Updating software on psp
Your Play Station 3 is not connected to the internet? You can download and transfer the update file (PS3UPDAT.
PUP) using a compatible storage device such as Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, a USB key (FAT32) or PSP.
Here are few tips to get it working: Memory Stick and load Hellcat’s Recovery Flasher. Then you will be asked if you want to reset your settings. Then it will start install Custom Firmware on your PSP.
When it loads, choose I agree to the notice informing you that the program touches internal flash. When all done, press the X button and turn ON your PSP manually.
iirc you can bypass that by running the ME installer with the 6.61 pbp either in root or in the installer folder but if that fails you need to go into flash0 and in vsh there should be a version.txt, in it it will say 9.99 and you change to be anything lower then 6.61.
Software updates may include security patches, new or revised settings and features, and other items, which will change your current operating system. If an update is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged, and the system may require servicing or exchange.
This update was strictly to tighten security (disable homebrew) Sony needs to figure out a way to allow homebrew, because lately homebrew is the only thing keeping the PSP alive.This document, titled "How To Install a PS3 Update Via a USB Key," is available under the Creative Commons license.Any copy, reuse, or modification of the content should be sufficiently credited to CCM (https://ccm.net/).Game developers are loosing interest and if it wasn't for DAX's CFW and the homebrews I would have never got a PSP myself. Surprisingly, they are still able to run HBs and downgrade their versions.I'm stickin with 3.90 (M33-3) because there is NO good reason to update to this firmware Wonderful device, lousy support I downloaded v3.40 and my PSP works as it did with the previous version. I would like to see some browser tweaks/improvements, and maybe the ability to stream audio/video by embedding a player that will stream content from the Web. I'm amazed that sony didn't shut out those threads.
