Updating firmware for psp
In order to install Pro CFW on your PSP, you will need to first update your PSP to the 6.60 Sony firmware (which, at the time of this writing, is the latest firmware released by Sony), if that’s not already the case.
Updates add new functionality as well as security patches to prevent homebrew applications and plugins from being executed on the system.
As a reminder, the PSN will be down today for a few hours, and if you live in North America, some PSP games are on sale through the Play Station Store this week.
Custom firmwares for the PSP has been since 2006, when Dark_Ale X did a proof-of-concept firmware based on the 1.50 version.
Updates can be obtained in four ways: While system software updates can be used with consoles from any region, Sony recommends only downloading system software updates released for the region corresponding to the system's place of purchase.
System software updates have added various features including a web browser, Adobe Flash Player 6 support, additional codecs for images, audio, and video, Play Station 3 connectivity, as well as patches against several security exploits, vulnerabilities, and execution of homebrew programs.
Installing Pro CFW on your PSPGo is simple, free, and is not much risky than installing a Firmware update on your device.
