    Ok I have used 5.50 GEN for a while now and it has been frustrating. Almost all of the games freeze here and there and some are even worse. I have heard so much good stuff from 6.39 PRO B8 but I never wanted to attempt to upgrade because I heard it needs a 32/64GB memory stick. If that is true then ignore my request for help in upgrading my PSP 1000 to 6.39 PRO B8.

    Ok so far to start off so I can get the proper help I will tell you what I have.

    PSP 1000 model and is on latest 5.50 GEN which is Prome -4 I believe.

    I have a few memory sticks full of games and I am worried the saves might get corrupted so is it possible to upgrade using a 1GB memory stick?

    Also please clear this up for me.... how much memory does the firmware use? I swear I have seen and heard it was 32GB or something. I do not have a 64GB memory stick.

    Thanks for the help if anybody wishes to provide it.

    Also I want to make it permanent. Unless it is easy to get it back. Let us stick with permanent though I am the lazy type to redo the hack.

    where did you get this information?
    AFAIK all you need to do is upgrade to 6.39 OFW then run the 6.39 PRO eboot. then the update then the patcher to keep it on.

    1 - You want the hacking section.

    2 - The thing you MAY have seen about needing a 64GB memory stick and such was a joke thread made by me way before any actual 6.x CFWs existed, it was a joke thread in the EoF and was full of all sorts of bullshit info. Since I removed the info from the actual thread (as people kept thinking it was real), here's a copy to confirm it.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Will CWCheats still work or is there something better like it for 6.39?

    TempAR works great for me

    And about the 64GB memory stick, I always thought 64GB doesn't work on PSP
    Someone tried it once with 2 32GB microSD and a photofast adapter, and the PSP only showed 32 GB or something

    I am looking and I am beyond confused on this stuff to be honest.

    I have to downgrade? I don't get that if 6.39 is the latest OFW then wouldn't that be upgrading? I am on 5.50 Prome -4.

    Very confused on how to begin.


    EDIT: Oh and forget about that I was fixated on that which made me not want to upgrade 'till now. If 6.39 provides an improvement in game compatibility I want in.

    No game improvement.

    STEP 1 - Click the link.
    STEP 2 - "If you are currently on an older CUSTOM/HACKED firmware..."

    Most likely because he forgot to format his memory stick after plugging inn both. A friend of mine have 2 32GB on a photofast adapter and working competely fine.. just long loading time(bout 4-6 seconds) when he press on games because of over 40GB being used.

    @Flash: And why 6.39.. The 6.39 cant be permament as far as i know. Why not the 6.20 which can actually be permament?

    6.39 can be permanent now using a different method for the 3K, but I haven't bothered to look into it.

    This is about a PSP hack, not an emulator in particular... but Picodrive 1.51 does have support for Sega CD.
