How To install 6.20 / 6.35 / 6.39 PRO-B8
- Upgrade to the required firmware:
- Download the installer package
- Copy PROUpdater and FastRecovery folders to PSP/GAME
- Run Proupdater and follow on screen prompts
I’m annoyed with myself! After all those questions and downloading all the required files, I perfectly know in theory how the upgrade process should be done.
But when I was about to run the OFW updater, it hit me… I AM TOO SCARED TO UPDATE! I am having pre-update jitters. Why oh why? T_T
Actually, that’s better than just jumping headlong into the update :).
Think it through, there’s little chance of a brick (but there is a chance) so take your time in deciding whether to upgrade or not
Sylv3r, please help me. Because I’m a discontent and impulsive brat, I decided to do the update.
Here’s the breakdown of what I did:
1) Backed up MS to PC.
2) Ran GEN-C updater and held L trigger; uninstalled GEN-C.
3) Formatted MS. Remove-insert battery.
4) Power on PSP while holding down SELECT+START+SQUARE+TRIANGLE (soft boot). Went through initial setup (i.e. Language, Time Zone, Date & Time, Nickname).
5) Copied OFW 6.35, 6.35 PRO-B8 Updater, & FastRecovery to PSP\GAME folder.
6) Ran OFW 6.35 updater. Success.
7) Ran 6.35 PRO-B8 updater. Install OK… Now reboot to CFW… PSP SHUTS DOWN!
The System Info only shows OFW 6.35. I uninstalled-reinstalled PRO-B8 several times and still the same result.
Any tips Sylv3r? I wanna cry. T_T
Run the installer again, select uninstall PRO-B8. Then download the files for the installer again. This happened to me when I was installing PRO-B8 on my PSP Go as well.
try 6.35 pro b6 or pro b7 for now… maybe there could be a bug in pro b8? (i am using b7 btw…)
I upgraded to the first release of Pro-B8 and it simply shutdown my PSP, I waited a bit and Team PRO released a fresh version (which is what are on the links on this post) and it worked fine. 🙂
Thank you very much! Turns out I downloaded the early release with bugs. Researching around, there have been 3 releases of PRO-B8:
PRO-B8 Nightly Build (v1/beta)
PRO-B8 Official v2 (buggy, causes PSP to shutdown) – the one I got
PRO-B8 Official v3 (final, immediately replaced v2) – the one posted here
so… I bet I should upgrade to PRO-B8 right?
Pretty much yeah. V3 works as it should.
Whew… went through long contemplation before I finally decided to move on from 5.03 GEN-C. Glad I did.
Just wondering, any reasons why OFW 6.35 is more favorable over OFW 6.39 considering both can run LCFWs?
6.35 and 6.20 are running on a different exploit compared to 6.39. Without going into too much jargon, just think of 6.35 as more compatible with all the homebrew that’s available right now.
yeah… all homebrews are compatible… you can even emulate most video game consoles such as the atari 2600 and sega genesis…
before upgrading buy new Memory stick, backup my save games from my old memory and copy it to the new one. used the new memory then upgrade to pro-b8. but all my save games are corrupted. recopied again from my backup but it says corrupted also. can i still fix my save games
From what CFW did you upgrade from? Corrupted savedata is a common risk when updating. Lucky for me, my savedata worked fine from GEN-C to PRO-B8.
from PRO-B7, i think due to the new memory stick i bought, copy from my old fake Sony to Sandisk
You can try uninstalling PRO-B8 and re-install PRO-B7 again, just to confirm if it’s corruption due to copying or upgrading.
can’t do that anymore. i manage to brick my PSP. stupid of me, i activated my plugins after i installed 6.20 PRO-B8. while installing the perma patch when i press O i also pressed note key (screenshot plugins) walla hang ups.. after a while nothing happens i shut it off.. now it won’t open/boot. power is green memory activity blinks endlessly untill my battery drains. my mistake…
Have you tried:
It will trigger a emergency uninstall of Pro-B8
if that does option does not do. I think the installation of perma patch was incomplete. does sony phils. accept reflashing? or need to buy a mobo?
Not really sure if you’ll need a new motherboard but it doesn’t hurt to ask Sony for help.
i have PSP 2000 TA-088v3 mobo. i heard ErikPshat already making a project for unbricking. i can’t read his forum its in russian. i think.
Does this also work with PSPVita?
The Vita isn’t even out yet O_O
Sorry I realized it was a dumb question right after I posted it. ^_^;
1) Does it brick my psp if I install the 6.39 pro b8 directly from 6.39 pro b7 running on perma patch (cipl flasher).
2) Does it make any significant improvement over 6.39 pro b7 to trigger for an update?
thanks a lot.
1.) Yes it can. Be sure to uninstall the permapatch, revert to OFW before installing the new update.
2.) Check the changelog. If you’re experiencing bugs, errors, etc I’d recommend you update. If not, then no.
my firmware is already 6.39 and currently using the pro b7. do i have to downgrade and then upgrade it again before installing this CFW?.
Or I just have to uninstall the pro b7 and install this one?.
To be safe, I would recommend running the uninstallation option before copying and installing the new version.
i forgot. on my PSPgo.
I’ve a question… before upgrading from pro b7 to pro b8 from a PSP 3006 model, should I revert back to OFW first? Or is it okay to just update anyway even if the LCFW is still running? Which has less bricking probability?
Also… how do I revert back to OFW? Is it the usual reseting by holding the on/off switch of the PSP?
TO revert, just run the installer and press triangle to uninstall, it will reboot your PSP to OFW.
Reverting before upgrading is the safest path when upgrading.
so… does that mean reverting to OFW before upgrading to LCFW is 100% safe? Or there is still a chance of bricking?
First of all thanks for this! This is my first custom FW and it works great on my 6.35 3000. Just one question: Is there any way to avoid reinstalling the custom FW after every reboot or am I doing something wrong?
Thanks again and keep up the good work!
I’m afraid not. AFAIK, This is a temporary CFW.
I already asked this to sylv3rblade if you don’t believe me.
Technically, you don’t need to “re-install”, you just have to re-activate since it’s already installed. That’s what the FastRecovery is for. Have fun!
if u wanted a permanent patch u can try downgrade u’r ofw to 6.20 and install 6.20 Pro B8.
since with 6.20 u can permanently patched Pro series and one of the reason i stay with 6.20 ofw
i got 6.20 pro-b8 to work perfectly, the only problem im having is finding a way to translate japanese games to english, any ideas? my friend said there a plugin for it in b8, that true?
also, pro rulez, luv it
There’s no plugin for that. You need to wait for a patched copy of the game.
I just want to ask… which is better? the Pro B versions like Pro B8 or 5.50 GEN D3 (which is for hackable psps only)
A few months ago, I would prefer 5.50 GEN-D3 but with the latest releases of the Pro LCFW, I would say that it’s up to your preference (meaning if you want the features available on 6.xx or not).
Hmm… so does that mean they are equal? Im just kinda confused because my classmate has a PSP 2000 before and said that 5.50 GEN D3 is the best and most stable cfw and runs all games (even god of war ghost of sparta) smoothly… is that true? :/
hi i have psp 3000. im on 6.35 pro b8. do i need to update my psp version to 6.39? then get the 6.35 pro b8? or i can still stay at 6.35? what is the difference of the 2 version? will 6.39 work on my psp 3k which is not hackable? thanks in advance

Keep it as it is. Both versions are technically the same except for the firmware they are running on.
sir silverblade kailangan ko p po bang idelete ung files n 6.35hen+prom iso loader tpus install ko etong pro-b8?
thanks kuya silverblade gumana n ung pro-b8 nkalaru n din ..thanks your the man..!!
no prob 🙂
sylv3rblade i wanted to ask something in one of the comment here someone name Panasoni ask about
installing pro-b8 straight from Pro-b7 running on perma patch (cipl flasher).
Now what i wanted to asked it said perma patch. does it mean that pro-b7 can be permanently pathced? or it is only for full hackable PSP?
The CIPL flasher is only for fully hackable PSPs.
I have PSP 3000 4g; im using 6.35 PRO-B8.
I copied an UMD through the USB ISO Mode onto my comp and then back onto the ms0:ISO folder on the memory stick. The game ISO, DJMAX Fever has a problem in that after a few minutes of playing scratchy sounds start occurring and the sound becomes all sorts of pitches. The game flashes, and then the PSP shuts off. This doesn’t happen with the umd. Is the ISO bad? Do I need to patch the game to make it compatible with 6.35-B8?
It’s probably a bad dump. Try looking for an iso on the web instead
Thanks, I figured that out. I downloaded a patched ISO for cfw that isn’t having that problem.
That leads to one more question though. I had to downgrade my PSP-3000 from 6.38 which I installed before I considered cfw for it. So I used 6.3x Downgrader and then installed 6.35 PRO-B8. Iv’e tried using both iso tools 1.978 and 1.977 and neither work, I can’t patch or dump files. The PSP shuts off midway, resetting the cfw. I am using the wrong version; should I be using iso tools 1.975 for my instead?
Reportingg, the Filesonic link (mirror 2) for 6.20 PRO-B8 were missing (this file has been deleted)
Will be re-uploading in a bit. 6.20 Pro-B9 is up BTW.
hehehe my antusiasm for 6.20 Pro-B9 got me this time.
I saw that 6.20 Pro-B9 are up,
download it and delete my pro-B8 Master. and it hit me….. my psp are still on Pro-B8 permanent patch … Silly me.
That’s why i try to dl Pro-B8 again.
And found about the broken link.
thought i report it here 😀
This site is one of my faf. so at least that i can help. Keep going sylv3rblade.
Always rooting for u and those magnificent guy or ladies that helping me make my PSP better cherrs

ask ko lang po,
pag naglalaro ako ng dj max portable 3, after playing 3 songs the screen and sound become so glitchy,. at nkita ko sa other forums na maraming ganung case.. ano ba solution dun… i really want to play dj max portable 3… thanks in advance! 🙂
With the case of DJ Max Portable 3, it’s DRM. I haven’t heard of anything being able to bypass it.
so there’s no other way to play DJ Max Portable 3 in my psp…. Dati kc nalalaro ko un, gamit ko 5.03 gen-c kaso pinalitan ko firmware ko kc ung ibang games hnd gumagana dun…. sayang naman 🙁 btw thanks!
Natry mo ioff yung NoDRM?
kuya silverBLADE ask ko lang bkt ayaw gumana ng dj max port 3,tekken 6,2k12,
eh ung dj max black square gumana sa akin ..answer po kuya silver ..6.35 pro b8 gamit ko
gumagana ba iyan sa PSP 3000?
Yes, compatible upto the PSP Go.
hi syl will the downgrader work for psp 3006 9g ofw 6.35
Unfortunately nope. There is a 9g downgrader released but it’s not recommended unless you’re absolutely sure you’re not going to upgrade again (re-upgrading is a hassle).
