    Hi all.

    I'm trying to update my newly bought second-hand psp to 6.20 PRo-B-4 permanent, but whenever I try to update I get the error that my version is 9.90 already. I tried mounting flash0, but instead I just get the memory stick in recovery. Any help?

    Greetings,
    Jelmew

    Edit:
    Gen recovery menu. M33(something) firmware.
    Edit2: It worked out, thanx for the help

    Bring up the VSH menu on your XMB by hitting select and then scroll down to USB Device (currently: Memory Stick) and change it to Flash0
    Connect your PSP to your PC with a USB cable, make sure USB mode is enabled and then go to the VSH folder, then to the etc folder.
    Find version.txt. Make sure its not read-only, and open it up...it'll read 9.90 or whatever somewhere. Change it to a firmware number below 6.20

    Actually change it to :

    release:5.00:
    build:2740,0,3,1,0:builder@vsh-build6
    system:46876@release_500,0×05000010:
    vsh:P6264@release_500,v46652@release_500,20081010:
    target:1:WorldWide

    Easier option -- couldn't he just use Hellcat's Recovery Flasher to update his firmware? You know... so noobs won't brick messing with their Flash0.

    Odds of bricking by changing a txt file? Practically zero....besides, if there's any way not to have to download large files (to me a 26Mb firmware eboot is big!) then i'd opt for it.

    Trust me... version.txt is noob friendly as hell, but uh... some people STILL screw it up. [​IMG]

    And he said in the first line he is TRYING to update. Wouldn't that mean he has to download the eboot anyways? lol.

    Well, I managed to mount flash0 and change version.txt. Don't worry about me bricking, I'm watching my step.
