy people who don't know what it means.
Signed homebrew: Signing a homebrew allows it to be run on OFW. Though some emulators and iso loaders can't be signed. There's lists of already signed homebrew at Wololo.net and PSP-Hacks, or you can use PSCRYPTER to sign things.
Homebrew Enablers (HEN)/Lite Custom Firmware (LCFW) (LCFW is a trendy name for full-featured HENs): Kind of like CFW except they work on all PSPs and they must be reran after every reboot of your PSP.
6.20/6.35/6.39/6.60 PRO-C1 is shiny, new(ish), and supports an online server for adhoc-only games. For now, grab Pro-C1 somewhere that isn't the code.google.
6.60 LME: Neur0n, a pretty talented developer, has also made a LCFW for the hell of it. He uses his twitter to announce updates (He does speak English).
Custom Firmware (CFW): A permanent replacement of Sony's firmware, but only for PSP-1000s or non-TA088v3 PSP-2000s. They're all really outdated, so don't bother using these.
5.00 M33-6: Its over 2 years old now.
5.50 GEN-D3: Can corrupt your saves if you install it.
XMB (Xross Media Bar): Sony's dumb name for the menu where you pick what game you want to play. Its also called VSH, which is where the VSH menu (If you're running HEN/CFW, go press select when in the XMB) got its name from.
Recovery Menu: A menu with a bunch of settings to play with, some of them are pretty useful. If using a CFW or LCFW, you can access it by holding the R trigger while booting your PSP. Pro-B also lets you access it from the VSH menu.
For people just looking for quick info:
Lastly, you shouldn't need to mess with pandora batteries anymore, but Sir Unimaginative wrote a tutorial on them if you need to make one for some reason.

Cool poo poo to do with your (Light) Custom Firmware.
Look in the VSH Menu (press select while in the xmb) for this; also if you got a permanent patch try holding down the R trigger when you boot your PSP. Some of the options there are pretty neat:
CPU Speed Allows you to change the speed in the XMB or during gameplay. Allows a choice between 222MHz, 266MHz, 300MHz, 333MHz or Default.
Plugins Allows you to configure the plugins you have installed on your PSP.
Registry Hacks Allows you to change your accept button to x or o depending on if you want japanese or american style settings.
ISO Mode Allows you to run games without having to have a UMD in your PSP. There are a few options in here, but the Inferno one tends to have better compatibility overall. Still, if a game won't run with one, try another.
Most people won't use these. But you might want to try experimenting with Memory Stick Speedup and Use ISO Cache.
PSX on your PSP
Ok, so this has confused enough people already. Here is how to put PSX games that you own on your PSP.
You may have noticed the bottom half of the program. Basically, you can make your ISO pretty, by changing the background picture that comes up, or the icon, or playing music in the background. Once you get the hang of it it's fairly easy to do, but that's beyond the scope of this walkthrough. If you're interested in looking into it, there
Lastly, if you're having trouble running a PSX game; take a look at this compatibility database I threw up on google docs. You may notice that they often suggest running a game under a specific firmware version, that doesn't mean you have to downgrade or something difficult. Just download and install Popsloader instead. You will also need to obtain the original Sony firmware EBOOT.PBP files for each firmware version you want to use (See the installer's readme for what to do with them).
And finally we're down to the nitty gritty. These links probably are broken, so please mind the mess.
Gameboy Color/Sega Master System (And Game Gear)
NES: NesterJ or FCEU (supports weird stuff like Chinese FF7)
SNES: Euphoria or s9xTYL (Euphoria can be buggy)
Sega Master System/Game Gear
Genesis/Sega CD (Can be signed)
PC-Engine/TurboGrafx 16: "PSPHUGO" or "PCE for PSP"
GBA: gpSP Kai or gpSP-J (there's an english option. look for 言語, the eboot is also signed) Requires a gba bios - Do not ask for one here or you're loving retarded.
e[mulator] Supports Wonderswan, Game Gear, Gameboy and more.
Cave Story Back before it was in 3D, it got a pretty decent port to the PSP.
Meritous: Imagine Zelda with psychic powers. A port of a PC game.
Aquaria A port, requires files from your pc version (Check Steam) and some work to get running.
Mobile Assault: A love letter to those old Desert Strike games.
Wagic A trading card game that is in no way inspired by a similarly named game.
Translated Games (some are in progress)
Grand Knights History: by our very own Gyoru. This game is coming out in the US though, so you'll want to just wait.
Hatsune Miku Project Diva: rhythm gaming with the not-real girl from those Toyota commercials.
Idolmaster SP: I've never played an Idolmaster, so I don't know what the gently caress is going on with it.
Monster Hunter Portable 3rd: we got a thread about these games.
Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity: Coldbird is trying to get some translators together for PSP2i.
Shiren The Wanderer 3 Portable: Sort-of Roguelike. This is also on the Wii.
Tales of Phantasia: Just a menu patch, but thats better than what Tales fans usually get.
Way of the Samurai Portable: Do whatever you want as a samurai. Official US release way back on the PS2.
Patches to fix broken games you paid money for.
Final Fantasy Tactics WOTL slowdown fix: Works with your UMD or PSN copies. So you can enjoy it no matter how you bought the game.
Cool misc stuff
Game Categories Lite: Allows you to sort your homebrew and games in folders.
Pprefs: A plugin that lets you enable/disable plugins and sort your games. Highly recommended.
MacroFire: Plugin that allows you to adjust your analog stick, set up button macros, turbo buttons, or autofire.
TempAR: A cheating program for PSP and PSX games. Nice for when you don't want to grind in your rpgs.
PSP-States: Save states for your PSP! Doesn't work on PSP-1000s, and you can ignore the part about modifying flash0 in the install instructions. Also works on PSP Gos.
Monster Hunter Save Converter:: Converts your saves from one region to another.
PSN License Manager Allows you to quickly switch PSN accounts, perfect if you like the imports.
Applications that require a PC (with Windows)
UMDGen: lets you strip out useless data out of UMD image files so you can fit more games on your card.
AdhocToUsb: Play multiplayer over the internet! Requires Xlink Kai.
RemoteJoyLite: Allows you to display video on your pc monitor. Captain Novolin wrote a nice guide on how to set up.
PSX2PSP For all your PSX game conversion needs. Easy to use GUI, allows you to change everything including SND0.AT3 and ICON1.PMF
ImpalerPSX: Another PSX game conversion tool. Its worked for me.
PSP Updates The largest depository of homebrew and psp related news. Also the largest depository of retards on the internet.
Wololo Yet another file host. Filled with just as many retards.
Blatantly stolen straight from the previous four threads!
Q: How do I know what firmware version I have?
A: In the PSP XMB, open Settings -> System Settings -> System Information.
Q: How do I back up my PSP games?
A: Make sure you got plenty of room on your memory stick, use Iso Tool (The option is called Iso Convert), and this will take a bit so make sure your PSP is charged.[/url]
Q: How do I run stuff?
A: If you have homebrew or a PSX game, put it in a folder inside /PSP/GAME. For example, if you have PornOnTheBus 1.8 that you'd like to put on your PSP and it comes with an EBOOT.PBP file, you'll want to see /PSP/GAME/PornOnTheBus/EBOOT.PBP (the folder name that EBOOT.PBP goes in doesn't really matter, but it's nice to have descriptive names). If you've backed up a PSP game, it should go in /ISO.
Q: I downloaded a plugin for my custom firmware and it came with some .prx files and a couple of .txt files. What do I do with them?
A: In the root of your Memory Stick, you may or may not see a folder named "seplugins". If you don't see it there, create it. Now, depending on the plugin you downloaded, you might have just some .prx files floating around or they might be in a folder that's named something. Copy them over to /seplugins on your Memory Stick, keeping the folder structure (if any) of the plugin.
Next comes the file editing. Those .txt files that come with plugins generally shouldn't be directly copied over to your Memory Stick unless you don't already have a text file by that name in /seplugins. The reason for this is because the text files tell your custom firmware where to look on your Memory Stick for plugin files and when to load them. You might see any of the following files or some combination of them:
Go ahead and load one of the text files (or the only text file, in many cases) that came with the plugin. It should have at least one line that looks something like:
Copy all the lines from that file and paste them into an identically-named text file in /seplugins on your Memory Stick. Save the file and then boot into the recovery console (hold R when cold-booting your PSP). Go down to plugins and you should see your new plugin listed in there, once for each text file entry you added. Go ahead and enable each instance of the plugin and then exit the recovery console. Your plugin should now work.
Q: I bought the component cables for my slim PSP, but the picture is the size of a postage stamp or I bought composite or S-video cables for my PSP, but can't get it to display on my TV in games. What can I do?
A: You can try the FuSa plugin, which allows you to use composite and S-video cables as well as the official component cables and will let you expand the image to a full-screen image. It's somewhat prone to crashing, but is better than nothing. An alternative solution is to use RemoteJoyLite.
Q: I like that my slim can charge via USB, but I don't like that I have to keep it in USB mode to do that. Is there any way around this?
A: Most CFWs should have this feature built-in. Take a look in the Recovery Menu.
Q: My PSP already has CFW, should I update to this HEN thing?
A: The Pro series now has a permanent patch, and all the features of the CFWs. Plus it can play new games and access the PSN Store. So yes, you should update.
Q: How do I play these new games that demand I update my firmware?
A: Make sure you're using the newest Pro (L)CFW. Otherwise, try doing the version.txt trick. Grab this 6.60 version.txt (some other versions) throw the txt file in ms0:/seplugins and make a copy of it named usbversion.txt (for fooling your PS3 or MediaGo).
Q: Can a PSP that has been loaded with custom firmware be reverted to official Sony firmware?
A: Yes, try using Hellcat's Recovery Flasher. Or if using Pro CFW, use the installer's uninstall option.
Q: My friend's dad works at Sony and he says that they block custom firmware from accessing the PSP store. Is this true?
A: Kind of. Its a bit cat and mouse with Sony trying to block, and homebrew developers finding a way to bypass it.
Otherwise, buy and download PSN games with your PS3 or Media Go (Try out the version.txt trick, if your PS3 refuses to work with your PSP). You can then transfer them to your PSP via usb.
Q: Running games from my Memory Stick seems kind of slow. Is there anything I can do about it?
A: If you're compressing a game, you could try using a lower level of compression, or none at all. Also try enabling the Memory Stick Speedup in Pro's Recovery Menu, that supposedly helps.
Q: Can I use a PS3 controller with my PSP Go, despite not having a PS3?
A: the MotioninJoy drivers should allow you to do that.
Q: I want to update from an old cfw (5.50 GEN-D3, etc), but it says my firmware version is too high! How is 5.50 bigger than 6.60?
A: You probably have a version.txt loving up things. The safe way would be to use Recovery Flasher to install OFW, but if you're lazy, you can do the slightly dangerous following:
1. access vsh menu by pressing SELECT
2. set "USB DEVICE = memory stick" to USB DEVICE = flash 0"
3. plug in your psp, search for the folder "etc", open it.
4. you'll see "version.txt", open it in a typical text editor.
5. you'll see a number "X.XX" right beside the word "release" at the very top(if you're upgrading, the default numbers would be set to "9.90". change it to "5.50" or something lower than 6.60. save it. unplug.
6. Don't forget to set USB DEVICE back to "memory stick.
After that you should be good to update to 6.60 OFW or whatever your heart desires.
Q: What about the Vita?
A: People have gotten PSP CFW to run in the Vita's psp emulator. Though Sony patches things quickly, so don't expect it to work for you.
Thank forums users Sir Unimaginative and Jetsetlemming, who I copy pasted nice words from.

6.37 came out only a month ago, so its probably not on any mint PSP Gos.

Signing PSP games involves taking a demo header and putting into the game eboot, tricking your PSP into thinking its a demo. The largest demo is around 750 MB, so you're stuck with games smaller than that.
The tool itself has copyrighted material in it and there's not much point to it beyond , so I'm keeping it out of the OP.

If your PSP-1000 has firmware thats less than 6.37, then you can run HEN and install CFW using Hellcat's Recovery Flasher.
If not, then you need to either hardmod a pandora battery, buy one, or have a friend with CFW softmod one for you.
Did you try running the game while in OFW instead of HEN?

Hi. I put 6.35 pro-b on my psp 3000.
You could look for game manual archiving projects. There's one that converts the manuals to the PSP format (so you can read them in game).
Anywhere on the net where I could find suggestions for controller configurations for these games? It's difficult to work out what buttons you need/should map to.

Well, there's a permanent install patch for 6.20 TN-D now. Its supposed to work on unhackable PSPs, but I've seen a few reports of bricking.
Also, Sony fixed the security flaw in 6.3x OFW (the flaw is literally replacing a file with another with the same size), so don't expect this to apply to newer HENs.
Don't try installing it unless you're fine with turning your psp into a paperweight.

|# ¿ Mar 9, 2011 19:30|
You know that FastRecovery app that came with the Pro-B2 update? Use that to restart Pro-B2. You can use the install program, but thats quicker.
Also you might need to grab an updated version of Cwcheat. The program isn't officially updated anymore. But someone always ends up updating it.
Also that other program, TempAR, is usually updated for new firmwares pretty quickly; and it uses Cwcheat's cheat databases (except for PSX games). The activation combo is pretty drat retarded though.
Edit: plugins folder or seplugins? 6.35 Pro requires a folder in the root of your memorycard called seplugins.
|# ¿ Mar 9, 2011 19:42|
Don't bother upgrading unless you buy a game that won't work. And even then, you should probably wait a few days to see if a fix comes out.
No prob.... I guess. However, my question still stands:
You're not missing any features besides the useless poo poo Sony packs in their OFW (comics, some 'mood sensing' music app).
|# ¿ Mar 12, 2011 02:15|
I just looked through your posts to see what emulator you're talking about. I can confirm that one runs like dogshit. The emulator MacGyvers_Mullet mentioned is what I'm using, and I've only had slowdown with some really obscure poo poo (e.g. King of Demons+english patch).
What firmware and emulator are you using? I'm on 6.35 OFW using a signed emulator and I have to crank up the CPU speed to 333 and turn on the video and speed settings to 1.5 just to make things playable, yet alone close to perfect.
Also watch out for snes games with graphics chips built-in, those usually run badly.
|# ¿ Mar 12, 2011 03:55|
You said you have OFW 6.35, so you could always use one of the HENs or Pro-B2; they'll work on any psp model. And they enable kernel mode, which is required for the newer snes and gba emulators.
Is it a special edition by any chance?
I have a PSP 2000 (sticker says 2001) with firmware v6.31, but I updated it since I got it. How do I find out if my PSP had 4.01 when I got it? The box says nothing about it.
Try opening your UMD door and looking in the upper-right corner for any text. some of the motherboards are labeled in that area.
If the PSP is black, and its serial starts with HU2, then it might have an unhackable motherboard. Don't take this as absolute truth though.

Thats most likely* a ta-088v3 motherboard, so you won't be able to install CFW on it.
*I say most likely because it isn't an exact science; Sony doesn't go out and tell us what PSPs have what motherboard, but everything that the scene has seen with a serial over AB022499999 has been unhackable.

ISO ripping from apps doesn't work (yet?), and the VSH Menu ripper cuts off the last sector (which isn't always important, but sometimes it's got active data in it).

Adhoc to USB was updated to work with 6.2x & 6.3x. If you got a windows computer, you can use this with Xlink Kai to play adhoc multiplayer over the internet. of course, only with other people who are using the same setup. Still cheaper than buying a PS3 though.
RemoteJoyLite was also updated for 6.20-3x. With this you can output your PSP's video to your PC monitor and even use a different controller if you like. The drivers are unsigned though, so its a pain in the rear end to use on Windows 7.

That sounds pretty normal for one of those tiff exploits. You might as well update to 6.20 (Not through the official update), run 6.20 HEN, and then use Hellcat's Recovery Flasher to install CFW. Its more steps, but none of that will take 50 tries.

I think error #80020148 means that your firmware doesn't support the game.
I do remember perfectly running my own conversation of Legend of Mana on 5.00 M33 back in the day. So if you got the game in disc form, you may want to try that. And the PSN copy does work perfectly fine with 6.35 Pro-B3, if you decide to upgrade.

those text files (vsh,game,pops) control which plugins are enabled. They're pretty simple to figure out; its the file path of the plugin (ms0:/seplugins/aplugin.prx) and then a 0/1 to indicate whether its enabled or not (0 is disabled).
vsh.txt - is the XMB; that menu interface where you start games, browse webs, music, etc. VSH is Sony's internal codename for it.
game.txt - Its games, homebrew, not playstation stuff.
pops.txt - playstation games.

Use the macro stuff built into Cwcheat, I had to do use turbo for that scene. I ending up using a turbo config somewhere within the millions of files that the Cwcheat download contains.

First off, You can't install CFW on a PSP-3000 (or a Go or some 2000s). Don't even bother trying it. Also Pro-B3 is more of an evolution of the HEN concept than a CFW.
I have a PSP-3000 with 6.35. I installed 6.35 PRO-B3, but after trying to install CFW with Hellcat it notices I have PSP Brite and over 6.20 HEN and refuses to do anything. Is this right? Isnt PRO-B3 a firmware on its own?
Its possible you put your isos in the wrong folder, they need to be in ms0:/ISO

This post was from a bit ago, but PSP States got updated for better PSP Go support.
vkeios, are you running a PSP Go as well? Because it's not doing anything on mine... Then again, I'm noticing a bug that in some PSP games that if I push the volume down button, it freezes with PRO B-3.

Finalburn Alpha got ported. Its an emulator for older arcade hardware (CPS-1,CPS-2,CPS-3, Neogeo, etc).
gpSP-J also got updated. Can't find a changelog, so I don't know whats new.
Both of those apps are signed, so they should work on OFW.
There's a neat little interview with Coldbird and VF on Wololo: part 1, part 2, and part 3.

Hellcat is for flashing a new firmware on. So you can downgrade, upgrade, or install CFW with it as long as you got kernel access (e.g. using a CFW or HEN).
Because my PSP is slim and is on a firmware before 6.37. Does Hellcat downgrade the firmware or something?
The numbering scheme does signify the OFW it should be used with. So only a 6.20 HEN with OFW 6.20.
edit: ^^^^^ Ah, right, so the version of the HEN 6.20/6.35 doesn't have any meaning in regards to my current psp firmware. And i just run the pro hen or something, select downgrade and then install whatever CFW i want?
So you want to use 6.20 TN-D HEN instead (also Hellcat may not work quite right in 6.3x anyways).

Its for restarting 6.35 Pro if you turn your PSP off. Its just got an awkward name that doesn't adequately explain what it is.
Also, what's the fast recovery thing for?
Edit: Its a bit faster than the updater eboot.
