    Dear sir ,
    I want to mod my psp to pro cfw but i have a few questions about it as
    I am new to this,my questions are:
    (1) will i be able to play all original psp games on my psp with pro cfw?
    (2) if i buy a original psp game will i be able to download it on a pro duo memory stick and play it without the cd after installing the pro cfw on my psp, if yes then how?
    (3)can i download the latest original psp games for free through internet instead of buying them after i have installed a pro cfw on my psp, if yes then how?

    Waiting for your response eagerly,
    Syed owais

      (1) yes (2) yes. Once cfw is installed just access vsh menu on your psp by pressing select button,and under “usb device” you select “umd disc”. Now you connect your psp to your pc to have access to the umd disc. You will see “game title.iso”. Just transfer the iso to your hard drive then go back to vsh menu and change usb device back to memory card. Now transfer the iso file to iso folder on the psp memory stick. (3) You should be careful with your last question. You may as well be asking “Can I kill someone in cold blood and get away with it, if yes then how? lol Just Google “torrent” and that will send you down the path to find most anything you want.

    My PSP Slim has become dysfuntional with Auto-Pressing Buttons likes of Start button and Right Trigger button during Game play. i changed quite a few CFW but none of them seem to work at the moment.

    Is there any way to solve that problem? thanks very much indeed.

    Thanks for this guide man, all worked perfectly, and now I am able to play games on my psp.

    For people who are skeptical about wheather it will work or not, it SURELY works given that you perform the steps exactly mentioned in the guide. And if it helps:

    my psp details:
    PSP Slim.
    ofw = 6.60
    motherboard = 0.88 v1/v2

    …works very well on that!
    thanks for the guide again! :)

      Open the vsh menu (select button in xmb), scroll to usb device and select flash0, close vsh menu and connect your psp to your pc. Look for a file named version.txt (in vsh/etc directory) and open it, you should see something like 9.90, change it to 5.50 and save, disconnect psp, reboot psp and start updater.

      I don’t know what model it is though, but I asked at Best Buy where I work, and they said playing ROMs on a PSP was not possible.

        The guys at best buy obviously don’t know anything, after installing cfw go to the “All Emulators for your PSP/Vita” section at the top of this blog and you will find all the emulators you need. Snes emulator works really well on psp.
