    Hey guys. Gonna cut to the chase. My friend wants his psp 3000 to be flashed with a cfw. I've been doing some reading on the stickies and everything seems simple enough, except one key thing. We don't know if his psp is able to have version 6.20. The version he currently has is 6.36 but since he's gotten it from a friend, he doesn't know exactly what it had when bought new. Furthermore he does not have the original box it came in etc. Now it did say i could use the psp module checker to check motherboard version and other stuff, but apparently you already need a cf installed to be able to use it :/.

    So any of you guys got any suggestions on how i should solve this? Is there any other way to check if its downgradable to 6.20? Any help is really apreciated. Thanks ^^

    Upgrade to 6.39. Run Pro CFW on it. Then check the System Information in the PSP's menu.

    Anything less than Module 7g can go to 6.20, otherwise it can't.

    True, but he's gonna need to upgrade to get cfw anyway so he mind as well knock out two birds with one stone.
    Of course, if he is impatient, he can use the checker. Either way works. [​IMG]

    The installation of the cfw went all good and well but there's one thing however. It doesnt seem to find the isos. Tried putting it in the game folder, the psp folder and the root of the memory to no avail. Do i have to create an iso file or something for it to recognize the games or something?

    Create a folder called ISO on root.
