    When are they going to give up…

  2. brick_master says:

    maybe this update has a eboot list…..??????

  3. Krozoa says:

    they should try and stop the PS3 if they can and give up on the PSP

  4. Ioan says:

    I bet dozens of people will upgrade even though wololo advises not to do so, and later will come crying and asking: Hen, HBL, something for 6.37??

  5. KenshinX says:

    Everybody’s Sukkiri savedata exploit (Patched) Kernel Exploit (???) Signed Hoembrew (Works OK)

  6. Taizoken777 says:

    Theyre updating to play phantasy star portable demo online LOL

  7. wololoIloveyou says:

    When I was updating my psp version?the battery drop out and my psp become a brick.Does it has any possible stratage to recovery it??I mean will the Pandora battery come true in the future??

    • wololo says:

      No, send your psp to Sony’s repair center, that’s what they are here for.

      • wololoIloveyou says:

        yeah?Thank you all the same.I don’t have the guarantee card?so?you know?it is only the brick…hey?would you like to receive it?

        • wololo says:

          Thanks for the offer, but I’m not a hardware hacker, so I wouldn’t know what to do with it. One suggestion: sell the parts on ebay, you might almost get even on your money. Sell the screen, etc… separately..kind of a pain, but a good way to get some of the money back.

  8. spider-monkey says:

    I update to 6.37 because im stupid…no i didn’t 😛 I’m happy with my 6.35 PRO(but im still looking forward for the downgrader so i could us TN hen)

  9. spider-monkey says:

    thats odd. i could still go to PSN even with 6.35. maybe a delay update for PSN 😀

  10. SINCaliber says:

    Another useless update? >_>

  11. ffdgh says:

    ….i’ll stick with the awesome hens sony

  12. xxx says:

    I think they have too much to patch in OFW so they should name it v 7.00 rather than 6.37 :)

  13. rafael707 says:

    signing homebrewz wasnt patched wololo =)

    “Just to confirm, you can still “sign” things for 6.37″

  14. x1cosmos1x says:

    damn and i just found out about the 6.35 PRO yesterday and they went did this may update a 1001 i got and see if the pro works on it lol and re downgrade it again

  15. Shinny says:

    just as i said sony cant go whith out a fight…

  16. Enzeru says:

    I hope developers found a way (keys) to activate the kernel mode, that would fix it all in this new OFW

  17. xfat7i says:

    any news about version 6.2?

  18. noob says:

    yet another useless ofw from SOWNED NEE

  19. built2roll says:

    does this mean no more phantasy star portable 2 online??

  20. skyline12 says:

    lol sony’s getting owned by hackers XD

  21. iSWORD says:

    Does that mean that the signing thing is unpatchable ?! Or is it because Sony is too lazy to make a whitelist for its official things ?!!

  22. svenn says:

    I think whitelisting applications have some legal issue’s. Thats why they din’t added this yet.

  23. Rowan says:

    i signed promethethus iso loader and it doesnt trow up an error it jsut goes straight back to the xmb, any one know a fix?

  24. Roxxas says:

    when they put the new version and dont can sign in store use the psn lover plugin he run in 6.35 PRO here

  25. Rowan says:

    also for anyone else who has updated if you sign deadalous n64 emulator (all credit goes to the guy who makes it) it can run on 6.37

  26. @DizzyLikesWhiteGirls

    I think YouTube was the biggest one for a lot of PSP owners.

    I remember before I had a PSP, when they added the web browser and a lot of PSP owners asked for Flash Player in the console to run YouTube videos and Sony added Flash 6 but without the video playing/streaming functionality for no apparent reason.

    and on the ebook reader, I’m surprised they haven’t tossed one in the PSP yet being that they entered the business.

  27. DizzyLikesWhiteGirls says:

    @Morfin I’m pretty sure there’s already a PSNfuck of sorts.

    Using official “Version 6.35”, I can’t get into any of my online games or the PSN store… but with the newest XMB-loading Hen “6.35 PRO” I can still play Phantasy Star Online and access the PSN store.

    I just checked and it’s all still valid. So even if you don’t update, you’re not losing your online capabilities.

  28. crackers says:

    cat hack hes working on 6.20tn-c and 6.35 tn-a atm why would u ask him for another homebrew itll be a foreevr war besides we arleady got a bunch of homebrews for ofw and 6.35 pro why would u update anyway wololo said not to :)

  29. I want TN-C ..huhuhu…anywayz is harvest moon boy and girl able to play in open idea iso loader?in prometheus, it is signed but hangs up..

  30. munib says:

    how do you know tn is working on 6.35 hen a?

  31. sony can kiss my ass says:

    and the battle goes on….

  32. 122jdh says:

    ive got 2 words for u Sony GIVE UP
    how many “ofw” have u released that havent been cracked yet?
    thats right cry in the corner while u ‘lose’ money cause people are using homebrew

  33. asmith906 says:

    yeah a company trying to protect their profits. Sony is so stupid /sarcasm
    I wish people would listen to what they are saying

    • wololo says:

      @asmith906: Sony should decide if they are a hardware manufacturer, a content distributor, or a software company.

      The concern right now is that they are trying to be all 3 at the same time, which leads to major conflict of interest, and is extremely bad for the customer (they basically lock the whole distribution system, preventing fundamental software freedom, interoperability, legal use of your hardware, etc…).

      Note that they are not the only ones trying to do that.

  34. Enigma says:

    I upgraded to 6.37….HBL for 6.37…?

    LOL, NOT. Would it even matter? The signing process can’t be patched, and I’m sure someone’s already working on signing Prometheus.

  35. Ultima says:

    @Enigma Prometheus needs to be in Kernal Mode to run Isos or else you will be kicked to the XMB.

    signed Eboots can be easily patched by changing the signature used to sign ebooots thus making signed Homebrews and older eboots unplayable(maybe make some work arounds for Offcial eboots).

  36. Shadow9th says:

    i think sony isnt that stupid and it wasnt a mistake rather a plan when they released part of the secret keys, they probably wanted hackers to use this information, cause they already have a fix for it, i mean thats what i think, i dont know really

  37. Explitr says:

    Well total_noob still has that vsh exploit!!

  38. OhYeah says:

    any news for 6.20 TN-C or additionals for 6.20 TN-B???

  39. TDK says:

    Great!!!!, now Sony will release a new firmware every month, the next would be the 6.38???? arives on the third week of February… (It’s a joke, no has been pased 2 months since the last update and they give us a new one without having anything new).

    This is the real update log, not a real “New Firmware” just the same *** with a bigger number and new exploits:

    New for 6.37: System software stability during use of some features has been improved.

    New for 6.35: System software stability during use of some features has been improved.

    New for 6.31: System software stability during use of some features has been improved.

    New for 6.30: System software stability during use of some features has been improved.

    New for 6.20: System software stability during use of some features has been improved.

    • Ultima says:

      Sony also adds small useless add-ons to the recent releases I wonder what else they put in.

      Nintendo did the same with Wii System Menu 4.3 but it didn’t include anything new I call it Trick Firmware because it deletes all signs of Homebrew which can actually brick your Wii luckily i’m still on 4.2

  40. brick_master says:

    Anybody who is wondering “System software stability during use of some features has been improved” is sony’s way of saying we patched your exploits

  41. sony can kiss my ass says:

    i they improve their translation it should be a real improvement.

  42. Thuganomics says:

  47. joseph says:

    i know can somebody help

  48. joseph says:

    does anybody knows how to downgrade i will give money for a reply on downgrading 6.37

  49. juan321 says:

    to all the people who had actualized to the OFW6.37 please don´t come to this site saying (i update my psp to OFW6.37 can anyone help to downgrade) because you have been advertised to not upgrade youre psp anymore if you want to keep playing homebrews o isos, so if you had actualizated please wait patiently for a new exploit or another way to hack your psp :) but still some homebrews you can play with your OFW

  50. Aaron says:

    Well guys, it’s your call if you want to upgrade to OFW 6.37, if you do, please DO NOT come here to complain about how you can’t run your ISO’s and asking for a downgrader, that’s annoying. But anyway if you upgrade, you still HBL for 6.37, Wololo already released it and signed it (give it up, the guy’s a mastermind)
    Now you can run HBL from the XMB (even if you are using 6.37 OFW), so you will be able to run homebrews and emulators and stuff compatible with the HBL, so that’s sick! And you can even run signed homebrews from the XMB, but for those interested just in playing ISO’s then DO NOT upgrade, stay at 6.35 (or less) if you still want to run HEN’s.
    Anyway… for those who already did the upgrade you can find signed stuff here:
    There’s quite a big list of cool signed stuff you can easily run from your XMB in OFW 6.37
    And as usual the latest release of HBL for 6.37 can be found in the HBL section.

  51. Rowan says:

    wololo i had to upgrade to get away from that annoying 6.35 custom, do u has hen or downgrader for 6.37 on the way?

  52. red says:

    HEN for 6.37 please

  53. shams says:

    How To Downgrade Psp Slim 2004 6.37 To 5.51?

  54. lloyd says:

    sir i just bought a psp3006 and its firmware is 6.37 can anyone help us?


  55. rodolfo says:

    no se como se hace esto

  56. FritZ says:

    SO…we can’t Downgrade it..but can we Upgrade it somehow?
    so we can downgrade it when our version reaches 6.39 or 6.60
    because they also release a downgrader for 6.60 and 6.39…

  57. wololo says:

    use MediaGo

  58. jlo138 says:

    I use media go and I downloaded all my stuff when I bought them and I knew there would be a time that I couldn’t re-download my purchased content without an update so I backed up all my stuff with the serials to an external hard drive so I wouldn’t need to download them from psn ever again.

  59. frank says:

    im pretty sure coldbird’s hen has that as a feature
    i was using psn with no problems on 6.30
    i think it’s the same for 6.35
    get the signed 6.35 hen and use it!!!

  60. Orohu says:

    Um, you know, you can always load a .txt file from your memory stick in the PSP Internet Browser.
    You just need to type it in this format in the address bar:

    Sony didn’t fail on that part, even though it’s a lesser-known feature. Works with small SWFs and most HTML documents, as well.

  61. DizzyLikesWhiteGirls says:

    That’s not a reasonable facsimile. No bookmarks, no quick and easy navigation or formatting options… and even if you do try to take it seriously (which I have tried to do before out of desperation) it leads you to the obligatory “Out of Memory” issue that PSP’s Web Browser is (in)famous for.

    Sony simply failed on delivery when it comes to the media functionality, there’s not even any room for discussion, debate or objectivity on that subject. Even as a picture viewer, you’re extremely limited in what you can view before it craps out and labeling hi-res files as “corrupt” simply because their software won’t read it.

    It’s not even a hardware limitation because I’ve had crappy nokia phones with worse specs than the PSP that handle my multimedia like a champ… even with 4MB ram.
