    Before Installation

    -PSP Street E1000 will brick with Infinity. It does not support 6.31. https://www.lolhax.org/2017/09/25/6-61-infinity-an-explanation/
    -1000, 2000: use cIPL (CIPL_Flasher folder app) instead. ID motherboard: PSPident v0.75 https://www.pspdevwiki.com/wiki/Motherboards#Tachyon_.2F_Baryon_.2F_Pommel.27s
    -LCFW must be reapplied every time the PSP is turned off/restarted.
    -Installer v1.0: PSPs <6.61 may brick on install, so update beforehand.

    Installation Steps

    0. Update to 6.61. Remove any UMD from the disc drive. Turn off or remove any plugins/.PRXs
    1. Copy /PSP/GAME/ folders for LCFW and Infinity onto PSP memory card.
    2. Place the respective 631.PBP and 661.PBP into the MAKER folder.
    3. Install and run PRO or ME LCFW.
    4. Run Infinity Firmware Builder (MAKER folder app).
    5. If successful, there will be a DATA.MFC file in the MAKER folder.
    6. Copy DATA.MFC to the FLASHER folder. (DATA.MFC is unique for your device. Never use this file on a different PSP.)
    7. Run Infinity Firmware Flasher (FLASHER folder app).
    8. After this, your device will reboot and you'll be in Infinity. (An error screen after the process means that it worked.)
    9. Turn on PRO or ME LCFW.
    10. Activate the permanent patch in the Infinity Bootloader Configuration (STAGE folder app).


    Optional: 6.60 plugins on 6.61 https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20...x.org/2016/02/14/how-to-6-60-plugins-on-6-61/

    Yes, it will work with ME; just swap out the PRO files with the ME ones. I recommend updating to OFW 6.61, however, you do not have to. This excludes PSPs 07g/09g on OFW 6.31 or lower.

    I recommend not using Infinity for PSP 100X. Use the Custom IPL (CIPL) flasher that comes with PRO/ME CFW.

    Earlier Pro-C versions were buggy with official/unofficial PS1 games. Also, it supports .ZSO format for games. The PSP game Brandish: The Dark Revenant was the cause of the update, so I'm assuming it can't be played on 6.60 and below without version.txt spoofing.

    Gambia, The
    Thank you for this tutorial. I just updated a PSP 2000 and a PSP 3000 to 6.61PRO Infinity.

    Just one thing that was not clear to me.
    You wrote Update to 6.61 OFW. Ok Did that, but after that the builder etc did not start. So maybe add the info, that you have to launch the (temp) CFW before you can continue.

    This is what I did. . Please help me if I made a mistake. I am kinda noob :).
    downloaded
    *PSP Infinity CFW [installer-1.0] [config-0.39],
    *PSP 100X, 200X, 300X, & Go LCFW [6.61-PRO CFW-2015-02-14_MOD-2015-03-33-F] (I missed this the first time cuz it had psp go was kinda stumped where the LCFW thats it I think.) ,
    *PSP 100X 200X 300X OFW 6.61.
    *PBP,PSP 100X 200X 300X OFW 6.31.PBP,
    Extracted them all into the root folder of the psp. I figered it would just put the files in the right spot cuz the folders are the same name and I was correct double-checked and they were in the right spot.
    Booted up my psp then went to memory card and booted up 6.61 PROMOD-C2p VCFW (I guessed cuz the end of it was CFW) there 2 others with the same picture
    Ran it then psp reset
    Run Infinity Firmware Builder (this took a hour a 2. I got scared cuz it was at 40% for a long time. But it finished.
    went to the maker folder (:\PSP\GAME\MAKER)
    copyed DATA.MFC to FLASHER folder (L:\PSP\GAME\FLASHER)
    Booted up psp again in memory card and Ran Infinity Firmware Flasher (didn't take that long)
    It reboot but then ran the game for some reason in the psp it. make sure you don't have a game inserted and I didn't get a error cuz of this.
    launched 6.61 PROMOD-C2p VCFW again it then reset
    went to the memory card and picked Infinity Bootloader Configuration, in it moved to the left and there were 2 things. One was PRO CFW by Coldbird and the other ME CFW by near0n. I picked PRO CFW. I can always change it later if the other one is better.
    Looked at zfreeman post and tring to follow the link.
    Copied the plugins in the .zip and put them in seplugins folder.
    Now I don't get what to do for number 2. there is no VSH.TXT, GAME.TXT, POPS.TXT files that I can find and am I supposed to put a space 1 after the 660_plugins_on_661.prx file?
    Whatever I made a ISO folder in the root directory and put a ISO in it and it plays fine. Please help me if I made a mistake some ware that will do something. My firmware says 6.61 PROMOD-C2p infinite simble.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I havn't played my psp for a long time but if a game has online play can I play online with this? I dought online works now a days thou.
    Also this firmware I hate how you enter text now. It was easier before.
    I was guided here by some posters from another thread. This is one of the better firmware's right?

    You're fine. You did everything right. I should mention to remove any game in the drive. All of mine don't work, so I don't have that problem. Infinity Firmware Builder does take a while and it does look like it gets stuck sometimes, but I think that depends on the memory card you are using. The most vital step is running Infinity Firmware Flasher, as any mistake/interruption flashing to the PSP will brick it.

    660 plugins on 661.prx is optional. It's for those that have additional plugins that haven't been updated from 6.60 FW to work on 6.61 FW. Since you don't seem to have those .txt files or additional plugins, you do not need it.

    there is something wrong. The first game I put last night works fine. Today went to put some other games in the ISO folder and they show up as currupt on the psp but the fist game i put still there?
    I think my sd card is bad. When I checked it the first time it had currupt files then formatted it with the psp then do this.
    The games show up fine and right sizes when it's connected to the computer but when I check the folder I get a hole lot of currupt apps.

    Im thinking it's eather bad memory card since it had a currupted folder then formated it or bad usb cable cuz the data kept going down then back up again.
    Or I did something wrong.
    If I get another stick DO I need those Files for the firmware to run. Can I just copy the same files put them in the right spot without doing it all over again?

    It does sound like you have a bad memory card, those write speeds should not be fluctuating for just one file. I thought you were exaggerating when you stated that Infinity Firmware Builder took over an hour. It should not take that long. Format the new one in the PSP. You do not need any files as the CFW is in the PSP, independent of the memory card.

    I think it's a bad card. it's old thou. Eather I got from the store or deal extreeme or maybe ebay, so long ago i can't remmember. I stopped ordering from there i was in some sort of craze.
    Well I had a 256mb card and found a very small game plays fine made a copy of the file and loads both fine. it's prob the card.
    Im going to try scanning it for bad sectores and try fixing it. Or format it with pc then psp.
    If all fails im going to get one of those dual sd card memory stick adapters if it's compatible. im going to search first if they are.

    >now I ended up formating it with the psp and loaded up my games only 3 games show the others currupt. I can't even save. says can't find stick when tring to save. Save works fine on the one game i have on the 256mb stick whitch is a scan disk. I think
    im just getting a adapter with a sd card maybe 64GB or more if it can handle it. Can't even find any sticks or adapters local have to resort to amazon. Real 32GB sticks are hella expensive and I hope the adapter is better.

    Alright I got my new card which is a 64gb sd card with adapter. Everything working out fine. Someone in another fourm told me that I should of went for 6.60 firmware instead, it has better capability for homebrew and plug ins. ohh well since I have a psp 2001.
    So far everything is working but states_menu_pict_v1.06-2 and tn_savestate_plugin_v1 which are save stat plug in's which is a bummer. kinda wanted to do it but not a big deal.
    I don't know about themes but there is a theme pack on youtube for 6.61 firmwares. I never use themes
    what is working are
    GAME_CATEGORIES_LITE plugin which works . this allows to put your games and other apps into different folders. Some people use this if they have lots of games and apps they split them up into folders so it doesn't load as much and reduces loading times.
    CWCHEAT: allows you to put cheat codes. some games crash like twisted metal head on for some reason. I got this from searching cwcheat 6.61 on youtube.
    Tempar: works but crashes more then the cwcheat did.
    POPSLOADER I don't know if it's working cuz psp plays ps1 natively and there is no menu stating that pops is on. All my ps1 games work by the way.(I have to change the control settings for mvc 1 cuz it don't have r2,l2. I just loose the 3 button press, which is cheating anyways.)
    Emulators:
    SNES9xlcm 04.2 mod Rev. 26 works, SNES- Snes9x Euphoria r5 b3 works but some games crash or get glitchy), MVSPSP 2.3.5 works(finding the right roms are a pain), PICODRIVE works,daedakusx64 works(it's a psp some games lag)NesterJ works, gpsp kai works, Masterboy v2.10 works
    HOmebrew:
    the 4 homebrew zelda games boot up. didn't get a chance to start the game.
    Wagic boots up
    cavestory boots up
    All my psp games boot up fine and play fine

    I really don't need anything else thou. I hear you get better results with firmware 6.60 with plugin's and homebrew, but so far happy with this prob not going to change it. THis is mainly for 3000 and the go models so i hear.
    I am sorry for scaring you people about my bad memory card problem I had. I got a new card everything is back to normal.

    I found CMF_R21d works. with the memory manager it can save stat. I had it crash one time so far so be warned. it works most of the time and it does other stuff. Took many hours looking for information about it. you hold the music note to activate it.
    gtavcs cheat device24 and LCSCheatDevice make sure there the 6.60 versions to work.

    Are there updated tutorials anywhere for how to make custom themes, gameboots and cintros for 6.61? Or at least download them?
