ok so recently i bought a used psp-3004. I have been trying to update it from 6.20 (says this in system information) and have been only getting a message that update failed i am in suspision that the previous owner tried cracking it but had no luck. I tried using chronoswitch downgrade but no luck. any ideas on how to solve this problem?

Hello.:)

Did you use an Sony Memory Stick or an MicroSDHC Adaptor ?

Thank you.:)

I use a MicroSDHC Adaptor because i don't have any way to putting stuff on and off a Sony Memory Stick

Thank you.:)

That is maybe an potential source of error.:(
Did you re-format the microSD Card ?

Did the VSH Menu appears when you press SELECT on the Main Menu/PSP Screen ?

Did you get an Error Code/Message on the Update ?
Is the Update starting and then stucks ?

I don't know if the microSD Card formated but i did format it on the psp like the format Memory Stick option

What is the VSH Menu?

The Update starts normaly but after the black screen a message pops up saying "The update cannot be started. The data is corrupted. (IDXFFFFFFFF)"

I only know this Error when downgrading the PSP Firmware.:(

Maybe if you like you can read through this and try to Install the Original FW 6.20 again and then try to Update.

Quote from this:
Use this.
PSPident 0.75
to check you FUSE CFG. if it is 0x00002A00
you can downgrader using this 6.20 Downgrader

and If your FuseCFG 0×00003300, 0x00003B00 or other
must use this 6.20 Pre-downgrader
before the 6.20 downgrader



For the Original Firmware 6.20 please use Google and search for "sony psp firmware 6.20 download".:)

What is the VSH Menu?

If some Custom Firmware is still there maybe the Menu appears.:unsure:

Thank you.:)

Please hold the RIGHT Shoulder Button on Powering on the PSP.
If a Custom Firmware is still there you get into the Recovery Menu.


Thank you.:)

    It's just a repurposed black berry lol

    @K3N1, The hardware is based on the Dingoo handhelds of the past. Uses the same interface than anything.

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    There's lots of emulators and mods you can do on those devices.
  • Shape @ Shape:
    I loved the dingoo. I wish it had caught on more as it's own device since devs could develop apps and stuff for it though.

    That's just a BlackBerry screen, not the entire phone.

    But still very funny to see this in a commercial product.

    Guess they couldn't be bothered to fork out a new LCD screen of their own.

    They probably manufacture their own screen but why if older tech quantity is just laying around unused

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    They don't want it to go to waste, probably that's why.

    Source ports are hard enough, but sourcing parts in 2022? Impossible.

    Emulation doesn't need high end power houses to be enjoyable

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    If its to do with hardware from 80s to early 90s then that's fine, but for the 64-bit systems then that could be an issue.
  • Shape @ Shape:
    Yeah! All you need to enjoy some emulation is an old PC and some mind altering substances!

    Not really I wouldn't even consider the SteamDeck a powerhouse tbh

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    @Shape, Don't know about that last part, but still, a PC with decent specs should do the job.

  • Shape @ Shape:
    I consider the steamdeck a powerhouse because it can run Unity in windows mode without crashing repeatedly...

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    It just has bare minimum requirements to make it enjoyable and a fair MSRP which you can get a decent pc for $400 still

    lol I don't do drugs

    $400 is really nothing when it comes to hardware

    Back in the 90s you could expect to drop at least a grand for what was considered bare bones back then
