1. Updating your PSP to 6.60:

To begin Download the Official PSP 6.60 firmware and update your PSP.

To update the PSP
 simply extract the PSP folder from the 6.60 update RAR file and move it to your PSP's memory stick.

As you can seeAbov, the PSP\GAME\UPDATE folder contains the EBOOT.PBP update.
2. Installing the custom firmware:

Now Download the PSP 6.60 PRO-C2 custom firmware, inside this RAR file need:

  • FastRecovery
  • CIPL_Flasher

Copy the PROUPDATE to the PSP

 > Game folder on the memory card:you will find 3x folders that you 

Regardless of your PSP model you can safely run the PROUPDATE application:

After running the update press "X" and the custom firmware will install, all been well your PSP will now be running custom firmware until you power it off.

That's it, it's a simple as that your PSP is now running custom firmware and can take advantage of all the additional abilities of a hacked PSP, however read on for information on how to permanently flash the custom firmware if supported by your PSP, or how to enable the custom firmware again if you power your PSP off.

3. Can i permanently flash the custom firmware to my PSP?

Now your PSP
 can run unsigned code we will find out if you can permanently flash the custom firmware to your PSP.

Download PSP Ident

Unzip and copy the program to your PSP
 > Game folder like you did with the custom firmware installer, then load PSP Ident up on your PSP:

You will be presented with lots of information about your PSP, the screenshot below is from my PSP 1000:

We can see that my PSP is a 1.2 the 1 been a PSP 1000 and it has a 79 V3 motherboard, which is capable of having custom firmware permanently flashed to it.

Remember you can only permanently install this firmware on a PSP
 1000 or a PSP 2000 that is not an 88 v3 version.

4. If you can permanently flash custom firmware read on, if not go to 5.

Copy the CIPL_Flasher from the Pro C2 firmware you downloaded to the PSP
 > Game folder on the memory card, then run the application from your PSP to make the custom firmware permanent.

ou can now power your PSP off and still have custom firmware when you power it on again, that's is your PSP is permanently hacked. The only thing that will remove this is by upgrading to a newer official firmware, which at the time of writing does not exist. As its been over 2 years since the last official PSP update was released its unlikely any more system updates will be released by Sony

5. If you can not permanently flash custom firmware:

For PSP's that can not permanently install custom firmware copy the FastRecovery folders to the PSP\Game folder memory card. If you ever power your PSP off simply run this application again to enable custom firmware. The custom firmware will stick until you totally power your PSP off. As mentioned earlier when you normally press the power button the PSP will sleep, to totally power the PSP off you need to hold the power button down for 5 seconds.

6. End result:

*I have  tested and made this firmware permanent on my PSP 1000 and a friends PSP 2000 (Non 88v3). If you are unsure about anything just use the PROUPDATE and enjoy custom firmware. If you ever power your PSP off fully just use the fast recovery program, there is little risk to your PSP doing this.

As 6.60 is the latest official PSP
 firmware you will be able to play any game released to date, you will also be able to connect to the PSN and buy stuff. The best of both worlds I think you will agree .


PSP OFW 6.60(if your already in 6.60 no need to download this)
