Installing Pro CFW on a PSP Go

Translations for this article:

Installing a Custom Firmware on your PSP Go 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 PSPGo 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.

    Hi there.

    Thank you for this however how do I install ISO’s on the machine? I created a folder however each iso I put it either does not show mup under the menu option or it says corrupted data.


    • Graxic says:

      Simple. If it works the same way as my old PSP 1000’s CFW did, put it in a folder called ISO on the root of your memory card.
      You will have to create this folder.

    Is there any way to do this without a memory card inserted? I don’t have any M2 cards, but since this thing has 16GB built in – is there no way to access that via USB?

    i download ISO onto my hacked psp go. 6.60 and pro b10 all that good stuff but it just wont show up. it shows that i have less memory on my psp go (goes from 14 gigs left to 13) but the game is not on my game folder. ive tried with different gamesand downloaded from different websites and nothing is working. please please please help me. i make the ISO folder in the game section of my psp and put the file there.ive formated my psp go, help me please!

    • Vinda says:

      Hi you don’t make the ISO folder in the GAME folder – you just go to the drive of the psp and create an ISO (in CAPS) folder and copy the iso / cso to this folder…


  36. Vinda says:

    Hiya, can confirm this works right away on my none modded psp GO!!!

    just installed the official 6.60 firmware then copied over the CFW folders and installed the CFW – rebooted and then ran the QUICKFIX app…

    only tested with 3 games so far – but all work great – so easy


  37. Thepixel02 says:

    Can i use the PRO C1/2 with PSP Go or is the PRO B10 the only one that works?

  38. z3beats says:

    HI there

    i got a psp go couple of days ago and i ran the 6.60 pro c the problem is every game i download is a corrupted data i did create ISO folder in the PSP/GAME and still nothing changed

    please help me Thank You

  39. king says:

    What these guys fail to tell you in the updating your firmware is that you have to put the “UPDATE” folder in GAME. Make sure the eboot file is in the “UPDATE” folder. Then you can update your PSP GO. If you already have an older CFW hack, reboot your PSP before updating. After the update is done, you can delete the old one and download the new CFW hack.

  40. StrangeCrunchy1 says:

    Just out of pure curiosity, in the event that either I don’t like cfw, or something starts happening, can I bring my PSPgo back to stock, or am I stuck with a crippled PSPgo? Referring to the latter, obviously, there.

    • StrangeCrunchy1 says:

      Sorry for the double post, but, uh, this being my first time, and all, I have a few PSN PSX games. Do I need Both CFW downloads, or just the PRO-C fix 3? Sorry if it’s a dumb question, but, I’m severely green where firmware stuff is concerned. Give me a Root toolkit, and I do some stuff, but, this is something else.

      • toBsucht says:

        on PSPgo you may use external memory to load cfw then you can remove it if something goes wrong. To run Psx games maybe get popsloader. Check forum to find latest mod of cfw ;)
