Installing Pro CFW on a PSP E1000 (PSP street)

Translations for this article:

Installing a Custom Firmware on your PSP Street has never been so easy. In this page I’m describing the easiest possible way for you to install the most reliable Custom Firmware on your PSP: Pro CFW.

Installing Pro CFW on your PSP Street is simple, free, and is not much risky than installing a Firmware update on your device. It does not require any advanced hack technique or hardware modification. There’s basically 3 easy steps (you were expecting more? Sorry to disappoint):

1. Download the necessary files



2. 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 Sony firmware (which, at the time of this writing, is the latest firmware released by Sony), if that’s not already the case. There are versions of Pro CFW that will run on older firmwares, but updating to 6.60 will guarantee the best compatibility for your official games.

To install the 6.60 Firmware, just unzip the archive on your PSP’s memory stick, in the “PSP” folder (you should end up with an “UPDATE” folder in the PSP folder, if you do things correctly), then run the update from your PSP menu.

Trouble upgrading? Ask for help on our forums

3. Install Pro CFW

The Pro CFW archive provides several subfolders in the “PSP/GAME” folder. Two of them are interesting for us: the FastRecovery and the PROUPDATE folders. Those two need to be extracted to the PSP/GAME folder on your memory stick.

Assuming you extracted the files correctly, you will 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”. Just run it.

That’s it. You can erase the “ProUpdate” folder from your PSP, but keep the “FastRecovery” one.

4. DAILY USE

That’s it, I said 3 steps :) Welcome to the world of Custom Firmwares. There’s no additional step required to install the Pro CFW. However, every time you reboot your console, you will have to reactivate ProCFW, which is done by running the Fast Recovery tool from your PSP’s Game menu, and takes literally 5 seconds.

5. Power user

In this section you will find additional tricks/steps if you want to improve or customize your experience with a Custom Firmware on your PSP Street

Some people think that it is a burden to reactivate the CFW every time they reboot their console. It is important to note that this is needed only if you reboot the console, not if you put it into sleep mode. Most people use the sleep mode 90% of the time without ever realizing it. Trust me, I’ve used several PSPs for years now, running the Fast Recovery tool is not a problem in your daily usage.

  3. hi says:

  4. scott says:

    Hi,I bought a psp street (e-1002) for my son,i take it this firmware will work on this model.Do i have to do anything special to memory card, where do i put the games on the card to play them, do all region of games work
    thanks for any help

  5. Rodolfo says:

    great stuff I was able to do it in my PSP E1004 without any problem! just don’t know what else do I need to play ISO games from the memory card? it’s possible to play ISO our they need to be converted? how can we do that?
    Thanks

  6. Anthony says:

    I cannot find a proper answer to this question: is it utterly necessary to use fast recovery every time
    I turn my psp, ecen if I want to play a game on a legit UMD?

  7. StepS says:

    Hey wololo! I’ve noticed a mistake:
    “That being said, it is possible on most models of PSP Street to downgrade to Firmware 6.20, and install a permanent CFW on this firmware.”
    That isn’t possible, the Chronoswitch Downgrader only works on TA-095v1, and also PSP Street cannot be downgraded at all, because the firmware 6.60 has an extra support for a No-wifi model. That’s not possible as theoretically (except doing a reverse engineering of a whole OFW), as practically.
    Probably you innacurately copied the info from PSP-3000?

  8. toBsucht says:

    mmm.. it´s StepS from talk… mm sounds like it´s true btw Psp-street is delivered with 6.39 probably not deeper 😉

  9. Pete says:

    Mad walkthru. And u are right about fastrecovery. reboot and homebrew away!!!

  10. Zrinko says:

    One question, what if I get another memory card? Do I have to repeat the whole process or would simply copying all the content from the old one to the new one be enough?

  11. A Steyn says:

    what does the psp e1004 look like

  12. kavi says:

    Hey I was just wondering if i Should get a PSP e1000 street because my perents wont get me a Vita because its too expensive. So i dont know really and does this system mess up ur PSP?

  13. nauman says:

    hey wololo…i just bought psp e1004 and its manual is in not in english. and i have a few questions ..
    1.it does not have wifi but does it have multi play?
    2. can i share a game from ps3 tp my psp or from psp to another psp.
    this is my first one.

  14. John says:

    I have a PSP E1002 with the OFW 6.60 and I’m considering installing the ProCFW. One thing I’d like to know before hand, How do you completely uninstall the ProCFW and revert the PSP back to it’s original official firmware?
    I’d like to know this before I install any CFW in case I need to go back to the OFW for some reason.

    • wololo says:

      Rebooting the console is enough to put you back to Official firmware.
      If you want to really clean up all the files to remove any trace of the custom firmware, there is an “uninstall” option in the Pro CFW menu, which I assume will clean up the flash files.

      • PSPcfwDUDE says:

        What wololo means is , by running the PRO Updater , there’s an option to uninstall the CFW ( When you have launched the updater the option “Press Triangle to uninstall CFW” is used to uninstall the cfw )

  15. Jur says:

    does the psp e1000 has the permanent patch?

  16. Loma says:

    I just bought a new PSP E1004 and a new memory card.The thing is,

  17. Loma says:

    By going thru’ ur reply and review,do i need to download the CFW,my device comes with OFW6.60…????
    Please make a quick reply????
    Thank you

  18. The One says:

    just curious guys ill be getting my psp street hopefully soon does this work on all psps street i mean like the E1000 , the E1001 , the E1002 , the E1003 and the E1004 ?
    and is it safe i mean it will not brick my psp ?

    and thanks.

    • wololo says:

      It works on all models of PSP Street, yes.
      The risk of bricking when installing Pro CFW is minimal, it is actually less than if you install an official Firmware from Sony, because Pro CFW does not override existing files

  19. The One says:

    thanks for the fast repley one last thing i am curious what is the diffrence between the models ?
    why is there E1000 and E1003 an E1004 ?

  20. The One says:

    and of course one more thing can it be fixed if it is bricked ?
    and btw this is tested on all models i understand from ur post ?

  21. The One says:

    sorry for so many questions guys but will my psp still read UMDs if i do this ?

  22. The One says:

    ok a few more questions whats the diffrence between the models? and i understand from ur post this is tested on all models? and will it still read UMDs ? and my final question where can i get games from?

  23. The One says:

    sorry guys i have been reading around just wanna know whats the diffrence between Pro CFW and the 6.60 PRO B10 ? and from where can i download psp ISO games.

    • wololo says:

      Pro cfw and 6.60 pro b10 are the same thing. It is like asking the difference between the iphone and the iphone 4s. :)
      Dont ask about warez on this site. You can rip your own umds to convert them to isos.

    • Ayushman Mathur says:

      listen bro.. u can purchase or download games from PlayStationStore… And another way is that goto http://www.google.com in search if u want game gta san andreaz, than search gta san andreaz for psp game download torrent (requires utorrent in your computer. their will be several results. look at their links, you will find a link starting with kat.ph….. open that download .torrent file and open it. Select the path and click ok your download will start

  24. The One says:

    and one more thing will wagic work on this CFW ??? it seems really awseome and i would love to play .

    and sorry for all these questions and thanks alot guys.

  25. The One says:

    hi again i am curious just all psp homebrews work on this and is there any risk of bricking when trying out a homebrew on this .?

    thanks alot wololo ur the man.

    • toBsucht says:

      games shouldn´t brick your device maybe some apps if they writte files to flash. Just googel the homebrew name if it isn´t save to use you should find a warrnig and you know the “readme” inside the downloads^^.
      To be save enable flash protection.

  26. salim says:

    I cant download the pro CFW. when I try to download the link on this website it will be in .rar format. from where i can download the pro cfw latest version

  27. The One says:

    salem 3leykoum salim hopefully ur an arabe like me anyway its is right u download it in rar foarmt then u extract it and u will find what he is talking about.

  28. chandan says:

  32. saurav says:

    the one do i hav 2 download d the official firmware 6.60 from d link above? .i already hav it,it was der in the psp wen i bought it.

  33. Carlton says:

    THIS SEEMS THE EASIEST WAY FOR A NOVICE WHO KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT PSP. THANKS A LOT AND CHEERS.

  34. Carlton says:

    CARRIED OUT THE STEPS BUT UNABLE TO RUN NFS GAME. wHERE SHOULD I EXTRACT THE ISO FILE. SHOULD IT BE IN THE GAMES FOLDER WHERE THE FAST RECOVERY ONE IS? FOR THAT MATTER SHOULD ALL EXTRACTED GAME FILES (RAR) BE INSTALLED IN GAMES FOLDER ABOVE. A REPLY AT THE EARLIEST WOULD BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.

  35. toBsucht says:

    put your iso or cso file into a floder ISO at the root close to the PSP floder (same place as the plugins floder)
    Then your games should be shown in xmb game.

  36. mart says:

    can i use the hack for psp go?

    • wololo says:

      There is a specific page for the pspgo, please go back to the main page of the guide and read more carefully.

  37. NoobHacker says:

  46. don says:

    what is the diffences about e1000 and e1002????

    • wololo says:

      Basically nothing, they are the same model, the number at the end depends on the country where you bought your psp. This tutorial applies to all models of e100x

    • rikky the helper says:

      99% nothing difference between psp e1000 and 1002

  47. Xixoraptor says:

    I still didnt understand something. Do I have to transfer all the files to the PSP/Games folder or just the ones you mentioned of the Pro CPW? How can I play psx games when everything is installed?I need to creat a folder named ISO and just put the games there and itll work?

  48. Sam says:

  50. Nishant says:

    hey!! is there any methods to download the games and play in psp e1000..???

  51. D4rkiga says:

    is it safe to enter sleep mode while playing an iso?

    • buss says:

      be careful, it depends on the game: some titles, like the UMD versions of Crazy Taxi 3 or GTA: Chinatown Wars need to read data off of the UMD before they can run the game again after the psp wakes up, so naturally if you’re running the game as an ISO/CSO it will not work as it will continue trying to read a UMD that isn’t there.

  52. D4rkiga says:

    oh ok thnx

  53. Xixoraptor says:

    IF I play with a different memory stick do I need to reinstall the CFW?

  54. mrSoczi says:

  59. Jasmeet says:

    Hi Wololo
    I just installed the Pro CFW on my son’s E1004. Something happened and the legit UMD is working. I put a Kingdom of war game on the Memory Stick it says “Data corrupt”. Downloaded the same from your site only. I assume the game must be corrupted. How do i know that any game will work on this PSP as in what i mean is where can i get the ISO games all are talking about to test whether the CFW has worked??

    • Min2001 says:

      The game will work you just need to press the select button and and change the UMD ISO Mode to M33 driver also the ISO files need to be in a folder called ISO which needs to be created in the root of the PSP drive.

      • Jasmeet says:

        Thank You Min2001….. All working good. borrowed some games from the kid next door. Any good links where we can download some more….

        • WestJGameS says:

          You shouldn’t be pirating games, but if it’s for educational/research purposes, and you are studying the METHOD without actually DOWNLOADING them [ 😉 ] then torrentz.eu or filestube.com are your best bet.

      • Iain says:

        The game will work you just need to press the select button and and change the UMD ISO Mode to M33 driver also the ISO files need to be in a folder called ISO which needs to be created in the root of the PSP drive >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> where is the root of the psp drive?? thanks

  60. sumsal92 says:

    Hello, I bought psp e1003 a week ago. I downloaded pro CFW, downloaded a game from this site (kingdom of war), made Iso folder in the root of memory stick, put the game in there, still i cant play the game! I don’t even get the ‘corrupted file’ sign, its like the game isn’t even in there! someone please tell me what to do!

    • wololo says:

      Kingdom of War is a homebrew, not an iso. Just put it in the PSP/GAME folder, not in the ISO folder.
      For example PSP/GAME/KOW/
      (Note: the PSP/GAME folder already exists on your memory stick. If you have to create it, something’s wrong!)

      • sumsal92 says:

        Ok thank you, I can see the picture now however it says data is corrupted. In a post above, someone said to someone that press the select button and change UMD ISO mode to M33. Select button only shows three options: start, delete, information. What do i do? Sorry to appear such a dumb but its my first time… Also, cso games go in iso folder or we have to make a new cso folder?

  61. louis says:

    will it work on Psp e1004

  62. Shrey says:

    how do you know if you have successfully hacked it? i mean does the firmware changes?

    • Kro says:

      2 methods:

      A/ press Select, if you see a menu with UMD ISO mode, USB memory device and a few others

      or

      B/ Go to system settings> system information and you should see 6.60 Pro B10 (assuming you followed the above instructions)

  63. Shantanu says:

    I, Recently purchase Sony PSP E1004 have version of 6.60, And i have installed the PRO-C, but still now i m unable to hack it, whenever Running the game from memory card it is saying Corrupt data (IN BURNOUT LEGENDS.CSO GAME) or The game could not be started ERROR 80010087(IN Medal Of Honor Heroes 2 GAME)..what should i do…plzz suggest me becouse i m new in PSP world…

  64. Some Guy says:

    Cheers. It’s a shame there isn’t a more permanent method like for the previous PSP variants. Would be nice not having to worry about reactivating all the time.

    Hello,

    I have firmware 6.60 and Pro CFW on PSP Street E1000!
    Now I have a game Fifa12.iso

    Please give me an instruction, what I have to do now?
    I read to create an iso ordner somewhere on psp??? But where???
    PSP/GAMES/ISO or where??? U wrote to create it in PSP Root, but where ist PSP root to find???

    Please help me!

  84. toBsucht says:

    root=ms0:\ mEMORYsTICK 😉
    Make a floder called ISO at the root and one at

    now you only have to find where to store the iso file 😛

    but now i cant press select and when i go change my nickname sellect goes auto cycle

    can i downgrade ??? has arrived with 6.60

    • toBsucht says:

      vahious as far as i know you may can downgrade to 6.50 (without brick risk) but no cfw so you have to update again.
      Yes you can use both cfw..
      ..better boot your psp into ofw first.
      If you got problems with game backups you can switch iso driver. Lcfw got 2 pro-cfw got 3 iso driver ;o)

    • Vip says:

      I have same problem as yours with the select button.
      My problem is that after launching the “pro update”, the installation goes fine, abut after reboot my psp freezes, I can’t even “hit” “fast recovery”.The whole OS just freezes.:(
      I have tried so many cfw’s.
      Any Solutions?

  92. Ace says:

    I had 6.60 ver, on my PSP when I got it, so installed the non-permanent fix and it works well.

    I have a question though.. I have a 4 GB memory stick currently, but I am planning to get a larger one.

    What steps would I need to take to make sure, everything is alright?

  93. gasan says:

    I installed as you said but it doesn’t allow me to install the pro update I created a folder in the root just an iso n cso folder placed the games in iso..folder I still can’t game..its sad..any advice please

  94. gasan says:

    I got it to work but the data still says corrupted do I install the Cipl aswell?coz I just installed pro update…

  95. gasan says:

    Now I just need the game to work says data corrupted…but I have the 6.60 Pro C showing atleast and the menu is iSo mode m33 what’s should I do to make the iso game work anybody?

    • toBsucht says:

      You can switch between 3 iso driver m33 is one of it
      (from old ~ 5.xx cfw)
      prom is new and only at pro cfw ..should be the best.
      np is sony orginal.
      In case some backups don´t work switch it. Maybe you note faster loading to.
      Cipl is not for e1000.
      Btw writte all floder name in caps ISO not iso
      If it still don´t work youu´ve done something wrong or the backup is corrupt.

  96. john says:

    for some strange reson when i update the firmware and turn off the device it reverts back to original firmware, do i have to run pro update everytime ????

  97. Ace says:

    No one answered till yet..

    And so, I am asking again..

    What steps would I have to take, if I am changing my memory stick from the one, where I had done the flashing?

    • toBsucht says:

      Maybe copy hen. If you use plugins copy them it´s importend if you reboot that they are used in the same way as befor (aktiv or off). You can switch ms without turn of psp.

  98. Apricorn says:

    I tried following all the Directions for my PSP 1000
    and well

    and change the Version.txt already
    i have no idea how to get this thing to run
    any help would be appreciated
    I am running 5.50 Prometheus 4 atm and all games are running normally its just this update that wont

  99. oo0_gigz_0oo says:

    • blueprint says:

      I started to have this problem too.
      keyboard does not repond and psp freezes.

      uninstalling CFW and reinstall does not work.

      Any Ideas?

      • Dimitri says:

        Why is nobody answering the Freeze screen problem? i have also that problem, and nobody knows about it, except the ones that have the problem :(
        Somebody here that knows… speak goddammit 😀
        Thanks in advance! :)

  100. Kaleshin says:

    Guys i need help with installing Dlc.
    I want to install the dlc files for Rock Band Unplugged but i’m missing the param.pbp file and i can’t find it on google.
    What can i do?
    P.S.(I’m fairly new to all this)

  101. john says:

    help! followed everything by the letter and installed it all on my psp e1003 system but when I go into the games it says corrupted data.
    has anyone got any idea where I could be going wrong? I got the latest 6.60 firmware as I only brought it yesterday!

    • toBsucht says:

      Make sure you got eboot at the correct floder. Try to run Wagic homebrew since it´s signed you don´t need a hen to run it.

  102. john says:

    tried everything again, reinstalled all the 3 programmes onto my card into the games folder and also created an ISO folder but the folder is still reading as corrupted data, even without any games on there but I got no idea what im doing wrong.
    any helpers???

    • toBsucht says:

      Run the Proupdater first. After that you can delete the Proupdater file and start your cfw with ProRecovery eboot. CIPL FLasher is not for e1000 psp. Can you run wagic?

      • john says:

        ok this is what ive done so far:
        installed the 3 files but deleted the flasher.
        I installed the pro updater and then it rebooted.
        I then deleted the updater file leaving me with just the recovery file, I then ran the recovery file.
        once I did that, I plugged my psp into my pc and added ISO under psp/game folder.
        when I unplugged my psp I went back into the folder and the iso folder was still showing as corrupted data.
        I got no idea what ive done wrong when ive followed it to the letter. :-(

  103. john says:

    hi. im very new to all this, not sure what wagic is (sorry if I sound a bit thick)

    • john says:

      ok, wagic runs fine, but when I try to add iso (tried both upper and lower case) in games folder, still getting corrupted data, I even tried a completely different name with same effect.
      im baffled about this one!

    • toBsucht says:

      2 floders. 1 at the root for your backups and 1 at GAME floder (always caps).

      • john says:

        ho toBsucht, I have put iso in virtually every folder to see what happens but still saying corrupted data.
        I really don’t know what else to try to get this thing working :-(

  104. toBsucht says:

    You can try to switch iso driver but i believe you still got them at the wrong floder. ms0/= root –>
    ms0:/ISO/x-YOUR-backup-xx.iso
    ms0:/PSP/GAME/ISO ……to see them in xmb.
    If this don´t work your image is defect.

  105. john says:

    hi. i have put an ISO file in every folder and even with the folder empty im still getting corrupt folder.
    im very new to all this so any help in basic instructions will be a great help.
    thanks again.

    • JHewk says:

      you need to create a folder on the root of your memory stick and name it “ISO” then put your .iso games in there

      • Swatej says:

        pls give me the address for the root of the memory stick. I am new and dont know how to access the memory stick’s root

    • Animesh says:

      you need to put proupdate and fast recovery independently in the game sub folder in the psp folder i had also got this warning that corrupt data

    • SoulW says:

      Copy all the data from your memory card to your pc then format the card using the psp’s built in format option that will automatically create all the folders from the start and then try to put the ISO in the GAME folder. Had the same problem myself, tried this and it worked. Been running smoothly ever since….Hope yours works too.

  106. ashish says:

    Pro CFW works on my psp very well.But when i put another memory card to my psp and run the fast recovery or pro cfw,it say that the update is not compatible with my system..
    I dont know y but this happens only when i put another memory card

    • toBsucht says:

      I believe you use two differnt versions of Pro cfw replace fast recovery or run the same updater on both memory cards.

  107. Silvio says:

    Thank You!
    I wish Happy Easter to my son with
    installation of Pro CFW on son’s e1004
    (default 6.60 firmware) and Minecraft.
    Your’s tutorial is simple and working.
    Happy Easter You too!

  108. Callum says:

    How long does this take usually? Can it be done whilst my PSP is on charge? The risks of bricking it is literally none it has been said, will it only brick if it is interrupted during install? Running OFW 6.60 atm and looking to install CFW. Got my PSP yesterday and yes, I am a total noob to this CFW scene. Any help greatly appreciated.

    • wololo says:

      Takes less than 10 minutes total. You can install with the adapter plugged in but it is recommended to also have the battery in and charged, in case your kids trip on tha adapter cord. Bricks can only happen if you interrupt the install process.

      • Callum says:

        Hi Wololo

        Thanks for the reply, much appreciated. Okay so charged battery great,I don’t have kids so shouldn’t be a problem I’ll just leave plugged in on the side and go back to it.

        Does it show a progress bar at all or is it just done when it’s done.

        Many thanks

  109. matrabula says:

  111. anonymous says:

  112. ZakD22 says:

    Hello. Is there a hack that will allow PSP1000 models to play multiplayer on games that block it?

    Me and a friend want to play multiplayer on God Eater 2 but the game doesn’t allow multiplayer for PSP1000 units for the sake of connection smoothness. I heard there’s a hack to bypass it but I can’t seem to find it on google with the search terms I’ve been using so far at least.

  139. SuperSam says:

    Is this forum still active?

  140. SuperSam says:

    Hi there! I own psp e1004 with CFW 6.60. I enjoyed playing games like final fantasy, gods war etc. in my memory stick, however, at first it would save the game files but when you’re getting in the long way it could no longer save the game (corrupted file) which is annoying. Is there any way to remove the corrupted files that does not appear when I plug-in my memory stick in the computer. Or, is there any way to recover the game file? Looking forward for your assistance. Thanks :)

  141. Boop says:

    Hi, I’ve had this installed on my PSP E-1004 and its been working fine with any ISO or emulator that I’ve tried on it. Recently, though, I tried to get some PSN .eboot games on it and, despite recognizing them and even showing me a black screen with a Warning saying to play in a well-lit room and whatnot, the PSP then goes black and then returns to the menu with an error (“The game could not be started. (FFFFFFFF)”, for example.

    After I got that the first time I happened to come look over here and noticed the FastRecovery fix and tried that, but it still keeps giving me errors. I’ve formatted the Memory Stick and even reinstalled the CFW and put in the “fix”, but it’s the same: ISOs run fine, PSX games from PSN give me errors like the one I used as example earlier.

    Thanks in advance, if anyone can actually help me out or at least knows the reason this doesn’t work ^^

    • PSPcfwDUDE says:

      PRO-C2 (which, at the moment is the latest version) is buggy as far as PSN PSX games. The only way to fix this is by uninstalling PRO-C2 and installing PRO-C.

I tried to install a game: dragon ball z shin budokai another road. But when I go thru my games folder in xmb it says corrupted data. I read a post earlier it said to change the driver to M33 from inferno. Wud it be OK? Will it work?
