    My friend has a Phat I think on 5.5 or something. What firmware will it be at after an update?

    If you update via Media Go or Software Update on your PSP, it will be 6.39

    If you download an update and transfer to your PSP, it can be anything 5.5+.

    Thank you(: why does it say in the forum that there's a 6.40 and above? Like the post the tells you if you can or can not hack it.

    I'm actually not sure. I know 6.40 is on the horizon and is showing up already (I think), but that's about it. Anything higher than 6.40, I couldn't begin to say.

    There's no way the PSP will update past 6.39, right?

    If you're worried about it, just have your friend download the 6.39 firmware from Sony's site and update via the EBOOT they give you. Regardless, it will tell you what the latest firmware is that the PSP can download before you say yes or no to the update.

    So far, there's no official 6.40 firmware for psp, but I doubt it's coming because Sony's more busy on other stuff? [​IMG]
    But, well, who knows? [​IMG]

    EDIT: never mind. found some extra info on it. But you can use the method below to update to any OFW your friend wants. [​IMG]
    EDIT2: removed link. thanks, prowler_

    you can download every OFW from here (you can chose the firmware from the drop-down menu on the right). Place the EBOOT.PBP of whichever firmware your friend choses into *drive*:\PSP\GAME\UPDATE (make the folders if you don't have them).

    6.40 is probably just for Gundam Memories, it's happened before with other games like Monster Hunter 3rd.

    Also you can't link to that website.

    I mentioned 6.40 and above because there's no hacks for 6.40 and above, technically. [​IMG]
    And it's going to come out eventually. When the PSP dies I'll stop listing the "next" version of course.

    Updating online will give you the latest public firmware, you almost never want that.
