Updating psp to 3 52
That being said, since you’re running on a PSP 1000, you have a possibility to install the CFW permanently.This is done by running the tool from the Pro CFW (included in the archive).As a PSP 1000 owner, you can practically install everything you want on your device, and use other techniques such as the Pandora Battery to install a Custom Firmware.If you are interested in the “advanced” Pandora Battery method, please go check that guide, or the “Power users” section below.Assuming you extracted the files correctly, you will see a few new applications in your PSP’s Game menu. You can erase the “Pro Update” folder from your PSP, but keep the “Fast Recovery” one.The one you will want to run in order to install Pro CFW is “Pro Update”. That’s it, I said 3 steps 🙂 Welcome to the world of Custom Firmwares.
However, every time you reboot your console, you will have to reactivate Pro CFW, which is done by running the Fast Recovery tool from your PSP’s Game menu, and takes literally 5 seconds.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.this was important because hackers figured out how to get homebrew applications (emulators, games, etc.) running on devices with firmware 1.5. psps, and this took away the ability to run the homebrew stuff as sony worked quickly to patch holes that were cracked.since there were never any new features or real reason to perform this update i skipped it and kept my device at 1.5.
