Downgrade PSP 6.35,6.38,6.39 and Install CFW

Introduction: Downgrade PSP 6.35,6.38,6.39 and Install CFW

Hello All! This is my guide on how to downgrade to 6.20 and install cfw (Custom Firmware) on your PSP 1000,2000,3000 or go. This works on
6.35,6.38,6.39 BUT NOT 6.37!
You will need:
6.20 update
PSP downgrader
6.20 CFW

Step 1: First Things First

Unzip to desktop. Now take the 6.39  Downgrader and put it into PSP/GAME and Put the 6.20 update EBOOT  into PSP/GAME/UPDATE.
Also it says 6.39 but it still works on the others. Now place the PRO UPDATE (CFW) into PSP/GAME also. But if you want permanent psp cfw then put the permanent one into PSP/Game too.

Step 2: Starting the Downgrader

Now unplug your psp and load the downgrader and After you downgrade to 6.20, you will get a BSOD (saying that your system information is corrupted), this is OK, just click circle to reset your system information and you will be back to normal.

Step 3: CFW

Now that you have 6.20 now load the pro update. Also if you want permanent then AFTER you load the pro update load the permanent update.

    A very useful instructable for those which have had trouble downgrading in the past. Though the links do need revising for the Official Firmware (OFW). Also there is a more comprehensive guide here But all in all, well done.
