First of all: Thanks to neur0n!


I'm proud to present the new download page made by me, my first attempt at making a free website XD

--> http://neur0npsp.altervista.org <--

I'll keep this Topic updated, so that you'll find all of "neur0n" firmware's, plugins & other things he made. Feel free to ask for help, also report any bugs, and i'll try to help you. (Only if it is a real bug i'll forward it to neur0n) (Forgive me for my english, it is not my native language, I learned it playing Xenogears and Final Fantasy 7)

Little intro:

neur0n is a japanese developer, he made the 6.35 custom, and then the famous ME firmware. He usually update's old useful plugins to work on newers firmwares. He's part of PRO B team, and he also helps developing the Half Byte Loader. and he recently found a ps vita xploit to have VHBL again.

Latest Updates:
LME Recovery fix just for psp go users, on LME 6.60-1.8 or 6.39-9.8 overwrite flash0:/vsh/module/recovery.prx
6.39 ME 9.8 - LME 9.8 bugfix, added recovery menu color
6.60 CFW ME - LME 1.8 Speedup ms bug when sleep mode fixed, added text color option in recovery, improved games compatibility
Analog block.prx (plugin to disable analogic stick inputs, if yours is broken)
Umd_Dump_Simple This is the best plugin to dump games of any kind! it works where other failed!

Useful PSP Topics by Moz:
Rarest psp games ever!
PS1 homebrews on PSP, downloadable (past 80 of them on a single eboot) <--This is worth a click

This is the unofficial downloads page, where you can find all the latest releases: http://neur0npsp.altervista.org
(Unofficial because i made it. Since popstation's usamimi page is not working anymore.)

Here's the link for neur0n's Twitter account, where you'll find all the latest news. It's in japanese, and google translator isn't that good at translating it.
(neur0n can speak english by the way)


(Please do not spam him with a lot of question, ask things in this thread first. ;) )

Custom Firmwares:

I will always update the links here as soon as i can, by the way the latest releases can be found on the unofficial download page, or if you activate the ''use custom network update'' from recovery menu and then from the psp select to update with internet.

6.39 CFW ME-9.8 Image
This custom firmware is the only recent one fully installed on the flash, just like the old m33 firmwares. It can be used only on psp 1000 (the fat ones) and psp 2000 (slims model). Only the ones that can boot in service mode with a pandora battery. The readme has all the information.

6.39 CFW LME-9.8 Image
This one instead works like PRO B, so it supports even the psp 3000 and not hackable slims, and from ME-9.0 also it support psp go. It works the same as the flash version, but is not fully installed like the other firmware. The readme has all the information. It uses the same kernel exploit of some1 downgrader (The same of 6.39 TN and 6.39 PRO B)
PSP GO users download the fix here: Image

6.60 CFW ME 1.8 Image
Sony changed NID calls some plugins are not working on kernel 6.60, by the way so many plugins got a 6.60 update, and most of the old ones still work... check here on wololo.net/talk on the plugins section. To install from another firmware version add 6.60 eboot.pbp named 660.pbp to the update folder, and copy it to PSP/GAME or let the installer download it from internet. (If you have a wireless router)

6.60 CFW LME 1.8 Image
Same as LME 6.39 but this is the 6.60 version, with the same few issue of ME 6.60 with some old plugins. It can be installed on any psp since it won't replace any original firmware modules. (I have it on my psp go)
PSP GO users download the fix here: Image

Homebrew Enabler:

6.60 HEN Image
This is an homebrew enabler, it is like a CFW with less features, for example: no plugin support, no recovery menu, no custom ps1 support...but if you use the psp just to play games, and you don't want a complicated custom firmware, then the HEN is your answer! Just launch the eboot. no installation needed


The italian translation of VSH menu, with correct spacing to make it looks good, copy it to seplugins (if you're italian :lol: )
copy paste it to it_vshmenu.txt
Code: Select allOFF
Disco UMD
Memory Stick
Memoria Nascosta
OE isofs
M33 driver
Sony NP9660
ME driver
CPU XMB           
CPU GIOCO

Frequently Asked Questions

-How can i keep my psp firmware easily updated?
You just need a wireless router, or a nehigbour with a password free router, or a free wifi hotspot,
open the recovery menu to activate 'use custom updates server' under settings,
now go back to XMB and all on top left corner choose firmware update... it will be downloaded (about 1mb only) and then installed.
Video tutorial courtesy of kakarotto from gopsp.it

Also by turning ON network update you will enable ''Prevent hibernation deletion on PSPgo'' a very useful feature

-I want to try 6.60ME can i return back to other firmwares?
There is a downgrader, some1 released the 6.60 version

-Can i have a dual boot psp with 6.39 ME and 6.39 PRO? or 6.60ME and 6.60 PRO?
Yes. there are no conflicts of any kind. simply copy PROUPDATE folder on ms0:/PSP/GAME
Then just run it from ME (no need to hold home to boot in OFW mode) press X to install it and you'll boot in PRO B
I am using PRO + ME since there is a 6.39 version of the PRO firmware, there are no issues (configs are saved with different names on flash1 and the cache on PSP/SYSTEM has different name too)
To return into ME just reset your psp from the vsh menu (not reset vsh) to reboot on pro use again proudate, or fastrecovery (do NOT use CIPL)
If you're using L-CFW ME it is even easier, just select to run PRO B fastrecovery instead of ME launcher from OFW.

-There is a translate folder and inside it en_recovery.txt and en_vshmenu do i need them?
No you don't, if you want an english recovery menu and vsh menu.
Those files are for translating the recovery menu and the vsh menu.
you only need .txt file into your seplugins folder if you want a different language.
use fr-it-ge-es according to your language and place that file on seplugins folder.

-What is leda.prx ?
A plugin made by darkalex, it make you able to use 1.50 homebrews on other firmwares, without 1.50 kernel addon needed
just activate it under game.txt and try your old homebrew. it should work. on any psp
(only a fat can install 1.50 addon leda works on every psp instead)

-Does that speed up memory stick option really works?
Yes. it works the best with newer memory sticks (red and black sony ones)
i tested it and noticed faster loadings, set that option to always.
How does it work on psp go?
On XMB: Works only on M2 card.
On GAME: Works on the booted device, example:
If you executed an ISO game or Homebrew from internal memory, the speed up feature is applied on ef0:/
If you execute a game from M2 card, Speed up feature is applied on ms0:/
On POPS: Works only on M2 card.
if you want to see a test video there you go

How can i watch an iso dumped from my UMD movie?
First place your iso at ms0:/ISO/VIDEO, then open the VSH menu and select ''iso video mount'' select the backup you want to mount,
your iso should pop out on GAME and VIDEO category on XMB (no need anymore to have inserted a dummy umd and select normal iso driver)
if you're on LME with a psp go from recovery menu activate: use model spoofer patch on xmb

-I can now mount ''hidden storage'' but what in the world is it???
it's about 60 MB of reserved space, only on psp go, a partition of the internal 16GB flash memory
psp go use it to temporary save eboot.pbp of firmware updates (if you used internet update function) so even if you have no free space on the internal flash or the m2 card you can still be able to update the firmware.
On a custom psp is not really important, since most of the updates are manual...
its path is eh0:/ and i have no clue if plugins can be loaded from there, i use it to keep backups of plugins and installers of L-CFW
the files saved into it cannot be accesed from the psp, only from a computer if you mount hidden storage thru usb

After that i used web browser my VSHmenu has gone! can i have it back without rebooting?
Sure, just select settings category on XMB, then press select and the vsh menu should appear
or press L+R+Select to force to display it

-I want to play my old ps1 games, how can i convert them?
I use Popstation GUI v3 by ZingaBurga to convert my old ps1 games for psp, only some will need popsloader.prx to be played, also you will need neur0n's pops_bridge patch if using popsloader.prx.
popsloader.prx needs a lot of official firmware's module, if you have no clue how to extract them send me a PM asking for popsloader on ME firmware
and i'll send you back a tutorial to dump them really fast.

-One of my .iso give me 80020148 error! why?
First of all turn on "execute opnssmp.bin" from recovery menu
This is related to that file inside the iso. Newer sony protection corrupt when dumping it making impossible to decrypt eboot.bin
there are some fixes for this:
use neur0n's updated umd dump prx --> http://neur0npsp.altervista.org/Plugins ... i_v2.zip//
this will make a newer iso without opnssmp corrupt and it will work (press note over the umd icon on xmb)
or just use isotool by takka to decrypt the eboot.bin of that iso
This issue should be fixed with ME-9.0

-Can i have a free psp theme?
Sure, there you go! --> http://neur0npsp.altervista.org/Extra-S ... _theme.ptf

-My UMD-PSN game can be updated, how do i do that on the iso-cso version?
Simply press triangle over the iso icon on xmb and then choose update from the menu.
You must turn on 'Execute PBOOT.PBP' from recovery menu under advanced.

-I'm on 5.50 GEN i cannot update it!
Just select to connect your flash0 thru USB, open VSH/ETC and edit the version.txt to have release: 5.50 and not 9.99. then save and try again to update. it will work.

-I like your topic, have you wrote other ones?
Well not many, this is my 2nd important topic. my first one is related to ps1 homebrews (yes even ps1 had games made by peoples, net yaroze ps1) if you want to try past 80 of them in a small 40 mb eboot go here --> viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6656
My topic about PSVita -> viewtopic.php?f=23&t=9255
My topic about the rarest psp game ever -> viewtopic.php?f=13&t=9254
If you have other questions or want more help reply to this topic. also reports any bug you found.

Audio boost and the like plugins had been made by many devlopper.
I think he made by himself but he might cut or forget the credit(s).

For example, Password lock plugin for CFW6.39 was made by neur0n.
He tweeted in Japanese that he made it from the function of TN(HEN) although the readme says not.
But it might be not technical but ideal inspiration from TN.(Goal the same, Start Not)

i tought so, that's why i was not sure to add ''made by TN''

Anyway neur0n is amazing, always fix things that peoples forgot that exist (like leda or the translatable recovery menu)
but it is not that he focus on those, he also updates all his work really fast... also he add new functions too... he is the one that made the memory stick speedup option, awesome!

Torky made a 5.XX Version of audioboost, neur0n only ported it to 6.xx

So not made by neur0n at torkys idea; Only ported by neur0n ;)
