    Hi guys. Bit of a problem. Trying to hack my friend's PSP E1003, running 6.60 apparantly right from the box. Tried using the ChronoSwitch downgrader but was given an error message saying it's running '11g', whatever the balls that means. Wouldn't do anything else and hack failed, thankfully with no side effects. I've been checking out the tutorials but I must be missing something because I'm not seeing the part about hacking this particular setup. So simply put, how do I hack the crap outta this thing, what are the options when I do, and any dangers I need to be aware of? I hacked my own PSP old skool brick easily enough but this wierd thing acts differently and I can't wrap my head around it.

    Help please.

    Which as I understand it needs to be put on through downgrading to 6.20 first. Which is where I'm stuck. Or can I simply put the CFW directly onto the machine, as that'd be a piece of piss.

    There's no reason to downgrade the system - just use 6.60 CFW. Using Fast Recovery is only a slight inconvenience but it's far safer than downgrading the system. It's generally considered unsafe to downgrade a system below the lowest possible out-of-the-box firmware for a given version of the motherboard (in your case, 11g) unless there are reports that it works.

    Go to the System Settings and check your firmware revision one more time, are you sure it's 6.60?

    Alright. Format the memory stick using the PSP, next connect it to a PC (remember to disable Charging via USB), re-download the CFW, unpack it and put the files in the root of the card.

    Still the same message. Not supported and a string of numbers (ox06060100) or something like that. Using the 6.60 PRO C2 files. Those are the correct files, right?

    "Or something like that" doesn't cut it - post the whole error code. By the way, are you using a genuine MSPD or is it an adapter?

    You're welcome. Which version worked by the way? If fix3, I think it'd be best if you tried updating to C2 now. If C2 worked, goodie, I'm glad I could help.

    C2 worked fine, but the ISOs aren't showing up on the menu like they do on mine, and holding the right trigger on bootup doesn't bring up the plugins menu. Any advice?

    You have to use Fast Recovery (comes with the installation files) each time you want to boot CFW - otherwise you're in OFW and ISO's won't show up.

    on newer PSP

    you can NOT use a prema-CFW (only 1000s and older 2000s can use prema, if yo can use a Pandora Battery on the PSP, it can use Prema-CFW)
    just Lite-CFW
    so
    boot->OFW->enter CFW-mode >on full power down or reboot->OFW->renter CFW mode

    Not true.

    PSP-1000 and early PSP-2000 models can use Permanent CFW via cIPL, later PSP-2000, PSP-3000 and PSP Go models can use Permanent CFW via a Power Hack method (Perm Patch), PSP's with the 11g motherboard (E-Street/E-1000) can only use CFW via Fast Recovery. ;)

    OK, got the ISOs to show up, do plugins auto-activate? I can't bring up the menu like I do on my system and I need NPLoader for DLCs.
