    Hey guys, i'll try to keep this short and simple. Well here's the deal, a long time ago my friend got my psp 2000 flashed/hacked. Since then it sais in the system Software is on 5-00 m33-4. I asked him if i needed to update it in the future and he said it would be no problem, just do a normal update via online and it'll download the new "hack" version or whatever. Weeeell i just tried playing some games on mah psp which unfortunately didn't work. So i thought i would do the update thingie, but alas i got a "Connection to the server failed. A DNS error has occured and then lotsa numbers".

    So I tried googling a little on the internet and found that there should be a 5.00 m33-6 version out by now. So here's my question. Is it as easy as just downloading the new update, and then just letting it update, or do i need this pandora battery thingie to make it work?

    Sorry if i seem very ignorant and unknowing but i wasn't the one that did the hacking so i really have no clue, if it's easy enough to do by myself i'll do it, but any tips or advice is much apreciated.

    Yeah the update server for M33 died a while back.

    You can just download hellcat's recovery flasher (you'll need to download the 5.00 official PSP firmware update as well, rename it to 500.PBP and put it in the root of your memory stick) and run hellcat's and tell it to install the custom firmware, it'll flash-install M33-6.

    Then download and run the Prome-4 installer for 5.00 M33 to add compatibility for some of the most recent gmaes.
