    I just got a psp and was wondering if I can install custom firmware on it permanently.

    Here are its specifics
    Firmware out of the box: 6.30
    Model: Brite 4001
    Module: 04g
    Motherboard: TA-093 v2
    PSP3000
    I am currently running 6.35 and temporary PRO-B

    Not sure whether to upgrade to 6.60 or downgrade to 6.20? I hear they allow for permanent instalation.

    6.60's perm won't work on a 3K (but 6.20's perm will). You can try the downgrade, your model should definitely be early enough for it.

    The downgrade launches Sony's official 6.20 installer.

    Not sure on that specific revision, but it's worth a try. If it won't downgrade, then the updater will just fail to launch and flash0 won't be written to.

    CWCheats works fine on temp.

    Downloaded "8746-CWCheat v0.2.3" I assume I make an "seplugin" folder on the root and copy the contents of "install" into it and go into the plugin menu? There are two install folders "INSTALL" and "INSTALL_317" which one do I use?
