    Hello, first off, let me apologize if this has been asked many times before. With that said, let me get into my question.

    Although I'm extremely late to the party, I recently purchased a PSP, as I was bored with my other handhelds.
    I've used GBAtemp before to homebrew my Wii, so naturally this was the first place I decided to check on how to jailbreak my PSP.

    I found this guide: http://gbatemp.net/topic/291169-hack-every-psp-up-to-firmware-660/ and it seems to be reliable and detailed.
    However, I couldn't find whether or not it was possible to downgrade the 6.60 firmware to 6.20 so I could use 6.20 PRO as opposed to 6.35 or 6.39. (I want to have it permanently instead of re-doing it everytime I boot the PSP).

    My PSP's Model is 1001
    And I'm currently running the 6.60 firmware.

    So, am I able to downgrade from 6.60 to 6.20 using the downgrader used in the guide?


    Again, I'm sorry if this has been asked before.
    Thanks!

    You don't need to downgrade a 1000 from 6.60 to run a permanent CFW. Install 6.60 PRO and run the cIPL installer and it gives you what you want.

    tbh it's quite lucky for you to be able to buy a 1001 at this time :O

    mine is also a 1001, and you don't need to downgrade it, just install 6.60 Pro (either B10 or C),
    after the installation completed, run the CIPLFlasher, and voila, you have the permanent one :D

    anyways, the only downside of 1001 is, it can't use the Prometheus Online from Pro-C .___.

    Thanks for the information guys. I was successfully able to jailbreak my PSP and thanks to your answers, it's permanent!

    EDIT - Would one of you happen to know if there is a guide detailing things like, Installing Custom Theme's or Emulators and ISO's?
