    I just got a Final Fantasy PSP and I was wondering: is it possible to load custom firmware in it?

    can anyone point me in the right direction?

    sorry if I'm being too n00b

    btw, I havent updated the firmware to play Dissidia

    It most likely can't have CFW installed. Aren't those PSP 3000s? If so, then I know you can use ChickHen or whatever its called.

    What firmware is it currently on? That's the determining factor. 5.03 and below you can run a temporary one, above that and no there's nothing for you in the way of an alternative firmware, at least for the time being.

    Dissidia does not require 5.5.. I run it just fine on 5.00m33-6

    Yeah, Dissidia doesn't have firmware 5.55. It is playable.

    i know it doesnt require it... ive played it on my m33, but at my sources it said you had to edit something to get it to work, although i never did it, i obviously cant give linky though...


    ah i found the nfo, that should be safe to post

    Dissidia runs fine and unaltered on 5.00M33-6 so modifying the version txt is unnecessary. Just rip your UMD and use the ISO from that and it'll be fine.

    thanks ppl

    the PSP had 5.01 fw, so I used the installer on the link I posted earlier

    believe it or not, I havent tried playing the original Dissidia after flashing, so I'll try that later and report

    edit: Dissidia works without a problem

    funny how they try to trick you into updating to 5.50 when you load it in the original firmware
