HowTo: Upgrade your PSP to 6.38 OFW
On an earlier post regarding the release of 6.38 OFW for the PSP, my advise was to not upgrade to 6.38 because it patches exploits used to run Hen and other fun things on your PSP. With some1’s 6.38 to 6.20 Downgrader, this warning is moot now but of course it still applies to 6.39 (until the release of the 6.39 downgrader that is)
If you somehow upgraded to anything above 6.35 OFW and need to downgrade, then read on. This guide will help you install 6.38 OFW on your PSP so you can downgrade to a much more usable firmware, 6.20 OFW.
