    Thinking about getting a PSP which one is the best to get (and perhaps easiest to install things on)?

    If you're able to use infinity firmware, anything but the street (euro only model) seems to work fine. It's a bit convoluted, but it's working flawlessly for me after all said and done.

    +1 on what coderzer0 said, Infinity 6.61 is the way to go (unless maybe you're on a 1000 or one of the "unhackable" 2000s), the install process is , as mentioned, a little more complicated, but the end result is the best CFW solution for the PSP in terms of compatibility and stability, I have it on both my PSPGo and 2000, though my 1000 is still on 6.60 PRO.

    Good guide here: http://hackinformer.com/PlayStationGuide/PSP/DEVICE_PSP.html

    Hi everyone, I have a question:

    i am following this guide:
    http://hackinformer.com/PlayStationGuide/PSP/tutorials/how_to_install_661_infinity.html

    I am stuck at step 4: Step 4: Flashing Infinity firmware to the PSP, I already copied the DATA.MFC to the FLASHER folder.
    I then click start and agree to the terms, but when the loading reaches "Loading special updater modules 5%" the PSP shuts down...

    Anyone know why this could be?

    ==edit==

    nvm

    Hi, sorry to disturb I'd like some help !

    My friend bought a PSP in version 6.3X, I wanted to download the last update for putting a temporary firmware to 6.60 and this way be safe.
    But in the official website, it's about a version 6.61. So how can I do ?

    Thanks !

    He had a 6.30 I think I don't remember because i've found that I wanted with 6.60 rather than 6.61

    what he meant by version is, what kind of PSP your friend has?
    The phat 1000? The sleek 2000? The slim 3000? The small Go? Or the piece of shit Street version?

    Hey everyone, for some reason my PSP 3000 04G simply won't downgrade to 6.20 from 6.60.
    Tried using the chronoswitch 7 and still no use, it says ' A later version of the system software is already installed.
    There is no need to update. (CAAFFFFFCF7) "
    Huge bummer here guys, I have no idea why it does not work, I tried with 2 downloads of the offical firmware, and with 3 different downgraders and none of them seem to work. Does anyone have an idea how to help this newbie?

    I forgot
    IIRC, Chrono had a problem downgrading that specific PSP 3000 board from 6.60 to 6.20. You have to downgrade to 6.39 using Chrono, then use this downgrader to go from 6.39 to 6.20: http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=6403&sid=545a2495b24149b852162745f0089fcd

    Kinda silly, but supposedly it works lol.

    Thanks for help kind sir, but I managed to get a permanent cfw on 6.61 and avoided downgrading entirely. Anyways, more than pleased with my dirt cheap PSP :)

    I followed the softmod guide here in an attempt to be able to run homebrew on my psp 3000.

    I was originally at 6.60 and used ChronoSwitch to downgrade to 6.20 but I wasn't able to get 6.20 PROC2 to install, I just got a perpetual black screen, so I wanted to try and restore it back to 6.60

    I now believe that I'm stuck as when I try to upgrade back to 6.60, it says the data is corrupted. I tried running Frostgater's TA-095 Upgrader and it says it's corrupted. I tried re-running 6.20 PROC2 and I just get a black screen. Can't get online, can't run homebrew, can't upgrade/restore back to the original state, it seems like my psp is now sort of soft bricked. If it helps, when I go into System Settings, it says I'm on 6.20. I can't run PSPident 0.74 either, it says the data is corrupted.

    In another post someone had mentioned trying Infinity Firmware Builder but it just says that it's corrupt as well.

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Slowly coming to terms that my psp may be in an update loop. :( Thanks for your time.

    I remember following your threads to softmod my psp year or so ago and it worked like a charm (still a charm to this day)! Rich information and detailed postings! Thank you so much :)

    Any chance the original FAQ on the front will be updated to reflect the whole Infinity Hybrid firmware?
