Picture of Installing Custom Firmware on a PSP
Okay guys so this one may actually be somewhat useful. I found my old PSP and decided I'd put some emulators on it, SNES, Game Boy, etc. One of the things you need to do beforehand is install custom firmware on your PSP. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Check Your Current Firmware Version

The custom firmware you put in your PSP depends on what firmware you currently have installed. To see what you have, go to "Settings» System Settings» System Information". I had version 6.60 (the most recent). After this, plug the PSP into your computer.

If a PSP shows it is 6.20 PRO-B10, does it mean it is hacked?

Be careful installing a full (permanent) firmware to the 2000, early model 2000's are usually okay, but the later models have a different motherboard. If you have a later model 2000, installing a full cfw could, but not always, lead to a bricked psp. This indefinitely goes for all 3000's as well. It's best to use a lite cfw. But the 1000's can get full cfw without getting bricked, unless you do something wrong, which is pretty hard to do.

Here's some answers for ya!
1) You don't have to reinstall it. Just go to the 'Game' then 'Memory Stick' and launch it.
2) I had a PSP 2000, but I'm fairly sure it worked on all of them. The 2000 is the most popular model for modders so I'd stick with that just to be safe.

Hope this helped!!!

Hello jasonZak, I'm thinking about buying a PSP, so I have a few questions about PSP modding. 1. What happens if you turn off the PSP? Do you have to reinstall the mod every time? 2. Does this work on all PSP models (1000, 2000, 3000, etc.) Thanks for the guide!
