    I just got a psp 3000 with 6.60. I put Pro B9 on it. Is there a later firmware or is this version ok. I also downloaded 29284-660PRO-C.fix3.rar Should I use that? Since I'm only able to use these FW's temporary can I just go to the new version (copy folders to memory stick) or do I have to do any kind of uninstall before going to a new version?

    Also, per the guide I used, I put 2 folders (proupdate and fastrecovery) on the memory stick. Do I need the fastrecovery folder? What does it do anyway? If I'm never going to use it, I'd rather it now show up as a menu option under the memory card that it could accidentily get run by someone using the console.

    Final question.

    Besides running psp stuff what else should I get for this console? I've never really run any homebrew or emulators. Is there something that I really should do? Just want to get the most out of this thing.

    Yeah, PRO-C is the latest. You'll want to run the installer for B9 and choose to uninstall before going to C, since they do come some files to the flash.

    Fastrecovery is a faster way of booting into hacked mode.

    Emulators are listed here.

    Thanks,

    I uninstalled b9 and put the new version on and it works just fine. When would I acutally use the fastrecovery? When I'm in a power off situation should I be running the pro update? I'm kind of unsure about this.

    Fast recovery is for when you turn the psp back on, the pro update is just for uninstalling the CFW if you ever need that.

    FastRecovery will restart the CFW just like ProUpdate, except it's faster and you don't need to confirm any additional button presses, you just run it and it starts doing it.

    Excellent

    Does this mean I can remove the pro update folder so I don't see the icon or does it need to be there for normal operation? Just trying to get things as simple looking as possible.

    You can remove the main proupdate folder. In fact you technically don't need any of the PRO folders for PRO to run, but you do need FastRecovery or something to start it.
