View Full Version : PSP from 1.50 (custom) to latest (or close) with 32mb stick, possible?

April 15th, 2009, 16:18

I just got my PSP today and been playing around with it and got it to load 1.50 through the TIFF exploit. (Ran a 2.71 downgrader .exe file which placed the necessary files on the 32mb stick,) I had to go into "Photos" and a red screen appeared successfully.

Now I want to upgrade to a higher CFW since 1.50 refuses to play newer games (plus the games that came with the PSP.. Both games need FW2.0+)

But all I have is the 32mb stick that came with the thing. I have a 1GB SD Card but I'm well aware SD Cards don't work with PSP's..

All guides I followed became at least 34MB since FW1.50 and another (FW3.0+) is required in the process for some reason. =(

Is there any way to update to the newest CFW with the 32mb card? I can't get a bigger card before the end of next month, and I know no one who has a PSP near me.. Please tell me this is possible?

you could try upgrading in stages from this Site (http://alek.dark-alex.org/filez/dax/) but am not sure if it possible with a 32mb stick, you could always buy a micro-sd convertor to psp thing they might be cheaper to buy then a new psp memory card but just look around memory cards get cheaper but just becarful of fake memory cards and such

Hey! Thanks for the reply! :)

I found another guide where I was able to pull it off with the 32mb card!
Am running on CFW 3.90 M33 (if I'm correct) and can run homebrew perfectly!

Now to find a guide which can get me from 3.90 M33 to 5.xx M33..

Is it actually worth it to upgrade? What are the benefits?

You mean UMD's like for piracy? Meh, no thanks.

Then I guess I'm good to go with 3.90 M33.

Thanks! :)
