BWidgets is a blogsite about blogging, but why we're sharing PSP tutorials here? The answer is very simple. I recently bought a PSP 1000 model so I wanted to share some cool PSP tricks & tutorials with you all.

Before we start this tutorial, here are some simple FAQ about this tutorial:

  • PSP 2000 Series
  • PSP 3000 Series
  • PSP GO


  • A charged PSP 1000/2000/3000/GO with official Sony Firmware 6.6 (which, at the time of this writing, is the latest firmware released by Sony)
  • PSP USB Cable (To transfer files)
  • Laptop/Computer (To download & transfer files)
  • Pro CFW (Direct Download Link - Repository Link)

Update Your PSP To Firmware 6.60:

Skip this step if you already have Firmware 6.60 installed on your PSP.

In order to install Pro CFW on your PSP, you will need to first update your PSP to the 6.60 Official Sony Firmware. As of writing, 6.60 is the latest firmware released by Sony. If you have older version installed on your PSP. Then there are versions of Pro CFW that will run on older firmwares as well.

To install the latest 6.60 firmware, just visit Sony PlayStation's official website, or on your PSP (Settings > System Update > Update via Internet)

Installing Pro CFW:

This step is very easy, and usually takes less than five minutes. Don't worry, you can easily do this.

Download Pro CFW 6.60 from this link. The archive contains subfolders in the "PSP/GAME" folder. There are several files in the GAME folder, but we just need two for this hack: the FastRecovery and the PROUPDATE folders. Copy those two folders to your Memory Stick's game folder "PSP/GAME".

After adding the FastRecovery and the PROUPDATE folders to your PSP's memory stick, you'll see a few new applications in your PSP's game menu. The one you will want to run in order to install Pro CFW is "Pro Update". This scary screen will appear (but with different options as my PSP is already hacked):

Press X key in your PSP to install Pro CFW. After clicking on X button, screen will load several files, then it will ask you to press X key again in order to launch Pro CFW. That's it!

You can erase the "ProUpdate" folder from your PSP, but keep the "FastRecovery" folder.

Using CFW In Daily Use:

In order to use CFW in your daily use, you'll need to run FastRecovery file every time you reboot your PSP. It takes less than 10 seconds and doesn't requires any actions. That's IT! Welcome to the world of Pro PSP Users!
