There's a patch only for 6.20 (and it's only for PRO since LME is only 6.39/6.60) that autoboots the (L)CFW when the PSP turns on. I personally don't recommend using the perma patch since it only takes about six seconds to load PRO and there is a slight risk of bricking your PSP when installing the patch.
I myself have been using 6.20PRO since PRO-B2 was released and I'm very happy with it, I'm currently using 6.20PRO-Cf3 (found here - http://cf6d84fb.linkbucks.com/
[That is Coldbirds linkbucks link, not mine, support the devs they work very hard for us]) and it works great.
You can also use PRO-C on 6.60 which would allow you to also try out 6.60LME 1.8 by Neur0n. I recommend updating your PSP to 6.60 and trying them both out to see which one fulfills your needs. If you like the old 1.5 homebrews then you should go with LME, if you want to play one of the 47+ Ad-Hoc games online via Coldbird's AT-PRO server then you should go with PRO-Cf3.
You can also dual boot 6.60PRO-Cf3 and 6.60LME1.8. (There's a few threads in this sub forum about doing it, I believe you have to install PRO first, then LME but don't quote me on that. I've never attempted to do it since both of my PSP's are still on 6.20)

Its not the same as CIPL, and if the flash gets wrecked, you can't unbrick it, though some semi-bricks can be fixed on PermaPro that a non-Permapatched model would not recover from.
