    Hi everyone. I recently acquired a PSP phat from a flea market which I think it has mounted a CFW since the select menu brings up a menu which says "M33 VSH menu".

    System information says that's currently running 5.00 M33-4 so i wanted to upgrade to 6.6x but i tried both OFW 6.60 and 6.61 but the process remains stuck at the PSP logo when I try to run the FW upgrader from the card. I looked around but I could't find much information. I also checked version.txt in the flash 1 memory and looks regular.

    I went on to try with Chronoswitch and also it's stuck at the PSP logo at start. Anything that I tried to start from the memory card has the same behaviour.

    Then I tried to start the upgrade right from the Recovery menu at boot, but when i try to boot /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP it just won't start.

    What's next? Pandora battery? Any other suggestion? Thanks

    I see that you are my compatriot. And I see that they haven't helped you yet. Unfortunately I have another cfw (6.61 pro-C f3) and having no experience of that, I can hardly help you. Is your cfw temporary or permanent? Have you tried turning the console off (not just paused) by holding the switch for a few seconds, and then turning it back on, if so it returns to the original ofw (if it were temporary)?
    Sorry if my suggestion is a bit trivial.

    Ehehe non ti preoccupare, it helps bumping up the post :D

    Today I actually managed to install ofw 5.0 using a Pandora battery. But surprise surprise still has exactly the same problem and the 6.x upgrader won't run. So it might be a hardware issue? I really have no clue here.

    If 7 days have not yet passed since the purchase, you could return it and get a refund, and this also applies to used items. On 'subito(dot)it' you will find several in excellent condition at a low price. I bought there last year a PSP 3000 (with ofw 6.6), from a boy who wanted to get rid of it, at only 30€ including shipping costs: it works great!

    Sounds bricked. I'd say the pandemic, I mean Pandora Battery and maybe the magic mem stick. Or the Home, Start and Select when turning it on.
