    I have a PSP Go with firmware 6.30. What are my options for installing custom firmware?

    I love the GO. I'm surprised more people don't like it. I would like to run some emulators and ISOs. Running ISOs is mainly because the system has terrible batterly life and I need to do anything I can to extend it. I have all 3 previous versions of the PSP and over 100 games. So I can rip my own ISOs no problem.

    Please point me in the right direct. Thanks in advance for your help. [​IMG]

    update to official firmware 6.35 and get the 6.35 pro-b5 cfw


    btw: why should isos use less battery power than normal games on a psp go?

    EDIT: HAHA DISREGARD THIS I DIDN'T READ

    That said, can't the user downgrade ot 6.20 to use 6.20 PRO-B5, which has the added benefit of being a permanent install?

    Apparently I was having a brief lapse of retardation when I posted this topic. I also have a PSP 3000 that I would like to hack. I've heard the process was the same for the PSP Go and the 3000. I was getting the two confused.

    I don't really follow the scene as much as I should. I did my own firmware downgrade on my PSP 1000. That was easy. Downgrading the later systems feels a little more complicated, and more risky. I wouldn't do anything to screw with my precious PSP. Its the most used gaming device I have ever owned. I just don't use the PSP Go as much as I would like. I really need to blast the dust of this thing because its honestly one of the greatest portables ever made. (*Unless you like Monster Hunter.)

    What is the easiest and quickest way to get my system running homebrew and ISOs? And will I be able to transfer the ISOs and memory files from my other system? I thought I heard game saves were universal.

    Rydian, I hope you know that when 6.20 was never on the psp, the psp will brick. So if he bought it with Firmware 6.30 and youre telling him to downgrade, you will brick his psp xD Just sayin [​IMG]

    edit: oh ok, I read that the downgrader doesnt start if it detects an uncompatible psp [​IMG] some kind of safety stop [​IMG]

    Not only that, but ALL PSP GOS WERE UNDER ONE PRODUCTION RUN.

    Meaning they are all, in every way, they same hardware and software.

    If you get one, it CAN be downgraded to 6.20 if you can run the downgrader.

    At least until further notice (LOL WE MAKIN THE GO AGAIN 2012).

    Yeah the Go was bought so little that there's only one motherboard model of it that people ever found, and people have yet to report a Go that comes with later than 5.70.

    Which is partially hilarious...

    Seems like it, but I kept my Go on 6.35 and just installed PRO-B on that. I've heard rumors that there is a slight risk of bricking your PSP if you make 6.20 PRO permanent.

    But can't you do a perma patch on all PSP's that are on 6.20 ?
    Or some have bad mb although a good fw ?

    The ones that currently have perma patches are 6.20 TN-D, 6.20 PRO-B4 and 6.20 PRO-B5.
    I think Total_Noob bricked his psp in an attempt to perma patch 6.20 TN-E, so there's none for 6.20 TN-E.

    Stick with 6.20 PRO-B5 if you want perma patch. Theres password protection and a recovery menu functions under settings on the XMB in 6.20 TN-E.

    Some later 3000 models have a motherboard that can't have 6.20 because they came with something later.

    You can't downgrade a PSP past what it came with.

    If it is currently on 6.20 you can apply the PRO-B permanent patch on all , A to Z ?

    It should be like that, but just in case it's not the patch offers to test first.

    After all, Sony doesn't tell us about their new motherboard revisions, we have to find them out when people start getting them.

    I don't believe it unless solid proof is shown. That means within the last week or two, they have made another batch. That conflicts with the previous announcement that they are not making any more...

    Either way, that's great. it means the newest shipment is STILL hackable. Stupid though, yet another reason I don't believe you is because if they are taking the time to make another batch wouldn't they make it a later OFW?

    Or did you buy it used or off Ebay? Refurbished? THAT would explain it.
