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.

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.


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.

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.

    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

    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?

  6. Anthony

    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

    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

    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

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

  10. Zrinko

    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

    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

      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

        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

    does the psp e1000 has the permanent patch?

  16. Loma

    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

      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

    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

    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

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

  22. The One

    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

    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

      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

      listen bro.. u can purchase or download games from PlayStationStore… And another way is that goto 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….. open that download .torrent file and open it. Select the path and click ok your download will start

  25. The One

    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

      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.
