Updating hacked psp firmware
If (though this is very unlikely) your PSP is still equiped with FW version 1.00, you’ll have to upgrade to 1.50.
To do that, download the update file here and follow the instructions in the file description. Your firmware version will be stated right between your MAC Address and your Nickname. People found out that it was possible to run tiny bits of code through tiff files.
In that situation nothing bad will happen if you kill the download halfway.
Then all you have to do is copy the downloaded firmware package onto your Sony PSP and run it.
If your PSP crashes, do a hard reboot and try again. Sony didn’t like this though, so they made sure this wasn’t possible with all next releases and/or firmwares.
At one moment, you’ll get an error message as shown below. You’ll also be able to view the files contained within the folder now. Go to Game - Memory Stickâ„¢ and open the installer (1.50DDfor TA-079~081FW2.80PSP). I only suggest this method if you actually own this game, don’t go running to the store to get a copy.
Now, go to Game - Memory Stickâ„¢ and open ‘PSPâ„¢ Update ver 1.50’You’ll see an error at the end of the update. Congratulations, you’ve now got Firmware 1.50, Memory Stickâ„¢ and open ‘PSPâ„¢ Update ver 2.80’. Move the contents from the MS_ROOT folder to your PSPs root (this is the main folder). PBP and move it to X: PSPGAMEUPDATE (with X: being your psp). Open the 2.80 Easy Downdater installation file and select your PSP’s root. First we’re going to need to patch the files with e Loader.
This method also uses the tiff exploit, which enables small pieces of code to be run through tiff files. Also move the contents of the ta82MS_ROOT folder to your PSP’s root. First of all, we’re going to activate HEN (Homebrew ENabler). At the end of the installation, you’ll be prompted to press X, after which your PSP will restart. To do so, go to Photo - Memory Stickâ„¢, and hold the start button while hovering over the e Loader folder. If so, just do a hard reboot by holding the power switch and try again.
Due to this (and probably some other reasons as well), Sony has been trying to repress homebrew as much as possible.
We will be posting a simple step-by-step guide, so that nearly everyone will be able to find his or her way through the bulk of information available on the web.
LEGAL DISCLAIMER Using these methods is 100% legal (although Sony obviously doesn’t like it), but it CAN brick your PSP (there is a way to unbrick them, we’ll be discussing that next time).
If you have a higher firmware, don’t despair, as we’ll be discussing them in part two (a little more complicated though).
As there’s a lot of different variables and different ways to work with them, we’ll be sending you up and down through this guide to the steps that matter for you.
