    So I'm buying my friends PSP but I have to wait for when he gets back from holidays to see what model it is but I know for sure that it's at least a 2000. SO what's the best cfw?

    6.20 PRO-B4 in my opinion, the only thing it lacks that most people care about is some PSX compatibility, we're hoping that get fixed soon. Other than that, a standard 5.x CFW with Prome-4 works.

    6.20 PRO-B4 has PSN access. While there's a plugin for 5.x firmwares, it's buggy with the shop.

    You can install a new CFW without it. Use Hellcat's Recovery Flasher to install OFW 5.00, then run the 6.20 update (DO NOT use the internet update, you should download the 6.20 update on your computer and put it on your memory stick), then run the 6.20 PRO-B4 hack (and then optionally the permanent hack to make it permanent so you don't need to re-run it each time you start up).

    Why do i need to be on OFW 5.00 before going to OFW 6.20 ? Is there any chart with info like which CFW is permanent or not , on which PSP does it work , with what MB ..etc ?

    You don't. Just running the 6.20 OFW eboot should work.

    If he is at 5.50GEN he will have a problem. Since they have edited version.txt to make the psp think the version 9.90 is installed. So, it refuses to install the update (saying there is a new version already installed), unless you edit the version.txt.

    I updated from 5.00 M33-6 to OFW 6.20 , then installed the PRO-B4 but i have a problem , the permanent patch doesn't work.
    I go to the point where i'm asked to test the fake vsh then exits back to XMB . After a restart homebrew doesn't work ,i have to relaunch the CFW . So the permanent patch didn't work

    It's a PSP 2004 with 8A code..it's pretty old

    Also , what does the Fast Recovery do ?

    He doesn't or that wouldn't have been my reply.

    Fast Recovery is like a quick boot into the firmware.

    Well, not really. They just can't use it.

    Make sure you have all your plugins disabled. I had troubles like that and was because Game Categories was enabled. Needless to say, I disabled all the plugins ang got it wrking flawlessly.

    My vote goes for 6.20 Pro-B4 as well.

    I was using 6.35 Pro-B3, however without the ability of a PP, it just did not fee "hacked" too me. Maybe it is just the inner nerd in me, haha.

    Anyway, I would suggest the 6.20, as already stated not all PSX games will work, but I have yet to run into a problem with this yet.

    Jut remember to be careful while you are hacking, while it is rather difficult to brick a PSP, it is still possible, and if you are getting the 300X series, there is no going back from a brick (more often then not).

    Hope you get what you want out of your PSP experience, They are amazing little machines.

    6.20 PRO-B5 seems to be out. Not sure if that fixes those PSX games.
    Upgraded from 5.00 M33-4 -> 5.00 OFW -> 6.20 OFW -> 6.20 PRO-B5 and got scared when hellcat recovery said I won't be able to install CFW without Pandora battery [​IMG]

    I just hope that Store works now.

    PSN is offline today. You can't access the store anyway (although it is working fine on 6.20 PRO)
