    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.

    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
