    Hey I got a PSP Go a few days ago and am running 6.20 Pro-C2 on it. It works great but I notice about every hour or so the system will freeze. I have CWCheats on for PSX games and TempAR on for PSP games. It's only happened on PSX games, PSP games, and one homebrew app where I accidentally brought up TempAR. Could the plugins be the problem or is there something else amiss?

    Edit- I tried disabling the plugins and I'm still having issues.

    How'd you disable the plugins? What do your POPS.TXT, GAME.TXT, and VSH.TXT files contain now?

    I disabled them in the recovery menu, just the normal extensions on them.

    Oh yeah sorry I'm slow.
    POPS.TXT
    ms0:/seplugins/cwcheat/cwcheatpops.prx 0

    GAME.TXT
    ms0:/seplugins/TempAR/tempar.prx 0

    VSH.TXT has nothing in it

    Hmm.. It IS a psp go. Chances are it sat on a dusty shelf for a few years before you acquired it. It could be dust on a chip internally overheating and causing it to lock up. Did you try violating all the Psp's holes with compressed air? Just a thought.

    Upgrade to 6.60 OFW, downgrade back to 6.20, then reinstall the CFW and see if it does it.

    I already went to 6.20, you think going to 6.60 will help?

    On step six of the guide to mod your psp I might be having a problem, I had it before too...
    "If your PSP successfully rebooted after the test then it worked, run the permanent patch again, but this time press X and then Circle to install"

    The PSP doesn't reboot, it goes back to the home menu but there is no sony logo. Is this normal or does it mean my psp fails the test?

    That's normal, since it just reset VSH instead of the whole system.

    So after working perfectly for the whole day one last gaming session before bed ending in freezing twice while playing The Legend of Dragoon within 10 minutes. I don't know what else to do.

    Hey buddy, i'm afraid it sounds like the internal flash memory is kicking the bucket. Go download H2testw v1.4 and test it. Best to format the card so you can test the whole thing, hopefully you can complete the test without errors.

    oh, you put your PSP in usb mode and run the program through windows/mac to check the internal memory.
